The much anticipated X-Men #1 featuring the first ever all female line up is slated to be released later this month! Writer Brian Wood and artist Oliver Coipel are the creative team behind this adjective-less X-Men title. Lead by Storm, Rogue, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Grey, Rogue & Psylocke make up the team.
The plot synopsis is as follows:
An old enemy shows up at the X-Men’s door, seeking asylum from an ancient evil come back to Earth. Meanwhile, Jubilee has come home, and she’s brought with her an orphaned baby who might hold the key to the Earth’s survival, or its destruction! With an imminent alien invasion and an eons-spanning war between brother and sister around the corner, Storm steps up and puts together a team to protect the child and stop a new threat that could destroy all life in the Marvel Universe!
I can’t express just how excited I am for this title. Brian Wood is a fantastic writer, Oliver Coipel’s pencils are solid and the team is made up of some of my favorite X-Men characters. Not to mention, the best part of all, mohawk Storm! To sweeten the deal even more, when you buy a copy of X-Men #1 you’ll recieve a promo code for a free digital copy that you can down with the Marvel app. X-Men #1 will be available in stores May 29. Until then, enjoy the five page preview below:
