Marvel has fully revealed which mutants make up the new team, when the title relaunches with a brand-new number 1 this July.
Writer Charles Soule promises that Old Man Logan, Archangel, Mystique, Rogue, Gambit, Bishop, Psylocke, and Fantomex will face some formidable foes. “The book is designed to tell a very focused, specific story, with a few cool main villains,” says series writer Charles Soule. “I’m writing it like a puzzle box, with new layers and reveals opening up every issue. So, you’ll never know exactly where it’s going to go next – but the structure is built in such a way that almost anything from the long, incredible history of the X-Men can pop up. If you think about these characters, they’ve been present or involved for virtually every major era of X history, all the big events. That’ll play a role in a big way.”
