The meaning behind those vampire/X-Men teasers is revealed, plus some other news from the X-Men panel at C2E2!
Those X-Men teasers released last week that seemed to indicate something would be going on with the X-Men and the vampire portion of the Marvel Universe has been revealed to signal a new series simply titled X-Men (no word yet on whether this will replace a current X-Book, bu tit is confirmed that X-Men Legacy WILL continue), by Victor Gischler and Paco Madina. The series will differ in tone from the other X-Books by focusing on Avengers-like, world threatening events, and the X-Men as superheroes rather than mutant rights activists or soldiers. The X-Men will be more integrated into the Marvel Universe.
Dark Wolverine will get a new number one, relaunching as Daken: Dark Wolverine by Marjorie Liu Daniel Way and Giuseppe Camuncoli.
Wolverine will get his own self-titled book back, with Jason Aaron’s and Renato Guedes’s Wolverine number 1 launching in September (no word on whether Wolverine: Weapon X will continue).
X-23 will get a new series starting in September.
X-Force will be relaunched with a new number one by Rick Remender, with Wolverine heading up a new team of unrevealed members (some early guesses: Archangel, Fantomex). The book will feature Wolverine’s team taking on Apocalypse.
