Marvel Reveals New X-Men Team

Marvel Comics has revealed the latest X-Men team to join the Marvel Universe.

Jean seems pretty okay with poaching mutants from other teams as Nightcrawler, who is currently a member Kitty Pryde’s X-Men Gold team, is among the X-Men Red roster. Also joining the red team is Wolverine – Laura Kinney – and her clone Gabby, Namor the Sub-Mariner, the Wakandan mutant Gentle, and a brand new character called Trinary.

Take a look at the teaser art below.

X-Men Red is being written by Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine) and drawn by Mahmud Asrar (Wolverine and the X-Men), with covers by Travis Charest.

“As an X-Men fan, as a Jean Grey fan, as a Mahmud Asrar fan, and as a Travis Charest fan, to be asked to write X-Men Red is a dream,” Taylor said in an earlier press release. “The time is right for an X-Men book like this, and I’m very excited about the story we’re telling in these pages. I’m excited for Jean Grey’s vision for the world, and I can’t wait for Marvel readers to meet our team of established fan-favorites and brand new mutants, and to see them in action. To write a core X-Men book is to walk in the footsteps of giants, so I’m hoping my secret mutant ability is sudden foot-growth.”

“Jean Grey has been one of my favorite characters ever since the Dark Phoenix Saga, so I’m pretty excited to be a part of her return,” said Asrar. “The stories we plan to tell really captures the essence of the X-Men I read lovingly growing up. It’s just a delight to be working with this team. I have been working on many components of this book, including the designs of the characters old and new, and I haven’t been this eager to see the response to this book in a long while.”

X-Men Red #1 goes on sale February 7, 2018.
