Novidades na Comic Con:



O primeiro painel de sexta-feira na Marvel na San Diego Comic Com foi exclusivo dos títulos X-relacionados. Para falar das novidades mutantes, a mesa reuniu Arune Singh, os editores Axel Alonso e Nick Lowe, além dos escritores Rick Remender, Kieron Gillen, Matt Fraction, Marjorie Liu, Daniel Way, Peter David,Victor Gischler, Chris Yost, e Craig Kyle.

Foi divulgado que, nos próximos meses, os títulos-X terão capas que formam o belíssimo pôster acima, pelas mãos de Marco Djurdjevic.





A grande novidade do painel dos X-Men foi o anúncio de que “Generation Hope” será uma série que começa a ser lançada em Novembro. Os roteiros estão a cargo de Kieron Gillen, mas o desenhista não foi anunciado. A história é derivada do próximo arco de Uncanny X-Men e terá Esperança como sua personagem principal.

No arco “Five Ligths”, que serve como prelúdio para “Generation Hope”, também teremos, conforme prometido por Matt Fraction há alguns meses, mais sobre Kitty Pride. A personagem também será a protagonista de “Girl Comics” #3, por Carla Speed Mc Neill, que conta a história do primeiro porre de Kitty.

Axel Alonso afirmou que há uma grande probabilidade de Cable estar morto, o que levanta a hipótese de que ele tenha sobrevivido. Uma pista pode estar no pôster de Djurdjevic, que reúne tanto Cable, quanto Bishop.

Entre as notícias que já eram conhecidas dos fãs, estão os lançamentos de várias mensais ligados ao Universo Wolverine. A principal, chamada de “Wolverine”, será escrita por Jason Aaron e levará Logan ao Inferno no primeiro arco. Teremos algumas pistas sobre o paradeiro de Dentes-de-Sabre, provavelmente no Inferno. As séries “Daken” e “X-23” estarão envolvidas com o que acontece em “Wolverine”, embora não haja um crossover propriamente dito.

Em dezembro, uma quarta série vem se juntar ao material: “Wolverine: The Best There Is”, escrita por Charlie Huston e desenhada por Juan Jose Ryp. O editor Alex Alonso falou que este título tratará do futuro de Logan, em vez do passado, tema recorrente nas revistas que temos hoje nos Estados Unidos.

Wolverine continuará liderando um grupo mutante: “Uncanny X-Force”, formada em Second Coming. A equipe ganha uma mensal pelas mãos de Rick Remender. A primeirão missão terá a ressurreição de Apocalipse e a X-Force permanecerá em segredo até mesmo de Ciclope. Em uma das imagens reveladas, temos o acréscimo de X-23 e de outro personagem que poderia ser Daken, visto o número de garras nas mãos.

Infelizmente, Craig Kyle confirmou que ele e Chris Yost darão um tempo no universo mutante depois de X-Force: Sex and Violence.

Em X-Factor, não há planos para aparições de Ruby Summers, e Peter David garantiu que ela não virá tão cedo para o presente e que qualquer história com a personagem se passará no futuro. Um personagem da equipe sairá na edição #214, mas Lupina estará de volta nos próximos meses.

X-Men Legacy terá a volta dos Filhos da Câmara já no próximo arco, que se passa na Índia. Os editores não deram notícias muito animadoras para aqueles que são fãs do casal Vampira e Gambit, o que indica que ambos continuarão separados.

Em Novos Mutantes, foi dito que o próximo arco – o qual se iniciou essa semana nos Estados Unidos – será um dos mais brutais do título e estará relacionado a alguns elementos relacionados à Illyanna, que foram levantados nas primeiras edições do título.

Astonishing X-Men continua seguindo o formato de minissérie, e Alex Alonso disse que, em breve, será anunciada a equipe criativa da mini que sucede Xenogenesis.

Quanto a Destrutor e os outros X-Men que estão no espaço, o editor Lowe garantiu que eles voltarão para a Terra, mas não soube precisar quando. Em tom de brincadeira, disse que quando Destrutor voltar, ele será morto na edição seguinte.

Depois de uma sequência de crossovers mutantes, que culminou em Second Coming, as grandes sagas darão um tempo dentro das histórias dos X-Men. Ainda não há previsão para um grande evento nos próximos meses.

Sobre Generation Hope:

Spoiler:


Since their first appearance way back in September 1963's "The X-Men" #1, the titular characters have been fighting to protect a world that fears and hates them because of their mutant powers. Forty years later, the X-Men's long struggle had made them one of the Marvel Universe's premier super teams, but in the climax of January 2006's "House of M," the reality altering mutant known as the Scarlet Witch used her ability to depower most of the mutants around the world and keep new mutants from being born. Suddenly the X-Men weren't fighting to fit in; they were fighting to survive.

Hope seemed lost until the X-Men found a glimmer of it in the 2007-2008 storyline known as "Messiah CompleX." In that storyline, a new mutant baby was born. She became a symbol the X-Men could rally around, a possible mutant messiah that might be able to reignite the mutant race. The X-Men's leader, Cyclops, had such faith in the baby that he sent her into the future to be raised by his time traveling son, Cable. In the "Cable" ongoing series, the baby came to be known as Hope and the title character raised her from infant to teenager.

In the latest X-Men crossover event, "Second Coming," the teenaged Hope and Cable returned to the present day. It was a brutal and violent tale that found the X-Men under siege from anti-mutant forces that wanted to kill Hope and destroy mutant kind forever. At the end of the storyline, Cyclops's faith was rewarded as the mutant finding computer Cerebro lit up with five lights representing new mutants whose powers just activated. In the current "Uncanny X-Men" storyline "The Five Lights" the X-Men are racing to find this next generation of mutants. Then in November these new mutants will take center stage as writer Kieron Gillen and a currently unrevealed artist begin their new ongoing series "Generation Hope", which was announced today at Marvel's X-Men panel at the San Diego Comic Con. CBR News spoke with Gillen about the project.

For several years now the X-Men have been hoping and praying for new mutants to appear in the world. In "The Five Lights" and "Generation Hope" they'll discover that they should be careful what they wish for.

"Something strange is going on. Things are not right. The process that caused mutants to develop is slightly out of wack. The 'machinery' isn't making mutants as they should be. When they activate they become both a danger to themselves and a danger to the world. Basically there's something mysteriously wrong with these mutants and the X-Men are hoping they can stabilise them – and find the method to do that," Gillen told CBR News. "So the idea that things are all right with the world post-Second Coming is deceptive. New mutants are appearing but things aren't back to "normal". The X-Men have fought and some of them died for this mutant messiah but it's not a case of the sun coming up and everybody living happily ever after. This is a mutated mutation. It isn't exactly what they're used to. Generation Hope' is about making sure that these new mutants that are appearing don't hurt themselves or others."

The five new mutants that compose the new cast of "Generation Hope" come from all over the world. At the end of "X-Men: Second Coming" #2 Cerebro's lights came on in the countries of Mexico, Canada, Nigeria, the Ukraine, and Japan. "We wanted an international cast with their own views on the world," Gillen said. "These are mutants and "pure" is probably the best way of describing their powers. Mutants aren't based on power sets. Their based on an ability they've developed because of mutation. So me and Matt ["Uncanny X-Men" writer Matt Fraction] spent a lot of time trying to work out some different takes on traditional powers; ways to make them interesting and dramatic. And a lot of it is based on personality types, because fundamentally this is a group of teenagers between the ages of 14 through 19."

The young cast of "Generation Hope" will most certainly need instruction in the use of their mutant abilities, but the mysterious new nature of mutation and the unique position these new characters find themselves in means that Gillen's new series isn't your typical young mutants in training book. "It's an extreme take on that concept. That may be be one way of looking at it. They are a group of new mutants but when the X-Men find these new mutants they might not necessarily want to be in training," Gillen explained. "Some of these people are superhero types but this book is about saving new mutants. So saving them might not necessarily mean taking them in and training them in how to use their powers to save the world. Some of them may not have any control over their powers and are in danger because of it. So this book is about saving the future of the mutant race.


"It's a very character driven book," Gillen continued. "Early on, when Matt and I were discussing these characters, we were instantly like, 'Oh yeah! This guy would do this, this and this.' There is one character, the Ukrainian, where I've got a list of scenes I'm waiting to write. It's like when he first meets this X-character he's going to do this. He's almost a force of nature in that way."

The main cast of "Generation Hope" won't just be composed of new characters. Other X-Men will regularly pop up in supporting roles, and the mutant messiah Hope will become a core member of the cast. "She's a very developed character now, and she's a lot of fun to write. She's conflicted and very angry. She's really resisted the idea of being a messiah, at least so far. Will that maintain? During the ego trip days of adolescence you can go back and forth between certain roles," Gillen stated. "Your ego is a complicated thing. You'll often resist things that are thrust upon you and occasionally flip around and embrace them."

Gillen told CBR that he is enjoying the chance to write the teenage cast of "Generation Hope." "Obviously, teenagers are people. They just haven't been exposed to everything that limits their perception. So when it comes to change, especially the kind of accelerated changes you see in comic books, teenagers tend to take that really well. They're exactly the same as everybody else but they get to the point quicker," the writer remarked. "That's how they process things. Their brakes don't quite work, which is interesting. They're out of control vehicles. I like looking at people who are like that."

When "Generation Hope" #1 hits stores, four of the five new mutants will have been found. "The last character is sort of a tricky one, and the first arc is essentially about them," Gillen said. "Plus our first arc involves setting up all these different ideas. It's not 'Everything falls into line, mutants are back.' In extreme cases, it can be very disturbing. Things may be trying to go back to where they are but the process that creates mutants in the Marvel Universe has fundamentally warped. It's no longer working properly. Not that I'm saying there are mystical reasons behind how mutants are produced – but what's going on here is a mystery and the book is about that.

"It's also about the next generation of mutants. So what does that mean?" Gillen continued. "My cast is a bunch of kids and I'm interested a little in the idea of a generation gap. For five years now, there have been no new mutants. So these characters are separated from that community. It's not like their immediately part of this big family. In 'Second Coming,' you saw how Hope was being treated. People are very interested in her. These kids are sort of in the same boat. So there's definitely that element to it. It's like what happens when people get what they want? It seems like those who pray for a messiah are often very likely to nail that messiah to a cross."

While the X-Men and the larger mutant community of the Marvel Universe is based in San Francisco, much of the action in "Generation Hope" will take place in various parts of the globe. "The initial thrust of this book is that mutants are emerging and you have to go all over the world to find them," Gillen revealed. "So I'm not saying that any more new mutants will emerge right away, but if they do, this is the book where we'll go out to find them."


People across the globe suddenly becoming mutants and developing powerful and dangerous super abilities is a phenomenon that's bound to have political ramifications. "When these new mutants emerge they immediately become persons of interest to the world. We'll ask questions like, what do these individuals actually want? And what do people want from them?" Gillen remarked. "Say a mutant arises in a country with a dictator. He's not going to let the X-Men have the mutant, is he? Another example might be a mutant emerging in Iron Fist's City Kun' Lun. A mutant emerging there would have immediate societal impact. And as you can imagine, we can easily get plots out of how society responds to mutants based on what they can do and what the X-Men may have to do to make a situation 'all better.' And of course 'all better' has various kinds of definitions."

The cast of "Generation Hope" won't just have to overcome larger political forces. They'll often find themselves in positions where the number one threat they're facing is the situation they're currently involved in. "How these characters' powers emerge and what they are actually like when their powers emerge are big factors in this book," Gillen said. "Things are tricky for a variety of reasons. It's plain haywire. They are mentally unsuited for the powers they've been given. So the fundamentals of our plots come from who these people are, where they arise, and the conflicts that arise from that."

That clash of powers, personalities and politics will allow Gillen to tell both large scale and very intimate stories in "Generation Hope." "The first arc is quite deliberately epic on a sort of city smashing scale but there are stories that I want to do on the opposite end of the scale, which are completely intimate. Like an issue about a private loss of something precious due to the change," the writer revealed. "That's what interested me about the book; the varying scale of it, from the micro-to-the-macro. There are all these interesting things that come with becoming a mutant and people respond to them in different ways. When you become a mutant the life you had the day before is just gone. So what do you do when all this change is forced into your life? That's a perfect question for generating stories with all sorts of different scales."

In "Generation Hope," the future of the X-Men and mutantkind has arrived. The themes and tone of the series will often be about the quest to decide what that all means. "To me this book is about the future; about various people wrestling with the concept of what the future is. We all try to decide what that is everyday and we usually reach a sort of group consensus. The group in 'Generation Hope' kind of forms around that," Gillen explained. " Individually there's one member of the team who's a complete nihilist. He doesn't believe in the concept of the future. That's the cause and the conceit of the first few issues were doing. And that's kind of an overall theme of the book. That question of what is the future and how does it relate to youth and how youths relate to people in power? These are the big amorphous themes I'm thinking about when writing them."

Gillen would love for "Generation Hope" to have a long and fruitful future because the writer has plenty of stories to tell about the next generation of Marvel's mutants. "When Matt and I started talking about this I had some ideas. Then I went on a train ride to Wales and I started writing and writing. This was even before we got to the central core of the team and all the dovetailing character plots. There was basically three years of stories on that sheet of paper," the writer said. "They're not all good stories. I think only about half of them are quite interesting [Laughs]. But that's just an example of how much stuff just gushed out, which is always a good sign."

"With 'S.W.O.R.D.' I very much planned for five issues because I thought it might be canceled [Laughs]. I was aware that launching a new book is tricky... but I also knew that to launch a book you have to think of the long term character arcs and how long it would progress before the status quo would have to change dramatically," Gillen continued. "And I know where the status quo will have to change with 'Generation Hope'. In other words, that destination is really "So – what's this generation all about then?" That's a big question and should keep me busy for ages."


Foi anunciada na Comic Com uma nova mensal mutante: Generation Hope, que terá como protagonista a messias Esperança. A personagem surgiu em Complexo de Messias, passou muito tempo dividindo com Nathas Summers a revista “Cable” e voltou recentemente do futuro para o grande evento “Second Coming”. Tendo derrotado Bastion, Esperança renovou a fé de Scott de que ela seja a salvadora mutante.
Ao final de “Second Coming” também, cinco novas assinaturas apareceram ao redor do mundo, detectadas por Cerebra. O novo arco de Uncanny X-Men se chama “The Five Lights” e mostrará os X-Men atrás dessa nova geração de mutantes. A partir de novembro, esse plot passará a ser desenvolvido em Generation Hope, com roteiros de Kieron Gillen.
De acordo com Gillen, o processo de mutação desses novos personagens é estranho e trará alguns mistérios para os X-Men resolverem. Enquanto o surgimento de novos mutantes deveria significar que a espécie está voltando ao normal em sua caminhada evolutiva, veremos que não é bem assim e essas novas mutações não são o que os X-Men estavam esperando.
Os cinco novos mutantes apareceram no México, no Canadá, na Ucrânia, na Nigéria e no Japão. Gillen afirmou que eles são personagens bastante interessantes e com personalidades diferentes, embora todos sejam adolescentes entre 14 e 19 anos. Quando os X-Men encontrá-los, eles não necessariamente vão querer ser treinados. A história será sobre salvar novos mutantes – o futuro da raça - e não necessariamente montar uma nova equipe de X-Men.

O elenco principal de Generation Hope não será composto apenas pelos novos personagens e por Esperança. Outros X-Men aparecerão no título, mas Gillen não precisou quais.
O primeiro arco será focado nos cinco novos mutantes e na questão da peculiaridade de seu processo de mutação. A ação acontecerá ao redor do globo e não ficará restrita a São Francisco. Com a emergência de mutantes em diferentes países, inclusive ramificações políticas surgirão. Como lidar com um mutante, que é ditador de um importante país? Esse tipo de questionamento estará na cabeça das pessoas,q uando a mutação se manifestar em diversas partes do mundo.

Fraction está fora de Uncanny X-Men:

Spoiler:
The past several months have been an intense time for theX-Men . During the crossover storyline “Second Coming,” the time-hopping X-Man known as Cable returned to the present with his foster daughter, the teenage mutant Hope, who many believed to be a messiah for mutantkind. That's because Hope was the only new mutant born after the Scarlet Witch lost her grip on sanity and used her powers to rewrite reality in the MarvelUniverse, in the course reducing the ranks of mutantkind to about 200 people. At the end of “Second Coming,” the X-Men's faith in Hope was rewarded when the young girl was able to use her mysterious mutant abilities to help destroy a massive cybernetic threat to mutantkind and apparently trigger the evolution of five new mutants.
So after a few bleak years, things are starting to look up for the X-Men. They're still focusing on protecting their people and the island community Utopia in San Francisco Bay, but they're also working harder to protect humanity again. With this new era comes new challenges, threats, and dangers. In the current arc of “Uncanny X-Men ” writers Matt Fraction and Kieron Gillen are chronicling the X-Men's exploits in this new era together. This April, though, Gillen will become the sole writer of the title. CBR News spoke with him about his plans for the book, and checkMarvel.com for an interview with editor Nick Lowe on "Uncanny's" new direction.
Gillen has been dabbling in the X-Universe for some time. Before joining Fraction as co-writer of “Uncanny X-Men”he wrote stories for various X-related one-shots and anthologies as well as penning the series “S.W.O.R.D.,” which focused on the Sentient Wold Observation and Response Department, a secret alien defense and relations agency that debuted in “Astonishing X-Men.” Recently, Gillen kicked off the ongoing series “Generation Hope,” which follows the exploits of Hope and the five new mutants she activated at the end of “Second Coming.” So the writer is extremely excited to begin his run as the sole the writer of the flagship book in the X-Men franchise.
“I feel awesome. Being the sole write of 'Uncanny X-Men' is both a responsibility and an exciting challenge,” Gillen told CBR News. “It's a mixture of trying to make a book that's fundamentally about the future and for the future, and understanding the import of all the stuff you're building upon; the idea that there's this enormous creation that generations have put all their fears, hopes, and ideas into and now you're the custodian of that. It's such a big stage and you can do so much with it. So I want to make state-of-the-art super hero comic books. It's going to be great.”
Fraction is passing the “Uncanny X-Men” torch to Gillen in much the same way writer Ed Brubaker handed it to him in 2008. The two collaborated on the book for a short time and then Fraction began his run as the book's sole writer. Gillen and Fraction began their collaboration on “Uncanny X-Men” with the second chapter of the book's current arc, "Quarantine," in stores now, and when that arc wraps Gillen will become the book's sole writer.
“This is a book where continuity matters. And when I say continuity I don't mean in making sure the character's got the right hat in the flashback. I mean the continuity in terms of the flow of it,” Gillen explained. “This is an ongoing book and while I have my own style, interests, and obsessions the idea of making it flow in an interesting way is important to me. It's easier because the fact that I was writing the book with Matt means the character arcs are my arcs as well. When I took over 'Thor,' I wanted to make sure that the stuff that I was doing was in key with the stuff that [previous writer J. Michael Straczynski] had done previously, before segueing naturally towards where I was taking it, and then elegantly dropping it where Matt took over.”
Gillen's first solo “Uncanny X-Men” issue is the special #534.1, which features art by Carlos Pacheco (“Ultimate Thor”). “It takes place immediately after 'Quarantine' and before my next arc. It's a stand alone issue, but it sets up stuff for the arc I'm planning after that and for stuff I'm planning to do later. We wanted it to be a single issue where people could just get up to speed with what the X-Men are right now. In the issue, I'm picking up the facts that Magneto is on Utopia and the X-Men have hired PR rep Kate Kildare, which Matt showed back in issue #528,” Gillen said. “I thought the idea of doing something about Magneto's public image was interesting. That's the big perennial issue with mutants. Everyone hates them. We talk about trying to involve the press to mitigate against that. So one of the key parts of the point one issue is essentially Kate and Magneto facing off and arguing about this. There's a confrontation involving what Magneto is and what she wants him to be – and at the same time there's a super hero tale going on in the other dovetailing plot. There's an enormous threat to San Francisco in the form of this destructive device and the X-Men are trying to find it before it goes off. So we've got an immediate threat being juxtaposed with this long term threat.”
The events of "Uncanny X-Men" #534.1 come about because of Magneto's activities in the recent "X-Men: Legacy" arc "Fables of the
Reconstruction," which saw the Master of Magnetism join a team of X-Men in helping to rebuild some San Francisco buildings that were damaged during "Second Coming." “That was public enough to get camera phone shots,” Gillen explained. “So there's a magazine story that's about to happen and Kate stomps on it and says, 'You've got to give this magazine an exclusive on Magneto or they're going to run with a very negative story.' Kate has got the worst job in the world, as Matt wrote in that initial scene with her where she says, 'I'm going to need overtime. Lots and lots of overtime.'”
Over the course of his career as a super villain, Magneto did many horrible things. So different people are enraged by his presence in the X-Men for different reasons. Gillen feels though that the act that most people are still upset and disgusted by is Magneto's assault on New York City, which happened in writer Grant Morrison and artist Phil Jimenez's 2004 “New X-Men” storyline, “Planet X.”
“Magneto has done many terrible things but the biggest and most public thing he did in recent memory was New York. Of course we as readers know he didn't do that," Gillen laughed. "That was actually an impostor, but the public doesn't know that. As far as they know Magneto is the guy who did that horrific thing to New York. You could write a whole graphic novel about stuff Magneto did or didn't do. That's why I'm kind of focusing on New York, as a singular example of the larger problem. So if Kate and the X-Men can sell this they can probably sell most things.
“It's a hard sell though, and I don't want to spoil the comic, but Kate has her theories on how you can do it. Essentially this story involves the question of, what is PR? What is propaganda? Magneto takes a Machiavellian approach to things and wonders why people shouldn't be scared of him. He feels if they're scared they won't try anything. He says, 'Machiavelli said it's better to be feared than loved.' Then Kate reminds him, 'No, Machiavelli argued that the best position is to be both feared and loved.' So these are charged and interesting issues.”
Examining Magneto's membership in the X-Men also allowed Gillen the chance to comment on the current goals of the group. “The idea of the X-Men at the moment is that, with 'Second Coming' over, they've won their war. Now it's a question of can they win the peace? During their wartime standing, Scott had to do some difficult and questionable things. Now they're having to do something else," Gillen said. "Can the X-Men actually make all hang this together? The main reason Magneto is working with them is that Scott has managed to do what he never did, which is unite the mutant race. That's a huge thing. Now the question is, can he keep that together? That's where a lot of stories can come from. The theme of many of my arcs will go back to the 'Quarantine' story I did with Matt. The X-Men are trying to make a community. So what do you need to build a community? What do you need to build this mutant facility and make it work?”
The mandate of Marvel's “Point One” initiative is to create single issues that serve as both an introduction to a series and establish upcoming storylines, which is why Gillen chose to make Magneto the central figure in the point one issue of “Uncanny X-Men.” “As a tiny statement of where the X-Men are right now, it sums up a lot. They work on a public stage. Everyone knows who they are. There's not many of them and the idea of Magneto operating publicly with the X-Men, who are now a public organization, working from a set place where everyone can find them, is a fun way to introduce readers to the status quo of the book. Even people who don't read comics know who Magneto is. If they've watched the films, they even know his philosophy – in fact, I don't think there's another supervillain in the whole of comics who you could say that about. That alone makes him a compelling character to focus on for an introduction story. I want to be able to hand this issue to my mum and know that she'd be interested in the questions and the actions,” Gillen said. “The X-Men are a really interesting device for talking about the idea of public and private lives, reputation, and how mutants react to the world. They feed very, very easily into the media-saturated times we live in. As a guy who's worked as a journalist and been involved in this kind of stuff, it's interesting to do that and feed that into the super hero genre and see what happens.”
April also marks the beginning of Gillen's first solo “Uncanny X-Men” arc. “One of the things I want to do, and I don't know how much people will notice, is to make it a little more arc-focused than it has been. I like the idea, though, that there would be essentially two major arcs of 'Uncanny X-Men' a year. Imagine it as if there were two movies a year, which would naturally mean there's more ties between them. So I want each arc to make an individual statement, but also comment on the previous arc, set up the threat of the next arc, and the long term. So look for that kind of long term planning,” Gillen said. “Plus, since the X-Men have such a big cast, I want to make each arc concentrate a bit more on specific characters. So my first story is primarily about Kitty and Colossus. There will of course be stuff with characters like Emma, Scott, and Logan, but in each arc there's real, meaningful character development, they face the trouble, and then they take something away from it. They learn something. So there will be a real character change every arc.
“I also want to do interstitial issues in between the big stuff,” Gillen continued. “With those I can focus on subplots that don't really fit the theme of the major arc. The point one issue would be a good example of that. That story would not support an arc and we don't want to stretch sub plots out and confuse you as to what the arc is really about. So in between the big stories if I have space I'll try to take an issue to look at some things I really want to explore.”
Gillen's first solo arc begins in “Uncanny X-Men” #535. It's called “Breaking Point” and spotlights the tumultuous romance of Colossus and Kitty Pryde. In 2001's “Uncanny X-Men” #390, it appeared that Colossus sacrificed himself to obtain a cure for the lethal mutant killing plague known as the Legacy Virus. In 2004's “Astonishing X-Men” #4, Kitty and Colossus were reunited when the team discovered that Colossus had been resurrected by an alien known as Ord. The reunion was sweet but it would not last. Just four years later in the “Astonishing X-Men” storyline “Unstoppable,” the X-Men would travel to Ord's home planet, Breakworld, where they discovered a plot to destroy the Earth by firing a giant bullet at it. Kitty becomes trapped in the bullet, but was able to use her phasing powers to turn the bullet intangible and protect Earth. She remained trapped in the bullet until just last year when Magneto used his powers to draw the bullet back to Earth and shatter it. Pryde was liberated , but her reunion with Colossus was bittersweet because she was trapped in an intangible state.
“Since they both went through periods where they grieved over the loss of each other, Kitty and Colossus's relationship has become incredibly intense. Even though they can't touch they're spending a lot of time together. So there's a poignancy and a desperation to it,” Gillen explained. “They're essentially the classic star-crossed lovers in that they can't really catch a break. If they said, 'Hey let's go away for the weekend together,' one of them would probably have been blown up. So that makes things intense. The only times they have been able to touch is when Kitty is in her solidity suit which makes things better, but it's still not like a normal relationship. The X-Men don't really have normal relationships though, do they?
“So with my first arc I wanted to do something with Colossus and Kitty and the solidity suit and what actually happened to her. I thought if we were going to do something about that we're going to have to reveal look at how it happened. It's the only thing which makes sense. She was in a bullet that was fired at the Earth by Breakworld... which means it's going to have to involve Breakworld. What precipitates 'Breaking Point' is that an enormous warship from Breakworld turns up. We haven't seen anything of Breakworld since the end of the story in 'Astonishing.' We saw that their despotic ruler Kruun was deposed and they were trying something else. But what happened then? This story answers that question,” Gillen continued. “Going back to what I was saying about the X-Men building a community, in this story there's the idea of, you acted like this so what kind of responsibility do you have to this culture you changed completely?
"What happened to Breakworld is almost like what happened to mutants themselves. As a culture, everything has changed for them. So this story is everything coming back to haunt the X-Men. It's a tale primarily about love and revenge.”
In the first issue of “Breaking Point,” the X-Men travel into space but the bulk of the four-part arc actually takes place on Earth. Since the story involves an encounter between Earth and an alien race, the cast of Gillen's “S.W.O.R.D.” series will make an appearance. “This is my least favorite thing about the arc. I feel awful about it,” Gillen said, laughing. “My thinking was okay, I want to do some stuff with Kitty and Peter, the solidity suit, and Breakworld. Of course that means the Bullet, and we need Magneto as well because he broke the bullet. So it looks like I need Breakworld. If I need Breakworld, I need S.W.O.R.D. If I need S.W.O.R.D. It looks like I'm writing them into my first arc. It's like, 'Writer brings back canceled book!' It's necessary, though. A story like this would merit at the very least a cameo from Agent Brand, the head of S.W.O.R.D. So Brand is in the arc, being her ever-charming self. Plus there's a cameo by Unit, the robot I introduced in my 'S.W.O.R.D.' series. I like that robot a lot. On the quiet – because Unit only ever does things on the quiet — I've got big plans for him.”
For “Breaking Point,” Gillen will collaborate with artist Terry Dodson, who shares artistic duties on “Uncanny X-Men” with Greg Land. “I've always loved Terry's stuff. Terry's style is well suited towards romance. It's full of character and acting, but also there's a sense of glamor and grace to it. That really works on this story because it's about these big primal emotions. The action is really physical. I like how he draws body language and all the small gestures. They really convey a lot of information,” Gillen said. “That's the thing about this arc. I wanted to write something for Terry to have fun with. He's been on X-Men for quite awhile, but he's often had to do tie-ins, alternating issues and things like that. So I wanted an entire arc of just Terry, written for Terry and all his strengths. It's a visual showcase for him. The first two pages of the first issue kind of show the extremes of it – first, this very romantic, cute scene with Kitty. You turn the page. This splendid, ludicrous piece of hyper-tech superhero glory. That's two sides of Terry, and it's just great to see on the page.”
Gillen's future plans for “Uncanny X-Men” involve tie-ins to both Marvel's upcoming summer event storyline “Fear Itself,” by his former co-writer Matt Fraction, and Gillen's other ongoing X-book “Generation Hope.” “I think it's going to be a really big year for the X-Men in a lot of ways. There's stuff we can't talk about yet, but it's all going to be big and character defining stuff that's been building up for years. You've seen the Cyclops teaser so you know the X-Men have a role to play in 'Fear Itself.' Fear is one of the most fundamental X-Men emotions. They protect a world that fears and hates them. That's part of their raison d'etre. So I think 'Fear Itself' very naturally ties into the X-Men,” the writer stated. “And since I'm writing both 'Uncanny' and “Generation Hope,' it's sort of like what Chris Claremont did when he wrote 'New Mutants' and 'Uncanny X-Men' at the same time. That means they're still very much their own books, but I can tie them together in a very natural way and I can have character arcs dovetail between books. Like, for instance, Kitty will become very involved with 'Generation Hope.' So there will be themes that crossover between the two books. I want to make them feel like this big whole and that's what a shared universe is all about. The fact that I'm writing both books allows me to do really soft and subtle stuff which you couldn't do with multiple writers. It's a really unique challenge.”
Gillen knows there are many creative challenges involved with writing “Uncanny X-Men,” but the writer is ready and determined to meet them. To use a baseball a metaphor, he's excited for his turn at bat and plans on swinging for the fences. “I feel like I've been given this enormous opportunity and I want use it to write the definitive X-Men run of the 21st century," the writer laughed. "I'm not aiming low. I want to be really, really good. I didn't get into this job to be rubbish. The X-Men are such incredible characters . I think we could do really interesting things with them and I can't wait to do those things.”

Matt Fraction está oficialmente for a de Uncanny X-Men a partir do mês de abril. Kieron Gillen, que estava co-escrevendo a revista com Fraction, foi autor de SWORD e está roteirizando Generation Hope, assume em definitivo.

Gillen afirmou que será um tremendo desafio e uma grande responsabilidade, mas ele se considera preparado. A transição foi feita da mesma forma que anteriormente, em 2008, aconteceu com Brubaker e Fraction. Agora, Gillen segue sozinho com o final do arco Quarantine.

A primeira história solo de Gillen, Uncanny #534.1, será desenhada por Carlos Pacheco, e terá esse .1 ao lado do número para indicar um novo começo para aqueles que queiram começar a acompanhar a partir de agora. De acordo com o autor, essa edição será fechada em si, mas deixa os principais pontos para o que ele pretende desenvolver depois. O tema principal é divulgar para o resto do mundo que Utopia está abrigando Magneto, com a participação da relações públicas Kate Kildare, mostrada na edição #538. A presença de Magnus ao lado dos X-Men foi divulgada pela mídia que esteve presente durante a participação do ex-vilão em uma equipe que ajudava na reconstrução de São Francisco, mostrado em Legacy. O público, em geral, reprova a presença de Magneto, já que o considera culpado pelo que aconteceu em Nova Iorque durante o arco Planeta X, de Grant Morrison, desconhecendo o fato de que aquele não era realmente o Mestre do Magnetismo.

Também em abril saem outras duas edições de Gillen em Uncanny. O autor disse preferir trabalhar em arcos menores, fechando histórias, mas também deixando pontas para o futuro, com edições individuais construindo uma ponte entre novos plots.

O arco que se inicia em abril, com desenhos de Terry Dodson, será mais focado em Kitty e Colossus e se chamará Breaking Point. Os dois ficaram muito tempo separados: primeiro com o sacrifício de Colossus e, logo depois da volta de Peter, o desaparecimento de Kitty. Depois que Magneto a trouxe de volta, a mutante está em sua forma intangível e não pode tocar seu amado, a não ser nos momentos em que está com um traje que a permite ficar sólida. Na história, Gillen promete também falar sobre o que aconteceu após os eventos finais narrados na passagem de Whedon em Astonishing X-Men. Os X-Men, então, viajarão para fora da Terra, embora a maior parte da ação desse arco, em quatro partes, acontecerá aqui em nosso planeta. Gillen também poderá trazer personagens mostrados em SWORD de volta para suas histórias.

Para além desse primeiro arco, os planos de Gillen envolvem tie-ins com Fear Itself, o próximo grande evento da Marvel, que será escrito por Fraction, e também interações com Generation Hope, outro título que escreve. Ele adiantou que Kitty terá papel importante na revista de Esperança.

Ele finalizou dizendo que o ano de 2011 reserva muitas surpresas para o universo mutante.

A Marvel está realizando uma iniciativa muito bacana para anunciar as novidades de MMXI. Todo dia, às 5 da tarde no horário de Brasília, pelo site da editora, os leitores podem acompanhar um bate-papo com os escritores envolvidos no evento.

Ontem, o editor Nick Lowe teve a presença de Dan Abnett e Andy Lanning, anunciados como escritores de Novos Mutantes a partir de maio.

Lowe disse que a dupla foi a primeira opção desde que Zeb Wells anunciou que deixaria o título. Para quem não sabe, conhecidos pela sigla DnA, Dan e Andy são os responsáveis pela parte cósmica da editora, como Nova e Guerra dos Reis.

Os dois autores revelaram o nome de seu primeiro arco à frente do título: "Unfinished Business". Como mostrado no teaser de divulgação, Blink e X-Man aparecerão nas histórias. A primeira é a da realidade 616, que participou de Necrosha e, nos últimos dias, ganhou uma pequena história na coletânea X-Men: To Serve and Protect. Nate Grey, definido por Abnett como uma Realeza-X, estava desaparecido desde o final da mini dos X-Men Sombrios. O que ele ficou fazendo nesse ínterim será mostrado durante o primeiro arco.

A dupla DnA disse que o elenco inicial da série será o mesmo do final da passagem de Wells, mas que, ao final do primeiro arco, haverá mudanças. Contudo, eles não revelaram quem deixa ou entra na equipe. Nick Lowe apenas confirmou que não há planos para Lupina e que ela continua bem no X-Factor, sob a batuta de Peter David.

O primeiro arco trará o desenvolvimento de alguns relacionamentos, como o de Sam e Dani, que foi iniciado por Wells, mas também alguns que só foram sugeridos, mas nunca mostrados. Por isso, podemos aguardar muitos beijos, como ressaltou Nick Lowe. Outra dinâmica que os escritores pretendem resgatar é a amizade entre Doug Ramsey e Kitty Pride.

Para aqueles que aguardam um retorno de Destrutor, Polaris e Rachel,personagens usados por Abnett e Lanning durante as sagas cósmicas, Lowe disse que eles voltam após MMXI, mas não definiu em que condições e em qual revista, só deixando claro que isso acontecerá no ano que vem.

O desenhista regular será Leandro Fernandez, com um ou outro artista fazendo as edições de ligação entre cada arco.

New Mutants #25 sai em maio, após o fim de “Age of X”.

A divisão ainda não foi confirmada, mas, se acontecer, será a partir de MMXI.

Dando continuidade a MMXILiveblog, iniciativa que a Marvel vem promovendo essa semana para divulgar as novidades do universo mutante para 2011, Rick Remender, o escritor de Uncanny X-Force, foi entrevistado.

Remender confirmou o que a imagem do teaser lançado na semana passada já havia indicado: a X-Force viajará para a Era do Apocalipse. O escritor disse que o grupo precisa buscar algo daquela realidade, mas não revelou mais para não contar surpresas da aventura.

Arcanjo não está propositalmente no teaser, segundo Remender. Rumores especulam se isso não está relacionado a uma possível divisão das equipes, que já havia sido sugerida quando foi anunciada a mini X-Men: Prelude. O roteirista não disse também se algum outro personagem entrará para o elenco fixo do grupo.

Será a primeira vez que personagens do Universo 616 vão à Era do Apocalipse, embora o contrário já aconteceu frequentemente, com as vindas, por exemplo, de X-Man e Fera Negro à realidade normal. Fera Negro terá uma participação importante nesse arco, assim como personagens como Noturno e Jean Grey daquele universo, já que suas contrapartes estão mortas.

A história se passará dez anos depois da última aparição da Era do Apocalipse, na mini que saiu por aqui em X-Men Anual 1, publicada originalmente nos Estados Unidos em 2005. Caso os leitores não conheçam aquela realidade, não terão problemas para compreender esse arco. Remender também adicionou que a versão que conhecemos de AoA não existe mais. Portanto, será uma versão já diferente em MMXI.

Sobre o romance de Arcanjo e Psylocke, haverá mais desenvolvimentos no futuro. Os dois estão bem, embora a relação seja de forte dependência. Fantomex aparece como um elemento para um possível triângulo amoroso.

Perguntado sobre a presença de Capitão Bretanha na edição #6, Remender disse que faz parte da tentativa de explorar como Psylocke a vê em relação a seus irmãos: um grande herói de seu país e um louco superpoderoso.

Entre os desenhistas das próximas edições, haverá um grande rodízio por arco. Esas Ribic termina o arco atual, seguido por Billy Tan. Mark Brooks faz as edições ligadas à Era do Apocalipse até que Jerome Opeña retorne. Após as 17 primeiras edições, que formam uma grande storyline em cinco arcos, Greg Tocchini assume os desenhos.

Uncanny X-Force #11, desenhada por Mark Brooks, é a primeira do arco envolvendo a Era do Apocalipse e será lançada em junho.
