Na semana do lançamento do one-shot inicial de Second Coming, os autores Craig Kyle e Chris Yost são os convidados do X-Position. Além de anunciarem para julho a primeira edição da mini X-Force: Sex & Violence, eles responderam dúvidas dos fãs.

Antes do grande evento propriamente dito, a X-Force acabou de enfrentar uma dura batalha contra Selene. Yost contou que Vanisher não teleportou o grupo diretamente para o castelo de Selene, mas sim para fora dele, pois o que queria era poder fugir o mais rápido possível, sem pôr em risco sua vida. A aventura envolvendo Selene remete à série dos Novos X-Men, quando ela seduziu o Decompositor. Contudo, o que poderia ser uma edição, acabou se tornando um grande cross – com direito a um confronto final entre Decompositor e Elixir.

A dupla de autores é a maior responsável pelo desenvolvimento do caminho até Second Coming, já que muito do que será feito na saga tem relação com as sementes plantadas na série da X-Force, como os vilões – Bastion, Stryker, Cameron Hodge. No planejamento deles, lidar com Selene é algo que poderia ficar restrito ao seu título, mas a ameaça de Bastion era algo que demandaria um esforço de todo o X-office.

Eles deixaram no ar uma possível presença de Nate Grey ou Kitty Pride no evento – um dos dois aparecerá. Elixir também pode ter certo destaque, já que as informações que ele tem de Esperança são bastante úteis. Mas não é garantido que ele sobreviva à Necrosha.

Guerra Messiânica, a segunda parte da trilogia, tem sim certo impacto em Second Coming. Mesmo que Apocalypse não vá aparecer, algo importante mostrado anteriormente será retomado: os dois lados de Esperança – o de salvadora e o de destruidora. Em Guerra Messiânica, a X-Force pôde ver como está vivendo a messias – e isso faz com que eles questionem se tê-la deixado ir para o futuro com Cable foi a melhor opção.

Kyle & Yost também garantiram que a Feiticeira Escarlate não aparecerá, mesmo ela tendo relação com a extinção do gene X. Second Coming será centrado na volta de Esperança e na tarefa dos X-Men em mantê-la viva.

Yost também escreverá um dos tie-ins da saga: Hellbound. Nele, teremos Illyana e uma missão de resgate no Limbo. O autor também brincou que o time escolhido para a missão – Míssil, Fada, Gambit, Estrela Polar e dois Novos X-Men – tem personagens que podem ser mortos. Brincadeiras à parte, as razões serão explicadas no decorrer da primeira edição e nem todo o time foi revelado ainda. O tie-in será uma decorrência de algo que acontecerá em Second Coming, assim como o one-shot com o X-Club.

No one-shot que sera lançado essa semana, teremos as consequências sobre a revelação da existência da X-Force. Muitos X-Men ainda veem o grupo como heróis e não admitirão as razões e os meios que movem a X-Force – é como se tivessem sido traídos por Ciclope. Scott tem tentando manter o sonho de Xavier – isolando os X-Men da X-Force –, ao mesmo tempo em que quer garantir a existência da raça mutante – e para isso utiliza seu esquadrão obscuro.

Por ultimo, eles disseram que em Second Coming não teremos o destino de Lupina e de seu bebê, mas isso será mostrado em outro lugar. Mas o final de Necrosha terá outras consequências importantes para o grupo.

Infelizmente, os dois escritores deixam o título ao final de Second Coming, com mudanças drásticas no rumo da revista. As duas páginas finais da passagem deles por X-Force foram planejadas há anos e podemos esperar grandes emoções.

Entrevista com Nick Lowe sobre a primeira parte de Second Coming:

Spoiler:

Ever since House of M, the mutant race has been fighting a losing battle for survival. There are less than 200 mutants left in the world. No new mutants are being born. The lone mutant birth since M-Day is trapped in the far future with a murderer on her tail. It's enough to make even the toughest X-Man want to give up and call it quits. Some already have.

But there is cause for hope, and Hope is indeed her name. Cable and Hope have returned to the present. The X-Men are ready to welcome them back into the fold, but first they have to contend with futuristic Sentinel hybrid Bastion and his numerous minions. In the crossover Second Coming, the X-Men go to war against Bastion in a battle that could decide the future of the mutant race.

The first chapter of this crossover debuted this week in the form of X-Men: Second Coming #1. The story will continue in the pages of Uncanny X-Men,New Mutants, X-Men Legacy, and X-Force for the next three months. We sat down with editor Nick Lowe to go over the events of this first issue and to find out what the X-writers have in store over the coming months. Not only did Lowe answer or questions, he provided a healthy dose of new art from upcoming X-books.

This is only the first of several chats we'll be having with Lowe. Each month we'll revisit Second Coming and discuss things still to come. If you have questions for Lowe, feel free to send them in and we'll pick our favorites to cover next time. The easiest method is to click the author name at the top of this article and submit them via e-mail. You can also post your questions in the comments section below or tweet them to either@RichIGN or @jschedeen.

IGN Comics: How far back in the planning stages for all these X-Men crossovers did you guys start thinking about Second Coming? Was this always the intended endgame for Messiah Complex?

Nick Lowe: It was inevitable once we put in the plan for House of M to, at some point, get here. Messiah Complex came about because of House of M, and as soon as we ended Messiah Complex with Cable going into the future with Hope, we had started to plan how she was going to come back. We knew what kind of person we wanted Hope to be. It was really just a matter of fleshing out the details. One of those details that got fleshed out maybe a year-and-a-half ago was Bastion's role. That came into fruition through Craig Kyle and Chris Yost's plans for X-Force and it seemed like a really good match for this story. The idea of this Sentinel from the future trying to exterminate all mutants and Hope being a main target. It just seemed to make sense to us.

IGN Comics: So in the beginning they intended Bastion just to be the big villain of X-Force, and then he grew into something more from there?

Lowe: Absolutely. One thing led to another. [laughs] Bastion was going to be the arch-villain at the end of their series, but it ended up just having more legs than that. They built him up in such a cool way, and having his endgame have to do with Hope just seemed perfect to us, and to Craig and Chris as well. So it just ballooned into what Second Coming is now.

IGN Comics: Before Messiah Complex, you guys hadn't done any major X-Men crossovers for a while. But now with that storyline and Messiah War and Utopia and all these crossovers that have come since, has it become easier for you to coordinate these different books and manage the crossovers?

Lowe: I wish I could say yes. I wish to God I could say yes. But every time it's so hard. I feel like we're doing better from an organizational standpoint. I feel like we're doing much better this time around. We're much further ahead than we were on Messiah Complex. We've gotten better at it, but it doesn't get any easier. And even though we have had Messiah War and Utopia and things like that, this is the biggest one since Messiah Complex. This has the four books involved, as well as the tie-ins we're doing like Hellbound and Blind Science and the X-Factor issues. It's a much bigger beast to wrestle with than a two-series crossover. Although those have their own challenges. It hasn't gotten any easier, but we've gotten a little better at it, I'd like to think.

IGN Comics: This first issues deals with the entire X-Men roster in one form or another. Is that going to be the case for the whole crossover, or are we going to the team split into smaller groups as the story moves into the individual books?

Lowe: The crossover deals with the X-Men as a whole. We do see a little bit of splitting into groups at various points, but that really has to do with Cyclops' strategy. He's the main character in Second Coming. Him, Cable, Hope, and Bastion. If we had to boil it down to just one four-issue series, they would be our main characters. A lot of the X-Men have huge, important roles, of course, and big things happen to them, but as far as the main players it comes down to those four.

As far as the different sub-groups, Cyclops sends each of these smaller groups on missions to do different things he needs done. We're going to see what role the New Mutants play. There's the role X-Force plays at one point. In the first issue you see the team that we've been internally calling the Alpha Team. That's Wolverine, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, X-23, Angel, and Illyana. That's the group Cyclops pulls together as his primary field team for the purpose of tracking Cable and Hope. So you have Wolverine and X-23 as your trackers. You've got a big strength force in Colossus. Psylocke is there not only because of her fighting skills but for the advantage of having a psychic on call. Angel provides air support and is someone who can move pretty darn quick. And then you have Magik as transportation for the whole team as well as her battle skills. So it's people Cyclops trusts and who can get around quickly and find Cable and Hope.

IGN Comics: X-Force #25 came out this week as well, and we saw the team fracture and splinter apart at the end with many of them leaving.

Lowe: Absolutely.

IGN Comics: At this point, is X-Force still functional? Are there enough of them left on active duty for there to be an X-Force?

Lowe: Well, as of right now, as you mentioned, there isn't an X-Force in any of this. There's still that group of people who know certain things, and that's what we see in the first issue. X-23, Wolverine, and Archangel have a certain set of knowledge that the rest of the X-Men don't have because they've been kept secret. They know about Bastion. They know about his capos. As far as X-Force existing, they don't, but that's not to say by the end of this crossover there won't be an X-Force. And that's my little tease for the next question.

IGN Comics: Before I ask that, I wanted to ask why Wolverine and X-23 are so intent on keeping Bastion's existence a secret. This is a villain the X-Men have confronted before. They know who he is and what he's capable of. Why don't Cyclops and Wolverine want everyone on the same page at this point?

Lowe: I think at this point it's because the fact that X-Force existed and did what they did is still a secret. There are very few people who know about X-Force. Beast was one of the few who knew, and he's no longer with the team. But I think it's because the existence of X-Force and their modus operandi and their marching orders put them at odds with the X-Men's philosophy. For a long time the X-Men avoided killing, and it's something X-Force definitely did not avoid. That's the main reason they want to keep it a secret, because it opens a whole can of worms that they're not looking forward to dealing with.

IGN Comics: And I'll respond to your tease now. What can you say about the future of X-Force after Second Coming? Is there always going to be a need for that sort of team within the X-Men now?

Lowe: It's going to be interesting to see. As far as just the crossover goes, there's definitely going to be a future for X-Force. There's going to be a need for a team that can operate on its own and make tough decisions that involve survival of the species. As for what form X-Force is going to take, we've been teasing at that a little. There's an image we released that says "One will sacrifice". That's a tease that there are changes coming to the X-Force lineup in the crossover. As for the future of the book, that's a little more unclear. That's something we'll reveal when we make more announcements. As of July, there may not be an X-Force anymore.

IGN Comics: Moving over to Cyclops for a minute, we're starting to see him come part at the seams in this issue. T this point would you say his faith in Hope is as much a coping mechanism for what's happening as it is an actual belief that she's come to save them?

Lowe: I would say that's certainly part of it. I think that anyone who puts their faith in someone or something has it tested. It can definitely be seen as a coping mechanism. That's something we talk about in the issue itself. Cyclops looks at what happened in House of M and "No more mutants" and basically the damning the species. I remember at one point we were having a conference call with all of our X-Men writers, and I can't remember if it was Mike Carey or Matt Fraction, but it might have been Matt who said, "When a species gets below 300, they have no future". The numbers there aren't enough to bring a species back to fruition.

Mutants were damned, and after a long time of no new mutant births, Hope popped up on Cerebra and set the events of Messiah Complex in motion. Cyclops sees this and knows this has to mean something. It can mean one of two things – something good or something bad. But what's the point of even looking at the bad if species survival is what you're looking for? You might as well hope for the good or just give up. That's a big part of how Cyclops sees Hope and all these events. And that could be a coping mechanism, or it could just be faith. Faith is not something you can base on solid facts. He's definitely going out on a limb here.

IGN Comics: As the war begins to get bloody and people find out about X-Force, are we going to start to see a divide among the team between those who support Cyclops and those who have lost faith in him?

Cyclops: There are certainly seeds being planted. Not everyone's going to be happy. But at the end of the day, one of the things we've been trying to drive home with Cyclops in the past couple years – and especially in this crossover – is that they're at war and the stakes are as high or higher than they've ever been. You'll start to see this as the story gets bloody. The X-Men have their backs against the wall worse than it's ever been for them. To some extent, they're going to see things in Cyclops they don't agree with. We saw Beast confront that already. But at the same time, they're in the middle of a war. Survival is more important right now than disagreement. You're going to see a little of that disagreement in the crossover, but more in the fallout afterward and what that can mean to the X-Men.

IGN Comics: You guys put out that Second Coming preview issue a couple weeks ago. I'm wondering where exactly Mike Carey's story fits into the timeline. I assume it's taking place after the events of Second Coming #1?

Lowe: I will tell you exactly where that takes place. It takes place after the books we publish in April. So it takes place right about the same time that Uncanny #524 (Second Coming Ch. 6). In a larger sense, we think of each month as an act. Second Coming has a three-act structure. X-Force #26 is the end of act one. X-Force #27 is the end of act two. X-Men: Second Coming #2 is the end of act three.

IGN Comics: Since the preview issue takes place after Second Coming begins, I assume the dead body we see in the laboratory is a character that will die later on in the crossover?

Lowe: Yes. That's something you're going to be hearing more from us about either at the end of this week or the beginning of next. We're going to be putting out another teaser image about a major X-Men death coming. That's going to be in X-Force #26. That's a really big deal for the X-Men, and it's not the only death you're going to see in this event. But it's probably the biggest, or at least damn close to it. One thing we wanted to make really clear to people is that this isn't a normal X-Men mission. People are going to get hurt. People are going to die. It's not just one person at the end of the day. The stakes are literally higher than they've ever been for the X-Men, and they're in worse shape than they've ever been in the story.

IGN Comics: That short story spotlighted a few characters in particular, like Wolverine, Rogue, Angel, and a few others. Is that any sort of indication as to which team members will have the heaviest roles in the story?

Lowe: We definitely wanted to pick some of the main players, but even more importantly than that, there are certain points of view that we wanted to get across and highlight. That's where these characters came in. We wanted to show a lot of different sides of what's going on. There are a lot of different aspects to the question "Where were you?" and how to answer that. That was a really fun story to work on and a really powerful story. It was just this idea of "Where were you when Hope came back?", almost like "Where were you when JFK was killed?" or in our generation, something like September 11th. Where were you when these big things happened? That was something we thought anyone could relate to. Seeing these characters from the angle of this giant happening was really powerful to us. And Mike knocked that script out of the park. It was great to get Stuart Immonen, who's just such a fantastic, in-demand artist, and we were glad we could make that work. It's really terrific stuff.

IGN Comics: We know from reading that story that Magneto is eventually going to wake from his coma. In talking to Matt Fraction before, he said that going into Second Coming, Cyclops, Emma, Magneto, and Namor were really the four pillars of the X-Men. Are we going to see Magneto and Namor take on a more central role in the story as it moves along?

Lowe: Absolutely, Especially Magneto. With him around in events like these, we couldn't help ourselves. We needed him around. You'll definitely see him wake from his coma at some point. And you're going to see him take on a huge role. One of the interesting things about working on a story, especially a multi-tiered, 14-part story like this, is that when we have to solicit these things months in advance, it's a difficult thing to keep a ton of surprises hidden. If you look in the solicits you can see more about Magneto's role. He's on the cover to X-Men Legacy #237. So you know he'll be in a prime section by that point. He plays a very important role in the story, and really, he's just such a fun character to have around the X-Men right now. His participation in the Necrosha storyline for X-Men Legacy was fantastic. What Matt has been having him do in Uncanny X-men is amazing. He's such a good wild card – someone who has his own thoughts and opinions and strategies. Getting to see him interact with the rest of the X-Men in such a unique way has been one of the highlights of working on these books.

IGN Comics: I'm also curious about Kitty. I have to assume if you guys went through the trouble of bringing her back before Second Coming started that she's not just going to sit out the whole storyline.

Lowe: Her problem is a little more complicated even than Magneto's at this point because of the way Matt showed her in Uncanny #522. She can't speak, she can't touch anything. She's stuck in her phase state right now. The question is whether she can work that out in time to be of assistance in Second Coming. It's going to be an interesting thing to see how that works. At least in the first act you're not going to see a lot of her.

IGN Comics: To end off, can you just give readers an idea of what to expect as the crossover moves into act one?

Lowe: Sure. This week was X-Men: Second Coming #1. Next week we kick off in the monthly books with Uncanny X-men. You're going to see more of the Alpha Team. You're going to see the deployment of the New Mutants. You're going to see just how formidable Bastion's forces are. We have the best trackers the X-Men have to offer. Bastion beats them to Hope and Cable. So that's not a sign for how things are going with the X-Men.

The best thing I can say is that you're going to see the X-Men pushed up against a wall more intensely than ever before. If I can compare this to another kind of comic as far as intensity, one of my favorite arcs of a Spider-Man comic is the first JMS/John Romita Jr. story where Spider-Man is dealing with Morlun and the long fight between the two where Spidey just gets the utter crap beaten out of him. That happens to the X-men. They get beaten down. The question is whether they're able to get back up again. There will be shock after shock and twist after twist, and I think people are going to be stunned when they see what happens in this story. And I can't wait to check in with you guys after each act and seeing what questions you have and what the fans have.

OH! And one more thing. In one of our more bone-headed editorial mistakes, we missed the credits for the BASTION KILL INDEX in the end of #1. The artists are amazing and I'd like to credit them here:

BASTION- Mike Del Mundo
CYCLOPS- Zachary Baldus
CABLE AND HOPE- Yanick Paquette, Michel Lacombe and Nathan Fairbairn
X-MEN- Nicholas Bradshaw and Nathan Fairbairn
X-FORCE- Adrian Alphona and Christina Strain
THE HUMAN COUNCIL- Leonard Kirk and Brian Reber

Second Coming é uma consequência inevitável de Dinastia M, como bem lembrou o editor Nick Lowe, em entrevista ao IGN. Complexo de Messias só pôde existir por causa de Dinastia M e, no final desse arco, Cable foi para o futuro com Esperança. Second Coming é fruto do retorno da messias, juntamente com os planos que Kyle &Yost trilharam em X-Force. Um fato casou com o outro. No começo, Bastion seria apenas o grande vilão de X-Force. No decorrer dos fatos, ele acabou se tornando o antagonista maior da volta de Esperança.

Complexo de Messias foi o primeiro cross mutante em anos. Depois dele, alguns outros foram lançados, como Guerra Messiânica e Utopia. Lowe não acredita que os cross sejam mais fáceis de coordenar do que cada título sendo desenvolvido individualmente. Contudo, agora em Second Coming, os editores estão bem mais preparados para lidar com um cross do que na época de Complexo de Messias, mesmo com tantos títulos envolvidos e todos os tie-ins.

Durante Second Coming, os X-Men serão mostrados como um todo, mas, eventualmente, seguindo a estratégia de Ciclope, eles serão divididos em pequenos grupos. Ele é o personagem principal da saga, juntamente com Cable, Esperança e Bastion. Cada sub-grupo será responsável por uma missão específica, como os Novos Mutantes e a X-Force. Na primeira edição, o Esquadrão Alfa tem destaque – Wolverine, Colossus, Noturno, Psylocke, X-23, Anjo e Illyana. Esse é o grupo escolhido para encontrar Cable e Esperança. Psylocke está no time não só pelas habilidades de combagte, mas pelo chamado psíquico. Anjo, pelo suporte aére oe velocidade. Illyana, pelo teleporte. São todos pessoas em quem Ciclope confia e que podem encontrar mais rapidamente a messias e seu protetor.

A saga mostrará uma nova X-Force, já alterada com os eventos de Necrosha. De início, na verdade, não há mais um grupo propriamente dito. X-23, Wolverine e Arcanjo estão no Esquadrão Alfa e mantêm segredos dos demais. Eles sabem que Bastion está por trás disso e conhecem seus capangas. Isso não quer dizer, porém, que a X-Force acabou. No desenrolar da trama, o futuro do grupo será mostrado. Ele será necessário ainda, porque fortes decisões precisarão ser tomadas para garantir a sobrevivência da espécie. Lowe garantiu que o teaser com a inscrição “Um vai se sacrificar” fará todo sentido e definirá os rumos do elenco de X-Force – e da própria série. Por isso, precisaremos esperar para ver se, em julho, ainda haverá o anúncio de mais uma edição do títulob.

Lowe também falou que Ciclope não deixou todos a par da atual situação em relaçao a Bastion, pois preferiu manter a X-Force em segredo. A existência do grupo e seu modus operandi é contrária à filosofia dos X-Men. Scott sentiu isso na pele, quando Fera deixou os X-Men ao descobrir o segredo.

O editor também acredita que, no momento, a crença de Ciclope não é mais tanto no verdadeiro caráter messiânico de Esperança, mas sim é um mecanismo de defesa, psicológico, para o que está por vir. O nascimento da menina pode significar duas coisas: ou algo bom, ou algo ruim. Ciclope não desistirá e seguirá acreditando que significou algo bom. A fé dele será testado ao máximo em Second Coming.

Durante o evento, teremos também as primeiras divisões nos X-Men, entre os que apoiam Ciclope e os que perderam a fé nele. Só que todos perceberão que esse é o maior desafio que já enfrentaram – o mais sanguinolento. Muitos podem não concordar com Ciclope, mas estão no meio da guerra e a sobrevivência é mais importante que o desacordo. Por isso, essa divisão será mais forte ao final da saga.

Lowe confirmou que o corpo que vimos no preview (Second Coming Prepare) é de alguém que morreu durante a saga. Mais novidades sobre essa morte estão em um novo teaser que será lançado nos próximos dias. A morte acontece em X-Force #26. Não será a única de Second Coming, mas a mais importante.

Namor e especialmente Magneto terão papéis importantes também em Second Coming. Magnus acordará de seu coma (após os últimos eventos de Nation X) e isso era algo que já podia ser previsto, pois ele está na capa de Legacy #237.

O problema de Kitty é mais complicado, como podemos ver pelo destino dela em Uncanny #522. Ela não pode falar, nem tocar em nada. Está presa em sua forma intangível. A questão é se ela poderá ficar boa a tempo de ajudar os X-Men. Ao menos no primeiro mês, não teremos muito sobre ela.

Para o próximo mês, podemos esperar mais do Esquadrão Alfa, dos Novos Mutantes, das forças de Bastion derrotando os X-Men. Eles serão vencidos e a pergunta principal é quando poderão dar o troco.

This July, the fairer side of Marvel mutantdom gets a spotlight in X-WOMEN, a one-shot written by the legendary Chris Claremont and featuring work by renowned Italian artist Milo Manara.

"You'll be seeing a really fun story; 46 pages by Milo Manara doing his first work for an American audience and certainly the first he's done using classic American super hero characters," teases Claremont. "It's a presentation of this clutch of x-characters the likes of which have never been seen before. And it's brilliant art by one of the finest artists in the European market, if not the world."

X-WOMEN follows the sextet of Rogue, Storm, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Summers, Psylocke and Emma Frost vacationing off on an island in the Mediterranean. Considering the cast, the tale takes place outside of regular continuity, but doesn't stray too far off the beaten path. Claremont first penned the story five years ago; however, as the writer himself says, when it comes to working with an artist as globally popular as Manara, there tends to be a serious waiting list.

"The absolute giggle is how utterly attractive he makes the characters, and yet does so in a way that is courteous to American sensibilities," the writer says. "He just juggles the visual storytelling brilliantly. The characters end up being lovely and funny and all together eloquent. It wasn't intended as being Dark Phoenix all over again. It's a fun romp and I think in every respect it succeeds in that ambition and throws in so much more besides. But that's the advantage of working with a brilliant artist
X-WOMEN preview art by Milo Manara
like Manara. He takes what you ask for and gives it back to you with that much more that makes you think, 'Wow. I must be really good to get this.' No, he's really good. I just get to bask in the glory."

Although the title marks Manara's first graphite-laden stab at the ladies of the Marvel U, it's well-worn territory for Claremont. After all, the penman created every character starring in the title, except for Storm, who he nonetheless wrote and developed for nearly two decades. However, despite his extensive familiarity with the X-Women, the writer says that assuming one knows everything about a character almost contradicts the purpose of comic book storytelling.

"The single element of a good character that one has done a proper job of creating is that it's an ongoing paradox," he explains. "Yes, you know 'everything this is to know about them,' and yet each circumstance, each story, in its own way provides an opportunity to discover new and interesting aspects of the character and their interaction with other people and the situation itself that helps the writer enlighten them further for himself and the audience. It's never a zero sum equation. It's an infinitely open-ended journey that with the right character and the right situation and the right story turns out to be a whole lot of fun."

As much fun as he admits to have had writing the story, Claremont insists the real treat of the book lies in his creative partner's art. Well known in the European market for his portrayal of breathtaking women, Manara brings the same level of detail and exoticism to every page.

"The emotions, the body language, the facial language, the way the characters relate to each other and to situations is-pretentious as it might sound-a revelation and a total delight," Claremont touts. "It's like, 'Wow. I never thought of them as looking this good.' It's just a whole heck of a
X-WOMEN preview art by Milo Manara
lot of fun. And in more than one occasion in the story it is an opportunity to poke fun at my own clichés. Actually, my favorite scene in it is a page where we have Betsy feeding livestock and Rogue taking care of the kids. And it's brilliant. Absolutely brilliant."

As for what else the story contains, the writer only offered a few hints and teases. But those fleeting glimpses showcase an adventure including seafaring scallywags, ancient aircrafts and classic Claremont moments:

"There are pirates. There are dastardly villains. There's a plot to destabilize the world. There is Kitty phasing through a yacht parked in the harbor and discovering that there are things that happen on yachts that young ladies shouldn't look at. There are severed heads galore. Destruction. Mayhem. Storm being inflicted with the usual annoying Claremont cliché of 'Oh look, I'm the prisoner of a pirate. Oh, and he's married. And I'm getting shot at from both sides.' It's a classic scene where everyone else gets hammered to their knees and confronted by villainy and the more they hammer the taller Storm stands. If I can't poke fun at myself, what's the point? And thrill and excitement and hopefully a happy ending. And lots of ancient airplanes. Because, what the heck, it's my story and I like ancient airplanes."


Em julho, sera lançado nos EUA o especial feito por Chris Claremont e Milo Manara, chamado X-Women. Serão 46 páginas com um dos mais famosos desenhistas europeus, explorando Vampira, Tempestade, Kitty Pride, Rachel, Psylocke e Emma Frost em uma viagem a uma ilha do Mediterrâneo. A história não fará parte da continuidade regular e foi pensada por Claremont há cinco anos.

O estilo inconfundível de Manara tem muito a acrescentar à edição. Claremont elogiou a emoção e as linguagens corporal e facial que ganham força nos traços do italiano.

O autor também falou sobre os vilões da história: serão piratas. O roteiro trará bastante destruição e caos, além de momentos já clichês em roteiros de Claremont.

Vice-presidente Alex Alonso fala sobre Second Coming e outras coisas em conferência.

Anúncios relacionados aos mutantes:

- Val D'Orazio, por excesso de trabalho, acabou não escrevendo uma mini sobre Manto e Adaga que deveria ter feito - e que as ideias de Val não se encaixa com os planos da Marvel para ambos. Mas Alonso garantiu que os dois personagens aparecerão em breve;

- Em Second Coming, Esperança compreenderá, pela primeira vez totalmente, quem ela é e quais são seus poderes;

- Alonso não quis revelar se a Feiticeira Escarlate e o Mercúrio estarão envolvidos com Second Coming, mas, na saga ou em outro evento, eles aparecerão;

- Ele ressaltou que o X-Factor terá papel importante em Second Coming, já que todos os mutantes serão afetados. Os de São Francisco, contudo, serão mais;

- Os X-Men continuarão em São Francisco, após o evento;

- Ele falou que quando Cable & Deadpool foi cancelado, o título vendia 20 mil edições, mas Alonso quase foi crucificado por isso. Depois, com títulos-solo de cada um dos personagens, a vendagem conjunta subiu para 50 mil cópias. Hoje, Deadpool aparece em 7 títulos. E o personagem continuará a evoluir e a ganhar destaque.

X-Position com Zeb Wells:

Spoiler:

Trae Middlebrooks starts us off today with some very character-centric questions. Can you help Trae out by giving us some idea of what makes the New Mutants tick?
1) Magma's motivation for remaining with the New Mutants is a mystery to me. She's never been much of a team player, and even though these are her oldest friends, she doesn't seem very close to anyone (except maybe Sunspot). It seems that it's not so much that she buys into Xavier's dream, but rather, she has no place else to go.


You're on to something there, I think. There really aren't a lot of places for mutants in the world the X-Men live in. You've got to "get in where you fit in" (a phrase I made up, so don't use it). When you've got nowhere to go, sticking around and watching your oldest friends' backs seems natural to me.


2) Your take on Doug's power is unexpected and truly inspired. He has become quite formidable, and I like it. How did you come up with the idea to take him in that direction?

I think it came from the idea that we're all bombarded with meaning in our modern lives. Almost everything we see has some sort of human thought behind it - it ismade with intention. I thought if Doug's power worked by discerning the intention or meaning behind the symbols of language, an advanced version of his power might allow him to "translate" these less obvious symbols around us.
I thought this could give him a cool, other-worldly point of view; because once his power is unleashed, he would start seeing the meaning in everything, not just things that are man-made. The trees of a forest have meaning and some sort of intention behind them, but whatever that may be is alien to the human mind. Pondering what nature means is so captivating because we'll never fully grasp it. A fence around a car park tells us what it means (keep out!), while a tree looks at us and asks us what it means. Doug knows the answer.

3) Issue #10 was my favorite so far in the series. I love the concept that Cyclops is breeding the next leaders of the X-Men. I did not see that coming, but it makes a lot of sense. How much will this concept factor into the rest of the series, and will Cyclops treat this group differently from the other X-Men because of it?

Cyclops has been using them as soldiers in an army for a while, but after "Second Coming" he'll be giving them more autonomy. He trusts them and will give them the freedom to make their own way, so that whichever one of them is most qualified to lead will become obvious.


4) Sunspot is one of my favorite characters, but I can't help feeling like Roberto is being short-changed in the character development department. Out of all the other characters, he still feels like a one-dimensional hothead/male chauvinist. Will we get to see more sides of his personality in the future and will he be a more integral part of your upcoming stories?

I think if Roberto is getting shortchanged it's because I feel like I have a handle on him, and I'm trying to explore characters that might be less defined for me. Roberto is so much fun to write, I almost feel guilty if I focus on him too much. I will do better in the future.


Dabid Kuhrt wants to know more about the fashion stylings of his favorite computer - yeah, you heard me right...
When we last saw Warlock in his solo series in 1999 (and prior to that in the last fifty issues of "Excalibur" as Douglock), he had taken on Doug's human shape in honor of his friend and his language pattern had evolved to near-perfect English. When he next showed up during "Annihilation" a decade later, he had reverted back to both his original techno-organic shape and "self/query/etc." dialect.
It seems strange that the character was developed as Douglock for half a decade and then totally reverted back to his older character. Will readers ever see any kind of backstory or exposition explaining why Warlock changed so drastically between appearances?


For me, it makes sense that the Douglock persona would serve Warlock well while he was on earth, but would be less useful on his home planet. I think of it as Warlock "going native" on earth, then reverting back to his previous culture when he returned home. Now that he is back on earth, he has no more reason to honor Doug's memory, for obvious reasons.


As long as the continuity police have been put on alert, SDG had a query:
1) I'm really impressed by your use of continuity - you've really shown that you know the characters (well, I think so anyway). However, there is one continuity issue that has raised a bit of a red flag for me and I was hoping that perhaps you could clarify it. When Doug died he was only about 15 years old as I understand it. So how come he appears to be an adult now? He should have come back as a 15 year old, logically speaking, right? Is it to do with the T/O virus? Has it somehow developed his body as well as his powers?


I'll try to explain this without being patronizing, but scientists have proven that the human body continues to grow for five years after death, so if you do the math it all makes sense.
That's not true, you say? I just made that up? Your opinion, SDG.
Seriously though, the T/O virus did physically change Doug, and with Doug's power over its code, it may have responded to his subconscious desires to be slightly larger and "manly."
Or it could just be a matter of artistic interpretation of the character...U-DECIDE!


2) A slightly unrelated question, but still Doug-centric (you can probably tell he's my favorite New Mutant): will you be revealing what it was that Doug said to Amara in order to win her trust in issue #9 at any point?

No. Doug was speaking in a language he had constructed just for Amara. None of us would be able to understand it. 


Really? I thought he whispered, "The ending of ‘Lost in Translation' drove me nuts!"
Moving on, Iceman06 is curious about guests and costumes. What do you say?
1) With Wolfsbane and Warpath leaving X-Force, will you (please) incorporate them into your regular or supporting New Mutants cast? What about other characters with ties to the team like Boom-Boom, Skids, or Husk?


I wanted to answer this question, Iceman, but then I thought about adding another character to the eight I'm juggling now and I started weeping spontaneously. You know how when you cry so much you actually get a headache? That's totally me right now.
I would still like Wolfsbane to stop by at some point, though. 


2) When will the New Mutants get individual costumes like the (other) veteran X-Men? Will you establish signature colors and costumes, or reuse those from the characters' pasts (e.g. Cannonball in purple and blue, Sunspot in red)?

I can't give you an issue number, but I've always planned for their costumes to get updated at some point. The artist will have much more say than I will in the new designs. If you saw how I dressed, you would not want me designing anything you had to see - ever.


Hm, I don't know. I liked your fashion sense in this video.
Our good friend Joshua Hetherington wraps up the day for us with a barrage of queries - Josh, fire away!
1) Will Moonstar ever get some form of her powers back again (and keep them)? I was so happy when she got repowered by Hela, but less than an issue later, it went away...


I like her depowered. I didn't think I would, but I like what it does to her dynamic with the rest of the team. If it's up to me, she won't be getting them back any time soon.
Was that answer your greatest fear come to life? Her powers don't seem so fun anymore, do they?

2) When will we see the Limbo Army make their move? It's been a year since Illyana came back, so shouldn't it occur soon?

That's a good point, I guess. Fine, we'll do it in "New Mutants" #15. 


3) Can we please have Pixie and Magik duke it out? I'm really sick of seeing them appear on the same panel, talk, and act like they're friends.

Chris Yost is going to deal with their relationship in a little tale he's calling "X:-Men: Hellbound," shipping concurrently with the "Second Coming" event. You should check it out.


4) How big will the New Mutants role in "Second Coming" be? It's been stated in solicitations that Cannonball and Magik will be featured in the "Hellbound" miniseries, and that Cypher will be a key figure in the plan to take down Bastion. Will anybody else play an important role?

Nice try, Hetherington. I'm the one who told you about "Hellbound," so don't be all talking like you know more about it than I do.
The New Mutants will be throwing themselves against the unending wall of bad that is coming the X-Men's way in "Second Coming." Warlock will have a moment in Chapter 4 that will shock you.


Awesome! And now it's my turn with a "Behind the X" question. As long as we're talking about "shock," let's see how you fare with this: what is the most exotic/obscure thing you've ever eaten and what were the circumstances?

I had piranha right out of the Amazon River once. And if you're wondering, piranha doesn't taste very good.

Os Novos Mutantes estão entrando em Second Coming e Zeb Wells tira as dúvidas dos fãs.

Falando sobre cada personagem, o autor disse que Magma, por mais que nunca tenha tido um grande senso de equipe, ela está mais próxima de seus amigos, justamente porque, com poucos mutantes no mundo, a tendência à coesão e à proteção é natural.

Cifra ganhou um upgrade de seus poderes em sua volta. Wells explica que o dom de Doug funciona por meio da identificação do que está por trás dos símbolos da linguagem. Ele também parece bem mais velho do que quando morreu, justamente porque, baseado na ciência, o corpo humano envelhece por mais cinco anos após a morte.

Não ficaremos sabendo o que Doug disse para Magma que fez com que ela confiasse nele na edição #9.

Mancha Solar não está sendo tão desenvolvido quanto os outros personagens, pois, para o roteirista, ele já tem uma personalidade mais definida e que não precisa ser tão explorada quanto a dos demais.

Não temos planos para saber mais sobre aquela confusão sobre Douglock ser, na verdade, apenas Warlock. Para Wells, isso ficou claro e Warlock usava a persona de Douglock na Terra como forma de honrar o amigo. Quando voltou ao seu planeta, como mostrado em Aniquilação, essa persona não era necessária.

Sobre Dani Moonstar, o autor prefere que ela fique sem poderes, porque assim ela funciona melhor para a dinâmica da equipe.

Os Novos Mutantes terão maior autonomia depois de Second Coming. Eles têm a confiança de Ciclope e poderão trilhar o seu caminho, mas Scott continuará observando o grupo, à procura de um novo líder para a espécie.

Wells gostaria muito de adicionar novos personagens ao grupo, como aqueles que agora estão sem time – Apache, Boom Boom, Skids, Escalpo-, mas seu grupo já está com elementos demais. Ele gostaria de ter a Lupina ao menos passando pelo título.

Os uniformes do grupo também evoluirão, mas Wells não especificou quando. Eles ficarão mais parecidos com os dos outros X-Men.

Quanto ao Exército do Limbo, que apareceu recentemente, ele não aparec e em Second Coming, mas sim na edição #15. Em Hellbound, teremos mais um pouco da relação entre Magia e Fada e, no capítulo 4 de Second Coming, Warlock terá um papel importante.

Spoiler:


In modern superhero comics, it's more than common for creators to revisit ideas, concepts and characters from the past that have waited outside current continuity yet have been kept alive in the hearts of fans. In fact, nostalgia and reinvention are now part and parcel of the genre's basic formula. But rarely is it that revisiting a past series means going straight back to where the characters were last seen by their creators...except in the case of Marvel Comics burgeoning line of "Forever" comics set in the world of the X-Men. Today, that line expanded by one as the publisher announced the five-issue mini series "New Mutants Forever" by writer Chris Claremont and artists Al Rio and Bob McLeod this August.

While Claremont's ongoing "X-Men Forever" saw its jumping point from the his very famed break from the entire X-line after 1991's "X-Men" #3, the writer explained that though he willingly passed of "New Mutants" to writer/editor Louise Simonson in the '80s, "I gave up 'New Mutants' because there weren't enough hours in the day. We were getting ready to, as I recall, launch 'Excalibur' if not 'Wolverine,' and I couldn't do four monthly titles. Or they didn't want me to do four monthly titles, especially with 'X-Men' bouncing back and fourth to 16 issues a year. It seemed like the most sensible way of dealing with stuff, since Weezey had been in on the creation, to hand them over to her.

"By the same token, it wasn't that I'd run out of stories. If you actually notice when my arc ends in #54, it was a stop point, but there were a lot of loose ends. Karma had just quit. As part and parcel of Jo Duffy's series, Roberto and Warlock had temporarily left the team. Everything was in a serious state of flux, and when Weezey picked up with the next issue, it was sometime after I had left off. There's sort of a window of opportunity where in things could or could not have happened."

That gap in the original series timeline provides the starting point for the new "Forever" miniseries with Claremont promising "The first issue of the mini series picks up about 40 minutes after #54 ends and goes on from there as if I hadn't left the book." However, the comic won't just be filling in spaces in existing canon buy building an all-new run of stories placed within the writer's own personal conception of the cast and their world. Specifically, "New Mutants Forever" pushes the team into a fight to reconnect as a group of young people when their mentor Magneto has left them in the hands of often villainous Selene – AKA the Black Queen of the Hellfire Club.

"She's the adult who's taking care of the team. They're stuck with her," the writer explained. "Since the story is set in large measure in Nova Roma [the lost city of the Roman Empire], you're learning a chunk of her backstory – who she is, why she is, what she's doing there, what her ambitions are. It puts Magma in the position of having to wonder if her hatred of her is justified. It makes you wonder if being the Black Queen is a good thing or a bad thing. It takes the way you're looking at someone from one clichéd direction and maybe suggests that you could be wrong."

Also new for the series will be the visual look for the characters to set them apart from the current "back to basics" approach in the ongoing "New Mutants" monthly. "The first thing is that we designed a totally new visual look for them, which fortunately is very convenient because how they end up getting their costumes is just a zip over to limbo with Ilyana, and when they show up somewhere else, they've got new costume. 'What happened to our costumes?' 'Hey, I didn't like them that much, so I changed them. What's the problem?' That's the advantage of having Ilyana," Claremont laughed.

"I actually find 'New Mutants Forever' a more appropriate/accessible series from my eyes than [the current] 'New Mutants,'" he continued, noting that his view of many of his X-cast was different than what had grown under the pen of others, largely in the view of his younger heroes ages. "One of the ongoing bones of contention I've had over the years with the various approaches to these characters by various writers in other titles was the determination to leap them ahead in age. It was, example, one of the irksome things about the later issues of 'Excalibur' that I felt was a disservice of the character when Kitty was jumped up a few years to 20 if not 21 so it would not be illegal for her to go hang out in bars with Pete Wisdom. And one of the bones of contentions I got in return when I picked her up in Uncanny back in '99/2000 and the first thing I did was establish she was still barely 17, I caught incredible shit from readers who felt I was ignoring existing continuity.

"I think the same pretty much holds true of New Mutants with the ongoing series that exists in the mainstream where the ongoing series exists as an expression of the current vision of the characters where as 'Forever' is an extension of my vision – one of a younger and more innocent group of characters. They were conceived as a group of kids who range in age from 13 to maybe 16 or at the very most 17. They're all high school, if that. To me, there are enough adults running around in the pantheon. It's a more enjoyable and exciting reality to play with when you have them in a portion of their lives where things are still being discovered, limits being tested and cynicism has not yet sunk in. Life is full of anticipation and not the sort of bitterness of reality."

Taking the penciling job for the five-issue run is Al Rio, of whom Claremont said "Al is doing a wonderful job in evoking the characters and the circumstances, but by the same token, he's being inked by Bob McLeod, which gives us an unestimable advantage in that the series co-creator and the characters co-creator has an integral role in the generation of the art for a new series. So as a case in point, Al's vision of 'Berto was a bit wrong. He just didn't have the right reference or understanding of the character, so Bob is fixing it. And now that he's got a sense of what's right, Al can go on from there fine. The two elements provide for a visual balance."

All in all, the writer did not want this book to seem like only nostalgia or some kind of time capsule view of stories he wrote over two decades ago. To him, the strength of the X-Men characters in the Marvel Universe is that they're always a part of the now. "The reality of 'New Mutants Forever,' is effectively the same as it is for the X-Men title. You can't say, 'Oh, this takes place in 1986' or 'This takes place in 1991.' No. They both in their own way take place in 2010. 'X-Men Forever' is a totally contemporary series. The reality the X-Men live in is today's – Barack Obama is president. The Soviet Union as we demonstrated in the crossover with Black Widow and Colossus is now a democratic republic. It is no more locked into a literal past than 'Uncanny' is. Nor should it be."

"New Mutants Forever" #1 debuts in August 2010.


Em agosto estreia mais uma série da linha Forever: Novos Mutantes, com o retorno de Chris Claremont ao título, agora acompanhado dos artistas Al Rio e Bob McLeod.

Claremont precisou larger Novos Mutantes na época, pois não tinha tempo para manter quatro títulos, já que, além de X-Men, ele ainda escrevia Excalibur e Wolverine. Foi então que Louise Simonson assumiu os roteiros.

A última edição feita por Chris foi a #54, quando Karma deixou o grupo e Roberto e Warlock estavam ausentes (apareciam em Fallen Angels). O começo de New Mutants Forever se dá 40 minjutos após o final da edição #54. No roteiro, o grupo voltará a se portar como um grupo de jovens, após Magneto, que na época era seu mentor, deixá-los aos cuidados de Selene.

Outra novidade para a série é o visual, que difere dos uniformes atuais dos Novos Mutantes. Para ele, o universo Forever possibilitará um melhor contato com o que ele realmente acha que são os Novos Mutantes. A encarnação regular da equipe, hoje, na continuidade do Universo Marvel, distanciou-se bastante de sua ideia de ter uma equipe de jovens e inocentes heróis.

Claremont esclareceu que a história se passa em 2010, assim como X-Men Forever. Obama é o presidente e a União Soviética é uma república democrática.

Spoiler:


In a fantastic place like the Marvel Universe, the ultimate weapon isn't some bomb, gun or tank. Rather, it's more likely a living, breathing super-soldier, and throughout the history of the Marvel U, there have been many attempts to create such weapons, Steve Rogers becoming into CaptainAmerica through an experimental serum perhaps being the earliest example. Years later, the fast healing mutant known as Wolverine was given a skeletal system made out of the unbreakable metal known as adamantium, and in one of the Marvel U's numerous possible futures, human soldier Luther Manning is melded with a machine and transformed into the unstoppable cybernetic killer known as Deathlok.

In the current "Tomorrow Dies Today" arc of "Wolverine Weapon X," by writer Jason Aaron and artist Ron Garney, all three characters play roles. We spoke with Aaron about the arc, which began in issue #11 and continue with the the release of issue #12 just this week.

In "Weapon X" #11, Aaron got the chance to pen one of his favorite MarvelComics characters, Captain America. "I'm having a blast writing Cap. In the first part of this arc, I got to write Steve Rogers, and Bucky Barnes, the current Cap, shows up in part two. He's probably a bigger part of the overall story than Steve is. I've always been a Captain American fan, but I think, like a lot of people, I've become a much bigger Captain America fan since Ed Brubaker took over the book. It's been one of my favorite Marvel Comics since his run began. So to get to use both of those guys has been a blast," Aaron told CBR News. "Also, as this arc goes on, we see more Marvel U characters popping up. We see Spider-Man, The Thing and some more of the Avengers. So I got to write several other characters, some of which I had never written before or just touched on briefly."

The story in issue #11 featured Wolverine renewing his friendship with Steve Rogers, who recently made his return to the Marvel Universe after his friends and family believed him to be dead. Aaron feels the friendship between Wolverine and the former Captain America stems from the mutual respect old soldiers have for one another.

"Logan know that Steve's the real deal. He's not just a kid who got bit by a radioactive spider and became a hero. Steve has been a soldier his whole life, and that instantly earns the respect of other old soldiers," Aaron remarked. "And with Logan and Steve, it's a fun dynamic to play with because they're an odd couple. They're not two guys who are typically going to be buddies. Steve obviously has misgivings about how Logan does what he does, but there's still that sort of begrudging respect. Deep down, they obviously have more in common with each other than they do with most of the other people they're around, just because they're both so much older. They've shared a lot of experiences over the years that other people haven't."

In fact, Logan first met Steve Rogers during World War II, and it was also during that time where he met Rogers' sidekick, Bucky Barnes. Their paths crossed again after the war when Bucky, who at the time was operating as the brainwashed Soviet assassin known as the Winter Soldier, murdered Logan's wife. Many years later, the two came to an understanding over the incident and are even teammates on the current incarnation of the New Avengers, but needless to say, a different type of Captain America and Wolverine dynamic will be on display when Bucky gets involved in the action of "Weapon X" #12.

"I think there's still that sort of begrudging respect, but it's buried a lot deeper between those two guys. They are a little too similar, in a lot of ways," Aaron remarked. "They both have their dark pasts that they regret. They're both killers. I also think there's maybe been a little bit of competition between them for Steve's eye. In the stories where you see them together in World War II, it's almost like they're competing for Steve's heart. So there's a lot of cool stuff to play with there. "

In "Weapon X" #11, Aaron introduced a threat that will test all of Wolverine and Bucky's considerable combat skills, unleashing not one but an army of Deathlok cyborgs from the future back to the present. Their mission? Execute the heroes of tomorrow. It may sound like Aaron is paying homage to the "Terminator" franchise with this arc, but Deathlok fans know that the inspiration for "Tomorrow Dies Today" stretches even further back than that.

"I was trying more to go back to the original Deathlok concept, because Deathlok was kind of the Terminator before there was a Terminator. There have been several different versions of Deathlok over the years, and I wanted to get back to the original Luther Manning version, where he was this cyborg killer from the future. In this story, we're taking that to the next level by creating an army of cyborg killers from the future," Aaron said. "As the story goes on, we start to focus on just one member of this army. This Deathlok has an internal struggle dynamic that's a twist on the original Luther Manning struggle. When I went back and read the original '70s Deathlok stories in 'Astonishing Tales,' I found that they were really well written and well drawn stories, and really, the best part of them was this weird internal monologue. That's because you get these conflicting voices within Deathlok. I wanted to get back to that, but not do exactly the same thing. So it's like that, but there is a twist to it.

"The original Deathlok stories in "'Astonishing Tales' were also more science fiction stories than superhero ones. 'Tomorrow Dies Today' does feature superheroes, it will have a similar feel and tone to the earlier tales," Aaron continued. "'Dark Reign: The List - Wolverine' was me telling a high tech, Grant Morrison, big idea style story, but this is really the first sci-fi type story I've done. And starting with the second part of the arc, we get a glimpse of the future that these Deathloks come from. So it's me doing my 'Days of Future's Past' story, but again there's a twist. It's not what you'll expect. So, as this arc goes on, we'll see this story set in the future and these Deathloks wreaking havoc in the present."

As "Tomorrow Dies Today" rolls on, readers will see more and more characters drawn into both the past and future struggles against the Deathloks, and some of those characters won't survive. One thing they won't see, though, is the mastermind behind the Deathloks. "I've left that kind of vague. We just know that the Roxxon corporation seems to be the face of it. Beyond that, I still think it's a story for another day," Aaron said. "With Deathlok, the idea wasn't just to bring the character back for one arc, but to bring the character back and place him firmly within the Marvel Universe and set him up for future stories. In the X-Office, we've already been talking about where Deathlok is going to wind up next. So there are already plans for Deathlok beyond this arc."

"Tomorrow Dies Today" is Aaron's third Wolverine story with veteran artist Ron Garney, and the writer knew he could call on his collaborator to bring to life almost anything. "Ron is great. He's one of those guys that I can put all kinds of crazy non-nonsensical stuff in the script and I know that he's going to boil it down, make it work and make me look like I know what the hell I'm talking about," Aaron remarked. "I've been really excited about this story, and I do get giddy every time I'm able to put Spider-Man in. Ron was doing Spider-Man right before he and I started doing Wolverine stuff. His renditions of the Thing and this army of Deathloks are fantastic, and getting Ron to Draw Captain America again was pretty cool."

Wolverine will spend his summer vacation battling Deathloks as "Tomorrow Dies Today" is a five part story, and Aaron intends for it to be the biggest arc he's done so far in "Wolverine Weapon X." "Like I said, this story involves me throwing a lot of things into the mix. I'm grabbing a lot of other characters from the Marvel U," the writer said. "Then right after that we have a stand alone issue, which is pretty much a complete shift of gears. It's a quiet, somber, character issue...a requiem."


Saiu essa semana a segunda edição do arco “Tomorrow Dies Today” de Wolverine Weapon X, por Jason Aaron e Ron Garney. O arco em cinco edições conta com as presenças de Steve Rogers, Wolverin e Deathlok.

É a chance de Aaron poder escrever um de seus personagens favoritos: Capitão América. E em dose dupla – tanto Steve Rogers, quanto Bucky Barnes dão as caras na edição. Além deles, o Homem-Aranha e o Coisa aparecem também.

No começo de “Tomorrow Dies Today”, Steve e Logan voltam a se encontrar, depois que Steve retornou ao Universo Marvel. Eles são companheiros de longa data e nutrem um respeito mútuo como antigos companheiros de guerra.

Bucky também tem uma ligação com Logan: quando sofreu lavagem cerebral e se tornou o Soldado Invernal, Bucky matou a esposa de Logan.

Os vilões do arco apareceram já na edição #11: alguns Deathloks voltaram do futuro para executar os heróis do presente. Deathlok é um personagem que surgiu em “Astonishing Tales”, mas em um conceito mais ficcional. Com o passar das histórias, saberemos que está por trás de tudo isso – a Corporação Roxxon.

Aaron garantiu que os Deathloks não terão sua volta limitada ao título, mas, futuramente, aparecerão em alguma outra revista mutante.

Logo depois desse arco, teremos uma edição de requiem em Weapon X. Quem sabe não é ligada ao que acontece em Second Coming?

Claremont não larga o osso em Forever:

Spoiler:

Only the legendary Chris Claremont could take the X-Men beyond forever, and he does so this June along with artist Tom Grummet in "X-Men Forever 2," the second volume of his fan-favorite series starring the mighty mutants of the Marvel Universe.

In 1991, Claremont departed Marvel Comics following "X-Men” #3, effectively bringing to an end a nearly two-decade long run with the merry mutants. However, in June 2009, the release of "X-Men Forever" spawned a brand new Claremont continuity that picked up directly after the writer's final issue on the original title. Released on a biweekly schedule, the ambitious project allowed the creator to tell the X-Men story he wanted to tell all those years ago. "Forever" introduced a number of story points which differed drastically from modern continuity, the biggest of which included sending the clawed Canuck, Wolverine, to that big butcher shop in the sky and the idea of mutant burnout, a theory hinting at the eventual eradication of the entire mutant race. Some of the other major points involved S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new role as team overseer, Nightcrawler and Rogue switching both appearances and powers, and the existence of both an adult and child version of Storm.

The first volume of "Forever" wraps up with issue #24 in May, which completes the series' overarching story involving the mysterious Consortium. "The events of the biweekly issues are building to a crescendo," Claremont told Comic Book Resources. "There is a pause for breath in issue #24 for reasons that will become obvious at the end of issue #23. 'X-Men Forever 2' #1 deals with the repercussions. I hate to say it, but speaking in a measure of cliché, the world as the X-Men know it is about to change fundamentally and - knock wood - forever."
Many of those repercussions tie into the final-page reveal of issue #20, which saw Iron Man/Tony Stark unveiled as the head of the Consortium. Claremont said that this revelation and the events that follow bring into question many of the personal and socio-political relationships in his alternate Marvelverse. but that's all part of the fun and challenge of the series. "The idea with 'Forever' is to try to sustain the idea that this is a visually exciting and characterizationally exciting set of stories, and that in the overall scheme of things they mean something, that they are worth the investment of time and money," he explained. "The challenge, the demand, the hope is that we can create characters and stories that are powerful enough and enticing enough that readers will accept them on their own terms as legitimate and keep coming back for more. Being out of the mainstream and not having to depend on sustaining the core characters, we can throw a number of surprise curves at the reader .

"It's very interesting that we debuted the series last year in concert with the Wolverine movie hitting the screen, and the first thing we did was kill off Wolverine," continued the writer. "I suddenly realized, we've just introduced a major character who is not acting the way you'd expect him to act and there's a movie coming out in May. I wonder if this is getting to be an ominous habit."

Beyond the fallout from the Consortium arc, Claremont hinted at a number of other storylines to come in "Forever 2." Some of these carry over from the previous series, such as the decidedly evil adult Storm - dubbed Perfect Storm - and her takeover of Wakanda. "Dealing with Wakanda means dealing with the other power center that is in the Indian Ocean just north of Madagascar. And what, you ask, is that? Well, that's Genosha. As far as the X-Men are concerned, they left Genosha in a state of extreme disruption at the end of X-Tinction Agenda," said Claremont. "So, Genosha is sort of in chaos, but then who knows how the dust is going to settle. For all we know, the Genegineer or the forces loyal to the Genegineer may have retaken control. They may be back to their own machinations. Or is Genosha in a state of confusion and chaos enough to make it ripe for takeover from a conveniently located central African nation who has recently taken on a new leader with ambitions of her own? Just imagine a United States of Genosha and Wakanda. All that technology and all those potential neo-mutants working for Storm. That could be interesting."

Claremont also teased the return of a certain X-Men villain last seen in this continuity at the end of the Mutant Massacre storyline, Mister Sinister; a visit to the Big Apple, complete with pop-ins by both the Morlocks and the Amazing Spider-Man; and an appearance by the Earth's Mightiest Heroes rather early on in the new series. "Tom [Grummet] has just turned in the first batch of pages, and they look great," he said. "There's a scene where the X-Men are cleaning house, and they look up and there are the Avengers , and they look pissed. The real treat in all this is that the Avengers we're looking at are Hawkeye, the Vision, the Scarlet Witch, Captain America, Quicksilver, the Mighty - he's got a beard - Thor. For a classic comic geek like me, this is whoo-hoo! These are fun guys and gals."

The author also acknowledged plans to continue advancing the various character arcs. Although the cover to issue #1 only features a handful of X-Men, Claremont said that these were just "the five that are safe to show at this point." The writer chose not to unveil any other characters - "I can, but why spoil the fun" - but he freely gave hints on what's to come for those already known.

Both Rogue and Nightcrawler find themselves in rather precarious positions. The southern belle isn't too fond of her new blue fur and pointy ears and the former carnival star now finds himself off balance with a full set of fingers and no tail. Meanwhile, Scott and Jean's relationship also continues to change, possibly to the point of irreparability. Astute readers will also notice from the cover that Kitty Pryde continues to evolve, both physically and emotionally. "The style of her appearance is very reminiscent of Japanese [culture]," said Claremont. "Her hair is Japanese. She's wearing Japanese style boots. There's definitely an evolution going on. There is still some potential between Kitty and Gambit [as a relationship]. Ro is all for it. She thinks Kitty and Gambit is perfect."

Artist Tom Grummet lends his more than capable hands to Claremont in visually representing these stories. The writer praised Grummet's ability to not only convey the subtle character moments, but also his skill at establishing pivotal opening scenes. "What we don't have a lot of anymore is an artist taking the time and trusting his or her creative instinct and talent to generate that core establishing shot and giving the reader a visual point they can anchor to and from which they can spin out and look at all the subsequent associated scenes in a context," Claremont explained. "What you end up with is everything looking very, very generic and non-memorable. That, to me, is sad. You lose the opportunity to do a classic Jack Kirby moment, where you have a news cameraman and a cop down on the street with this huge Kirby-camera on a pedestal looking up at Galactus on top of the Baxter Building. It's been forty odd years, and I still remember that."

Between the return of X-Villains to the appearance of the Avengers, to the ticking death clock looming over every mutant on the planet, there's a lot coming for the X-Men as they head into "Forever 2." Of course, many readers still wonder whether this is exactly the story Claremont planned on telling from the beginning or whether it has evolved and changed over time. When asked, the writer admitted to both. "I hate to say it, but my stock answer is, six of one, half dozen of the other. The idea is that my vision of the X-Men has always been fungible. That's part of the reason why when [editor] Mark Paniccia and I started talking about this, one of the first things we decided, one of the things I was fairly insistent on, was that it takes place today," he said. "It's not 1991. We're not doing a flashback. The day is now. The time is now. The characters are now. The world is now. This is not retrostructure. This is a vision of what is happening within the context of the world we understand and live in. I think it allows for a whole lot of interesting twists and turns evolving up and out of this that never occurred to us in 1991. [In] the United States, the events of the last 10 years alone, have made a substantial difference in the way we approach things."

As mentioned earlier, this has all led to a few major curveballs thrown the readers' way over the course of the original "Forever" series, and from the sound of things, it looks like Claremont still has a few wild pitches left up his sleeves for "Forever 2."

"If anyone wants to come and debate some interesting story points with me at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, you'll have three issues of 'X-Men Forever 2' to argue about, and they'll be exciting," laughed Claremont. "We will definitely get some people pissed off - or thrilled."

Nem bem chega ao fim o volume 1 de X-Men Forever, após 24 edições quinzenais e um anual, e o volume 2 já chega às comic-shops americanas em junho. À frente do roteiro Chris Claremont se mantém no título, com os desenhos de Tom Grummet.

Entre as novidades trazidas até agora, temos uma troca de poderes entre Noturno e Vampira, a redefinição do papel da SHIELD, o contraste entre versões adulta e infantil de Tempestade, e a apresentação do misterioso Consortium. O volume 2 trata das repercussões do volume 1. Claremont abusa do clichê ao afirmar que o mundo como os X-Men o conhecem está prestes a mudar para sempre.

Essas repercussões estão ligadas ao que pudemos presenciar no final da edição #20, quando foi revelado que Tony Stark está por trás do Consortium. A queda do Consortium e a apresentação de novos plots dão o tom das próximas edições de Forever. No segundo volume, teremos a versão adulta maligna de Tempestade dominando Wakanda, e Genosha em ebulição, vivendo as consequências do Programa de Extermínio.

Quem também está de volta são o Senhor Sinistro, os Morlocks, o Homem-Aranha e os Vingadores. Claremont garantiu que o elenco dos X-Men estará bem limitado, com apenas cinco membros a salvo no começo do volume 2.

O autor garantiu que os personagens continuarão a encarar mudanças: Vampira e Noturno se encontram em situações precárias; o relacionamento de Jean e Scott continua oscilando; Kitty Pride mantém sua transformação física e emocional, e pode se envolver com Gambit.

Para quem está acompanhando X-Men Forever, não deixe de ler o final do volume 1, nas próximas semanas.

X-Position com Peter David:

Spoiler:

J.J. Meylar starts things off with a tip and a couple questions. What do you say?
Hey, Mr. David! First off, you need a Facebook page so you can connect with your fans more often. Now, for a few questions:
1) Do you have any plans for Mr. Clay to show back up and confront Madrox?


Yes, actually. He'll be showing up some time after issue #211.

2) Is Qui Chang dead? He's one of those duplicates that one would expect to see every now and then. I've been wondering about his status ever since that one dupe was killed by poison during that whole thing with the X-Cell...

I assume you mean Kwai Chang, and the dupes don't die unless they're actually killed in action. The thing is, Kwai Chang is not Kwai Gone (get it? Kwai G...never mind). His personality and experiences still exist within Jamie.
Indeed, we may well have seen him in the form of any dupe who was counseling a peaceful solution, to say nothing of his knowledge of martial arts. It's just that he wasn't wearing the robes that he was attired in when we last saw him.

Interesting thought. And for the record J.J., PAD happily connects with his fans over at his blog. Swing by and tell him X-POSITION sent you!
As long as we're on the topic of Madrox and his many dupes, Daniel Jay wanted to express his enthusiasm for Jamie's mutant ability.
I love the exploration of Jamie Madrox's multiple personalities through his dupes, both in personality and in sending them off to become experts at various fields (detective, monk, etc.). What further plans do you have regarding this aspect of Multiple Man?


At this point, he's gathered in pretty much all the stray dupes, but random bits of knowledge that Jamie displays are still courtesy of the things he learned courtesy of the various dupes exploring the world.

Mutatis Mutandor is intrigued by Layla Miller (as are her colleagues, of course). As she's a girl who "knew stuff" because of her time-travelling, Mutatis was wondering if there is still "stuff" for her to know...
I'm a huge fan of yours and show your work to others as an example of how to be surprising without killing off twenty children. That said, I'm a little confused about Layla Miller. As of issue #50, she seemed to no longer be in a place to "know stuff," yet in the current storyline, she still does this. So was this a matter of Layla telling Madrox what he needed to hear, or am I missing something?


Remember Marty McFly's big plan in "Back to the Future II?" Where he acquired the book of sports scores and was going to use it to be on games and make money? All of those games occurred between 1985 and the end of the 20th century (and hey, where's my flying car anyway)?
The point is, Marty hadn't lived through those years, but - had he held onto the sports almanac - he could have benefited from the information therein. Same basic deal. Layla jumped over eighty years worth of information, but she had the better part of a decade to gather as much information about all the time that she missed. So she's still got plenty of info at her disposal.

JCC also had a query about Layla and the future she's facing at present...that makes sense, right?
I was thinking about when X-Factor faced off against the Damian 'Tryo.' From what we saw, it looked like the eldest Tryp was still threatening Layla at the end. Now that Layla is (somewhat) back, will we be seeing any more of this story again soon?


Yes.

A one-word answer. To the point, yet mysterious - much like Layla!
Marius665 sent in an email about little Layla as well. Let's see what's on his mind:
Are we ever going to learn who Layla Miller's parents are? When Quake was sent out by Nick Fury to recruit people for the Secret Warriors in "Mighty Avengers," I know Layla was on that list. With each of those characters having a parent that used to be a villain, what does that mean for Layla?


To the best of my knowledge, Layla's parents are dead and were never villains.

To be fair, I think that was Nick Fury's Christmas card list.
X-POSITION regular Joshua Hetherington sent in a bevy of well-worded inquiries. Oh Josh, what would we do without you?
1) Banshee lives! At least for a little while (though a few revived mutants did escape apparently). Will Siryn run into the Dad she only recently accepted as dead?


Nope. Believe me, it was tempting, but I thought about and decided, y'know what? The business with her dad dying was such a long-running character arc, and she finally made peace with it...it just seemed needlessly cruel to rip the scab off that wound with no real character benefit and no clear understanding of where I would go with it. After all she's been through, Terry is finally getting her head back together. Let's let her have some peace of mind, at least for a little while.

2) What are the chances of Valeria Richards reappearing anytime soon? She was awesome.

She's an FF character, but if they ever want to dump her from the book, she has a home in X-Factor.

3) Will the Isolationist; Josef Huber, return to screw with X-Factor again?

Yes.

4) Any chance Penance or the M-Twins could reappear anytime soon?

We have some serious stuff coming up for Monet over the next few months which does indeed involve members of her family.

5) When is Quicksilver returning to mess with his former teammates? I'd love to see their reaction to him having powers and being back on the 'good guys' team. Would they even buy it?

They probably wouldn't buy it, no. Pietro is busy elsewhere, so there's no immediate plans, but I wouldn't say it's out of the question.

6) And on that note...rematch - Quicksilver vs. Layla. You know it's the battle to end all battles (they're arch-nemeses, after all). Any chance this is coming in the future?

If he's available, sure.

7) I was hoping you and Craig Kyle and Chris Yost were going to do an X-Factor/X-Force crossover story. Should I give up on this dream?

No plans at the moment, which isn't to say that there couldn't be some ripple effects from X-Force's activities.

Nicholas Marinelli closes down the party with the last question of the day. While he enjoys "X-Factor," he seems to be more interested in the "W"-factor:
I noticed that you have always had a good grip on Wolverine, and it seems you delve into him every now and then and the stories are always great (the "Terra" series, MCP stories, and "Election Day"). Do you have any plans to possibly get back into a Wolverine tale?


Not in "X-Factor," but if Marvel wanted me to take a crack at Logan, I'd be up for it.

Before we go, it's time for this week's "Behind the X" question, where fans get to learn what makes X-writers tick. Here's PAD's bit of close and personal fun: what is the best birthday you've ever had and why?

I'd say the first one. Don't remember much about it, but it was certainly the liveliest.

Peter David está fazendo um excelente trabalho em X-Factor e o título mantém o ritmo desde que o grupo retornou para Nova Iorque. Os planos de David vão longe e ele já vislumbra edições para o final do ano.

Mr. Clay, personagem que apareceu na minissérie de Madrox e que tem os mesmos poderes de Jamie, aparecerá após a edição #211. Valeria Richards pode aparecer novamente. A volta do Isolacionista está confirmada. Familiares de M também – abrindo a chance das gêmeas e de Suplício ganharem as páginas da revista. Por outro lado, não há planos imediatos para o Mercúrio e nem para um crossover com a X-Force – mas é possível que o título sofra alguns efeitos do que acontece em X-Force.

A revelação da natureza dos poderes de Layla e de como ela sabe das coisas ainda causa muita confusão. David faz uma alusão com De Volta Para o Futuro II: Layla está se beneficiando de toda a informação reunida anteriormente, mesmo agora na idade adulta. O autor também desmentiu os boatos de que os pais de Layla seriam vilões. Para ele, os pais dela estão mortos. Ainda falando da garota, com a sua volta teremos a oportunidade de ver mais aventuras com Damian “Tryo”.

Após Necrosha, ninguém sabe o paradeiro de Banshee ressuscitado. David, porém, vetou a possibilidade de colocar Siryn frente-a-frente com Sean. Seria cruel demais na opinião do autor, agora que ela já conseguiu fazer as pazes com ela própria.

David também não tem planos para Wolverine. Pelo menos, não em X-Factor, mas deixo em aberto a oportunidade de fazer alguma coisa para o carcaju.

Yost fala sobre a X-Force em Second Coming

Spoiler:


By Marc Strom

Second Coming, currently running through all of the X-titles, claims its first major victim on April 28 in X-FORCE #26, as writers Craig Kyle and Chris Yost along with artists Mike Choi and Sonia Oback bring the grim reaper to the party.

Kyle and Yost planted many of the seeds that have come to fruition in Second Coming throughout their run on X-FORCE, placing both the book and the team at the epicenter of events that will change the Children of the Atom forever.

"X-FORCE was building to the confrontation with Bastionfrom day one, but it was a story that we knew was bigger than X-Force," admits Yost. "Having [that confrontation] play out in Second Coming has been the best of both worlds. It just made sense, given what was happening with Hope's return. And with the help of [writers] Matt [Fraction], Zeb [Wells], Mike [Carey] and the editors, we think we've come up with something pretty engaging. There's mystery, action, tragedy, triumph, more tragedy, and some hard questions are asked. Who is Hope? What does she mean to the future of mutantkind? Why does Cyclops hate walls so much? Why is Bastion pink?"

And with the death of a major character in X-FORCE #26, Second Coming shifts into warp drive as it continues.

"We've killed our fair share of characters, usually laughing as we typed the words," jokes Yost. "This one was different. It's always up to the writers to make that impact felt as time goes on, but I think this is a game changer. Not just who dies, but why they die. A lot of the X-Menare going to be hugely torn by it. It changes how they see what they're doing, and why, and for who."

As the X-Men leader, Cyclops has put a lot of faith in Hope's return, confident that the young mutant-the first born since M-Day eradicated the mutant gene-represents the future of mutantkind. But does the rest of the team share in his belief?

"The answer is 'no,' and you'll see that first hand," promises Yost. "Cyclops tries to lay out why he believes in Hope so much, and at a certain point realizes it's a matter of faith, something he's not accustomed to. Others aren't quite so ready to place their fates in Hope's hands. And Hope isn't necessarily ready for that, either."

In Second Coming's opening chapters, the rest of the X-Men learned of X-Force's existence as Cyclops' private wet-ops team, and not all of them approve of their leader's decisions.

"I think Cyclops and X-Force all knew the day would come," says Yost. "And they're all ready to own up to their actions, but it's going to be a rough road. In the pages of X-FORCE, various members questioned what they were doing-several even quit after 'Necrosha'-but this is it for them. Second Coming is what everyone's been waiting for. Every life they've taken has been to ensure their survival for this day.

"But now they're finding that just because Hope is back, things aren't necessarily going to get easier. Possibly quite the opposite."

Though X-Force has dealt with Bastion and his minions firsthand since their creation, the X-Men will have trouble looking to them and their experiences when it comes time to take the villain down.

"After the team's existence is revealed, trust is a big issue," relates Yost. "Leadership might have gone out the window. But sacrifice hasn't."

With a history of violence and fast-paced action, X-FORCE has provided fans with a side of the X-Men's universe they'd never seen before, and things only get bloodier from here on out according to Yost:

"The Second Coming chapters of X-FORCE are some of the most brutal issues we've ever turned in. We've been saying for a few years now that the X-Men are fighting for their survival. Well, this is it. This is that final fight. And things are about to escalate."

Second Coming pretende revolucionar o andamento das histórias mutantes, mas o grande impacto deve ser em X-Force, que agora é uma equipe conhecida de todos os X-Men. Assim, é natural que haja uma grande ansiedade por parte dos fãs a respeito das próximas edições. Além do mais, pela grande morte que acontecerá em X-Force #26.

O escritor Chris Yost é um dos responsáveis pelo desenvolvimento de Second Coming, pois, juntamente com seu parceiro Craig Kyle, plantou as sementes para o que acontece no evento, como a volta de Bastion à galeria das grandes ameaças.

O retorno de Bastion aconteceu nas páginas de X-Force, mas Yost afirma que o vilão é grande demais para ficar restrito a um título. Dessa forma, encontrou-se alguém que fosse útil tanto para o último capítulo da trilogia da Messias quanto para concluir essa fase em X-Force.

Um ingrediente que apimenta a saga é a morte de um personagem importante. Yost relembra que muitos já foram mortos em seus títulos, como Novos X-Men e a própria X-Force, e eles nunca se importaram bastante com cada um desses personagens mortos. Mas agora é diferente: não só por quem morre, mas pelo motivo da morte. Isso romperá os X-Men ao meio e mudará o que eles estavam, o porquê e por quem.

Os X-Men já estão bastante fragilizados, pois nem todos compartilham a mesma esperança de Ciclope no significado da volta de Esperança. Além disso, a própria menina não está pronta para o que esperam que ela faça.

Logo no começo de Second Coming, a descoberta da X-Force por parte de Noturno e outros X-Men colaborou para estremecer ainda mais a liderança de Ciclope. Ele e a X-Force sabiam que isso aconteceria um dia, mas, mesmo que eles estivessem se preparando, o momento agora é dos mais difíceis. Todos aguardavam por Second Coming e esse dia marcará a vida dos mutantes.

Mesmo com a desconfiança sobre a liderança de Scott, o momento agora não poupará sacrifícios. Seguindo a linha do título, X-Force guardará os momentos mais brutais do evento. É a luta final para os X-Men: o último capítulo em sua batalha pela sobrevivência.

Reckoning vem aí:

Spoiler:

In the aftermath of Marvel's "House of M" event, the amnesiac Wolverine regained all of the memories of his long life back, along with the revelation that several decades ago, a secret organization turned Wolverine into their slave and assassin. When the ongoing series "Wolverine Origins" began in 2006, Logan set out to bring down this conspiracy and make them pay for what they did to him. Wolverine's vendetta became complicated by the discovery that he had a son he had never knew about, and to make matters worse, the conspiracy's head, Romulus, raised that son, the villainous Daken, to hate his father. Complicating things even further was the fact that Romulus actually wanted Wolverine to come after him and kill most of his agents. The master manipulator has been looking for someone to succeed him in his position, and now there are two remaining candidates: Wolverine and Daken.

So if Wolverine is to have any hope of breaking him and his son free from Romulus's influence, he'll have to take the Machiavellian villain down once and for all. This April, Logan puts a plan in motion to do just that in "Reckoning," a four part crossover between "Wolverine Origins by writer Daniel Way and artist Will Conrad and Daken's series "Dark Wolverine" by Way, his co-writer Marjorie Liu, and artist Stephen Segovia. CBR News spoke with Way about "Reckoning" which kicks off April 21 in "Dark Wolverine" #85 before continuing a week later in "Wolverine Origins" #47.

In "Wolverine Origins" #46, in stores now, Way set the stage for "Reckoning" with a story that had Wolverine confessing his role in the death of one of his greatest loves, Mariko Yashida, to his teammate Nightcrawler. According to the writer, there were a couple of reasons to revisit Mariko before moving on to "Reckoning."
"Wolverine is a character who doesn't have any shortage of tragic moments, but this one was particularly tragic because what usually happens to Wolverine is that the woman he loves is killed. With Mariko, he's the one that did the killing and that's haunted him for a very long time. He's never really confronted it, or at least readers have never been privy to how he sees the events," Way told CBR News. "As fans, we saw things from a third person perspective, and it was tragic and heartbreaking, but how does Wolverine feel about this? He knows that going into what he's going into against Romulus, which also involves his son, he needs to be unencumbered. He needs to have a clear head. He wants to put all this stuff behind him. So this is one of those things right at the top of the list. If he doesn't do this, it's going to carry over, and that's where he's been for so long. Everything has just carried over into the next phase and snowballed and gotten worse. So he's just trying to come to grips and really starting to be honest with himself."

As a way of coming to grips with what happened to Mariko, Wolverine revealed to Nightcrawler that Mariko had been poisoned, and, instead of watching his love die a slow and agonizing death, Wolverine fulfilled her last request and killed her with his claws. Wolverine wanted Nightcrawler to blame him for Mariko's death, but his friend instead encouraged Logan to accept the fact that he did what he thought was best in a situation that he had no control over, and he should forgive himself. This struggle between blame and forgiveness is one of the central themes of "Origins."

"At the end of the Mariko story, Wolverine doesn't forgive himself. He's basically admitting his guilt, and he has a friend there who's trying to point out some alternate takes on it," Way explained. "Wolverine, though, the more he talks about it, the more he becomes married to the idea that it was all his fault. It's almost like he's trying to atone too much. The character that seems to be everywhere all the time is trying to take the blame for everything.

"What he's trying to do with Nightcrawler, is, he's trying to get someone to agree with him that he's the worst fucking person in the world," Way continued. "Does he have stuff to atone for? Yes. Has he made mistakes? Yes, but are they all his fault? No. He's not quite ready to accept that though. He gives it a valiant try, but at the end when Nightcrawler is telling him that he might actually be wrong, that's not what he's ready to hear. What he wants to hear is, 'How could you?'"

At the end of "Origins" #46, Wolverine leaves Nightcrawler to go meet his ally in the final battle against Romulus, his son Daken. The duplicitous Daken agrees to help Wolverine for two reasons. One, he hates Romulus almost as much as his father, and two, he want to make sure that Romulus doesn't rob him of the honor of killing dear old dad.

"Daken is going to stick close, because it's just his nature to be opportunistic. He knows something is happening. It involves Romulus and Wolverine and therefore it involves him. So he's going to keep himself in that player position as much as possible - and he loves that position, Way remarked. "That is why he so readily agrees to help, because Wolverine is coming to him. That's exactly where he wants him to be, but as you'll see during 'Reckoning,' the old man is a lot smarter than the kid gives him credit for."

When Daken and Wolverine meet at the end of "Origins" #46 Daken is not clad in his father's old costume, because "Reckoning" takes place after "Dark Reign," and now that Norman Osborn is no longer in power, Daken doesn't have the fun of impersonating his father on a global stage as a member of the Dark Avengers. "When Daken kind of came into the spotlight during 'Dark Reign,' he did so wearing his father's costume. So he never really gave up any of his anonymity, and that's something that he uses to his advantage constantly. He remains that unknown quantity," Way explained. "And he said in his first appearance in 'Origins,' his costume is the clothes that he wears every day. What he is; is underneath. If he were to quantify himself and wear a costume, then everyone would know that's him. So I don't see Daken as a guy who wears a costume. His costume is whatever he's wearing that day, because that's not really him. It's just want he wants you to see."

Way describes "Reckoning" as a story that involves international intrigue and is ultimately about the meaning of revenge. "We have three characters in this story who are motivated by revenge," the writer told us. "Romulus wants revenge against humanity as a race, because he's been around for a very long time. He was here when we were still huddling in the caves, and that was when he was at the top of the food chain, him and others like him. Eventually they lost, because they lost the numbers. It wasn't that we were all that impressive as singular animals, but en masse, we just kind of came flooding out and, before he knew it, they were surrounded. Romulus countered that by going behind the scenes and becoming this puppet master. That's the way that he operates, and we've shown this in 'Origins.' He finds someone in a position of some power and then offers them a lot more in exchange for something. At the same time, he's doing the same thing with that person's opposite number. He's playing them against one another, escalating the conflict, with the goal being the maximum body count. This is what Wolverine was continuously deployed for, and this is what Daken was trained for from birth. They take bad situations and make them infinitely worse.
"Wolverine's revenge has been unfocused for such a long time until Romulus kind of coalesced out of the mist. So now it's focused on him," Way continued. "Daken always felt that he got short changed. He got Wolverine as a dad, Romulus as a step dad. One of them didn't know him and the other one didn't love him. He's surrounded by lesser beings and just continuously disgusted by what he has to deal with and how meager everything is. If only he could clean the slate things would be much better. So 'Reckoning' is an exploration of revenge as a motivation. Where does it get you and where does it take you?"

For four years now in "Origins," Way has been telling a long form story that often features intrigue, explosive violence and double crosses. Since "Reckoning" is the climax to that story, readers can expect all of those elements to be present; they'll just be turned up to 11. "Everybody gets sold out in this crossover [Laughs]. Every single character winds up on the short end of the stick at one point or the other, but that's just the nature of the characters," Way said. "It's not that Wolverine is necessarily deceptive. It's just that he's extremely streetwise. He's been through plenty of brutal scrapes, so he knows how to maneuver in this territory. Daken is deceptive and opportunistic. Romulus is deceptive, but not necessarily opportunistic in that he doesn't really take advantage of opportunities. He creates them."

"Reckoning" is the climax to the story of "Origins," but it's not the final storyline. The series will wrap up with a two part coda called "What I Do" that begins in June's "Wolverine Origins" #49 and finishes in July in issue #50, the extra long series finale.

"This is where we kind of sum it all up. Wolverine has been on this cycle for so long. He falls in love. He has some peace. That peace is ripped away from him because the woman that he loves is killed. He goes crazy and does a bunch of bad things. During that time, he always ends up teaming up with somebody and does more bad things. He burns himself out. He runs away. He finds a girl, He finds peace. Then the cycle starts again when she's killed. It's been repeated several times," Way stated. "Now, that's not a coincidence. This is a pattern of behavior, and it comes from a century of conditioning. This is always what he was supposed to do. We've shown throughout 'Origins' that Romulus, as long as he's been in control, he's always in on those key moments, whether it's indirectly or through one of his agents like Cyber or guys like that.

"After a century, this is a hard habit to break, and in 'What I Do,' that conditioning, that behavior is trying to reassert itself. Basically, it's Wolverine white knuckling it through withdrawal," Way continued "We bring in everything; all of the old tell tale signs like Sabretooth showing up on his birthday to beat the shit out of him. Why does that happen every year? Does it really happen every year? And why? We show the whole cycle in that one story, but this time around the big question is: are we going to see the whole cycle? Or is he finally going to put the brakes on it? And, really, how bad are things going to get? It's almost like this thing inside of him takes off and has a life of its own. It's controlled him for so long. Can the real man step out and put a stop to it?"

Most of "Origins" has been about Wolverine coming to terms with his past, but for the series final arc Way is forcing his protagonist to face his future. "Wolverine has never given himself time to consider his future. It's probably the one thing that he's afraid of. There's a scene with Cloak in a previous arc, where Wolverine is in the Darkforce Dimension and just stares out into the darkness. This light comes at him, and that's his future," Way stated. "It's something he's never seen before, and this is a guy who's seen everything. He shies away from it then, but what we need to do is get Wolverine to reconcile his past, before he moves on to his future. That's really the point of 'Origins.' If you don't know where you came from, you'll have no idea where you're going."

In June in "Dark Wolverine" #87, Daken will also be coming to terms with what the future holds for him. "At the end of 'Reckoning' Daken is so busy screwing over everybody else that he leaves himself open to a strike from someone he didn't expect it from. It's almost a fatal blow to his perceived path towards his perceived destiny. In #87, what he has to do is reorient, and he still wants the same things. He just has to figure out a new way to get them," Way said. "The issue is kind of an interlude where Daken goes to Rome and has another disastrous flirtation with love, or at least love Daken style. It's similar to what we did with the recent issue featuring Moonstone. This is a time where he's kind of reorganizing himself. We get to kind of look behind the curtain a bit and see just how scary this guy is."
After issue #87 "Dark Wolverine" begins another crossover; this time with Rick Remender's "FrankenCastle" series. "After Daken cut Frank Castle up into pieces and threw him into the sewer [Which happened in the one-shot "Dark Reign: The List-Punisher" by Rick Remender and John Romita Jr.], Frank came back. So for those of us who know the Punisher character, did we think for a second that he was going to let that slide?" Way remarked. "This is a story that everybody saw coming. This is round two, but obviously the parameters have changed in both corners of the ring. Because Daken isn't in the same place anymore, and obviously, Frank Castle is a much different man than the one Daken faced before [He's now an undead Frankenstein style monstrosity]. The story is going to be another one of those balls to the wall complete gore fests, and Rick, Marjorie and I are having a great time with it."

Daken will spend his summer vacation tussling with Frank Castle, and when the fall comes, a new era begins for Wolverine's villainous son. "I can't really express how gratified I am by the response to 'Dark Wolverine' by the fans. When I came up with the character, and we brought in Marjorie and we sat down to start fleshing out what this character would do in his own book, we knew it was going to be explosive. It was going to be something that people were going to love or hate. And history shows that comic fans are really good at hating stuff [Laughs]," Way said "There really wasn't anything we were doing with 'Dark Wolverine' that had a precedent. Our hero was a bad guy, not an anti-hero, a real fucking bad guy. His stories didn't have clear beginnings, middles, and ends. Things were always in flux. He's a character that would push others out, so at times you were seeing more of satellite characters than you were of the main character, simply because that's how he operates. This is some new territory.

"Then there was his sexuality. As much we didn't consider it to be an issue, I think we all acknowledged that there was some opportunity for some blowback there. Yet, the book came out, and we got the coolest feedback," Way continued. "Early on, I had [a conversation] with Marjorie where she just said, 'Dan, we need to go balls out on this thing.' It sounded so funny coming out of her mouth. She's calling me out. So we just really went for it, and people seemed to really enjoy this book and enjoy the character. They cheer him on, but at the same time their cheers are like, 'Screw you! You're a bastard!' But they're still there and they're still into it. They're able to read into the book are able to enjoy some of the more subtle, sub-textual things about it. And I think that's incredible. I wouldn't have bet on it being a hit, but Goddamn it! It's a hit.

""So, all that being said, the book has done really well. Even though 'Dark Reign' was coming to an end with 'Siege,' there was absolutely no reason for us to stop doing the book, and there are some big changes ahead for 'Dark Wolverine.' We'll continue on into the 'Heroic Age,' and whatever comes next. It looks like this character has found his footing and found his audience and we're going to do our best to keep that momentum going."

Wolverine recuperou suas memórias como consequência de Dinastia M. Para a tarefa de conduzir o personagem no mergulho em seu passado, a Marvel escalou Daniel Way para o título Wolverine Origins, que estreou em 2006. Foi nesse título que Wolverine conheceu seu filho: Daken, um perigoso mutante que nutria um ódio mortal por seu pai. Outro personagem que apareceu no título foi Romulus, aquele que estaria no ápice da “cadeia alimentar” da subespécie mutante (lupina) em que Wolverine se encontra – tudo isso criado por Jeph Loeb e aproveitado por Way.

Essa trama está prestes a terminar com a estreia do crossover Reckoning (Acerto de Contas), que sai a partir do mês de abril nas revistas Dark Wolverine e Wolverine Origins. Recentemente, foi lançado o prólogo em Wolverine Origins # 46, com a confissão de Wolverine na morte de Mariko Yashida (Logan a matou, a pedido dela, livrando-a do sofrimento do veneno). Com a confissão, Logan estava buscando que Noturno o condenasse, mas, pelo contrário, Kurt lhe mostrou que o ato foi, na verdade, uma decisão muito corajosa. Mesmo assim, Wolverine ainda não se perdoou pelo que fez.

A morte de Mariko a oportunidade que Way teve para mostrar um momento trágico na vida de Logan, o qual pode se repetir agora, quando ele precisará encarar Romulus de forma definitiva. No final do prólogo, Logan se junta ao seu filho para enfrentar o inimigo comum. Duas razões levaram Daken a aceitar essa parceria: o ódio por Romulus e a garantia de que ninguém mais matará Logan, a não ser o próprio Daken.

Um fato interessante é que Daken já não vestirá mais o manto de Wolverine, como consequência do final do Reinado Sombrio. Norman Osborn não está mais no poder e os Dark Avengers já não existem mais. Agora, Daken está de volta ao seu visual anônimo, sem nenhum uniforme especial.

Vingança é o termo que marca Reckoning. Todos os três personagens envolvidos estão atrás de vingança. Romulus quer se vingar da humanidade como raça, Logan está focando sua vingança na figura de Romulus e Daken por considerar os demais inferiores a ele e, por isso, inaptos a ocupar o topo da cadeia.

Nos últimos quatro anos, tivemos bastante intriga, violência e jogo duplo. Como Reckoning é o fim da história, podemos esperar todos esses elementos em dose máxima. Mesmo sendo o clímax do título, Reckoning será sucedido por um último arco em duas partes (junho e julho), chamado de “What I Do”. Ele será o momento de reflexão de Logan. Wolverine pensará em tudo o que fez até agora e em algumas questões que nunca foram respondidas, como a razão de Dentes-de-Sabre aparecer sempre em seu aniversário. Enquanto quase toda a série foi marcada por assuntos do passado de Logan, o último arco tratará de como ele encarará seu futuro.

Pela parte de Daken, os reflexos de Reckoning serão tratados em Dark Wolverine #87, de junho. Após o cross, ele estará muito vulnerável ao futuro, pois tudo o que fez até o momento foi buscar um acerto de contas com Romulus e Logan. A edição #87 será uma espécie de interlúdio em Roma para o que vem na sequência. Assim como na edição com a Rocha Lunar, é um momento em que ele procura reorganizar as coisas consigo próprio.

Na sequência, Daken entra em um outro crossover, com o Justiceiro, envolvendo o personagem FrankenCastle. É o momento da vingança do Justiceiro, após ser retalhado no especial The List. Ao final do cross, uma nova era começará para Dark Wolverine.

E aqueles que duvidam da sexualidade do personagem terão suas preces atendidas. Esse assunto está entre os que devem ser tratados futuramente. Mesmo com o final de Reinado Sombrio, o título continuará saindo em Heroic Age, porque o personagem foi aceito pelo público e encontrou seu caminho sozinho.

Re: X-Position

Nova X-Force estreia em outubro:

Spoiler:

A Heroic Age is about to begin in the Marvel Universe. At first glance, it looks like this new era will be a time of hope where costumed champions can walk in the sunlight and get back to the business of helping people. Appearances can be deceiving, though. A secret society is putting a plan into motion that would turn this age of heroes into the Age of Apocalypse! The only thing standing in their way is the cast of “New X-Force,” a new ongoing series by the creative team behind “Fear Agent” and “Punisher,” writer Rick Remender and artist Jerome Opeña. CBR News spoke with Remender about “New X-Force,” which begins in October and was announced Sunday at Marvel's X-Men panel at the C2E2 Convention in Chicago.

The current volume of “X-Force” details the exploits of a clandestine wetworks team Cyclops put together to protect the endangered mutant species from anti-mutant hate and terrorist groups. The cast just became embroiled in “Second Coming,” a massive crossover between the various titles in the X-Men line, and recent developments in the story have lead to certain X-Men uncovering the existence and purpose of X-Force.

“Scott Summers had a heavy involvement in X-Force and felt that it was the only solution at the time. Scott was playing the role of general in a war so it felt like something that was necessary,” Remender told CBR News. “After the dust settles from 'Second Coming,' I don't know if that will be Scott's perspective anymore. People who fight wars need to believe that their war has to end at some point. Coming out of 'Second Coming,' I think we'll see a different perspective in terms of where the X-books are at. That leads to a very different working relationship with the members of the new X-Force.”

In “New X-Force,” the titular team is brought together because one of their number uncovers a shocking revelation. “One of the cast learns that Apocalypse has returned and that his followers, Clan Akkaba, have good reason to believe that the Age of Apocalypse -- the time their master takes total control of Earth -- will begin when everybody's guard is down. So it's starting to look like the Heroic Age is indicator that the Age of Apocalypse is about to begin,” Remender explained. “The person who made this discovery is worried that Apocalypse's most powerful agents, the Four Horsemen, have secretly intermingled with the rest of the mutant population. So this person can't discuss why or how he found this out. Because if they told the wrong person and that person was one of or in cahoots with the Four Horsemen, then they tip their hand and Apocalypse knows that they know he's back.”

Once certain of Apocalypse's return, the X-Men invite several heroes who they know -- or think they know -- for absolute certain aren't in league with Apocalypse. Remender had to keep the identities of most of the new team a secret, but was able to reveal that Wolverine will return as the team's field leader in “New X-Force.” “With the exception of Wolverine this is an almost entirely new team,” Remender remarked. “Only one other has any previous connection to X-Force, but they're all A-list characters. They're big, heavy hitting characters and as the story progresses we're going to see more and more of them. It's a dream team. I wish I could talk about more about them. It's exciting as hell.”

Remender is a long time X-Men fan so the chance to work with the characters involved was a dream come true for the writer. “I read the X-titles pretty damn religiously from about 1984 -- I believe the story with the Dire Wraiths was my first issue -- all the way up till the time I moved to San Francisco in 1999 . I was living in a very expensive city and was a struggling writer/artist and a teacher at the time, so I didn't have the funds for comic books. Now that I'm going to be one of the X-writers, I have the opportunity to really dig in and investigate what's going on, and I've been able to read a ton of the great recent stuff. Finally got to read Grant Morrison’s entire run in one sitting. It’s a terrific inspiration.”

Since its first incarnation, X-Force has always been a team responsible for taking on some of the dirtier jobs in the X-Universe. That gritty nature will continue in “New X-Force,” which makes the book's cast of characters even more compelling to Remender. “Lately I'm drawn to hard-boiled characters. Call it a phase. So with 'New X-Force' there is a slightly edgier tone to the series than, say, 'Uncanny X-Men.' But I think at the same time people are going to see that it's definitely going to be more tempered than in previous incarnations. The underlying theme for our band of characters is redemption,” the writer stated. “ People will understand that when they see who the team is and what they've been through in the 'Second Coming' crossover. I don't want to retread anybody's steps and one thing that I always responded to was the family aspect of the X-Universe. It seems like even the band of characters who have taken on the unpleasant assignments in order to protect the rest of the family should still echo that. X-Force should have an even tighter bond given what they must do. So family's been the focus of a lot of what I'm writing.”

Out of all the X-Men, no one has done more dirty jobs for the good of the larger family of mutantkind than Wolverine, and Remender is happy for the character to play a prominent role in “New X-Force.”

“I've always thought the great thing about Wolverine is that he probably should have ended up being a bad guy, but he fights against that animalistic nature and all of the things that have been done to him,” Remender remarked. “He's endured a ton of mind altering bullshit and has decades and decades of blood on his hands, but at his core is a person that is struggling to maintain nobility and a person still trying to fight a beast that has grown inside of him and hold on to his humanity. He does his best to aim that beast at things that he deems to be evil. So for me that's always a fascinating juxtaposition

“One of the themes of 'New X-Force' will be that duality of character. We have a lot of characters on the team who are the same in that sense. They have an inherent duality, people who very much want to do good and make the world a better place, but at the same time there is blood on their hands and they find themselves at cross purposes,” Remender continued. “This is a family of X-characters who at one point or another have all had to kill for the common good. I think what's really important to them beyond continuing to help mutants survive is to have a life worth fighting for. Survival just isn't enough. These aren't characters who are going to go out and happily do murder. Plus, there are voices of dissent within the team. I like the idea of having the characters put forth the debate about what they do and that it's not so simple.”

The first arc of “New X-Force” is about the team coming together to engage Apocalypse and his followers in a global game of chess. “I like the idea that Apocalypse is a master manipulator. I think one of the focal points in this series and things that will be coming up is the game of chess that Apocalypse is playing with these characters,” Remender explained. “And the character who discovers that Apocalypse has returned also uncovers the fact that Clan Akkaba is entrenched in four big bases and ready to bring about the Age of Apocalypse. Nobody on X-Force knows how far-reaching the Clan's grasp is. Things are very bad and the plans are way further along than they thought. So they're forced to kill Apocalypse. X-Force is defunct, shouldn’t exist. The Four Horsemen could be anyone. So they can't tell anybody else what they're doing. There's definitely a feeling of paranoia in the first story arc.”

In addition to the action and the intrigue, the initial arc of “New X-Force” will also feature some mysterious elements. “On the surface level this may look like another story of an X-Villain putting his forces together and preparing his rise to power, but there's a lot more involved. Later, when we start to see what's really going on, it's going to be wild. There's a lot under the surface,” Remender explained. “People who read 'Fear Agent’ know that I like to seed things early and have pay off arcs later. So there are under currents going the whole time and thing are slowly building. There will be a lot of fun pay offs, ratcheting up the tension, tossing X-Force from frying pan to bigger frying pan then into the sun.”

Remender's long term plans for “New X-Force” call for his characters to diversify and greatly expand their rogues’ gallery. “The first arc is obviously focused on Apocalypse and these Four Horsemen, we'll see whether or not that's resolved or becomes something that plays out across my tenure on the book,” the writer said. “For the second arc, we have plans for things that aren't necessarily associated with the X-Universe. The threats in this book don’t have to be X-centric. (See what I did there?) It won't be like, 'Okay, now we're doing Apocalypse again. Or here's Mister Sinister coming back. And now it's time for the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants again.' Those are great villains. They're perfect for these characters, but there's a whole world out there, and as fans of my work on 'Punisher' know, I like to put peanut butter and chocolate together. I like the idea that X-Force will be drawn into things involving all aspects of the Marvel Universe.”

One of the reasons Remender feels so comfortable throwing together various elements in “New X-Force” is his collaborator, Jerome Opeña. “When you get an assignment like 'New X-Force,' your first instinct is 'Yay!' And your second instinct is, 'Oh shit! That's pretty big! There are a lot of people who are going to read that!' As soon as Jerome signed on to join me on this book, all fear went out the window. The stuff that we have planned is really exciting, and Jerome’s pages are next generation amazing,” Remender stated. “We've been working together for like five years now and Jerome is one of those guys where their pages come in and I just go through them and spend an evening cutting dialogue. I trim things down to the bare essentials because the art does everything for you. You don't need to paint any more of a picture. Now the art does it.”

“New X-Force” is Remender's highest profile Marvel assignment to date and the writer is going out of his way to craft a story that pleases both hardcore fans of the X-Books and new readers. “As somebody who very religiously followed the X-Universe for 20 some years and obsessively collected everything, it was always important to me as a reader that creators who came on the books were fans of the books and knew the characters beyond just knowing what cool fights to put them in. They had to know what made them tick; this team of assassins doing these ugly jobs are complex characters and how they came to this, where they come from and why they’re here is important to explore,” Remender said. “I know a good deal about what makes them who they are and those are I'm focusing on using that past to lead to their natural futures. It's going to be a nice balance. We're going to have full throttle action and character development. Most importantly, we stay grounded with a firm sense of these characters’ humanity. So hopefully anybody who is unfamiliar with my work can at least feel settled knowing that the person at the helm is somebody who loves the characters.

“Also, I also can't stress enough how new-reader-friendly this series is. We don't rely on anyone having prior knowledge of who a character is in order to tell a story,” Remender continued. “You can read this series with no knowledge of who these characters are and I promise you, by the first five issues I will have done my job in showing you who they are and further developing them for you; showing you who they are, how their pasts connects to their presents and why it shapes them and motivates them. It will all be in there. So it's as new-reader-friendly as a book can be. 'New X-Force' isn't just for X-Men fans. It's for fans of Marvel Comics in general.”

A Era Heroica trará mudanças em toda a Marvel e até a X-Force foi afetada. O título será cancelado após Second Coming, com a saída de Kyle e Yost da revista. Em outubro, o escritor Rick Remender e o artista Jerome Opeña dão nova vida ao grupo, com New X-Force.

Com a X-Force revelada para os outros membros dos X-Men, o grupo terá uma nova perspectiva. O plot do novo título será a volta de Apocalipse e de seus seguidores, o Clã Akkaba e seus Cavaleiros – um indicativo de que a Era do Apocalipse pode começar.

Com os Cavaleiros do Apocalipse misturados na população mutante, a nova X-Force trará Wolverine liderando outros heróis (ainda não-revelados os nomes, nem se são mutantes ou não) do Universo Marvel. O tom das histórias não será tão agressivo e violento como nas outras encarnações do grupo, porque o que move agora cada membro será a redenção.

O primeiro arco traz a montagem da equipe para enfrentar a volta de Apocalipse. A descoberta de que os Cavaleiros do Apocalipse estão espalhados pela população mutante gera um clima de paranoia. Quanto aos outros arcos, Remender disse que eles não serão relacionados ao mundo mutante, mas sim ao Universo Marvel como um todo.

Acho que o mais interessante será ver os Cavaleiros incógnitos, espalhados pela comunidade fazendo a obra de Apocalipse.

Preferia que o Jason Aaron assumisse o título.

Victor Gischler fala sobre a nova série de X-Men

Spoiler:

As the Children of the Atom step into the Heroic Age, they'll have writer Victor Gischler and artist Paco Medina leading the way with a new X-MEN #1 this July launching a new ongoing series spinning out of the events of Second Coming.

"[Readers] can expect a lot of good action and a lot of good storytelling [for] the characters they know as the X-Men," says Gischler. "They're going to be going on some high-profile, high-energy missions. We're going to see the characters develop but with more focus on missions. Each arc will be an event or a mission. It's going to be a lot of fun. It's going to be pretty entertaining I think."

The opening salvo of the new series pits the newly re-formed team against the bloodsucking undead of the Marvel Universe, a group the X-Men has some dark history with.
"It's going to be a nice fresh look at vampires," promises Gischler. "I think people are going to be pretty impressed."

While the writer says the new series borrows a slice of concepts from the past, it certainly won't be a complete return to the old days. Instead, it sets up the idea of the X-Men in the new Heroic Age-the X-Men of tomorrow. But who will comprise that team?

"There are going to be some characters that are going to be some lynchpin, popular characters," says the writer. "But we also want to bring in some faces we haven't seen. Who have we seen plenty of? Who do we want to see more of? And who do we always want to see because they're popular?"

Although some characters will almost certainly appear-don't be surprised to see some claws in the mix-many less familiar names have been thrown in for consideration.
"We got a lot of mutants auditioning for the part," teases Gischler. "But for the first arc, it's going to be kind of wide open. It's going to be a big event. It's going to be a lot of fun. It's sort of come one, come all X-Men. After the first arc, we're going to narrow it to a core four or five characters that are in the cast month-to-month. And also maybe rotate in some surprise faces that people don't normally see in an X-Men book."

A huge fan of the Chris Claremont era of X-Men growing up, Gischler admits that he fell out of comics after entering college. However, a few years ago, the author got back into the habit and began catching himself up on his favorite band of merry mutants. Now being able to contribute creatively to the same team he grew up reading provides an almost inexpressible delight for the writer.

"I was a huge X-Men fan for a long, long time-my memories are very positive," he recalls. "Now I'm having the thrill of rediscovering the characters and the stories and everything. What [writer] Matt Fraction is doing [on UNCANNY X-MEN] is awesome. I'm not the first person to think that by any means. It's a real delight having read them as a teenager and now being asked to participate in that and have a part in it."

Um novo título de X-Men surge com Second Coming. Chamado apenas de X-Men, a revista terá roteiros de Victor Gischler e arte de Paco Medina, ambos vindos de Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth, que se encerra nos próximos meses.

X-Men estreia em julho e será focada em missões, não apenas em personagens. Cada arco trará uma missão específica e o primeiro é o já esperado confronto com vampiros.

Gischlen garantiu que personagens nunca antes vistos aparecerão nas primeiras edições. No primeiro arco, praticamente todos os X-Men darão as caras, mas, a partir de então, o elenco será focado em quatro ou cinco personagens por arco.

O autor é fã declarado dos X-Men, principalmente do trabalho de Chris Claremont. Atualmente, ele só tem elogios para a passagem de Matt Fraction em Uncanny.

Aaron fala sobre a nova série de Wolverine:

Spoiler:

IGN Comics: Jason, this is more of a relaunch than a "new series" per se, but should readers expect the focus of Wolverine to change with its new first issue? Are you looking at the series in a different light in any respect?

Jason Aaron: I think the only way the focus will change is that this is a bigger story and overall will be a bigger book than what I've been doing. The supporting characters I set up in Weapon X will carry over, but I'll also be expanding Logan's supporting cast and bringing back some of his past enemies. So the series overall will be a mix of the old and the new, and always in a way that's new-reader friendly.

IGN Comics: It seems Wolverine is going to hell. What can you tell us about this new story direction? Is he actually dead, or is there something more unusual afoot?

Aaron: When the story opens, Wolverine's soul is trapped in hell while his body is possessed by demons, running around on earth, slicing and dicing at will. Initially it's a mystery as to how this happened and who's responsible. That's something I'll be filling in as we go along.

In this first arc, Logan's challenge will be to not only endure the unimaginable torture and suffering that's being inflicted on him by Satan and his demons, but also to fend off all his old dead enemies who've been stewing in hell, just waiting to get a piece of him. They'll be lots of familiar faces popping up in this arc, some enemies, some old allies as well. Some of them fans will be expecting to see, but others may come as a surprise.

We'll also see Logan's allies among the living having to fend off attacks by the mysterious group responsible for Logan's predicament. This group doesn't just want to see Logan suffer. They also want to lash out at his friends as well. And then we have Logan's new girlfriend, Melita, trying to find someone to help exorcise the demons from Logan's body and along the way she finds a most unexpected ally.

IGN Comics: Will you more or less continue where you're leaving off with Weapon X, picking up on threads established in that series? Will we see more of Wolverine's girlfriend, for example?

Aaron: Yes, she will continue to be a big part of the series. She will not be getting killed off, like most all of Logan's previous love interests. We've seen time and again how Logan deals with the death of one of his lovers. I wanna see how he deals with a real relationship for a while. The new villains I introduced in Weapon Xwill also be re-appearing down the road in this new series.

IGN Comics: Extending off the thread of his girlfriend, how much of a focus will you be placing on finding a supporting cast for Wolverine? Will we see a lot of interaction with the X-Men or do you plan on shying away from that element as much as you can?

Aaron: We should see quite a bit more interaction between Wolverine and the X-Men around the first of next year. Matt Fraction and I are already talking about that. But overall, this solo series will be about all the different aspects of Wolverine, not just his role as mutant hero. I want to continue to change things up from arc to arc, so we'll see a real variety of guest stars and supporting characters and villains, all in stories that run the gamut of different genres.

IGN Comics: Just to clarify, is this current Deathlok arc the last for Weapon X or do you have a few more issues ready and waiting?

Aaron: There's a stand-alone issue right after the Deathlok arc ties in a bit to the big Second Coming story going on in the X-books right now and also helps set the stage for Wolverine #1.

IGN Comics: Through your Weapon X run, and even in some of the stories you did for the old Wolverine series (and Spider-Man/Wolverine), we've seen you lean away from focusing on Wolverine's traditional rogues. With this new series, will that change? Do you simply not find his rogues that engaging for your tastes as a writer? Do you think they are overexposed?

Aaron: For the past two years, I've just been looking to inject some new, accessible villains into the mix, and I'll continue to do that, but now I'm also ready to start using some of those big guns as well, so this series will feature a mix of the old and new, including new takes on old characters.

IGN Comics: Recent issues of Weapon X have hinted that Wolverine's recent battles with Mystique and Doctor Rot aren't over yet. Will this series be the one where fans can see these rivalries continue?

Aaron: Yes. And look no further than WOLVERINE #1 for the return of Mystique. She plays a big part in this first arc.

IGN Comics: Wolverine will have his extended family around in the Daken and X-23 titles. Can we expect a lot of crossover or coordination between those titles? Any integration planned in the immediate future?

Aaron: We don't have another crossover planned beyond this first story, but I think you'll always see the books connect together in smaller ways.

IGN Comics: Is there anything else you'd like to add regarding the Wolverine relaunch?

Aaron: I'm having more fun than probably any sane person should mapping out the landscape of hell and setting it up as a place with a real geography. Basically, think of it as the biggest, most over-crowded prison you could possibly imagine, filled with history's worst sinners and reprobates. And now plop Logan down into the middle of it. If you like the sound of that, then don't miss Wolverine #1.

Durante a C2E2, convenção de quadrinhos que acontece em Chicago, foi confirmado o relançamento da revista de Wolverine, em substituição de Weapon X.

Jason Aaron continua nos roteiros e garantiu que aproveitará ideias e personagens desenvolvidos em Weapon X nesse novo trabalho, como a nova namorada de Logan, Melita. Já no primeiro arco, a alma de Wolverine está no Inferno, enquanto seu corpo está possuído por demônios. No Inferno, Logan precisará encarar seus inimigos mortos, assim como antigos aliados.

O novo título estreia após a conclusão do arco com os Deathlok e de uma edição final, que tem interligação com Second Coming. Durante a série, Wolverine se envolverá mais com os X-Men e, por isso, Aaron está em maior contato com Matt Fraction. Além disso, as histórias procurarão abordar Logan apenas não de um viés de mutante herói.

Aaron também afirmou que ele continuará a criar mais personagens para a galeria infindável de vilões do canadense. Contudo, alguns antigos rivais também aparecerão no título, como Mística, que estará no primeiro arco.

Não há nenhum crossover planejado com os dois outros títulos da “família”, o de Daken e o recém-criado de X-23. Mesmo assim, há alguns pontos em comum entre todos eles.

Fiquei extremamente satisfeito com o futuro da franquia dos Vingadores após a C2E2, mas extremamente desapontado com o dos X-Men. Eu tenho medo pelos mutantes.

Way fala sobre Daken:Dark Wolverine

Spoiler:

A new Heroic Age is about to begin, and when it does, readers will get a chance to see their favorite costumed champions back on top of the Marvel Universe. However, that doesn't mean that there won't be any room to root for the bad guy though. In their current "Dark Wolverine" series, writers Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu and artist Giueseppe Camuncoli done exactly that, with fans pulling for Wolverine's villainous son Daken, and this September, they'll continue their protagonist's adventures when the book is relaunched with a new #1 issue as "Daken: Dark Wolverine." CBR News spoke with with Way about the series, which was announced Sunday at the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo.

Daken's solo exploits began in 2009 when the last volume of "Wolverine" morphed into "Dark Wolverine," but maintained the previous series' numbering. "'Dark Wolverine' #1 was actually 'Wolverine' #75, so it does feel nice to have an actual #1 issue. It gives that feeling of legacy; that the character is putting down roots in the real world," Way told CBR News. "Retailers are going to dig it, obviously, because they get a first issue and a there's a lot of stuff out there to sell this first issue. We're not coming in cold. You hardly ever get an opportunity like this, where you have so much build up towards the launch of your series. We got a years worth of stories to clear the path for this new book, and I think we're going to roll in with as big a story as we can. We're going to keep Daken right in the middle of the Marvel Universe. It's the same M.O. Just different title."

When "Daken" begins, the title character may have changed tactics, he's no longer wearing his father's old costume and pretending to be him, but his goal is still the same: ultimate power over the Marvel Universe. "It's because he thinks he's the only person worthy of wielding any power. It's really his ego, and like anyone else, that ego is always underwritten by massive insecurity. It's what pushes the ego. In his mind, the more power he has, the less anyone else does. It's like there's some finite amount and he's trying to suck it all up so no one else can have any," Way explained. "You also have to look at Daken's background. He's essentially an orphan. So this is a guy who's tried to build something. He comes from a kind of void and he's trying to establish something huge. He wants something that is his and sticks around. He wants empire."

The story in "Daken" #1 is informed by the events in September's "Wolverine" #1, which finds the soul of Daken's father trapped in Hell and his body possessed by a malevolent force. "Daken's new series doesn't spin out of 'Wolverine' #1, but now, with the launch of our book and 'X-23,' there is an X-Men line of books, and then there's kind of a sub category to that line, which is Wolverine," Way stated. "So in order to keep all that synergistic energy going, we acknowledge what is happening in the new Wolverine book. It's not a cross over - it's more of an acknowledgment of what is going on in the Wolverine sphere of influence.

"Daken had a good time running around dressed up as Wolverine and throwing dirt on his father's legacy. So why would he not enjoy the fact that some disembodied soul has taken over Wolverine's body and is running around out there in the world wreaking havoc? His opportunistic nature won't allow him to just sit by and watch, as enjoyable as it is," Way continued. "So Daken is going to seize this opportunity and use it for his own ends. Because when someone as dangerous as Wolverine, whether it's Wolverine's soul or not, is after people, they tend to look for help and they're not all that discriminating in where they get it. And Daken loves coming upon people with their hand out who need something."

While the fate of Daken's father is addressed in the series' initial arc, the story is more about how the title character will operate during the "Heroic Age." "In our first story, Daken is now completely out in the world as Daken. He's not Wolverine. He's not an Avenger. He doesn't have the umbrella over him that Norman Osborn provided. He has to be careful in what he does and who knows about it," Way said. "So he's building a foundation, and the first thing he needs to do is get someone who he can operate behind. He needs someone who can kind of cast a shadow that he can operate in, and with the dawn of the Heroic Age, a lot of people that we know as villains and bad guys are going into hiding. Daken is a pretty crafty guy, though, so if he can't find the right guy, he might just make one."

Intrigue, manipulation and violence will continue to be Daken's primary tools in his new series, and like his father, he'll employ these instruments in a variety of situations. "It will remain a dark book for sure ,and there will be elements of horror and a ton of action because that's something that both Marjorie and I want to see more of," Way revealed. "We'll pick our spots, but I'd like to see more of Daken really out there mixing it up and physically engaging the Marvel Universe. A smart fighter picks the venue, though. So that's what he's constantly doing. Romulus, who was Daken's instructor in almost everything, taught him that the first thing to do with an opponent is to seal them off, whether that's by discrediting them or by other means. You isolate them and then you exploit them."

"Daken: Dark Wolverine" is the story of a man who wants nothing more than to be the absolute ruler of the Marvel Universe, so Way and Liu's plans for the series call for their protagonist to match wits with anyone who stands in his way, be they hero or villain. "Daken loves going up against characters who are 100 percent good or 100 percent bad. They're easy to confuse. You just do something really good when you're fighting that type of hero and really bad when you're up against those kind of villains. They can't comprehend that. It just makes them stand still, and while they're trying to figure it out and wrap their mind around it, they give up any advantage they may have had," Way said. "The foils that I think work best story wise are the compromised characters. The people who've kind of gone the rocky road, whether it's up or down, because there's always something they have that can be exploited, but there's also always something that makes them fight back and not just lay down. Moonstone is a good example. I liked their relationship a lot.

"There are a couple of other characters that I could mention, but we've got plans for them, and there's one character in particular that we've put our finger that we want to bring into our story," Way continued. "It was something I was pushing for, and everybody kind of paused when I brought it up at a story conference. They were like, 'That seems kind of big,' and I said, 'That's how we have to look forward in building this series.' Daken has big goals and we need to have characters to populate the book that kind of fit that. So I can say that you're going to see some really big characters in this book. It will definitely make some waves. Characters like Doctor Doom have come up in a couple of conversations ,and we're also bringing in some stuff from 'Dark Wolverine,' because the Fantastic Four already owe him a favor that hasn't come due yet. So you're going to be seeing that. We've got some very big plans."


Uma das mudanças anunciadas na C2E2, no último domingo, foi a transformação da revista Dark Wolverine em Daken:Dark Wolverine, consolidando o título focado no filho de Logan. O título volta ao número #1 a partir do mês de setembro, continuando o desenvolvimento das histórias que começou em Dark Wolverine #75 (quando a revista de Wolverine passou a ganhar o adjetivo "Dark" e se focar nas aventuras de Daken).

Em sua nova série, Daken não está mais usando o uniforme de seu pai e nem fingindo mais que é Wolverine. Seu objetivo agora é conquistar mais poder dentro do Universo Marvel, a fim de contentar seu ego. Para ele, o mundo é um jogo de soma-zero e, para que ele vença, os outros precisam perder.

O enredo de Daken #1 levará em conta o que acontece simultaneamente em Wolverine #1, isto é, que o corpo de Logan esteja tomado por demônios e sua alma esteja no inferno. Way mostra que, com os lançamentos de três novos títulos simultâneos (X-23 também ganha uma série própria), estreia uma nova subcategoria dentro das revistas mutantes – a linha relacionada a Wolverine. Por isso, tudo o que acontece em uma das novas revistas poderá ser sentido nas demais – não como um crossover, mas como efeitos sobre cada um dos personagens-título.

A revista de Daken será focada no impacto da Era Heróica para o personagem. Ele não é mais Wolverine, nem um Vingador, nem está sob a proteção de Norman Osborn. Daken está sozinho e precisa ter muito cuidado nos passos que dará. Dessa forma, o leitor pode esperar intriga, manipulação e violência como as principais características que continuarão a guiar Daken.

Way preferiu não expor quais outros personagens terão destaque no título, mas garantiu que Daken não faz distinção entre querer enfrentar heróis e vilões em sua jornada. As participações especiais incluirão figuras importantes e o roteiro trará grandes polêmicas.

Mais uma reportagem sobre Aaron e o novo título de Wolverine

Spoiler:

Wolverine's mutant healing factor makes him extremely hard to kill, so his foes are often forced to come up with different and inventive ways to subdue him. Imprisoning him is always an option, but Wolverine is also armed with a set of razor sharp adamantium claws, which means there are few prisons in the Marvel Universe that he couldn't fight or claw his way out of. But could even Wolverine escape from Hell? This September readers will find out when writer Jason Aaron and artist Renato Guedes launch the next volume of Marvel Comics' "Wolverine" series. CBR News spoke with Aaron about the project, which kicks off in September with "Wolverine" #1 and was announced on Sunday at the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo.

Aaron is no stranger to the world of Wolverine, having penned multiple stories featuring the adamantium enhanced X-Man, including the 2008 storyline "Get Mystique," and the miniseries "Wolverine: Manifest Destiny," which also launched in '08. In 2009, Aaron began writing the ongoing series "Wolverine: Weapon X," which will wrap up this summer. Fans need not worry, though, as many of the elements they loved about the book will also be part of the new volume of "Wolverine."

"I'll still be mixing it up from arc to arc, doing different genres, different kinds of Wolverine stories, and we'll see stand-alone issues sprinkled in here and there. So in that sense, the book will have the same sort of structure as 'Weapon X.' Other elements will carry over as well, like Melita, the girlfriend I introduced for Logan. She'll continue to be a big part of the story, beginning with this first arc. And the new villains I introduced in "Weapon X,' like the Adamantium Men and Doctor Rot, their stories still aren't finished. Those are characters who will return," Aaron told CBR News. "I think the main difference between 'Wolverine' and 'Weapon X,' especially with this first story arc, is that this is a bigger book and a bigger story. With 'Weapon X,' I wanted to come in and inject a few new ideas into Wolverine's rogues gallery, so I didn't use any established villains. That also helped boil things down so they were very new reader friendly and continuity free. We kick this series off with Wolverine going to Hell, and that's a much bigger story than any of the Wolverine tales I've ever done. It's bigger in terms of size, impact and who all is involved. Still, even though lots of characters from Wolverine's past will be popping up in this story, more characters than I've probably ever used in any story before, like with everything else I do, I'll still be trying to boil things down to make them accessible to new readers."

"Wolverine" #1 begins in media res, with the title character already locked away in his infernal prison. "When the story opens, Wolverine's soul is trapped in Hell and his body is possessed by demons, running around on Earth causing havoc," Aaron explained. "As to how this happened and who did it? That's a mystery for now. We just know that there's a group out there that we've never seen before, that for some reason has it in for Wolverine in a very big way. They've managed to pull this off, to trap him in Hell, to have him tormented by Satan and his hordes of demons. And they've also got a list of his friends and allies, and they're coming after them as well, taking some of them off the board, permanent-like. They're doing everything they can to ruin Logan's life in every way possible. They want to make him suffer in as many ways as they possibly can."

The identity of the group behind Logan's predicament may be a mystery, but Aaron will also be throwing plenty of familiar obstacles and adversaries at his protagonist in his inaugural "Wolverine" arc. "The group that trapped Logan in Hell has operatives working for them; some new characters and some old," Aaron revealed. "Beyond that, think of Hell as the largest, most over-crowded prison you could possibly imagine, and think of Wolverine popping up there one day. He's going to create a bit of a stir, because over the course of his 100 plus years of life ,he's killed a lot of people. A whole lot. So there are going to be a lot of folks in Hell itching to get a piece of him. Logan has lots of dead enemies; from the God knows how many Hand ninjas, Nazis and Hydra agents he's killed over the years, to a few bigger and more recognizable characters. There'll be the characters fans will probably be expecting to see, but also a couple that'll be a bit of a surprise. And it's not just his enemies. He has a few dead allies who'll be showing up as well. Can I go ahead and spoil one? Old-school Alpha Flight fans (of which I am one) might be interested."

Logan's associates in the land of the living will also play roles in Aaron's initial "Wolverine" arc. "We'll see characters like Silver Samurai, Yukio and Maverick. And Mystique plays a big part in this arc, though not necessarily in the way you might expect," Aaron remarked. "In addition to the main story, this first arc will also feature back-up stories, each one focusing on a different supporting character from Logan's life, some old, some all-new. So we'll see a lot of Wolverine's associates as they get pulled into this story. It's not just about setting up these characters for a fight scene. Overall, it's about fleshing out Wolverine's world and the people he surrounds himself with. A lot of these characters will continue to be part of the book. Also, within those back-ups, I'll be teasing some of the stories that are coming up in this series, after 'Wolverine Goes to Hell.'"

Logan's relationships with his old allies and enemies is an important part of Aaron's first story, but the writer wanted to make sure the tale was also understandable to new fans. "When I use old characters and old idea points, I always want to do so in a way that makes them friendly to new readers," Aaron stated. "So if 'Wolverine' #1 is the first Wolverine book you've ever read, you won't be lost. You don't have to know Wolverine's long standing complicated relationship with this character or that character. It's all about boiling all that down, so that it's easily digestible."

The first arc in the new volume of "Wolverine" is thematically part of the new "Heroic Age" of the Marvel Universe, though it may not seem so at first glance. "The Heroic Age is about the heroes being back in charge and everything looking rosy, right? So somebody might ask, 'Well how does Wolverine going to Hell fit in with any of that? How is that a 'Heroic Age' story at all?" Aaron remarked. "One of the things I've been building up to in all of the Wolverine stories that I've done is that Wolverine has been finding faith and a sense of hope. He was a character always portrayed as an atheist or an agnostic, but I've shown in sprinklings here and there that he's starting to get glimmers of faith. He's started to believe. In the last issue of the 'Weapon X' series leading into this, we really start to see that faith take shape. When a man like Logan, who has done terrible things over the course of his life, starts to find a sense of faith and hope, somebody is usually going to step up and test it. In some ways, that's what this story is; Logan's sense of hope being tested in a big way."

Aaron's collaborator on "Wolverine," Brazilian artist Renato Guedes, is best know for his recent work on DC Comics' Superman family of titles, but Aaron is excited to see what he can do in Marvel's sandbox. "I'm super-excited to have Renato on board. He's got a style that I think is going to really pop on a story like this. In particular, I have a lot of ideas on how we're going to portray Hell. Usually it's just a big cave with some smoke and a few fires burning here and there. But the Hell that Renato and I do will have a real geography to it, a real sense of place, in an utterly warped and disturbing sort of way."

By ant measurement, Wolverine trapped in Hell is a big story, and Aaron couldn't reveal just how much time his protagonist will spend in the nether realm, but readers can expect this story to have a definite impact on future arcs of the series and the other ongoing books in the Wolverine line: "Daken: Dark Wolverine" and "X-23." "You don't have to read any one of these books to enjoy the other," Aaron explained. "It's not that in-depth of a crossover. But it's a story that is so big that it had to affect the Wolverine world in a big way, and these books are kind of the Wolverine family of titles now. So this one event has ramifications for all of these books. It also helps set up the status quo of how these characters relate to Wolverine."

Wolverine's journey to Hell is just the first in a series of big stories that Aaron has planned for the adamantium enhanced X-Man. "In these first five issues we'll see my framework for a few years worth of Wolverine stories; stuff that I'm really excited about," Aaron said. "Obviously, it's great to have Wolverine back in a book with that 'Wolverine' title, just to say, 'Here, this is the main Wolverine book.' 'Weapon X' will be wrapping up. 'Wolverine Origins' is pretty close to wrapping up. So this will be the Wolverine solo title. The chance to get to kick all that off is a huge thrill. As I've said all along, I have a lot of Wolverine stories in me that I want to tell. I've gotten to do some, and there's still quite a bit more that I'm going to get to. I'm hoping to have a nice, long and hopefully memorable run on the character."

E uma entrevista com Victor Gischler sobre o novo título X-Men:

Spoiler:

CBR News: It seems like these days the X-Office really wants to make sure that each book in the X-Men line is very unique and distinct. So what separates this new series from other books in the line like "Uncanny X-Men?"

Victor Gischler: Well there is going to be some overlap in the sense that the characters that I'll be using are characters from other X-Men books. We're not inventing a whole bunch of new mutants, but the storyline is something that is a very different from the other books in the line. It's the right kind of X-Men team doing the right kind of thing for this new era that the Marvel Universe is entering.

From the information we've received, it sounds like the kind of things this group of X-Men will be doing, at least initially, is fighting vampires. So how would you describe the mandate of the team in "X-Men?" Are they strictly concerned with the supernatural?

This new monthly is not a supernatural-flavored X-Men title – it's a title that will firmly integrate the X-Men in the Marvel Universe, boasting new team-members from across the Marvel Universe as the X-Men contend with a host of threats -- including some of Marvel's most popular super-villains. That said, the first arc will pit mutants against another society of super-powered outcasts: vampires. The X-Men have some history with Dracula. It's about to come back and haunt them when San Francisco is invaded by a horde of vampires led by a... let's just say, a very enigmatic leader with a diabolical plan. What do these vampires want? Read and find out.

"X-Men" will feature an all-mutant cast, but it will be similar in feel to a book like "Avengers" because it stars a team concerned first and foremost with saving the world?

That's definitely one way you could describe the book. I hate to sound so vague, but I don't want to spoil things like "Second Coming" or what comes after it, but I can say this series will be big and I'm psyched about it.

Marvel recently revealed some teaser images featuring possible cast members for "X-Men." Can we talk about the characters you'll be using? Will "X-Men" feature big name characters? Lesser known fan favorites? Or both?

My desire is that the cast of characters will be a combination of both big name and lesser known characters. I think we'll see a wider cast of characters for the first arc, while we're getting situated. Then the following arcs will kind of narrow things down to a core cast. I don't want to say that we're holding auditions for the first arc, but it almost is like that. We've got the whole team and everybody is available for that first arc. Then in following stories we kind of whittle things down to the people we see every issue.

Plus, since the book is a part of the X-Men line, there's a good chance that we'll see characters rotate in and out from story to story. So new faces might come and go, but that will be along side the core cast that we see every month.

We know in your inaugural X-Men story you're pitting your team against the undead, but what kinds of obstacles and adversaries can we expect in the book moving forward? Which villains are you interested in using in this series?

I think it's all up for grabs. This X-Men team is going to be the sort of team that reacts to whatever is out there. There's been a lot of talk about what kinds of villains they'll engage, but there's also the practicality of who is available. So we're figuring out how that will all work. I'm just getting comfortable with this first arc. I just started scripting. So it's hard to look beyond the first six issues.

As a comics writer you're probably best known for your work on two of Marvel's more humorous titles: "Deadpool: Merc With a Mouth" and "The Deadpool Corps." What can you tell us about the tone of the “X-Men” series? Will things be humorous? Serious? Or sort of a balance between the two?

It's a serious book. It's not like "Merc With a Mouth." There is comic relief here and there, as we've seen in other X-Men titles, but the main thrust is not comedy. It's not meant to be over the top, and right now I feel that things are coming along pretty well.

What can readers expect from the art work of your "X-Men" collaborator, Paco Medina?

Paco Medina and I worked together on “Prelude to the Deadpool Corps” #4. He did a great job on that, so I'm confident he'll do a great job on this. He also drew the X-Men in one of Daniel Way's recent “Deadpool” stories and they looked fantastic. So I think he's a slam dunk.

"X-Men" is your biggest comics assignment to date. Now that the project has been officially announced and is set to debut in just a few months, how do you feel?

I feel both great and a little nervous. There are a lot of X-Men devotees out there and I'm respectful of the fact that they expect a certain level of quality. So I'm focusing on doing the best job that I can for those readers.

Again, I hate to be so vague. If we were to talk a couple of months from now I think I'd have a lot more to say, but I'm just sort of getting into the groove right now and I want to get a couple issues under my belt and get more comfortable with things. Plus I don't want to spoil any surprises.

Reportagem do site da Marvel sobre Daken: Dark Wolverine:

Spoiler:

Wolverine's progeny takes another step towards escaping his father's shadow this September in DAKEN: DARK WOLVERINE #1, bringing writers Marjorie Liu and Daniel Way as well as artist Giuseppe Camuncoli with him.

A new title might mean new twists, but Daken will not be a kinder, gentler anti-hero.

"Daken, for the most part, is fixated on himself," says Way. No changes in his personality, but definitely a change in status. Things really go sideways for him during the 'Reckoning' crossover with [DARK WOLVERINE and WOLVERINE: ORIGINS]."

For the creative team, preserving that persona represents a key part of what draws them to the character.

"It's cheesy to say, but Daken is one of those characters that you love to hate," editor Jeanine Schaefer admits. "And one of those characters, maybe, that you read half-waiting for the other shoe to drop-there must be some humanity in him, there must be a redemption coming. And that's the ride; will that redemptive moment ever come? Do I love him or do I hate him? You can't help but to keep reading!"

For Way, on the other hand, the versatility offered by Daken keeps him committed to chronicling his creation's various misdeeds.

"Writing a character with no moral center makes it possible to tell really any kind of story, and to take that story in almost any direction," the writer notes. "Plus, he's just so damned mean."

The potential represented by Daken's volatility inspires artist Camuncoli.

"Since Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu started shining major light on Daken's psyche and personality, readers [have gotten] to learn a lot of things [about] him, and [have gotten] a few surprises along the way," he explains. "Aside from the fact that the dude is a badass, it's his unpredictability that excites me, and makes for endless possibilities and scenarios."

Camuncoli will continue to employ the same approach to Daken and his world that he has been honing on DARK WOLVERINE, while always looking to keep on refining that feel.

"My approach will definitely resonate with what Daken will have to go through during the first issues of his new book," the artist says. "[The artistic team] will probably keep on the same pace as before, since that really worked and definitely suited Daken the most. Dark and twisted-and dangerous."

So where will Daken go and who will he meet in these new adventures? Only time and his writers will tell, but they're not feeling too forthcoming quite yet.

"Not to sound dirty or anything, but Daken gets around," Way teases. "Who might he encounter? Anyone and everyone in the Marvel Universe."

Reportagem sobre a nova X-Force:

Spoiler:

Where there's light, there's also darkness, it's one of those inevitable facts of life. So, as the new Heroic Age spreads across the Marvel Universe, expect plenty of characters to still keep to the shadows, specifically the stars of Rick Remender and Jerome Opeña's NEW X-FORCE.

"They have no business operating," Remender says of the new Wolverine-lead team. "They should be defunct. They're breaking some rules by reforming, breaking some trust. They also have a different outlook on how they proceed with the missions and who knows about the missions. There is a co-captain system set up at first to ensure no one person has control over such a lethal force. There are members of the team who want to do the right thing but have a difficult time with the current modus operandi. However, the deliberation is cut short as the threat they are facing is revealed to be the return of Apocalypse."

The new X-Force team has a network of people looking out for Apocalypse's rise and could be faced with the moral quandary of being able to execute the immortal villain as an infant.

"One of the members of the team has had operatives hunting for signs of the return of En Sabah Nur for years," Remender shares. "We open as the operative discovers what he's been seeking. Turns out when the rest of the world is celebrating the defeat of a tyrant, humanity entering a new 'Heroic Age' is the first big signpost of the Age of Apocalypse. X-Force is reformed with one objective: kill Apocalypse. Their existence must be kept a total secret as no one knows who the new Four Horsemen are, or if the X-Men have been infiltrated already. No one can be trusted. The tension is high and the threat level couldn't be greater."

Speaking of Apocalypse, Remender studied the character's long history dating back to his first appearance in 1986's X-FACTOR #5 in preparation for this story.

"I take what I like and focus in, building on the better ideas with my own take on the character's natural next step, natural motivation in response to the current world stage," he explains. "I think the character has been handled well throughout the years, but I'm personally a big fan of the Louise and Walt Simonson version [from the original X-FACTOR series]. But I've read all of his appearances and have a list of the points that seem the strongest, the things I'll be focusing on. We've also developed a lot of new stuff around past continuity, fleshing out concepts that were hinted at or mentioned, [like] a certain society [returning] in a new form. It's important to be mindful of [whom] the character is and what he has done but not allow it to hinder creativity. With these new pages and designs Jerome Opeña is sending in I feel confident we've done that."

With such a dark and secretive missions, Remender promises that his new group will still sport the black-themed duds fans might be familiar with from the current X-FORCE.

"It defines their purpose a bit, reminds them of the business at hand," says the writer of the darker outfits. "These are heroes, people who want to see their actions make the world a better place. However, they're also stained. A band that has been forced to make hard choices in the past, choices that called for hard resolutions. They're like Johnny Cash; the men in black wear it as an external representation of the stains they've absorbed for the good of the common man, and so that other heroes can keep a squeaky clean conscience."

Série própria da X-23:

Spoiler:


Beginning this September, Wolverine's clone stands on her own in a new X-23 ongoing series from writer Marjorie Liu.

Reteaming young Laura Kinney with the writer of March's X-23 one-shot came as an easy choice for editor Jeanine Schaefer.

"There's a kind of hard-edged vulnerability to a lot of Marjorie's writing," Schaefer contends. "That and her obvious love of [X-23] made me so excited to see what she could do with an ongoing."

Liu similarly could not wait to chronicle more of Laura's adventures.

"As a writer, I can't ask for a better character," she says. "She's got incredible depth, complexity-she's had terrible things happen to her, but despite that, she's retained her compassion and dignity-balanced with stunning ruthlessness. The great thing is that in writing this ongoing, I can take X-23 on a journey that will, hopefully, advance and develop her character into something rich and interesting."

The book spins out of the events in the new WOLVERINE #1 and explores what happens to X-23 when fate calls upon her to fight for arguably the most important man in her life.

"She just wants to help [Wolverine]," Liu reveals. "He's the closest thing she has to a father, and that's a relationship she'll do just about anything to protect. Laura won't be radically changed from the girl you see in the one-shot, but she'll have new purpose, that's for sure."

While the book spotlights her solo adventures, stepping into Wolverine's choices cannot be a small order and X-23 responds by reaching out to some of the most prominent mutants of the Marvel Universe for guidance.

"I'll be using some former X-Men," Liu promises. "I don't want to mention any names quite yet, but they'll be men and women who become reluctant mentors to Laura. I'm excited about all of them."

Após de ter um one-shot por Marjorie Liu, X-23 ganha uma série própria a partir de setembro, pelas mãos da mesma escritora. A editora Jeanine Schaefer confirmou que a escolha de Liu foi natural, visto que o one-shot deixou os fãs muito interessados em como seria o trabalho da escritora em uma mensal da personagem e Marjorie consegue abordar X-23 com grande complexidade e profundidade.

A história começa a partir dos eventos de Wolverine #1, que também foi uma das novidades divulgadas no último final de semana. O primeiro arco de Wolverine trata de sua alma indo ao Inferno. Na série de X-23, os leitores conferirão a luta de Laura para salvar o homem mais importante que passou por sua vida: Logan.

Liu afirma que X-23 fará qualquer coisa para ajudar Wolverine, pois ele foi o mais próximo de um pai que ela já teve e fez de tudo para protegê-la.

A escritora também afirmou que antigos X-Men aparecerão no título e servirão como mentores para Laura. Contudo, ela preferiu não revelar nenhum nome.

Resumo do status de cada equipe após Second Coming (conforme anunciado na C2E2):

Spoiler:

At its final panel of C2E2 2010, Marvel unveiled some of its major plans for the mutant community. Some titles are ending, some are being relaunched, some will keep as they are. Since there are many alterations coming up, we thought we'd list everything we know so you can keep track.

First off is the timing of this. The X-Men entry into the Heroic Age formally kicks off in July, after the final chapter of Second Coming, the X-Men: Second Coming #2 one-shot, is released. From there, here's what you can expect.

Astonishing X-Men
Writer: Warren Ellis
Artist: Kaare Andrews
Start Date: May 2010

Not really a key element to the core X-Men franchise, the Astonishing X-Men book will continue as it always has - working within a small corner of continuity within a set of mini-series. Expect a very different vibe often unrelated to other comings and goings in the X-Men world. Marvel has expanded this concept to other books, but we only know the existence of one: Spider-Man/Wolverine. There are more, which will no doubt be announced in the next few months.

Uncanny X-Men
Writer: Matt Fraction
Artist: Whilce Portacio
Start Date: July 2010 (with Whilce)

X-Men legend Whilce Portacio will be back on the flagship X-series starting with the Heroic Age line-up. Portacio is currently only slated for one arc, putting his tenure likely somewhere through November - possibly into 2011. Marvel has not announced who will come after that arc.

X-Men
Writer: Victor Gischler
Artist: Paco Medina
Start Date: July 2010

This is the series that had the teasers featuring Spider-Man, Blade and so on. The idea here is that these characters factor into the series in two ways: this title is going to work with the larger Marvel Universe more directly that X-titles often do, and the heroes may or may not have something to do with a vampire threat the X-Men will face early on in the series. Rest assured, Spider-Man isn't joining the X-Men... yet.

X-Men Legacy
Writer: Mike Carey
Artist: Greg Land

Worry not, Mike Carey's Rogue-centric series isn't going anywhere. Marvel really hasn't said much about this one, but we know it's not going anywhere with the franchise revamp.

New Mutants
Writer: Zeb Wells
Artist: Leonard Kirk
Start Date: July 2010

With this one tied up in Second Coming we don't have much to report on other than artist Leonard Kirk, who will be joining after SC wraps up. No doubt we'll have a better idea once the crossover is done.

Wolverine #1
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Renato Guedes
Start Date: September 2010

Weapon X is wrapping up shortly after this Deathlok arc to make way for a new #1 issue under the title Wolverine. Jason Aaron is being joined former Moon Knight artist Jerome Opena for a series that will send Wolverine's soul to Hell. By the time you read this, we'll have an interview up with Aaron. You should read it.

Daken: Dark Wolverine
Writer: Daniel Way & Marjorie Liu
Artist: Giuseppe Camuncoli
Start Date: September 2010

Wolverine's former series, Dark Wolverine, is being cancelled and replaced with... Daken: Dark Wolverine. Same idea? Pretty much. Same creative team too. Really just expect this one to address how Siege and Second Coming wrap up as it continues to track the adventures of one crazy SOB.

X-23
Writer: Marjorie Liu
Artist: Unknown
Start Date: September 2010

The Wolverine family expands a bit as his female clone receives her own ongoing series. This one is about a former member of X-Force trying to find her way in life - and struggling a great deal to do it. No word on the artist... we'll see when that turns up.

New X-Force #1
Writer: Rick Remender
Artist: Jerome Opena
Start Date: October 2010

This one arrives a bit later than its counterparts, though we don't really know why. In fact we only know Wolverine is gathering a team and he's going to try and kick Apocalypse's ass. Good luck with that one, buddy.

X-Factor
Writer: Peter David
Artist: Bing Cansino

No real changes here though Peter David remarked at C2E2 that the general idea behind the title now is to make it as ubiquitous as possible. In the past, Marvel characters needing a lawyer would always turn to Matt Murdock. David wants to do the same with investigations. Need a mystery or crime solved? Call X-Factor. The next few issues are tied to Second Coming and David specifically said issue #207 is a huge, huge deal that people will be talking about. He said that if you read the book, or are interested in it, to let your retailer know to keep the orders up for #207.

- Astonishing X-Men
Escritor: Warren Ellis
Artista: Kaare Andres
Lançamento: Maio/2010
O título continuará alheio à continuidade, mas em forma de minissérie. O conceito de Astonishing se expandiu para novos títulos: o primeiro anunciado foi Homem-Aranha/Wolverine, mas outros devem ser anunciados nos próximos meses.

- Uncanny X-Men
Escritor: Matt Fraction
Artista: Whilce Portacio
Lançamento: Julho/2010
A volta de Whilce Portacio coincide com a chegada da Era Heroica para os mutantes. Por enquanto, Portacio fica por apenas um arco, que deve terminar em novembro. Ainda não foi anunciado quem o substituirá depois.

- X-Men
Escritor: Victor Gischler
Artista: Paco Medina
Lançamento: Julho/2010
Essa é a série que ganhou os últimos teasers, envolvendo Homem-Aranha, Blade e companhia, por isso fique tranquilo, pois Peter Parker não se juntará ao grupo dos mutantes. Esse título mostrará uma maior relação entre os X-Men e o restante do Universo Marvel.

- X-Men Legacy
Escritor: Mike Carey
Artista: Greg Land
Mesmo com a nova série de X-Men, Legacy continuará a ser publicada e não foram anunciadas grandes mudanças para esse título.

- New Mutants
Escritor: Zeb Wells
Artista: Leonard Kirk
Lançamento: Julho/2010
O grande anúncio ficou por conta do desenhista Leonard Kirk, que assume o título após Second Coming. Quanto ao roteiro, teremos uma ideia melhor do que acontecerá quando o crossover acabar.

- Wolverine
Escritor: Jason Aaron
Artista: Renato Guedes
Lançamento: Setembro/2010
Após o final do arco com Deathlok, Weapon X acaba e Wolverine ganha um novo título a partir da edição #1. Os roteiros ficam com Jason Aaron e os desenhos, com Jerome Opeña (Cavaleiro da Lua). A primeira aventura traz a alma de Wolverine no Inferno.

- Daken: Dark Wolverine
Escritor: Daniel Way & Marjorie Liu
Artista: Giuseppe Camuncoli
Lançamento: Setembro/2010
Dark Wolverine ganha agora um novo nome – Daken:Dark Wolverine. Tanto as ideias, quanto a equipe criativa se mantém. O que muda é reflexo de Siege e de Second Coming.

- X-23
Escritor: Marjorie Liu
Artista: Desconhecido
Lançamento: Setembro/2010
A família de Wolverine continua crescendo e sua clone ganha sua própria série mensal. A antiga integrante da X-Force está em busca de uma nova vida. O artista não foi revelado.

- New X-Force
Escritor: Rick Remender
Artista: Jerome Opeña
Lançamento: Outubro/2010
Essa revista será lançada um pouco depois das demais, mas não se sabe por que. O que se sabe é que Wolverine reunirá um novo time para enfrentar Apocalipse.

- X-Factor
Escritor: Peter David
Artista: Bing Casino
Nenhuma nova mudança foi anunciada para X-Factor. Peter David quer que o grupo se torne referência para a solução de mistérios e crimes dentro do Universo Marvel. As próximas edições são ligadas a Second Coming, mas a edição #207 será muito importante e valerá a pena esperar por ela.

Alex Alonso comenta as novidades:

Spoiler:

IGN Comics: Axel, let's set the general publishing scene for the X-Men franchise coming this July. You're bringing a few titles to a close and relaunching a few – what's on the way and what's ending?

Axel Alonso: "Second Coming" brings to a dramatic close a story that began in "Messiah CompleX," with deep roots in "House of M." When the battle is over, when the X-Men get their first glimpse of who Hope is – WHAT she is – and when they take a hard look at who's left standing, the stage is set for a new era.

IGN Comics: What's the larger strategy behind these changes? Is this in response to a changing tone in the franchise? Without spoiling Second Coming, can you give a sense of the tone fans can expect?

Alonso: I can't give away details, of course, but let's just say the X-Men will have to adapt to a new landscape in the aftermath of "Second Coming" and "Siege."

IGN Comics: Moving into this new era, will certain characters still be earmarked for certain books? Will we see more fluid rosters?

Alonso: Uncanny X-Men will be "X-Men Central" – the core title that focuses on the core cast, with secondary characters playing cameo roles, depending on the story arc. X-Men Legacy will stay focused on Rogue and the X-Youth there - and certain things are going to change for Rogue and her chargers in "Second Coming." New Mutants will sport the same roster – well, those that survive "Second Coming" – and a new artist: Leonard Kirk. This October, X-Force will re-launch with a new roster, a big problem to solve, and a new creative team. And further on the horizon, there's a new series that will surprise just about everyone. More on that soon.

IGN Comics: X-Factor, X-Men Legacy, New Mutants and Uncanny X-Men are all sticking around in this new era. Is there anything you'd like to say about the state of these books in this Heroic Age for the X-Men?

Alonso: For the past few years, the X-Men have been dealing with an avalanche of folks bent on eradicating the mutant race. "Second Coming" is the finale to all that. That's all I can say.

X-Factor just had a major shakeup with #200, so that's not going to have huge changes coming out of here. And if it ain't broke…

The cast of New Mutants will deal with some new villains that are going to scare the pants off readers. Also, series editor Nick Lowe says there'll be some kissing. So, to recap: Pantless readers and kissing, brought to you by Zeb Wells.

X-Men: Legacy is going to be dealing with some villains that we've seen before, but with ambitious goals unlike anything you've seen.

IGN Comics: I wanted to get your thoughts on the general idea for each of the new books. Let's start with X-Men #1. What role will this series play in the franchise?

Alonso: The hook that will set X-Men apart from the rest of the other X-titles will become apparent with the release of some teaser images this week. Suffice it to say, X-MEN will firmly ground X-Men in the Marvel Universe. First up is "Mutants vs. Vampires," a 6-issue story arc in which the X-Men fight a war of the species that will wrack the Marvel Universe. When a suicide bomber strikes in downtown San Francisco, it gets the immediate attention of the X-Men. But this is not your garden variety terrorist – and he's not acting alone. Vampires from around the globe are descending en masse on San Francisco, staking a claim for the patch of land the X-Men call their home. What is their agenda? Who is their mysterious leader? Read it and find out.
IGN Comics: What made Victor Gischler and Paco Medina the right creators for this series?

Alonso: Victor is a versatile writer who's earned accolades for his work on Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool Corps and Punisher MAX. He's also an "X-Head" and a vampire.

Paco did a stellar run on New X-Men a few years back and lately he's been tearing it up on Deadpool. His work on the arc where Wade tried to become an X-Man ("Want You To Want Me") was actually put him over the top. Also, Paco is a mutant.

IGN Comics: Next up would be Wolverine. Will this series change in concept or tone now that it's moving away from "Weapon X"?

Alonso: Jason Aaron has delivered a knockout high concept to drive the Wolverine re-launch. The title – "Wolverine Goes to Hell" – just hints at the scope and nuances of the story that will not only re-launch Wolverine, but also X-23 and Dark Wolverine. It's heady stuff about family business. Blood runs deep.

IGN Comics: What made Renato Guedes a good fit for Jason Aaron?

Alonso: I've been trying to get Renato to come over to Marvel for years. I finally got my wish. We wanted his Marvel debut to be an instant classic, and it will be.

IGN Comics: We have Dark Wolverine relaunching as well. What can fans expect here – is this largely about marking a good jumping on point for readers?

Alonso: Yes, it's a good jumping-on point for all three titles.

IGN Comics: X-23 is receiving her own series. We've seen a number of projects focusing solely on Laura. What made this the ideal time to do this again? Will she not been seen much in other X-books?

Alonso: X-23 will no longer be a member of X-Force. The team that is assembled in October has a new roster, which we'll announce soon.

IGN Comics: Finally we have the relaunch of X-Force. Is the mission statement of the team markedly different from the previous incarnation? You're bringing in Rick Remender and Jerome Opena – what made them the ideal team?

Alonso: The mission statement is pretty much the same – they're the X-Men's wet-works team, the team that does the dirty jobs – but they are no longer Cyclops' team, since, of course, he dies in "Second Com-" (laughs) I kid. We would never, ever kill Cyclops. Ever.

Anyways…X-Force will have an exciting new roster and new leadership. And the threat they face in the first arc is going to blow X-fans away.

And as far as the creative team, Rick has done an awesome job on Punisher and we've been trying to get him on something X for a while now. And Jerome? Have you seen how he draws? If he wasn't born to draw X-Force, I don't know who was..

IGN Comics: Is there anything else you'd like to add about the X-Men franchise as it moves into the Heroic Age?

Alonso: The X-Men are about to get more deeply engrained in the fabric of the Marvel Universe. "Second Coming" and "Siege" are both climactic conclusions to story arcs on both sides of the Marvel Universe – respectively, "House of M" and "Civil War" and "Dark Reign." They set the stage for stories that will show more interaction between mutants and their super-hero counterparts. Will everything be lovey-dovey? Can it be? Stay tuned.

Em julho, com o final de Second Coming, os títulos mutantes sofrerão grandes mudanças. O crossover trará todas as respostas que rondam os X-Men desde Complexo de Messias, como quem ou o que é Esperança. A partir de então, o grupo precisará de uma nova referência.

Uncanny X-Men se mantém com o grupo principal, além das participações de personagens secundários. Legacy continua com o foco em Vampira e os jovens mutantes, lidando com as consequências dos crossovers sobre eles. Novos Mutantes terá o mesmo elenco, exceto por aqueles que não sobreviverem a Second Coming, mas ganham o desenhista Leonard Kirk. X-Force será relançada em outubro com outra formação, outro problema para ser resolvido e um novo time criativo. Uma nova série também será criada (é a já anunciada X-Men). X-Factor já teve sua dose de mudanças a partir da edição #200.

Quanto aos vilões, teremos novas ameaças surgindo em Novos Mutantes e alguns mais conhecidos do público em Legacy.

X-Men será a série em que os mutantes voltam a ter uma maior ligação com o Universo Marvel. O primeiro arco, com seis edições, é chamado de “Mutantes versus Vampiros”, em que os X-Men precisarão enfrentar vampiros que fazem um ataque terrorista a São Francisco. A dupla criativa será formada pelo versátil roteirista Victor Gischler e pelo desenhista já conhecido dos fãs Paco Medina, que trabalhou Novos X-Men e Deadpool.

Wolverine terá também mudanças. O título será relançado, com Aaron roteirizando um arco da alma de Logan no Inferno. Os desenhos ficam com Renato Guedes, que Alonso tenta trazer há tempos para a Marvel. X-23 e Daken terão também novas séries. Laura, inclusive, não será mais membro de X-Force.

A X-Force terá uma nova missão e um novo time. O grupo não estará mais aos comandos de Ciclope, após Second Coming. Alonso até brincou que Scott pode morrer no evento. A equipe criativa será formada por Rick Remender e Jerome Opeña.
