Marvel Launching New ‘X-Men’ Book Starring…

- 01-14-13Comics Posted by Sarah Moran

… Jubilee, Storm, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Rachel and Psylocke. Notice anything particular awesome about the lineup? It’s all women! And shockingly, Marvel has avoided calling the new book, from Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel, any thing silly like X-Women or Lady Mutants or Xavier’s Girls. It’s simply titled X-Men.

Colors will come from Laura Martin, and if this cover is anything to judge by, I think this new X-Men is going to be a beautiful book.

I’m a little behind on what’s been happening in the X-books lately, and by a little I mean completely, but I do love Storm sporting the mohawk again. And since I’m basically a Marvel Comics neophyte, can someone tell who’s Rachel? It seems a rather nondescript superhero name. Otherwise, this lineup features a lot of my favorites, and while Jubilee will star I’m excited to see all these ladies working together.

What do you think of this new X-Men team?

    Rachel Gray Summers :. Rachel’s parents are alternate future counterparts to the X-Men Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Jean Grey-Summers from a harsh dystopia. In this context, her “half” brother Cable, and paternal uncles Havok and Vulcan, are all very powerful mutants.
    Rachel was designed to have inherited her mother’s vast telepathic and telekinetic talents. She also inherited her mother’s original code name Phoenix; later, she changed her code name to Marvel Girl in homage to the late Jean Grey.

    Ugh, ruined by Storm. She’s usually so overbearing and insufferable.

  • Scott Summers

    I’ll give it a chance, but Mohawk Storm is us
    usually annoying.
