X-Men Title Relaunches With All-Female Team

With the release of the XX tease image for the upcoming MarvelNOW title from Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel, most guessed that there was an an all-female X-Men book coming, and they were right. The cover image for issue 1 of the new X-Men title has been released, and it shows a great line-up!

X-Men #1
  • Jubilee
  • Kitty Pryde
  • Psylocke
  • Storm
  • Rogue
  • Rachel Grey

I was already excited for the upcoming Uncanny X-Force title, which also features Storm and Psylocke, along with Spiral, Fantomex, and Puck, and while I'm celebrating the fact that Rita will be back in a book, I think the new X-Men line-up may have me even more excited!

Uncanny X-Force is out January 23rd, while X-Men is out in April.

Bring it on!!!
