X-Men: Gold and X-Men: Blue Roster and Creative Teams Announced!
Its still a good few months before we even get to see the first issue of Inhumans vs X-Men or IvX as well as the first story under ResurrXion but we now have a good look at the members for both X-Men: Gold and X-Men: Blue and they’re…. great?
Below are details for the upcoming books and while there’s a tinge of disappointment for the choices they have for the team, I am brimming with happiness that the X-Men are really back in the forefront. Hopefully no more doom and gloom, no more extinction issues and no more schism.
X-Men: Gold will be written by Arrow-creator Marc Guggenheim with artist Ardian Syaf. True to the promises made when the ResurrXion titles were first announced, the X-Men: Gold roster is a callback to days of Chris Claremont’s classic, revered run on the franchise. The team features Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Old Man Logan, and Rachel Grey, and – in a case of the student become the teacher – Kitty Pryde as the team leader. X-Men: Gold will mark Kitty’s return to the X-Men after spending time in space with fiancee Star-Lord and the other Guardians of the Galaxy.
X-Men: Blue will be written by Cullen Bunn with art by Jorge Molina. The series will reunite the time-displaced original X-Men who were previously the stars of All-New X-Men: Angel, Cyclops, Beast, Iceman, and the returning Jean Grey as the team’s field leader. In a twist that calls back to the days of the original New Mutants series, the team will be under the tutelage of Magneto, a character that Bunn should be accustomed to writing for after penning the Magneto solo series and the most recent run of Uncanny X-Men, which featured Magneto as the team leader.
Both X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue will be released Spring 2017
