Marvel reveals new details for Legion of X
Marvel has dropped new details for the upcoming Legion of X book which takes the place of 2021’s Way of X book starring Nightcrawler and his team of mutants working to fix and save mutant society living in Krakoa!
Check out the cover for Legion of X below plus some new details as well.
The book will be written by Si Spurrier who also wrote the script and story for Way of X with artist Jan Bazaldua who was also an artist for Star Wars and the Winter Guard books.
The team includes Nightcrawler, Legion, Pixie, Juggernaut, Blindfold, Doctor Nemesis and even the mutant ForgetMeNot. The team’s mission is to help protect Krakoa from any internal threats that it will face. A different version of X-Force who deals with external threats on Krakoa on a hush-hush basis.
Spurrier in a recent interview said:
I’ve wanted to do a precinct-style ensemble story since I first read HOUSE OF X. For the first time, the Marvel Universe has this densely packed, beautiful (and beautifully volatile) population of superhumans, out in the open, all in one place. It needs peacekeepers, sure… but it’s a mistake to think of them as simply cops. You don’t get far in Krakoa if the limit of your imagination is beating people up or reaching for a gun. Mutant civilization needs those who think differently. That’s where Nightcrawler, Legion, Pixie and Juggernaut come in — along with a rotating cast of your favorite mutants and non-mutants. And a couple of new faces you’re going to want to watch very, very closely…
I couldn’t be prouder to be helming this new title, with the incredible Jan Bazaldua doing the work of her life. It’s no secret that the writers of the X-office have formed one of the tightest cells of additive cross-title creativity in our industry. It’s no exaggeration to say that the events you’ll encounter in LEGION OF X are dominoes being flipped whose chains of repercussion will feed the greatest earthquake in modern comicdom, which is rumbling devastatingly down the pipe towards you even now.

To remain a mutant sanctuary, Krakoa must safeguard itself against those who would damage its peace or traumatize its people. The lost must be found, and the wicked must face redemption — or retribution. It’s up to the ever-soulful swashbuckler Nightcrawler to keep the spark alive and the omega-level mutant Legion to host a unique team in the psychedelic mindspace called the Altar. With a host of X-Favorites on the beat including magical young X-Man Pixie, one-man riot squad Juggernaut, the recently-returned and ever-mysterious Blindfold, the X-Men’s resident super genius Dr. Nemesis, and more, the Legion of X will do anything to protect mutants’ right to pursue happiness and hope. The team will come out of the gate with some of the most intense missions Krakoa has faced to date including a hunt for a missing Arakkii god, a skinjacker possessing innocent mutants, and a villain worth praying for… Prepare to meet these exciting new additions to the X-Men’s iconic rogues gallery as LEGION OF X bares mutantkind’s heart and soul!
