While we got the announcement of a new direction for the X-Men by Jonathan Hickman during C2E2, not much was revealed about the new titles, House of X and Powers of X. Marvel has started teasing some of its titles coming out in July and included in that tease is a short synopsis of the new X-titles. Unfortunately it’s not much more than a brief tease and you’ll not get much more than the broad concept of the titles (basically one sentence descriptions) and some cover images:
House of X #1:
Since the release of UNCANNY X-MEN #1, there have been four seminal moments in the history of the X-Men. GIANT-SIZE X-MEN. X-MEN. AGE OF APOCALYPSE. NEW X-MEN. Four iconic series that introduced a new era for Marvel’s mutants and revolutionized the X-Men. In HOUSE OF X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind…one that will bring mutants out of the shadow of mankind and into the light once more.
Powers of X #1:
Hickman (INFINTY, NEW AVENGERS, FF) continues his revolutionary new direction for the X-Men. Intertwining with HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X reveals the secret past, present, and future of mutantkind, changing the way you look at every X-Men story before and after.
Also, in addition to the previously announced Valkyrie series, more series are spinning out of the The War of the Realms event: Loki and Punisher Kill Krew. Warning, there is a SPOILER for the just-started The War of the Realms event in the Loki desciption.
Written by Daniel Kibblesmith with art by Oscar Bazaldua.
After dying a grisly death in WAR OF THE REALMS, Loki learned a valuable lesson in warmongering: Don’t get caught. But now he has a whole new set of responsibilities—and his brother Thor is not about to let him walk away from them this time.
Punisher Kill Krew #1:
Written by Gerry Duggan with art by Juan Ferreyra.
During WAR OF THE REALMS, Frank Castle made a promise of vengeance, and Frank Castle keeps his promises. But a van full of orphans is about to make that promise a lot more complicated… How does a man kill gods and monsters?
Hmm. Will the Punisher title have a skrully presence as well? Guess we’ll find out in July.
There are a few more titles teased in the article, but the ones above are the #1s. We all know how much people love #1s.
