SDCC: Marvel Reveals A Half-Dozen New ‘X-Men’ Titles

Marvel canceled all previous X-Men titles seemingly to start things over with Jonathan Hickman‘s House of X and Powers of X. This, of course, was to clear the way for a tribble-like explosion of X-Men titles which were revealed today at San Diego Comic-Con. At Marvel Comics: Next Big Thing panel, six new X-books were revealed and the “Dawn of X” begins in October with:

X-Men #1 by writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Leinil Yu. This book stars Cyclops and his hand-picked squad of mutants.

The new X-Force is described as the CIA of the mutant world. This version of X-Force is written by Benjamin Percy with art by Joshua Cassara and consists of Beast, Jean Grey, Sage, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino. As Marvel says:

“In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there…yet.”

The new X-Force arrives in November.
