NYCC 2009: X-Men

Published on February 6th, 2009

The X-Men panel was today here are some highlights


  • Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s “Old Man Logan” arc will end with “Old Man Logan Giant Sized Specail” and that #73-74 of the series would be co-written by Daniel Way and Jason Aaron. Mark Millar has some certain notions about what he wants to do with the Old Man Logan universe.
  • “Young X-Men” will end with #12(THANK GOD)
  • “Messiah War” crossing over between “Cable” and “X-Force.”

“This is the next step in the story of the Messiah story,” Cyclops is worried that Cable hasn’t returned to the future, so he sends a team to look in on them. “Cable may not want to be helped very much,” -Duane Swierczynski

The Messiah child is very very important to the mutant’s future.

Claremont will also be writing “X-Men Forever,” picking up where his and Jim Lee’s “X-Men” left off. “We are about to embark on a world where nothing that you think you know applies any longer. The world Charles Xavier imagines does not exist, and the X-Men’s place in the world has radically changed,” Claremont told the panel.

Tom Grummett will provide the art on this bi-weekly series.

“Deadpool’s a survivor, and he may be around in Cable’s future, somewhere,” Swierczynski hinted.

“Things are about to get very difficult for Scott Summers,” Fraction said of the appearance of a new redhead in the Marvel Universe, the child Hope as seen in Cable.

The X-Men “are on a big journey,” Alonso said, mentioning their black ops team “X-Force,” and that this could create trouble for Cyclops. “Those secrets could be revealed–and don’t forget that girl with green eyes and red hair! Don’t draw conclusions, but DO draw conclusions!”

Can’t wait sounds like there going to be a lot of great stories in the X-Men world.

I can’t wait for Messiah War  is the second major act in the ongoing story of the mutant baby. Messiah CompleX began the story of the first mutant baby born since M-Day and set Cable and X-Force off on their current paths. Also I love the idea of a bi-weekly series done by Chris Claremont.
