Rumors are getting confirmed at Wondercon’s Talk to the Hat panel. Captain Marvel and Xtreme X-Men are both back.
First off, Carol Danvers is pulling rank. That is to say, she’s going to be Captain Marvel, not Ms. Marvel. I have a feeling people are going to miss the old costume (see below), but this does give Marvel a female-lead in a title, a common complaint of late. Kelly Sue DeConnick will be the writer. Dexter Soy will be the artist. Captain Marvel launches in July.
Then there’s Xtreme X-Men, a title associated with Chris Claremont. This time around Greg Pak & Stephen Segovia are moving over from Astonishing X-Men and assembling a team of Howlett, Kid Nightcrawler and Dazzler. Yes, there’s going to be some dimension-hopping with this one. Also a July launch.
You want to see some art? Of course you do.
