After taking the Master of Magnetism to court in the recent Trial of Magneto miniseries, writer Leah Williams is teaming up with artist Carlos Gómez for an all-new X-Men limited series. Today Marvel announced details for X-Terminators, a series that will take Dazzler, Jubilee, Boom-Boom, and Wolverine on “a chaotic ride through a dark corner of Marvel’s underworld.” No additional creators for the series were named in the announcement. Federico Vicentini provides the cover for the first issue.
Here’s how the publisher describes the grindhouse-influenced limited series:
In typical X-Men fashion, what starts as a wild night out gets even crazier when Jubilee, Boom-Boom, and Dazzler are kidnapped and put into elaborate death traps by a mysterious new army of enemies! What are three fierce mutants with the power to blow things up to do? Expect a hardcore, neon-fueled, down and dirty type of adventure unlike any seen before in X-Men history with all the light blasts, fireworks, time bombs, and brawling you can possibly hope for!
In a statement announcing the series, Williams expressed her immense excitement for the project:
“I’m excited about how gleefully transgressive this book is—it’s sexy, stupid, and chaotic. One of my favorite moments in the making-of this book was Jordan [D. White] asking, ‘What do you think… Parental Advisory for this book? Or just T+?… I am leaning PA.’”
Artist Carlos Gómez echoed the same sentiment, and praised collaborating with Williams.
“I’m eager to be working on X-TERMINATORS with Leah! She’s an incredible writer and always delivers fun and engaging stories and this title is no exception! Did I mention it’s action-packed? Also, X-Men has been one of my favorite series and it’s always cool to be back in the X-Family!”
Look for X-Terminators #1 to arrive in stores on Wednesday July 6, 2022.
