Resident X-Men murderer Charles Soule is back at it again, as later this year he’ll be following his prior ‘Death of Wolverine’ story with ‘Death of X’, an event which seems to be touching on several X-Men titles across the final few months of 2016. But today we got even more from the X-Cutioner himself, with the news that he’ll be co-writing a six-issue miniseries called Inhumans Vs X-Men.
Soule will be joined by Jeff Lemire and Leinil Yu for the storyline, which sees popular Inhumans characters like Ms Marvel, Medusa, and… uh… drawing a blank there; taking on the combined forces of the X-Men. Whilst ‘Death of X’ is set in the recent past, exploring what led Cyclops to get killed and bring out the world’s wrath against the X-Men, this story will be set in the present-day. Old Man Logan’s in it and everything.
It seems that the Terrigen Mists, which brought out the inherent ‘Inhumanness’ of anybody with the right ancestry are going to be the centre of this one. On one side, the Inhumans like them because it makes them stronger. On the other side, it sterilises and ultimately poisons mutants. So… well… I’m sure there’ll be some kind of reason why the Inhumans are seemingly fine with that going on, but we’ll have to wait for the miniseries to find out. This one is scheduled for Winter 2017.
And hey, just a passing thing, but is that Colossus at the back? Does he have a beard now? Onboard for that.
