OK, guys, as we head towards the mutant event of the year we’re running down the countdown! Today, I’m walking you through the main characters of Brian Wood’s X-cellent X-Men and Jason Aaron’s’ Wolverine and the X-Men…
Over the next few pages, I’ll be giving a brief run-down of the different characters in X-Men and Wolverine and the X-Men (and I’m also going to feature a couple of the All-New cast, who Loz mentioned yesterday but I want to go into more detail…). I’ll be giving a brief bio, a ‘best guess’, but – and it’s a big ‘but’ – no spoilers, only my best guesses!
First, a quick summary:
A dying Hank McCoy, believing that the mutant race was falling into civil war, took desperate measures; he travelled to the past and recruited the five original X-Men, bringing them to the present day. Since then, this team have struggled to understand the present-day, steadfastly refusing to return to their own time. Kitty Pryde has acted as their mentor, but sadly they’ve lost Angel, who headed away from them to the pages of Uncanny X-Men.
Wolverine and the X-Men
Wolverine is a teacher. Yeah, for real, that’s the premise of WatXM – Logan is a teacher, and this is the story of his school!
A new series starring an all-female cast, X-Men features a ragtag bunch of powerful and experienced women of the X.
I’m going to ignore Iceman, Psylocke, Rogue, Storm, and the kids in WatXM – I simply have no idea where those particular characters will fit in…
So let’s get going…
