As teased in a newly released tribute video to the character Jean Grey, Marvel are ready to unleash a new X-Men title this winter in X-Men Red.
Marvel have announced that following the 5 part Phoenix Resurrection mini series, Jean Grey will return in X-Men Red, a new series written by Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine) with art by Mahmud Asrar (All-New, All-Different Avengers Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor).
Tom Taylor says:
As an X-Men fan, as a Jean Grey fan, as a Mahmud Asrar fan, and as a Travis Charest fan, to be asked to write X-MEN RED is a dream. The time is right for an X-Men book like this, and I’m very excited about the story we’re telling in these pages. I’m excited for Jean Grey’s vision for the world, and I can’t wait for Marvel readers to meet our team of established fan-favorites and brand new mutants, and to see them in action. To write a core X-Men book is to walk in the footsteps of giants, so I’m hoping my secret mutant ability is sudden foot-growth.
Mahmud Asrar explains:
Jean Grey has been one of my favorite characters ever since the Dark Phoenix Saga, so I’m pretty excited to be a part of her return. The stories we plan to tell really captures the essence of the X-Men I read lovingly growing up. It’s just a delight to be working with this team. I have been working on many components of this book, including the designs of the characters old and new, and I haven’t been this eager to see the response to this book in a long while.
The new title will also feature new uniforms, a new team headquarters, and new characters, according to Marvel.
X-Men Red will arrive in comic shops in February 2018.
