Marvel Brings Us Six ‘Age Of X-Man’ Mini-Series This February

by Olly MacNamee

With the relaunch of Uncanny X-Men last week, it would seem Marvel are gearing to really push their X-Men franchise once more, just as they are about to be ‘dissembled’ unfortunately. And what better way to show you they mean business than by announcing 6 new mini-series under the umbrella title Age of X-Man. But who is the X-Man the title is referring to? Nathan Summers, Apocalypse? There’s only one thing I know from these covers, and that is that there are a lot of beards in the X-Men’s collective futures. All of these series will follow the events of Marvel’s previously announced Age of X-Man: Alpha coming in January. It’s all very cloak and dagger, isn’t it?

Anyway, here are all the covers and the creative teams attached to each 5 issue mini.
