Much like last year’s Spider-Man 60th Anniversary virtual event, Marvel has announced another virtual event to take place at the beginning of this March. X-Men: 60 Uncanny Years will be a digital celebration of all things X-Men for the franchise’s 60-year anniversary. The event will take place on March 16th at 7pm ET/4 pm PT.
In X-Men: 60 Uncanny Years, fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at the X-Men lore with live interviews, live Q&As, giveaways, and unique exclusives. Last year, The Spider-Exclusives included some collectible Funkos, Legends series figurines, and an ultra-rare comic book Veve NFT. Though who knows what’s in store this time around.

The talents in attendance include the Godfather of the X-Men themselves Chris Claremont, along with talents such as Walt and Louise Simonson, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, Gerry Duggan, and Jonathan Hickman. If that weren’t enough… Marvel’s also announced some special guests from X-Men: The Animated Series, including the original show creator partnership of Eric and Julia Lewald, and writer Beau DeMayo. With possible hints of what’s to come from the highly anticipated continued series of the X-Men announced for Disney Plus.
