Set after the final issue of the book’s initial run, X-TREME X-MEN returns in a new limited series
Announced at San Diego Comic-Con’s Retailer Panel, the highly renowned X-Men writer Chris Claremont is reuniting with another X-Men icon, Salvador Larroca. All for a brand-new X-TREME X-MEN limited series in November!
These two practically defined 2000s X-Men with their daring work on the first X-TREME X-MEN, presenting radical elements that have had long-standing influences on the mutant mythos even today. Now they’ve returned with a new saga set during the time of their definitive run.
The new series takes place directly following the final issue of X-TREME X-MEN with a story arc that ensures wide-reaching consequences for some favorite X-characters. The X-Treme team reunites for a high-stakes mission after Kitty Pryde suffers from a potent psychic attack, care of her old enemy, Ogun. Yet, what secret is Ogun hiding? And will the combined might of Bishop, Sage, Gambit, Rogue, Rachel Summers, Storm, and Wolverine even be enough to stop his sinister plan?
“I’m very happy to be teaming up with Chris again to bring back the adventures of the X-Treme X-Men!” Larroca said. “It’s been a long time and I’ve missed this team and this book that I consider a child of mine. I hope fans enjoy what we’re doing with this new run–there’s lots of new histories to tell. This is the book that Chris Claremont fans have been waiting for and I’m proud to once again illustrate his awesome plots. Let’s make this an instant classic!”
