Marvel announces brand-new series ‘X-Men Legends’ for February 2021

X-Men Legends will explore classic eras of X-Men history featuring comics legends Chris Claremont, Louise Simonson, Fabian Nicieza, and more!

Press Release

Marvel Comics has announced a brand new X-Men series is on the way dubbed X-Men Legends. Set for a February 2021 release, the new series will explore different classic eras of the mutant heroes and will be in-continuity. The tales will be set during groundbreaking runs of classic creators and, yep, those classic creators will be helming the series. Those creators include Chris Claremont, Louise Simonson, Fabian Nicieza, Larry Hama, Peter David, and more!

“It’s incredibly exciting to finally tell the story of the infamous “third” Summers brother. Twenty-five years in the making, to see the truth about Adam-X revealed – and drawn so magnificently by Brett Booth – is one of the most surreal experiences of my career!” Nicieza said in a press release sent to AIPT. “Getting the opportunity to tell this tale while kicking off the new X-Men Legends series is an x-tremely x-citing!”

The first issue will be by Nicieza with art by Brett Booth. Check out the cover art below.
