Press Release

Marvel Comics has announced Peter David and Todd Nauck are the next X-Men Legends creative duo and it’s all about X-Factor in this one! The next story arc can be found in X-Men Legends #5 out July 21st.

X-Factor are old friends of mine, and I was delighted when Marvel gave me the opportunity to revisit them,” David said in a press release sent to AIPT. “I have to admit, I was a little concerned since so many years have passed. But the moment I started writing them it was like no time had gone by it all.”

So what’s it about?

Mutants have taken hostages, and X-Factor is taking the blame! But before judgment is rendered for Polaris, Havok, Wolfsbane, Strong Guy, Quicksilver, and Multiple Man, Val Cooper and X-Factor will take the stand! But who’s telling the truth, and what really went down at the Latverian Embassy? It all makes sense…from a certain point of view.

Now, fans can revisit this beloved era with a revelatory, in-continuity adventure that takes place between X-FACTOR #75 and #76.
