Marvel sets sail revealing creative team and details for ‘Marauders’ #1

New team, new villains, and new mysteries as writer Steve Orlando and artist Eleonora Carlini take over Marauders in March.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has been blowing X-Men fans away for over a week with teasers for their Destiny of X line of comics and today we’ve got new info on Marauders #1. Written by Steve Orlando with art by Eleonora Carlini, the series will spin out of X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine. Orlando will actually get his Marauders start in the January one-shot. The first issue sets sail on March 30th, 2022.

“Taking the helm of MARAUDERS is easily the most exciting moment of my career, especially when it’s my first-ever ongoing not just on Krakoa, but at Marvel in general,” Orlando said. “Exploding out of the team’s already-amazing adventures as part of Hellfire Trading, Captain Pryde’s new crew of Marauders will stop at nothing to bring endangered mutants to safety — to always go where they’re needed, not where they’re wanted. To mutant rescue, wherever it calls them!”

Listen to the latest episode of the X-Reads Podcast!

So what’s Marauders #1 about?

Captain Pryde and the Marauders are rededicating themselves to rescuing mutants, wherever they may be, and no matter how dangerous the odds against them are. Joining Kate and Bishop will be Psylocke, Daken, Aurora, Tempo, and Somnus, the new mutant hero who debuted earlier this year in MARVEL’S VOICES: PRIDE #1! But Captain Pryde’s crew is not yet complete! Against her better judgment, Pryde comes face-to-face with the final Marauder, someone no fan will see coming but may be the Marauders’ only chance to unravel a mystery stretching two billion years into the past!

Be sure to stay tuned as AIPT will be covering this and other Destiny of X series via our X-Men Monday column!
