Marvel Comics has announced a new one-shot titled Giant-Size X-Men: Thunderbird which spins out of Leah Williams and Lucas Werneck’s X-Men: Trial of Magneto. John Proudstar aka Thunderbird is now resurrected and marks the first X-Man to die in action. Making her Marvel Comics writing debut is AEW star wrestler Nyla Rose, alongside co-writer Steve Orlando and artist David Cutler. Expect to find it in comic book shops on April 27th!
In a statement, Orlando said “this book wouldn’t exist without the incredible work of Nyla Rose and David Cutler, who are joining me on this blockbuster to tell a Thunderbird story that’s as raw, real, and riveting as possible.”
So what’s Giant-Size X-Men: Thunderbird about?
The world John Proudstar has returned to is completely different from the one he once knew. Looking to find refuge in the familiar, Thunderbird seeks out someone from his past at an Apache reservation…and uncovers a horrifying threat to the Indigenous mutant community. Will Thunderbird be able to save his people? Or will his justified rage lead him astray?
Orlando added, “We’re taking Thunderbird on a two-fisted quest to reunite with his family and carve out a place for himself in this brave, new, Krakoan era. The world has changed while Thunderbird was away. The threats might’ve gotten more complex, but Thunderbird’s still sure there’s not a problem out there he can’t solve with his own two hands.”
