Out.com had the exclusive news that the X-Men line is expanding in March 2023 with the new New Mutants Lethal Legion series. Charlie Jane Anders will write the five-issue series with art by Enid Balám. The series features brand-new mutant Escapade, her fellow trans mutant BFF Morgan Red, and the genetically engineered flying turtle, Hibbert.
Anders said this series would be funnier and lighter than her story arc in New Mutants, which she talked about in X-Men Monday #177.
“I’ve really loved getting to explore the classic New Mutants themes around coming of age, dealing with trauma and making plenty of mistakes along the way,” Anders said to Out.com. “And of course, I’m overjoyed to write more story for Escapade, Morgan and Hibbert, and show how they continue to find their place in a world of mutants and monsters.”
