Marvel reveals new X-Men era titles, art, and more, launching July 2024

Marvel unveiled new X-Men titles like ‘Uncanny X-Men,’ ‘Exceptional X-Men,’ and more at SXSW panel today.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has released its plans for the new era of X-Men at the Future of Marvel Comics’ X-Men and Digital Comics today, and the news features three titles. In attendance from Marvel were Jed MacKay, Gail Simone, Tom Brevoort, and C.B. Cebulski, who are the new architects of the post-Krakoan Age X-Men.

“The X-Men are fractured in the aftermath of the end of Krakoa, scattered across the globe without a central base of operation,” Marvel Comics VP Executive Editor Tom Brevoort explained. “What that means in practice is that all three titles carrying the name X-MEN are core X-MEN series—they all center around one of the major aspects of what the team has been about at different points. This is very much by design. We want to field a wide assortment of X-titles with different styles and tones and approaches, an X-MEN book for virtually any taste.”

Among the details was that there will be three mainline X-Men titles: X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, and Exceptional X-Men. The relaunch is being dubbed X-MEN: FROM THE ASHES, with Jed MacKay and Ryan Stegman on X-Men, Gail Simone and David Marquez on Uncanny X-Men, and Eve L. Ewing and Carmen Carnero on Exceptional X-Men.

“Long-time fans of Kitty Pryde can count on the kinds of adventures you expect from her as a classic favorite, while I hope new and old readers alike will get to love this all-new team of young mutants,” Ewing shared.

“Kitty, the one-time kid sister figure of the X-Men, has to reckon with her own memories—good and bad—of being a child of Xavier as she navigates a role as leader and mentor for a new generation of mutants who are trying to make their way in a time of crisis. I always try to strike a chord between appealing to veteran comics fans and new readers, but since so many people fell in love with the X-Men as teens and this book is about a team of young folks, that feels especially important to me here. I hope that for some 13- or 14-year-old readers, this might be the first comic book they pick up. Working on this series has been a ton of fun already, as Carmen Carnero’s art is bringing so much dynamism to these pages, and the entire X-team of writers is in a flurry sharing scripts and feedback and ideas.”

The teams include Cyclops, Psylocke, Beast, Psylocke, Kid Omega, and Juggernaut; another is Wolverine, Gambit, Nightcrawler, Jubilee, and Rogue. A third team will feature Kate Pryde and Emma Frost with new mutants Ronze, Axo, and Melee,
