Marvel reveals details for new X-Men series ‘NYX’ #1

‘Nyx’ is just one of nine new series relaunching the X-Men line starting this July.

Press Release

This week, Marvel Comics announced the creative teams for Pheonix and X-Force, and X-Men fans were excited. Today, we’ve got new details about the new series NYX! Written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly with art by Francesco Mortarino, the mutants in this series include Ms. Marvel, Laura (Wolverine), Sophie Cuckoo, Prodigy, and Anole.

“This is the kind of book we came to Marvel to create,” Kelly shared. “When the Hivemind first formed, Collin and I bonded over books like Runaways, Young Avengers, and the original NYX – stories that showcased that tense, wonderful place where the mundane world and marvels collided. And no book has embodied that more in recent years than Ms. Marvel – Kamala Khan is one of the most definitive protagonists in the Marvel canon, and we’re deeply honored to be inheriting the character from Iman [Vellani] and Sabir [Pirzada], while chronicling a whole new phase in her growth as a young adult.”

So what’s NYX about?

Like the 2000s groundbreaking original series, NYX won’t shy away from reflecting the harsh realities of life as a mix of iconic and fan-favorite mutants reenter a world filled with bigotry, mistrust, and misinformation. Free from the X-Men’s guidance and Krakoa’s protection, they’ll shut out the noise and overcome the hate by doing what they do best—EVOLVING. But if you can count on anything, it’s that mutants are never all in agreement, and some are having a really hard time letting Krakoa go…

This is a book about mutants living past the end of their world and into a new beginning. This is Ms. Marvel embracing her mutant life in the neon streets of the Lower East Side. This is Anole trying to keep his head above water. This is Wolverine in the shadows of Bushwick, protecting her own. This is Prodigy writing history as it happens – and Sophie Cuckoo finding her own way. The news reports are bleak. The streets feel dangerous. There’s something lurking underground. Evil coming from every direction. But they’re determined to make it. This is mutant community. This is mutant pride. THIS IS NYX!

“I was a big fan of Joe Quesada and John Middleton’s version, so I was thrilled when Editor Annalise Bissa asked me to draw NYX!” Mortarino said. “I’m so glad to have the opportunity to work on characters like X-23 and Ms. Marvel, and NYC is a location that I love, so I’m eager to deliver the city vibes that I would see in books like Daredevil and Spider-Man! I’ve been really enjoying Jackson and Collin’s scripts, and I can’t wait to bring them to life!”

This news comes just weeks after Marvel revealed the creative teams behind the three main titles in the new era of X-Men. It’s part of a relaunch of the entire X-Men line, including three mainline X-Men titles: X-MenUncanny X-Men, and Exceptional X-Men.

New York, NY— April 11, 2024 — With Xavier’s school long gone and Krakoa destroyed, the greatest city on Earth is about to get a huge influx of mutants, whether they’re welcome there or not! See a group of former X-Men students navigate young adulthood, discrimination, and threats bent on shattering human-mutant relations for good in NYX, a new ongoing series from hotshot writing duo Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing (TimelessAlien: Black, White & Blood) and rising star artist Francesco Mortarino (AvengersCult of Carnage: Misery).

“The opportunity to take on these characters is both an incredible challenge and an amazing honor,” Lanzing added. “Sophie, Anole, and Prodigy have been personal favorites since their time on the New Mutants and New X-Men – in a sense, we’ve become who we are right alongside them. And returning Laura to NYX – while in a radically different context that centers her heroism over her victimhood – feels like the chance to really bring the character full circle and help her grow into the next phase of her life.”

“I was a big fan of Joe Quesada and John Middleton’s version, so I was thrilled when Editor Annalise Bissa asked me to draw NYX!” Mortarino said. “I’m so glad to have the opportunity to work on characters like X-23 and Ms. Marvel, and NYC is a location that I love, so I’m eager to deliver the city vibes that I would see in books like Daredevil and Spider-Man!

Last month, fans got their first look at what awaits Marvel’s line of X-Men titles following the bold Krakoan Age with the reveal of three flagship series: Jed MacKay and Ryan Stegman’s X-MEN, Gail Simone and David Marquez’s UNCANNY X-MEN, and Eve L. Ewing and Carmen Carnero’s EXCEPTIONAL X-MEN. The expansive mythos of the X-Men has always made space for additional series that test the limits and explore the far-reaching scope of the mutant metaphor. Fresh spins on classic X-Men titles and startling directions for your favorite mutants are just ahead, starting in July with X-FORCEPHOENIX, and NYX.
