Get hype for newly revealed ‘X-Factor’ #1 variant covers

Check out new covers for Mark Russell and Bob Quinn’s ‘X-FACTOR’ #1, on sale this August.

Press Release

After revealing the creative team behind X-Factor earlier this week, Marvel has revealed variant covers for the first issue today. Written by Marcus To and art by Bob Quinn, the first issue comes to comic shops on August 14th.

“The thing I’ve always loved about the X-Men is that they’re characters first, super heroes second,” Russell shared. “So being able to write characters like Havok and Angel and Frenzy in a post-Krakoa reality is an opportunity to write about what I really care about, which is how do we help each other survive the apathy of the world we live in?”

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

So what’s X-Factor about?

FAME, FORTUNE, MUTANTS! From the ashes of Krakoa, a new mutant arms race sweeps the globe! International governments are building their own mutant armies. But only America’s X-Factor has the most powerful, most patriotic, most marketable mutant heroes to stem the tide and make the world safe for democracy! Join them as they go from one death-defying mission to another. Who will die? Who will fall in love? Who will be the first to sell out? Like, comment and subscribe to find out!

New York, NY— May 9, 2024 — In the wake of Krakoa’s fall, the government develops the latest iteration of the officially sanctioned mutant strike force X-FACTOR! Announced earlier this week and set in the X-Men’s upcoming From the Ashes era, X-FACTOR will be written by Mark Russell (Fantastic Four: Life StoryThe Flintstones) and drawn by Bob Quinn (Captain AmericaKnights of X). Today, fans can check out all-new variant covers for the debut issue including a group shot by Mahmud Asrar, the first in a series of character pinups by Marcus To, and a “Windowshades” variant cover by Luciano Vecchio.

In addition to Havok, Angel, Pyro, Frenzy, and Feral, the new variant covers also reveal two more recruits: reliable X-Man Dr. Cecilia Reyes and Xyber, a new character whose electronic-based powers are essential to the team’s covert missions. Whether they join for fame, money, or to truly make a difference, they’ll band together against emerging mutant factions like the Mutant Underground and X-Term. But mutants know better than anyone to be wary of political machinations, and their loyalty will be tested right off the bat when they find themselves on opposite sides of former friends…
