The children of X-Men are being introduced to the Marvel Universe, but who are they?

“I think people are going to get a kick out of this new generation of X-Men that Chris and Patrick Scherberger have created,” said Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “They’re students expected to carry on the legacy of their forefathers and foremothers, but they’re also kids with aspirations of their own. What’s life like for a mutant in a world where most of the original X-Men are long gone? The story plays to Chris’s strengths in character development and Patrick’s art has an energy that makes this series really pop. It’s fun and tugs at your heart as the drama of these five very special young people unfolds and surprises.”

Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the five issue series by Chris Claremont and Patrick Scherberger.

  1. I’ll wait for the trade, but it looks interesting, if not fun.

    Random question: Why bother release an out of continuity mini in single issue format? Wouldn’t it make more sense to release it as an OGN? The story would probably read better that way.
