XMENINFR001_COV_COLv2.jpgHere’s a quick wrap up of the talking points from Thursday’s Marvel Comics X-Men Panel.

  • The move to San Francisco is a big deal for the X-Men and will be big factor in the characters that come in and out of the title.
  • The team in Uncanny X-Men will be a rotating cast so there won’t always be the same characters running around.
  • Look for the Sisterhood of Evil Mutants coming to the Uncanny series.
  • A new Wolverine villain was announced.  Apparently the guy can punch a guy in the soul. Ouch.
  • X Infernus is the next big X-Men miniseries that will feature the return of Magik.  The series will launch in December with C.B. Cebulski writing. Look for Iceman to have a big part in the series.
  • Jean Gray may return, but not soon, as the company is not wanting to rush that project.
  • Look for more Gambit, Slipstream, Lifeguard, and possibly Apocalypse in the near future.
  • The panel discussed the apparent non-interaction between the X-Men and the rest of the Marvel Universe.
  • That whole Angel wing thing from Uncanny X-Men and X-Force is going to be resolved soon.  A possible Skrull reveal?
  • Uncanny X-Men #504 will address the fate/state of Kitty Pride.

    Sisterhood of Evil Mutants? Did one of the “geniuses” at Marvel watch the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and go “Dude, I’ve got awesome idea! Call Joe!” ?

    Uncanny X-Men #504 will address the fate/state of Kitty Pride.

    If it isn’t addressed in AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE first.
