[Solicitations] Charles Soule to write Astonishing X-Men #1
Marvel has announced Charles Soule will take on the Astonishing X-Men #1 in July.
Though there hasn’t been an artist announced (yet), Soule is bringing Old Man Logan, Archangel, Mystique, Rogue, Gambit, Bishop, Psylocke, and Fantomex together to take on one of their greatest foes.
“The book is designed to tell a very focused, specific story, with a few cool main villains,” says series writer Charles Soule. “I’m writing it like a puzzle box, with new layers and reveals opening up every issue. So, you’ll never know exactly where it’s going to go next – but the structure is built in such a way that almost anything from the long, incredible history of the X-Men can pop up. If you think about these characters, they’ve been present or involved for virtually every major era of X history, all the big events. That’ll play a role in a big way.”
Astonishing X-Men #1 is set to arrive in July, and with all the X-Men titles coming our way, it seems like someone higher up at Marvel has buried the hatchet with someone at 20th Century Fox.
