If you have seen the trailer for New Mutants, you know there is a huge supernatural vibe in the movie. That is actually how the team started, and in March, Marvel brings the group together in New Mutants: Dead Souls.

The six-issue mini-series is written by Matt Rosenberg, with art by Adam Gorham.

“They’re constantly in way over their heads, but always rise above. Our series takes all of that, collects some of the best New Mutants alongside some oddballs better known for their time with X-Factor and X-Force, and throws them into a mission they aren’t at all ready for. We pack it full of nods to the history of the team and hints about their future, and enough creepy moments, epic battles, offbeat humor, and dysfunctional family dynamics to make a book worthy of the title The New Mutants,” said series writer Rosenberg.

NEW MUTANTS: DEAD SOULS finds Magik leading a group that includes Wolfsbane, Rictor, Boom Boom, and Strong Guy as they attempt to figure out why strange events are occurring in the universe. But there’s more to their mission than meets the eye…and a bigger mystery is brewing, as the team realizes Karma – the mind-controlling mutant who has brought them together — may not be telling them the entire story. With each issue serving as a standalone tale, the mutants will try to uncover the truth behind these paranormal events – no matter who they have to battle!

    Sure, this could be fun, as anything Guido and Boom Boom should be, BUT…

    …WTF? In what way did the New Mutants start with “supernatural roots?” Either they’re brought together because of Donald Pierce of the Hellfire Club having a mad-on to kill mutants, or it was the alien Brood queen embryo in Professor X impelling him to gather more breeding stock for her eggs. /nerdrage.
