Villains get the spotlight in this fall’s “X-Men: Black” one-shots
Last week’s X-Men: Black teaser had us eagerly awaiting more details, because what little information we had allowed for lots of speculation. Magneto was featured in the teaser image, so would he be leading an X-Men team? Would this be a new take on the Brotherhood of Mutants? Marvel promised to reveal full details at their Comic-Con panel on Sunday, and they didn’t disappoint.
X-Men: Black, they’ve announced, will be a series of five one-shots, each focusing on a different villainous mutant: Magneto, Emma Frost, Juggernaut, Mojo (awwww yeah), and Mystique. With covers from J. Scott Campbell, the issues have creative teams with talent like Scott Aukerman, Nick Bradshaw, Leah Williams, and the legendary Chris Claremont.
Head on over to the Marvel blog for more details. Each one-shot is scheduled to release this October.
