The First X-Men

Postby Ult_Sm86 » Mon May 14, 2012 2:46 pm

So Marvel has started teasers for a new series called "The First X-Men".


While most people are assuming that it's a continuation of "X-Men First Class", I wouldn't be so quick to jump to that same conclusion. In fact, I would go so far as to say we may be looking at a Wolverine title involving other "immortal" characters who have been around a lot longer.

Recent events that have me wondering about this:

-Iron Fist's role (both currently and now, apparently, historically) in the Phoenix Force's visitation to Earth. Stretching back ages.

-The AvX event where the X-Men's core values are being brought into question.

-Xavier's sudden absence in the comics.

-Time Traveling Sabertooth (see Astonishing Wolverine & Spider-Man by Zeb Wells)

-Angel can't remember ANYTHING. He's basically NOT Warren at this point.

-It's about that time when people start getting retcons or new origins, and Xavier is due. Been saying that for a few months now.

Unless it's yet another series about the same old O5, I'm curious to see what this turns out to be.

Double posting for great justice and updates!

So, apparently this new limited series aims to retcon Wolverine as the most central figure to the X-Men, more or less replacing Xavier's role in the franchise's history: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=38666

Somehow, I'm not really surprised.

I would take what you say Star but spin it a tad.

They're replacing SCOTT with Logan. Seems strange how a lot of Logan development is coming after AvX... still haven't heard anything about Cyke though.

:smug :toothy I wonder what's going to happen to him? :cracked
