X-Men #1 Spoilers

Spoilers: Before this planet came to be, there were two siblings. The male banished the female to the cosmos, while he would inherit primordial Earth. In the present, the female piggybacks on a series of small meters towards Earth seeking revenge. The male: John Sublime follows her trace. Three weeks later in Bulgaria, Jubilee decides to return to the X-Men bringing an orphan baby with her. At the Jean Grey School, Storm and Rachel break up an argument between Bling! and Mercury. Rogue and Kitty warn them that Jubilee has called telling she’s being followed by someone. Sublime who’s been following her finds out Jubilee is heading to the school. Storm, Rogue and Kitty decide to intercept Jubilee’s train and investigate. Sublime arrives at the school and is promptly threatened by Rachel and Psylocke. Sublime claims he has come to ask for their help. Meanwhile, Jubilee explains to the X-Men that she rescued the baby from an explosion and has been taking care of him ever since. Without anyone realizing, the baby touches a speaker which ends up disrupting the train controls, killing the drivers. Rogue takes matters into her hands and manages to save all passengers before the train could run into another. At the school, Sublime explains that his sister has come to infect and dominate this world and hopes that the X-Men help him to stop her. Arkea is her name she’s more likely to possess machines. Psylocke attest the veracity in his words. Jubilee and the baby arrive at the school. Arkea who was possessing the baby transfers herself via electronics to Omega Sentinel and awakes.

X-Position: Rick Remender

CBR: In this week's X-Position, Rick Remender tackles all the issues from more reactions to Charles Xavier's death, the powers of Emin and Uriel -- the Apocalypse Twins, plans for the upcoming "Infinity" event and more.

I feel like at its core, "The Dark Angel Saga" was Psylocke's journey to take. Between Archangel's twins running around and the Avengers finding out about X-Force's involvement with it, will we see the lovely miss Braddock giving her input anytime soon?

Rick Remender: The Twins' focus is on hating Wolverine, the person who led X-Force to kill the child Apocalypse as well as Archangel, their father. They see him as the number 1 target and the man who has to pay for these crimes. So at this stage there will be no Betsy in the story. But that could change moving forward, who knows?

"X-Men" Variant by Ed McGuinness

CBR: UK based comic store, Limited Edition Comix, has produced a variant cover with Marvel Comics in aid of The Sick Children’s Trust, a charity that the store and its customers support.

The X-Men #1 variant cover, due to ship on the 27th May, is drawn by Ed McGuinness and features the X-Men’s stunning Psylocke and will have a print run of only 3500 copies worldwide with all profits going to the Sick Children’s Trust.

Richard Emms, director of Limited Edition Comix in Stevenage, comments on the release of the X-Men #1 variant cover, its connection to the charity and what it means to the store’s customers who have supported the charity too.

“We feel extremely privileged to be able to do something for The Sick Children’s Trust and on this scale. We can’t thank James (Viscardi at Marvel Comics) for all his help putting this together for us and getting Ed (Mcguinness) involved with the cover too. Ed’s cover is simply stunning and any X-fan should have this in their collection.

The Sick Children’s Trust is something that we will support each and every year and so too will our customers, as it is a charity that is very close to all of our hearts. Friends and loyal patrons of the store will know why we support this organization and we hope the whole comic buying world will support it too.

The variant cover will go on sale as from this Friday on our website, eBay and also several big comic book stores in the USA, including Midtown Comics in the coming week or so. The suggested retail price will be around $10 (£5.95) and you can buy as many as you want! We are not limiting these books at all as a sell-out means a ton of cash is going to the charity. We are also happy for comic store owners to contact us about stocking this variant cover too.”

The Sick Children’s Trust provides free, high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation for families whose children are seriously ill in hospital.

David Lopez & Terry Dodson Rejoin the X-Men

Marvel: Debuting on May 29, Brian Wood's X-MEN has already gotten fans talking and readers ready for the team's next stage of evolution.

The team consists of heavy-hitters Storm, Psylocke, Kitty Pryde, Rogue, Rachel Grey and Jubilee, a roster that's being brought to life in the opening arc by artist Olivier Coipel.

X-MEN #4 adds artist David Lopez to the title's creative team. Last year he provided pulse-pounding pencils to Wood's dynamic run on X-MEN and he’s also contributed to NEW MUTANTS as well as WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN. Following Lopez in the rotation will be UNCANNY X-MEN stalwart Terry Dodson.

We spoke with Wood about the action-packed artistic future of X-MEN. Brian, David Lopez previously collaborated with you on last year's X-MEN series. Was he a shoe-in for inclusion from the get go?

Brian Wood: I think it was always the plan and everyone's intention to bring David in as soon as possible. Certainly for me it was. I love David's work and it clicks just right with my words. Both Olivier and David are phenomenal artists who excel at drawing character emotion and action. But what makes them different? Is David's arc a story best suited for David Lopez, and how so?
Brian Wood: I always try and tailor the script to the strengths of the artist, so yeah, I'll have that in mind when I come up with ideas and write the actual scripts for David, just like I did for Olivier, and everyone else I work with. As far as what makes them different—I mean, I generally dislike comparing artists like that, but they are both proven, solid, amazing X-Men artists. Your previous run on X-MEN contained equal parts personal drama and high action. Will a similar balance be played out in David's new issues, or will it be heavier on one side?

Brian Wood: Well, ideally, we'll find the right mix. Action and drama is basically what the X-Men is as a concept. But this new series, this is designed to be a very action-heavy book, so what you'll probably see, comparing it to last year's X-MEN, is bigger, badder, and seriously amped up action alongside the drama and the interpersonal stuff. David's up to the task, I know he is! When picking artists for X-MEN, what has to be considered? Is there a unifying trait that Olivier, Terry and David all have?

Brian Wood: Being great? [Laughs] That's the most honest answer. Put together like that, this is a dream team. I missed working with Terry way back in 1999 when I came onto GENERATION X just as he was moving off it, and so I'm happy to finally get the chance to work with him. Is there one character in particular that each artist seems to have gravitated towards? Does one of their takes on one of the X-Men stand out as particularly exciting?

Brian Wood: It's hard for me to say since it all looks solid to me. I know from talking to Olivier at C2E2 recently that he feels pretty strongly about Storm, and I know David draws a killer Storm from working with him last year. Personally, I'm a big Jubilee fan so she's who I'm looking out for the most. Oh, also, Rogue! In my stories, I'm amping her up a bit, making her a total brawler, and I love how Olivier's drawn her in all these action scenes.

Kris Anka Talks Redesigns

"And just to speak for myself, modesty was never a factor. I never approached Storm's, or Psylocke's, or Spiral's designs with the sole intention of hiding their skin. The amount of real estate that ended up being covered or not was ENTIRELY dictated by my attempt to respect the character. There was no "Psylocke has to be fully covered because it would be indecent for any of her skin to be showing". I wanted to have her covered because I felt that a character who is performing stealth assassinations would want as little would-able flesh showing."  Full Article
