X-Men '92 Returns as Ongoing Series In 2016

Newsarama: Marvel has announced that the Secret Wars tie-in miniseries X-Men '92 is returning as a new ongoing series in spring 2016. The news was announced as part of Marvel's Thursday evening presentation at the Diamond Retailer Summit in Baltimore. Chris Sims and Chad Bowers are returning to the write the series, joined by interior artist Alti Firmansyah (Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde) and cover artist David Nakayama.

In the ongoing X-Men '92 series, the X-Men will return from Secret Wars' Battleworld to their own universe to re-open Xavier's school. The school will have some new students however, as Cassandra Nova's pupils will be enrolling. And from the looks of #1's cover, the mutants will be dealing with 1990s X-Men villain stalwarts such as Omega Red, Exodus, Apocalypse, Fabian Cortez, Bastion, Mystique, Trevor Fitzroy and the Brood.

Great news! The '90s X-Men are so nice that I can't even complain about Psylocke being in the bathing suit again (as it fits with the '90s spirit).

Speaking of Betsy, it's great to see her in this cover! But where are Cyclops and Jean? And will Jean act like in the animated series (where she would always faint or do something clumsy whenever she tried to use her powers)? I hope so!

No not a fan of a weak Jean (the show writers didn't like her). I'm glad this series made her stronger. The writer likes Psylocke so she'll at least have a good showing.
