Rumor: New 'X-Men' Book To Be Announced Soon

BleedingCool: Rumor has it that last week at the ComcisPRO meeting, Marvel Comics told comic book retailers that they could look forward to a new main X-Men title and Star Wars title to be announced soon.

Marvel have the twice-monthly X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue titles coming from ResurrXion as well as all manner of other titles. But that means no Uncanny X-Men or X-Men… could one of them also be relaunched? Maybe even for the upcoming Make Main Marvel relaunch?

ECCC (March 2-5) might be the place to make such actual announcements. But C2E2 (April 21-23) and Wondercon (March 31-April 2) are close on its tail…

#tbt: X-Men #21 – The Revanche Saga, Chapter 2

#tbt: X-Men #21 – As the X-Men question her loyalty, Psylocke tries to remind her teammates that when it comes to trust she should have earned it by now. Enraged, the British Betsy attacks Psylocke, saying that Psylocke is lying about who she is. Xavier stops them and is then taken aside by Wolverine. Wolverine explains to Xavier that his senses tell him that both women are Betsy Braddock, and both are not. They both agree that the only way to answer their questions is to go to Lord Nyoirin's house for the answers. In Tokyo, the X-Men use Nyoirin's absence to their advantage and sneak into his house, only to discover a picture of Psylocke, labelled Kwannon, in Lord Nyoirin's study. As the X-Men digest the revelation of the painting they are surprised by the Silver Samurai, who slices the Beast's back with his sword. Written by Fabian Nicieza and Art by Brandon Peterson.
