COMICS: WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN Being Relaunched By Jason Latour And Mahmud Asrar
Last month, it was revealed that Jason Aaron's Wolverine & The X-Men run will be wrapping up next year. It has now been revealed that Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar are launching a new #1 which will now focus on a small group of students, along with new additions to the school like Fantomex!
Wolverine & The X-Men is coming to an end in February with issue #42, but don't fret, because it will be back the following month with a new #1 issue. This volume of the series will apparently serve as a "summer semester" after the first "school year" of Aaron's run, focusing specifically on students Quentin Quire, Evan Sabahnur and Idie Okonkwo. "These kids are Logan’s legacy, but as we’ve seen up to this point he didn’t have such a great track record with that stuff even when he was at his best," new writer Jason Latour explains. "In them we could be witnessing the growth of the next great team of X-Men, or the creation of the biggest threats the Marvel U will ever see. Everything we’re planning, the adventures, the threats, will reflect that journey."
With Wolverine now mortal, he decides to commit to ensuring that his legacy isn't leaving behind the next big future X-Men villain, but one of his oddest decisions is adding Fantomex to the school's staff! "Well with the mass exodus of teachers Fantomex is, maybe somewhat surprisingly, Logan’s first choice to step into an open position," adds Latour. "Fantomex is a man who sees the world in grey, who understands what it means to be raised a weapon. As violent has he’s been, he’s shown again and again that he does know its cost." Expect a third volume to be launched as soon as the summer semester ends...that'll be another new #1 then!
