Marvel Canceling All X-Men Titles And Relaunching Brand With New Event In July


Jay Cochran - May 16, 2019
Marvel Comics will be canceling all their X-Men titles and then plans on relaunching the property yet again starting with two titles called House Of X and Powers Of X in July. These will be penned by Jonathan Hickman. These two titles will last for 12 weeks at which point Marvel will then be launching an entire new universe of X-books, some of which will be of traditional fare, some will carry through on plot points presented in HOX and POX, and some books bring completely new concepts to the X-Universe. Hickman is said to be helming the new untitled flagship title for X-Men at that point.

Of course in the tradition of Marvel, to celebrate this latest X-Reboot, they will be doing a number of variant and incentive covers for the new HOX and POX titles.

Marvel will partner with participating retail stores to host HOUSE OF X #1 LAUNCH PARTIES. In addition to exclusive variant covers, participating retail stores will receive exciting promotional items, including special flower seed packets!

House of X and Powers of X will run for 6 issues each every two weeks, we will get 12 issues in total, THEN we will get the relaunch, with different titles, and Hickman will write the flagship title, I expect it to be Uncanny X-Men.

Yeah, I know. However, House and Powers are the beginning of the relaunch, or rather the first phase, so what comes next is equally important, but it's just the second phase.

From the looks of it, they are doing what you suggested. Instead of "X-Men" and "Uncanny X-Men," the titles are called "House of X" and "Power of X." This relaunch is cuttingthe entirety of the X-books to only two titles. They're even ending tangential spin-offs like X-Force. As for Hickman, he isn't my favorite writer either, but I can see that his return to Marvel after four years is something big.I think it even shows the level of trust they're putting on this project that the two books have rather odd names like "House of X" and "Power of X" instead of anything more much more marketable.

They've not done what I was suggesting since forever. 50 million x-titles with characters and stories all over the place which is what this basically sounds like this will end up being not only gets confusing, it's impractical with the cost of comics these days and also just flat our boring IMO. As for Hickman, my only exposure to him was with his Avengers run which I thought was god awful so sorry if I don't share your excitement there.?

I loved Hickman's Avengers, it was different and really gave the Avengers a grand scale.

Still as I said, unless some big chances happen with the X-men, it doesn't matter who writes them

Those feelings are best suited for the previous relaunch, in which they just had an ensemble team of writers and made the title weekly for 10 issues. This time they've wooed Jonathanfrikin' Hickman back to Marvel to write the book. This shows they're being serious this time.

Havent bought any new comics in a couple of years but Hickman on X-men is definitely enticing as I liked his FF and Avengers runs as well as Secret Wars. That said, no guarantee that his success on other titles automatically implies his X-run will be a success as others have tried and failed (Brubaker comes to mind).

As far as starting over with number 1, its annoying but hey, blame the fans as it does seem to provide a (temporary) sales boost. Doesnt bother me much since Ive only bought trades (or borrowed from the library) in recent years. What really turns me off are the annual or even semi-annualevents that disrupt the flow of the monthly titles while being lackluster at best and , at worst, are awful AND tend to throw heroes previous characterizations out the window.

I think this is awesome news.

I kind of knew something was on the horizon since Blue/Gold/Red all ended. The way editorial stepped in and changed the plans that the writers of those books had at the end, said they had a certain direction they were heading in. Then Disassembled happened, which was leading the X-Men to their darkest days (as seen in Uncanny now) and Age of X-Man. So, POX and HOX must spin right out of how Age of X-Man and Uncanny end and then give us a new direction for the line. I'm really hopeful it'll be good. I didn't read Hickman's Fantastic Four (though I know it's seen as a great run on the book), but I did read his Avengers runand I really had a hard time reading that book when he was on it. I found it very confusing and I couldn't understand a lot of what was going on, plus there were SOOOO many characters in the book, so I'm hoping I don't feel the same way about his X-Men.

So tired of titles relaunching every six months to a year. I hope this time its ongoing.

I find it odd Jean is wearing her old Marvel Girl outfit. I wonder if there is a story there?

Maybe they will make a figure of her as Marvel Girl.

Even with Hickman, I have little faith in the X-Men making a big comeback, unless some big chances happen

I was gonna groan from this news but then I saw Joe Mad! is doing a cover and I guess I'll see how that one looks :p
