The Children Of The Atom Are Revealed

The Children Of The Atom Are Revealed


Jay Cochran - January 17, 2020
The new era of X-Men books continues this April with CHILDREN OF THE ATOM, a new ongoing series from writer Vita Ayala and artist Bernard Chang! This thrilling new team book will debut a new squad of super heroes that will turn the X-Men’s world upside down and you can get your first glance at these new young heroes in R.B. Silva’s stunning cover below! Further details surrounding the cast remain a mystery but it’s no secret that these teens have been inspired by your favorite X-Men. But don’t let their admiration fool you, their adventures will be far different and you won’t believe the twists and turns that await you from the very first issue!

Writer Vita Ayala is currently taking Marvel’s famous living vampire on a chilling journey in MORBIUS and is eager to bring their creative genius to the X-Men line with this brand-new ongoing series!

“The initial seed of the idea actually came from [Editor] Chris Robinson: What if the X-Men had sidekicks?” explains Ayala. “MY take on it became, what would actual kids from our current time be like, if they were X-Men sidekicks? What would Gen Z X-Men be like?”

Joining Ayala on CHILDREN OF THE ATOM will be Bernard Chang who, throughout his illustrious comic book career, has crafted stories for some of Marvel’s most iconic characters from Deadpool to the X-Men. Now, he’s using his legendary skills to create a brand new team of iconic Marvel Heroes!

“I have never known a world without mutants and the X-Men, and to be able to create characters that would become part of the canon is WILD. I love them very much. Bernard, Chris and I have worked so hard on them, and I was practically itching to let them out into the world so others could love them too,” said Ayala. "What makes the new cast special to me is that they are reflective of a lot of people I know who look up to what the X-Men stand for, and have taken it upon themselves to further those ideals. These kids are exactly the kids who, in real life, have posters of Storm and Wolverine in their rooms, who grew up seeing them as heroes and want to live up to that.”

Just who are these new kids?

I think that New Warriors train wreck is supposed to be release as a collected novel. Luckily, they have the plague to blame when the thing tanks.

It's goona be an instant classic not because it is good...it becomes a collector item because of the controversy and how it divided everybody....You guys are right, no way is any company passing on such a golden opportunity...I may risk and get one for future re-sell.

I thought this Atom thing was abandoned? I have really no interest on this...now I'm wondering if the new 'New Warriors' with Safe space will eventually be released...maybe 2021 with a bang!

If something runs for 50 years it's going to be repetitive and derivative eventually. It doesn't mean they are badly written.  A lot of the old stuff is absolutely cringe worthy if you read it nowadays.

I  mainly read indies now because I'm tried of the crossovers but I still read some Marvel. Current marvel titles that are great:

Doctor Doom

Amazing Spider-man

Immortal Hulk

Thor

Marauders

X-Men

 

 

I've been getting the new run of Spider-Man Noir, but the print is too small to read without glasses I don't have and don't need for any other comics I read. It's weird.

Don't care if I come off negative or not. All this is is unimaginative pap that's been stolen from the works of far better artists and writers. When Len Wein and Dave Cockrum created the all-new X-Men, they didn't just rip off characters that had already been there. Mutants were rare, yes, but they weren't just limited to North America, or even worse, just the eastern seaboard- they were in Canada, Africa, Russia, Japan, Ireland. And they weren't junior versions of already established characters. 'Cause they were unique. 'Cause somebody took some time to actually imagine what mutants could be.

To be fair, I haven't bothered with reading X-Men for some time now, because poorly done, soap opera drama and the rest of the alt dimension, alt time, convoluted mess they pass of as story lines just don't do it for me. I know there are a lot of fans out there who love the X-Men so much, theyd have Marvel get rid of anything not related and re-name themselves into "X-Men Comics". Frankly I think its all overdone. But I will say this, its not about being resistant to change or being "old", its about good writing. Both Marvel and DC have forgotten that.

Who knows, it may turn out to be a very good book. Good luck!

You may call it negative, I call it truth. No only is it tiresome, it's outright lazy and uninspired. These are not new characters, these aren't new ideas or concepts or inspirations. These are simply the same characters we already know and like that they just turned upside down and inside out in order to write I diversity. I'm all for diversity, but if you're gonna do it, do it right, with new characters and new stories. If it's really that important it will resonate with the fan base, but this crop of new "writers" heads are so filled up with social activism that they never learned how to actually write and create and tell good stories. When ideology takes precedence over actual ideas, that's when imagination is lost and you're no longer making good comics, but rather a buncha op-ed pieces with pretty pictures. It's a damn shame when a once good writer loses his skill, but I wonder if any of these new writers ever had any skill at all.

Concept seems bad and boring. But if the story is well written it could still be a pleasant surprise. Doubtful based on recent history but still hoping.

Yeah, like how many Next Generation X-men and Avengers are there now and the current Generation isn't going away

Oh good.  Another batch of teen mutants that will be mostly forgotten within the next five years.
