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?

On a side note, I have been re-watching every episode of the original X-Men animated series starting with episode 1 on Disney+ and man I miss that series. It makes me miss that time period not only for the show itself but the comics most those episodes where based on.

I also forgot about many of the random cameos the show had like War Machine and Punisher.

Gambit having memories of Ghost Rider is one of my favourite random cameos

Might I suggest Twilightcreeper?

Heh. That's probably more likely, huh? Darkwrither, maybe?

Anyone want to place bets on character names? I'm thinking Seraph, Marvel Boy, Balor,Dusktoddler, and Maneuver.

Lol. That was good. I'll take Vegas odds against most of these, but Seraph and Dusktoddler are a lock.

Might I suggest Twilightcreeper?

Wow another "next generation" of X-Men, who will be dumped in favour of the "next generation"

So true. What made theX-men so unique in the first place is the fact that they were so unique (and different). Now, withevery writer and their mom"creating" a handful of "new" mutant characters it'soverflowing the supply and demand chain. There's just too many mutants floating out there and each writer is trying to come up with a fresh new cropin an area that has been over harvested.Even after the HOM event, in which they attempted to reduce the amount of mutants in the Marvel Universe, there are still too many mutants in the comics, cuz pretty much every mutant of of any recognition got their powers back eventually, as well. We have to understand that the X-Men are the revenue source that carried Marvel (and comics in general) through some hard times in pastand we should have all expected they would milk it for what it was worth once Marvel got back on the band wagon, but even I, the biggest X-Men fan you can find, am wondering how many freakin' books can they throw at us. And, like many have pointed out, the likeliness that any of us will remember anyone from this new squad in a few years is little to none. Not that I'm writing anything off at this point, and some of the current X-Books are looking pretty good so far, but my meter is already close to mutant burnout levels.

For the change part, that is natural. Unless your really really old, whatever version of X-Men you are most accustomed to is probably significantly different from a previous version. As for the forgotten part well I got no defense there.

On a side note, I have been re-watching every episode of the original X-Men animated series starting with episode 1 on Disney+ and man I miss that series. It makes me miss that time period not only for the show itself but the comics most those episodes where based on.

I have the final two episodes of season 5 to watch. After that I plan to move on to Spider-Man.

Don't knock it. The fact this book will be quickly forgotten is probably its only redeeming feature.

I'm all for new characters, and I'll definitely read this, but I can't say I'm all that enthused about another intentionally derivative group of characters. Sidekick-inspiration or not, at least little Gambit, Cyclops, and Nightcrawlerare pulling a little too heavily from the source material for my liking. There are plenty of classic sidekicks out there who have their own distinct styles. Batman and Robin, anyone? Tick and Arthur?

Anyone want to place bets on character names? I'm thinking Seraph, Marvel Boy, Balor,Dusktoddler, and Maneuver.
