The Fire Still Burns As Cyclops Reignites Mutant Revolution In Jed Mackay And Ryan Stegman's X-Men


Jay Cochran - April 12, 2024
The fall of Krakoa will go down as one of the darkest chapters in mutant history, but Cyclops refuses to allow the X-Men to be victims. The first X-Man, mutantkind’s ultimate leader, and arguably the most brilliant strategic mind in the entire Marvel Universe, Scott Summers steps up to guide his species towards a better future in Jed MacKay and Ryan Stegman’s X-MEN.

Announced last month, X-MEN will be the first of three flagship X-titles set in the upcoming From the Ashes era. No longer living under the protection of Krakoa, it’s a dangerous time for mutants everywhere, and dangerous times call for radical action! Cyclops gathers a group of his most trusted and reliable mutant soldiers along with the brightest of the next generation to tackle the most prevalent threats to mutantkind, including an existential new enemy that rises out of the remains of ORCHIS. Prepare for a reckoning as this team handles explosive mutant-specific issues without restraint. Humanity can hate them all they want, as long as they fear them!

FROM THE ASHES! Krakoa is gone, ORCHIS has fallen...but the X-Men remain, always. Cyclops leads, because that is what he does. Beast builds, because that is what he does. And from their new home in Alaska, the X-Men raise a flag of defiance. Mutant business is their business. Join Cyclops, Beast, Magneto, Psylocke, Magik, Kid Omega, Temper, and Juggernaut as new forces in the world move into position, battling for the destiny and philosophy of the mutant species.

"Taking on the X-Men is always a daunting prospect, but I'm extremely psyched to take this team of mutants back into the world with Ryan!" MacKay said.

"When I first got into comics, drawing X-Men was THE job you wanted as an artist,” Stegman added. “To have the opportunity now is mind-blowing."

With three flagship titles and a host of additional satellite series, the upcoming From the Ashes era will present fans with a wide range of different approaches to the X-Men’s mission statement. Gail Simone and David Marquez’ Uncanny X-Men delivers globetrotting super hero adventures as the X-Men show the world all the good mutantkind can accomplish. Eve L. Ewing and Carmen Carnero’s Exceptional X-Men focuses on the trials and training young mutants need to undergo to survive in a world against them. Meanwhile, MacKay and Stegman’s X-MEN sees mutantkind flex their strength and keep hope alive by any means necessary!

Um, that cover's by ANDY Kubert.

Also, any idea where the art is from? It looks familiar, but I can't place it. Probably a pin up in an annual...

Is it just me, or does Cyclops look REALLY young on the Daniel cover?

I'm with most everyone else on this: intrigued but skeptical. The team is interesting I guess, the art should be good, but I've never read anything by Jed McKay.

Love the team. But a bit annoyed to see McKay taking thw helm. I always kinda like his take, but it never seems to really end up doing anything for me. His Moon Knight run started out interesting and he used some good villains. But now he, maybe, killed Marc. Introduced some meh characters that im supposed to like, but don't really care about. Idk, overall pretty lame. I should have been devastated by one of my top 5 faves "dying", but i felt nothing due to the writing. He doesn't seem to understand pace, or conversations. Same with his Avengers. Team dynamic is pretty bland, story looks huge and exciting on paper, but reads boring. I don't like the artist on the either, so that doesn't help. Both titles had been the first few titles I read after I get my pull forever, but since he came on they have stacked up a bit. I've been reading X Men and Spidey right away lately. So of course they just put Jed on to make it big, but it's gonna promise a lot and pay off a little.

This is the problem I have with the current Marvel landscape. All of the books feel incredibly boring and uninspired. The majority of the artwork (which is a HUGE part of this hobby for me) varies between mediocre and terrible. This may not be a popular opinion, but I miss the Dark Reign era. I miss Bendis. Say what you will about him, but Marvel Comics were NEVER boring when he was in charge of the Avengers franchise. The writers and artists were firing on all cylinders during this era, and the next Wednesday couldn't come quick enough. Every event from Avengers Disassembled, right up till Age of Ultron kept you on the edge of your seat. It really was a golden era. Everything since then has fallen flat. Marvel just feels like a shell of its former self.

Still not keen on this reactionary run. Marvel just love to keep mutantkind down.

I'm wondering why most of the teams (X-Force, Cyclops' X-Men, Emma's X-Men) have multiple telepaths? Are there more dangerous psychic enemies out there?

And yet the Uncanny team has none. Not to mention, Wolvie's team is mostly physical/stealth. No psychics, only one short range teleporter, and not even a "smart" character for science-y questions.

MeGrimlock78 - 2024-04-12 @ 8:34 pm

What's with Beast's eyes? Looking so goth!

I'm on the fence on this, but I hope it's good.

It sounds great! I really like the characters and teams and the art looks amazing. The thing that makes this seem like it's doomed to bomb is the writing teams. It's just the same boring repetitive people they've always ever used on every other failed series. Simply juggling these same clowns around to different books does absolutely nothing. It just means they're putting the same people self inserting and pushing their own idealism behind a loose story bunch of convoluted dialog and some very pretty art. I want it to be true that they really want to bring the X-Men back to its roots but they've done nothing to make it happen but simply shuffling the deck.

The last two ream reveals have been a little underwhelming imo, but this one....awesome! Juggernaught and Beast! I already have this team, minus Temper, set up in my livingroom! Pumped for this series!

Temper? Is that Indie's new codename?
