Marvel has announced two new flagship series for the Children of the Atom launching in Spring 2017: X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold.

The titles are part of Marvel’s ResurrXion event that includes new solo series featuring Cable, Generation X, Iceman, Jean Grey, and Weapon X (see “Marvel Teases 'ResurrXion'”). Marvel editors Mark Paniccia and Daniel Ketchum shared information on the direction and tones of the upcoming series as mutantkind exits the events of Inhumans Vs. X-Men (see “'Inhumans Vs. X-Men'”).

According to Panniccia, the books will feature “(t)he same stuff that made these stories and characters we love so much stand out time and time again. Crazy cool adventures. Awesome super powers. Groundbreaking science fiction and heartbreaking romance. And the element of surprise. “

“These new titles won’t cast the X-Men as members of a species fighting for their survival but rather as big, bright, colorful super heroes who want to demonstrate to the world that they want to walk with them hand-in-hand into the future,” Ketchum added.

The editors offered hints about the themes of the books as well. Generation X will focus on the X-Men school and will feature Jubilee.  Weapon X will be a dark, boundary pushing book. X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold will feature all-star lineups and will focus on “classic heavy-hitter X-Men, doing what they do best,” Ketchum said.
