Jonathan Hickman’s two new X-Men series launching in July (see “Preview: Marvel July Covers and Synopses”) will lead the way to a new X-Men universe as all other X-Men books are canceled between July and September to make way for the new storylines, Marvel announced today. Plans for the new universe have been underway since last summer, Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski revealed on Twitter, with stories in all of the existing X-Men titles (“from X-Men Blue/Yellow/Red to Disassembled to Age of X to Major X to Uncanny”) leading up to House of X and Power of X this July (see “Paired Hickman X-Men Series Launch in July”).
After House of X and Power of X, Hickman will write a new ongoing flagship X-Men title with multiple titles and creative teams flanking the ongoing series. Hickman described the new line. “Some [books] will be traditional fare, some carry through on ideas presented in HOX and POX,” he said. “Some books are completely new concepts.” Marvel will reveal plans for the new X-Men series at San Diego Comic-Con.
