Marvel Comics announced X-Men Legends #1, the first book in a new series that revisits classic X-Men era plotlines.

Marvel is headed back to the heyday of X-Men to publish all-new in-continuity stories as well as resolve a few dangling plot points with their new series X-Men Legends. This series also brings back some of the great talent from the era to work on new tales such as Chris Claremont, Louise Simonson, Fabian Nicieza, Larry Hama, and Peter David. The first book in this series will tackle the rumored connection that Cyclops and Havok have with the possible elusive third Summers brother, Adam-X. The mystery of the third Summers brother was first started in X-Men #23 (1993) by Mr. Sinister when he randomly teased that there could be another one in addition to Scott and Alex.

X-Men Legends #1 will be written by Fabian Nicieza with art by Brett Booth, and will arrive in February.

Marvel will also release King in Black in January (see "Preview: 'King in Black' #3 and Tie-Ins Covers").
