“I feel like as far as the X-Men go, the women are the X-Men. Cyclops and Wolverine are big names, but taken as a whole, the women kind of rule the franchise. If you look at the entire world as a whole, it's the females that really dominate and are the most interesting and cool to look at. When you have a great artist drawing them, they look so amazing and always have.”—Brian Wood on X-Men, his new ongoing that will star an all-female team led by Storm. The book will center on Jubilee as protagonist and will also feature Rogue, Rachel Grey, Kitty Pryde, and Psylocke.
Fiirst Look: Wood and Coipel's X-Men #1
It’s no secret that I’m pretty excited for X-Men #1 the all ladies book by Brian Wood and Oliver Coipel. Wood has proven that he is not just a great comic writer but a terrific writer of female characters. The book lands on May 29 and Marvel has sent along this description along with these unlettered pages:
An old enemy shows up at the X-Men’s door, seeking asylum from an ancient evil come back to Earth. Meanwhile, Jubilee has come home, and she’s brought with her an orphaned baby who might hold the key to the Earth’s survival…or its destruction! With an imminent alien invasion and an eons-spanning war between brother and sister around the corner, Storm steps up and puts together a team to protect the child and stop a new threat that could destroy all life in the Marvel Universe!
