Marvel today released a new video teasing the future of the X-Men under the guidance of writer Jonathan Hickman.
“The reason why I’ve been hired to work on a book is to do my version of the book,” Hickman says in the video. “If not, I’m just a writer who’s writing the most neutral, generic version of the archetypal version of the X-Men. I think it’s important for me as an artist, as an author, as a writer to do what my version of it is.”
Hickman goes on to say that while his version of the X-Men will be distinctly his own, it will build on the continuity that has come before it.
House of X #1 and Powers of X #1 go on sale in July.
