With just days until House of X #1 hits store shelves, Marvel announced six brand-new ongoing series with a suite of all-star creative teams to take mutantkind further than they’ve ever gone before, kicking off with X-Men, Excalibur, Marauders, New Mutants, Fallen Angels, and X-Force!

Announced at Marvel’s Next Big Thing panel at San Diego Comic-Con, these new series will build directly from the universe-shifting events of House of X and Powers of X.

These new series will kick off the first phase of Jonathan Hickman’s massive multi-year plan for the X-Men, redefining everything the world knows about mutants and their place in the universe. As the perfect jumping on point for new and long-time X-Men fans, these extraordinary series will change everything – with only more to come in the months and years ahead…

Jonathan Hickman’s House of X and Powers of X Kicks off a Whole New X Line at Marvel

Jonathan Hickman revealed some details today about his upcoming series, House of X and Powers of X. Those begin in July, running through September, as all of the current X-titles come to an end.

Hickman will reshape the mutant world forever leading in to all new series, some traditional and some new, afterwards. The planning has gone well in to 2020 as far as what we can expect as far as the first two waves of releases.

Hickman’s start is a symbolic flag planting of continuity for Marvel’s X-line of comics which have wavered in the past few years with numerous starts, stops, and creative teams. The message is clear, “this is a whole new era for the X-Men. This is what we’re doing now.”

This is also an era where the X-Men film rights are back at Disney, something Hickman has hinted at as far as opportunities that X-line now brings to writers and Marvel.

Fans of the current series will see that the X-universe has been dovetailing to this new era, which will build from every major X-Men milestone since 1963 up through all of today’s fan-favorite X-Men series.

Following House of X and Power of X, a new X-universe will emerge, with Hickman leading the first phase with an ongoing flagship X-Men book alongside multiple new series and creative teams.

Some [books] will be traditional fare, some carry through on ideas presented in HOX and POX. Some books are completely new concepts,” said Hickman. More details about these books will be revealed at San Diego Comic Con later this July.

Marvel has also revealed covers for House of X and Powers of X issues #2 and #3 as well as new pages from each first issue!

House of X #2 and #3 is written by Jonathan Hickman with art by Pepe Larraz, colors by Marte Garcia, and a cover by Larraz. Powers of X #2 and #3 is written by Hickman, with art by R.B. Silva, colors by Marte Gacia, and a cover by Silva. Each series runs for six issues.

Marvel Reveals Upcoming Series and Covers for July

Today, Marvel released a special edition of The Pull List, unveiling exclusive information for titles coming to comic shops this July! The episode shared details on writer Jonathan Hickman’s new direction for the X-Men; trouble for Rocket in “Guardians of the Galaxy”; The Thing and Hulk clash in “Fantastic Four”; and new series “Punisher Kill Krew #1” and “Loki #1.”
