This March, the smash-hit series begins a new semester in Wolverine and the X-Men #1 – from critically acclaimed creators Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar!
Summer School is in session as world-famous mutants Wolverine, Storm, and more must educate and train the Marvel Universe’s next generation of X-Men! All-powerful inexperience mutants with the power to level cities. What could go wrong? Plus with Fantomex and Quentin Quire joining the staff – the Jean Grey School is in for a wild ride!
But with X-Men’s own lives riddled with deadly enemies and personal crises, how can they hope guide the next generation, when they can barely defend them! A new enemy lurks in the shadows, ready to strike at the heart of the Jean Grey School. And this new organization will test the faculty and students of the JGS like never before!
If you thought the inaugural year of the Jean Grey School was crazy – you ain’t seen nothing yet! The X-Men of tomorrow have faced dangers unlike any other, but they’re not ready for what comes next.

This March, Wolverine and the rest of the Jean Grey School charge forward into All-New Marvel NOW! in Wolverine & The X-Men #1, the bombastic new series from the blockbuster creative team of Jason Latour and Mahmud Asrar!
If you thought the inaugural year of the Jean Grey School was crazy – you ain’t seen nothing yet! The X-Men of tomorrow have faced dangers unlike any other, and it’s not going to get easier any time soon. Summer School is in session, with new dangers, new faces…and is that Quentin Quire as a teacher?!?!?
As we’ve seen this first year or so of the Jean Grey School has been a hard road. As a result we’ll begin with a lot of the teachers and students sitting on the edge of their seats just waiting for the bell to ring. Those that are left are the teachers and the kids who basically have nowhere to go. Headmasters Wolverine and Storm are spending the summer with Quire and Evan and Idie. The kids who are among the most potentially powerful and dangerous mutants alive.
In them we could be witnessing the growth of the next GREAT team of X-Men, or the creation of the biggest threats the Marvel U will ever see.
And with Fantomex joining the staff, what could possibly go wrong? Get ready for an explosive new start for the Jean Grey school this March in Wolverine & The X-Men #1 – if they survive that long!
