X-Men Legends, the series where X-Men’s most celebrated creators return with new, in-continuity stories set during their classic runs, is back this May with an all-new #1! Coming on board to launch this extraordinary new era of the series will be industry pioneer Roy Thomas. The writer behind some of the X-Men’s most memorable Silver Age adventures will pen a new story set after his final issue and before Giant-Size X-Men. Teaming up with artist Dave Wachter, Thomas will revisit the early publication days of one his greatest co-creations–WOLVERINE!
Having redefined the merry mutants in two seminal runs on the book, Roy Thomas, at long last, returns to the saga of the X-Men! For the first time, readers will get new insight into Wolverine’s government missions before his recruitment by Professor X (including unrevealed details on his battle with the green goliath in the iconic Hulk #181-#182). This untold episode will also star Beast and a host of missing mutants, and reveal the secret behind Wolverine’s costume!
Face front, True Believers! Get ready for an all-new volume of X-Men Legends with legendary creators and stories covering the length and breadth of X-Men history from the early eras to fan-favorite latter day sagas! Featuring covers by Kaare Andrews, Dan Jurgens, and Niko Henrichon!

And this February, Chris Claremont, the writer behind the franchise’s most influential works, will make his mark on the series in X-Men Legends #12. His long-awaited debut on the title will see the writer step back into his unparalleled run on Uncanny X-Men in a story set before the start of another one of his iconic works, Excalibur.

In order to stop her partner from making a grave mistake, Destiny will have to recruit Nightcrawler and Shadowcat who, injured as they are, must dig deep to find new strength and do what is right as the last X-Men standing!
