Remember my odds on who would take up the teased mantle of the new Captain Marvel? Well it seems my #1 pick, Carol Danvers aka Ms Marvel has pile-driven the competition to take out the role - getting some new threads and a mop-chop to match! Writen by Kelly Sue DeConnick, with the stunning artistic team of Dexter Soy (interiors) and Ed McGuinness (covers), Captain Marvel #1 launches this July.
The other announcement was of a return for X-Treme X-Men. Don't let the title fool you though, this won't be the return of the jaw-droppingly good series by Chris Claremont and Salvador Larroca, that redefined Rouge and saw the 'death' of Psylocke, but rather a series more down the lines of Marvel's former title Exiles.
Written by Greg Pax and illustrated by Steven Segovia, X-Treme X-Men will centre on Dazzler, as she teams up with the steampunk-ish Emma Frost from "Ghost Box", Howlett and Kid Nightcrawler from Pak's Astonishing X-Men, and others, to defeat the greatest threat yet to all their universes. It too is released this July.
