Planet-Size X-Men Announced by Marvel Comics

No Comments

Forget about Giant-Size X-Men. Marvel is getting ready to deliver Planet-Size X-Men this summer. The publisher has announced a brand new event that will not only reveal a new X-Men team but will chronicle “a single night that will go down in Marvel Comics history.” 


Writer Gerry Duggan (MARAUDERS, SAVAGE AVENGERS) and artist Pepe Larraz (HOUSE OF X) are behind Planet-Size X-Men #1. The special double-issue will kick of the event in June. Marvel also promises that this will be one of “the most pivotal chapters yet in Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men era.” All told, it will encompass twelve different titles in the Marvel Comics lineup. 


Marvel said the following in its announcement. 


“This June, the Hellfire Trading Company invites readers everywhere to the inaugural Hellfire Gala as they announce the first team of Krakoan X-Men to the world—and reveal the startling plans that mutantkind has in store for the Marvel Universe.” 


Details are currently slim. Marvel has not revealed which books will be involved in the crossover. We do know that the publisher let readers vote on who would be one of the new members of the X-Men team. That will be just one of the secrets unveiled within the pages of the event. 


“Make no mistake—this is an X-Men book drawn by superstar artist Pepe Larraz. It is absolutely the most important issue of the month,” editor Jordan D. White said. “Pepe is absolutely the star of the X-line and he is doing the most amazing work of his career. You cannot miss this.”

“Wait until you guys see the Hellfire Gala covers. Jumbo Carnation and his elves have been busy at Hellfire Bay. June is gonna be nuts. We’ll talk about it all in July, “Duggan teased on Twitter following the announcement. 


Cover art for the book has also been revealed, which we’ve included for you to check out below. 


Marvel Comics did a massive revamp on its X-Men lineup following the Disney/Fox merger. Marvel had been going light on X-Men titles while Fox held the movie rights to the characters. That has since changed. With the mutants poised to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe fold, Hickman led a bold re-launch of the series in 2019 with House of X and Powers of X. Meanwhile, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has promised that a reboot of the characters on film is on the way as well. 


Planet-Size X-Men #1 hits shelves on June 16.
