The Press Release:
Announced in an exclusive interview with IGN, Fabian Nicieza will be launching a new Juggernaut series this May with artist Ron Garney! Amidst all the smashing, Juggernaut will be trying to find his new place in the Marvel Universe and the series will explore his outlook towards mutantkind’s new status quo that Jonathan Hickman introduced last year in HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X.
“That basically instigates the entire story. Having been X and lost, what does Cain become now? After years of back and forth and madness and sadness, he had become a member in good standing of the X-Men, and then while he’s away dancing in Limbo, mutantkind gets everything they could have ever hoped for… and Cain can’t be a part of that,” Nicieza told IGN. “How he reacts to that rejection becomes the exploration of who he is going to become without the one thing that — for good and bad — has defined him for most of his life.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: From the description this sounds like it might be an interesting title, and I’d be happy to peruse the first issue when its on the racks this May. I might not be purchasing the individual issues straight away though since May will begin my own person financial distress couple of months. Its during May and June that every one of my most important birthdays and anniversaries happen and my cash will be assigned to other items. Considering that almost all the mini-series get collected editions these days I might just wait but I do like the Juggernaut as a character. I’ve not read any of the heroic adventures and mostly recall him as a Super Villain but hey let’s see what Mr. Nicieza brings to the table. As I close this one up I wonder what you think about the news. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will be back soon with even more stuff.
