If any others arrive I will edit them into this same piece.

Marvel Reveals Jean Grey’s “X-Men Red” Team!

While we love sharing the monthly first issues that are coming from the various publishers, we also get a lot of new title launch announcements here at the Media Command HQ and I figured that it’s a good idea to share them with you all. This one shares the insight on the upcoming “X-Men:Red” series which is a new team led by Jean Grey, The Phoenix. Let’s take a look.

The Press Release:
Last week, Marvel announced the continuation of Jean Grey’s story with X-MEN RED, a brand-new series written by Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine) with art by Mahmud Asrar (All-New, All-Different Avengers Generations: The Unworthy Thor & The Mighty Thor). Today, Marvel is excited to reveal the heroes who will accompany the omega-level telepath as she battles against one of mutantkind and mankind’s most dangerous villains!

“We’ve also got one more fan-favorite hero joining the team in this first arc,” says X-MEN group editor Mark Paniccia. “As the threat level escalates, Jean needs to build a highly specialized team…not just those she trusts, but allies who can survive the oncoming storm.”

*** end of transmission ***

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Despite my hesitation to snag a whole bunch of the variant covers, I’d like to see how the rest of these get presented. I’ve always loved the near omnipotent force that was The Phoenix and it’s great to find the original character returning to the Marvel Universe. The timing is perfect for the character since she is going to be the main premise of an upcoming X-Men film which is appropriately titled “X-Men: Dark Phoenix”. Now they’ve only shared a small batch of the covers which is why the post only has that many visuals. I will try to secure some more as time goes forward. What do you readers think of these? Are they on your interest list? Let me know down in the comments section below. Until next time.,
