    Marvel Launches Women-Only ‘X-Men’ in April

    By Graeme McMillan

    Marvel Comics has announced a new X-Men title launching in April that spotlights the female members of the team. Yes, finally, a book dedicated to some of the many X-Women who have won fan hearts for years! The X-Women who have dominated the franchise since the Chris Claremont days! Obviously, then, this book celebrating X-Women is called X-Men.

    The gender-confused name doesn’t bother writer Brian Wood, who told USA Today, “I feel like as far as the X-Men go, the women are the X-Men. Cyclops and Wolverine are big names, but taken as a whole, the women kind of rule the franchise. If you look at the entire world as a whole, it’s the females that really dominate and are the most interesting and cool to look at. When you have a great artist drawing them, they look so amazing and always have.”

    The great artist in this case is Olivier Coipel, whose amazing cover for the first issue reveals the line-up for the book’s opening arc: Storm, Rogue, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Grey, Psylocke and Jubilee. Yes, Jubilee, most recently seen as a vampire as a result of Marvel’s failed attempt to cross superheroics and the Twilight demographic in “Curse of The Mutants” and related storylines; not only is she a surprise addition to the team, she also happens to be the book’s central character (Wood admits, though, “I don’t want to make it the ‘Jubilee and friends book.’ They’re all A-list characters - I’ve got to make them all shine”).
