Jonathan Hickman returns to Marvel. Prepare to witness the Children of the Atom evolve again.
Marvel announced Hickman’s new projects HOUSE OF X and POWERS of X at C2E2 at their Next Big Thing panel. Hickman will be joined by artists Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva and colorist Marte Garcia. The news came with a promo piece by artist Mark Brooks chronicling X-Men history and sure to start speculation over Hickman’s plans for the mutant heroes.
“We are excited to have Jon back with the Marvel family, and we could not have asked for a better creative team to help usher the X-Men into a whole new era,” says Marvel Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski. “While we can’t reveal too much about the story just yet, these new stories will redefine the X-Men and their place in the Marvel Universe. This is a historic moment both new and passionate fans won’t want to miss.”
After destroying and rebuilding the Marvel Universe, what will the acclaimed writer to do the X-Men?
Hickman wrote FANTASTIC FOUR, FF starring the Future Foundation, SECRET WARRIORS, SHIELD, AVENGERS, NEW AVENGERS, the INFINITY event and SECRET WARS.
Hickman’s influence can be seen in Marvel television and films. Several of his SECRET WARRIORS arcs have translated to AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D. The Black Order jumped from page to screen in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.
Hickman’s reveal follows this ominous teaser in last week’s new comics:
“When two aggressive species share the same environment, evolution demands adaptation or dominance.”
Could this signal a renewed war between mutants and humans with X-Men pitted against other hero teams again?
