Quentin Quire isn’t just an annoying, insecure brat that declared war on humanity…he’s downright sadistic in Wolverine and the X-Men Alpha & Omega #1. The battle royale between headmaster and student begins today. And I will love hating Kid Omega even more.
Brian Wood returns to Marvel with this showdown between Logan and Kid Omega to see who will ‘rule the school’ with Armor caught in Quentin’s first strike against Logan.
2011 marked the surprise return of Quentin Quire in Jason Aaron’s X-Men Schism series and then Wolverine and the X-Men series. The rebellious teen is now a critical character and I can’t imagine not having him around to tick off Logan. How can Wolverine defeat an omega level telepath? I can’t wait to see what’s next.
In the final page of issue one there’s a message from creator Brian Wood saying that Quentin needs his own book and a reflection on his early work in the X-Men family. 2000 was his “first real work-for-hire writing job, co-writing with Warren Ellis on Generation X.”
This was when Warren Ellis led the Counter X relaunch of Marvel’s mutant titles. The Generation X lineup included Emma Frost, Jubilee, Husk, Chamber, and Monet with art by Steve Pugh. Ellis and Wood sent the kids away from the mansion on a cross-country adventure tracking down missing kids across America. Welcome back to the X-family and Marvel, Brian.
