Claremont Reveals The New Generation Of X-Men In GeNext!

You asked for it X-Fans and now the series voted for on Marvel.Com is here! Enter the extra-sized GeNext #1 (of 5), from legendary X-Men scribe Chris Claremont and artist Patrick Scherberger, introducing you to the children of the X-Men-but who are they? And what’s happened to the original X-Men? Packed full of extras including character design sketches with commentary from Claremont and more, this issue is a can’t-miss for X-Fans!

"I think people are going to get a kick out of this new generation of X-Men that Chris and Patrick Scherberger have created," said Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. "They’re students expected to carry on the legacy of their forefathers and foremothers, but they’re also kids with aspirations of their own. What’s life like for a mutant in a world where most of the original X-Men are long gone? The story plays to Chris’s strengths in character development and Patrick’s art has an energy that makes this series really pop. It’s fun and tugs at your heart as the drama of these five very special young people unfolds and surprises."

After 30 years of conflict and chaos, it’s time for an all-new, all-different X-Men-but can the X-Men’s children live up to their parents’ legacy? Find out in GeNext #1!
