There was a time in the 1980’s where the X-Men were thought dead to the world & another team formed around some of their mutant members and became very popular. In 2018, that team returns.
Marvel Comics has announced that in January the original Excalibur team of Captain Britain, Nightcrawler, Rachel Summers, Kitty Pryde and Meggan will reunite in X-Men Gold Annual #1. Along for the ride is the teased new child of Brian Braddock (Captain Britain) and Meggan.
Regular series writer Marc Guggeheim will be joined by Leah Williams (Secret Empire: Brave New World) as a co-writer with Alitha E. Martinez (Black Panther: World of Wakanda) on board for the art.
“Since the launch of ResurrXtion, fans have been wondering when the classic Excalibur team would come together again,” said series editor Chris Robinson. “With this Annual, Marc, Leah, and Alitha have painstakingly put together a love letter to them and the classic series we’re all still talking about!”
The original Excalibur series was co-created by Chris Claremont, the man behind the X-Men world for much of the 70s through to the start of the 90’s, and Alan Davis with Davis returning now to provide a cover for the Annual that homages his original Excalibur #1.
X-Men Gold Annual #1 arrives in Jaunary.
