After returning from the dead in the current Phoenix Resurrection series, Jean Grey is launching her own team in March’s X-Men: Red and the telepath is looking for a bit of Cajun spice to complete that team.
Marvel has announced in a press release, that X-Men: Red #3 will see Tom Taylor and Mahmud Asrar adding the explosively charming New Orleans thief Gambit to the roster of their X-team. He’ll stand alongside the previously announced group of Nightcrawler, Namor, Wolverine (Laura Kinney), Honey Badger (Gabby Kinney), the Wakandan mutant Gentle and a new character named Trinary.
Gambit joins just in time to help Jean’s team take on one of the X-Men’s old foes.
“Things have heated up with attacks on mutants across the globe,” said series editor Mark Paniccia. “We know that one of the X-Men’s most powerful villains is behind the chaos, but will Jean, Nightcrawler, All-New Wolverine and Honey Badger have a chance to stop the next deadly wave? A favorite Cajun mutant might be able to tip the scales in their favor… but at what cost?”
X-Men: Red #3 arrives in April.
