Get yourself ready to hop through Marvel Comics multiverse with the fan-favorite purple skinned teleporting X-Men member Blink.
Marvel Comics has officially announced the return of the early 2000s comic book series Exiles, with a brand new series from Saladin Ahmed, Javier Rodriquez, Alvaro Lopez, Jordie Bellaire and Joe Caramagna. Brought together by Nick Fury Sr., now known as the unseen, this team will be led by Blink, Iron Lad, Wolvie, Khan and a mystery team member.
The man once known as Nick Fury is now simply the Unseen, who can only observe Earth from the moon. When a mysterious threat casts its shadow on the multiverse, his job is to recruit champions who can save it. Blink’s goal was once to save the world with the original EXILES, and now, she’ll need the help of Khan, Iron Lad, Wolvie and a mysterious to-be-revealed team member to help her fight an even more sinister evil.
“EXILES is a two-fisted, big-hearted wild ride of a book about a diverse team of alternate universe Marvel heroes banding together to stop a dire threat to the multiverse. Sort of WHAT IF? meets classic X-Men,” said Ahmed. “Grizzled old Kamala Khan! Disgustingly cute cartoon Wolverine! It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also new-reader friendly — a self-contained story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the !@$# universe.”
Originally the Exiles series ran for 100 issues from 2001 till Chris Claremont ended the team in 2008 to launch The New Exiles which ran for 18 issues. Jeff Parker and Salvador Espin briefly revived the series in 2009 but it ended after just six issues.
This new Exiles series arrives in April.
