Brian Wood Launches All-Female X-Men Series

The series launches in April.



Source: USA Today

USA Today announced that Brian Wood and Oliver Copiel will be working on a new female X-Men series in April.  The series, which was hinted at in last week's "XX" teaser, will star Storm (still with a mohawk), Psylocke, Jubilee, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Kitty Pryde. 

According to the USA Today article, the series will focus on Jubilee and will feature Sublime, Sentinels and a threat from outer space. 

This marks the latest Marvel NOW! series that focus on female characters.  Uncanny X-Force and Fearless Defenders also focus exclusively on women characters.

They're going to call it "X-Men"?

Since he's Canadian, I wouldn't exactly classify him as a man.

I prefer my idea of a Xavier/Xemnu the Titan buddy book. XX : Hair today, gone tomorrow.

I might buy this. Though I kinda wish X-23 wasn't on Avengers Arena and be on this. Just for the character's interactions with Rachel, Jubilee, and Psylocke.

Too many X-books. Seriously, this title is tempting to me, but you just know that there'll be some asinine crossover soon and you'll have to get all 5,756 other X-titles to know what's going on. Best just to leave it and be happy leading an X-free existence.

I'm curious too. Did she get repowered or not? Did anyone get repowered or is it strictly new mutants after the last Phoenix bruhaha?

I'll probably get this just for the sweet sweet Coipel art, but just like Fearless Defenders, the 'all-female' team doesn't really make sense to me, there better be a damn good in-story reason for a group of only women X-Men (To be fair, Defenders has that, but there are only so many before you get to ridiculous things like a villain who can psychically control penises or whatever) to band together, otherwise this just seems like giving in to ridiculous internet whiners.

There are like, 200 X-Men, there's no reason for all of these ones, most of whom are starring in other comics too to band together just because comics just discovered 'girl power' 15 years too late.
