We've heard two big announcements so far! What else happened at New York Comic Con's X-Men Regenesis Panel?!
The two biggest announcements from Marvel's X-Men panel were a new Age of Apocalypse ongoing from David Lapham and Christos Gage taking over X-Men Legacy. Click the links for more details.
Another "big announcement" is the death of Deadpool, which should be happening in Deadpool #50, and will most certainly be a permanent status change. We also found out that Brian Wood will be writing a five issue miniseries called Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha and Omega.
So what else did we learn? Uncanny X-Men writer Keiron Gillen says that Uncanny X-Men will have a big focus in the coming year as the X-Men try to become the premiere super hero team in the Marvel Universe. Abnett and Lanning will continue on New Mutants, and promise lots of kissing and hormones for the slightly creepy 40 year old readers of a teen book. Generation Hope will continue to focus on Sebastian Shaw.
Fans of Jubilee can keep up with her exploits in X-Men, while readers of Astonishing X-Men will be treated to some interesting meetings between X-characters who might not interact in any other books. In particular, there will be some interesting "interactions" between Storm and Cyclops. A big milestone event is coming up in the form of Wolverine #300, which will feature a sneak peak at the upcoming work from Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi which features the return of Sabretooth! And if you can't get enough Wolverine, you can pick up X-23, which will guest star Hellion, and Daken: Dark Wolverine, which will guest star the Runaways!
Speaking of guest stars, Havok and Polaris will be joining the team in Peter David's X-Factor, which should please fans of the nineties series. Don't worry though, the tone will remain true to the current, noir X-Factor. Except, with more Wolverine, as he will be hiring the team for a case. The end of the Dark Angel Saga in Uncanny X-Force is too big to spoil, but we do know it will spin off into the Age of Apocalypse book mentioned above.
