The X-Men were originally second stringer characters when Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created them back in 1963. It was canceled after a few years. When Marvel Comics resurrected the title, they became the Marvel’s marquee characters, and easily the biggest selling comics of the ’80s and ’90s.
In the last few years of comics they have put the beloved mutants through the wringer – they got de-powered, lost their school/home, their leader Cyclops went psycho, and they all eventually had to live in another dimension due to a deadly Inhuman plague. The X-Men started to barely resemble the team everyone who grew up with them loved.
Now Marvel is planning to go back to basics with the X-Men universe, and is relaunching the titles under the banner of “ResurrXion.” Among the titles are X-Men: Gold, featuring a retro ’80s line-up that includes Old Man Logan, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, and Rachel Grey; and X-Men: Blue, which features the original five members, or at least the teenage versions of themselves, brought forward into the present day and under the guidance of Magneto.
There’s also a new Generation X, featuring Jubilee; a Weapon X series featuring the deadliest mutant killers, as well as ongoing series for Cable, Iceman, and Jean Grey. Both Old Man Logan and the All-New Wolverine, best known to fans of the movie Logan as Laura/X-23, will continue their current numbering under the ResurrXion banner. Now Marvel has released a special ResurrXion trailer, which features the ’90s X-Men: The Animated Series theme, and which is sure to hit all your nostalgia buttons. by Eric Diaz
