The X-Men are about to face a huge challenge in the upcoming AVENGERS VS. X-MEN crossover. There's no telling who will survive but it looks like we might be seeing a new team coming in July. Marvel has released the following mysterious teaser:

2242948-xtreme_xmen.jpg

If you're going to WonderCon, you can find out more Saturday, March 17 at the Talk To The Hat panel, 4:00PM PST.

Do you think the choice of pink means anything?

Oh God no. I still have horrible memories of the first X-treme run. I love the X-men to death and they are the reason I still read comics to this day, but enough is enough. Even I'm getting a little sick of the overexposure. Oh and I'll bet Wolverine leads this team too.

haha another x-men title...marvel just doesnt know how to compete with DC's 52. theyre starting to lose their minds that they cant pass the top twn spots on the top comics board so they figure the way to do it is make various avengers or xmen titles then make an avengers vs xmen event lol marvel your just not good enough to beat DC :p

Yeah, I'm guessing since Generation Hope's getting cancelled this would be the book to fill in the void, though, i was hoping for them to bring back the New X-Men but this is just as good, EVEN BETTER.

It's been said before but I just wish Marvel would stop trailing stuff before they've even done their big event. We're still waiting for A v X and yet we already have them showing us that there will be a 'new' Captain Marvel, a X-person wedding and now a supposedly new X Team.

I already think that they do too many books about too many Avengers and X-men. Yet at the same time they use some characters again and again (hello, Wolverine!) while not using some characters I'd like to see more of (Adam-X. where are you???)

Hope this book features X characters that haven't been seen for a while Beak, Angel (the other one), Forge? and Sage, have been mistreated as characters like Bishop and under used characters of the X-francises like Professor X, Armor and Hepzibah

It would also be good, if Jean does come back, if she went rouge from both X-Men teams and started a new team with a few familiar faces (like the characters I already mentioned) but mostly completly new characters (if thats possible now that SW is back and can give mutants there powers back)

My other theories are:

  • That the it will feature the same cast as the original book
  • It will be a flashback series (could fit in with the theory above)
  • It will be set in and alternate timeline (fingers crossed it will be DoFP)

Also, not sure why people are complaining about the amount of X-Title's that there currently are, this isn't adding to the number. Generation Hope is getting cancelled so a BETTER TITLE BY FAR is replacing it's spot.

EDIT: I've counted at least 13 X-Men related titles. Correct me if I'm wrong though. Not even Batman has that many at DC.

Because it's still an absolutely ridiculous amount.

You have NO IDEA that this is going to be a better title. For all you know it's written by Bendis and drawn by JR JR. You don't know the creative team. You don't know the cast (other than the fact that you HOPE Storm is going to be on it). You know literally NOTHING about this book, other than it's title. It's far too early to judge anything about this book, other than the level of excitement and curiosity that people have towards it.

Errr this is probably something lame like the 'neutral team' at some point Scott and Logan come to an agreement and they will "lend out" members from either side to best deal with the threat....I don't know why but I do see Marvel thinking that idea would be cool.

Stop assuming. This title was a BETTER TITLE BY FAR than Generation Hope is/was when it was still getting published, IMO. The fact that Marvel is supposedly bringing it back after 8 years excites me to no end. And for your information, I NEVER stated anywhere that i knew what the creative team would be or of what's going to be in it's pages, as you said, it's called excitement. The amount isn't ridiculous, look at how many mutants there are in the MU, granted the majority have been depowered but you don't expect their lives to be contained in 4 books, do you ?

Isn't Generation Hope getting cancelled? This is probably taking it's place or at least going to the blue side. That side needs some help pretty badly.

Not even surprised about the whining. Never change internet comic fans.

If you're referring to the past incarnation of the title, then I misunderstood your original post (and fail to see how the past title has any relevance here, as that's not what's getting published this time around). If you weren't referring to the past title, which this statement lead me to believe:

Generation Hope is getting cancelled so a BETTER TITLE BY FAR is replacing it's spot.,

then my point still stands.

And for your information, I NEVER stated anywhere that i knew what the creative team would be or what of what's going to be in it's pages, as you said, it's called excitement.

I never said that you said that. I was merely saying that you were assuming that it was going to be a far better title than Gen Hope. Without information like the creative team and cast, that's a pretty wild assumption.

Being excited and hopeful is one thing. Making broad generalizations like Gen Hope is getting replaced by a far better title is something else entirely.

I enjoyed the first extreme series, hope this is at least as good as that one. I guess this is replacing Gen. Hope so basically we got the same number of titles (9, the list above forgot about Astonishing).

Do we know the writter and artist? A poster said it would be Bendis and JR JR, if this is true, it will partially ruin it for me as I never liked JR JR and I think he's overrated because he can draw quick.

 1/2. I was merely saying that you were assuming that it was going to be a far better title than Gen Hope. What makes you think that i knew this was going to be a better title that Generation Hope, I'm talking about the quality it had back when Chris Claremont was writing it, not what's going to happen to it in a couple of months. Seeing as how i am, it proves relevance to me because personally, I'm a big fan, evidently it doesn't to you. 
 
3. read above.
 
4. Like i said before it's called excitement, for someone like you who clearly isn't a fan of this book, or ever was, you wouldn't know about it or what I as a fan am feeling, things are different and this still relates to the quality of this title back in 01. 
 
A lot of people make broad generalizations, Generation Hope wasn't exactly one of the best titles to start off with, it's getting cancelled because of it's appeal to certain customers who pre-order the book beforehand and what not, the same may happen to X-Treme X-Men given it's creative team which may be good or may not be, but if I as a strong fan want to make wild assumptions like that without knowing the full fact's, it should not bother you.

As this book is replacing Generation Hope I'm going to say it's going to compries of young Mutants that mostly have a "I don't give a funk" attitude, kind of like Red Hood and the X-Men.

  • Uncanny X-Men
  • X-Men
  • Generation Hope (cancelled)
  • New Mutants
  • Wolverine and the X-Men
  • X-Men: Legacy
  • X-Factor
  • Uncanny X-Force
  • Wolverine
  • Astonishing X-Men (joins wolverine's side with issue 48)
  • X-Trem X-Men

so it has 11 the same as Batman

But it has mini series as well like Alpha and Omega, X-Club and Magneto Not a Hero

so yes Marvel are milking the x-men for all they're worth especially with damn near every one of em being double shipped.

I would have no problem with this if they were all one issue per month but I don't think I'll be able to keep up with the x books with the constant double shipping and the fact they now have this event which will probably need all those bloody double shipping avengers books to understand.

It's very simple, marvel are taking the p**s out of us by charging $3.99 for most of these book as well. do they think we're literally made of money?

I agree that it does feel like they are overexposing the x-men with too many titles, and even though Wolverine is one of, if not my all time, favorite characters he gets too much focus, but, if Jean Grey returns thanks to Avengers VS X-Men, maybe this can be her own team, seperate from Cyclops or Wolverine's teams. She has been out of it for a while, she'd definatley need time to figure out her place in this world, but, she is and always will be an X-Man and a hero. Heres hoping its a decent title.
