Marvel has announced an X-Terminators limited series set for this summer. Bleedingcool reported news of this X-Men limited series last week, and now Marvel has confirmed it to be true. Writer Leah Williams and artist Carlos Gomez are headlining this series. Working together, the duo will take four of the toughest X-Men on a ride they will never forget.
Who Is In The X-Terminators Limited Series?
This limited series focuses on Dazzler, Jubilee, Boom-Boom, and Wolverine during a wild night out. In the announcement, Marvel shared what to expect from this summer series. Taking inspiration from grindhouse films, Williams and Gomez are giving the new X-Terminators a night they will never forget. Jubilee, Boom-Boom, and Dazzler are kidnapped and placed in elaborate death traps. With just their powers of explosion, how will they get out of such a predicament? Readers can be sure it will involve plenty of fireworks, time bombs, and brawling like never before seen in the history of the X-Men.
What Else Can You Tell Me?
Williams shared her excitement at how “gleefully transgressive” this X-Men limited series is. She tells Marvel that the book is “sexy, stupid, and chaotic.” One of her favorite memories from making the X-Terminators limited series involves a potential warning label. Williams shares that she was asked if they needed a “Parental Advisory [sticker] for this book, or just T+ [rating].” She is leaning towards the Parental Advisory.
Meanwhile, artist Carlos Gomez is “eager to be working on X-Terminators with Leah.” He shared that she is “an incredible writer and always delivers fun and engaging stories.” He goes on to share that the series is very action-packed. Plus, he is happy to be back in the X-Family.
The X-Terminators team has had several rosters throughout X-Men history. X-Factor, Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman, and Marvel Girl initially used the name. They adopted the name to remain in disguise for public and political reasons. The X-Terminators name was also used by Boom-Boom, Rusty Collins, Rictor, Skids, Wiz-Kid, Leech, and Artie Maddicks. That team was formed from the events of Inferno.
