While the Marvel NOW! initiative isn’t being called a reboot–the terminology they’re going for is ‘relaunch’–this one seems the most like a reboot out of the most recent batch of titles. Comics Alliance have confirmed that the Marvel NOW! teaser ‘Killers’ was a reference to an all new “Uncanny X-Force” comic book series. The comic will be written by Sam Humphries with Ron Garney serving as the artist.
But who will be on the team? CA talked to writer Sam Humphries about the series and he spilled the beans…
“The group that we start off with right off the bat is Psylocke, Storm, Puck and Spiral, and we have a few more characters joining the group in the first few issues. In my mind, all those characters are wild cards. They’re all strong personalities, they’re all strong in terms of their powers, they’ve all got dark secrets and they’ve all got a rebellious streak. That to me is a really attractive part of the book, being able to balance all those character dynamics at once.”
The new series launches in January of 2013. Will you be picking it up?
