What happens after Jean Grey rises from the dead in Phoenix Resurrection? X-Men: Red apparently. Marvel has announced the third color-themed mutant book for February, the first two being X-Men: Blue and X-Men: Gold. While Blue and Gold are named after the classic X-Men teams from the 90's, Red is the first time this team has been associated with the color.
Injustice writer Tom Taylor will be writing the series and will be joined by artist Mahmud Asrar. Both creators have worked on X-Men characters, with Taylor writing All-New Wolverine and Asrar drawing All-New X-Men. Artist Travis Charest will be doing the series' covers and judging by the first one, these are going to be gorgeous.
Taylor expressed plenty of excitement over the book, which is always good to hear. The writer did plenty of good work on All-New Wolverine, so hopes are high for this series:
"The time is right for an X-Men book like this, and I'm very excited about the story we're telling in these pages. I'm excited for Jean Grey's vision for the world, and I can't wait for Marvel readers to meet our team of established fan-favorites and brand new mutants, and to see them in action."
Adult Jean Grey is the only confirmed member thus far, though Taylor did promise established fan-favorites and new members. Jean is also sporting a new costume that looks similar to her old attire from the 90's, which most fans will remember from X-Men: The Animated Series. It will be interesting to see her lead the group and how Matthew Rosenberg's Phoenix Resurrection sets this up.
X-Men: Red hits comic shelves on February 7. Phoenix Resurrection, the possible prelude to the series, starts in December and ends in January.
