Marvel’s X-Men fans have been eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the mutant saga, and now, the wait is almost over. Marvel has indicated that early 2024 will mark the closing chapter of the Krakoan Era for the X-Men, and a newly announced series adds clarity about what’s to come. Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Luca Maresca will launch the new miniseries X-Men: Forever this March.
Delving into Lingering Mysteries
The four-issue limited series X-Men: Forever promises to delve into the significant lingering mysteries of the groundbreaking status quo for mutant kind. Shared initially at Italy’s Lucca Comics and Games Festival, Marvel’s press release shares the first issue’s cover and cites explicitly “the quest for Dominion, the interpersonal conflicts of the Quiet Council, the escape from the White Hot Room, and of course, the divine intervention of the Phoenix,” as parameters for the journey to come. This series aims to resolve these complexities and close out the more tumultuous plot threads from the previous Immortal X-Men series.
Spring 2024’s Growing Line of X-Books
The announcement of X-Men: Forever is part of a larger landscape of new and ongoing X-Men series set to be released in early 2024. It will join other new series such as Dead X-Men, Cable, Resurrection of Magneto, and the remaining ongoing books X-Men, X-Force, and Wolverine. The growing line of X-Books is a clear sign that Marvel’s X-Office won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
A Tragic Loss and Immortality
The news of X-Men: Forever also brings the official announcement of the end of Immortal X-Men. The series, which focused on the flawed government of Krakoa and the resurrection protocols, will be coming to a close. This announcement hints at a tragic loss, even with the promise that the X-Men are forever. The final chapter of Immortal X-Men will lead to the beginning of X-Men: Forever, leaving fans with high hopes and expectations for what’s to come.
