EXCLUSIVE: Wood & Anka’s “X-Men” Face Ghosts in New Story Arc

by  in Comic News Comment

Monday’s All-New Marvel Now teaser from Marvel Comics promised a “Resurrection” in February 2014 from writer Brian Wood and artist Kris Anka, and CBR News can exclusively reveal what project the image was promoting: A new three-issue story arc titled “Ghosts,” starting in “X-Men” #10.NOW.

While it’s not yet exactly clear what “Resurrection” has to do with the arc, it is known that the new Sisterhood — introduced in “Muertas,” the arc starting with this month’s “X-Men” #7 — are involved. While Lady Deathstrike’s presence was revealed this past July at Comic-Con International, Typhoid Mary and Enchantress are both also part of the group — neither characters typically associated with the X-books. The group doesn’t start there, with an unnamed powerful villain — “the most powerful of them all,” according to Marvel — sought out by the Sisterhood, described as “an enemy who holds the X-Men responsible for her almost-destruction.” (The “Muertas” story arc, originally solicited six-issues, has been broken up into two three-parters — “Muertas” and “Ghosts.”)
