The first look at Exiles #1 reveals one very important piece of information: Don't call the Kamala Khan of the future "Ms. Marvel."
Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Javier Rodriguez re-introduce the X-Man known as Blink to the Marvel Universe (and readers) by introducing her to Khan, an older version of the currently young member of The Champions. The former Ms. Marvel has obviously seen her share of hard times, as she's apparently leading a band of rebels in a post-apocalyptic future when Blink stumbles across her. And while we already know the pair will eventually team up to save the Marvel Multiverse, they're getting off to a rather rocky start.
"Exiles is my take on a classic Marvel 'misfit' team book, powered by the endless possibilities of alternate timeline craziness," Ahmed said in a statement. "Sort of What If? meets classic X-Men, with a bit of Quantum Leap tossed in for good measure. It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also the human story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the world(s).”
