In September, Marvel released its December solicitations, which promised to begin lifting the veil of mystery currently shrouding the company's revamped world of X-Men comics. However, the solicitation information for X-Men #4 and New Mutants #4 has since been changed.
Originally, the solicit for Jonathan Hickman and Leinil Yu's X-Men #3 and 4 read, "The most powerful heroes of the dominant species on the planet, the X-Men rise to protect the world against any threat. From a new foe in the Savage Land to an old nemesis' surprising return..."
The new solicitation text can be found below:
- Written by JONATHAN HICKMAN
- Art by LEINIL FRANCIS YU
- Cover by LEINIL FRANCIS YU
- MUTANTS ARE THE FUTURE!
- The Krakoan leaders attend an economic forum to show the humans what real power looks like.
For New Mutants #4, the solicitation originally stated Hickman and Rob Reis would be helming the book. Titled "THE EXPLOSIVE RETURN OF CANNONBALL!" the description read. "The team has reached the Shi'ar Galaxy only to find the empire in turmoil! Deathbird returns and she won't let Bobby and Sam get in the way of what she wants!"
The updated solicitation is below:
NEW MUTANTS #4
- Written by ED BRISSON
- Art by MARCO FAILLA
- Cover by ROB REIS
- When Armor and her team set off to bring their friends home to Krakoa, they thought it'd be an easy sell and a quick trip. Then everything went sideways, and now they're in serious trouble --looks like it's time to call in the cavalry. But will that be enough to turn the tide?
X-Men #4, by Jonathan Hickman and Leinil Francis Yu, and New Mutants #4, by Ed Brisson and Marco Failla, both go on sale in December from Marvel Comics.
