Preview: "Young X-Men" #1 hits the shelves April 2

Official Press Release

In the wake of Messiah CompleX, there are no more X-Men…so just who are the Young X-Men? And why has Cyclops sent them after the newly formed Brotherhood? Enter Young X-Men #1, from rising-star scribe Marc Guggenheim (Amazing Spider-Man), fan favorite artist Yanick Paquette and red hot cover artist Terry Dodson! Cyclops' newest team of mutants has been tasked with one mission-eradication of the Brotherhood-and these new mutants are about to learn a hard truth about life after Messiah CompleX! As old allies become deadly enemies, this team of former New X-Men and new recruits must navigate the treacherous waters of a world where every mission could be their last! An X-Men: Divided We Stand tie-in, this series helps lay the foundation for the future of mutants and comes wrapped in a stunning variant cover by the sensational Brandon Peterson! Plus, just wait till you see the shocking last page reveal of the new Brotherhood!

"This is the latest in the streamlining of the X-Books," says X-Editor Nick Lowe. "Following Messiah CompleX we wanted to make sure that ALL the X-Books were firing on all cylinders and Marc and Yanick do their part." This isn't your run of the mill teen comic book, though. "The floor is littered with teen super-hero books and we know it. All the stops are pulled out for this one-tons of surprises, a rich tradition, a tight tie to X-Continuity and more intrigue than you can shake a stick at. As well as big consequences for some of your favorite teen mutants (and not just the ones on the cover)!"

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Young X-Men, as the Divided We Stand tie-ins continue to sell out and generate buzz from all corners! Now that the Young X-Men have been brought together, can they accomplish their mission? Or…should they? Find out in Young X-Men #1!
