X-Men Black Isn't A New Series - It's An Entire Line of Villain-Led Comics

when it was teased last week, fans understandably assumed x-men black was a new series starring magneto. after all, marvel is currently publishing three color-themed x-titles (though x-men blue and gold are nearing their final issues), so the idea that a new team led by the mutant master of magnetism just made sense.

this... was not the case.

at its x-men panel at san diego's comic-con international, marvel revealed that x-men black is actually an entire line of one-shot comics, rather than a single series, with each title headlined by a major mutant villain; each issue will feature back up stories focusing on apocalypse written by lonnie nadler and zac thompson.
