With the original five members still missing, a new team of mutants steps up in Marvel's X-Men Blue #25.
Artist Jorge Molina's cover for the issue, released this afternoon with the Marvel Comics solicitations for April, depicts Polaris flanked by Jimmy Hudson, Gazing Nightshade, Daken, Xorn, and the Bloodstorm. Jimmy Hudson, Wolverine's son from the Ultimate Universe, joined the team in X-Men Blue #5, followed in Issue 12 by Bloodstorm, the vampiric Ororo Munroe from the Mutant X universe.
It's unknown whether this new lineup will stick around for a while, or if its appearance in the series is only temporary.
