X-Treme X-Men Returns to Marvel Comics With Original Creative Team

Legendary X-men writer Chris Claremont is returning to the franchise once more, this time to revive the fan-favorite series X-Treme X-Men. 

Marvel revealed the news at Comic-Con's Retailer Panel, confirming that Claremont and artist Salvador Larroca are both returning for a new five-issue series that picks up where the original left off in 2004.

X-Treme X-Men was one of Marvel's three flagship X-books in the early 2000's, alongside Grant Morrison's New X-Men and Chuck Austen's Uncanny X-Men. 

X-Treme distinguished itself by taking a more global approach to the X-Men, with Storm spearheading a team that operated away from the confines of the Xavier Institute.  

The new series looks to revolve around Kitty Pryde, who is dealing with a psychic attack from her old nemesis Ogun & reunite the X-Treme gang  to deal with this renewed threat. 

“I’m very happy to be teaming up with Chris again to bring back the adventures of the X-Treme X-Men!” Larroca said in Marvel's press release. “It’s been a long time and I’ve missed this team and this book that I consider a child of mine...

...I hope fans enjoy what we’re doing with this new run--there’s lots of new histories to tell. This is the book that Chris Claremont fans have been waiting for and I’m proud to once again illustrate his awesome plots. Let’s make this an instant classic!”  

X-Treme X-Men #1 is slated for release in November 2022.
