Remember Saturday mornings back in the day when there was only one show that was not only fun and exciting, but also – rare at the time – fairly accurate to the source material? Yeah, baby, I’m talking about “X-Men: The Animated Series,” and a golden era of animation so cool it even inspired hip hop nerdcore. Now, finally, that same flavor and excitement is coming to the comics pages, meet after the jump for more about X-MEN ’92 #1!
New York, NY – March 3rd, 2016 – The X-Men of yesteryear are back this March! Spinning directly out of last year’s smash-hit Secret Wars series, they’re slashing and optic blasting their way into their very own ongoing series! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look inside X-MEN ’92 #1! Writers Chris Sims & Chad Bowers return and they’re bringing artist Alti Firmansyah (Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde) along for the ride. Get ready as Marvel’s merry mutants roll back the clock to a time when the pouches were big and the action was X-TREME! Cassandra Nova has been defeated, but she was just the beginning. Omega Red has resurfaced, and he’s bringing the Soviet Super Soldiers with him! Their mission? Destroy the recently re-opened Xavier’s School for Gifted Children! And that’s just the first issue True Believers! Don’t miss one minute of the action when X-MEN ’92 #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices this March!
