After finding some major nostalgic success with the throwback Secret Wars tie-in, Marvel Comics is set to debut a proper new X-Men ’92 series at the end of this month.
The new run will spin directly out of last year’s limited run, with writers Chris Sims and Chad Bowers back, along with artist Alti Firmansyah (Star-Lord & Kitty Pryde). The series tapped into the look and feel of the beloved 1990’s animated series, and is set in a variation of that universe, with all the big hair and neon colors you know and love. Think the general idea behind Batman '66, but more X-Men-y.
Here’s the synopsis for where the plot will pick up:
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!
The debut issue is set to hit comic store shelves on March 30.
