Announced over the weekend, and well documented in several places, I am the new writer on X-Men and Ultimate Comics: X-Men. The first time in history, according to Marvel, that a person has written two ongoing X-books, one in each universe.
That’s Kitty Pryde, from Ultimate, with a new costume I created (and Jorge Molina made into reality) to reflect some significant changes to her character. I can’t get into a lot of story detail, at least not beyond what’s in those links, but I’ll bulletpoint some of the key stuff:
• In the Ult title, Kitty becomes the focus of the title, and puts her front and center of a sort of mutant resistance relative to the troubles they’ve been having in that story to-date. I’d call her a Joan Of Arc character if that didn’t suggest all sorts of religious connections that don’t exist. Maybe an atheist Joan Of Arc. Wait, but Kitty’s Jewish. Ok, moving on.
• On the X-Men title, I’m taking the “security team” label to heart and pushing it as far as it’ll hold. On the Marvel panel over the weekend Arune called it an espionage book which is pretty accurate, although perhaps not so literally a “spy” book. It uses a lot of the trappings of that genre. If I had to define it in broad, simple strokes I would say it owes something to the legacy that books like The Authority and the (original) Ultimates created.
