ASTONISHING X-MEN-New Roster And Creative Team

I honestly don’t even think this is note worthy enough to announce but alas in this business we must report even what we could care less about once a black superhero is involved. After our Cyclops Kisses Storm storyline wraps the book will be taken over by Marjorie Liu and artist Mike Perkins. Marjorie was the writer on recently cancelled X-23.  The new roster will include Warbird, Northstar, Gambit, Iceman Kama and home girl Cecilia Reyes. Nothing was stated about Cecelia’s role in the book other than:

Liu spoke briefly on the first issue, saying that there was a theme of moving and movement. “We’ve got Northstar moving back to New York and he’s going to be living with his boyfriend, Kyle,” she said. “Another side of it, we’ve got characters like Cecelia and Gambit circling each other and [Gambit] moving into his own apartment in Westchester.” The first issue will settle in the team and introduce the villains, the Marauders.

To top it off Cecilia isn’t even on the cover released so don’t get your hopes up!

UPDATE: At least we know now she apparently sided with Wolverine during Schism.
