The folks at IGN has finally revealed the variant cover for the new upcoming X title New Mutants #1 and it’s looking pretty cool. Back in the team are former New Mutants members, Sunspot, Moonstar, Magma, Doug and Warlock. Still can’t remember if Karma was part of the original team. I’m pretty sure that Magik (Ilyana Rasputin) was a member though. Of all the X-Men characters I have the most psychedelic memories of her. I read her Magik miniseries in the Eighties, the one where she was trapped in Limbo with the Demon Belasco and that was one head trip. It’s also the reason why Magik is one of my most favorite X-Men.
An interesting addition to the team is Prof. X’s son, Legion. The last time we saw him was when he ushered in The Age of Apocalypse. It will be interesting to find out how a super mutant like Legion who is deranged has been allowed to join the team. Rumors are that he’s actually instrumental in reforming the New Mutants.
Can’t wait to find out.
