'X-Men' #1 Variant Covers Assemble a Team of Mutants No One Would Dare Mess With

Check out new covers for Jed MacKay and Ryan Stegman's 'X-Men' #1.

Following Krakoa’s fall, it’s a dangerous time to be a mutant in the Marvel Universe. Luckily, Cyclops will step up to lead a formidable new team in Jed MacKay and Ryan Stegman’s X-MEN #1.

Launching in July, X-MEN will be the first of three flagship titles set in the X-Men’s From the Ashes era. Mutant business is their business as the first X-Man makes it his mission to keep hope alive for the species—by any means necessary!

Cyclops’ group includes some of his most trusted soldiers like Psylocke, Magik, and Beast, the brightest of the next generation including Kid Omega and Temper, along with powerhouses like Magneto and Juggernaut. Raising a flag of defiance at their new base in Alaska, everyone in the world will soon know that if they want to go after mutantkind, they’ll have to go through them first!  

Today, fans can see three new variant covers for the debut issue, including a group shot by celebrated X-MEN artist Tony Daniel, a character spotlight by J. Scott Campbell that will also be available as a virgin variant cover, and a hidden gem piece by the legendary George Pérez, whose iconic depiction of Beast during his time with the Avengers inspired Stegman’s own take on the character!
