A roundup of the X-Men news from C2E2 - not as much news as in some other places, but undoubtedly that's because of "Second Coming" still being only in the early stages.

Both CBR and Newsarama have roundups of the panel.

The "X-Men vs. vampires" stuff, only vaguely talked about, is the first arc of a new X-Men series by Victor Gischler and Paco Medina; they included two contrasting promo images (covers?) which I've put together here:



Nice looking. There's another image by Adi Granov:



Notably, Emma's in both, which would seem to go against speculation that her ticket is about to get punched in "Second Coming".

Conversely, Cable and Nightcrawler are so fucking dead.

Elsewhere, another mysterious promo image for a relaunch of X-Force, which will come in October (so, a few months between the end of "Second Coming" and the start of the new volume), written by Rick Remender, and dealing with Apocalypse. Enjoy another mysterious promo image:



Top one would pretty clearly be Angel/Archangel, I think.

And finally, probably the most concrete news, a reorganization of the Wolverine sub-family of titles, and it all seems surprisingly logical to me:



Logan's had at least two titles for a while, and there are currently three:

- Dark Wolverine (formerly Wolverine), which is now Daken's book, written by Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu.
- Wolverine Origins, also by Way.
- Wolverine: Weapon X, by Jason Aaron, the best Wolverine book easily.

Wolverine Origins has reached the end of its planned arc, and is ending, so the reorganization effective in September will be:

- Wolverine, by Jason Aaron, relaunched from Weapon X and now the sole Wolverine solo title.
- Daken: Dark Wolverine, the renamed Dark Wolverine, by the same writing team as before.
- X-23, by Marjorie Liu (she has an interview on it here).

Only one solo title for Logan, and it's the best one, to boot. Marjorie Liu is definitely the female writer on the rise at Marvel these days, now with three ongoing titles planned (one of those co-written).

I think this is their attempt to completely misunderstand their market cash in on the vampire craze. So like a couple of years ago every cover had a zombie variant, now every cover will have a vampire variant.

. . . Or at least I really hope so. The last thing the Rogue/Gambit pairing needs is more melodrama.

Seconding this. He's seemed pretty beefy in all of the post-Second Coming promos we've seen so far.

Stupid question but anyone have an idea/opinion as to what should happen to a Vampire Cyclops when he steps in to the sun, considering his optic blasts are meant to be powered by sunlight? (at least they were the last time I checked.)

Does Cyke burst in to flames like normal vampires or do his optic blasts have the "power of one million exploding suns" ?

The stupid reason for the stupid question: I've been toying with the idea of a vampire day walking Cyke as a fanfic idea for a solid year now, unfortunatley the most I have managed to write is one paragraph...

I doubt he'd get more powerful..the vampire reaction is a weakness to sun.

However, he's been shown to absorb energy from other sources. Vampires have blood and mystic-y energy.

Might fix his eyes too.

Why are we relaunching X-Force? I don't think the current run has broken past the 30's and I don't think a new team is a good excuse to start the numbers over. I wonder if the new X-force will be used for crossovers every 5 minutes like the old one was.

Regardless, it looks like X-force is going to be replaced with X-23 on my pull list.
