This April, with Saladin Ahmed on writing and Javier Rodriguez on art... Exiles is back.

The man once known as Nick Fury is now simply the Unseen, who can only observe Earth from the moon. When a mysterious threat casts its shadow on the multiverse, his job is to recruit champions who can save it. Blink’s goal was once to save the world with the original EXILES, and now, she’ll need the help of Khan, Iron Lad, Wolvie and a mysterious to-be-revealed team member to help her fight an even more sinister evil.

“EXILES is a two-fisted, big-hearted wild ride of a book about a diverse team of alternate universe Marvel heroes banding together to stop a dire threat to the multiverse. Sort of WHAT IF? meets classic X-Men,” teases Ahmed. “Grizzled old Kamala Khan! Disgustingly cute cartoon Wolverine! It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also new-reader friendly—a self-contained story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the !@$# universe.”

Iron ManLad's nose is back!

Big honkin' spear? Guessing a quickly back from the dead Jane Foster or Dani Moonstar...

In a twist, Khan's post-apocalyptic home will turn to just be a New Jersey.

I know I should let Exiles Mimic go....but damn it I loved Calvin. Everytime I see something like this it gives me hope.

Right there with you. Get me the originals back, at least so somebody can un-Claremont the disaster that were the later issues, and I'll be happy. Show me what happened with Nocturne and Thunderbird's baby, and I'll be happy.

Not crazy about using Iron Lad as a hero considering that he, you know, murdered young Vision in cold blood

Kamala looks a lot like Rogue here

This is Exiles, and we're talking about Iron Lad AKA young Kang. It could be an alternate universe Iron Lad. Or an Iron Lad who hasn't done that yet (and maybe never will thanks to time travel shenanigans). Or it might even be someone else in the armor using the Iron Lad identity. There's plenty of ways to keep having Iron Lad as a hero.

I'd rather just bring young Vision back tbh

*looks at writer's name, starts crying*

C'mon. Just one sequel to "Throne of the Crescent Moon." Just one. C'mon...

See, it's a good thing the writer says that's Grizzled Future Kamala because... she don't look that grizzled.
No scars, no missing eyes, not even any wrinkles.

... and it may be a knee-jerk reaction and all but... not liking Clarice's new look.

It's Kamala. Grizzled she might become, but grim? Never.

I'm reminded of a line in a book I read some time ago where the protagonist meets someone who hails from (a) future and asks about herself and how she is there.

"Your smiles are not as wide. But your eyes are as kind."

I think she has a scar on her right cheek, we can't see her eyes so maybe one is missing...

And she has a big gun; that counts as grizzled doesn't it?

It counts as Mildly Grizzled.
For a proper Grizzled effect, one has to have at least one metal limb, a facial scar / missing and / or damaged eye, and a perpetually dour demeanour.

She has a facial scar, a big gun and some pouches, but she's not quite at full Grizzled yet.
(Still, this is just a promo image.)

I was cynical when I heard his, remembering how Jeff Parker’s run got cut so short, but dammit, Mini Marvels Wolverine has got me hooked. Although if it had been Elephant Steve I would have been even more hooked.

I was wondering about the Exiles during Secret Wars, seemed like it's what they were trying to prevent from happening

Miguel really could have used their help in Spider-Verse too.

As much as I loved that series, maybe they weren't great at their jobs.

That's part of what I loved about Exiles (esp the Winick run), they were all like mid-level superheroes who were competent but frequently out of their depth. And they're all non-franchise characters so they were free to surprise us by being gay or failing morally or starting relationships without corporate approval or dying, that book had really high stakes damn it was good

Also yeah the way they treated Spider-Man 2099 2 was gross

Now that's a top tier creative team! And on a super hero team I wanted back.
That's great!

On the down side, I don't dig Blink's new look, especially the haircut. And the only thing worse than another alternate Wolverine is an alternate Wolverine who looks like an annoying mascot.

Is that Bullpen Bulletins / Mini Marvels Wolverine? Awesome!

She's just going by Khan, huh?

Has the William Shatner, Khan yell been used against Ms. Marvel ever? I remember when I was reading the book I kept expecting it, but then I dropped all my Marvel books when they revoked the free digital copies and haven't kept up.

First Marvel announcement I'm interested in in ages. (They much more regularly keep cancelling my comics.)

This looks cool, getting back to the what-ifs!

I liked the last Exiles mini at first, but then it got into trying to define the backstory with Kangs and such and I don't care.

Same effect. Backstory retcons or exposition remain one of the things I am least-interested in in exiles! The series was at it's best when they didn't have a home base, they were just traveled around like it or not.
