Mike Carey may be the best X-Men writer right now as he continues his amazing run on X-Men Legacy with an anniversary issue that ushers in a new direction. Not only that, but some space-bound X-Men return to the fold as well. Here’s a little preview along with the issue description from Marvel:
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the giant-sized anniversary issue of X-Men Legacy #250, from New York Times best-selling author Mike Carey and acclaimed artists Khoi Pham and Steve Kurth! The X-Men have returned from the Age of X – but what undetected evil has followed them back from the twisted reality that never was? It’ll take a whole new team of mutants led by Rogue and Magneto to prevent this new villain from laying the team to waste. Then, because you demanded it, Havok and his team make their long-awaited return in an all new story! But what are the secrets behind their absence and what does their re-emergence mean for the X-Men? It’s a new team, new direction and new era when Mike Carey gives the Children of the Atom a fresh set of marching orders this June in X-Men Legacy #250!
