This should be interesting. I might give it a try when it comes out.
This week, Marvel Comics teased "The First X-Men," a new project premiering in August. In a special press conference call, the publisher pulled out all the stops to explain what "The First X-Men" is, whom it involves and how it will affect the X-books and greater Marvel Universe. On hand for the call (moderated by Sales and Communications Coordinator James Viscardi) were legendary comic creator Neal Adams, writer Christos Gage and X-book editor Nick Lowe, who were set to tease the broad aspects of "The First X-Men."
Viscardi kicked off the call by introducing the participants and opened it up for the creators to tell the origins of "The First X-Men" as a series.
"I had these wonderful warm memories of Jack Kirby's 'X-Men,'" said Adams, who mentioned he had been on the book two issues before it had been cancelled. "At the beginning, Stan and Jack were just experimenting with things. Right at the very first issue, you have Professor X who is bald and in a wheelchair and these kids standing around them in costume and they are going to become the X-Men." Adams noted it seemed like readers were starting in the middle of the story rather than the beginning.
"Something must have happened before Professor X became Professor X," Adams said. "He could pass. He didn't look like a strange X-Man. He didn't look like a mutant."
