One bit of news that came out of Marvel’s X-Men panel this afternoon is the next X-event: X Infernus.
Or perhaps it’s “Ex Infernus”; I’ve seen it both ways already. Marvel Marketing Manager Jim McCann referred to it as Inferno 2, so make of that what you will. (X-Men: Inferno was a company-wide crossover in 1989 that involved a demonic invasion of Earth, starting with New York City.)
The five-issue miniseries, which debuts in December, finds the horrors of Limbo unleashed upon San Francisco — new home of the X-Men. The focus this time won’t be on the entire Marvel line; instead the spotlight will be on the mutants and Illyana Rasputin, aka Magik.
“She wants her soul back and she’ll kill however many demons and people as it will take to do so,” Editor Nick Lowe told CBR.
C.B. Cebulski is writing the miniseries, but the artist hasn’t been revealed. David Finch will provide the covers.
