From Marvel: “MUTANTS VERSUS VAMPIRES, PART 1: When a suicide bomber strikes in downtown San Francisco, it gets the immediate attention of the X-Men. But this is not your garden variety terrorist – and he’s not acting alone. Vampires from around the globe are descending en masse on the City by the Bay, staking a brutal claim for the patch of land the X-Men call their home. What is their agenda? Who is their mysterious leader? The X-Men are about to find out, as they brace themselves for a war of the species that will wrack the Marvel Universe.”

On sale July 8, 2010.

Marvel rolls out another X-Men series. Is it about time or a case of overkill?

And if you haven’t picked up the issue, make sure to read the preview, linked next the series title above.

  1. ‘Second Coming’ isn’t even over and we’ve launched into a new (and unnecessary) X-Men series dealing with Vampires.

    Vampires? Really?

    Am I missing something here?

    I wish Marvel would stop with the events and get back to solid story telling.

    Just my two cents.

  2. Absolutely wasteful. If you wanted to make a team book then take X-Men: Legacy and put it back to X-Men. And the whole vampire thing, I believe Marvel screwed themselves when they did the whole M-Day deal. Not only did they reduce the number of mutants down but they kept the majority of the hero ones empowered. What threats do they really have left to deal with? They did zombies with X-Necrotia. Now Marvel is bringing in vampires. Up next, werecreatures. And after that, mummies or possibly aliens. I would personally go with the evil twins from an alternate dimension. Then we can see all the X-Men with goatees.

  3. I just want my real Jubilee back and not this fangy abomination.

  4. I hope Jubilee doesnt stay as a Vampire after this. I dont mind the vampires since the story will only last this arc and move on.
