Dazzler, Lila Cheney And Nimrod Return To X-Men and X-Factor In May

Once upon a time in Uncanny X-Men, Nimrod came to town. First appearing in 1985, he was a time-travelling robot from the Days Of Future Past time and modelled after Captain Britain's The Fury. An indestructible, adapting and self-repairing mutant-hunting machine, he caused quite a bit of bother. Most recently we saw a version of the futures in Powers Of X, with Nimrod the Lesser in the near future and Nimrod the Greater in the far future, created by a combined human effort called Orchis. This led the X-Men to destroy Orchis.

It is later revealed that Director Killian Devo of Orchis had completed work on an unknown component installed inside the torso of a Nimrod unit that is in the initial stages of construction.

The mastermind behind the current X-Man era, writer Jonathan Hickman continues to evolve the X-Men mythology in the pages of X-MEN along with artist Francesco Mobili.

While in X-Factor, it is the much-requested return of disco diva Dazzler, last seen providing party effects for House Of X, and rock star Lila Cheney, the intergalactic teleporter who might have a role in the teleportation-focussed SWORD as well? Certainly, she should be handy to place Krakoan seeds all over the known universe…
