It looks like Marvel Comics will be unstoppable in May as legendary X-Men writer (or, if you're Rob Liefeld, guy who might as well have been the janitor) Fabian Nicieza will team up with legendary artist Ron Garney to launch a new Juggernaut series. Marvel revealed the details EX-X-XCLUSIVELY with compliant media partner IGN, but then helpfully summed the whole access journalism piece up in a press release on their own website:
A mystic gem. A force of overwhelming power. Nothing can stop the Juggernaut. Except himself. Another building falls…but Cain Marko is done letting others pick up the pieces of the things he's destroyed.
So how does this story begin? The spectacular scribe Nicieza told IGN exactly how. "After years of back and forth and madness and sadness, [Juggernaut] had become a member in good standing of the X-Men, and then while he's away dancing in Limbo, mutantkind gets everything they could have ever hoped for…and Cain can't be a part of that," he notes. "How he reacts to that rejection becomes the exploration of who he is going to become without the one thing that—for good and bad—has defined him for most of his life."
So in this new era for mutantkind, will Cain Marko become a hero? A villain? Something else altogether? Fabian has one answer.
So what do you think the target for number of X-men series published in May will be? Twenty?
