Storm Loses The Mohawk For X-Men: From The Ashes

X-Men: From the Ashes is Marvel's 2024 relaunch of the X-Men line of comics after the end of Krakoan Age, and currently includes X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, Exceptional X-Men, NYX. Phoenix, Storm, Wolverine, X-Factor, X-Force and now Dazzler. On more solo titles, Brevoort stated "I've felt like a lot of the X-Projects over the past several years have felt just a bit random to me… their casts seem to have been assembled based on who happened to be around and available rather than any relevance to the concept of the series. (Roger Stern had a name for books like this, where the characters were bent out of alignment in order to support a concept that wasn't relevant to them: "fake books". ) Plus, I think there are any number of X-Characters who have proven themselves popular and certainly capable of floating a series of their own where the focus can be more tightly on them rather than them being part of another temporary ensemble."
