Is Matthew Rosenberg Getting An X-Book? – NYCC 2017 Speculation [UPDATED]

New York Comic Con have released their panel listings, so as I will be winging my way out to the States for the third time this year (my poor, poor arms) I decided to give them a gander and start making plans.

And that was when something jumped out at me. On the Friday of the convention, Marvel will be holding an X-Men panel called Marvel Legacy: X-Men. Here is how the panel is described on the site:

Welcome to the X-Men panel…hope you survive the experience! The X-Men have been catapulted back to the forefront of the Marvel Universe, and there's still more to come! Join Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso and creators Ed Brisson (Cable, Old Man Logan), Matthew Rosenberg (Secret Warriors), and Charles Soule (Astonishing X-Men) for an X-citing discussion about everything X-Men! PLUS, don't miss Ed Piskor's in-depth look at the past, present and future of the Marvel's merry mutants in X-Men: Grand Design!

Anyone else notice what seemed a little odd here?

Yes, Matthew Rosenberg, currently writing Secret Warriors, is listed as being on the panel about the X-Men. In the description, it even lists that as his only book with Marvel at the moment.

Rosenberg's Secret Warriors is ostensibly an Inhumans title. Every team member has been an Inhuman thus far. However, the X-Men have certainly made repeated appearances and, the next major villain of the series already hinted upon in the last issues, will be traditional X-Men villain Mister Sinister.

So is that the only reason he's there? Is Mister Sinister enough, or will Secret Warriors be mixing things up with more mutants?

Or, is Matthew Rosenberg getting an X-Men book of his own?

[UPDATE]: So Matthew Rosenberg took to twitter, to remind people about something apparently previously revealed about his Secret Warriors book.

Now, funnily enough, I was at the X-Men/Inhumans panel at SDCC (called the Marvel ResurrXion panel), and I actually don't recall Rosenberg actually being there at all.

Perhaps it was the Secret Empire panel or that Marvel True Believers panel they always have for subscribers?

At any rate, it would seem from his tweets that adding Magik and Mister Sinister into his Inhumans book is enough to include it on the X-Men panel at NYCC after all.
