First Posters For ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Spotlight New And Old Xavier And Magneto

X-Men "Days of Future Past" poster -- exclusive image


This weekend's X-Men: Days of Future Past panel at Comic-Con featured four actors who play two mutants: Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy, who have portrayed Professor Charles Xavier in four combined films, and Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender, two actors who've starred as the mutant revolutionary Magneto. Following that, in a clever bit of advertising, 20th Century Fox has released the first two promotional posters for the upcoming X-Men: First Class sequel, with one being a split image of Stewart and McAvoy's respective Xaviers, and the other showcasing McKellen and Fassbender. You can check them both out below.

Mutant Women of Earth: How Chris Claremont Reinvented the Female Superhero


This April Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel launch a new X-Men title with a roster of Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Psylocke, Rachel Grey, Rogue and Storm. That the team is all-female is unusual for a series that isn't defined along gender-lines. What makes the roster extraordinary is that it's an all-star line-up. These are first draft X-Men, and the book could easily have added more top picks -- Dazzler, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Magik, Mystique -- and still been all-female.

It's hard to think of any other superhero team with such a strong bench of women, and it's especially hard to think of another team where so many female characters rose to prominence within the team itself. What these characters have in common is no mystery; they were all written by Chris Claremont, the man whose name is synonymous with "strong female characters."

The 10 Goofiest Panels From ‘X-Men: Mutant Genesis’


This week, "Mutant Genesis," the storyline that ran through the first few issues of Chris Claremont and Jim Lee's '90s "X-Men" series, gets the deluxe hardcover treatment from Marvel.

To say that these issues were popular when they were coming out is underselling it quite a bit: "X-Men" #1 holds the record for the best-selling single issue of all time with over six million copies sold...
