The week of X-Men ResurrXion news continues with the announcement that the new Generation X will be written by Christina Strain with art by Amilcar Pinna. The book features Jubilee leading and mentoring a team of students consisting of Bling, Eye Boy, Quentin Quire, Nature Girl, and Benjamin Deeds, plus a new character named Nathaniel Carver. It launches in Spring 2017, alongside X-Men Gold, X-Men Blue, and Iceman.
Brian K. Vaughan, Adrian Alphona and Christina Strain's Runaways has been an obvious choice for live action adaptation since it first debuted in the early 2000s. The tale of a group of teens who discover their parents are supervillains and go on the run has the potential to be a huge hit, and this week it was announced that Hulu has ordered the Marvel property to series under the supervision of the creators of Gossip Girl.
But who are The Runaways? They haven't been a team in comics for quite some time, and haven't had an ongoing series in even longer. We've put together a Crash Course to make you a Runaways expert in no-time.
