The X-Men have had a rough few years, going back all the way to House of M, but 2017 might be the year they turn it around in a big way (depending on how their war with The Inhumans goes). Later this month, Marvel re-organizes its rosters of X-Men within the pages of X-Men Prime #1, a one-shot dedicated to establishing the new status quo of books like X-Men Gold, X-Men Blue and Weapon X.

The big selling point of the one-shot is the return of Kitty Pryde following her stint in the Guardians of the Galaxy and taking her rightfully earned place as the leader of the X-Men. X-Men Prime #1 also looks set to continue the adventures of the time-displaced X-Men as they grappled with the new and improved Danger Room, plus a new incarnation of the Weapon X program means a number of its survivors will have to band together to stop it from hurting anyone else.
