Marvel continues to roll out new series as part of their Marvel NOW! initiative and the newest teaser image is for a new series by writer Brian Wood (Conan, Star Wars) and Olivier Coipel (Thor, Avengers Vs X-Men).
There’s not a lot that can be gathered from the image. Judging by the double X and the double helix, we can guess that this is a new X-Men series featuring a team of women. This is just speculation on my part, but it helps to know that Wood is the current writer on Ultimate X-Men, and just came off a run on the main Marvel U X-Men series. He’s also known for series that feature strong female characters, such as Local, New York Four, and the just launched Mara. From all this, it seems like a natural fit for Wood to write a series about a group of the female X-Men.
Wood said via his twitter account and his tumblr page that “this is something I’ve been working on to one degree or another since last June.”
We’ll have to wait for an official announcement from Marvel to find out exactly what this latest teaser means, so we’ll let you know when that happens.
