Marvel has announced that legendary creators Louise Simonson and Walter Simonson will be returning to the X-Men franchise this April as they team for an all-new in-continuity story set during their original run on X-Factor in the pages of X-Men Legends #3.
Starring the original X-Men now defending the world as the mutant team X-Factor, X-MEN LEGENDS #3 will take place just before X-Factor #43. Having defeated Apocalypse, X-Factor now uses his mysterious sentient spaceship Ship as their base of operations. But when Ship begins to malfunction, they’ll realize Apocalypse’s true plans are just beginning to unfold. Don’t miss a rematch decades-in-the-making when the full breadth of this iconic villain’s original motives are finally revealed!
X-MEN LEGENDS will be a title like no other. Revisiting key runs throughout X-Men history, X-MEN LEGENDS will feature other greats such as Chris Claremont, Fabian Nicieza, Larry Hama, Peter David, and more returning to the X-Men mythos to tie up loose ends, resolve longstanding plot danglers, and uncover long hidden truths that will shake up the past, present, and future of Marvel’s mutant super heroes.
X-Men Legends #1 will go on sale in February, with X-Men Legends #3 arriving in April.
