Black Bolt writer Saladin Ahmed and Daredevil artist Javier Rodriguez will launch a new ongoing Exiles series starring a whole host of returning characters. The new series will revive the concept of a team from across multiple timelines with a twist – this time, the team is in the employ of the Unseen, a.k.a. the original Nick Fury.
The new Exiles team consists of Blink, Iron Lad of the Young Avengers, a future version of Kamala Khan, a chibi-style cartoon version of Wolverine, and a mysterious, unrevealed fifth member.
“Exiles is a two-fisted, big-hearted wild ride of a book about a diverse team of alternate universe Marvel heroes banding together to stop a dire threat to the multiverse. Sort of What If? meets classic X-Men,” said Ahmed in a statement. “Grizzled old Kamala Khan! Disgustingly cute cartoon Wolverine! It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also new-reader friendly - a self-contained story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the !@$# universe.”
The first issue is due out on stands April 11.
