When Champions crosses over into War of the Realms, the team will have an old ally at their side (literally) - the adult Cyclops, whose memories of serving alongside the team as a teen are bubbling to the surface since his return.
In the story, kicking off in May, writer Jim Zub and artist Juanan Ramirez Romero will reunite the adult Scott Summers with the teen team he helped found as a teen while stranded in the then-future. Against the backdrop of the War of the Realms - and with the X-Men currently presumed dead - perhaps this re-teaming is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Here's the full solicitation and cover for Champions #5, due out in May. Look for more information in Marvel's full May 2019 solicitations later this month.
JIM ZUB (W) • JUANAN RAMIREZ ROMERO (A)
- The War of the Realms rages across Midgard, bringing together heroes from across the globe to fight for our world against mythic evil.
- In the midst of this chaos, the Champions need...Scott Summers?
- Cyclops reunites with the Champions, all grown up!
Editor's Note: A previous version of this story listed an incorrect artist. Series writer Jim Zub has named Juanan Ramirez Romero as the interior artist on Champions #5. This story and solicitation have been edited to reflect this change.
