The flashback series Gwen Stacy is welcoming the classic X-Men to its pages with May's fourth issue.
"Before she met Spidey, Gwen Stacy’s no-quit attitude and nose for trouble was already landing her in dangerous situations," reads Marvel's description of the series' penultimate issue. "See what happens when she runs afoul of villains like Crime Master, Kingpin, and even the Green Goblin. If it sounds like Gwen bit off more than she can chew, don’t worry - she’ll he’ll have super hero help in May’s Gwen Stacy #4 when she teams up with the Silver Age’s strangest teens, the original X-Men!"
A few weeks ago, series writer Christos Gage told Newsarama this series is set roughly in the time period of Amazing Spider-Man #25 through #27. Back then Gage teased some surprise guest stars without mentioning Marvel's mutants specifically, saying "Quite a bit. Aside from Harry, there's Crime Master, there’s Green Goblin/Norman Osborn, the Enforcers (I love me some Enforcers), Jean DeWolff, Yuri Watanabe, Frederick Foswell, J. Jonah Jameson...and maybe some surprises!"
Gwen Stacy #1 (of 5) debuts February 12, going monthly thereafter with the X-Men guest-starring issue in #4, scheduled for May.
