Several decades after The Uncanny X-Men, Neal Adams is back again to work on Marvel's superheroes. This time the project is The First X-Men. And it's a five issue canonical prequel plotted by Adams and scripted by Christos Gage.
This series stars Wolverine, known then as Logan, as he puts together a team of mutants to avenge wrongs. It's the X-Men before X-Men!
Of all the mutants on Earth, Professor X could easily pass as a human. Why would he want to get involved in this? [...] Maybe mutant kids were getting abused by the military, by the government.
Somebody would have been looking out for them, but maybe that person came to Charles Xavier, realizing he couldn't protect these kids.
Sounds like another epic era is about to begin. Can't wait for it!
