WHO IS MAJOR X?
A mysterious new player has joined the Marvel Universe…
New York, NY—January 18, 2019 —Who is Major X? This April, the truth will be revealed in an all-new, six issue mini-series written by the creator who introduced the world to Deadpool, Cable and X-Force: industry legend Rob Liefeld!
“To me, the X-Men have always thrived on big ideas, crazy ideas,” Liefeld said in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Major X introduces a new character who is certain to mix up everything in the X-world. He hails from another existence, which is called the ‘X-istence’ — a mutant Shangri-La, a safe haven that has been a realm where mutant kind has lived in peace and harmony. They escaped there following a tragedy that befell mutant kind, and built this community…but then a terrible event happens within the X-istence that causes Major X to cross over and land in the Marvel Universe that we know.”
C.B. Cebulski, Editor-in-Chief of Marvel, said “I still remember when Rob made his Marvel debut, and the impact his art and storytelling had on comics. The energy and enthusiasm Rob brings to comics and every page he draws is still felt to this day, and it’s a joy to have him return to his roots with the X-Men. Rob may have started developing these X-ideas 30 years ago, but his story will leave an indelible mark on our modern mutants!”
