A new X-Men series centered around resurrections is coming next year

Mutants being reborn is going to be a real headache in 2020.

Today, House of X and Powers of X architect Johnathan Hickman answered your questions in X-Men Monday. The Q&A is filled with content and I highly recommend you read the entire piece as it’s enlightening even if you’re not an X-Men fan. He’s already revealed one new series is on the way from an unnamed writer focusing on Moira, but another is on the way too.

Near the end of the interview, Hickman is answering a question about souls and the idea of duplicates existing came up. He goes on to say:

“But if that’s the case then what about duplicate copies, which one gets the soul? I dunno, that sounds like a story to me, but that’s also why they’re not allowing copies of characters on Krakoa. But what if there’s a mistake and you think someone’s dead, but make a copy anyway? Well, again, that sounds like a story… and we even have a series built around resurrection problems coming out next year.

Apparently, the main sci-fi conceit of the books revolving around mutants being reborn whenever they die is going to become a huge deal. Such a big deal it’ll be getting its own book next year.

This was only one of his answers. Check out the whole Q & A here.
