The New Ultimate X-Men Look Pretty Cool.... But What Is The Human Torch Doing Here?

The first preview pics of Marvel's new Ultimate X-Men #1 (it comes out in September) comic has hit the web, and all I can say is that i am intrigued and confused at the same time. In like the look of the characters (except for Iceman rocking a fitted hat while in ice form... whats up with that?), but I am intrigued by the choice of characters they chose to focus on. The Human Torch? Whats he doing in the X-Men? Also, I like the retro yet futuristic look of Wolverine's costume. Plus, I always love the good old yellow costume on Logan. he looks very Bruce Lee/Game of Death or /Uma Thurman/Kill Bill in that getup. Kitty Pryde, Rouge, Colossus, and Iceman make for some familiar faces as well. The book will be written by Nick Medina and drawn by Paco Medina. the cover art is done by the awesomely talented Kaare Andrews. Thanks to MTV Geek for the preview. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

  1. I do like that cowl on Wolvie - I wonder if it will carry though on the interior art.

  2. I don't know why but the cover and that last panel just remind me of Spider-Man and his Amazing friends. Not that that's a bad thing! Could it be Sunfire?

  3. Yeah, the Ultimate FF broke up right? He's still dead in the normal continuity I believe. I guess that's cool, i could see him fitting in. What other non-mutant X-men have there been.
