All-New Look for the All-New X-Men

A few days ago Senior Editor Nick Lowe sat down with Newsarama and talked about the upcoming redesign for the All New X-men.  The new look comes out of the pages of X-men: Battle of the Atom and is meant to symbolize the team’s transition into our future timeline.

The design itself comes from the minds of series writer Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen.  According to Lowe, “Their costumes were designed 50 years ago, so it seemed like time!”

As a reader, it’s always nice to see fresh ideas and designs coming into comics.  But it’s a tricky road when it comes to making changes, espeically when it comes to characters who, like Lowe puts it, have had a pretty established look for the last 50 years.

That being said, I like the new look, even if it does give off a bit of a Voltron force vibe (yea I know, now it can’t be unseen).  It’s sleek, helps the characters stand out, and, much like Lowe talked about in the original article, it’s indicative of their transition to our time.

When the series first started out Cyclopes, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel, and Beast often times found themselves playing the part of the cliched “fist out of water” story.  But now, with enough time having passed, the characters have made a home for themselves here.  It’s only fair that they get a new look to help cement their places in our time.  Now the only question remains, who gets to pilot the pink lion.

Things that make want to go back to comics
