Note: I don’t know about you, but the recently launched Wolverine And The X-Men has been a breath of fresh air in Marvel’s mutant comics — and that was only doubled when artist Nick Bradshaw took over. Following after Chris Bachalo is a challenge unto itself, but Bradshaw excelled and also introduced us to a future team of X-Men featuring some of today’s teen mutants all grown up — and some merged with other concepts. Quintin Quire as Phoenix, with a tinge of Charles Xavier? A Brood as X-Man? Lapsed X-men fans might not know who any of these are, but you can’t help but enjoy the decisions and maybe — just maybe — want to give this title a look. Here’s sketches Bradshaw did of the future team, taken from this Newsarama.com interview with writer Jason Aaron.
