Note: Superheroing is a family business, and artist Luca Pizzari has reunited one of comics most under-rated and disfunctional families in his revamp of the mutant family the Cassidys. With the X-Man Banshee leading the way, his black sheep brother Black Tom and hisdaughter Siryn are given new duds that brings their Irish roots back to the forefront. – Chris A.
Luca’s thoughts on the group:
In the current Marvel Universe, Sean Cassidy is dead. Let’s imagine that for some mysterious reason, as often in comics these days, now he’s better ;)
Since he came back from the dead, though, he hasn’t quite been the same, avoiding the X-community and retiring back to his native Ireland, where he owns an old family castle. Here his cousin Black Tom approaches him asking his assistance in a quest that involves their family history and his estranged daughter Siryn gets involved too, flying all the way from the US… basically the idea is to turn Banshee into the Marvel Comics Indiana Jones, living all sorts of adventures that delve into the supernatural/folkloristic while giving him the “Scooby-Doo” treatment: as he fights trolls, fairies or evil druids, these are revealed to be actually mutants or other supervillains.
