Marvel Fans Are Celebrating X-Men Red As Cancellation Rumors Get Debunked

Marvel re-launched the comic series X-Men Red in 2022, as part of the new “Dawn of X” era in X-Men lore. The new book (by writer Al Ewing and artist Stefano Caselli) sees a mix-matched team of mutants come together to form a faction of X-Men on the Planet Mars, which has been terraformed by mutants into a second home, for the violent mutants from the gladiatorial otherworld of Arakko. Featuring Storm, Magneto, Sunspot, Cable, and some colorful Arakkii warriors, X-Men Red has been a major standout from the crowded X-Men line.

After the release of X-Men Red #6 this month, it seemed like Marvel fans were hyping the book like never before. However, due to some confusion (likely with the original X-Men: Red series) a rumor started to spread that X-Men Red (2022) was headed for cancellation before its first year in print.

As you can see below, Al Ewing is shutting down all rumors that X-Men Red is on the way out, as fans celebrate the epic work he’s doing on the series:

X-Men Red is NOT Cancelled

As you can see, X-Men Red writer Al Ewing has addressed the cancellation rumours. After some covers for X-Men Red got leaked, fans saw a team shot cover for X-Men Red #10 and thought it signaled that the series would be ending with issue #10. As of now, that is definitely not the case.

Let the Man COOK

Whether X-Men Red is canceled or not, Al Ewing does, indeed, need time to cook.


It’s All In The Name

X-Men Red’s two iterations have brought out some of the best writing talent working in the business (Tom Taylor, Al Ewing), even if the series has had a hard time staying alive. Respect the name.
