X-Men fans get ready because the newest generation of X-Men are heading our way. This week Marvel Comics announced that Hisako Ichiki, AKA Armor, along with Maystorm will kick things off with ULTIMATE X-MEN #1. Created by Peach Momoko; this third season of the Ultimate line will hit local comic shops on March 6. You can check out the official Mark Brooks cover and details of this first issue below.


This March, see the X-Men like you’ve never seen them before in ULTIMATE X-MEN #1! The third series of Marvel’s thrilling new Ultimate line, ULTIMATE X-MEN #1 will be written and drawn by visionary creator Peach Momoko. Momoko will kick things off with fan-favorite X-Man Hisako Ichiki, AKA Armor, along with Maystorm, the Storm-inspired character she created for last year’s popular New Champions Variant Cover program. 

Armor is a teenage girl who just wants to live a normal life – go to school, hang out with her friends, ignore the political strife broiling over after the events of ULTIMATE INVASION – but life has other plans for her. In Japan, urban legends have sprung to life and brought some unusual new powers with them…


“At first, I was worried about being chosen for such an important project, but the more I draw and write the series, the more confident I am with my own vision of ULTIMATE X-MEN,” Momoko told AiPT Comics in last week’s X-Men Monday column. “ULTIMATE X-MEN isn’t directly influenced by classic X-Men stories. I like to believe C.B. [Cebulski] and Jonathan Hickman chose me because they wanted something completely new and different.”

Check out Mark Brooks’ show-stopping variant cover today and stay tuned for the premiere of the ULTIMATE X-MEN #1 trailer later this week! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
