    Default HELLIONS by Zeb Wells & Stephen Segovia For March 2020

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mar...-troublemakers
    When the X-Men invited all mutants to Krakoa, they meant ALL mutants, even forgiving the past sins of some of their fiercest enemies. Chief among them was Mister Sinister who now tasks himself with finding purpose for mutantkind’s most dangerous outcasts: Wild Child, Nanny, Orphan Maker, Empath, and Scalphunter! Also on hand to do Sinister’s dirty work will be X-Men favorites Psylocke and Havok! Will they be able keep these murderous baddies in line or will the team’s deadly missions have them succumb to their own sinister natures?

    “I can't believe I get a chance to play in the sandbox Jonathan Hickman and company have so brilliantly created,” says Wells. “For my money it's the most exciting game in town and I can't wait to let this merry band of psychopaths loose in it.”

    "I am HUGE fan of Zeb Wells' work. The moment I read his HELLIONS pitch, I was blown away,” says Segovia. “It's a new level of mutant stories and I was overjoyed and pumped to begin drawing it immediately. I can't wait for you guys to see the magic we're cooking up and I promise you'll enjoy the ride!"

    Yeah, I'm gonna take a hard pass on this one. The team just doesn't have any likeable people on it.

    I'll check out the first issue. My initial feeling is that I'll pass on it just like I did Marauders, Fallen Angels and New Mutants.

    I can enjoy stories without actually having to "like" characters.

    So you already hate the run before it starts?

    I don't understand this logic either.

    @PsychoEFrost
    What is more important for you, the characters or the story?
    So you would prefer a terrible story with your fave character in (let's say... IvX) to an incredible story that doesn't have your fave character in?

    It's people like you that are the reason District X, X-Factor Investigations, Legion Legacy etc got cancelled

    I agree 100% with you
    I see a lot of whining that has no reason to be
    the fact that the writer chose such unusual characters probably means that he has a very specific idea for them, I would even say Psylocke and Havok are the outsiders there, as in, the editorial probably told him he had to include some well known xmen, it couldnt all be D list characters
    I think it could be really good

    The book looks fantastically interesting and I am down for it.
    The only negative I have is that Psylocke is leading Fallen Angels so she's on two teams/books as a featured character in Dawn of X. With so many mutants that have been brought back or available, it feels too early to start having some of these non-Wolverines (not that he should/does) leading multiple books when other mutants could have been used especially when we have no clue who she is other than a bodysuit that Betsy wore for 30 years.

    I don’t think Zeb Wells has ever dissappointed yet.

    Going to pass hard on this. But hopefully they at least stop crapping all over Havok here.

    Duggod's Nova run is pretty good, but the Wells issues are fantastic and I'm mad he didn't stay for long because he had to go become a chicken or whatever.
