Let's throw some quotes there though.
"New" title and "new cast". If you read Astonishing X-Men you'd know the cast, and if you didn't read Astonishing don't worry, more information coming!
That's right, Kid Nightcrawler (arguably young Kurt from X-Men Evolution as some online fans were originally convinced) is a featured cast member in this new ongoing!Newsarama: Greg, the first thing I (and I imagine, a lot of people) noticed about X-Treme X-Men is that it sounds very similar to Exiles. Is that a fair interpretation, or missing the mark? Did Exiles influence the conception of this series at all?
Greg Pak: When X-Men editor extraordinaire Nick Lowe and I met last year to brainstorm my Astonishing X-Men arc, which opened by throwing Cyclops into an alternate reality, we absolutely were thinking of that Exiles magic. But since this was an Astonishing story, we had the fun excuse to dream up alternate versions of the biggest X-Men characters around — hence our alternate Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde, Emma Frost, and Professor X.
Very EXILES! I like that this title is combining the working elements of Exiles, the necessity of an off beat team like X-Treme, and characters from various alternate realities!
