Marvel Comics has announced a new mini-series at the NYCC: X-Men panel. Kathryn Immonen and Phil Noto will be bringing Wolverine and Jubilee back together in Wolverine and Jubilee: Curse of the Mutants #1.
The series, which will be released in January, picks up after the war between the mutants and vampires. Immonen had this to say about Jubilee:
"Jubilee is a delicious layer cake of anger and fury and guilt and doubt," Immonen lists. "She's a disaster, still a vampire, and back in the hands of the X-Men who are trying really hard to figure out what to do with her because no one is prepared to write her off, but they can't just turn her loose either."
The goal of Wolverine in the series will be to bring Jubilee back from the brink.
The relationship that we're exploring between Wolverine and Jubilee has the potential to be totally heart-breaking," acknowledges Immonen. "Jubilee's going to make some bad decisions and I think that's something Wolverine knows a thing or two about, but additionally, the real change between them is, all things being equal, she's now going to outlive him. And that's not something either of them is prepared for."
The series starts in January, 2011.
