Cet automne, Marvel Comics donnera le coup d'envoi d'une nouvelle initiative intitulée MARVEL LEGACY. Marvel annonce un retour aux sources, à l'ancienne numérotation des plus vieux titres de son catalogue, des récits qui seront des points d'entrée idéals...un accent mis sur les personnages iconiques mais sans oublier la nouvelle génération du Marvel NOW.
Bref, "de l'espoir, du plaisir, du fun, du sense of wonder" !
Pour affronter un dangereux tueur de mutants, Cable réunit une nouvelle équipe, en recrutant ses membres à différentes périodes : Longshot, Shatterstar, Doop, X-23, Blink et Armor !
Nouvelle équipe créative pour Nathan Summers : Ed Brisson (Iron Fist, Old Man Logan) au scénario et Jon Malin (Thunderbolts...ouch !) aux dessins.
Ed Brisson : "I think one of the marks of a good team leader is the ability to recognize holes in your team and bringing in members to fill those gaps. Not only fill those deficiencies, but also know the best way to utilize each member in order to get the job done. Cable is pragmatic. For him, there’s the mission and his only focus is not failing it. He’s not going to let his own ego get in the way of that. Nor is he going to abide by anyone else’s ego. Each member of the team, in this case specifically - and in a very clinical sense - is a tool needed to achieve their objective."
"In this arc, Cable only knows that someone has leapt to the past and killed a mutant in New Orleans. As he peels back the layers of the case, he starts to understand the larger picture of what he’s against and begins to recruit members based on what he needs to accomplish. The team, consisting of Longshot, Shatterstar, Doop, X-23, Blink, and Armor each provide a very important skillset needed to find this killer and stop him or her. You take one of them out of the equation and the mission is doomed. One of the interesting things in writing this is that we’ve set it in the past, which allows Cable to bring in members who he’s worked with 10, 20, 50 years into the future. He knows that they’re capable of things that they may not even be aware of."
