The New Mutants are a team of fictional young teenage mutant superheroes-in training who usually appear in American comic books printed by Marvel Comics. They are the founding members of three consecutive comic book series, which have proven to be extremely popular and have achieved fantastic popularity. The most recent of these series was written by Scott Lobdell and drawn by Uncredited artist Rob Liefe. It was later brought into print as a special limited edition comic book and sold out within a matter of minutes. It has consistently ranked as one of the best-selling comic storylines of all time.
The New Mutants were formed when Professor X transformed a group of teenagers with telepathic abilities. Some of them became the nucleus of a team called the New Mutants. There has always been an antagonistic relationship between the X-Men and the Avengers. The New Mutants were created as a means of resolving that conflict. They were introduced to the world during the 'irement' of Professor X, and their origins were revealed. Ever since then, they have starred in a number of popular comic books including the popular X-Men: Omega, New Ultimates, New Worlds, and X-Men: Dark.
In the late sixties and the early seventies, the comic book medium was not what it is today. Creators usually had to work very hard to attract readers, as there was less opportunity to multimedia or digital effects in the form of movies or television shows. Many of the legendary creator of the X-Men such as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby worked on their comic books with very little assistance from anyone else.
The New Mutants comic book started after an attempted nuclear war between the United States and Russia. A young boy named Surge became the target of an experiment, and was transformed into a powerful telepath. As a result, Surge gained the ability to control other people's minds, and use their abilities for his own benefit. By using the new mutant power, Surge was able to brainwash any person he pleased, and used them to accomplish his evil plans. However, he discovered that some New Mutants were turning against him, because he was killing too many of their friends.
When a team of X-Men decided to take care of Surge, they made him a member of their new team, called the New Mutants. The team included Surge, along with Jubilee, effected by an experimental serum; along with Ogaryowers, a teen who was unfortunately afflicted by a mysterious psiotropium toxin; and Surge's childhood friend, Rogue. The team worked well together, working to protect humanity, while also battling villains. The X-Men became an international team, battling villains such as the resurfacing villain Magneto, and were able to save the world from further destruction.
The original team of X-Men will be featured in the upcoming movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix. However, it was revealed at a Q&A session at the San Diego Comic-Con that the future of the X-Men will be revealed in the movie! There is rumor and speculation that some of the New Mutants will not be featured in the movie, because they will be operating separately, in the good side. This will allow the original team to continue their feuding against the evil forces, instead.
It was also revealed at the panel that the movie will feature some classic X-Men characters, such as Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Rogue. These characters will be brought into the new Mutants Uprising, in the form of Arcade and Negasonic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was also mentioned that Cable, located on the Mexican-American island ofaways, will also be appearing in the movie. He will be appearing as a mentor to the young New Mutants.
Other characters that have been speculated to appear in the movie include Wolverine, Storm, Gambit, Beast, and The Old Man. Though these were not specifically mentioned by director David Fincher during the panel, many fans speculate that they might join the new X-Force. This team consists of several teenagers with incredible powers, who join together to combat the evil forces of Magneto and the devil himself. One of these members is Cable, who has a twin sister named Cable, whom he adopted as a child. Many movies have amazing casts and this one seems like it will be a big hit among young adults and children alike.
