Marvel Comics Introduces X-Babies Zombies In Today’s X-Men Annual | Popgen Tech
Made by Chris Claremont and Arthur Adamsthe X-Babies are child clones of the X-Men created by the interdimensional being Mojo for his satirical Mojoverse entertainment network, and first appeared in Uncanny X-Men Annual #12 in the eighties – following the previous iteration of the de-aged teenage X-Men in Weird X-Men Annual #10 two years ago from the same creative team.
Since their first appearance, there have been several incarnations of the X-Babies with and without Mojo, and often running away from him, such as in Excalibur: Mojo Mayhem, X-Men #46-47 and getting their own X-Babies mini-series in 2009 with an AVX spinoff A-Babies vs. X-Babies one shot in 2012.
Of course, more than ten years have passed. And so now sees something new X-Men Annual #1 looks at Firestar’s inclusion in the main X-Men team, given his own eighties history, it gives us another chance to revisit the X-Babies, forty years on. Clearly, they were looking the worse for wear.
Which means Zombie X-Babies. And while it’s just a double page spread one-off gag, they look the same as the original. And the fanbase and creators are not alone.
Expect The Toddlin’ Dead to come to a San Diego Comic-Con near you. And there are too many X-Men zombie babies to process, Havok.
