This is partially significant in that Wilson will be the first female writer to work on X-Men sense it was relaunched with an all-female X-Men roster.
More significant is Wilson's unique story structure. "The Burning World," which begins with January's X-Men #23, sees Gambit discovering a mysterious sinkhole outside a counter-cultural, Burning Man-like festival in the Black Rock Desert.
Each of the four issues of the story will be told from the perspective of a different X-Men character, with each issuing deepening the sinkhole's mystery and revealing ties to enemies from the X-Men's past.
"The Burning World" begins in January, and will run from X-Men #23-26.
