X-Men Gold #3 is the climax of the first arc of the new ResurrXion series. The story is written by Marc Guggenheim with art by Ardian Syaf and shows the final showdown between Kitty Pryde’s X-Men and the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
“Usually, in the past few years, the X-Men have been dealing with very mutant-centric problems, issues of extinction or ‘no more mutants’ or the Terrigen Mist, and this is an attempt to sort of get back to the basics, get back to the days when the X-Men basically were superheroes who were trying to save people who fundamentally distrusted them and fundamentally hated them,” Guggenheim said previously of his mission statement for X-Men Gold.
“That's also the team's mission statement,” Guggenheim continues. “The team is trying again, after all these years of dealing with these existential threats, to reestablish themselves among humanity as good people, as people who can show that mutants can be trusted and that mutants need not be feared.”
The preview below shows some of the students at Xavier’s School getting into the action alongside Professor Kitty. Speaking to ComicBook.com, Guggenheim hinted that there would be some guest stars joining Kitty’s X-Men Gold team.
“Oh, yeah, you'll definitely see guest team members, even in issue one, there are a whole bunch of other mutants apart from our core five,” He said. “The balancing act I'm trying to do is keep the main lineup small and manageable, but, at the same time, play around with a bunch of other characters as the stories dictate. For example, in the second arc, Gambit comes to the fore. Rockslide and Armor play an important role in the first arc. I love Anole, so Anole keeps popping up. Kid Gladiator appears in the first issue. You have all these toys in the toy box and I'd be foolish not to avail myself of as many of them as I can organically work in.”
