X-Men Forever is a bi-weekly series that brings writer Chris Claremont back to the X-Men with artist Tom Grummett. The story will pick up where X-Men #3 left off, with Magneto dead and the X-Men greatly changed. It begins in May 2009 with X-Men Forever Alpha, collecting X-Men Vol. 2 Issues #1-3, plus a new eight-page story. Then X-Men Forever will begin with a new #1 issue in June.

"Dark Reign: Dark Wolverine", the story in the Wolverine ongoing series that will begin with Issue #75 in June, causing the title to be renamed to reflect its tie-in to the 'Dark Reign' story. The comic will explore how Daken took up his father's mantle, and whether Logan will stand by and let his son run rampant, using his name. The story will be written by Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu. "This is Daken with the keys to the kingdom. This is his first time out in the Marvel Universe as a character," Way said. "But the catch is that he has to wear Wolverine's costume."

"And it drives him insane," Liu said.http://www.newsarama.com/comics/090206-nycc09-marvel-xmen.html

The Daken stuff might be interesting if it was written by someone other than Way. And the idea of Claremont picking up where he left off with X-Men #3 is interesting. Not sure if he'll be able to really get into that mode again, but I'll check out the first issue. Probably the only project these days I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on.
