With everything that’s leading up to Secret Wars, there’s a ton of speculation as to what’s going to happen at Marvel. Titles are being announced every day for this event and yet for some reason, Marvel is deciding to release yet another title called Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex. The comic will be a crossover title that’s written by Sam Humphries, with art by Ed McGuinness. I think this idea of mixing the two groups is pretty cool, but do we really need another title when we’re about to drop so much money in the next couple months on the biggest crossover since the 90s? Here’s the official from Marvel!

The Guardians of the Galaxy, the All-New X-Men, Nova, Captain Marvel, Cyclops and more team up for a cosmic throwdown the likes of which have never been seen in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY & X-MEN: THE BLACK VORTEX! On sale this week, the highly anticipated first issue in the upcoming crossover from fan-favorite writer Sam Humphries and blockbuster artist Ed McGuinness!

The Black Vortex, an ancient artifact of immense and immeasurable power has resurfaced on the far side of the galaxy. With the power to unlock its users true cosmic potential, in the wrong hands, the Black Vortex’s power could be a force of unparalleled destruction. Imagine the power that transformed Jean Grey into the Phoenix or Norin Radd into the Silver Surfer available to anyone, and in the hands of those who would use it for evil!
