X-Men Children of the Atom spin-off scheduled for January

Marvel Comics has scheduled Children of the Atom #1, the next ongoing series in the 'Dawn of X' X-Men line, for January 2021, following months of delays due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

First announced to launch in April 2020, Children of the Atom focuses on a new team of mutants who are specifically mentored by older X-Men counterparts – with some of the members of the team even sporting powers and costumes that resemble those of their mentors.

Children of the Atom #1 is written by Vita Ayala with art from Bernard Chang. X-Men group editor Jordan D. White previously confirmed to Newsarama that the series would arrive despite changes in Marvel's publishing schedule caused by COVID-19, some of which are still playing out across the publisher's line.

“I have never known a world without mutants and the X-Men, and to be able to create characters that would become part of the canon is wild,” Ayala stated back when Children of the Atom was first announced. "What makes the new cast special to me is that they are reflective of a lot of people I know who look up to what the X-Men stand for, and have taken it upon themselves to further those ideals."

"These kids are exactly the kids who, in real life, have posters of Storm and Wolverine in their rooms, who grew up seeing them as heroes and want to live up to that."

No information about the cast of characters involved has been unveiled – with the so-called mystery of the mutants of the Children of the Atom forming a core part of the anticipation for the upcoming series.

Children of the Atom is one of several announced X-Men titles that have not been released, alongside Moira X, X-Corps, and more – though it's the first to be solicited, and rescheduled following the delays.

Children of the Atom will now debut immediately following the big 'X of Swords' event beginning in September and running across the entire X-Men line.

I'm putting it off until it comes out in Marvel Unlimited.  I'm not really that excited about it but I'll give it a chance.

“If I could go back in time and like tell 11 year old me that like not only do you get to go to Comic Con but you go every year.  So much so that you get greeted by Stan Lee when you show up.  And 11 year old me would be like - How did we get so fat?”- Kevin Smith
