Marvel's newest comic book teaser art for their big summer event series is appealing directly to 90's Kid Nostalgia. X-Men 92 appears to be a continuation of the popular 90's comic and cartoon series. With a lineup featuring Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Jubilee, Gambit, Rogue, Storm and Beast, this version of the X-Men might be their most iconic.

Every day for weeks on end now, Marvel has been teasing the return of classic story lines, but this one definitely has our attention. Now, if they can get that theme song in those pages, too, it'll be a bestseller.

Despite all the great news Fox has had about it's X-Men: Apocalypse casting in the past couple months, the franchise is taking a serious blow. Superstar, Jennifer Lawrence has confirmed she will be leaving the series after 2016's trilogy finale. Fox hit the jackpot, bringing her on as the shapeshifting Mystique for X-Men: First Class just before she hit super-stardom in The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook, but now the actress is moving on.

Apocalypse is the third installment in the young X-Men storyline. Lead by Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult, it will act as a transitional piece as Fox ramps up the franchise to compete with Marvel's Avenger's universe. With a planned Deadpool, Gambit, and another Wolverine spin-off all in the works, Fox is hoping to make an X-Men extended universe that can hold it's own against the Marvel and DC behemoths.

Lawrence's exit is probably best for both parties, allowing the Oscar-winner to pursue different fare, while simultaneously allowing Fox to explore other characters in the X-Men catalogue. Let's just hope the X-Men franchise can survive without her strength in the box office.
