Sunspot watches as the Stajammers’ ship goes off to bring Cannonball back to Earth in a new teaser for November 6’s New Mutants #1.
Jonathan Hickman, Ed Brisson, and Rod Reis’ New Mutants features the founding New Mutants team (and some later X-Men teen team additions) as a sort of “welcome committee” for mutants as they enter modern mutant society on Krakoa.
Cannonball, however, hasn’t lived regularly on Earth in years (he has still been a part of X-Force and U.S. Avengers recently) – having moved to the Shi’ar Empire during Hickman’s Avengers run, complete with a wife and a child. Hickman has shown a special affinity for the Sunspot/Cannonball duo however, in Avengers and other stories, and this inaugural New Mutants arc seems to be about reuniting that team.
Although the “Dawn of X” Wave 1 titles are primarily set on Earth, Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski has told Newsarama that the “cosmic side side of the X-Men” have a “very cool” future ahead – specially, mentioning the Starjammers and the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. Could Cannonball, given his deep ties to the Shi’ar – be a part of that as well?
