X-Men’s Hellions Series Finale Brings Back a Major Villain | CBR

This December, writer Zeb Wells and artist Stephen Segovia’s Hellions reaches its grand finale with issue #18 — and the infamous X-Men villain known as the Goblin Queen is making a comeback to mark the occasion.

“One of the most buzzed about X-Men titles on stands today, Zeb Well and Stephen Segovia’s Hellions has delivered a dramatic and action-packed examination of mutantkind’s most dangerous mutants,” Marvel Comics said in an official press release. “This December, this unpredictable saga will come to an end in a final issue that will rock the very foundation of Krakoa and send shockwaves throughout mutantkind!”

An official synopsis for Hellions #18 explains, “Orphan-Maker has committed a horrible crime. As he faces the ultimate penalty, the cracks in the team are on full display. Secrets, betrayals, alliances and loss all come to the surface as the fallout of Orphan-Maker’s actions threatens to end all the Hellions have worked toward… Plus, a final decision is made regarding one of the most troublesome figures in mutant history: Madelyne Pryor, aka The Goblin Queen. Fierce X-Men ally turned vengeful X-Men villain, the controversial clone of Jean Grey and ex-wife to Cyclops has served many roles over the years. Will Maddie return as a friend or foe?”

Created by Chris Claremont and Paul Smith, Madelyne Pryor/Goblin Queen first appeared in 1983’s Uncanny X-Men #168. The character was seemingly killed off in 2020’s Hellions #4, earlier in Wells and Segovia’s run. The Goblin Queen graces both Philip Tan and Peach Momoko’s variant covers for Hellions #18. The issue’s main cover, meanwhile, comes from Segovia. What’s more, artist Zé Carlos joins Segovia as co-penciler on the interior art.

Hellions may be coming to an end, but our team of outcasts are gonna leave their mark on the way out the door,” said Wells. “This includes bringing back one of my favorite characters, Madelyne Pryor! And take it from me, this is only the beginning for our Queen.”
