3) Former Gen X'ers Husk and Penance don't seem to have commitments to others books currently. Any thoughts to including them in your all-female team later on down the road?
I have Husk in a minor role in "Ultimate X-Men," but yeah, I'd love the chance to write most of those Gen X'ers -- I remember wayyyy back in the stone age (1999 or so) I pitched a weird road trip story starring Penance. I can't find the file, but she's an interesting character for sure. Monet, as well, would be fun to write. Maybe if "X-Men" takes off as it is, I can have a "B-team" within the title and employ some of these characters.

In a brief change of pace, Wolverine12 has a few quick questions on "Ultimate Comics X-Men."
Hi Brian, I have really been enjoying your run on "Ultimate X-Men." I have 3 questions for you.
1) With the recently announced "Ultimate Wolverine" mini series will we see any long term affects from that book bleed over into your book, either concurrent with the series or after it finishes?
Not that I've been given a heads-up on. When Cullen [Bunn] started writing that book our editor briefed me on it and asked me if anything seemed like a conflict (nothing did), but that's been the extent of it. So far, anyway. I'm about to take the book into a pretty volatile couple story arcs that are going to, quote, "change everything" so if there is any bleeding across the two titles, it'll probably happen after that. See next answer for more.
2) Will we be seeing more interaction between Jean Grey/Karen Grant's crew and Kitty's crew?
There will be total interaction, yes, starting with #24 and the "Natural Resources" arc. This is the start of something big.
3) Where the heck is Pietro and his new brotherhood?
Good question. I don't know. I don't mean to sound flip, but that's the answer. It's not in my pitch or my plans for the future.
