Writer Greg Pak and artist Stephen Segovia launched the “X-Treme X-Men” series in July 2012. The series starred Dazzler as she led a team of alternate-universe X-Men throughout the multiverse on a mission to kill ten evil Xaviers. Yeah, it was pretty awesome.
The podcast of the superfun Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men panel I did at the Rose City Comic Con has gone live! Check it out here!
Had a blast on that panel. Realized I’ve written a heck of a lot of X-Books over the years — X-Men Phoenix Endsong, X-Men Phoenix Warsong, Magneto Testament, Astonishing X-Men, X-Treme X-Men, Storm… even Alpha Flight with Fred Van Lente, which is kind of X-Adjacent. And we talked about a ton of those books! Especially Magneto and X-Treme X-Men.
Jay and Miles are very, very funny and the audience was incredible. Enjoy!

X-Man fans interviewed me about “X-Treme X-Men” at Comic Book Resources. Here’s an excerpt:
Which is your favorite character to write in X-Treme and what sets this book apart from other X-Titles?
I love all my babies equally. But Howlett and Dazzler are probably my faves. I’m pretty much in love with Howlett’s tough guy exterior, great good heart, and propensity for blushing. He’s a tough guy sweetheart, which is a ton of fun to write. And my girl Dazzler just makes me smile. She’s got very little filter — if she’s thinking it, she’s probably saying it, which is an endearing quality and a ton of fun to write. And she also strikes me as a fundamentally decent person who’s always been an underdog and maybe doesn’t even realize how huge a hero she really is. Again, endearing and a ton of fun to write.
Greg Pak’s reality hopping comic book “X-Treme X-Men” joins Marjorie Liu’s “Astonishing X-Men” and David Lapham’s “Age of Apocalypse” for a 2013 crossover story called “X-Termination.” Check out an excerpt of the Marvel.com interview:
Marvel.com: Greg, picking up things in X-TREME X-MEN #12, how do alternative Charles Xaviers figure into this story?
Greg Pak: Dazzler and her X-Treme team have been on an insane mission to kill 10 evil alterna-Xaviers before they bring ruin upon the multiverse. In this storyline, we’ll finally find out exactly what threat the Xaviers represent and whether the Xavier Head in a Bottle who’s been guiding the team is a villain or a hero. Most importantly, we’re going to find out whether Dazzler’s finally going to cross that line and risk her own soul in order to fulfill her responsibilities as a leader.
