Another Secret Empire tie-in one-shot has been revealed, bringing Emma Frost from the shocking events of Inhuman vs. X-Men‘s finale into the new summer event, according to IGN. Secret Empire: United has the one-time White Queen leading a new team of X-Men against Steve Rogers’ Hydra forces. The one-shot is written by Jim Zub, with art by Ario Anindito.
Frost and her new X-Men team will be attempting to rebuff a Hydra invasion of New Tian, “a mutant controlled region of the United States.” In Warren Ellis’ Astonishing X-Men, a Chinese city called Tian was introduced as the secret home of a group of Chinese mutants.
Marvel has, so far, announced three core X-Men teams as a part of their “ResurrXion” relaunch, none of which include Emma Frost. In fact, Emma seemed to have been set up as returning to villainy in Inhumans vs. X-Men, though that turn may not have been quite what it seemed. At this time, there is no Uncanny X-Men title announced for “ResurrXion” – which was the last title in which Emma Frost was a main character.
Secret Empire: United is due out on shelves June 14.
