Marvel Delays Children of the Atom

Marvel has decided to delay the X-Men spin-off series Children of the Atom again with it now scheduled to go on sale on March 3, 2021. This is the second time the teen mutant series has been pushed back.

Children of the Atom #1 was originally announced for an April 2020 debut, but then put on hiatus (with many other Marvel books) due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The book was later rescheduled to come out January 6, 2021 - but now that has been changed as well.

Described by Marvel as a title about "the greatest teenage superhero team of all time," Children of the Atom focuses on a new team of mutants who are specifically mentored by older X-Men counterparts – with some of the members of the team even sporting powers and costumes that resemble those of their mentors.
