These are the words of the author Peach Momoko:

I love yōkai, horror stories and Japanese folklore, samurai stories… I've always wanted to tell something similar with Marvel characters, looking for new narrative outlets but also from a design point of view.

The whole miniseries takes place in Japan and I will introduce different characters, different versions in reality so forget their "original" versions also because my characters will not be superheroes but samurai, oni, yojimbo and so on ... They will have the powers that distinguish them but also new versions of them.

I went as far as I could to give as personal a version of the Marvel universe as possible and I really hope readers enjoy it.

Marvel has already announced the departure of a new regular series in continuity entitled X-Men Legends which will see the return of some of the names involved in what is considered the golden age of the X-Men or the 90's.
