Marvel Comics is set to have an exciting June 2012. Last week, the publisher revealed Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli's "Spider-Men." Earlier this week, a teaser featuring the Captain Marvel logo and emblem surfaced. Today, the publisher released an incredibly sparse image featuring only a purple and black logo for "X-Treme X-Men" with "July 2012" printed on top. According to the information accompanying the teaser, more information will be available at WonderCon 2012 during Tom Brevoort's Talk to the Hat panel on Saturday, March 17 at 4:00 PM.

The original "X-Treme X-Men," written by Chris Claremont with art by Salvador Larroca and Igor Kordey, was published between 2001 and 2004 and featured a splinter team of X-Men on a quest to recover Destiny's diaries. While it was eventually replaced by Joss Whedon and John Cassiday's "Astonishing X-Men," the title featured a rotating roster of X-Men and introduced the characters of Slipstream and Lifeguard to the Marvel U.

Check out the teaser below and stay tuned to CBR News for full coverage of the Talk to the Hat panel during WonderCon 2012.
