Marvel fans will elect the next X-Men lineup in 2022

That’s the 2022 election everyone’s talking about, right?

A year ago, Marvel Comics let readers vote on which character would become the final member of the X-Men. The results were unveiled at the comic book event of the season: the stylish and momentous Hellfire Gala.

In 2022, the Hellfire Gala is coming back — and so is the X-Men election.

The “second annual” X-Men election, Marvel announced via news release, will run from Jan. 10 9:00 a.m. EST until 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, Jan. 13. Just like in 2021, fans can vote for one of 10 mutants, and the one with the most votes will become the final member of the X-Men team featured in X-Men, revealed in the second annual Hellfire Gala in June of 2022.

Who are those 10 mutants? Marvel also revealed the names, complete with campaign slogans and bios:
