Greg Pak talked to CBR and their readers about the new series. Here are some excerpts regarding Emma “Emmaline” Frost’s role.

X-Treme X-Men Interview

X-Treme X-Men cover by Salvador LaroccaHow do Howlett, Kid Nightcrawler, and Emmaline Frost get from the reality in your “Astonishing” story to wherever they start out in “X-Treme X-Men?”

All will be revealed in issue #1. I’ll just say that all those Xavier heads in bottles that we saw at the end of my “Astonishing” story play a key role.

Is there by any chance that Ruby Summers or a derivative of her (Scott’s and presumably Emma’s alternate reality daughter from Bishop’s reality), going to join your cast? She was an instant favorite on the boards here and has such a unique character that only alternate reality stories can feature.

We don’t have plans for Ruby Summers at the moment, but I agree with what you say about alternative reality stories — they’re the only and best place to explore certain big, risky ideas and themes. We’re doing our best to deliver on that promise in spades.

Will we get to see exactly where the three alternate reality versions of Wolverine, Emma Frost and Nightcrawler come from?

Yes! We’re dropping a few more hints along the way about the nature of their home realities — eventually we’ll see much more.
