No More Mutants: X-Men Misfits and more get axed

Dark times are nigh for fans of east-west comic book crossovers, as X-Men Misfits, a shoujo-manga-styled adaptation of everyone's favorite mutant franchise has been separated from its ability to exist, Scarlet Witch style.

Deb Aoki at About.com heard about it from the creator's Twitter accounts themselves. As it turns out, another manga adaptation, Wolverine: Prodigal Son, was among the casualty figures. No healing factor can save this comic from low sales.

To be perfectly honest, this is the first time I've even heard of an X-Men shoujo manga-ish adaptation, especially not one centered on the romantic misadventures of a certain Kitty Pryde and the Hellfire Club, a group of hot, noodle-limbed studs with mutant powers. That's Kitty, Pyro and Iceman on the cover, by the way.

R.I.P., Misfits. Here's to hoping that you too possess the uncanny ability to die and resurrect multiple times, like any good western comic book hero.
