Marvel has confirmed that the X-Men will take on vampires in a forthcoming plotline.

The publisher previously hinted that the mutant team will face the undead creatures with the release of teaser illustrations featuring Blade and a vampiric Jubilee.

"It's going to be a nice fresh look at vampires. I think people are going to be pretty impressed," said writer Victor Gischler.

The X-Men have encountered vampires before, having squared off against Dracula in a previous story arc.

It has been speculated that several other team members will be transformed into mutant/vampire hybrids along with Jubilee.

The storyline begins this summer as part of Marvel's 'Heroic Age' event.
