Mike Carey has teased a new superhero project.

The untitled series, on which the X-Men Legacy writer has begun work, will see him making his debut for a different comics publisher.

"I'm writing another superhero book (the first since I left X-Men) for a publisher I've never worked with before," he told Robot 6.

"It's continuity-free, high concept and finite. And I'm really, really happy with how it's coming along. The announcement is a while away yet, so I can't really say any more than that.

"But it plays off a situation where people are starting to be given superpowers for the first time, in a way that's both unlikely and a little bit suspect. And it's about a guy who chooses to go down this road, and what it means for him and his family. Which, to be blunt, is nothing good."

Carey concluded his six-year run on the X-Men franchise last December, saying that he did so with "a lot of regrets".

His Vertigo title The Unwritten remains ongoing.
