Another year, another crisis in the X-Men universe. Can’t they all just get along? Fortunately, they can’t and that makes for some great reading for fans.
This new arc looks to carry on the tradition of fine storytelling and we’ve got a preview of the first issue of X-Men: Battle of the Atom for you today. Here’s more from Marvel:
Hank McCoy brought the original X-Men into the present in the hopes of changing the course of history and stopping Scott Summer’s mutant revolution before it even begins. But as the young and confused X-Men try to cope with their devastating futures, the team begins to unravel from the inside.
And just as mutant civil war is about to hit its boiling point, an unexpected third party comes in to change the game – the future X-Men! They’ve traveled back in time with a warning – the originals need to go back to their rightful time or they will be the final nail in mutantkind’s coffin. They risked everything to come to the past and won’t leave until the All-New X-Men are back in the past.
Three X-Men universes collide in the biggest war mutantkind has ever seen, and you won’t believe how it all plays out. One thing’s for sure—no reader will come out unscathed!
Who will become unlikely allies? What is S.H.I.E.L.D.’s master plan? What are the consequences for altering time and space? Most importantly, what will determine the fate of our favorite superheroes?
It’s monumental! It’s earth-shattering! It’s X-Men: Battle of the Atom!
