The Sabretooth War Rages, The Phoenix Force Burns, And Magneto Reclaims His Kingdom As The End Of An X-Men Era Draws Nearer This April

Share This Post

By now, fans have experienced the explosive debut issues of Fall of the House of X and Rise of the Powers of X, but these twin series are only the beginning of the dramatic finale to the X-Men’s acclaimed Krakoa era! Across exciting new limited series and tie-in issues of ongoing series, this crucial war for mutantkind’s future will unfold in a grand tapestry of brave missions, shocking revelations, and heartbreaking defeats. With the X-Men embracing a new destiny this summer, fans won’t want to miss single moment of this epic ending to an unforgettable period of their 60-year history.

The most glorious moments of the Krakoan age are still ahead and today, fans can learn about the various X-Men related issues hitting stands in April. A stacked team of powerhouse X-Men join forces against Orchis in X-Men #33, the success of Storm’s divine mission to bring back Magneto is revealed in Resurrection of Magneto #4, a group of fallen X-Men confront death again in Dead X-Men #4, and a threat only mutantkind’s greatest soldiers can handle is unleashed in Cable #3. In addition, the Phoenix Force burns away the remaining mysteries of the Krakoan age in X-Men #4.

The mythos-shattering events of Fall of the House of X and Rise of the Powers of X will also bleed out into the wider Marvel Universe as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes join the fray in Avengers #11 and Avengers #12 while Tony Stark confronts his technology’s own role in Krakoa’s downfall in Invincible Iron Man #17.

Also in April are new pulse-pounding chapters of SABRETOOTH WAR!  With last week’s opening chapter, Wolverine #41, fans saw why “Sabretooth War” was billed as the most violent Wolverine story ever told! Wolverine and Sabretooth’s momentous showdown only gets bloodier as this 10-part epic rages on in Wolverine #47 and #48, and it’s all leading up to the milestone Wolverine #50 in May!
