Mark your calendar because mutantkind is hosting another Hellfire Gala, and it’s shaping up to be a night that Marvel fans dare not miss! Creators Gerry Duggan (X-Men), Russell Dauterman , Matteo Lolli (Marauders), C.F. Villa (Black Cat), and Kris Anka (Runaways) will deliver 72 pages loaded with high-stakes drama, shocking character developments, and of course, showstopping super hero fashion.
At last year’s gala, mutants changed the face of the solar system, terraforming Mars and claiming it for mutantkind. This time around, they’ll once again set out to bring radical transformation to the Marvel Universe and are inviting every super hero on the planet to witness it. And when an uninvited guest crashes the party, the chaos that ensues will cause cracks in the very foundation of Krakoa and lead directly into the biggest Marvel story of the year– Kieron Gillen and Valerio Schiti’s Judgement Day! All that plus the reveal of the new X-Men lineup and the winner of the mega-popular X-Men fan vote. The seeds for what’s to come in the X-Men franchise over the next few years are planted right here!
“Last summer your host Emma Frost invited you to celebrate Krakoa with some fireworks. This year, it’s about celebrating mutantdom’s friendship with humanity,” Duggan explained. “Once again, we have a murderer’s row of talent crafting a one-shot with revelations that will chart the biggest stories in the Marvel Universe. All that, and meet a new team of X-Men.”
