New Missions Define The Future Of The X-Men As Fall Of X Reaches Its Apex This March

Share This Post

In Jonathan Hickman’s 2019 soft reboot House of X and Powers of X, the dawn of Krakoa ushered in a revolutionary period of X-Men comic book storytelling. Now, the Krakoan age comes crashing down and the current group of X-creators are making sure it goes out on a high note! Two interconnected series—Gerry Duggan and Lucas Werneck’s Fall of the House of X and Kieron Gillen and R.B. Silva’s Rise of the Powers of X—will close out the era. The mythos-shattering events of these twin sagas will bleed out into special limited series including Cable, Dead X-Men, Resurrection of Magneto, and X-Men Forever. In addition, current X-Men ongoing titles Wolverine, X-Force, and X-Men will also deal with the dramatic repercussions of Krakoa’s fall with the culmination of nearly five years’ worth of intricate plotting and redefining character arcs.

Today, fans can learn about the various X-Men issues hitting stands in March. It’s the peak of the Fall of the House of X and the final war of Krakoa is fought on multiple fronts throughout time and space! Harsh defeats and inspiring victories await as Nathan Summers teams up with his younger self to take down the new threat of the Neocracy in Cable, Betsy Braddock assists a group of fallen X-Men on their desperate mission in Dead X-Men , and Storm and Magneto face off against an iconic X-Men villain in the afterlife in Resurrection of Magneto. In addition, the Phoenix Force’s role in mutantkind’s future is revealed in X-Men Forever and one of the greatest best friend duos in the Marvel Universe reunite for some good old fashioned vengeance in X-Men #32.

Also in March, Wolverine and Sabretooth continue their bloodiest and most momentous showdown ever in new installments of SABRETOOTH WAR and Beast finally gets what’s been coming to him as X-Force reaches its milestone 50th issue.
