Everything You Need to Know About the Future of the X-Men

Marvel Comics editor Jordan D. White gives you a guide to the new era of the X-Men!

Face front, True Believers! The next new incredible era of the mighty mutants has begun with HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X!

2:39

Last week, HOUSE OF X #1 upended everything merry Marvelites thought they knew about the Children of the Atom and where they stand in the world today—and this week, POWERS OF X #1 forges some fabulously mind-blowing new ground for the X-Men. Where do they meet? How does it all tie together? Where are we headed next, Charlie!? We asked X-Men group editor Jordan D. White all those highly quality queries and more—and he told us ten things about the brand-new books.

HOUSE OF X #2/POWERS OF X #2
HOUSE OF X #2/POWERS OF X #2

Here's a breezy breakdown, bub!

  1. HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X are going to change everything for Mutantkind.
  2. HOUSE OF X focuses on the big changes happening in the present; POWERS OF X explores the past, present, and future.
  3. HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X tell an interwoven story that reads best as a weekly one-two punch.
  4. HOUSE OF X #1 reveals Professor X's long-term plan to establish a mutant homeworld on Krakoa...
  5. POWERS OF X unveils how Professor X set up that plan, and how it changes the course of mutant existence.
  6. Modern Marvel master Jonathan Hickman is writing both series, artist Pepe Larraz is pencilling HOUSE OF X, artist R.B. Silva is pencilling POWERS OF X, and Marte Gracia is coloring each book.
  7. Groundshaking surprises are coming to the series, and once everything settles, these two books will form the bedrock of everything X-Men for years to come.
  8. Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva are establishing the core aesthetic of the X-Men for every new series and X-Men story coming from the House of Ideas.
  9. These series capture what makes the X-Men so great, but redefines the team and character in a way that makes it feel completely new.
  10. After HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, the Dawn of X begins with six new series emerging to carry on the story of the new status quo set for Mutantkind.
