The X-Men Gain the Upper Hand Against Orchis in 'Fall of the House of X' #3 and 'Rise of the Powers of X' #3

Check out the covers and learn more about March's installments of 'Fall of the House of X' and 'Rise of the Powers of X,' the two series that will serve as the conclusion of the X-Men's Krakoan Era.

Due to the sinister machinations of the anti-mutant supervillain group Orchis, mutantkind has fallen harder than ever before—but soon, the X-Men will have their revenge as the revolutionary Krakoan Age comes to its explosive end!

Just as Jonathan Hickman boldly kicked it off in 2019 in twin series, HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, the finale of the Krakoan Age will be told across two intertwined series starting in January: FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X and RISE OF THE POWERS OF X. The two five-issue limited series will deliver a breathtaking saga across mutant history and future as the X-Men of today and tomorrow wage the final war against extinction across their entire existence! 

Gerry Duggan and Lucas Werneck’s FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X sees a classic lineup of X-Men embark on a daring mission to bring down Orchis for good and restore hope to mutantkind. Meanwhile, Kieron Gillen and R.B. Silva’s RISE OF THE POWERS OF X takes readers on a sense-shattering journey beyond space and time as an ambitious plan is put in action to prevent the darkest of futures from coming to pass. It’s a who’s who of current mutant mastermind storytellers, and they’re holding nothing back as they close out Krakoa down in epic style and position the X-Men for their all-new era launching later next year!

Today, fans can peek ahead at the covers for FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X #3 and RISE OF THE POWERS OF X #3, both arriving in March.
