Mutantkind Faces Its Fiery Destiny in All-New 'Inferno' Trailer

Jonathan Hickman’s 'Inferno' #1 arrives on September 29!

On September 29, the X-Men’s world will go up in flames in INFERNO #1!

Crafted by visionary writer Jonathan Hickman, this four-issue limited series will serve as the climactic finale of Hickman’s bold X-Men era that began with 2019’s transformative HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X. Hickman will team up with a different superstar artist on each giant-sized issue, starting with Valerio Schiti, known for his acclaimed work on titles such as S.W.O.R.D. and EMPYRE.

A high-stakes mutant drama, INFERNO will provide the startling payoff to long-running plotlines including Mystique’s quest to be reunited with Destiny and startling shakeups to the Quiet Council. Alliances will be broken, secrets will be revealed, and the once-bright future of mutantkind will be endangered like never before. Fans can get their first look at this revelatory saga in the all-new INFERNO trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork (also seen in the gallery below). 

"I’m very excited that we’re finally getting to share with everyone the follow-up to HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X,” Hickman said. “The story is 160 pages over four issues drawn exquisitely by Valerio Schiti, R.B. Silva and Stefano Caselli. I cannot wait for people to read it.”

INFERNO will ignite, and then rage, until it reaches its conclusion with issue #4—a story that also signals the end of Jonathan Hickman’s transformative work on the X-Men universe.

December 29's INFERNO #4, the climactic finale, will unite Hickman and Schiti as they team up to put some of mutantkind’s biggest mysteries to rest.

Since HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, Hickman has reshaped the X-Men franchise and ushered in one of its boldest eras yet. And fans can expect more revelations from the past lives of Moira MacTaggert all while the unstoppable threat Nimrod finally makes his move. 

A day of reckoning is upon mutantkind. Be there for this game-changing story when it all begins with INFERNO #1, hitting stands on September 29!
