X-MEN (2019) #14

X OF SWORDS Chapter 12. The Lovers. A Garden. A chasm of secrets. Apocalypse and estranged wife “Annihilation” meet under the evening sky of the Starlight Citadel to address their falling out millennia ago. A romantic setting, sure, but Annihilation has her side of the story to tell. How did Arakko crumble all those years ago, and what stakes are at play today? For more of this couple’s backstory read our breakdown of X OF SWORDS: STASIS!

MARAUDERS (2019) #14

X OF SWORDS Chapter 13. The opponents are well met at Saturnyne’s dinner party of deception, as the champions of Krakoa and Arakko booze, schmooze, and size each other up. The chemistry between Storm and Death is palpable, but there’s a game to be won. Wolverine makes a regrettable choice.

AVENGERS (2018) #38

Exit “The Age of Khonshu.” Enter the Phoenix. The Avengers have saved Earth from the god of the Moon, but the return of a certain planet-burning firebird isn’t going to give them much time to catch their breath. Plus: The devil may be dead, but the threat of Mephisto lingers on, with a legacy interwoven in heretofore untold chapters of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

The ancient Phoenix Force in AVENGERS #38.


Spinning out of EMPYRE, Knull’s domain begins! For weeks, chaos engulfed Earth and space alike. First, the corpse of serial killer Cletus Kasady was bonded to a remnant of a mysteriously powerful alien symbiote, resurrecting his psychotic alter ego, Carnage. Then, the generations-long KREE/SKRULL WAR reached a brutal head on Earth, with shocking and unforeseen consequences. Meanwhile, one ancient entity at the edge of the universe has awoken. Born of hate and darkness, it’s the entity that feeds on chaos and brutality—and one group of unlucky fighters is about to face it head-on…
