'Original X-Men' #1 First Look Sends the Team on a Mission from the Phoenix

In a special first look at 'Original X-Men' #1, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Beast, and Angel receive a Multiversal mission from the Phoenix.

Thanks to the Phoenix Force, CyclopsMarvel Girl, BeastIceman, and Angel will defy space and time once again.

Once, this team of X-Men traveled into to the Marvel Universe's present and met their future selves. Now, in ORIGINAL X-MEN (2023) #1 by Christos Gage and Greg Land, they will find themselves in another universe entirely. Sent across the Multiverse by the Phoenix Force, the original five X-Men will face a challenge unlike any they've seen before—and the stakes couldn't be higher.

A special first look at ORIGINAL X-MEN (2023) #1 finds the X-Men running right into the Phoenix in a mind-bending, kaleidoscopic environment. In one page, Phoenix brings down the fire, revealing multiple versions of herself to the immobilized X-Men. In another, she runs through several memories, including ones where the Phoenix obliterated villains such as Thanos and Ultron. Finally, she speaks directly to the younger Jean before sending them on their way.

See the original five X-Men confront the power of the Phoenix in a special first look at ORIGINAL X-MEN #1 below!
