The 'Fall of the House of X' is here! Check out the covers and story descriptions for 'X-Men' and 'Avengers' issues coming this April as part of the finale of the X-Men's Krakoa Era.
By now, fans have experienced the explosive debut issues of FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X and RISE OF THE POWERS OF X, but these twin series are only the beginning of the dramatic finale to the X-Men’s acclaimed Krakoa Era!
Across exciting new limited series and tie-in issues of ongoing series, this crucial war for mutantkind’s future will unfold in a grand tapestry of brave missions, shocking revelations, and heartbreaking defeats. With the X-Men embracing a new destiny this summer, fans won’t want to miss single moment of this epic ending to an unforgettable period of their 60-year history.
The most glorious moments of the Krakoan Age are still ahead and today, fans can learn about the various X-Men related issues hitting stands in April. A stacked team of powerhouse X-Men join forces against Orchis in X-MEN #33, the success of Storm’s divine mission to bring back Magneto is revealed in RESURRECTION OF MAGNETO #4, a group of fallen X-Men confront death again in DEAD X-MEN #4, and a threat only mutantkind’s greatest soldiers can handle is unleashed in CABLE #3. In addition, the Phoenix Force burns away the remaining mysteries of the Krakoan Age in X-MEN FOREVER #2.
The mythos-shattering events of FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X and RISE OF THE POWERS OF X will also bleed out into the wider Marvel Universe as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes join the fray in AVENGERS #11 and AVENGERS #12 while Tony Stark confronts his technology’s own role in Krakoa’s downfall in INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #17.
Also in April are new pulse-pounding chapters of SABRETOOTH WAR! With last week’s opening chapter, WOLVERINE #41, fans saw why SABRETOOTH WAR was billed as the most violent Wolverine story ever told! Wolverine and Sabretooth’s momentous showdown only gets bloodier as this 10-part epic rages on in WOLVERINE #47 and #48, and it’s all leading up to the milestone WOLVERINE #50 in May!
The Fall of X comes for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! The Avengers have hung in space over the Earth, a sword of Damocles over Orchis, for too long. But knowing they had only one chance to strike, they waited while Iron Man prepared. Now, on his signal, it is time, and the Avengers only know one way to strike: hard!
