Marvel Games Comic Connection: House of X/Powers of X
Learn more about the comics-influenced event sweeping MARVEL Future Fight!
Hello, True Believers, and welcome to the next installment of our very own Marvel Games Comic Connection!
During this time of social distancing, I hope you are safely playing games at home, and speaking of homes, have you eXperienced the all-new, all-different HOUSE OF X event that has stormed MARVEL Future Fight?
If so, you’ve seen not only new characters like Professor X, Mister Sinister and Mystique, but also new costumes for Jean Grey, Magneto, Nimrod the Sentinel and Wolverine. But where do these fresh looks come from? Just like us, the amazing friends we collaborate with on each game are all huge fans of Marvel comics, in this case, it was the team at Netmarble working with us to bring new content inspired by the critically acclaimed HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X stories that recently rocked and revamped the X-Men family of titles.
Led by visionary “Head of X” writer Jonathan Hickman, your favorite mutant heroes have all united — and yes, have even gone as far as welcoming their fiercest foes, including Magneto and Mister Sinister, into their midst — as they’ve declared themselves a sovereign nation on the living mutant island of Krakoa. There are so many more mind-blowing elements to this historic story, but rather than spoil it for you, why not read it yourself?
Because Marvel wants to make sure you can read our captivating comics in the format that fits each True Believer, you have many options to enter the party. First, players of MARVEL Future Fight can redeem a code to read HOUSE OF X #1 for free, until April 14! Download the game and check your inbox for details on how to redeem the comic.
If you’re intrigued after that and thirst for more, and believe me you will, you can purchase the X-MEN: HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X hardcover collection and the DAWN OF X softcover collections from a friendly neighborhood (brick-and-mortar or online) retailer.
If it’s a digital read you crave, you can check out the issues in the Marvel Unlimited app and/or the huge sale going on in the Marvel Comics app or even buy the issues via Comixology. Whether you’re into print or digital (or hey, why not both), the doors to the HOUSE OF X are now wide open.
Okay, guys, that’s it for this week! Enjoy the comics, tell your friends (and even your enemies) and we’ll see you back here soon for another chapter in Marvel Games Comic Connection. Happy reading and gaming!
