Uncanny X-Men #12 leads into X-crossover Age of X-Man

What does 2019 hold for Marvel’s X-Men? Some high strangeness from the looks of it, as Age of X-Man dawns after Uncanny’s Last X-Men issue.

Return to X

Last week we told you about Devastation, a single issue arc that would be hitting the just relaunched Uncanny X-Men in 2019. Now we know a little more about that, as a returning Cyclops will be paired with the reborn Wolverine in Uncanny #12. That’ll be called The Last X-Men.

“This is the fight to save mutantkind, the fight to restore their legacy, and this is the fight for their lives.

This is forever.” – Matthew Rosenberg

Sounds pretty interesting. And it’s also cool to see two of the most iconic X-Men back in action, together. Even so though, there’s something hitting after it that sounds even more intriguing. And, honestly, super-weird.

Age of X-Man

We’ve had Age of Apocalypse and Age of Ultron before, and now we’re on the eve of Age of X-Man.

If you’ve been reading Marvel’s X-books as of late, then you’ve seen the events surrounding Cable. If you haven’t, then all you really have to know is that Cable was murdered by a younger version of himself. Apparently he blamed himself for allowing the timestream to become polluted with the likes of the time-displaced X-Men. Can’t blame him really.

Just before that though, Cable teamed with the Age of Apocalypse refugee that is his younger self, Nathaniel Grey or X-Man. And now it looks like that particular version of the Summers kin is back in a very big way. Like, in a “take over the Marvel Universe and replace it with his own thing” kind of way.

The story will play out (so far) in a series of mini-series’ beginning in February. Each will run five issues, so this is a big time event series. Oh, and each one looks… well they all look really, really, weird.

The Age of X-Man dawns…and the X-Men cannot stop it.

After the apocalyptic dissolution of the X-Men comes…AGE OF X-MAN!
