It’s I v X this time as Inhumans vs X-Men kicks off in December.
Inhumans vs X-Men
Two super-powered races clash this December as Mutantkind and Inhumanity collide with the fates of their species at stake! Prepare for battle as Charles Soule (Uncanny Inhumans), Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men) and Leinil Yu (Secret Invasion) bring you the two groups to war in the explosive INHUMANS VS. X-MEN #1!
The Terrigen Mists roll across the planet, birthing new Inhumans and poisoning the planet’s Mutants. Tensions are about to reach their boiling point as time is running out! Terrigen is on the verge of reaching a saturation point in the Earth’s atmosphere. The ultimatum is clear – the X-Men must destroy the mists, or risk Earth becoming forever poisonous to their kind. With their backs to the wall, it’s win now…or go extinct. Only one problem – the Inhumans won’t go down without a fight! And they’re calling in everyone!
Time for these two Marvel mainstays to put it all on the line as they go head to head. Neither can survive while the other persists. Who will be left standing? It’s all been leading to this! The ultimate war for survival kicks off on December 14th in INHUMANS VS. X-MEN #1!
This one’s pivotal people. No really, I’m serious. If you’re an X-Men fan, then this is one crossover that could be a pivotal one in the history of the mutant portion of the Marvel U. I had assumed that that would mean that the X-Men would be making an exit, but not anymore.
It did seem that way though, as the X-Men in general haven’t been all that big of a part of things in recent years. Even when a crossover focused on them, like AvX, they kind of came off as villains. And then when the mutant-killing Terrigen Mists encircled the globe? Well I kind of thought that was the end for X. But not so.
With the revelation of the ResurrXion event coming in 2017, it actually looks as though the X-Men are coming back in a very big way. And for that reason alone, IvX becomes an even bigger crossover. X-fans should be paying attention to this one.
