We’ve been totally loving the direction of both UNCANNY X-MEN and ALL NEW X-MEN, so when we saw that Marvel was rolling out their biggest X-MEN event since the now-classic MESSIAH COMPLEX… we knew were in for a real treat.
Starting this September, BATTLE OF THE ATOM is a 10-chapter X-MEN crossover event that will run run through ALL NEW X-MEN, UNCANNY X-MEN, X-MEN, and WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN.
Helmed by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, the writer behind ALL NEW X-MEN and UNCANNY X-MEN, this 10-part crossover will chronicle the X-Men of the future traveling to the present day in order to force the All New X-Men (the younger versions of Scott, Jean, and so on, that’ve been pulled from the past and dropped into the present) to return to their rightful time, as their presence in the current timeline will result in disastrous consequences.
What’s even cooler is some of the big things that this storyline is going to lead to, including the much-rumored combining of all the various alternate X-MEN futures into one concrete future. From DAYS OF FUTURE PAST to AGE OF APOCALYPSE, we’re expecting some very interesting stuff.
Not to mention, with the DAYS OF FUTURE PAST film on the way, you can bet that the events of this epic storyline will have an influence on the direction of the film, as much as the now-classic X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST storyline does.
This is shaping up to be, quite possibly, the best X-MEN storyline in over a decade, and we cannot wait to see how it comes to be. We haven’t been this pumped for an X-MEN event since SECOND COMING.
