Third Eye Guide to X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE


Chris Claremont returns to the X-MEN as the BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL MUTANTS reunion begins!

With big things on the way in the upcoming UNCANNY X-MEN #1, Marvel is laying the ground work for some major heavyweight bad guys to be the focus of the X-Verse in 2019, and what better way to reintroduce some of our favorites than to have the legendary CHRIS CLAREMONT on board, right?

The first in a series of one-shots coming out this October to reunite the BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL MUTANTS, X-MEN BLACK begins with MAGNETO!

For years, Magneto has done everything he can to achieve his goals for mutant domination. But now Magneto has declared that enough is enough.

So what revolutionary plan does Magneto have that will change the face of mutantkind? And will anyone be able to stop him? Will anyone want to?

It continues on 10/10/18 with X-MEN BLACK MOJO #1!

The next in line to get their grand reintroduction is MOJO, and admittedly, he’s probably our least favorite of the bunch — but, c’mon: Nick Bradshaw drawing MOJO? Now THAT is awesome!

That’s right – that most successful producer ever to pack the cross-time airwaves, the man himself, MOJO, has yet another plan in place the boost his ratings at the X-Men’s expense!

 

One of the best of the bunch arrives with Chapter 3 in X-MEN BLACK: MYSTIQUE #1 on 10/17/18

Of course, one of the ones that is gonna be the raddest — ’cause lets face it: she rules, is the X-MEN BLACK: MYSTIQUE!

hat’s a day in the life for Raven Darkholme, A.K.A. Mystique? Brutal kills, revenge-fueled chills, seductive thrills…and that’s all before breakfast! Award-winning author Seanan McGuire (X-MEN GOLD ANNUAL #2) and rising star Marco Failla take Marvel’s multifaceted mutant murderess for a spin!

Our personal favorite is set to be Chapter 4 in X-MEN BLACK: JUGGERNAUT #1 on 10/24/18

Our personal favorite of the bunch is set to be the JUGGERNAUT one-shot, because there’s just NOT enough of ol’ Cain Marko in comics these days, and we’re pumped to see an entire one-shot featuring him!

Nothing can stop the Juggernaut…
…until now.

What has finally stopped Cain Marko in his tracks? You’ll have to see to believe, but we can promise you it’s gonna involve nothing but punching for the Juggernaut! PLUS: Part 4 of X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE!

 

The series concludes with X-MEN BLACK: EMMA FROST #1 on 10/31/18 with Chapter 5

The final one-shot arrives on Halloween, and you can bet — big stuff follows!

Before she was an X-Man, Emma Frost was White Queen of the Hellfire Club where she labored under the yolk of Sebastian Shaw, the Black King.

Now she sets her sights on the club, determined to tear down the organization that wronged her…if she can convince the X-Men to help out.

PLUS: Part 5 of X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE!

WHAT IS X-MEN BLACK: APOCALYPSE? 

A 5-part special back-up story runs through each X-MEN BLACK ONE-SHOT.

We haven’t seen Apocalypse in nearly 3 years.. which in comic time; is quite a while.

We’re not sure which incarnation of En Sabah Nur is going to be returning…

But, we’re betting that it’s going to be a much more back-to-basics classic riff on the character.

Just judging from the tone of X-Men Black, and honestly: we’re stoked about that!

But, hey, just about any APOCALYPSE is awesome, right? OK, maybe not any…
