THE X-TREME TEAM IS BACK! Legendary X-scribe Chris Claremont reunites with artistic dynamo Salvador Larroca for an all-new story set just after the groundbreaking original run of X-TREME X-MEN! A powerful psychic attack on Kitty Pryde from her old enemy Ogun brings the X-Treme team back together for a high-stakes mission…but what secret is Ogun hiding, and will even the combined might of Bishop, Sage, Gambit, Rogue, Rachel Summers, Storm, and Wolverine be enough to stop his insidious plan?

THE U-MEN HAVE THE NEW MUTANTS IN THEIR CLUTCHES! The U-Men, a fanatical organization of humans hell-bent on becoming the physically superior species by stealing mutants’ power, have captured Escapade and the New Mutants. Now imprisoned on their base, Shela must use her burgeoning yet unpredictable powers to help her new friends escape. But Cerebella has a traumatic history with the U-Men, and it’ll take more than a power swap to free her from that legacy.

Marauders #9

Captain Pryde and the Marauders have vowed to save Threshold and all its mutants, no matter the odds. But maybe they should’ve checked those odds first! Witness the origins of Threshold and of mutantkind itself! And fight to protect those origins as the Marauders find they’re not the only castaways from the future to take root in the deep past. All this…and the first appearance of GROVE, without whom the Krakoan era wouldn’t exist!

VOTE. DIE. REPEAT. Putting the “Meat” in office meeting. Trust me, bad spelling is the least of the Quiet Council’s problems as everything hits the fan.
