The second era of X-Men known as the Reign of X is coming to an end in March 2022 and its end will mean the beginning of Destiny of X. Last week, Marvel teased possible futures for characters like Wolverine and Hope as well as Mr. Sinister and Magneto, but today we’ve got even more details to share.
In 2022, the X-Men line grows as Immortal X-Men, Knights of X, Legion of X, and X-Men Red are all on the way along with a new creative team taking over on Marauders, and revolutionary status quo changes for continuing titles X-Men, X-Force, New Mutants, and Wolverine.
If you’re a reader of X-Men Monday, today’s edition revealed the information was on the way, along with Si Spurrier who hinted at the news as well. Could Spurrier be writing one or more of these series?
Check out a teaser by Leini Francis Yu and Sunny Gho below which may have many hints to dig into for the upcoming event. Notably, Deadpool is in the group shot, as well as the new mutant Somnus created by Steve Orlando and Luciano Vecchio.
