House of X will see Charles Xavier unveil “his master plan for mutantkind…one that will bring mutants out of the shadow of mankind and into the light once more.” Powers of X will pull back the curtain on “the secret past, present, and future of mutantkind, changing the way you look at every X-Men story before and after.” Along with the description also comes the covers to July’s House of X #1 and Powers of X #1, by Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva, respectively.
Marvel announced Hickman would be joining the X-Men franchise at C2E2 in Chicago. “We are excited to have Jon back with the Marvel family, and we could not have asked for a better creative team to help usher the X-Men into a whole new era,” Marvel Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski said in a statement. “While we can’t reveal too much about the story just yet, these new stories will redefine the X-Men and their place in the Marvel Universe. This is a historic moment both new and passionate fans won’t want to miss.”
