The first covers to twin X-Men series by Jonathan Hickman have been finally revealed by Marvel Comics. The series, titled as House of X and Powers of X, will be diving deep into the grand plan laid down by Charles Xavier for the Mutants. All X-Men fans would remember how Xavier was resurrected back from dead in Fantomex’s body, and is now known as X. Powers of X will feature “the past, present and future” of Mutants. It will, in a way, change the perspective of every fan towards X-Men.

“Since the release of Uncanny X-Men #1, there have been four seminal moments in the history of the X-Men. Giant-Size X-Men. X-Men. Age of Apocalypse. New X-Men. Four iconic series that introduced a new era for Marvel’s mutants and revolutionized the X-Men. In House of X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind…one that will bring mutants out of the shadow of mankind and into the light once more.”
“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 CB Cebulski said when the announcement was made. “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.”
