X-Men Extermination Event Will Tie Into Every Uncanny X-Men Story

X-Men Extermination Event Will Tie Into Every Uncanny X-Men Story

Marvel is diving into its back catalog for the X-Men event series Extermination. Not only will writer Ed Brisson and artist Pepe Larraz deal with the fallout from the time-displaced X-Men of Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Angel and Iceman not returning to their original timeline, but they will also connect Extermination to every single Uncanny X-Men story ever told.

“Our mandate going into this was, ‘Your back issues matter,'” Brisson told “Every single Uncanny X-Men story involving the Original Five X-Men matters. If the X-Men are here, then they’re not where they’re supposed to be, fighting those they’re supposed to fight. What happens when that past starts to unravel? What’s the butterfly effect on our present?”

Brisson would go on to discuss how each X-Man has undergone a fundamental change during their time in the present-day. “In a lot of ways, they’re still the wide-eyed kids they’ve always been, but having spent several years in our present, they’ve changed their perspective on a lot of things,” he said. “Jean and Scotty aren’t the classic couple they’ve always been, Hank’s been experimenting with magic, Warren’s got himself some serious upgrades, and Bobby’s been able to open up about himself in ways that would not have been easy for him to do back in their time.”

The Mark Brooks cover of Extermination #2 teases the return of the villain Ahab, with the original X-Men as his loyal mutant-hunting Hounds.

Marvel recently announced select X-Men titles will include Extermination post-credits scenes, which take place 20 years into the future and sees the X-Men being hunted by a swarm of Sentinels.

These prelude scenes will lead to the release of Extermination #1 by writer Ed Brisson and artist Pepe Larraz on August 15. Extermination #2, featuring the return of Ahab, goes on sale two weeks later on August 29.
