Announced at Marvel’s X-Men panel today, X-Men: Battle of the Atom is coming this September. Check out the full details below.
X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1 Cover
X-Men: Battle of the Atom will see what happens when it’s finally time for the original X-Men to go back to their own time, with the help of the future X-Men. Now we have the present-day X-Men who are going to get a visit from their future selves that have one mission which is to send the original X-Men back where they belong and prevent a terrible future. The X-Men are no strangers to time travel and the effects, but seems that they can never get it right or in their favor.
The crossover is being handled by Bendis, Jason Aaron, Brian Wood, and will happen in these books:
- X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1
- Uncanny X-Men #12-13
- All-New X-Men #16-17
- Wolverine & The X-Men #36-37
- X-Men # 5-6
- X-Men: Battle of The Atom #2
The story begins in September and ends in October. Issue #1 will be drawn by Frank Cho. Marvel promises that this story will pay off many of the threads that Bendis has been seeding since he began his run, and of course, set up a great many things to come.
Marvel showed off some early designs of the X-Men from the future:
