It’s Time! Your First Look At X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1!

Marvel has released a first look at X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1! From the creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Brian Wood, Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo, David Lopez and Giuseppe Camuncoli, comes an event  so exhilarating,  and so groundbreaking that fans will be talking about it for years to come!

Hank McCoy brought the original X-Men into the present in the hopes of changing the course of history and stopping Scott Summer’s mutant revolution before it even begins. But as the young and confused X-Men try to cope with their devastating futures, the team begins to unravel from the inside. And just as mutant civil war is about to hit its boiling point, an unexpected third party comes in to change the game—the future X-Men! They’ve traveled back in time with a warning—the original X-Men need to go back to their rightful time or they will be the final nail in mutantkind’s coffin. They risked everything to come to the past and won’t leave until the All-New X-Men are back in the past.

This September, celebrate the X-Men’s 50th anniversary with the first major X-Men crossover event in over three years—X-Men: Battle of the Atom! From the creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Brian Wood, Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo, David Lopez and Giuseppe Camuncoli, comes an event  so exhilarating,  and so groundbreaking that fans will be talking about this for years to come!

Editor Nick Lowe described the event this way:

If All-New X-Men #1 was the shot heard round the world, X-Men Battle Of The Atom is Valley Forge. And there’s no group of creators I’d rather go to war with than Brian, Jason and Brian. And that doesn’t even mention the murderer’s row of artists.

Hank McCoy brought the original X-Men into the present in the hopes of changing the course of history and stopping Scott Summer’s mutant revolution before it even begins. But as the young and confused X-Men try to cope with their devastating futures, the team begins to unravel from the inside. And just as mutant civil war is about to hit it’s boiling point, an unexpected third party comes in to change the game—the future X-Men! They’ve traveled back in time with a warning—the original X-Men need to go back to their rightful time or they will be the final nail in mutantkind’s coffin.
