X-men: Age Of X

Hurry - Only 2 left in stock!
In a world where the X-Men never existed and mutantkind has been hunted to extinction, the few remaining mutants have banded together to make their last stand. They spend each day securing the walls of their stronghold, Fortress X, beating back the anti-mutant forces that would see them wiped out. But when a conspiracy is discovered within Fortress X itself, could it be that mutantkind's last bastion will crumble from the inside out?

Product Details


Set in a darker version of the Marvel universe, this tale offers radically new interpretations of familiar characters: Cyclops is a loose cannon with a vengeful streak; Wolverine is a humbled and depressed bartender; and Magneto-the longtime X-Men rival-is the ruler of Fortress X, the last bastion of mutant safety. What's left of mutantkind has taken refuge in the massive structure and must repel daily attacks by oppressive human forces. When a mutant dares to step outside and manages to come back alive, everything once accepted as true is called into question, and the last of the mutants stand on the brink of self-destruction as loyalties are questioned and secrets revealed. Mann and Steve Kurth bring us a fully realized postapocalyptic world that is detailed enough to draw the reader into the action while providing a wide view of battles and conveying a sense of survival and desperation. Verdict For lapsed comics readers, the reinvented characters may be too much of a change from their cherished memories, but this is a great book for fans of psychological sf and the perfect book for those who crave an exciting and unique story-even if they're not X-fans.-M.
