ResurrXion is both the biggest “we better fit X into this event name” stretch in Marvel history, and a welcome return to a less endangered mutant race (as if they’re ever truly safe). Escalating genocide has been rushing headlong towards the X-Men since House of M and Decimation in 2005, with the post Secret Wars (2015) mutants under constant threat of an Inhuman terrigenesis plague cloud.
Starting with ResurrXion, the X-Men will regroup into classic teams more familiar to fans of the comic in the late 80’s and 90’s. Below you’ll find the comics that help explain where the X-Men are coming from to get to this point, as well as a reading order for the new event and presumed jumping on launch.
