The X-Men are choosing sides, and writer Cullen Bunn hopes readers do to, in CIVIL WAR: X-MEN #1. The Inhumans have a new seer, and Magneto fears this gives the Inhumans an edge over mutants. So, being magneto, he sets out to level the playing field. But not ALL the mutants agree with him.
It’s Mutant vs Mutant vs Inhuman in this new tie-in series from Cullen Bunn and Andrea Broccardo.
Here’s the official release from Marvel.
The X-Men Enter the Fray in CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1!
New York, NY—March 7th, 2016 — As the heroes of the Marvel Universe stand against one another, the Mutants will face their own war. This June, the X-Men prepare for war in CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1 – a new Civil War II series from writer Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men) and artist Andrea Broccardo (Kanan: The Last Padawan)!
Terrigen Mists encircle the globe, igniting the Inhuman race while simultaneously crippling mutantkind. As conflict between the two nations simmers below the surface, a new Inhuman with the ability to profile the future has emerged. As heroes of the Marvel Universe battle over whether to use this Inhuman’s ability or not – one mutant will take matters into his own hands. Fearing this untapped power may tip the scales in the Inhumans’ favor – Magneto is willing to wage war with the Inhumans and even his own kind to prevent that from coming to pass!
“I certainly hope this story divides the fans in terms of who is ‘right’,” says writer Cullen Bunn in an upcoming interview with Marvel.com. “One of the things I’m excited about with Civil War II is that there are so many questions, debates, and positions that are going to rise from it. In Civil War II: X-Men we’ll focus on the mutants and the specific positions they are taking.”
No longer sitting on the sidelines, Magneto will use his terrifying and awesome power to take mutantkind’s fate into his own hands! Though he may be surprised who stands with him…and who stands against him! The battle lines are drawn this June in CIVIL WAR II: X-MEN #1!
