Marvel Comics Reveals Epic UNCANNY X-MEN #700 Cover Art And First Details Ahead Of Planned Relaunch

In July 2019, the world of the X-Men was shattered and reborn on Krakoa in the pages of House of X from visionary writer Jonathan Hickman. In the years since, we’ve experienced a new age of mutant storytelling, filled with bold ideas, astonishing character developments, and revolutionary new takes on the mutant metaphor.

It’s also provided Marvel Studios with a lot of content to adapt for its eventual reboot of the X-Men in theaters!

Now, the next seminal shift in the history of the X-Men is on the horizon, but first, Marvel Comics will present the final act of the Krakoan Age this June in X-Men #35.

This will also be the milestone 700th issue of Uncanny X-Men and will feature an epic-length story by acclaimed writers and artists who shaped the Krakoan Age including Gerry Duggan, Kieron Gillen, Al Ewing, Lucas Werneck, Joshua Cassara, and more. The giant-sized issue will also include a story of family by legendary writer Chris Claremont and offer a glimpse of things to come in the new X-Men titles launching this summer.

“All good things must come to an end, and as good of a thing as the Krakoan era has been for mutantkind…its time has come at last,” reads the solicitation text. “The tragedy and triumph of Fall of the House of X, the madness and mystery of Rise of the Powers of X…they have all come to their end and led to this moment that will change the future of mutantkind for years to come.”

On closing out this period of the mutant mythos, Senior Editor Jordan D. White said, “Being a part of the Krakoan experiment has been a true thrill. Honestly – in many ways it echoed the experience of mutantkind itself in the era. We worked differently, we tried new things, we survived incredible new experiences.”

“I consider myself extremely fortunate to have worked with such fantastically talented creators throughout the era, and working on the glorious ending is truly bittersweet,” he concluded. “I will miss it with my whole heart, but I do know…Krakoa will live on within us forever.”
