THE STORY: Humankind's time on Earth is nearly at its end. Within a half decade, they will be extinct, replaced by their genetically gifted cousins: mutants! With this discovery, the very fabric of society begins to fray. And as fear and paranoia grows by the day, it will soon tear! Charles Xavier has been forced to evolve his X-Men. But in the shadows, something beckons to him. A mutant more powerful - and more depraved - than he ever could have foreseen. And very soon, that mutant will threaten his people, his world and his every perception!
New creators, new characters, new costumes, a new logo, a new direction... this is the start of it all!
THE CREATORS: Grant Morrison remade the JLA. Frank Quitely made Authority a must-read. Just imagine what they'll do together to the X-Men!
