The Xenogenesis: Part 1 of 5 wiki last edited by OmniaMutantur on 05/20/13 11:05PM View full history

THE HEROIC AGE IS HERE! The superstar team of Warren Ellis and Kaare Andrews (SPIDER-MAN: REIGN) take X-Men into the Heroic Age! Something’s happening in the tiny East African city of Mbangwi.

Astonishing X-Men Xenogenesis Issue 1 0

Once upon a time there was a boy who picked up a book called Astonishing X-Men by Joss Whedon and John Cassidy.
