Word of this 'event' was released back during C2E2. Brian Michael Bendis has been doing some great things in ALL-NEW X-MEN and UNCANNY X-MEN. Now it looks like some repercussions from Hank McCoy's actions of bringing the original X-Men from the past to the future are about to surface. As if X-Men from two time periods wasn't enough, we're about to see a third - from the future.

Check out the first look released by Marvel.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1! From the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Brian Wood, Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo, David Lopez & Giuseppe Camuncoli, comes an event so exhilarating, and so groundbreaking that fans will be talking about it for years to come!

Hank McCoy brought the original X-Men into the present in the hopes of changing the course of history and stopping Scott Summer’s mutant revolution before it even begins. But as the young and confused X-Men try to cope with their devastating futures, the team begins to unravel from the inside. And just as mutant civil war is about to hit its boiling point, an unexpected third party comes in to change the game—the future X-Men! They’ve traveled back in time with a warning—the original X-Men need to go back to their rightful time or they will be the final nail in mutantkind’s coffin. They risked everything to come to the past and won’t leave until the All-New X-Men are back in the past.

Beginning in September and ending in October, no fan can miss this 10-part weekly event:

• Part 1: X-Men Battle of the Atom #1

• Part 2: All-New X-Men #16

• Part 3: X-Men #5

• Part 4: Uncanny X-Men #12

• Part 5: Wolverine & The X-Men #36

• Part 6: All-New X-Men #17

• Part 7: X-Men # 6

• Part 8: Uncanny X-Men #13

• Part 9: Wolverine & The X-Men #37

• Part 10: X-Men: Battle of The Atom #2

Three X-Men universes collide in the biggest war mutantkind has ever seen, and you won’t believe how it all plays out. One thing’s for sure—no reader will come out unscathed!

Who will become unlikely allies? What is S.H.I.E.L.D.’s master plan? What are the consequences for altering time and space? Most importantly, what will determine the fate of our favorite superheroes?

It’s monumental! It’s earth-shattering! It’s X-Men: Battle of the Atom

Frankly, in the past couple of years I have grown tired of the X-Men (besides Wolverine).

There incessant, puerile, arguments with each other that mirror soap operas have worn thing with me. Most of them have become hypocrites (Cyclops and Beast are glowing paragons of this), and their constant whining and arguing with the Avengers for not holding their hands like children doesn't make me pity them, it just makes me grow less fond of them.

Honestly, I really don't understand why the X-Men are focusing on regular humans hating them, and thinking that they are their biggest threat, because the X-Men are their own worst enemies.

You complain that Cyclops and Beast are hypocrites but what about Wolverine? The savage, honorable samurai, headmaster, family man, loner, who is part of two teams (Avengers & X-Men) that don't kill but he slaughters people in the hundreds (even after x-force).

The X-Men are not constantly whining that the Avengers aren't helping at all. Most of the time they don't want anything to do with them.

The whole point of the X-Men was mutant prejudice. If that isn't the focus of the series then they would be just like the Avengers.

@osian2:

Wolverine kills people if it has to be done. That's how it has always been for him. And yes, the X-men are always constantly having arguments with the Avengers about not supporting their cause. Quite frankly, they just look like whiny children. All X-Men stories now are about them arguing among each other. It's grating to read.

@wolverine08: and civil war, its aftermath, and secret invasion, etc are.exactly? The avengers being perfectly happy with one another?

The x-men dont wan the avengers involved with their stuff. That was the whole point of AvX. The X-men believed it was their problem and didnt want the avengers to help or deal with it, because whenever its been a mutant problem before they were the only ones to deal with it.

#21 Posted by Osian2 (455 posts) - - Show Bio

@wolverine08: Wolverine kills when he believes it needs to be done even if nobody else agrees. There are also countless occasions where he could have incapacitated enemies rather than kill them.

The X-Men are not constantly arguing with the Avengers. Other than in AVX they haven't had much interaction with them and in the current x-books the Avengers have appeared for about 1 issue and then the series would move on.

Other than the crossover between All New and Uncanny the X-men haven't been arguing with each other.

@shadowx:

I'm not saying the Avengers don't argue from time to time, but unless your blind, it's quite obvious that for at least the past 5 years all the X-Men have is argue among each other like immature teenagers.

@osian2: Like I said before, if Wolverine thinks someone is threat, and they need to be put down, he'll kill them regardless of what others think. He won't do the job half way and incapaciate enemies, he'll finish the job done and kill. That's how he has done it for the 120-125 years he has been alive, and that's how he'll keep doing it until he's dead. Just look at Uncanny Avengers for an example of X-Men whining at Avengers. Rogue(an X-Man) has wanted to basically rip Scarlet Witch's head for no other apparent reasons than that she is an Avenger.

@dr_cheesesteak: why don't you do it like I do with all Marvel books... Wait for the trade (or HC)!

In that way you get six in a nice hardcover shelf ready for a few bucks less, since you always get HCs/trades really cheap, even right when they come out. Buying the floppies is such a hassle, man and most books read way better collected.

Or it could be the fact that Scarlet Witch is the reason mutants almost went extinct...

...and she a got a free pass for it b/c she wasn't in her right mind. Yet the same group who gave her that pass wants to hunt down Cyclops for killing when he wasn't in his right mind. Yet you call the X-Men hyprocrites.

Please if you're going to debate (even on the internet), don't leave out half the facts to make a point.

Ugh, I can't stand crossover story myself. For example, if I want to read Wolverine story, then it should be about Wolverine story only (guests are welcomed). I just hate the fact that whenever I read Wolverine story and, the next issue, all I'm seeing is he is in the middle of battle with 100 of other heroes that left me scratching my head, "What the hell is going on?" *sigh* Oh well. Usually, when it comes to a lot of crossover events, I just wait for the hardcover collection to save confusion, time and money.

or maybe because the scarlet witch made her own people into an endangered species...thats probably the more logical reason not just because she is an Avenger...even thought the main fact that she is still an Avenger after committing Genocide is still something i cant figure out.

I don't disagree with you with regards Logan, but I chalk that down to bad writing.

Marvel needs to figure out what they want Wolverine to be ... and stick with it. The only real consistency the character has seen was at Claremont's hands well over a decade ago. Not surprisingly, that was the only time he wasn't interpreted by a dozen different writers and their mothers and all in as many titles.

Wolverine should, first and foremost, remain an honorable warrior - a conflicted man fighting back his bestial nature (due, in part, to his mutation and his troubled past) whilst living the code of bushido to the best he knows how. That struggle should remain at the core of the character IMHO - along with the violence seething just below the surface. But his struggle, his code, should remain sacrosanct. Should he fail to do so from time to time? Hell yes. But the story and situation should warrant it and it should mean something. All too often, his rationale behind "killing" is too loosely handled. Far too irrational - even bordering on twisted. I daresay the Claremont Wolverine would have a serious bone to pick with today's Logan half the time.

As stands, Wolverine is all over the damn place - agreed. And we, the fan base, scarcely know whether he's coming or going half the time. Just my two cents on the matter.

/rant.

Agreed 100%. Cyclop's and Cable's teams are the only two I can stand any more because the rest of the X-men have become the Avengers' boot lickers thanks to Wolverine. My favorite scene in AvX is all the mutants attacking Wolverine and calling him a traitor to mutants, because he's really become a tool of the Avengers for no other reason than the writers wanting to put him on twenty teams. I mean they had an issue of Age of Ultron that they solicited as "Wolverine vs Wolverine". How much more do we need to see of that knuckle dragger?

Aye...I am so tired of Wolverine now, his varnish has obviously faded. He just doesn't have the appeal anymore since he has caught the "Spider-man" (Parker version) syndrome (when the power that be decided to place Spidey in almost every story arc just because this would boost sales of a book).

@theblackhood: too true. Wolverine's boring now. My favourite scene in any X-men book has to be in Uncanny X-men #3 or 4, where Cylops just tells the Avengers to go to hell =D. BADASS! Wolverine has no right to call anyone a murder or killer, or anything for that matter... he's too infected with bullshit, up to the point where his words mean nothing anymore...mwahahahaha XD

I think it's really interesting that Cyclops has become the opposite of what Xavier taught him to be. And All this time traveling might get a bit confusing, but that's why I like it :) If anyone can handle this story its Brian Michael Bendis. X-Men will always be my favorite comics to read. But with Uncanny Avengers I've started to read more Avengers titles and I've been pleasantly surprised. I always thought the X-Men felt a little confined from the rest of the Marvel Universe. I think it's nice to them mingling with the Avengers as it gives me a good excuse to check out some Avengers titles. X-Men for Life!

You're a Cyclops fanboy, just look at your avatar! Do you like your own puerile logic now? I agree that Wolverine has done some questionable things, but saying that Cyclops hasn't is just being willfully ignorant. Scarlet Witch lost her sanity during House of M, so I don't blame her for her actions, just like I don't blame Cyclops for his actions while the influence of the Phoenix Force. Finally, a word of advice, just because someone doesn't agree with you, you don't go on a rant calling them a fanboy and an idiot. Caprende?

That I can totally agree with. The reason I still like Cyclops' and Cable's teams is that they still have the renegade feel that the book did back when Claremont was writing it.

Cyclops has become completely different from what he was a while ago. I see no reason to like Cyclop's team because of that.

I Just really appreciate his character growth, and how he's evolved into something more. Unlike Wolvey who's just the same killer with no real direction in his character (Marvel don't know what to do with him). Your earlier posts were blatantly blaming Cyke while disregarding the Scarlett Witch's wrong doing during the House of M. BOTH were under influence of some external force...

As to your fanboyism over Wolvey, i don't care, to each their own. But your arguments on how wolverine does what he does because that's what he was meant to do (which is killing) and Rogue's attempts at hurting Wanda just because she's an Avenger (REALLY??) is purely out of ignorance...

You say I have fanboyism for Wolverine, yet you have a clear bias against him. If you actually read great Wolverine stories, you would actually know that Wolverine is a lot more than just a "killer with no direction". I'm not a fanboy, and quite frankly, you're the ignorant fool who judges people so capriciously here, not me.

@wolverine08: Dude, I'll be honest. I have not read a Wolverine only story (read things that ALWAYS have him), so i've been judging him based on his appearances in team books or a more than one character book, and even from that, he's boring. So if you have any recommendations, by all means go for gold and tell me any good wolverine stories i can read.

@baberaham_lincoln:

Oh ok. Check out these stories, Wolverine: Origin, Wolverine by Chris Claremont (probably Wolverine's best story), Weapon X by Barry Windsor Smith, Wolverine: Enemy of State, Old Man Logan, Coyote Crossing, Adamantium Men, Logan, and Law of the Jungle.

I listed a lot of stories here, but out of all the ones I mentioned, I'd recommend you start with Wolverine: Origin by Paul Jenkins, Wolverine by Chris Claremont, and Weapon X by Barry Windsor Smith. These three stories will really help you understand what Wolverine is all about.

Also, sorry that I insulted you. I didn't mean any disrespect, and I was only voicing my dislike with the fact that it seems most X writers nowadays have all the X-Men do stupid, illogical, and out of character things just to justify drama, drama, and more drama. It feels like cheap storytelling to me.
