The Book 1 wiki last edited by comicguy2 on 09/13/13 10:09AM View full history

Sixteen million mutants dead - and that was just the beginning! In one bold stroke, writer Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Batman) propelled the X-Men into the 21st century, masterminding a challenging new direction for Marvel's mutant heroes that began with the destruction of Genosha and never let up.

Collects New X-Men #114-126, and Annual 2001.
