Last year’s Hellfire Gala changed the entire Marvel Universe. This year, it promises to have huge repercussions once again, and who knows what it might be.
Last year Mars was terraformed, creating planet Arakko and revealing Storm as the Regent of the entire solar system. This year will be full of game changing developments, such as the reveal of the new X-Men lineup, direct ties to AXE: Judgment Day and more. It sets the stage for the future of mutantkind, but also much of the Marvel Universe. Written by current X-Men writer Gerry Duggan and featuring artwork by Kris Anka, Russell Dauterman, Matteo Lolli and C.F. Villa, X-Men: The Hellfire Gala #1 will also boast stunning covers by superstar artists Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Adam Hughes, Arthur Adams, Carlos Gómez, and Nick Dragotta.
But that’s not all, check out some teases from Marvel’s press release as well as the covers from the event!
