Born with genetic mutations that give them abilities beyond those of normal humans, mutants are the next stage in evolution. As such, they are feared and hated by humanity. But a group of mutants known as the X-Men fight for peaceful coexistence between mutants and humankind.
This fight seemed lost when the Scarlet Witch depowered 99% of mutants, leaving X-Men leader Cyclops and his species on the brink of extinction. But when the Phoenix, a cosmic force of both destruction and creation, returned to Earth, Cyclops saw it as sign of hope for the future of the mutants. In the end, Cyclops, possessed and corrupted by the Phoenix Force, struck down Professor Xavier and it took the combined might of the Avengers and X-Men to defeat him. Just when all seemed lost, the power of the Phoenix Force was dispersed, sparking the rebirth of mutantkind.
As the rest of the X-Men settle back into life at the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, Cyclops finds himself a fugitive and outcast with few allies.
It’s a blast from the past as the original five students of Professor X – Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel and Beast – are plucked from the past and brought to the present. But what they find, the state that their future selves are in and the state of Xavier’s dream, is far from the future they dreamed of. And how will the X-Men of the present deal with their past coming crashing forward?
