"X - MEN: BATTLE OF THE ATOM" im September / Oktober: Checklist + Info

"Battle of the Atom" ist der Titel des 10 - teiligen Comic Book - Crossover "Event" welches Disney's  MARVEL COMICS Imprint im September und Oktober in den Comic-Fachhandel ausliefert.

Mit diesem Mehrteiler feiert man bei Marvel (nochmals) den 50. Geburtstag der originalen "X-Men" - Heftchen Serie; lt. Marvel- Pressetext der “first major X-Men crossover event in over three years”  .

Wem also  "Avengers vs X-Men"  (und "A VS X") als Geburtstags-Feier-Event-Serie nicht genug waren sollte jetzt auch bei "Battle Of The Atom" zugreifen... Zu den Kreativen hinter diesem Event gehören unter anderem Brian Michael Bendis ("Age Of Ultron") sowie  Jason Aaron, Brian Wood, Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo, David Lopez und Giuseppe Camuncoli.

Der Storybogen zieht sich hierbei zwei Monate lang durch vier der diversen "X-Men"- related Heft-Serien;  zwei "Battle Of The Atom"  Sonderhefte bilden die sogenannten "Bookends" (also quasi Prolog und Epilog der Geschichte).

Auszüge aus  dem offiziellen PR- Text von Marvel  (in dem auch der Plot der Story erläutert wird) : 

".... an event so exhilarating, and so groundbreaking that fans will be talking about this for years to come! 

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! “If All-New X-Men #1 was the shot heard round the world, X-Men Battle Of The Atom is Valley Forge,” explained Nick Lowe, Senior Editor, Marvel Entertainment. “And there’s no group of creators I’d rather go to war with than Brian [Bendis], Jason [Aaron] and Brian [Wood]. And that doesn’t even mention the murderer’s row of artists.” 

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 it’s 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. 

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

This fall, all will be revealed in "X-Men: Battle of the Atom".
