X-Men Gold – Back To The Basics | Comics

Long before Professor Xavier started training his mutant students, the X-Men were always feared by humans unlike the heroes of Avengers or Fantastic Four. With their recent war with The Inhumans, that phobia has returned again. Forming a new team with Colossus, Nightcrawler, Old Man Logan, Prestige and Storm, Kitty Pryde leads the X-Men as their current leader to stop an attack from Terrax the Tamer.

It took all of their effort to defeat Terrax and quite a lot of property damage. Upon defeating him with solid team-work, Kitty talks to the civilians about earning their trust back again. Back at home, Ororo and Kurt argue about whether the situation has improved or not, while Rachel practices in Danger Room alongside Armor and Rockslide. Piotr was asking Katya about having dinner together but is suddenly interrupted when the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants attacks the city.

At United Nations building the X-Men confronts Brotherhood members Avalanche, Cleevus, Magma, Masque and Pyro. Logan is badly burnt by Magma and quickly taken away by Kurt to safety, where they stumbled onto Mesmero. He sent Kurt away and took Logan to his secret hideout. The rest of the team were defeated by the remaining X-Men members but the Brotherhood members fled to avoid arrest.

Director Lydia Nance of Heritage Initiative was already commenting about a Human/Mutant race war on public media and then the mayor of New York gets kidnapped by the Brotherhood. There is a large hidden agenda at play that the X-Men later take care of. Meanwhile, a mercenary is hunting down mutants in New York city with a personal vendetta.

Elsewhere, the mutant thief Gambit took a job to steal a secret nanotech from a secret lab for Olivia Trask that eventually became a self-aware Sentinel by merging itself with computer systems. The Sentinel quickly evolves and overpowers Gambit. Then it upgraded itself and engaged all of the heroes to create a city-wide havoc.

X-Men Gold – Back To The Basics

Following the events of "Death of X" and "Inhumans Vs. X-Men", the world is starting to hate and fear mutants again like all those years ago. To keep Xavier's dream alive, Kitty Pryde forms the X-Men Gold team to lead the mutant heroes towards modern threats. Collecting issues #01-06 from the second ongoing volume of X-Men Gold monthly series from Marvel Comics, the storyline is conceived by writer Marc Guggenheim (Blade – Sins of the Father, Blade – Undead Again), who was assisted by artists Ardian Syaf (Batman & Superman – Siege, Flashpoint – Emperor Aquaman) and R. B. Silva (Nova – After Burn, Spider-Man & The X-Men).
