Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven | Comics

Storm assembled an all-new, extraordinary team of X-Men where she wants Old Man Logan and young Jean Grey to join.

When Thanos came to Earth last time, he came looking for his illegitimate son and had a clash with Black Bolt, the King of Inhumans. The latter detonated a Terrigen Bomb that not only destroyed New Attilan but also left Terrigen Mist in the atmosphere. However, it drastically increased their number while also severely affecting the lives of mutants.

Following this event, X-Men leader Cyclops have gone totally nuts and tried to start a mutant "Revolution" for dominance with a few of his radical followers who had the same belief. This irrational act eventually went horribly wrong for everyone and years of working to improve their public image by Professor X is completely ruined within moments.

Now, veteran X-Men member Storm finds herself with a burden on her shoulder to save her own race without the guidance of her mentor and former leader, Professor Charles Xavier. With the worldwide spread of Terrigenesis, humans and mutants are both dying from its exposure that causes what they are calling “M-Pox” or "X-Pox" these days.

As a result, the age old fear of mutants among humans has re-emerged once again. Meanwhile, a time-displaced Jean Grey from Earth-TRN240 was trying to find a plain and simple life on Earth-616 reality, gets approached by Storm to join their team, which she declined given her history of ending up dying every time as Marvel Girl no matter what.

When Icaman tries to talk to Jean to change her mind and failed, Ororo offered her to take a look into her head using the latter's psychic powers. She realizes that the outbreak of M-Pox caused by Terrigen Mist is not only killing their kind but also sterilizing them from ever to grow in numbers again and it can mean the end of the mutant race.

Mutant sorceress Illyana Rasputin aka Magik took it upon herself to scout throughout the whole world seeking for any mutant refugees in dire situation to save them from angry human mobs triggered by current mutant hysteria and brings them all back to X-Haven, the current headquarters of X-Men situated in magical dimension of Limbo.

Illyana goes to New Delhi, India, to save a family and their young mutant girl affected by Terrigen Mist from a tough crowd. She eventually rescued the family before taking a hit and brought them back to Jean Grey School For Higher Learning for safety.

Magik then heads straight to Lake Baikal, Russia, looking for her elder brother and former X-Man member Colossus to recruit him back to their fold during this crisis while their old pal Nightcrawler was being chased by a newly reformed group of Marauders.

Storm and Iceman were astounded to discover Old Man Logan is walking among them when he mistakenly attacked Cerebra, recently restructured within a Sentinel body by thinking it as an enemy. The old friends catch up quick about their current state of affairs before the young Jean finally meets with Logan to convince and bring him back to action.

Colossus and Magik investigate the disappearance of Nightcrawler only to run into the new team of Marauders and then attacked by someone Sinister. As soon as Illyana Rasputin fell, the magical defenses that she placed to defend X-Haven from Demons of Limbo attacking the sanctuary, collapses and the X-Men got a huge mess on their hand to clean.

Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven

The trail of mega crossovers and Universe shattering events like "Schism", Avengers Vs. X-Men and Infinity led to current status-quo of mutantkind in Marvel Universe. The death of Cyclops in Battleworld fighting God Emperor Doom during Secret Wars made it worse as the team is now scattered and disoriented without a leader to follow.

Comic-book writer Jeff Lemire (Thanos – Thanos Returns, Thanos – The God Quarry) and artist Humberto Ramos (Age of Apocalypse, Amazing Spider-Man) has teamed up to draw a new line for the beginning of a brand-new starting point with the story “X-Haven”, collecting issue #01-05 from the newly launched ongoing series.

Ultimate War | Comics

After battling Magneto (Tomorrow People) and his deadly Sentinel fleet from Savage Land to save New York as well as The President of United States of America, Professor Charles Xavier had brainwashed him and declared him dead upon sending him far away. However, this action was not able to please the authority and did not seem convincing enough.

Actually Professor Xavier was planning to reform his old friend under his own care. This news is mistakenly leaked out by X-Men’s Beast to his virtual girlfriend over internet. While chatting with his unknown virtual girlfriend, he disclosed this piece of information, which caused the Brotherhood of Mutants to capture him as they were the ones posing as his cyber girlfriend to dig out their spiritual leader, Magneto.

Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. is approached by US government, when Magneto starts re-appearing. He blew up eight-hundred people by destroying Brooklyn Bridge in a sudden terrorist attack with a reformed Brotherhood of Mutants at his side. So, along with The Ultimates, Fury successfully tracks down X-Men’s whereabouts but found it empty.

This however led Fury to believe that the X-Men have finally joined the very cause of Brotherhood of Mutants to fight against humankind. Meanwhile, Magneto learns of a plan by Xavier, who intends to track him down. But this plan backfired when The Ultimates and X-Men members encounter each other for quest of self-styled mutant master of magnetism. It's a battle of might and pride to prove who among them are the best.

Fatal Attractions | Comics

Fabian Cortez, the new leader of The Acolytes, attacks on the headquarters of “Project: Wideawake”, a recently developed sentinel program funded by the government at Camp Hayden.

Meanwhile, Exodus shows up to Cable's X-Force team to offer them all sanctuary from a mysterious greater power. Exodus in fact came to offer them shelter to Avalon, which was Cable's former headquarter Graymalkin in the past and the mysterious person with greater power is none other than a previously thought-dead Magneto himself, who has taken over the base and upgraded it with Shi'ar technology. Before teleporting with X-Force from Avalon, Cable nearly escapes death from the hands of the mutant master of magnetism.

Along with his team of Acolytes, Magneto came to meet the X-Men at Westchester during the funeral for Colossus' sister Illyana Rasputin, who died of the Legacy Virus that has crippled the entire mutant community for some time. After a brief fight between the X-Men and the Acolytes, Colossus switched his alliance with Magneto as he has lost his faith in the ways of Xavier and the X-Men.

Professor Xavier led the team of Jean Grey, Gambit, Quicksilver, Rogue and Wolverine to Avalon after Magneto unleashes an electromagnetic pulse causing havoc to Earth's entire electrical system, as an answer to "Magneto Protocols" by UN. After getting stabbed by Wolverine in battle, an enraged Magneto forcibly tore out the Adamantium out of Wolverine's body that led him to a near death experience as he was unable to heal himself from major injuries.

This sudden act of violence made Professor X snap and he mind-wipes Magneto in retaliation, leaving him into a vegetative state on Avalon. The X-Men took Wolverine back to their base for treatment as he was being unable to regenerate himself and Colossus left behind to look after Magneto.
