‘Destiny of X’ puts the fate of the X-Men in their own hands

Fate has come for Krakoa.

A chilling trailer for DESTINY OF X, which kicks off the Second Krakoan Age of X-Men, picks up in Paris, France in 1918 with a clandestine encounter between mutants Nathaniel Essex, AKA Mister Sinister, and Irene Adler, the woman who would become Destiny. As they enjoy a sunny day in the park, Irene leans in and whispers a secret that shakes Sinister to his core.

“With the DESTINY OF X at their fingertips, mutantkind can finally choose their own path – their own destiny,” the trailer promises as it advances to the present day Krakoa.

The upcoming X event picks up after the events of INFERNO and X LIVES OF WOLVERINE/X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE, covering titles such as IMMORTAL X-MEN, MARAUDERS, X-FORCE, KNIGHTS OF X, X-MEN, LEGION OF X, WOLVERINE, NEW MUTANTS and X-MEN RED. Designers such as Vita Ayala, Gerry Duggan, Al Ewing, Kieron Gillen, Tini Howard, Steve Orlando, Benjamin Percy, Simon Spurrier, Jan Bazaldua, Eleonora Carlini, Stefano Caselli, Robert Gill, Adam Kubert, Javier Pina, Bob Quinn, Rod Reis and Lucas Werneck will lend their talents to the Second Age of Krakoa as DESTINY OF X takes hold.

Naturally, DESTINY OF X will take readers back to Krakoa, a mutant nation-state that exists on the sentient and ever-changing island first introduced in GIANT-SIZE X-MEN (1975) #1. Now that the sinister machinations of Moira MacTaggert have been stopped and Destiny is rightfully restored, a new era dawns for all of Krakoa, even as old threats resurface. DESTINY OF X will pit our happy mutants against Meryln, Madelyne Pryor the Goblin Queen and… the Robot X-Men?! And what does Deadpool have to do with it?
