“Messiah Complex” is a comic book crossover about the X-Men which ran from October 2007 to January 2008, published by Marvel Comics. The story is the climax of events that began with “House of M“, which led to the decimation of mutants in the Marvel Universe and the first chapter of a three-part saga, which continued in Messiah War released in 2009 and culminates in The Second Coming, a crossover between all X-Men titles in 2010. I bring this to your attention right now because of the great story about the survival of the mutant race. If you haven’t picked up an X-Men title in a while now would be a great time the third part in the story has begun.
The climax of four years of X-Men stories is the X-Event of 2010! What started in HOUSE OF M with the Decimation of mutantkind and erupted with the first new mutant birth in MESSIAH COMPLEX finishes here. In the epic crossover SECOND COMING, Cyclops’ faith pays off when Cable returns to the present with Hope, the girl he believes to be the mutant messiah. But will she be the savior or destroyer of mutantkind? We may never know, as she is the target of an initiative for mutant eradication unlike anything the X-Men have ever expierenced. Many will be wounded. Several will die. Is Hope worth it?
Events are changing for the Mutants of the Marvel universe. They are numbered in the endangered species of humankind. What will be their future? Will they survive?
