C2E2: Marvel Reveals X-Men: Battle of the Atom

This is straight from IGN!

It’s been a while since there’s been a proper crossover in the X-Men Universe, but that’s all about to change as the many threads of Brian Bendis‘ X-Men run thus far collide.

Announced at Marvel‘s X-Men panel today, X-Men: Battle of the Atom will see what happens when it’s finally time for the original X-Men to go back to their own time — with the help of the future X-Men. That’s right, the present-day X-Men are going to get a visit from their future selves that have one mission: to send the original X-Men back where they belong and prevent a terrible future. I think at this point, perhaps the X-Men causing a horrible future is just going to happen no matter what they do.

X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1 Cover

The crossover is being handled by Bendis, Jason AaronBrian Wood, and will happen in these books:

  • X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1
  • Uncanny X-Men #12-13
  • All-New X-Men #16-17
  • Wolverine & The X-Men #36-37
  • X-Men # 5-6
  • X-Men: Battle of The Atom #2

The story begins in September and ends in October, so it’s going to be a very huge month of X-stories, to be sure. Issue #1 will be drawn by Frank Cho. Marvel promises that this story will pay off many of the threads that Bendis has been seeding since he began his run, and of course, set up a great many things to come. Marvel showed off some early designs of the X-Men from the future:
