X-Men Come from the Future in X-Men: Battle of the Atom
Even though we already have one team of time displaced X-Men, Marvel thought we needed another one. So, in an upcoming crossover event called Battle of the Atom, we’ll be getting another team of mutants. But these ones are from the future.
The story will be about an X-Men team from the future coming to the present to convince the X-Men team from the past who came to the present to go back to the past. It will be a 10 issue event, starting this fall in Battle of the Atom #1 and spanning two months of the regular issues of almost every X-Men series. The event will be written by all the current X-Men writers: Brian Michael Bendis, Brian Wood, and Jason Aaron.
Below are some sketches of the future team done by Arthur Adams (in this week’s podcast I call one of the characters Arthur Adams because the signature is in the place a name should go). Battle for the Atom begins this September.
