Marvel’s House of X comic book rewrites X-Men in a way you wouldn’t expect. Moving forward, all bets are off, not just for mutants, but the entire Marvel universe. The first issue of this six-part series hit store shelves and digital downloads today, and is a real page-turner that boldly takes chances with one of Marvel’s most beloved groups of characters. Most of those chances hit hard and paint a fascinating future that could go any which way. Much like Grant Morrison’s reinvention of the children of the Atom in New X-Men, writer Jonathan Hickman upends X-Men standards and takes them to, well, saying anything more would ruin the surprises.
