Marvel is teasing the next era of X-Men Comics

According to a new Marvel Comics teaser, the next era of X-Men comics begins in March 2022. Following the success of House X/Powers of X and Reign of X, the next initiative to arrive in the X-Men line is Destiny of X. While details of what Destiny of X will entail exactly, the teaser image keeps things simplified with a two-line quote from Irene Adler , also known as Mystique’s lover and precog known as Destiny. Considering what we know about Destiny’s current status in X-Men, Destiny of X may not be as festive as its predecessors.

“There’s no ‘The’ future. There’s no fate,” reads Irene Adler’s quote on the Destiny of X teaser image. Along with its release date of March 2022, Marvel’s other information is to “stay updated in the coming weeks for news about the next era of mutant cheeks …” The coming weeks would be in December, when Marvel’s 2022 calls will be officially released.

Things are starting to get hotter with the X-Men series of comics. Initially Lawsuit against Magneto appoints the Master of Magnetism as the main suspect in the murder of the scarlet witch at the conclusion of the Hellfire gala. Although Scarlet Witch was believed to be Magneto’s daughter, she has become a pariah in the mutant community after depowering mutants in The house of M. Magneto and Scarlet Witch were shown in father / daughter embrace at the Hellfire Gala, but then her body was discovered shortly after.

Next up is Hell, which marks the end of author Jonathan Hickman’s time as a showrunner for the X-Men. It will unpack all the loose ends House X/Powers of X and features Mystique working behind the backs of Professor X, Magneto and Moira MacTaggert to revive Destiny. With his back to the land of the living, Mystique quickly worked behind the scenes to secure Destiny a seat on the Quiet Council, the governing body of the mutant island nation of Krakoa.

It is unknown exactly how Hell will end, but we know Marvel is pausing its X-Men comics in early 2022 in favor of a Wolverine-centric event. X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine will chronicle Logan’s past and future, and will have a dramatic impact on the X-Men going forward.
