We’re back on schedule with Marvel’s Fall of X with the debut of Uncanny Spider-Man. How does the weird mash-up of X-Men ideas and Spider-Man ideas work? Pretty well, we think, particularly given Nightcrawler’s mix of humor and pathos.
Over in Uncanny Avengers #2, the mystery of Captain Krakoa’s identity deepens. Wolverine #37 sends the hero on a journey to Japan and beyond that only tangentially connects to Fall of X. Dark X-Men #2 turns Havok into a zombie and Archangel into a golden skull dude. And Alpha Flight #2 is arguably the most X-Men book of them all.
Before we get into any of that, though, we discuss the big news that the Krakoan Era of the X-Men will begin to end in January… As well as what that might mean for Marvel’s mutants going forward.
Plus, we discuss what’s next in the Fall of X reading order: Invincible Iron Man #10, Jean Grey #2, Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant #2, and Realm of X #2.
