Over the past couple years the X-Men comics have gone through major story lines and the team dismantled and reassembled in many forms. Since 2012 Marvel event Avengers vs. X-Men comic sales for this beloved franchise went on a decline.  Majority of fans believed that Marvel Studios wanted the series to do poorly and fans to forget about the X-Men so the Fox would give up rights to the movie franchise.  Although that was speculation the plan never worked since Fox was successful with Days of Future Past and Apocalypse.  Slowly over the past year Marvel Comics has righted the ship by bringing in favorites like Old Man Logan, X-23, Young Cyclops, and Kitty Pryde back into the main stream X-Men universe.  Marvel Comics has made 2017 the RessurXion of the X-Men universe.  With the team Marvel has assembled to steer these new series, lets hope that the X-Men comics can get back to its glory days of being one of the top pick-ups each month.

The RessurXion begins here! In the wake of Inhumans vs. X-Men, the Children of the Atom pick up the pieces and charge headlong into tomorrow!
