A Death In The Family! X-MEN: THE EXTERMINATED #1


Recommended Posts

Cable has fallen, and the events of Extermination have left a hole in the X-Men family. What comes next??

In the wake of Cable’s death, his adopted daughter Hope Summers is attempting to deal with her loss – but a dark and terrifying path beckons her, and the X-Men’s own Jean Grey may be her only hope for survival!

This December, CABLE creative team Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler re-team for a special one-shot to say good-bye to the time-traveling, fan-favorite mutant – featuring covers by Shaw and a special back-up story that celebrates the life of Nathan Summers, from legendary X-Men series writer Chris Claremont!

“This issue is our chance to say a proper farewell to Cable, to honor his legacy, and to really see the immense impact the time travelling mutant had on those closest to him,” said Nadler. “Most importantly, it's about how the Summers family copes with grief, and the difficulty of forging ahead. The issue is packed with fan favorite X-Men from all different eras, and we're super excited to be bringing them together, despite the somber occasion.”

Don’t miss the X-Men story everyone will be talking about – X-MEN: THE EXTERMINATED #1 arrives in comic shops this December!

What?! Someone actually DIED in an X-Men book subtitled "the exterminated"? That's unheard of. Run out right now and reserve your copy of this HISTORIC event.

Hate to be snarky but these crossover/crisis/death/return tropes have been DONE to DEATH....seriously, please just stop it. Theyre just gonna bring the guy back eventually, or reboot the universe again, or have some other world-shaking crisis that will restore this and any other character they kill off. Wish Marvel would impose a 10yr moratorium on these kinds of arcs. in the meantime work on some fresh, original stories that actually fit the time frame you've already established. And a few stand- alone issues wouldn't hurt.

several times. he is getting up there with his stepmom in terms of deaths and rebirths

I can just see the cheesy day-time cable commercial:

"Have you died in a superhero civil war, alien invasion, glitch in the Matrix, or cosmic event? Have you been denied your death benefit simply because you're still breathing? Contact the law offices of Matt Murdock and we'll help you get your death benefit and any other settlements you may have coming. Call the Law Offices of Matt Murdock... . you were dead yesterday, you have enough to worry about."
