The X-Men, X-Factor, and the New Mutants fight a devastating war on three fronts in 1988’s Fall of the Mutants Omnibus.
Besides the lead-up to “Inferno”, the reprinted omnibus also contains all of the mutant-led installments in Marvel’s 1988 Annual crossover, “The Evolutionary War”, as well as appearances by the Brood, various stooges from Genosha, Apocalypse’s Celestial ship, and Infectia.
Plenty of issues to choose from this week for long-time fans, new fans, and people who want to start reading about their favorite heroes again, with a number of new starts.
The new story arc (like the rest of the ones in the flashback anthology series) will take place in-continuity, with issue #5 sandwiched between X-Factor #75 and #76 from 1992.
David’s second most prolific stint of this era was on Marvel’s X-Factor, where he delivered humor, excitement, and pathos every month, essentially elevating former C-List characters like The Multiple Man, Polaris, and Strong Guy to A-List status.
Not only are Louise and Walter Simonson returning to their memorable stint on X-Factor with X-Men Legends #3, but just in case you missed their initial run, the X-Factor: Angel of Death Epic Collection will help you fill in the blanks this April.
