| Print |

uncanny_xmen_506_header.jpgIt's the merry mutants vs. Humanity NOW! in Uncanny X-Men #506 and we've got a 4-page preview, plus a look at some new second printing variants for Invincible Iron Man and War Machine.



The Uncanny X-Men Fight For Their Survival!


As the Humanity NOW! Coalition spreads its anti-mutant hate like wildfire, violence breaks out everywhere, leaving only one  group left to oppose them-the X-Men! The acclaimed creative team of Matt Fraction (Invincible Iron Man) and Terry Dodson present Uncanny X-Men #506 and the future of mutantkind doesn't look so bright! Only the X-Men's fringe science team (Beast, Angel and some new allies) can change things before it's too late! A HUGE discovery makes the chance of survival very small - it's a race against time like never before!


See what fans and critics are saying about Uncanny X-Men:


"Great writing and great art. I really hope this team stays together as long as possible." Ryan Y,


" Matt Fraction makes it work and makes it work wonderfully...Also for the second issue in a row Terry Dodson knocks it out of the park. His artwork is perfect for this book and the X-Men." Ryan Broussard,


"I know I'm excited about where this comic is headed." Timothy Callahan,


"Fraction's pages pop with his usual vitality." Jesse Schedeen,


"It's a great time to be an X-fan!" Steven Bari,


Don't miss the penultimate chapter of "Lovelorn," as the X-Men must wage their latest war for survival on multiple fronts-and this may be one they can't win! Find out in Uncanny X-Men #506!
