This year’s slew of What If? comics looks to the near past and presents a new take on some of the greatest stories to come through Marvel in the past several years. What If? Spider-Man: The Other, gave fans a new ending to stunning story that raised Peter Parker from the dead and forever changed him. The response from fans has been great for this year’s What If? event dealing and What If? Spider-Man: The Other has sold out at Diamond along with previously announced sellout of What If? Avengers Disassembled.
The next event to get the What If? treatment is X-Men: Deadly Genesis, where we ask: what if Vulcan and his team of X-Men had survived their attack against Krakoa? In What If? X-Men: Deadly Genesis, the X-Men, lead by Vulcan, not only survived their encounter with the living island, but succeeded in destroying it.
The vibrant leader Vulcan leads the X-Men into the future and into a celebrity-like status. However, when the remains of Krakoa are found drifting in space, a terrible secret that Xavier’s second team left behind threatens their newfound status in the spotlight.
If the original X-Men: Deadly Genesis left your mouth agape, see just how many surprises and secrets come to light when Marvel shows a different path for Vulcan and his team in What If? X-Men: Deadly Genesis.
Marvel does not plan on going back to press on What If? Spider-Man: The Other, but retailers are advised to check their orders on the other upcoming What If? one-shots, including What If? X-Men: Deadly Genesis.
