Hickman Debunks At Least Two Of Your House of X/Powers of X Theories

Writer Jonathan Hickman has debunked two popular fan theories concerning his upcoming X-Men miniseries, House of X and Powers of X.

With promotional and preview art displaying X-Men from different eras in the franchise's history, theories revolved around Hickman, Pepe Larraz and R.B. Silva's dual miniseries utilizing either an alternate universe or time travel, both popular staples of the X-Men. However, Hickman confirmed to CBR in an exclusive interview that neither House of X or Powers of X involves the tropes.

When asked about Marvel's first promo art by Mark Brooks, Hickman said, "I will tell you that 'we' are not telling an Alt-Universe story," which should let readers and fans know his tale will take place firmly in the Marvel Prime Universe.

The topic then went to the cover of Larraz's House of X #1, which features Charles Xavier, Jean Grey (in her old school Marvel Girl costume), Cyclops, Magneto and Wolverine. Again, Hickman debunked any and all time travel theories.

"I'm not telling a story that deals with time travel," he added.

With those two theories put to rest, we're now left to wonder exactly what Hickman has in store for the X-Men. We've seen familiar X-Men alongside some of their classic villains, new takes on characters and more. Thankfully, we're only a few months away from Hickman beginning what will surely become another classic Marvel run with the X-Men.

House of X #1 and Powers of X #1 will go on sale in July from Marvel Comics.
