For months, Jonathan Hickman and R.B. Silva's upcoming Powers of X has been touted as the series that would change mutantkind forever.
Now, as the release date for Issue #1 draws closer, more is being released about the project -- including a brand new cover by Silva for the final issue, as well as a synopsis that paints a vague picture of mutantkind's decimation.
Currently, little is known about Powers of X or its adjacent title, House of X, but several big shakeups have been teased. Silva's cover for Issue #6 shows the bodies of several key X-Men like Cyclops, Jean Grey, Colossus, Magik, Wolverine and Nightcrawler, all seemingly dead. Also, in the pile of fallen mutants, several key X-villains like Mystique, Sabretooth and Apocalypse lie dormant. All the while, a very-much-alive mutant (who bares a striking resemblance to Jubilee) walks through the aftermath of the carnage with a solemn expression.
