After the shocking events of the last issue, the Uncanny X-Men are no longer the same as they head into all new, all different storyline! In Uncanny X-Men #487, one of their greatest members returns for a brand new story arc—and her name is Storm! Fresh off her appearances in Fantastic Four and Black Panther, the mutant master of the weather rejoins her old teammates to investigate a rash of murders in the Morlock tunnels. Who would kill these innocent mutants? And how does this tie into the big X-Men event coming this fall? Writer Ed Brubaker and artist Salvador Larroca know, as they kick off the new “The Extremists” storyline with a bang you won’t want to miss!
And don’t miss the hardcover collection of Ed Brubaker’s first year on Uncanny X-Men, along with Young Gun artist Billy Tan, coming this July in the form of the Uncanny X-Men: Rise & Fall Of The Shi’ar Empire HC, collecting Uncanny X-Men #475-#486 in one must-have volume that reveals just how the team has been changed forever!
The end is near…but is it for the Morlocks, the X-Men, or both? Find out this June in Uncanny X-Men #487!

Hulk has returned to Earth for “World War Hulk” and now he must deal with his best friend Rick Jones—but where does Rick stand? Is he with the Hulk or has he joined with those who oppose the Green Goliath? These answers and more come in the all new Incredible Hulk #108, which will feature a different story than solicited, allowing for the previous story to now appear in Incredible Hulk #109. No one in the universe knows Hulk better than Rick Jones, who’s stood by the savage beast through the good and the bad, no one except…Miek The Unhived? As Hulk’s oldest friend on Earth meets with Hulk’s first ally on the alien planet Sakaar, fans will get a look into the mind of the one man to not only fight alongside Hulk, but to also suffer with him—Rick Jones!
Written by Greg Pak, the man behind the best selling Planet Hulk, and featuring pencils by fan favorite Leonard Kirk, fresh off Agents Of ATLAS, this clash of worldviews will leave Rick and Miek very different people…if either friend of the Hulk survives! And how does this affect the Hulk? You’ll have to tune into Incredible Hulk #108 to find out!
