This August, comics superstar and Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim (Amazing Spider-Man, Wolverine) takes Marvelís mutants into space for an explosive new mission for a brand-new 4-issue story arc kicking off in X-MEN #18!

High above the Earth in the floating space station known as The Peak, extraterrestrial threats are monitored by S.W.O.R.D. Ė the planetís alien counterterrorism and intelligence agency. From the cold reaches of space, a familiar face returns. The ferocious ShiíAr warrior Deathbird has landed on their doorstep, gravely wounded and inches from death. Unable to identify the who or what that caused her life threatening injuries, the X-Men are called in to investigate!

Speaking with Paul Montgomery at, Guggenheim shared where the idea for his upcoming arc originated: ďThe idea really came from the fact Iíd been jonesing for an X-Men in space story as a reader. Iíd been re-reading the Brood Saga and it reminded me how much I love that concept of the X-Men in outer space. Itís a milieu that suits them really well.Ē

What horrible dangers await Rachel Grey, Storm, Jubilee, Psylocke and Monet in the cold, lifeless vacuum of space? And are they equipped to handle it? Donít miss the start of an epic sci-fi horror tale as Guggenheim takes the reins this August in X-MEN #18!
