There's a scene during BATTLE OF THE ATOM that I *think* was Bendis creating a hook for later. Maybe. Also, we literally do not see anything to support my theory.

The future Brotherhood, led by Xorn!Jean, wants to send the O5 X-Men back to their correct time. They can't. This is a major plot point in Battle of the Atom, as no one cares what the Original Five want, even though everyone is saying that HAVE to go back.
Not doing that again )

ALL-NEW X-MEN #10 had Hank McCoy say, "He's putting an army together to fight the humans and he's using Xavier's name to do it." He was talking about present-day Cyclops to time-shifted young Cyclops.

X-MEN: CHILDREN OF THE ATOM was a late 1999-early 2000 miniseries by Joe Casey and Steve Rude, a "take" on how Charles Xavier gathered the original X-Men together. Which was easy, since Scott, Hank and Bobby all went to the same high school.

And here's how those two things tie together. (With a reference to KINGDOM COME.)

Kind of militant, don't you think? )

UNCANNY ORIGINS #6 covers some of the origin of Henry McCoy, aka The Beast. A few of the pages would be great for Father's Day, which I've posted before.

I am indebted to CBR for providing an image suitable for putting above the cut in their coverage of the NYCC X-Men panel

It was announced a little while ago that X-23 would be joining the cast of "All New X-Men" (Which suggests she makes it out of Avengers Arena, unless this is a android or something), but the picture that was shown to announce this also included her in the arms of a silhouette.



Going where even Claremont dared not go... )

Despite being a tie in to an event comic, Avengers Academy's tie in to Fear Itself is honestly one of the best things to come out of both. I'll also be posting another honestly good thing to come out of Fear Itself, an issue of Secret Avengers written by Nick Spencer. Because it's taking place in Washington DC like the events here, and is just that awesome.

This arc serves as a culmination of a lot of what Academy was about and may just be the best arc in the entire series. Yeah, it's downhill after this. But it's one hell of a high note.

Get your hankerchiefs ready, this is gonna be one hell of a tearjerker.

It also continues the trend these posts have had of "Academy showing up Arena at its own game" as we see death handled maturely and with peak drama.
For those that managed to miss this event (lucky you), )
