The shocking conclusion of the Krakoan era! Mutantkind has never had a greater fall, from the highs of Krakoa - their own glorious nation, a place where they were safe and happy - to the lowest of lows. Now, they face two of the greatest threats to ever target them at the same time. Orchis has left them outlawed and hunted, with most of their kind missing or dead - and now one of their greatest leaders, Cyclops, is on trial and facing the death penalty. Meanwhile, a secret adversary has risen to power outside of reality, and as hopeless as the fight to save their species might seem, it's nothing compared to the fight to save the entirety of reality. Ready or not, the time has come to make their final stand against the forces that have struck them low - across every corner of the globe and all of time itself! The threats that began with the very inception of the nation of Krakoa finally come to fruition to wipe out all life and all freedom. All that stands against them is the X-Men. What can they do? They're the X-Men. They'll find a way, and the future of mutantkind will be forever changed! Collecting FALL OF THE HOUSE OF X #1-5, RISE OF THE POWERS OF X #1-5 and material from X-MEN (2021) #35.
Gerry Duggan has become one of Marvel’s most influential writers, having first made an impression at the House of Ideas with a lengthy and always surprising Deadpool run alongside his frequent writing partner, Brian Posehn. Among Duggan’s solo credits are Nova, Hulk and multiple tie-ins to the Secret Wars event. He added Deadpool to the revamped roster of Uncanny Avengers and brought his unique blend of action and humor to All-New Guardians of the Galaxy, leading up to the cosmic event series Infinity Wars. Marauders and Cable established him as a vital part of the storytelling team for the Dawn of X era, a role he has cemented further by launching the blockbuster new X-Men title. Duggan’s earlier collaboration with artist Phil Noto — The Infinite Horizon, a reimagining of Homer’s The Odyssey in a dystopian future — earned an Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series.

An award-winning critic and journalist, Kieron Gillen wrote for organizations such as PC Gamer, The Guardian, Rock, Paper, Shotgun and WIRED before turning his attention to comics. His previous credits include the critically lauded Phonogram with frequent creative partner Jamie McKelvie, as well as Thor, S.W.O.R.D. and Generation Hope. Gillen relaunched two long-standing Marvel series in Uncanny X-Men and Journey into Mystery before again teaming with McKelvie for an acclaimed take on Young Avengers. Gillen turned his attention to Iron Man for Marvel NOW! and proved the perfect scribe to put carefully chosen words into the mouth of a legendary Star Wars villain in Darth Vader. Gillen introduced Doctor Aphra into the galaxy far, far away in those pages, and continues her adventures in her own series.

R.B. Silva is a Brazilian artist who built his reputation at DC Comics on titles including Superboy, Red Hood and the Outlaws, World’s Finest and Action Comics. For Marvel, he has worked on War Machine, Spider-Man and the X-Men, Nova and the James Patterson adaptation Max Ride: Ultimate Flight. Silva’s Powers of X collaboration with writer Jonathan Hickman established him as a comics superstar, a status confirmed by his work on Fantastic Four.
