Preview: X-Men: First to Last

The current X-Men and the original X-Men have to fight a common threat - but who are the Evolutionaries?

This First to Last arc could be pretty interesting, pitting the classic original-five X-Men against the same mysterious foe as the new-school X-Men, who are in a vastly different place than Xavier's original dream would have had them. 

Writer Christopher Yost has created new villains known as the Evolutionaries, who've arrived on Utopia and are planning to kill the X-Men, and both generations of mutants have to try and fight back.  Do they get to fight side by side, or are the stories taking place in two different times thanks to some chronal skullduggery from these new villains?  We'll have to read to find out, but here's hoping for some more Jean Grey/Emma Frost head-butting – not to mention young Cyclops vs. mature badass Cyclops.

 

Check out this preview art from the first two parts of the First to Last arc – X-Men: Giant-Size #1 and X-Men #12, from artists Paco Medina and Dalibor Talajic, and covers from Medina and Ed McGuinness.
