Synopsis for "Earth X, Chapter 6"

Uatu and X-51 review the history of Magneto, Professor X and the X-Men. Richards uses Lockjaw's antennae and travels to Xavier's school, which is in shambles since there is no longer a need for X-Men now that the entire world is full of mutants. There, he uses Cerebro to find the rest of the actual Inhumans left on the planet.

In Central Park, the New X-Men attack Scott Summers in an attempt to show him they already know how to fight. He easily defeats them and at the request of his friend, Captain America, begins their training as the official new X-Men.

In SoHo, Banner & Hulk, and Thor ask Clea, the current Sorceress Supreme to take them into the Realm of Death to find Mar-Vell. Since once you enter the Realm of Death, you lose your soul, the only one who can enter safely is the Hulk, because his soul lies in the body of Bruce Banner. Unfortunately Hulk is mute, and must carry a handwritten letter to Mar-Vell instead of speaking with him.

The Iron Avengers return to their lair and are getting sanitized, eerily speaking as though they are the people they were designed after, calling each other Hank and Jan. Tony Stark is in his operations room speaking with President Osborn. Vision protests working with Osborn, claiming that he is a monster and that his riches were made on the blood of innocents. Tony insists on giving him a second chance, saying that his freedom from legislation allows him to create more inventions to help people than he could without Osborn as a friend.

While training the New X-Men, Scott takes the name, "Mr. S", as an homage to Professor X.

Peter Parker confronts his daughter May, lecturing her once again about Power and Responsibility. She tells him she would have never let that burglar go in the first place, and will not allow her dad to be her own 'Uncle Ben'.

The Skull's forces march on, as Cap and Daredevil follow them to see what their plans are. Daredevil reveals that the only reason he's fighting alongside Cap is that he knows they'll lose.

Solicit Synopsis

  • Behold the formation of the all-new, all-different X-Men, while Captain America and Daredevil follow the Skull's growing forces to New York!


  • Pages 4-5: Panel 1 shows Cyclops and Marvel Girl, the uniforms they are wearing in this panel were first worn in X-Men #39 (awarded to the them by Professor Xavier after their defeat of Factor Three and the Mutant Master), behind them is Wolverine circa Giant-Size X-Men #1 (this is a bit of a continuity glitch as Cyclops had to change his visor in Giant-Size X-Men #1 and Wolverine did not meet Jean Grey or form the love triangle between the three until X-Men #98.) Panel 2 shows the building of the Sentinels giant robots originally created by Bolivar Trask to destroy mutants, the first series of Sentinels first clashed with the X-Men in X-Men #14. In the center of the page is a number of members of the X-Men and New Mutants teams circa the late 70's early 80's during Chris Claremonts run on both Uncanny X-Men & The New Mutants other than characters obscured by shadow appearing on this page (from left to right, back to front) are: Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner, Giant-Size X-Men #1) mutant teleporter, Wolverine (James Howlett, Incredible Hulk #181 joined the X-Men in Giant-Size X-Men #1), Colossus (Piotr Rasputin, Giant-Size X-Men #1), Phoenix (a cosmic entity posing as Jean Grey, first appearance X-Men #101), Thunderbird (John Proudstar, Giant-Size X-Men #1), Psyche (Danielle Moonstar, Marvel Graphic Novel #4), Sunspot (Robert DaCosta, Marvel Graphic Novel #4), Sunfire (Shiro Yoshida, X-Men #64 joined the X-Men in Giant-Size X-Men #1 but left after his first mission), Wolfsbane (Rahne Sinclar, Marvel Graphic Novel #4), Cannonball (Sam Gurthie, Marvel Graphic Novel #4, Storm (Ororo Munroe, Giant-Size X-Men #1), Banshee (Sean Cassidy, X-Men #28), Havok (Alex Summers, X-Men #54) and Cyclops (X-Men #1.)

Psyche, Cannonball, Wolfsbane, and Cannonball are all wearing their costumes circa New Mutants #1.
  • Page 7: Panel 1, Reed is walking through a Danger Room sequence, the Danger Room was a room in the X-Mansion that the X-Men used to hone their abilities it first appeared in X-Men #1. The sequence in this panel shows the Sentinels fighting Banshee, Cyclops, Wolverine (in his brown costume he began wearing circa X-Men #139), Nightcrawler and Colossus.
  • Page 8: Panel 2 Reed is pulling down the helmet to Xavier's Cerebro machine. Cerebro was a computer that aided Xavier in finding mutants. It first appeared in X-Men #7.
  • Page 13: Panel 1, The Realm of the Dead that Bruce Banner is asking Clea to give them passage is the afterlife of the Marvel universe it not to be confused with Hel, which Thor mentions in the same panel. Hel is a realm of the Asgardian realm of Asgard which houses the souls of their dead (except for heroes who's souls rest in the realm of Valhalla.)
  • Page 17: in the first panel Scott says "Your attention please. Class is now in session. Tardiness will be Punished" which is similar to the first words spoken by Professor Xavier in X-Men #1 to summon the original X-Men for the first time.
  • Page 18: Panel 4 being called professor by Charmer reminds him of Professor Xavier his former teacher. Scott takes up the moniker Mr. S at this point. Xavier himself went by the codename Professor X.
  • Page 19: Panel 3 "With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility" is the phrase often used by Peter's uncle Ben and used as the moral lesson as to why Peter became Spider-Man, it was first said however in the closing narrative of Amazing Fantasy #15 long before Uncle Ben was quoted as saying it. In other panels on this page Venom and Peter are arguing about letting a burglar go. This is in reference to Amazing Fantasy #15 again, in which Peter, just having became Spider-Man and was using his powers to seek fame refused to help a guard catch a burglar, this burglar eventually ended up shooting his Uncle Ben.
  • Page 21: The quote here is by C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) an Irish author and scholar most known for his work "The Chronicles of Narnia" This quote however is from "Till We Have Faces" his final novel (first published in 1956) which was his retelling of the story of Cupid and Psyche.
  • The Appendix to this chapter mentions the following characters: Iceman and Angel were both original members of the X-Men (See above); Magneto was of course the X-Men's first foe, the Savage Land mentioned in this paragraph refers to a pre-historic rain forest located on the South Pole, it first appeared in Marvel Mystery Comics #22, Toad was one of Magneto's first Brotherhood members who served as a mere lackey. Mentions of Magneto being a slave to the Toad is a bit of a continuity glitch in the Earth X story line, as in Universe X it is stated that the repolarization of the planet caused Magneto and Toad to switch roles, at this point in the series this hasn't happened yet. Banshee joined the X-Men in Giant-Sized X-Men #1, Black Tom Cassidy is his cousin, and evil mutant who first appeared in X-Men #99. Multiple Man first appeared in Giant-Size Fantastic Four #4, he was never officially a member of the X-Men but worked on Muir Island before joining X-Factor. Nightcrawler joined the X-Men in Giant-Sized X-Men #1. Gambit (Remy LeBeau) was a New Orleans thief who first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #266, Rogue (Anne Marie) first in Avengers Annual #10 and joined the X-Men in Uncanny X-Men #171 couldn't control her powers that caused her to absorb the minds and powers of other; Dazzler (Alison Blaire) mutant Disco singer with light powers first appeared in X-Men #130, she didn't actually join the X-Men until Uncanny X-Men #214. Longshot was created by Mojo as prime entertainment to the dimension of Spineless Ones, he had incredibly good luck, he first appeared in Longshot #1 but didn't join the X-Men until X-Men Annual #10. Kitty Pride (aka Shadowcat) was a mutant phaser who first appeared in X-Men #130 but didn't join the team until X-Men #139. Cable (Nathan Summers) was the son of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor (First seen in Uncanny X-Men #201) who was infected with a technorganic virus by Apocalypse and was taken to the future where he grew up, he eventually returned to the present as a mercenary in New Mutants #86. Nate Grey (Aka "X-Man") is from Earth-295 ("Age of Apocalypse") a divergent reality where Charles Xavier was killed as a young man and Magneto formed the X-Men, he was created by Mr. Sinister out of DNA taken from Cyclops and Jean Grey and was to become a weapon to stop Apocalypse, Nate escaped to Earth-616 in X-Men Omega #1, and never officially joined the X-Men but fought along side them many times. The mention of Nate becoming Stryfe is a reference to a clone of Cable made in the future, Stryfe first appeared in New Mutants #87. Madelyne Pryor was a clone created by Mr. Sinister to mate with Cyclops, she first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #168.
