Solicit Synopsis

It’s here…the final chapter of Marvel’s best-selling prestige series X-MEN: GRAND DESIGN! Out with the old and in with the blue and gold as the X-Men enter the radical ’90s! Revisit innumerous classic storylines like the return of Jean Grey! The trial of Magneto! X-Tinction Agenda!!! And many, many more! With appearances by Jubilee, Gambit and the Reavers! Brought to life by the multi-hyphenate master of graphic fiction himself, Ed Piskor!

Notes

  • Kitty's time-travel led to the prevention of Senator Stern's assassination, and in turn altered the Earth-TRN686 timeline shown from X-Men: Grand Design #1 to this issue.
    • Although it is not confirmed what all the changes to the timeline were, the Earth-TRN798 divergences that were confirmed in this issue include:
      • The prevention of the Sentinel-ruled future (Xavier mentioned to Cyclops that Future Kitty's consciousness disappeared as proof that the Days of Future Past future cataclysm was averted)
      • The capture of the Brotherhood and escape of Mystique (in the previous timeline, the Brotherhood had escaped with ease as the X-Men weren't there in X-Men: Grand Design - Second Genesis #2)
      • Cyclops responded to Lee Forrester's ad instead of Madelyne Pryor's (with a note to read Uncanny X-Men #143 next; also further confirmed by Daron Jensen and Jeph York's notes in the Additional Reading section of the issue)
