Popverse's top stories of the day


May is a busy month for Marvel, with Blood Hunt beginning — in both regular and polybagged "red band" editions, for more bloody violence. But that’s far from all to discover in the new round of solicitations from Marvel: Who thought that we’d get a new Godzilla omnibus, for one thing? And what’s Marv Wolfman doing back in Amazing Spider-Man?!?

It’s the beginning of the end for the Krakoan era in May’s Marvel solicitations, with three of the primary nodes of X-canon for this time period — Fall of the House of X, Rise of the Powers of X, and X-Men: Forever all coming to an end. But let’s not get too sad; there’s also a wedding special, finally allowing Mystique and Destiny to tie the knot after decades (during most of which, they weren’t even allowed to be officially in a relationship on-panel… but we all knew, really).

There’s also a lot of interesting collected editions to enjoy from the X-Books on the way — including a new collection of Grant Morrison’s first issues with the franchise. Wondering what’s coming up for Marvel’s mutants in May? Keep reading and find out.
