If a year is a long time, how about twenty-five years? In today’s Wolverine And The X-Men, we flip forward that length in the life of Logan. A few spoilers… but these seem to be intentional ones.

He still seems to be headmaster at the Jean Grey School. But lots and lots have changed. We also get a peek into what may be coming up in X-Men continuity…

Hang on, not so fast, let me take notes, a Hellfire Academy siege, Azazel is back and this time he’s got pirates, The Black Order, Mondo, secret plans from Sabretooth, a new Brotherhood… of evil mutants? An Apocalypse crusade and… what is Jean dying again?

So who else is in this twenty-five year future? IMG_0031

Carmen Drake… is that a phasing Iceman? Warren’s got a kid, so has Quentin, we have a Charlene Xavier, a Rose Logan, a Summer Grey… anything else?

A new Thunderbird and Phoenix, Captain China rather than Captain America, Juggernaut’s Cyttorak lot get a church, Shark-Girl is now Shark_Woman and Eye Boy is all grown up.

And we may also see effects of Age Of Ultron on the continuity. Firstly, Wolverine now has a history for time travel problems…

And he’s looking a lot older than his twenty-five years via a healing factor may suggest. So… what happened to his healing factor? Something during his time travel in Age Of Ultron that made him… killable?

Talking of which we get to see a few more changes to the timeline in Age Of Ultron, also out today. And exactly what made Tony Stark the man he is today.
