Next week, the Age of X-Man kicks off in the aptly titled Age of X-Man Alpha special from Marvel Comics. In Uncanny X-Men #10, Nate Grey, the titular X-Man, vanished himself and all of the X-Men to an alternate universe, a utopia where mutants are beloved instead of hated and feared. It’s kind of a metaphor for Disney buying Fox and Marvel suddenly realizing it can promote the X-Men again, if you think about it.
In any case, we get a glimpse of what utopia looks like for X-Man in this preview of the comic, and it looks an awful lot like 1950s America, complete with full service gas stations.
Pining for a bygone era and forcing everyone else to relive it? X-Man really is just the ultimate comic book fan, isn’t he?
Age of X-Man Alpha hits stores next Wednesday.
