Uncanny X-Men writer Matthew Rosenberg is best-known for his penchant for murdering fan-favorite characters, an insatiable bloodlust that is likely to bring a gruesome end to any X-Men character you love for as long as Rosenberg continues to hold sway over the Marvel mutantverse. But in this preview of War of the Realms: Uncanny X-Men #1, Rosenberg brings two classic villains back into the fold…
That’s right, it’s Nanny and Orphan-Maker, the creations of the great Louise and Walt Simonson from back during their epic X-Factor run. And it seems that not very much has changed since the 1980s…
The preview also gives us a hint about when the X-Men have time to engage in a super-mega-crossover event tie-in: before Uncanny X-Men #16. Because, well…
And with Dani being called to participate in the War of the Realms, thanks to her connections to the Valkyries, she leaves her teammates in a bit of a bind…
Thankfully, since we’ve read Uncanny X-Men #16, we know that Dani must not arrive before the events of War of the Realms #2.
War of the Realms: Uncanny X-Men #1 hits stores Wednesday.

The War of the Realms has come to Midgard…and Westchester! Malekith’s forces are invading Earth, and the heroes of Earth are joining with the heroes of Asgard to fight them back! Who better to lead the X-Men into that war than their very own Valkyrie, Dani Moonstar?
