In Uncanny X-Men #488, the Eisner Nominated Ed Brubaker and superstar artist Salvador Larroca bring you the second chapter of “The Extremists,” the newest pulse-pounding storyline that sets the stage for this fall’s massive X-Men event. The X-Men have returned from their harrowing journey into space, and with the team still reeling from the events of that battle, now would be the worst time for another crisis—so it’s fortunate that Storm has made her return to the X-men! The Wakandian Queen is recruited to help her former teammates investigate a series of unprovoked outbreaks of violence amongst the Morlocks, a situation made even worse by the tragic events of M-Day.

Plus…Magneto’s return? After he was caught in a violent explosion in the pages of New Avengers, the militant mutant rights leader was thought to be dead, but Professor X isn’t convinced. His search continues for his former friend in the pages of Uncanny X-Men #488.
