The X-Men have once again risen to become arguably Marvel Comics' biggest franchise in comic books. Their renewed popularity comes, of course, due to the revitalization of the line with Jonathan Hickman's 'Dawn of X' revamp - which has now segued to the next era, 'Reign of X.'

But that triumphant title is at odds with two event series which burns the mutant candle at both ends. In The Trial of Magneto, the master of magnetism is being charged with the murder of Wanda Maximoff, AKA the Scarlet Witch, AKA the woman who once believed she was Magneto's daughter.

Meanwhile, the skull-bedazzled Mystique is at her wits end after being turned down once again in having the mutant leaders resurrect her beloved wife Destiny. That will come to bear in Inferno, written by 'head of X' writer Jonathan Hickman.

This all wraps up in December, which is working to be the finale of this era, as lead X-Men writer Jonathan Hickman is leaving the franchise - just after Gerry Duggan took over writing the main X-Men book.

And outside of just that, Marvel has also begun a multi-pronged effort to have classic X-Men creators return and revisit their most famous storylines - Chris Claremont writing new tie-in stories to both 'Days of Future Past' and his Wolverine limited series, and the X-Men Legends title is following up the return of the Simonsons and Peter David with that of Wolverine's Larry Hama.

And that's not to mention the numerous new X-Men collections coming out at almost a weekly clip, putting recent arcs all in one place and, in some cases, bringing back in print storylines that haven't been available for years.
