Marvel Reveals Covers for X-Men: Battle of the Atom

The 50th anniversary X-Men super-mega-crossover event will have covers, in case you were wondering.



Source: Press Release

Answering the questions of fans who wondered whether the various X-books tying into the X-franchise's 50th anniversary event, X-Men: Battle of the Atom, had their fears laid to rest today when Marvel sent out a press release revealing that the books would indeed come with covers. Showing one or more covers for five of the ten issues in the event as proof, Marvel assured fans that they were not changing their policy of putting covers on all comic books. Still, some fans were not totally convinced.

"I believe that there will be a cover for X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1," said Anthony Bussard of Oakland, CA, citing the regular cover as well as the Frank Cho variant. "But I have seen absolutely no indication that Battle of the Atom #2 will have a cover."

"Are we just supposed to take Marvel's word on this," he asked skeptically.

"Do you Outhousers just make this crap up?" asked Marvel Editor Nick Lowe when we asked him for comment?

Yes. Yes we do.

"Of course all of the books will have covers," he insisted. "Comic books have always had covers, and they always will."

Bold statements, but can they be backed up by facts? You'll have to read the press release below and decide for yourself:

Celebrate 50 years of X-Men with X-MEN: BATTLE OF THE ATOM!

Past, Present, and Future X-Men Take the Marvel Universe By Storm

New York, NY—June 13, 2013— This September, celebrate the X-Men’s 50th anniversary with the first major X-Men crossover event in over three years—X-Men: Battle of the Atom! From the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron, Brian Wood, Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo, David Lopez & Giuseppe Camuncoli, comes an event so exhilarating, and so groundbreaking that fans will be talking about this for years to come! Three X-Men universes collide in the biggest war mutantkind has ever seen, and you won’t believe how it all plays out. One thing’s for sure—no reader will come out unscathed!

“If All-New X-Men #1 was the shot heard round the world, X-Men Battle Of The Atom is Valley Forge,” explained Nick Lowe, Senior Editor, Marvel Entertainment. “And there’s no group of creators I’d rather go to war with than Brian [Bendis], Jason [Aaron] and Brian [Wood]. And that doesn’t even mention the murderer’s row of artists.”

Hank McCoy brought the original X-Men into the present in the hopes of changing the course of history and stopping Scott Summer’s mutant revolution before it even begins. But as the young and confused X-Men try to cope with their devastating futures, the team begins to unravel from the inside. And just as mutant civil war is about to hit it’s boiling point, an unexpected third party comes in to change the game—the future X-Men! They’ve traveled back in time with a warning—the original X-Men need to go back to their rightful time or they will be the final nail in mutantkind’s coffin. They risked everything to come to the past and won’t leave until the All-New X-Men are back in the past. It’s monumental! It’s earth-shattering! It’s X-Men: Battle of the Atom!

Beginning in September and ending in October, this 10-part weekly event is not one any fan can miss:

• Part 1: X-Men Battle of the Atom #1
• Part 2: All-New X-Men #16
• Part 3: X-Men #5
• Part 4: Uncanny X-Men #12
• Part 5: Wolverine & The X-Men #36
• Part 6: All-New X-Men #17
• Part 7: X-Men # 6
• Part 8: Uncanny X-Men #13
• Part 9: Wolverine & The X-Men #37
• Part 10: X-Men: Battle of The Atom #2

Don’t miss out on the event of the season! Who will become unlikely allies? What is S.H.I.E.L.D.’s master plan? What are the consequences for altering time and space? Most importantly, what will determine the fate of our favorite superheroes? This fall, all will be revealed in X-Men: Battle of the Atom!

they mean strictly X-Men.. there hasn't been a crossover in 3 years. AvX was an "event book" crossover implies its crossing between the books which AvX or Schism didn't do..

Yeah, I'm calling bullshit on Marvel on that. It's all the same thing.

Big Crossover-Hate them
Being written primarily by Bendis-hasn't written a worthwhile crossover
Event book-Fucking dumb.

So obviously I'm uncontrollably excited for this story. I mean really I've been enjoying the X-men since schism and yes I even enjoyed most of AvX and Wolverine and the X-men is awesome. Fuck, I can't believe I'm excited for this.

Hopefully Battle of the Atom will be the crossover event where we discover once and for all that:

Because he was/is. :-D

But yeah, I'm actually looking forward to this. Maybe it's because the X-Titles have been really good lately.
