While Austin Powers may not make an appearance in Mojo Worldwide, the upcoming crossover between X-Men: Gold and X-Men: Blue, two upcoming titles in Marvel Legacy, the series will copy the 2015 Secret Wars series, in that it'll revisit the X-Men's greatest hits. Stories teased to be included are Days of Future Past and Asgardian Wars and characters to appear include Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix

One of the writers of the crossover, Cullen "Hotdog" Bunn, spoke to TV And Movies, Rarely Comic Books Dot Com, regarding the in-story use of a ratings grab and the meta-use of a ratings grab.

Let's tackle this one from a story perspective AND a meta perspective (hey–you brought it up). From a story perspective, Mojo is experiencing crashing ratings in his home dimension. The reason for this ratings nose-dive will have to remain a secret for now, because it's fun and I don't want to spoil the surprise.

From a meta perspective, we knew we wanted to do a Mojo story, but some of us worried that readers don't find Mojo to be much of a threat because his stories always take place in the alternate dimension of Mojoworld. Well, we decided to blow that misconception out of the water straight away by bringing Mojo to our world. We want Mojo to be sort of quirky and weird, but also scary and threatening. And we're bringing him right to your doorstep.

Be prepared for cross-mojulation this fall.
