The X-Men must end the curse of the Man-Thing
Marvel celebrates the 50th anniversary of one of its most unique creations. Critically-acclaimed writer Steve Orlando has given Marvel fans a three-part Curse Of The Man-Thing. Avengers: Curse Of The Man-Thing will kick-off in March and Spider-Man: Curse Of The Man-Thing will be released in April. The Marvel Universe-spanning saga will reach its climatic conclusion in May with X-Men: Curse Of The Man-Thing. Throughout the series Orlando will be joined by incredible artists including Francesco Mobili and Marco Failla, and will be teaming up with Andrea Broccardo for the unforgettable finale.
Man-Thing’s tragic curse has finally been revealed… but it’s under new management! Years ago, Doctor Ted Sallis was ready to give up anything to crack the SO-2 serum and deliver success to his growing family. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world…he did. Cities spanning from the U.S. to Krakoa are besieged by fear-driven blazes. The Man-Thing must reckon with his past deeds if he hopes to emerge renewed and rescue a world on fire. But fighting from his lowest means that Man-Thing can rise to his highest, especially with the unexpected help of the X-Men’s resident sorceress Magik and her debuting team of monstrous mutants known as THE DARK RIDERS! Magik will lead one of the most eclectic group of mutants ever assembled, a fearsome mix of fan-favorites and obscure delights: Marrow, Forearm, Shark-Girl, Wolf Cub, and Mammomax!
