Reign Of X Reading Guide

I’ve done Dawn Of X part 1, and Dawn Of X part 2, so it’s time for Reign Of X!

Part 1 gave you all the information about individual teams and their bind ups, so I’m just going to give you the new teams getting bind ups/single issues, and then go through the bind ups named Reign Of X.

And, a quick apology for the smaller pictures, I can only find small images and I don’t want them pixellated beyond recognition. If I find larger images, I’ll replace them later.

The new teams to collect are:

S.W.O.R.D. by Al Ewing

One giant leap for mutantkind! The new nation of Krakoa has quickly become a major force on the world stage, but why stop there? The X-Men have relaunched the Sentient World Observation & Response Directorate, a fully independent organization dealing with all things extraterrestrial on behalf of Earth. And S.W.O.R.D. is thrown right into the deep end of a planetary crisis as Krakoa battles the invading King in Black! Meanwhile, Abigail Brand prepares a deniable operation all her own. What is Protocol V, and can the Earth survive it? Then, walk a mile in the Manifold’s shoes as S.W.O.R.D.’s Quintician takes a journey across the universe — and comes face-to-face with a deadly enemy! And as the Quiet Council discusses the rules of murder on Krakoa, in space the killings have already begun.

Just as a quick note – S.W.O.R.D. has two volumes to it, the second comes out on the 16th of February. Also, this specific team ties into King In Black, if you want to read that too.

Children Of The Atom by Vita Ayala

WHEN DID THE X–MEN GET SIDEKICKS?!

Now! Don’t miss the debut of the greatest teenage super hero team of all time! They’ve learned from the best, now they’re ready to be put to the test! But who the heck are these kids, and where do they come from? Guest-starring the X–Men!

Way Of X by Si Spurrier

On Krakoa, mutantkind has built a new Eden… but there are serpents in this garden. Some mutants struggle to fit in. Some mutants turn to violence and death. And the children whisper of the Patchwork Man, singing in their hearts. Only one mutant senses the looming shadows. Snared by questions of death, law and love, only Nightcrawler can fight for the soul of Krakoa. Only he – and the curious crew he assembles – can help mutants defeat their inner darkness… and find a new way to live! But the malevolent force hiding within Krakoa has begun to show its true form, and answers are hidden… within the Mindscape! One of the world’s most dangerous mutants is reborn as Si Spurrier and Bob Quinn push the frontiers of Krakoa in an unmissable entry in the unfolding Reign of X!

X-Corp by Tini Howard

Krakoa is for closers! The deals have been made. Mutantkind is safe on its new island nation. As the Reign of X continues, what are the wants of the mutants who have everything? Leading the charge is X-Corporation, headed by CXOs Monet St. Croix and Warren Worthington – a duo as cutthroat and ruthless in the boardroom as they are on the battlefield. But X-Corp needs more than just its figureheads. And as Monet sets out to staff their team with some of the brightest and most devious mutant minds available, Warren finds himself in a tense meeting with one of Krakoa’s first allies, who wants to know the truth: on Angel’s wings, will X-Corp crash or soar? 

Hellfire Gala by various

Don your finest dress or sharpest suit — or get Jumbo Carnation to whip you up something new just for the occasion! Because you are cordially invited to the hottest mutant event of the season — the Hellfire Gala! Everyone who’s anyone in the hot new world of mutantkind will be there. All of your favorite heroes, their closest allies…and even their worst enemies…for a special night of dinner, drinks, diplomacy and deceit! The very first democratically-elected team of Krakoan X-Men will at last be revealed to the world…and that’s just the first of the surprises that mutantkind has in store for the evening! Whatever you do, don’t miss this one-of-a-kind red carpet X-event!

X-Men by Gerry Duggan

THESE X-MEN ARE… FEARLESS! The heroes of Krakoa are here to save the planet! Things might be complicated between the nation of Krakoa and the rest of the world, but to the X-MEN, things are simple — you do what’s right, you protect those who need protecting and you save the world we all share. Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Sunfire, Rogue, Wolverine, Synch and Polaris are the chosen champions of mutantkind, and they will not shrink from any battle for their home planet. Writer Gerry Duggan (MARAUDERS, DEADPOOL, UNCANNY AVENGERS) reteams with superstar artist Pepe Larraz (HOUSE OF X, X OF SWORDS, UNCANNY AVENGERS) to chart the course of the X-Men in a world of the Reign of X!

Onslaught Revelation by Si Spurrier

YOU HAVE STRAYED FROM THE WAY OF X. THE ONSLAUGHT IS UPON YOU! The X-Men’s greatest foe, mutantkind’s primal evil, slithers in the minds of its most senior leaders… The kids whisper of the CRUCI-BALL: a party to end all parties. A party to end everything. The seals are broken, the trumpets have sounded; only a small band of eccentric mutants can hope to break the fall… Can Nightcrawler light the spark that will drive out the shadows… or will Krakoa slip into the abyss…?

Trial Of Magneto by Leah Williams

THE STORY THAT WILL SHAKE KRAKOA TO ITS CORE! A horrific murder. A shocking revelation. A trial that will divide the new mutant nation. Leah Williams and Valerio Schiti bring you a new epic that threatens the Reign of X and will upend the world of mutants. The truth is hidden, the danger is far from over, and the trial has begun

Reign Of X

Reign Of X Volumes 1-8 by various

After the Dawn comes the Reign! In the wake of X OF SWORDS, it’s one giant leap for mutantkind as Krakoa turns its attentions to space – and relaunches S.W.O.R.D.! Back on Krakoa, Cyclops and his allies grapple with the ramifications of their recent ordeal and the fateful decisions that were made – setting in motion the X-Men’s next evolution! Meanwhile, the resurrection protocols have been thrown into chaos – and as the Five deal with the fallout, it’s up to X-Factor to restore order! And as Sinister continues to scheme, the recently reborn Hellions face an urgent mission to retrieve Nanny’s ship and build new armour for a transformed – and deadly – Orphan-Maker!

If you’re like me, you prefer the Reign Of X bind ups, where you know you’ve got every issue in every series, and you’re reading everything in order. So, without being long-winded, you just have to make sure you have Reign Of X volumes 1-10 (volumes 9 and 10 are coming on the 22nd of February and the 15th of March) and you’ll be good to go for this latest X-Men run!

And that’s all you need to know until we get into the next part of the X-Men’s current story: Inferno!

I hope this helped, and if you have any questions, please leave them down below and I’ll get right back to you!
