The Uncanny X-Men Fight For Their Survival!

 

As the Humanity NOW! Coalition spreads its anti-mutant hate like wildfire, violence breaks out everywhere, leaving only one  group left to oppose them—the X-Men! The acclaimed creative team of Matt Fraction (Invincible Iron Man) and Terry Dodson present Uncanny X-Men #506 and the future of mutantkind doesn’t look so bright! Only the X-Men’s fringe science team (Beast, Angel and some new allies) can change things before it’s too late! A HUGE discovery makes the chance of survival very small – it’s a race against time like never before!
