Marvel Comics has released a five-page preview of next week’s Wolverine & the X-Men #13, an Avengers vs. X-Men tie-in. Wolverine has, of course, found himself at the heart of Avengers vs. X-Men due to his relationships with both teams–but now we get yet another moving piece in the AvX battle: The Imperial Guard of the Shi’Ar Empire, coming to Earth in the hopes of combating the Phoenix but arriving in time to find out that the Phoenix has taken on not one, but five hosts–all members of their onetime allies the X-Men.
Can even Wolverine keep a powerhouse like Gladiator from bringing his friends down? The issue hits the stands on July 11.
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Wolverine & the X-Men #13! They’ve helped fight the Phoenix before, and this July – the Imperial Guard brings the might of the Shi’Ar army to Earth to take on the Phoenix Five! With his son caught in the crossfire, Gladiator must take matters into his own hands to save him. The blockbuster creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Nick Bradshaw bring you high-stakes action AND the secret history of Warbird in Wolverine & the X-Men #13, coming to comic shops everywhere, the Marvel Comics app and the Marvel Digital Comics Shop this July.
