Marvel Comics has released a preview of Avengers & X-Men: AXIS #9, the final issue of the event series, from writer Rick Remender and artists Jim Cheung, Terry Dodson and Leinil Yu. AXIS #9 will be the final chapter of “Act III: New World Disorder.”
Here’s Marvel’s description of the issue’s story:
Armies of heroes and villains wage war in the streets of Manhattan as the X-Men and their leader Apocalypse prepare to annihilate all of humanity. With the remaining Avengers twisted and corrupted by the Inversion, our only hope lies with the most despicable villains in the Marvel Universe. Led by the frail and vulnerable Steve Rogers, these villains are all that stands in the way of total obliteration.
To save everything, sacrifices will be made – and the lives of Avengers and X-Men alike will be torn asunder. An X-Man will meet their horrifying fate! An Avenger will make an appalling choice! An old foe must claim the mantle of his greatest enemy. And a new team of Uncanny Avengers will be born!
Avengers & X-Men: AXIS #9 goes on sale in December.
