Exclusive Preview: Extermination #5 Kills off One of the X-Men
Hank McCoy just wanted to save his people. To prevent a Mutant civil war, the Beast brought the original five X-Men to the present. Naturally, they didn’t like what they found, and the 05 X-Men decided to stay until they made a difference. That was a big mistake, because they’ve lingered too long. Ahab, the Hound Master from the Days of Future Past timeline, has arrived. And he’s realized that he only needs to kill one of the original X-Men to ensure the darkest outcome occurs.
In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Extermination #5, Ed Brisson and artist Pepe Larraz reveal the identity of Ahab’s latest victim. An X-Man is dead, and the rest of the team are rapidly being turned into Hounds as well. Things are beginning to look hopeless, when even Honey Badger and X-Force have been turned. However, there may be help on the way. And the original X-Men aren’t going down without a fight. One way or another, the saga of the 05 ends here.
Here’s the official description from Marvel: “It all ends here!!! The original five X-Men have taken the fight back to Ahab…but at what cost? Who lives? Who dies? The X-Men will never be the same again.”
