The mutant known as Vulcan (and brother to X-Men veterans Cyclops and Havok) has conquered the Shi'ar empire and ascended the throne, but he'll find his reign challenged in X-Men: Emperor Vulcan #1 (of 5)! Written by Christopher Yost (New X-Men) and penciled by Paco Diaz, with covers by "Young Gun" Billy Tan, this all-new, all-different limited series pits the new Starjammers, led by Havok, against his brother's Shi'ar forces in an intergalactic clash of titans! But as both sides delve deeper into this conflict, each must question their positions. Is Vulcan really the savior of the Shi'ar? Do the X-Men, now aligned with the Starjammers, truly belong in this battle? And can Vulcan be stopped after already defeating the X-Men once before?

During the acclaimed "Rise & Fall Of The Shi'ar Empire" storyline, Havok and his team of X-Men vowed to stop his rogue brother from destroying the lives of billions. But as the group of renegades prepares for the final confrontation with an entire empire, they must also confront their own personal demons if they hope to survive on the battlefield. Meanwhile, Vulcan's quest for domination continues and we'll see just how things have changed during his reign!

This fall, the intergalactic tension just got ratcheted up to 11...and two brothers are on a crash course with destiny! But when X-Men: Emperor Vulcan is said and done, will Havok and Vulcan still be enemies? Of course, that's assuming they survive!

And don't miss Uncanny X-Men: Rise & Fall Of The Shi'ar Empire HC, by Eisner-Winning "Best Writer" Ed Brubaker, which shows just how Vulcan took control…and what the X-Men sacrificed in their battle against him!
