The X-Men have fought their war on multiple fronts and now the fallout comes in Messiah CompleX Chapter 6, as featured in Uncanny X-Men #493! Eisner & Harvey winning Ed Brubaker teams up with red hot "Young Gun" artist Billy Tan for the next x-citing chapter of the critically acclaimed X-Men event! After the shocking conclusion to X-Men #205, the heroic mutants must come to terms with a jaw-dropping revelation--while under assault from a force close to home! By issue's end, one will rise up to lead them and one group embarks on a mission from which there where may be no return! But just what is Sinister's endgame?

Fans and critics agree--Messiah CompleX is a triumph! "I'm intrigued, and cannot wait to see where this is all going," said Christopher Power of SilverBulletComicBooks.Com. "I love the idea of this story, with all of the rules of what makes a mutant being thrown out the window."

"This looks to have all the great elements that made the x-crossovers of the past decade such a memorable hit among the fans!" exclaimed Manolis Vamvounis of ComicsNexus.Com.

It's all-out war for the X-Men and their opponents, but after the events of this issue, who'll be left standing? Look out for Messiah CompleX Chapter 6 in Uncanny X-Men #493, as the answers are revealed!

Don't miss a single chapter of Messiah CompleX!
