Cover by SIMONE BIANCHI
The X-Men are called to the scene of a murder that appears to have involved heretofore unknown mutants. The team's resident scientist, Beast, discovers that though the victim was indeed a mutant, his mutation appears to be artificially produced. The team races to a spaceship graveyard in Indonesia in their search for the murderer, who they find huddled over the mysterious Ghost Box, preparing to activate it. The murderer reveals himself to also be a mutant, but commits suicide rather than give the X-Men any information as to his, or the Ghost Box's, origins. With mysterious, artificially created mutants popping up out of nowhere, the X-Men must struggle to unlock the mysteries of the Ghost Box: What is the device's purpose, and why was it sent to Earth?

After firing the winning shot in the battle to repel a massive alien invasion, the former Green Goblin, Norman Osborn, was able to position himself as the planet's savior, parlaying his newfound popularity into a job heading up the new peacekeeping organization H.A.M.M.E.R. But while some super heroes might be willing to fall in line behind Osborn, the Punisher just ain't one of them. Joining forces with a tech-savvy young partner, Castle sets about taking Osborn down. The Punisher normally favors the bluntest of methods -- a bullet to the brain -- but with his target's influence so far-reaching and his corruption so deep-seated, Frank and his new associate must first gather evidence of the former Green Goblin's wrongdoing. And if you expect there to be some gunfire and ultraviolence along the way, well...you won't be disappointed! Collecting PUNISHER #1-5.
