X-Men: Deadly Genesis Conclusion Leads Into Brubaker's Uncanny X-Men Run

The hit X-Men series that spun out of House of M reaches it jaw-dropping conclusion in X-Men: Deadly Genesis #6. This ending is one not to be missed as the ramifications of this issue lead directly into X-Men: Deadly Genesis writer Ed Brubaker's run on Uncanny X-Men beginning with issue #475.

Adam Chapman of Comixtreme.com said, "Without a doubt, with this mini-series Ed Brubaker is telling one of the best written X-Men stories that's been published…His work is a breath of fresh-air, providing a classic X-Men story, yet in a modern style and utilizing a modern sensibility, finding each character's voice and making it all work and mesh together beautifully."

Humphrey Lee of Ain't It Cool News said, "I think when this is all said and done it's going to go down as one of the more important X-Men stories."

The extra-length finale of X-Men: Deadly Genesis answers all the questions that Ed Brubaker and Trevor Hairsine have been building for 5 issues including what happened to the third Summers brother, what is Xavier's dark secret, and what really happened on Krakoa all those years ago?

X-Men: Deadly Genesis #6 is an issue not to be missed because this senses-shattering conclusion will affect the X-Universe for years to come.
