The latest Marvel Now comic book in the All-New X-Men features the original members from 1963 transported in the present time. This premise takes place after Cyclops escapes after the war with the Avenger along with him is Emma Frost and Magneto who began a crusade against mutant 'prosecution', freeing mutants who are being held prisoner after their powers have manifested, violently striking out at the humans responsible at the same time.
As the other X-Men bemoan their inability to strike back at Cyclops's actions without triggering a mutant civil war, a frustrated comment by Iceman about how the past Cyclops wouldn't tolerate his present self's actions inspires Beast to take action; he travels back in time to the early days of the Xavier Institute shortly after Professor X has taken a leave of absence and Hank's younger self was about to temporarily leave the X-Men for the first time -- to recruit their assistance, informing them that Scott must come to the future to stop himself committing mutant genocide.
The Philippine launch by Castle Geek will release not only the standard cover but also the variant editions and will raffle some sketches done by local artists as well as other surprises so come visit the event on November 17, 2012.
