Marvel has been investing heavily in the X-Men in the comics over the past few years. Since Jonathan Hickman took charge of the mutant universe in 2019, a new era for heroes has begun, and the publisher seems pretty pleased with the results.

Now in 2022, the situation will change with Hickman leaving the corner of Marvel's X-Men, but not in the way most comic book enthusiasts are used to.
Usually, when a writer leaves a title, very big changes to the series' status quo become a thing of the past. The chronology continues to exist, but especially in recent years, publishers such as Marvel and DC usually give each author the freedom to make their own approach to that universe.

In addition, Marvel is aggressively marketing the new phase of the X-Men universe. This is apparent from the new version of Wolverine's origin, preparing big news in titles like Immortal X-Men and, especially with a little more than a minute commercial explaining life on Krakoa, which can be seen below:

A few years ago it looked like the Krakoa phase would be just another fleeting moment in the history of mutants.

Who knows what the future holds for Xavier's pupils?
