Readers of House of M and all X-Men stories after that know there hasn’t been a mutant birth in quite a while, putting all mutants on the endangered species list. In June the X-Men Endangered Species One-Shot hits stands where another mutant dies (I think it is Storm) lowering the mutant population by one.
Marvel has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue that ties into all of the other X-Men titles including this fall’s major X-Men event.
X-MEN: ENDANGERED SPECIES ONE-SHOT

“This is an elegy – and a story where, for once, action gets put on the back burner” said Carey. “We’re looking at a different kind of courage here, and a different kind of crisis. Everything over the past year has built towards this point. This is like the prelude to a symphony. And the symphony is going to have cannons in it, but the prelude is in a different key altogether.”
This self-contained, double-sized one-shot provides the perfect jumping-on point for fans new and old, defining the current status of the X-Men and thrusting forward into a bold new direction for all of Marvel’s mutants!
