No Spock is not landing at Xavier’s school, that would be that other hero show… Emperor Vulcan finds the Starjammers battling Shi’ar forces in a clash of the titans (also another movie).

Marvel Comics has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue that is set to arrive next month.

X-MEN: EMPEROR VULCAN #1 (of 5) (JUL072199)
Penciled by PACO DIAZ
Cover by BILLY TAN
Rated T+

During the acclaimed “Rise & Fall Of The Shi’ar Empire” storyline, Havok and his team of X-Men vowed to stop his rogue brother from destroying the lives of billions. But as the group of renegades prepares for the final confrontation with an entire empire, they must also confront their own personal demons if they hope to survive on the battlefield. Meanwhile, Vulcan’s quest for domination continues and we’ll see just how things have changed during his reign!

This fall, the intergalactic tension just got ratcheted up to 11…and two brothers are on a crash course with destiny! But when X-Men: Emperor Vulcan is said and done, will Havok and Vulcan still be enemies? Of course, that’s assuming they survive!


Emperor Vulcan #1 arrives September 12 for $2.99.

    They should have just called this series X-Men: Starjammers.

    Less confusing and wordy title.

    X-Men: Starjammers I probably would have passed on. Emperor Vulcan? I’ll be there and here’s hoping eitehr Havor or Polaris don’t make it to the last issue.

    I thought the same thing… X-Men: Starjammers would’ve been a much better title.

    Ah well… maybe a Starjammers ongoing if this does well?

    It might work given the right creative team.

    Anyone remember the Kevin Anderson written Starjammers series a few years back? It wasn’t half bad.

    X-Men: Starjammers? Nah. X-Men: Emperor Vulcan sounds better and let me assure you this series was the best yet. And what the hating on Havok and Polaris? They made it till the end, unfortunately for ya. This book was awesome with Havok and Polaris in it plus in Kingbreaker, Wars of Kings, The Rise and Fall of The Shi’Ar Empire, and more. They were all fantastic and ya knows it :)

    Polaris and Havok are the best characters ever.
