After the effects of M-Day, who knew if there would ever be another mutant born in the world. In Messiah CompleX: One-Shot, a new mutant has arrived, and that causes nothing but trouble. Marvel has sent a limited sneak peek of the issue that spotlights things to come.

Since the events of M-Day, the mutant population has been reduced to a mere handful and no new mutants have been born. But all that changes in the highly-anticipated, extra-sized X-Men: Messiah CompleX One-Shot, from Eisner and Harvey winning “Best Writer” Ed Brubaker and superstar artist Marc Silvestri, when the X-Men discover a new mutant has arrived. But this cause for celebration is tainted by the early arrival of the Marauders and the Purifiers—and with those two groups involved, the X-Men may not find this mutant! But if they do, will this new player prove to be their savior or a harbinger of doom for mutantkind? A perfect jumping on point for new readers, this special one-shot sets the stage for the jaw-dropping changes to come! This issue features NINE extra pages of hints of what’s to come, drawn by some of the hottest talents today while red-hot artists David Finch and Silvestri provide two stunning covers, with the latter available as the X-Men: Messiah CompleX Poster.

    Not really sure how big of a role Wolverine has in this, but does Marvel/XMen have to stick him on every single cover. This got old 10 years ago.
