The Original X-Men Face Their Older Selves in a Battle of Ideals

The original X-Men are not strangers to time travel. In 2013, they were plucked from the past and transported to the future by the adult version of Beast, who hoped that they could change the course of history and prevent Cyclops from going rogue. This intriguing storyline unfolded in Brian Michael Bendis’ widely acclaimed series, “All-New X-Men.” After their eye-opening adventure, these young mutants were sent back to their original timeline, their memories conveniently wiped clean.

But now, they are back in the future, and their memories are restored. The Phoenix Force has summoned them to help save the Multiverse from a mysterious menace. But there is a catch. In their cosmic odyssey, they may come face to face with their older, more battle-hardened selves. These older versions of themselves have made compromises and hard choices along the way. They may not agree with their younger selves’ idealism and optimism. They may even see them as enemies.

The original X-Men must grapple with the dilemma of either persuading their older selves to alter their paths or finding a way to thwart them. It’s a battle of ideals and experience, with the fate of the Multiverse hanging in the balance.
