The past few years have been an exciting time to read X-Men. Marvel’s mutants experienced rapid change, adding a slew of new concepts and ideas, opening the door to countless storytelling possibilities. The Krakoa Era, as it’s referred to, proved popular by enticing new and lapsed readers into the fold while energising existing fans. However, all good things must come to an end. Fall of the House of X/Rise of the Powers of X will mark the end of the Krakoa Era by concluding long-running stories and heralding something new for the X-Men.

Find out how to read this massive comic book event with this handy reading order checklist. It recommends how you should read the duel miniseries and the tie-ins while also providing additional detail, such as background reading, release dates, and heaps more.

How to read Fall of the House of X/Rise of the Powers of X

Before diving into the reading order, it’s best to explain how Fall of the House of X/Rise of the Powers of X works. The structure of this event is similar to the event that ignited the Krakoa Era – House of X/Powers of X. These were dual miniseries that, with House of X focused on the present day and Powers of X focusing on the many lives of Moira McTaggart. Together, they told a much larger story that went back and forth between each other. Fall of the House of X and Rise of the Powers of X will operate similarly. Readers need to move between the two five-part series to get the core story.

Where the structure differs is the inclusion of tie-ins. These focus on stories that operate in the margins of the core story, showing what’s happening to other characters. It’s also an opportunity to wrap up unresolved stories of the Krakoa Era.

Do you need to read the tie-ins? You can read none of them, all of them, or something in between. It’s totally up to you. I suggest picking the ones that appeal to you based on story premise, creators involved, or character featured.

Background reading

Fall of the House of X/Rise of the Powers of X is the culmination of years of stories that go back to 2018’s House of X and Powers of X and throughout the Krakoa Era of X-Men stories. However, there are a few stories that will help if you’re attempting to get up to speed on story details.

X-Men: Hellfire Gala 2023 Special

X-Men (2021 series) #25-29
Written by Gerry Duggan. Art by Joshua Cassara, Phil Noto, and James Towe.

X-Men (2021 series) acted as one of the core series in the later periods of the Krakoa Era. The latter issues chronical much of the build-up to Fall of the House of X.

A.X.E.: Judgment Day
Written by Keiron Gillen. Art by Valerio Schiti and others.

A.X.E.: Judgment Day is a 2022 event between The Avengers, X-Men, and The Eternals, which featured Magneto’s death. Check out this event out if you’re looking to read the Resurrection of Magneto tie-in. You can find out more about A.X.E.: Judgment Day with this reading order.

Immortal X-Men #1-18
Written by Keiron Gillen. Art by Lucas Werneck, Michele Bandini, and Paco Medina.

Immortal X-Men was one of the core X-Men series during the Destiny of X and Fall of X phases of the Krakoa Era. It focused on the Quiet Council, with all kinds of twists and turns, and a few ongoing mysteries. The X-Men: Forever tie-in will conclude many of the dangling plot-points.

Sins of Sinister
Written by Keiron Gillen, Al Ewing, and Si Spurrier. Art by Lucas Werneck, Paco Medina, Andrea Di Vito, and Alessandro Vitti.

Sins of Sinister was an event that explored a dystopian future created by Mr Sinister. While the big reset button was hit on this world, returning it to what it was before, it left readers with a big revelation. This is set to be explored in Rise of the Powers of X. Find out how to read Sins of Sinister with this reading order.

House of X/Powers of X
Written by Jonathan Hickman. Art by Pepe Larraz and R.B Silva.

It’s likely that you’ve already read House of X/Powers of X if you’re looking at this reading order. However, it might be worth rereading as a curiosity. I suspect that there will be some interesting symmetry at work between HOX/POX and FHX/RPX as the latter winds up what was established in the former. Check out our reading order if you need a refresher on how to read it.

What’s next for the X-Men?

Fall of the House of X/Rise of the Powers of X is the conclusion of the X-Men’s Krakoa Era. However, it’s unclear what will follow it. Will it be something drastic or revert to something more classic or familiar? We have no idea.

What we do we know?

  1. It will be stewarded by editor Tom Brevoort, who has taken care of The Avengers, Fantastic Four, and many other series for a very long time.
  2. This new era begins in July 2024
  3. It will potentially be released under a banner called “From The Ashes“.

I’ll update this section when we know more in early 2024.
