Written by KATHRYN IMMONEN with CHRIS CLAREMONT
Penciled by PHIL NOTO with MARC SILVESTRI
Cover by OLIVIER COIPEL
STRAIGHT OUT OF THE PAGES OF X-MEN AND RIGHT INTO THE JUGULAR! Jubilee is about as far away from the ideal X-Man as it’s possible for a 17-year-old minty fresh vampire to be. While the X-Men try to find a way to give her as normal a life as is inhumanly feasible, her decidedly abnormal vampire cravings will not be denied. Between that and her newfound powers, she’s winning the fights — but not the popularity contests among most of the other X-Kids. Most, but not all. And just when Jubilee starts to think that there’s no place for her anywhere, a group of vampire women make her an offer she can’t refuse. It seems like the perfect solution, unless Wolverine has anything to say about it! Collecting WOLVERINE AND JUBILEE #1-4 and Jubilee’s first appearance from 1989’s UNCANNY X-MEN #244.

For more than a year, no new mutants manifested — until the mutant baby girl Hope came along. Under the watchful eye of the mutant soldier Cable, she was sent into the future for safekeeping. Now, Cable and Hope have returned. Many view Hope as the Mutant Messiah, who will lead the race into a peaceful and prosperous future. However, the Human League is bent on eradicating the last mutants on Earth so mankind can evolve. Led by Bastion, a highly evolved mutant-hunting Sentinel robot, the Human League sees the death of Hope as the final nail in the mutants’ coffin. The future of an entire race rests on Hope’s shoulders. Will this be the end of mutantkind? Or its Second Coming?
