X-Men ’92: House of XCII announced mixing House if X and X-Men 92
Marvel has announced a new limited series titled X-Men ’92: House of XCII which mixes elements from X-Men 92 aka X-Men: The Animated Series with elements from House of X / Powers of X.
This will be a five issue limited series which will be hitting stores in April 2022 and will be written by Steve Foxe and art by Salva Espin. As mentioned, the book borrows the main element from Jonathan Hickman’s awesome book House of X and Powers of X. That means that the mutants will be starting a new life in Krakoa.

“One of my earliest memories is of buying a Garrison Kane action figure, complete with ‘snap-back living hand,’ so to say that the ’90s X-Men comics had a big impact on my development is an understatement,” Foxe said. “Getting the opportunity to pay tribute to such an important era in mutant history 30 years later — and to remix the franchise-redefining work currently being done by creators like Jonathan Hickman, Tini Howard, and Gerry Duggan — is the definition of a ‘dream gig,’ especially with some of the WILD deviations we’re taking from the source material. If I died tomorrow, I’d be happy…but please resurrect me ASAP on Krakoa.”
Espin added that he had start collecting X-Men comics in the ’90s, and “the character designs of this era have always been the most attractive and powerful to me.”
“Those comics and the animated series made my imagination fly and very soon I began to make illustrations and mini comics as a fan that I shared with my schoolmates,” Espin said. “These were the first drawings that encouraged me to pursue the dream of becoming a comic artist. With this book, we intend to pay tribute to that powerful era that was the ’90s. The moment when super heroes looked better than ever with colorful tight-fitting spandex.”
Over the course of Hickman’s monumental run on the X-Men titles beginning in 2019, Marvel’s most uncanny team turned Krakoa into a sovereign nation-state and delved into the secrets of mutant resurrection. In August 2021, Hickman announced that he would be leaving the X-Men books after the conclusion of Inferno, a four-issue mini-series centered around Mystique, to focus on other projects.
