Mutantkind needs the Comicbook/XMen more than ever. Itís going to take something extraordinary to save them.

''Extraordinary X-Men'' is a comic book series born out of Marvel Comics' ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel 2015 brand-relaunching. The series is written by Creator/JeffLemire (of ComicBook/AnimalMan fame) and penciled by Humberto Ramos. The series replaces ''Comicbook/UncannyXMen'' as the "main" title during All-New All-Different Marvel, and depicts the new status quo for the X-Men.

After [[Comicbook/SecretWars2015 Secret Wars]] ends, the entire Franchise/MarvelUniverse does a TimeSkip to eight months later. During that time period, something happens between the X-Men and Comicbook/TheInhumans (later revealed in Comicbook/DeathOfX) which leads to mutantkind being more endangered than before; namely the terrigen cloud drifting across Earth waking up latent Inhumans' powers having a terrible effect on mutants. Some of the X-Men have left the team and leader Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} is nowhere to be found. During this trying time, Comicbook/{{Storm}} assembles a team consisting of ComicBook/{{Colossus}}, ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}}, ComicBook/{{Iceman}}, Comicbook/JeanGrey ([[ComicBook/AllNewXMen the teenage Jean Grey displaced from the past]]), [[ComicBook/IllyanaRasputin Magik]], and ComicBook/OldManLogan who's been displaced from his universe.

Also see ''Comicbook/UncannyXMen'', the previous "main" title going under a DarkerAndEdgier direction for volume 4. See also ''Comicbook/AllNewXMen'', the series teenage Jean Grey is from, and ''ComicBook/OldManLogan2016'', where Logan's solo adventures continue.

Whether or not this was because Marvel wanted the Inhumans to have the "Uncanny" adjective due to the Inhumans being the Film/MarvelCinematicUniverse's [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute stand-in for mutants]] is a matter of opinion.
