Inhumans Vs. X-Men Reading Order

Inhumans Vs. X-Men (often called IVX) is a crossover event from 2016 which came as a result of Secret Empire with Inhumans Vs. X-Men providing closure following that event. There are some elements of Civil War II for background reading but nothing huge.

This makes Inhumans Vs. X-Men not an integral part of the timeline but still a decent read overall. It’s short and sweet with very few loose ends which makes it easy to collect and read in order.

The premise of this arc is simple – terigen clouds which are appearing across the world are vital for Inhuman evolution but are deadly to mutants. Hence, one faction wants them and the other doesn’t. How can they come to a compromise where everyone’s happy?

Note: All-New Inhumans stopped after volume 2 making the reading order more favourable to X-Men.

Inhumans vs. X-Men trade reading order and checklist

There is no omnibus for IvX and probably never be one. That being said, you only need 5 to get the full set.

If you have the trades, use the Inhumans vs. X-Men issue by issue reading order to find what order to read them in.

Preludes

The following trades are not officially a part of the events but they do set the scene for Inhumans vs. X-Men. Read them if you want to have a clearer vision of how things escalated and why. These won’t be included in the issue by issue reading order as most are self contained with only casual references and hints to what’s to come.
