Immersed in the dark and gritty world of noir, the X-Men take on a drastic new role as their debut series comes to a stunning conclusion in X-Men Noir #4! Straight out of the red-hot Marvel Noir line, the creative team of Fred Van Lente and Dennis Calero set the stage for an action packed finale to an already fast paced tale of mystery and intrigue. The shadowy figure known only as “The Angel” bursts onto the scene, but what are his true intentions? Also, be sure not miss a stunning variant cover by series artist Dennis Calero!
