On Monday, May 13, 20th Century Fox kicked off X-Men Day – a celebration of the culmination of the X-Men saga, its global fanbase, all the beloved characters, its groundbreaking impact on popular culture and enduring audience appeal for nearly 20 years. X-Men Day also honored the legacy of the X-Men franchise by kicking off advance ticket sales for DARK PHOENIX! Fan celebrations of all things X-Men occurred online and all over the world including the debut of exclusive X-Men content, special events, and unexpected surprises for the most loyal fans.

Only 12 comic stores across the nation hosted X-Men Day celebrations. Maximum Comics, in Henderson ,NV, was chosen as one of the 12 to host their own exclusive event! Maximum Comics opened its doors to a full crowd & line outside the building with excited fans! The first 100 people through the door received a DARK PHOENIX "Inspired By" character poster, prize pack including magnet, pin and phone grip as well as an original piece of artwork from Arnel Baluyot (@theninjabot on social).

Arnel also hosted an original comic drawing lesson. Those who participated were entered to win screening passes and Fandango gift cards! Fans were encouraged to come dressed in their best X-MEN cosplay for additional prizing. The grand prize of the night was an authentic Magneto helmet!

The Amazing Las Vegas Cosplayers took photos with attendees at the red carpet step-and-repeat.

X 107.5 FM and Ross Mahoney from the morning show hosted trivia for fans to win advance screening passes!

Attendees were welcome to indulge in a delicious DARK PHOENIX themed mocktail and DARK PHOENIX themed sliders from Slidin' Thru catering. One was a fiery "Dark Phoenix" buffalo chicken slider and one a non-spicy beef slider named "Jean Grey".

The event was a great success, and fans had a blast celebrating their favorite franchise! We would love for you to share with your audience!
