I would like to confirm if this reading order for X-Men story arcs is correct. (For example, I've heard that “Messiah Complex” actually comes before “House of M”.)

Is the following reading order correct?

  • The Dark Phoenix Saga
  • Days of Future Past
  • God Loves, Man Kills
  • Mutant Massacre
  • Fall of the Mutants
  • Inferno
  • Days of Future Present
  • X-Tinction Agenda
  • Muir Island Saga
  • X-Cutioner Song
  • Fatal Attractions
  • Phalanx Covenant
  • Age of Apocalypse
  • Legion Quest
  • Onslaught
  • Children of the Atom
  • Operation: Zero Tolerance
  • The Twelve
  • Dream's End
  • Eve of Destruction
  • E is for Extinction
  • Riot at Xavier's
  • Assault on Weapon Plus
  • Planet X
  • Here Comes Tomorrow
  • Gifted
  • House of M
  • Decimation
  • Unstoppable
  • Deadly Genesis
  • Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire
  • Endangered Species
  • Messiah Complex
  • Divided We Stand
  • Manifest Destiny
  • X-Infernus
  • Messiah War
  • Utopia
  • Nation X
  • Necrosha
  • Second Coming
  • Curse of the Mutants
  • The Five Lights
  • Age of X
  • Schism
  • Regenesis
  • Avengers vs. X-Men
