Charles Xavier is gone.
Through some fateful circumstance, Xavier’s son Legion traveled backwards in time and inadvertently caused the disappearance.
The watchful tyrant Apocalypse capitalized on this opportune moment, and immediately began a violent campaign to seize control of the entire world. He now controls what used to be the continental United States of America, and has set his sights on the rest of the globe.
Several hundred millions are dead. A large part of the world lay in ruins. Survival of the fittest has become an accelerated process.
But Charles Xavier’s dream of peace was held strong. It was adopted by the man that, in another time, would have been Xavier’s greatest opposition: Magneto.
Professor X is missing, but the legacy of the X-Men continues… in the Age of Apocalypse.
