Age of Apocalypse Coming to Secret Wars

Written By: XBen3000

Age of Apocalypse returns to Marvel once again. It will be apart of the massive summer event Secret Wars. The new series is entitled AGE OF APOCALYPSE. It will be written by Fabian Nicieza and will feature the art of Gerardo Sandoval. Sandoval worked on several of the original Age of Apocalypse stories. So I’m excited to see him returning to a familiar book.

This Age of Apocalypse series is not a continuation of the original story. This will be a new universe to tell tales in. Nicieza stated that this story will be more self-contained but the actions could affect the rest of the Secret Wars worlds. Like all the other titles have the possibility to do. Here’s the information we have so far about the series. Also down below I’ll include some artwork from the upcoming series as well.

AGE OF APOCALYPSE #1
Written By FABIAN NICIEZA | Art and Cover by GERARDO SANDOVAL

His war has been won. The few humans left alive are enslaved, the mutant rebellion crushed. EN SABAH NUR, the APOCALYPSE, rules his BATTLEWORLD kingdom without mercy, but the terrorist X-MEN plan to end his reign. Success means finding one very special mutant named CYPHER and unleashing a weapon that will kill Apocalypse — and possibly all mutants, too!
AGE OF APOCALYPSE #2
Written By FABIAN NICIEZA | Art and Cover by GERARDO SANDOVAL

The hunt for CYPHER brings MAGNETO’s X-MEN into confrontation with CYCLOPS & HAVOK’s ELITE MUTANT FORCE! Meanwhile, ANGEL has to protect a “flatscan” named JEAN GREY and DR. NEMESIS plans to sabotage DARK BEAST’s quest to become APOCALYPSE’s newest HORSEMAN.
