    Age Of Xavier

    Books included: Uncanny X-Men, X-Men, X-Men Legacy, Uncanny X-Force, New Mutants

    Issue 1 – Legion is slowly piecing his mind back together after his traumatic time in Limbo. Until he feels mysteriously compelled to go offshore, to San Francisco. He walks right into an AMBUSH. Nasty Boys! Attack! Massacre of Nasty boys, Legion smash. Once Legion defeats his enemies, from out of the chaos walks Cassie Nova! Legion’s aunt! She’s always wanted a nephew. She persuades him to revisit a time in his life where he thought a dead Magneto would be a wonderful thing. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing? What would have happened if when you tried he kill Magneto. . .he actually did. Legion and Cassie go back in time to Nazi Germany, and make sure Magneto is never born. MEGA REALITY SHIFT BZZZZ. It didn’t create an alternate timeline, it changed everything. Cassandra had a DOOMLOCK. Which makes everything you do in the past affect the future. PAD made it. It’s a real thing. So, the world shifts,everything goes fuzzy, and the world comes back. Everything is. . perfect?

    Issue 2: President Charles Xavier! Everything in this new universe it fine and dandy. Mutants and Humans live together peacefully. There is no brotherhood of evil mutants, no superheroism. The Avengers disbanded years ago, there is no supercrime to worry about. Everything is perfect. Except for one woman. She wanders about the streets of Utopia with a fabulous hood, calling everything a lie. In this issue we learn all about Xavier’s perfect world. He keeps everyone safe with his cadre of X-Men (Sage, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Vulcan &Havok) It’s a beautiful place. The issue ends with the woman holding up a picture of Xavier & Cassie Nova, hugging and smiling. “This isn’t right” The woman drops her hood. It’s Raven Darkholme!

    Issue 3 – Mystique is NOT CONTENT with the state of the world. Something is rotten. Before some fantastic exposition can take place, Nightcrawler, Destiny & Rogue come back; they’re a family in this universe! But Nightcrawler isn’t a devout catholic, Xavier is the only god this world needs. Rogue accidentally absorbed the powers of Xavier’s right hand man Banshee last time they fought. Oops. Destiny’s mask has more rhinestones than usual. While the gang are unpacking the groceries, suddenly, the window smashes open, in burst the CLAW GANG. Personal enemies of Mystique. (Sabertooth, Wolverine, Wild Child & tThe Native). The fight seems pretty even, Mystique has her massive gun, destiny has the crossbow, it’s all good. Then the claws start to shred skin, it looks rough, Until a stream of energy blasts fry the claw monsters. “Step away from our women” At the doorway stand EN SABAH NUR & AZAZEL.

    Issue 4 – The unconventional family head out of the safehouse, to meet the rest of the unsatisfied, Boom Boom. Jubilee, Emma Frost & Chamber. The resistance isn’t particularly large. EXPOSITION TIME. The heroes are unhappy as they are immune to Xavier’s telepathic attacks. He is Mind controlling the WORLD, placing them in a state of constant bliss. There is no hatred, bigotry, or violence in the world. Except for the now deceased claw gang of course. Why were they attacking? Odd. En Sabah Nur will not STAND for this. He accepted Xavier’s rule, as he thought he was strongest. He was duped. En Sabah Nur & Azazel think it’s time to take down Xavier’s corrupt world once and for all. The teenagers however, are less enthusiastic. Chamber has a face in this universe btw. He’s pretty hot. But he aint storming the whitehouse. Boom Boom thought the safehouse was just a place for dis-satisfied youths to go and moan. Jubilee thinks they should topple the man. Mystique, Nightcrawler, Rogue, Destiny, Jubilee, Azazel & Apocalypse teleport to a house. Whose house? XAVIER’S HOUSE.

    Issue 5 – Charles & Cassandra Xavier greet them with a cup of lapsang souchong and a smile. The Summers brothes and Jean Grey burst in to check everything is okay. They are told to leave. Except Jean. The professor explains hi viewpoint that he has saved billions of lives. Azazel raises his viewpoint that Free Will is important to life. Xavier says he’s not being realistic and that his hair is stupid. Mystique remains silent. After discussing the finer points of Xavier’s Machiavellian scheme, Apocalypse turns his fists into into hammers and tries to kill Xavier. Unfortunately, he is disintegrated by a flurry of laser beams. The team look up, and see Cyclops, Havok, Vulcan & The Sentry. Damn. Teleport flee! FLEE! Jubilee got left behind. The issue ends with a sad Hank McCoy watching everything in Xavier’s office. “Oh Charles, you ghoul”, or some other preachy thing.
    Issue 6 - The team recuperates from their losses at the safehouse until they hear a knock on the door. It’s beast! After he saw charles’ plan revealed, he gave himself an anti-telepathy hat, and fled the whitehouse. He explains the best way to topple Xavier is to destroy his power structure. Individually engaging his elite X-Men. Chamber is wary. Will this work? It sounds kinda like the old plan. He gives in. They suit up. Just before they leave, they get a knock on the door. It’s Legion.

    Issue 7 - Legion explains that Everything is his fault. He’s incoherent. He says lots of things like, don’t worry about Xavier. Burn. He is babbling, he gives everyone hats, and then takes them away, crazy! He reveals that he’s Xavier’s son. Azazel says he’d be good to bring along for emotional blackmail. Mystique says he’s a genius. Destiny foresees death. They port back to the house, Xavier laughs at them, until he sees Legion, he gets a nosebleeds and screams GET OUT OF MAH HEAD. Lots of psychic energy. Cassandra falls to the floor comatose. As does Xavier. Then in comes Jean Grey, who blasts Mystique away. “You couldn’t leave well enough alone could you?”

    Issue 8 – Jean Grey was in charge? Yes! She was mind controlling the Xavier siblings, splitting their power to take over the world. How evil. She sends the Summers attack force in to kill! Mystique, Chamber and Boom boom head them off whilst Beast and Rogue try to tackle his bodyguard Sage. Azazel & Nightcrawler engage the sentry, teleport baffling him. The heroes are winning! Sentry got teleported into the centre of the earth! Nightcrawler punched Cyclops in the face! Until jean grey shrieks and tk stops everyone. She shrieks blue murder, rips the heads off of Rogue, Chamber & Destiny and gets ready to kill everyone else. BLAM. Mystique with a handgun, back of Jean Grey’s head.

    Issue 9 – Cassandra , Charles and Legion mind meld. They all agree to restore things to how they were, even though they don’t know what it is Everyone who survived goes back to stop Cassandra from approaching Legion. She sees herself working with Xavier, is disgusted and leaves. ! Using Legion’s powers, they can meld into their selves from the original timeline, making everyone whole again, Hopefully. LIGHTS FRAZZLE FLASH. Everything is restored, or is it? Nightcrawler’s still there? He didn’t have anything to merge with, So Age of Xavier Nightcrawler is here to stay! With his mommy and daddy! Hurrah! Cassandra mind blasts everyone and walks out. This whole thing has given her an idea. . .

    Repercussions – Cassandra Nova is back with a plan
    Nightcrawler is back, with Mystique and Azazel as his partners.
    Xavier gets a lot darker.

    Tough T*tties



    Title: The Mutant Underground
    Books Involved: Uncanny X-Men, X-Men
    Major Characters: Omega Sentinel, Jean Grey, Bastion, Psylocke, Caliban, Cable, Marrow, and Cecilia Reyes

    Set Up
    During the events of Second Coming, Bastion secretly implanted a series of codes into Omega Sentinel’s mother board in case his plan was to fail that would give Bastion full control of Omega Sentinel’s body and short circuit her programming. However after being placed in a stasis tank, the Bastion programming calculates what their next move should be by coming to the decision- he must rewrite history. Bastion reboots Karima’s system and uses her body to steal the Science Team’s time traveling technology with intention of going back in time to the exact moment where he met his downfall. Bastrima goes back in time and dehabilitates S.H.I.E.L.D which allows for Bastion and his prime sentinels to succeed in killing Iceman and preventing Cecilia Reyes and Marrow from travelling to the X-Mansion. While at the mansion, the X-Men aren’t able to cut the bomb out of Cyclops’s abdomen in time which results in its explosion. In the explosion Cyclops, Wolverine, Storm, Maggott, Rogue, Beast, Joseph, Trish Tilby and Juggernaut perish along with every living thing within a three mile radius except Jean Grey and Cannonball. This action sparks anti-mutant sentiment and allows Operation Zero Tolerance to keep functioning on American Soil.

    Plot
    In present day America, Mutants are on the run- they are arrested on site and are not allowed to leave the country. Following the success of OZT, Bastion is in the final stages of getting the act signed in as a Global Decree so that he would be able to legally exterminate mutants across the globe. This has caused most mutants to go underground. Those who stand up against Bastion’s regime are put on the 198- a list of mutants who are branded as terrorist and killed on sight. To supercede American diplomacy, Captain Britain has formed an Underground Railroad, which uses the teleporters Psylocke (with her shadow powers), Daytripper, and Amelia Vought as the “conductors” to move mutants to safety in Europe as well as Marrow as a scout, Cecilia Reyes (known as Recovery) as a medic, and the Five-In-One as Central Intelligence.

    After her latest group of X-Men were placed on the 198 and murdered, Jean Grey has given up hope and taken refuge with the Underground Railroad. But while waiting for deportation, the Under Ground Railroad facility is attacked after being betrayed by Esme Cuckoo by a force of Prime Sentinels being led by Bastrima. In the mass hysteria, a group of mutants come together to protect the mutants and fend off the sentinels including Jean Grey, Agni (Neal Shaara), Cecilia Reyes, Marrow, and Psylocke. In the fight, Neal recognizes Bastion/Karima and thinks that she is Karima, his former girlfriend he travelled to America with before his powers emerged. He tries to talk to her which begins to pull her human conscience to the forefront, sensing another personality present, Jean uses her mental abilities to give Karima domain over herself. Psylocke instinctively teleports the group to the rubble of the X-Mansion, which sits in the middle of a deserted wasteland.

    Under threat from Jean, Omega Sentinel explains how the 616 is supposed to be. During interrogation Cable and Caliban emerge from the rubble and explain how they have been living underneath the X-Mansion for months while forming a rebel army to oppose Bastion’s forces. Jean convinces the others to travel to Bastion’s headquarters to revert the timeline, under the guise that they will over throw Bastion’s regime. As such the group takes out on a trek to Cape Canaveral to defeat Bastion gaining supporters along the way.

    The makeshift X-Men make their way to Bastion’s Headquarters in Cape Canaveral,
    Where Cable uses his dormant psychic abilities to send out a broadcast to his rebel forces to converge on Cape Canaveral via mass teleportation from the Dyson Sphere for one final strike on Bastion while Jean Grey, Psylocke, and Omega Sentinel teleport inside the facilities. When the trio has made its way to the inner sanctum holding the technology, the trio is confronted by Bastion who attempts to destroy Omega Sentinel before they can travel back in time. On the outside Neal is confronted by this realms version of Omega Sentinel who engages in a fight to the end. Back on the inside Bastion succeeds in killing Psylocke. Sensing looming failure, Jean Grey decides to give everyone a chance at life (specifically Scott) and sacrifices herself to Bastion. Her death emits a burst of the Phoenix Force that activates the time travelling technology and shuffles Omega Sentinel back into the normal 616 continuity while destroying her own reality.

    Repercussions:
    Karima is imbued with the final Phoenix force fragment Jean needs to return.
    Certain mutants retain some of their memories from the timeline and begin to question Cyclops authority for allowing Omega Sentinel to stay on Utopia even with her dormant Bastion programming.

    Second Chances



    Titles Involved: X-Men- Legacy, Uncanny X-men

    Set-Up:

    AKA Part 1- X-Men: Legacy- Madison Jeffries is observing and slowly working on re-building Karima Shapandar. Upon orders from his fellow science clubbers, nanites were injected in her body and her seperated head to block out the sentinel programming that was controlling her. While fixing her body, Karima's head awakens, where her robotic hand then starts to choke Madison Jeffries. Out of instinct, he disassembles her, her parts spreading across the room; big mistake for him!

    The sentinel programming took over the nanites itself, the nanites only reinforcing their hold on Karima. The nanites reform her body and she begins to infect all of Utopia's electronics, turning Utopia into a prison. Warlock attacks Karima, trying to infect her with the technarch virus, only for it to mutate upon contact with Karima. She then uses it against him and takes control of him.

    Hacked into the communication systems along with Warlock, Karima then uses the resources at hand and calls upon a Wild Sentinel. Utopia is no more and the mutant population is now virtually non-existant as the Sentinel wipes out the entire island.

    Plot:

    Part 2- Uncanny X-Men- Wandering the desolate waste-land known as future, Bishop knows he should be dead by now. It's been months since he's seen anything, but something catches his eye. He rushes over to it, feeling the energy within it. After placing his hands on the cocoon-like structure, he draws as much energy from it as he can before it deconstructs back into Danger, within, Tempo.

    A spotlight shines them, it's a Wild Sentinel. It lands, emerging from it a Shi'ar girl named Val'yria, who reveals the moment the X-Men were destroyed, the Phoenix manifested and fed on Earth, moving to the Shi'ar next. The survivors from both societies became one and resided where the Inhumans once lived, their leader, the Golden one. Bishop is taken to him and sees it's Elixir, withered and aged.

    Part 3- X-Men: Legacy- Bishop learns from Tempo and Danger that Hope resided on Utopia while he was gone. It is also learned the two survived as when Utopia was engulfed, Tempo froze time around to the point she remained froze indefinitely. Danger being nearby formed a protective shell around her, the temporal field freezing her as well.

    Elixir revealed after Necrosha, he came upon another sleeping Wild Sentinel and lived in it, only for it to awaken while he was inside. It was too late for him to do anything. He eventually gained control of the Sentinel and carried the survivors of the Phoenix to the the blue area of the moon. He says Bishop can redeem himself and heals his right eye. He leaves his arm as one was built, his return anticipated in advance. Elixir, old and withered sends Bishop, Danger, Tempo, and Val'yria to the present to stop the massacre. Upon arrival, the team sees the Wild Sentinel on the horizon, looming towards Utopia.

    Part 4- Uncanny X-men- Bishop learnes the arm given to him has no time machine, just a teleporter and teleports himself on to Utopia. Upon arrival, he is attacked by Uncanny X-Force. Bishop's goal, find and stop Omega Sentinel. Future Tempo freezes Uncanny X-Force temporarily, while Bishop, Val, and Danger make their way to the lower deck. He is bombarded.

    Val turns her feathers pink, granting her telepathy, and finds Omega Sentinel's mind, transferring it into Future-Danger's body. The Sentinel programming is still doing what it does, where Bishop then taps into the main power core, absorbing enough energy for him to blast a giant hole through the top of Utopia, and through the Sentinel, sending it crashing into the bay.


    Villains- Omega Sentinel, Wild Sentinel

    Heroes- Bishop, Danger, Tempo, Val'yria, Elixir, Madison Jeffries, Warlock, Hope Summers, Psylocke, Wolverine, Fantomex, Deadpool

    Repercussions:

    - X-Treme X-Men is reformed by Bishop, with Storm, Gambit, and Omega Sentinel amongst the ranks. Adam X guest stars in the first arc, just when you think things couldn't get any more F#%&*$! X-TREME! *Sips Mountain Dew*
    - Val'yria joins Generation Hope's ranks, forming a rivalry with Hope Summers. Being the daughter of Elixir and Deathbird, her powers involve her altering the color of her feathers, each color giving her a different power. Gold is her primary, slowing her aging process and granting her healing powers. She can only go one color at a time.
    - Future-Tempo joins the main cast of X-Men: Legacy, playing a more heroic role in the book.
    - Whether Elixir is dead or alive remains unknown.

    Cyclops is Fantastic

    Reality Unraveled
    featuring The X-Men, Fantastic Four and Avengers


    Main Books involved: Age of Mutants: Reality Unraveled (mini series), Uncanny X-Men, X-Men, Avengers, FF

    Major Characters: The FF, The X-Avengers, The X-Men, Masters of Humanity

    FF: Future Family - Mister Cyclops (Scott Summers), Marvel Woman (Jean Grey-Summers), Plazma (Alex Summers), and long time friend the Human Freeze (Bobby Drake)!

    The X-Avengers - Goddess (Ororo Munroe), Iron Angel (Warren Worthington), Justice, Monarch (Namor McKenzie), Colossus, Dazzler, Darkstar, Psylocke, and Sunfire

    The Brotherhood of X-Men - Magneto is the figurehead with his children each leading a squad of X-Men

    Squad A - Quicksilver, Exodus, Rogue, Unuscione, Petra, Sway, Cannonball, and Iceman
    Squad B - Scarlet Witch, Nightcrawler, Moonstar, Scanner, Forearm, Shadowcat, Blink. and Toad

    Masters of Humanity - Baron Rogers (Steve Rogers), Carnage (Peter Parker), Grimm Knight (Benjamin Grimm), Brute (Reed Richards), Particle Man (Hank Pym), Seductress (Jan Van Dyne), Reaper (Eric Williams), and Deathbird (Carol Danvers)

    Set-Up: Temporal Disturbances? Reality changing? Hope receiving death threats? Legion has disappeared! What does all this have in common? Someone is traveling back and forth in time. The FF, X-Men and Avengers are greeted by a returning Bishop! Bishop is not here as an enemy, and warns them of the next target .... Franklin Richards! Before they can react it's too late and he's disappeared. Reality is being replaced and a new time-line is created.

    Mutants are loved and accepted, and even worshiped by some. Mutants stand side by side with regular humans as equals. When the Kree armada invaded seeking to conquer Earth, they were fought off by groups of mutants. However any powered non-mutant humans are branded fakes, outcasts and unworthy. Regardless of their scientific discoveries Reed Richards and Hank Pym are not mutants so they are frauds and unrecognized. When Steve Rogers is found and unfrozen he's deemed a failed experiment and exiled. Nobody wants a hero from a "drug", mutants are natural and can do the job better.

    Plot:

    Originally just a group of college friends, the Future Family have stuck together as family, friends and adventurers to aid mutant and human kind alike. Mister Cyclops went on to become an adept mechanic and inventor utilizing jet packs, hover cars and even flame throwers! Scott and Alex were raised in a kind and loving environment by their father Nathan and mother Catherine. Scott mastered his powers, while Alex had an accident and part of his body became plasma permanently. While Bobby throughout the years remained the wisecracking, cool friend. Scott and long time lover Jean later married and had two children Nathan and Rachel. A confused and lost Anole is found by Nathan and Rachel. Before Anole can make new friends he is kidnapped by a new enemy known only as Doctor Blue! The FF mount a rescue effort to save Anole and find out how he is effecting reality!

    The X-Avengers are a band of heroes formed together to combat the Kree invasion and stuck together to protect and serve, but now they have a new problem. The Masters of Humanity are powered humans disenfranchised by their treatment as fakes and outcasts. They decide if humanity won't accept them, they will make them accept them by ruling them. They attack pro mutant groups The Purifiers, The Friends of Mutantkind, and The Church of Mutant Rights. This is however a trap and The Masters of Humanity capture and escape with Psylocke who has memories of another world.

    With mutants not being feared or hated, Magneto was able to lead a peaceful and quiet life with his wife Magda and his children Wanda and Pietro. Later they opened a school to help teach and educate young mutants so they can use their powers for the good of society. Magneto and his X-Men get a distress call from "The Danger Room", a highly advanced prison designed to keep the most dangerous mutants contained in a holographic environment. The Grey King and his own X-Men group (Crux, Rapture, Landslide, Darwin, and Chaos) were guarding but are attacked by forces of Apocalypse. What happens when the most dangerous mutant criminals Xavier (imprisoned for mind wiping his half brother, erasing the minds of many humans and abusing his mental powers at will), Wolverine (life sentence for his disregard for life and kill first attitude, thousands of murders), and Madrox (imprisoned for unknown reasons) are released?

    The finale! The FF, X-Vengers and Brotherhood of X-Men all track their leads down, which takes them to one place! What awaits them at the Holy Temple of Lord Apocalypse? Much to their surprise as they get there the followers of Apocalypse are already slaughtered by The Masters of Humanity. Our heroes must defeat The MoH, along with the escaped Wolverine and Xavier to get to their leader .... Doctor Blue! After freeing Psylocke, she is able to reveal the truth and reveal this reality shouldn't exist. Doctor Blue is actually Beast from the main 616 reality who traveled back in time and was using Legion, and Franklin Richards to create a new world for mutants after he felt Cyclops and Hope were going to ruin mutantkind and they disrespected him! Franklin and Legion are freed and able to restore the proper time line.

    Repercussions:
    • Psylocke keeps her original British body she got back in the alternate reality!
    • Beast is EVIL. The X-Men replace him with Dark Beast who doesn't seem so bad in contrast now.
    • Alternate reality Wolverine killed and ate Anole, apparently he tasted like chicken. Anole is dead in both realities.
    • Bishop is back! and not so evil. he still hates Hope though.
    • Cerebro's X-Men are back and real this time!
    • Cyclops is much more fantastic!

    The Ponies are too cute. #1 alternate reality. I didn't vote for the ones that focused too much on Cyclops or had some lame-o Anole death.

    I voted for Perkynipz because of the Tempo inclusion.

    The Dazzler pony is amazing though.

    Charles & Cassandra Xavier greet them with a cup of lapsang souchong and a smile.
    It's a shame I can only imagine them sitting carelessly in White House, drawn by Coipel. How I would savour that splash page, again and again...

    Ferocia delivered all that I liked and more: House of X with Raven's family as protagonists. And what a twist in issue 7!

    Outback served high-octane Bond classic with Emma as a Bond girl. And Banshee as a mobster. Everything molded perfectly with 60's frame.

    Milkmouse has realistic and gritty story in it's tiny hands. I was on the edge of the seat entire time. I want to see Bastion's adorable hounds.
