The ComicsVerse Podcast team has assembled to bring you, the listener, an in-depth discussion on the X-Men crossover, “Age of Apocalypse,” just in time for the upcoming film, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, due out on May 27th.

Age of Apocalypse Spoiler and Cuss Warning

The combined forces of Justin and Chris may have broken the ComicsVerse record for profanities used on a podcast. It could even be suggested that using the variety of colorful words they do might make a sailor uncomfortable. One could, in theory, turn it into a drinking game. As a result, there’s plenty of material here with which to work.

X-Men: Age of Apocalypse – The Podcast

The ComicsVerse crew covers the entire run of the 1995–1996 crossover. We provide everything from summaries of this nine-title event to an exploration of the deeper themes and tropes present in “Age of Apocalypse.”

Age of Apocalypse Begins with Legion’s Quest

The story itself begins when Professor X’s son, Legion, goes back in time and kills Magneto, believing it was the only way to actually achieve his father’s dream of peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans. His trip, though, is ill-fated: Instead of killing Magneto, he kills his father, which (in true X-Men fashion) completely misplaces and changes the original timeline and the lives of our favorite mutants, as well as the entire Marvel landscape.

X-Men: Age of Apocalypse Breaks New Ground

This complete reversal of the original X-Men timeline creates a post-apocalyptic world, brought on by none other than Apocalypse himself. This new timeline radically changes the landscape of the prominent characters of the time. Due to this, Cyclops and Beast emerge as villains. Magneto subsequently becomes a hero and the leader of the X-Men (on top of being Rogue’s husband). Most of the other Marvel heroes, like Spider-Man, are dead, while others, like Carol Danvers, never receive their powers. “Age of Apocalypse” completely changed the status quo of Marvel storytelling at the time.

In conclusion, what are you waiting for? Finally press that “play” button and listen in for what should be an incredibly entertaining podcast! We hope you enjoy!
