aoa1-cover-posterjt-128007

Many of you comic fans will remember the famous X-Men storyline, Age of Apocalypse. Like with many of their famous storylines from the past are returning in the upcoming Secret Wars series. Writer Fabien Nicieza will take us back to the world where Professor Xavier never formed the X-Men.

Although it will not follow-up the original story, like we have seen from many of thise Secret Wars tie-ins, the plot of the series will follow the X-Men’s search for a Cypher that would be able to bring down Apocalypse.

“So anyway, the Secret Wars Age of Apocalypse is, in nearly all ways, an even WORSE world than the original – if you happen to be human or an X-Man!” he tells IGN. “Both humans and the X-Men are in a far more compromised, desperate state of existence and time is running out for both of them.”

“Cypher not only interprets language, he can also discern meaning and intent behind what is said,” Nicieza explains. “In their desperate attempt to save themselves and possibly prevent a greater war across Battleworld, Magneto’s X-Men need Cypher to expose the true plans of both the desperate human faction led by Peter Borbeau and Carol Danvers and Apocalypse.”

The new series will drop in July and you can check out the solicitation for the first two issues below, as well as the artwork.
