Marvel Teases Return of Age of Apocalypse for Summer 2015
With the supervillain Apocalypse headlining the next X-Men movie, Marvel is capitalizing on that buzz Civil War-style by bringing back the popular crossover series Age of Apocalypse in the summer of 2015.
Age of Apocalypse takes place in an alternate timeline that, at times, has had an effect on the mainstream Marvel Universe. In the series, Legion travels back in time to kill Magneto, but Xavier sacrifices himself to save him. As a result, Magneto takes up the mantle of peacekeeper between mutants and humans, and Apocalypse institutes a genocidal policy towards humans in order to render mutants the "ruling class."
Marvel has teased several other exciting covers for summer 2015, including Civil War, Planet Hulk, Armor Wars, Years of Future Past, Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies, Old Man Logan, Infinity Gauntlet, Attilan Rising, Ultimate: The End, and House of M.
