I... haven't been following. Dare I ask what's going on?

Yeah, this is a really dense issue that depends upon the reader having been following Uncanny X-Force up until now, and as such a few pages aren't going to really make much sense.

Short version: back in the AoA, their version of Wolverine has become the new host body for Apocalypse. He's besieging the final holdout of humanity with a bunch of superhuman shock troops, there are almost no X-Men left alive, and Magneto and Rogue go down fighting to try to buy time for one last Hail Mary pass.

It's a trailer for the Age of Apocalypse ongoing.

..wait, there's going to be an ongoing? I thought the Age of Apocalypse had finally gotten a semblance of peace sometime as seen in Exiles? Ah well.

The last twelve issues or so of Uncanny X-Force has taken place in the AOA world for the Dark Angel Saga, and there's a book written by David Lapham coming out based on what happens next.

Hang on, so this is a Point One, but isn't even vaguely intended as a jumping on point? *boggle* That's even weirder than having what would otherwise be sensible standalone jumping-on points positioned during story arcs (as Thor/JiM did twice last year).

Oh, it's a jumping-on point. It's just not for this book.

I agree that it's deeply weird.

Is there a reason that Magneto's powers don't work directly on him, given all the metal scaffolding?

Or that Rogue is unable to drain his powers, considering she was able to do as much to Thor in her first appearance?

AoA Magneto is considerably less powerful due to injuries he's suffered in the past, IIRC, and to be absolutely fair, he does try to crush Logan's skeleton in on itself right before Logan kills him. Even the full-power Magneto from 616 had to really go out of his way to affect adamantium.

Rogue's power drain has a tendency to hilariously backlash when she uses it on certain people, and not everyone immediately gets stunned or goes unconscious. The last time she tried draining Juggernaut's powers, for example, he kept pounding on her the entire time and was never knocked out. There's precedent for somebody on Apocalypse's level being able to resist it, even if he didn't come prepared with some manner of Celestial gadget.
