Age of X-Man: The X-Tremists #2



"This miniseries is also gonna hurt. It’s a difficult story to tell by nature, because of the role Department X was assigned in this utopian society without their choosing. They didn’t sign up for this, and X-Tremists is about the consequences of trying to force heroes into a reality they would never consciously comply with. X-Tremists is not about reveling in erasure, it’s about doing justice to how violently relieved Bobby’s gonna feel when he finally wakes up in this alternate reality and the kind of ice-cold anger he’d have once he sees that not only did Nate Grey put him on the secret police, but imagined an armband on him." -- Leah Williams

Age of X-Man: Apocalypse and The X-Tracts #1

 

"I suddenly had this fully formed vision of a militant '60s X-Men team... like the Weather Underground meets Doom Patrol. Hippie, beatnik superhero revolutionaries. When I decided Apocalypse was going to be a combination of Professor X and Andy Warhol, I knew I had my in, and finally a use for my years of Art History college classes." -- Tim Seeley

Solicit for Age of X-Man: The Amazing Nightcrawler #4

You know how at the end of every "event", everything goes back to the way it was, but there's ONE thing which remains leftover?

"Necrosha" restored Doug Ramsey to life and unlike all the other reanimated corpses, stayed alive. (Yay!)

"Age of Apocalypse" gave us X-Man and... ummm... Holocaust and err.... Sugar Man! (Yay?)

"Deadly Genesis"gave us Vulcan... which really isn't helping my case is it... but never mind.

So PLEASE "Age of X-Man", if you have to keep one thing, please let it be this #4 reveals that....

Age of X-Man: The Marvelous X-Men #1

 

"This is not what you think it is. This is not a rehashing of the Age of Apocalypse. This is something else altogether. It’s a utopia. It’s the quiet American Dream come true for the X-Men and thus a world and lifestyle that has never been explored for mutants in the past. But there’s a lurking darkness beneath. We’re harkening back to classic dystopian fiction like Orwell, Bradbury, and Huxley, but this time it’s less oppressive and tackling contemporary issues. We’re slowing things down a bit, keeping it eerie, before stoking the flames again in order to explore who these characters become when they are allowed to be individuals, when they are allowed to be exactly who they want to be without fear of repercussion or persecution." -- Lonnie Nadler

"This book is about a different kind of oppression. It’s about exploring what you become when you’re faced to ask hard questions about what you’d do to keep the peace. It’s about tackling the age old X-Men theme of what it means to be an outsider with a modern subversive twist. Age of X-Man is about exploring what mutants become after they win a battle they’ve been fighting for their entire lives." -- Zac Thompson

Age of X-Man: Alpha #1



“It’s not a dystopia, it’s actually the opposite. It’s ‘What do we do after we’ve won?’ What is the X-Men’s purpose when they’re all united and they’ve beat hate?” -- Zac Thompson
