Astonishing X-Men | Comics
In the wake of the eternal mutant Apocalypse’s rise in power and the untimely death of professor Charles Xavier, Magneto, now head of the X-Men in this newly altered dystopian timeline has taken charge, assembles his team of the gifted mutants, whom are now the potential threat for the ruler of the world, Apocalypse. While discussing their mission with his team, he is joined by Blink and Sunfire, who came through a portal after being chased by Apocalypse’s minion Delgado. They inform the X-Men about Apocalypse's latest culling of the humans, led by his son and one of his Horseman – Holocaust.

A loyal mutant follower of Apocalypse has brought him the news of Delgado’s failed attempt to apprehend the two X-Men members but the tyrant himself smiles about it. After bidding Gambit goodbye to his own separate mission, Rogue, along with Blink, Sabretooth, Morph and Wild Child sets off for Chicago to face the deadly horseman Holocaust. Sabretooth personally wants to settle some old score with the Horseman of Apocalypse. When they met him, Sabretooth quickly engages in a fierce battle with Holocaust and their fight creates mayhem in the battlefield. Just as they are trying to fight off the forces of Apocalypse, the tyrant himself is also seeking to meet the X-Men personally for purpose unknown.

Astonishing X-Men (Softcover)

Released from Marvel Comics in 1995, the four issue limited series of Astonishing X-Men served as one of the core stories for the then ongoing crossover event "Age of Apocalypse" that drafted the foundation for the “Onslaught Saga” afterwards. Writer Scott Lobdell and fan favourite superstar artist Joe Madureira pitched up this storyline that is set in an alternate reality of Earth-295. It was a different take on the classic Uncanny X-Men series and Joe Mad delivered one of his finest artworks as usual.
