Onslaught Saga | Comics

Professor Charles Xavier and his team of X-Men have previously faced Magneto in his space station Avalon to stop his reign of terror (Fatal Attraction) and during the battle against the master of magnetism and his Acolytes, Magneto extracted the Adamantium from Wolverine's body after being stabbed by him, which left the latter in a withered and dying state. Seeing this, an enraged Xavier immediately attacks Magneto and wiped out his mind, left him in a catatonic state.

Unknowingly, Charles also absorbed the dark essence of Magneto's mind while attacking him, which subconsciously merged with Xavier's consciousness and creates a very powerful psionic entity called Onslaught. Xavier's decades of frustration over the events with mutants made Onslaught take an attempt to forcibly establish his year-old dream of mutant/human peaceful co-existence.

At first, Onslaught wanted to establish Xavier's dreams through the means that Magneto used. However, he later decided to destroy all humans too anyway. He approached X-Men's former nemesis, Juggernaut but upon denial, he tore out the crimson Gem of Cyttorak from Cain Marko and left him beaten. Then Jean Grey was approached by the being to join his cause but she refused the offer too.

Onslaught also tried to recruit Xavier's X-Men to fight against humans but upon denial, he attacked them all and both parties engaged in a fight. It was when Wolverine noted that he looked more like Magneto after Onslaught pretends to be Xavier himself, the monster loose his cool and attacked the team. Onslaught now reveals his true form to the X-Men and claims that he and Xavier are one.

During their fight, Bishop absorbs a huge blast of psionic energy thrown at the X-Men from Onslaught to save his friends, while Cannonball, Cyclops, Gambit, Iceman, Phoenix, Storm and Wolverine continues the fight. Onslaught then abducts the powerful mutant child Franklin Richards of Mister Fantastic and Invisible Woman by posing as a little boy named Charles. Cable's time-displaced brother Nate Grey AKA X-Man was also taken down to have more psionic power from him for himself.

Amidst this chaos, Ozymandias awakens his master Apocalypse who joins Uatu the Watcher in witnessing the end of the "Age of Wonders". The team of Fantastic Four, Avengers, an enraged Hulk and even the villainous Doctor Doom came forward to oppose Onslaught's threat to existence. Together, The Avengers and X-Men formed an alliance against the greatest threat which the world has ever seen but probably all of them will not be able to see the end of it.

To Survive an Onslaught

Various other writers and artists have contributed in this historical Marvel event. Among them, Mark Waid's plot was something that actually stayed faithful to the core event that nearly shattered the entire Marvel universe. The drawings of Andy Kubert in the second ongoing volume of X-Men and Joe Madureira (Avenging Spider-Man – My Friends Can Beat Up Your Friends, Deadpool – The Circle Chase)'s work in Uncanny X-Men are most magnificent.

X-Men | Comics

As an evolved species of Homo Sapiens, Mutants are people with uncanny abilities because of the presence of an extraordinary X-Gene they carry and are feared by humans in general. But there was a man with the dream of a peaceful co-existence between humans and mutants, who wanted to change the misconception that “Mutants are a threat for Humanity”.

So, that man, Professor Charles Xavier gathered a group of young mutants with great potentials to form a team called X-Men to stand for his vision and will try and protect the world from any disasters that comes forth. He also created a safe heaven for the gifted youngsters at his mansion in Westchester County, New York.

The group of X-Men started with Professor XCyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Iceman and Beast. Later, as replacement and a rescue unit for his original team, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Banshee, Storm, Sunfire, Colossus and Thunderbird were recruited in by Xavier.

In the later years, they fought the mutant master of magnetism; Magneto, Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, Juggernaut, the mutant-hunting Sentinels, an eternal mutant known as Apocalypse, the psionic being Onslaught, even the Latverian tyrant Doctor Doom and many more.

As they have took part in the events like Deadly Genesis, Phoenix Saga, Days of Future Past, Fall of the Mutants, Muir Island Saga, X-Tinction Agenda, Mutant Genesis, Legion Quest and DecimationXavier's X-Men stands for the symbol of good mutants who fights for the welfare of both humanity and their own kind.
