Age of Apocalypse | Comics

The eternal evil mutant En Sabah Nur AKA Apocalypse has always been watching over the world to conquer it when the time to strike is right and as he observes this unexpected incident, he deems it as a perfect moment to start his agenda of ruling the world by conquering it all. Alongside his wife Rogue, Magneto assembles the team of Astonishing X-Men, his rebellion mutant army against the tyrant's genocidal campaign "culling", where many were slain.

Instead of all the effort, Apocalypse has conquered entire North America and hunted down all mutants with potent telepathic or chronal abilities, as well as other super-heroes to assure the durability of his evil reign. It's a timeline that is full of chaos, abnormalities and madness all over it, as it is ruled by the one who is the malevolent mutant Apocalypse himself.

While Nightcrawler was leding the X-Calibre team to locate Destiny, he came across Callisto, Juggernaut, his mother Mystique and Thunderbird of this reality. To retrieve a piece of M'Kraan Crystal that controls over time and dimensions, Gambit and the X-Ternals travels to space. Colossus and Shadowcat are a married couple who trains a group of young mutants from the original Generation X, who call themselves Generation Next.

Blink, Morph, Sabretooth, Sunfire and Wild Child fought Apocalypse's son Holocaust under Magneto's command to stop the "cullings". Logan carries out his own missions as Weapon X, along with his lover Jean Grey for the Human High Council. Allegedly born from Cyclops' and Jean Grey's DNA, a new and powerful mutant Nate Gray AKA X-Man makes his presence known as the world's most powerful telekinetic.

Blink | Comics
A mutant with purple skin and the power of teleportation, Clarice Ferguson was orphaned as a child by evil geneticist Mister Sinister and is saved later by feral mutant Sabretooth. Clarice adopts Blink as her code name and joined the ranks of X-Men in the Age of Apocalypse reality. This young mutant was berated by leader of the X-Men; Magneto for her carelessness and disobedient attitude after she put Impossible Man out of his misery in Dark Beast's lab. She reached the place where Holocaust; Horseman of Apocalypse and Blastaar; ruler of Negative Zone were battling. Having an idea to convince Blastaar to help them fight against the eternal mutant Apocalypse, She easily escaped from patrolling probes and slipped through Blastaar's portal to the zone.

Blink reached to Negative Zone but also lost most of her memories as her journey through the portal to this dimension wiped it out. On Negative Zone, she met a brave rebel freedom fighter named Ahmyor, who plans to usurp Blastaar from his throne and restore Annihilus as the rightful ruler. But these two are soon captured by Blastaar’s army in one of their failed escape attempt. At some point, it is revealed to Blink by Blastaar that Blink's newly found love interest Ahmyor is not what he seems and he is none other than a de-evolved version of the malicious being known as Annihilus and what deadly threats he poses in the future for the people on Earth and cosmos as well. Of all people, Ahmyor doesn't even know what scale of destruction he's about to bring upon the galaxy.

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.

Due to his “Red Eyes” at childhood, Remy LeBeau was abandoned as an infant but later adopted by the Thieves’ Guild who dubbed him “The White Devil”.

Later he left the guild and learned to use his kinetic mutant energy through various objects; mostly playing cards.

Gambit | Comics

Even after years of practice Remy still had trouble controlling his vast powers and he sought the aid of the geneticist Mister Sinister to help him up. With Gambit in the lead, Sinister formed The Marauders and orchestrated the “Mutant Massacre” on the Morlocks. His attempt to stop them proved fruitless and he barely survived from the feral mutant Sabretooth, along with a young Marrow.

Gambit joined the ranks of X-Men with the help of the then powerless Storm. There he met fellow mutant Rogue and they both fell in love. Later, Magneto held him on a mock-trial for his role in the infamous Morlock Massacre and soon Remy is met by his counterpart New Sun from another dimension, who came to destroy him.

When X-Man Bishop traveled to present from the future, he recognized Gambit as the fabled witness of the “Onslaught” event. Remy was tricked by the eternal mutant Apocalypse and become his Horseman of Death. Eventually he battled his former teammates and moved to Sinister’s Marauders with Sunfire. During Messiah CompleX, Wolverine stabbed him to learn Cable’s location and Remy left Sinister to retrieve Xavier’s recently deceased body.

Mutant Massacre | Comics

A young mutant named Tommy and her boyfriend Richard Salmons of Hellfire Club were chased in Los Angeles, California by a mysterious group of hostile mutants who goes by the name Marauders. It appears that the Marauders were only looking for an underground group of mutants who call themselves The Morlocks.

Tommy is then killed by the Marauder named Scalphunter after Richard was taken down on a train yard and upon finding out the secret hideout of the Morlocks, The Marauders unleashed a massive carnage and slew hundreds of innocent mutants mercilessly. After witnessing such horror, Gambit who were leading one of the Marauders team under the order of Mister Sinister to the sewers unaware of their true intentions, fled with a mutant child who would later be known as Marrow.

X Men – Mutant Massacre | Comics

On response to a call for help, the team of X-Factor and X-Men reaches the spot separately to battle The Marauders and help the remaining Morlocks alive. Angel of the X-Factor got pinned to the wall by Harpoon, leading to the amputation of his wings later. Trying to save RogueShadowcat got stuck in her phase form after being attacked by Harpoon. Nightcrawler and Colossus also got heavily injured by Riptide.

What came up next is a legendary battle between two feral mutants of Marvel Universe; Wolverine and Sabretooth when the former was wandering inside the tunnels looking for survivors. These two animals tore each other apart as they could in the heat of the situation. They went on to a second round but Wolverine left the fight to save the life of a Morlock. Sabretooth even reached to X-Mansion secretly and destroys Cerebro but there he was confronted by Psylocke before Wolverine could arrive and she took the fight outside so that Victor Creed couldn't hurt any other students.

The vigilante hero Daredevil and The Mighty Thor have also crossed paths with The Marauders during this massive slaughterous event. Thor's intervention is the only reason why X-Factor got out of the mess with minimum causalities on their rank and he later cleanse the sewer of the dead with his power, which also causes some to believe that Power Pack has also perished within.

Considered as one of the top notch Marvel Comics crossover, "Mutant Massacre" is a major crossover that took place in 1986. The creative team of the events is writer Chris Claremont (Captain Britain, Contest of Champions II), who is famous for his run on Uncanny X-Men, Louise and Walter Simonson (Alien – The Illustrated Story, Star Wars). When Chris Claremont came up with the idea of the story then Walter Simonson suggested him to make the plot a crossover of the then three major monthly series so that it will not be overlong for the readers.
