ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 71: X-Men’s AGE OF APOCALYPSE

The ComicsVerse Podcast team has assembled to bring you, the listener, an in-depth discussion on the X-Men crossover, “Age of Apocalypse,” just in time for the upcoming film, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, due out on May 27th.

Be warned: The combined forces of Justin and Chris may have broken the ComicsVerse all-time record for profanities used on a podcast. It could even be suggested that, using the variety of colorful words that would make a Sailor uncomfortable, one could in theory, turn it into a drinking game. There’s plenty of material to work with.

LISTEN: Director Josh Boone is set to direct the next X-Men spinoff film — NEW MUTANTS! Hear to the podcast all about the comic series!

The ComicsVerse crew covers the entire run of the 1995–1996 crossover, providing everything from summaries of this nine-title event to an exploration of the deeper themes and tropes “Age of Apocalypse” provides.

The story itself begins when Professor X’s son, Legion, goes back in time and kills Magneto, believing it was the only way to truly achieve his father’s dream of peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans. His trip, though, is ill-fated: Instead of killing Magneto, he kills his father, which (in true X-Men fashion) completely misplaces and changes the original timeline and the lives of our favorite mutants, as well as the entire Marvel landscape.

HEAR: If you’re an X-Men fan, we have a podcast all about Storm!

This complete reversal of the original X-Men timeline creates a post-apocalyptic world, brought on by none other than Apocalypse himself. This new timeline completely changes the landscape of the prominent characters of the time: Cyclops and Beast emerge as villains and Magneto as a hero and the leader of the X-Men (on top of being Rogue’s husband). Most of the other Marvel heroes, like Spider-Man, are dead, while others, like Carol Danvers, never receive their powers. “Age of Apocalypse” completely changed the status quo of Marvel characters at the time.

So what are you waiting for? Press that “play” button and listen in for what should be an extremely entertaining podcast! We hope you enjoy!

For your convenience, the ComicsVerse Podcast is also available on iHeartRadio, SoundCloud, Spreaker, and iTunes!
