X-MEN: APOCALYPSE WARS (2016) | Complete Event Reading Order


Official Synopsis

Apocalypse Wars consists of three thematic story arcs, each telling the story of a different X-Men team facing Earth's first mutant.

EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN opens the event when our heroes jettison mutantkind's last hope into the timestream to keep it safe - only for Apocalypse to find it. Now the X-Men must travel into the future to set things right, not realizing a horrible surprise awaits them on the other side.

UNCANNY X-MEN - There is something wrong with Archangel. Aim him at his target and he will destroy. Beyond that, he is little more than a lifeless drone. And it’s time Psylocke got to the bottom of why. What really happened to put him in this state? Only one thing’s for sure: her quest to uncover the truth will lead to a lot more than she bargained for…

ALL-NEW X-MEN - As the young X-Men strive to shirk the legacies left to them by their older counterparts, they’ll crash headlong into Apocalypse Wars! Their uncertain future hangs heaviest on young Evan – also known as Kid Apocalypse. Is he destined to become a genocidal madman like his namesake? Or will he rise above? He will be tested like never before, and truth will shock you!
