This year’s slew of What If? comics looks to the near past and presents a new take on some of the greatest stories to come through Marvel in the past several years. The first offering, What If? Avengers Disassembled, gave fans a new ending to that milestone story in Avengers history. The response from fans has been great and the issue has sold out at Diamond.
Another popular event to get the What If? treatment is “Age of Apocalypse,” where we ask: what if Legion had not only killed his father, Professor X, but Magneto as well? In What If? X-Men Age of Apocalypse, the X-Men are left leaderless and Apocalypse seizes the opportunity to take control of the world.
He does not stand unopposed though, as a small group of Earth’s remaining heroes, led by Nate Summers, take the fight to Apocalypse in an attempt to undo this twisted reality.
If you thought the original Age of Apocalypse was a bleak world, see just how dire a world would be without Xavier and Magneto in What If? X-Men Age of Apocalypse.
Marvel does not plan on going back to press on What If? Avengers Disassembled, but retailers are advised to check their orders on the other upcoming What If? one-shots, including What If? X-Men Age of Apocalypse.
