Age of X-Man: Alpha #1 Spoilers

Spoilers: Mutantkind is no longer an endangered species. Professor Charles Xavier’s dream was realised. The Marvellous X-Men spend their time tackling issues caused by new mutants coming into their own. Everyone is a mutant. On the first day of the Age of X-Man (known as The Resolution), everyone became a mutant, leading to massive “natural” disasters worldwide, which led to the new world order. The Summers Institute, raising mutants as they learn and adjust to their powers when they kick in, feeds the world. Procreation is now no longer an individual matter. People are born in hatcheries and celebrate “hatchdays”. Unapproved romantic encounters are forbidden against some kind of guiding principles and could be the ultimate rebellion–until they are mind-wiped away. That's where Department X comes in. The law enforcers of the Age of X-Man are tasked with aprehending and mind-wiping anyone violating the anti-relationship law. Psylocke, Moneta and Iceman excommunicate Bishop for engaging in a forbidden affair with Jean Grey.

Uncanny X-Men #10 Art

Uncanny X-Men #10 Spoilers

Spoilers: Jean Grey enlists the help of all X-Men against Nate Grey and his Horsemen. Cannonball attempts to blasts his way to X-Man, but is badly injured instead. Pixie teleports Sam out and returns to the battle field. The Horsemen of Salvation overpower the X-Men easily. Jeans asks for the help of Psylocke, Sage, Cuckoos and No-Girl so they can combine forces. Betsy wants to break X-Man’s hold on Storm before she joins the telepaths. Jean and the psychics form a perimeter around Nate and focus on combining their powers. Meanwhile, Psylocke has Angel bring her to Storm, where Betsy strikes Ororo with her psychic sword. Storm is freed from X-Man’s control, and Angel saves both women before they fall to the ground. Storm is enraged about the violation of her mind and strikes a powerful lightning on Nate Grey. Psylocke joins the telepaths, and together, they manage to split Nate from Legion. However, Jean finds herself trapped inside Nate’s mind. Jean tries to reason with Nate once more and speaks of her own actions as Phoenix and all the pain she has caused, the same he is doing now. This overpowers Nate Grey, who loses his hold on his Horsemen. Magneto, Blob and Omega Red all come to their senses. Nate explains to Jean that he’s dying and wanted to do something good as his last act. He came across a life seed, which essentially increased his powers. Nate concludes that he can’t save the world when the X-Men always stand on his way. X-Man bids farewell, and suddenly, all the X-Men are gone. Nobody knew what happened, but the world returned to the way it once was. And the world celebrated the death of the X-Men. The anti-mutant vaccine was put into immediate circulation. The world was done with mutants. And Cyclops was there to witness the fall of mutantkind.

Next: Enter the Age of X-Man.

Uncanny X-Men #9 Art

Uncanny X-Men #9 Spoilers

Spoilers: An enraged Nate Grey appears before the X-Men after merging with Legion. Nate rallies his Horsemen against the X-Men, killing Multiple Man, who turned out to be a dupe, and converting Storm into a Horseman in the process. Psylocke attempts to fight Nate head on but is overwhelmed. Jean makes sure Betsy is okay and realizes they are outpowered, hence she sends a telepathic message to every other X-Men out there calling for help. Nate Grey is preventing Pixie from teleporting the others, so Armor volunteers to distract him. Armor takes Rockslide and Glob inside her shield and absorbs the four Horsemen into her armor. Meanwhile Psylocke, Bishop and the others focus on Nate, attacking him at once. Back at the Institute, Beast confronts Anole, who admits he has stolen the vaccine to give mutants a chance of not becoming outcasts. Beast disapproves his actions as now the government has a weapon against mutantkind. Jean telepathically guides Pixie, who teleports other mutants to the battle, including Beast. Apocalypse takes the chance and attempts to kill Senator Allen, but Kitty Pryde saves him. Nate Grey tries to sink the continent by moving the tectonic plates as he thinks the problem is the word itself, which he will end at once. Jean tries to reason with her son, to no fruition. That is when other X-Men like Beast, Colossus, Dazzler, Meggan, etc. appear before them.

Uncanny X-Men #8 Art

Uncanny X-Men #8 Spoilers

Spoilers: Despite Nate Grey disappearing before the X-Men, his Horsemen of Salvation continue to be under his influence. Bishop, Jean Grey and Psylocke come across an unconscious Legion and wonder where Nate and the kids might have gone to. With Nate gone, Kitty frees herself and explains that she has been kept captive along with Apocalypse and Senator Allen. Apocalypse assures the X-Men they all have bigger problems at the moment. Jean and Betsy manage to break into Legion’s mind and find out David has trapped the kids and Nate Grey into a hellish version of the Age of Apocalypse inside his head. Bishop wants to rescue the kids immediately, but Kitty thinks they should let the students buy them some more time to figure out how to solve this problem. Apocalypse suggests killing Legion to end X-Man once and for all, including sacrificing the kids in the process. The X-Men stop En Sabah Nur just in time. While Jean contains Apocalypse, Bishop asks Psylocke to put him inside Legion’s head. Betsy does so with her psychic sword, and Bishop finds himself in the mental Age of Apocalypse. Bishop prevents Armor from killing Nate Grey just in time. Nate realizes the Age of Apocalypse isn’t real and faces Legion, using David’s own mind against himself. Bishop, Pixie, Armor, Glob and Rockslide are brought back to the physical world. The X-Men, the students and Apocalypse are taken aback when a merged Legion/Nate Grey appear before them. Back at the Xavier Institute, Beast confronts Anole about stealing the vaccine.
