Apocalypse is the ruler of America. New York City is now Apocalypse Island, and all humans are sentenced to salvery! Only the most powerful mutants survive to reign alongside the high lord En Sabah Nur! Those who oppose him, like Magneto and his X-Men must live in hiding, under the constant threat of being cuaght -- or surrender. This is not some bleak view of the future -- this is now... the Age of Apocalypse.
