Meet the New Four Horsemen for Apocalypse Wars in Extraordinary X-Men # 8
A new roster of Horsemen of the Apocalypse has been revealed in the first part of X-Men: Apocalypse Wars and its a complete surprise!
The book is written by Jeff Lemire with art by Humberto Ramos.
This story starts off rather simple with an X-Men team sent to Tokyo to investigate various mutant signs. The team is led by Colossus together with his students Ersnt, Glob Herman, Martha and Anole. They encounter the Age of Apocalypse mutant Sugar Man and it ends with a fight. What they weren’t expecting was being zapped to somewhere off just as the rest of the team arrives to back them up.
The Extraordinary X-Men arrive and try to find out what happens to their displaced teammates. Oh and Old Man Logan cuts off Sugar Man’s tongue which is very, very satisfying.
The rest of the team decide to follow their teammates to the future with the help of Cerebra.
When they arrive and OML decides to look for the people Jean Grey detected only to get blasted.
And who attacked them? Apparently its the teenage X-Men that got zapped earlier sans Colossus.
All grown up, the reunited team’s reunion was short-lived as they are once again attacked this time by a different group. Complete with what looks like the new Apocalypse for this timeline…
How did this happen? And why is this batch of Horsemen so different? We’ve got a literally crazy set of horsemen with Deadpool, Moon Knight, Venom and Colossus who may or may not really be the new Apocalypse.
