The X-Men can't help but get sucked into an alternate timeline every half-decade or so. Since they are currently experiencing the Age of X-Man, we at X-Nation thought it would be a fun idea to take an extensive look at the first time the X-Men dealt with such a major upheaval: the Age of Apocalypse. We kick things off with a small crossover that lead into the that event: Legion Quest.
