Age of X-Man

When Marvel relaunched Uncanny X-Men in November of 2018, the publisher knew they had less than a year before Jonathan Hickman would arrive to relaunch the franchise again in July of 2019. Of course, that is way too long to go without a relaunch of some sort at Marvel, so writers Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson conceived of The Age of X-Man, a crossover event that saw most of the X-Men transported to an alternate reality created by Nate Grey where everyone in the world is a mutant and peace on Earth has been achieved through the outlawing of love and emotional connections between people.

Of course, the X-Men are one of the horniest superteams in the history of comics, so chaos quickly broke out, with the former supervillain Apocalypse leading a hippie love cult preaching the message that X-Men founder Charles Xavier had many lovers and knew well the power of raw eroticism. In addition to framing books Age of X-Men Alpha and Age of X-Men Omega, the Age of X-Men consists of six concurrent mini-series exploring different aspects of the alternate reality: Marvelous X-Men, NextGen, Apocalypse and the X-Tracts, The X-Tremists, Amazing Nightcrawler, and Prisoner X.
