Factor-X

    (Marvel, 1995)
™ and ©1995 Marvel Entertainment Group

In 1995, Marvel put all the X-Men titles on hiatus and replaced them with titles that chronicled “the Age of Apocalypse,” a reality where Apocalypse and his mutants rule the world. Factor X focuses on the Summers brothers, Cyclops and Havok. Together with Aurora, Northstar, and Cannonball, they work for Mr. Sinister as a strike force that captures renegade mutants and humans. Meanwhile a twisted, gray-furred version of the Beast performs genetic experiments on those mutants and humans to further Sinister’s goal of creating hybrid supersoldiers for Apocalypse. Things get complicated when Sinister, weary of Apocalypse’s shortsighted machinations, abandons the Summers brothers, and they—and particularly Cyclops—are forced to wrestle with the morality of Apocalypse’s world order. All in all, it’s fairly intriguing stuff which doesn’t require much prior knowledge of convoluted X-Men lore.
