Marvel reveals 12 mutants competing to be Apocalypse’s successor

‘X-Men: Heir of Apocalypse’ is a four-issue biweekly series launching in June.

Press Release

Marvel Comics announced X-Men: Heir of Apocalypse back in March, and today, they’ve revealed the mutants competing to be Apcoalypse’s successor. The mutants include Cable, Cypher, Emma Frost, Exodus, Forge, The Gorgon, Mister Sinister, Mirage, Penance, Rictor, Wolverine, and Armageddon Girl. The four-issue biweekly series kicks off in June.

“The shadow of Apocalypse has loomed large over not just the Krakoan era, but a substantial percentage of mutant-focused storytelling since his debut in 1986,” Foxe shared last March. “These past few years have shown so many new facets of En Sabah Nur, and my Krakoan peers aren’t done with him quite yet. So it’s both an immense honor and a ton of pressure to step up to the slab for Heir of Apocalypse, which charts a new path for his legacy in the years to come. I’ve been lucky to bend the ear of past and future stewards of these characters to make sure these four issues are a meaningful entry in the Apocalypse canon–and I had every X-fan’s DREAM task of selecting twelve mutants from across the history of the franchise who might just be up for the titular role. Some are characters I’ve already had the privilege to write, some are characters I’ve eyed enviously, and some won’t survive the series…but only one will become the Heir of Apocalypse.
