"The All-new X-Men fight in the shadow of fate! Together, can these young mutants change their destiny? Beast will try, but can a man of science find the guidance he seeks from the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange? Cyclops faces the inheritance left him by his notorious adult self; can he prove himself his own man? And perhaps none among them faces the legacy of an older counterpart quite like Evan-- a.k.a. Kid Apocalypse! Is he damned to become a genocidal madman like his namesake? When the 'Apocalypse Wars' begin, he will be tested like never before-- both in the present and in the far past! They're yesterday's and tomorrow's X-Men, and they're fighting the future the only way they know how!"--Back cover.
