Roughly twenty-five years ago, mutants became public knowledge, though there were many around long before that. For decades before humanity became aware of this evolutionary leap, men like Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr worked to protect and advance their species, their differences in philosophy ultimately driving a wedge between the two men.
Charles, crippled in an accident he chose not to talk about, retired to his family estate, and began to formulate a plan to gather and train young mutants as protectors of humanity, envisioning a time when mutants and humans could co-exist in a mutually beneficial relationship as Erik Lehnsherr took on the moniker Magneto and, fearing a genocide of the magnitude he had witnessed as a child in Auschwitz, took on a more violent and sinister attitude, believing in the power of dominance and survival of the fittest.
It is now the current time. The remaining members of Xavier's first class have grown up, and run the school that he founded, as well serving as the ambassadors of mutantkind he wanted them to become. The X-Men use their powers to protect a world that hates and fears them because it's the only way towards peace.
But, every good must have its evil, and Magneto's people, the terrorists known as the Brotherhood stand in opposition to the X-Men, using their abilities to dominate, to strike down, to destroy.
Caught in the middle of this battle is the rest of the world. Some like X-Factor lean towards the light, others like the Hellfire Club remain in the shadows. Still others like the outcast Morlocks merely wish to survive, alone and unnoticed.
Where do you stand? Will you help us save humanity from that which would destroy it... or will you dance in the ashes?

October 2007: The Brotherhood attack the Friends of Humanity headquarters in Connecticut, laying waste to the entire town before being stopped by the X-Men. In the attack, Cyclops is captured and tortured for two days by Mystique and other members of the Brotherhood. Appalled by the actions of the Brotherhood, former members Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch and Havok defect to the school for asylum. During the search for Cyclops, Phoenix destroys the Brotherhood headquarters, and razes the mind of the assassin Longshot, reducing him to a childlike broken state. After a battle between the X-Men and the Brotherhood, Cyclops is rescued and the Brotherhood scattered. The attacks leave Scott needing a cane for some time, but he reunites with his long-lost brother, now on a road to redemption, and Jean accepts his proposal of marriage.SCOTT AND JEAN'S WEDDING & FORMATION OF X-FACTOR--February 14th, 2008
February 2008: Scott and Jean marry. Alex Summers, in his continuing search for redemption, forms X-Factor in the Red Hook area of Brooklyn, now known as Mutant Town for the high population of genetically evolved who live there. With the school relaxed and celebrating no one is prepared for an attack by the Clone of Jon Harper who has come to kill Longshot after the damaged assassin had been brought to the school to be rehabilitated. Kept from his grim task by Mina, who reminds him of who his donor had been, the clone flees into the night.FALLOUT EXPLOSION, MUTANT TOWN-- Mar 2008
March 2008: Mutant Town is shattered by an explosion accidentally caused by one of the Hellfire Club. The newly formed X-Factor arrives to take care of it and attempts to bring the villains to justice. Outpowered due to the magnitude of the blast, X-Factor gets help from the X-Men. Despite the quick response, the threat that the Hellfire members unleashed on the world makes the humans so terrified that they institute the Sentinel program, giant human-piloted robots to 'protect' the city from Mutant Attack.
As time passes and mutant freedoms begin to be taken away one by one, something strange begins to happen with the X-Men, beginning with Scott and Jean, and spreading to those they are closest to. Something has taken hold of them and begun to change them from within, so subtly, so smoothly, that by the time it is realized, it is too late to stop it.
In 2008, XMR has its first Sitewide Plot.
Beginning with their honeymoon in February of 2008, Scott and Jean begin to show a strange callousness to their personalities. During the explosion in Mutant Town, they display almost cruel disappointment in X-Factor, particularly in Alex Summers, and it will not be discovered until much later that in those moments, they had wrapped their powers around his mind and joined him into the growing obsession and evil that is linking them into one sinister entity. As the Sentinel program begins to reduce mutants legally to second-class citizens, Scott and Jean begin to form a plan to elevate their people to their proper place at the top of the food chain.
The first overt signs of madness are seen at the State of the School Address a week after the Mutant Town explosion, where lines are very clearly drawn in the sand. The school is to become a military encampment, and anyone who disagreed is clearly a race traitor out to destroy them all.
On April 12th, 2008, the Edraiiti, a group of wayward and otherwise helpless children, are attacked by the Sentinels. The X-Men respond, and in their retaliation, those who have been infected by the insanity showed it in their violence. Announcing that the war has now been declared, ShadowX show themselves at last, Scott and Jean in perfect synch, joined mentally into a single solitary minded being, one that would rule the world... or destroy it.
Alex Summers, freed of their control by the telepath Alix Smith went into the school as a spy, claiming to still be a loyal believer in the dream. But, unbeknown to ShadowX, Havok is spearheading a rebellion with Warren Worthington, especially once he learns that their plans are to use their powers on influential humans and infect them with this obedience that has taken the school. Rewarded for pleasing ShadowX, and punished when they do not, the world will quickly fall in line. With the help of many still unaffected students and exiled staff, the rebellion manages to save many lives until Havok is caught and is sentenced to death as an example.
On May 17th, the ShadowX battles are fought on the grounds of the Xavier School. X-Men, X-Factor, students, staff, are locked together in a battle for the fate of the world. Some fall, including Havok, his heart crushed by ShadowX's telekinetic powers, though the Scarlet Witch manages to resurrect him, in the end, the battle is won when Warren Worthington does the only thing he could do to save his old friends... He kills them.
ShadowX is over, the strange mania discovered to have been caused by a chemical the pair had somehow ingested (never revealed to have been a poisoned bottle of wine sent to the honeymooning couple by Mystique), and once it is flushed out of their system, Scott and Jean are restored to normal, freeing everyone they had influenced.
In the aftermath of those dark times, the school is left fractured, and at the worst time imaginable, because, in June of 2008, the worst terrorist known to mankind resurfaces to bring his own declaration of war to Mankind.
As Magneto begins to reform his scattered Brotherhood, members of the X-Men and X-Factor face a strange event that has some of the adults turned into children and the children into adults.X-BABIES (July 7th, 2008), NEW YORK FLOOD (July 8th, 2008) & ATTACK ON THE VAN WYCK (July 9th, 2008)
July 7th, 2008: In the school, chaos reigns as those in charge suddenly found themselves turned into children, without explanation and the youngest students awake in adult bodies. As they and the affected members of X-Factor struggle to regain their proper ages and lives, things begin to spiral out of control rapidly, especially when the newly arrived, overpowered and undertrained Wiccan uses his abilities to stop a fire and accidentally floods most of lower Manhattan, including the Morlock tunnels on July 9th, 2008. Logan takes a team of the few adults left to deal with the disaster, but hundreds of people were killed, including a large number of Morlocks.
Meanwhile, X-Factor has to deal with their own problem as Magneto comes to claim his de-aged twins Wanda and Pietro from where the now-four-year-olds are being kept safe. Denied claiming them by their teammates on July 8th, 2008, Magneto gives the three days to change their minds, but the very next day on July 9th, 2008 Magneto launches an attack on the caravan taking his twins to safety at the school, destroying a portion of the Van Wyck Parkway. Driven off eventually by the determined X-Factor and the arrival of the sentinels, Magneto left without his children... leaving behind 67 dead humans.
At last on July 11th, the strange de-ageing is reversed as suddenly as it had happened, and everything goes back to as normal as it ever is around here. But what or who had been responsible for it all? We may never know.END OF X-BABIES-- July 11th
By August of 2008, things are somewhat settled until a mutant girl who could turn into dust is discovered in the desert. On August 29th, both the X-Men and the Brotherhood have a showdown in the desert over the powerful young mutant, that will leave major injuries on both sides, but eventually, the X-Men were triumphant...
Only to suffer a far more personal loss a few days later.KRAKOA & "DEATH" OF HAVOK AND POLARIS-- Sept 2008
After the constant battling since their formation, Alex Summers takes his team to vacation on the tropical resort island of Krakoa at the start of September. But the longer the group remains, the more it becomes clear that something is trying to kill them. Krakoa has awoken and is capturing the members of X-Factor to drain for energy. As they fight for their lives against the dangers of the island, they have no idea that two of their own are already gone, pulled through the Siege Perilous. Barely escaping with their lives, X-Factor has to return to New York, without Havok and Polaris, the pair presumed dead.
Taking advantage of X-Factor's absence, on September 5th, lead by Magneto's Acolytes, the Brotherhood stir the people of Mutant Town to riot and topple the Sentinel that stands "guard" over them.
As X-Factor, now lead by the redeemed clone of Jon Harper, returns broken, to a town in shambles, far away in the Savage Land, Alex and Lorna emerge from the Siege Perilous, naked as newborns, and with just as many memories. Found by stranded scientist, Karl Lykos, the pair are about to enter into a very strange and very frightening life.ATTACK ON WOLF'S HEAD ISLAND-- Sept 21st, 2008
In the wake of tragedy and loss, there is no time to rest. As the Sentinel Program is decommissioned, the Brotherhood takes their advantage and decimates the island town of Wolf's Head as part of a deal with the Hellfire Club. In exchange for taking out the town, the Brotherhood receives very important information that they will soon use to their advantage.INTRODUCTION OF "KICK"-- Sept 26th, 2008
As the adults fight to save the world, our teenage students are exposed to something much less sinister but just as life-changing, the power-enhancing drug, KICK. Starting at a rock concert on September 26th, 2008, several of the students become dosed with the immediately addictive drug, starting a downward spiral that will have lasting effects.
On a more personal note, Wiccan, still wracked with guilt over having caused the flood, on the 15th of October, attempts to take his own life. When Elixir saves his life, it helps the golden skinned mutant decide to fully explore his healing abilities and begin to study under Hank's guidance.TRIP TO SAVAGE LAND, DISCOVERY OF HAVOK AND POLARIS & INTRODUCTION OF TERRIGAN CRYSTALS-- Nov 10th, 2008
By Mid-November of 2008, things have settled enough that Scott and Jean have the time to take a select group of students to the Savage Land on an exploratory mission. They expect to find unique fauna and flora, but instead, they discover strange crystals that are capable of enhancing mutations, protected by a pair of half-savage mythical heroes, the amnesiac Havok and Polaris! Not out of the woods yet, the group is attacked by the mad Karl Lykos, now the monstrous Sauron, who abducts Elixir and turns him against the X-Men. Rescuing the boy, and ending Sauron's reign over the Savage Land, the X-Men return home, with their lost family members now free of their obligations to the primitives who Lykos had been so badly using, and a newly promoted Josh Foley, whose bravery and heroism even after being so manipulated is enough to impress even the normally critical Cyclops.
While they had been gone though, things had not stayed calm and peaceful. The X-Men are only one faction in this world.November 7th, 2008: The Brotherhood holds up a train to steal precious goods inside, but found themselves opposing not the X-Men, but the insane and unpredictable mercenary Deadpool.CAPTURE AND TORTURE OF ANGEL AND SILVER-- Dec 2nd-Dec 8th, 2008
December 2nd, 2008: The year nears its close with Jet Black of X-Factor and Warren Worthington of the X-Men, kidnapped by the Scrambler, a mutant with a grudge. What he sets in motion here will lead to some of the most horrifying events in XMR history. On December 8th, Warren and Jet's location discovered, a team of X-Men, X-Factor, and oddly enough, Deadpool, rescue their lost friends in a battle against not only Scrambler, but also his gathered Marauders. Not everyone comes out of this one unscathed, Warren's wings one of the most visible casualties... that and Cyclops's self control when dealing with the vicious criminal who mutilated his best friend.DISCOVERY OF THE PURPLE INFINITY SPACE GEM--Dec 23rd, 2008
December 23rd, 2008: For months now, the Hellfire Club has been hiding the fact that their Black King, the Shroud, is missing, but now with the kidnapped X-Factor telepath Alix in their custody, the opportunity to break into Cerebro and use it to find their King is upon them. But Max is not just missing, he has been taken by the Shadow King, and now possesses the purple Infinity Gem of space.
December 27th, 2008: Magneto calls upon his loyal Brotherhood and sent several of them to infiltrate the mutant prison known as the Cage, armed with the information that they had traded Wolf's Head for.
2008 ended but none of us knew that in 2009, the world itself would end.
2009 opens up as something dark begins. Hank McCoy and Madison Jeffries are the first to be taken on January 13th, but so carefully are they chosen, are they lured away, that their absences are covered with very careful alibis that will not be questioned, until it is too late, much much too late."DEATH" OF ANGEL (Feb 3rd, 2009) & DISAPPEARANCE OF AMELIA VOGHT (Feb 11th, 2009)
Two more vanished shortly after, Warren Worthington on February 3rd, killed in an airplane explosion and the Acolyte Amelia Voght on February 11th after one of the Brotherhood's heists. Still, these raise no suspicion. Warren had been devastated by the loss of his wings, and Amelia was not so slavishly devoted to Magneto that it would be impossible for her to flee.
On February 16th, 2009, the Shroud, free of the Shadow King's influence and with knowledge of what was coming, leads his Hellfire Club to the Murderworld Headquarters of the Brotherhood to seek an alliance so that they will be able to survive the imminent apocalypse.DISAPPEARANCE OF CHAMBER & INTRODUCTION OF MR. SINISTER-- Mar 7th, 2009
March 7th, one more falls, Jono Starsmore, taken and turned by the dark servants of a rising God, manipulated by Nathaniel Essex, the mysterious evil who calls himself Mr. Sinister.CAPTURE OF HAVOK BY THE HORSEMAN OF DEATH-- Mar 25th, 2009
And, on March 25th, 2009, the first of the Horsemen of Apocalypse, Death, crafted from the shell of Warren Worthington, reveals himself to take the last of them. Intending on taking the powerful Polaris, Death instead takes Havok, the fool sacrificing himself for the love he bears her. It is a mistake. It is a horrible mistake.ALLIANCE AGAINST APOCALYPSE--Mar 30th, 2009
Knowing now that this evil is upon us, on March 30th, the X-Men, the Brotherhood, and the Hellfire Club pledge an allegiance to stand together when Apocalypse shows himself, to put aside their grudges, to ignore their differing philosophies, to lay trust in enemies, and respect in each other. The most powerful men, women and children are about to face the greatest threat they have ever known. Not everyone will make it out alive.
On April 4th, warned by X-Factor, the Morlocks have to make their choice and a new leader emerges in Eldan Draith, "The Wraith." Some choose to flee, but others begin to ready themselves for the fight.THE HORSEMEN OF APOCALYPSE ATTACK-- April 7th, 2009
We do not have long to prepare, because on April 7th, the end of the world comes and the Horseman begin their ride. Pakistan is taken quickly by Amelia Voght, now the diseased Pestilence. The fiery War, once Alex Summers, lays waste to the East Coast of America, turning the citizens of Mutant Town into mindless soldiers. Devouring all in his path, Jono Starsmore who has ascended into Famine, strips the heartland of the USA down to bones. And, Death, no longer the Angel Warren Worthington, turns the people Paris and London into hordes of the monstrous walking dead.
The battles are violent and they are desperate. Some of those who fight are converted to Apocalypse's service. Some fall beneath the attacks of the Horsemen. Some act nobly and some are cowardly, but all seek to survive. It is, at last one who acted in the purest love, the woman who but for the sacrifice of her foolhardy boyfriend, would have been one of these monstrosities. Lorna Dane, the ferrokinetic Polaris, who strikes the blow that will save the life of Alex Summers, even as his attack kills her. Frying the nanites in his blood, the means by which he had been turned into a Horseman, as her dying act, Lorna shatters Apocalypse's hold on Havok. The damaged man flees the sight of his battle, abandoning his armies to bring her to the school in search of a healer. As Elixir tends to Polaris, Alex surrenders to the unworthy denizens of the school, and the first Horseman falls, War brought low by love.
But War was not the only Horseman to be defeated in those battles. Death soon joins him in captivity, taken down by the combined efforts of those who are close enough friends to have become family. Pestilence and Famine fall back after their brothers are contained, but not in defeat.
Survival of the Fittest is the new way of the world, and only Apocalypse is fit to rule it all.
As Apocalypse begins his rise though, in his temple, the first he had stolen free themselves. Box and the real Beast, not his dark clone, manage to escape and bring vital information to the X-Men and their temporary allies.
Back at the school, the amount of injured is beginning to overwhelm the medical staff, and as Mimic is killed in Paris, in the school, one of our own, the speedster Ricochet cannot be saved by Elixir. Before the young healer can properly mourn though, there is another wave of injured.
The battles rage for days, even without the Horsemen, and we prepare as much as we can, sending the children to a safety bunker, cleaning up the converts who rampage throughout the world, and using the information provided by those who have been freed or who are struggling against Apocalypse's dominion over their minds and bodies, we struggle to overcome our distrusts and hatreds to find a way to defeat him.ACTIVATION OF THE EYE OF HORUS-- April 12th, 2009
Then, April 12th, the end of the world comes as Apocalypse unleashes the Eye of Horus, a machine that changes the very face of the earth, and chaos falls upon us all.
In the earthquake ravished California, Japan torn by the Ring of Fire, and the hurricane swept New York, our teams disperse to save the civilians. A team consisting of the leaders of the X-Men, the Brotherhood and the Hellfire Club, and their chosen elite launch an attack on the temple itself, at last bringing Apocalypse down, his final trap to unleash an EMP that nearly
killd the last caravan of students, who had taken refuge on a quinjet fueling station.
At last though, Apocalypse falls, and his converts and horsemen with him. As his temple sank back into the sands, he left behind something that no one expected.
Charles Xavier had returned... or had he?
The world begin to rebuild and on June 12th, 2009, the X-Men and their students gathered together, not only remember those they had lost, but also to celebrate those young people who had gone above and beyond to exemplify the tenets of Charles Xavier's dream.RETURN OF CHARLES XAVIER (MAYBE)
In the school, Xavier himself, or the man who looks like the Professor, is coming to terms with what he may or may not be.
On graduation night, several of the students attend a concert, that in the post-apocalyptic world brings down Shield upon them, and its new director, Cameron Hodge, a man who has already falsified photos to show Havok fighting War for reasons that will very soon be known.BREAKOUT FROM THE CAGE-- July 10th, 2009
July 10th: The reason for the deal between the Brotherhood and the Hellfire Club that cost the lives of everyone on Wolf's Head Island is revealed, as the infiltrated CAGE falls.
In the Chaos of the post-apocalyptic world, the scum rises to the top. On July 31st, Doctor Doom attempts to extends Latveria's borders by force. Meanwhile, the HFC's Fight Club lures out a new power in New York, the Infamous Kingpin.SHIELD SPONSORS X-FACTOR-- Aug 2nd, 2009
August 2nd: Director Hodge plays his hand and offers government sponsorship to X-Factor. He promises immunity for the criminal acts done by many of them in exchange for their going public under Shield dominion. Havok has no choice but to agree.
Now, a fully sponsored and funded team, X-Factor is subjected to a series of psych examinations by Dr. Leonard Samson. They are not the most stable of teams, but there was a bond of loyalty felt by all, except by Pietro Maximoff who in his objection to Alex's betrothal to his half sister Lorna, demands he be tried by the team for the crimes he has committed. When the team stands behind their leader, Quicksilver knows that he can no longer stay in X-Factor.
September 12th: Quicksilver joins the Brotherhood and his twin sister, the Scarlet Witch, vanishes.
A year ago, members of the X-Men and some of their students went out for an exploratory mission to the Savage Land and they found missing loved ones... but at least one of them was subjected to the enhancement of some strange crystals...INTRODUCTION OF THE INHUMANS-- Sep 4th, 2009
And the Owners of the Terrigen Crystals want this crime to be answered for.
September 4th, 2009: Scott and Jean take several students on leadership training to the Savage Land, not knowing that the Inhumans have already arrived, and quickly they kidnap Josh Foley to make him pay for having been subjected to the terrigen mists, never mind that they were forced on him.X-FACTOR GOES TO LATVERIA -- Sept 11th, 2009
September 11:, X-Factor, meanwhile, goes on their first official Shield sponsored mission, a relief mission to wartorn Latveria which will lead them into a confrontation with Doom himself... or at least a rogue Doombot. Only Havok's team could go on a mission of mercy and end up rescuing Emperor Von Doom!THE X-MEN GO TO ATTILAN -- Sept 11th, 2009
September 14th: The X-Men have been lead to the moon by the Inhuman Maximus, but this confrontation with the Inhumans and the captured Savage Land Mutates has all be part of the Mad Inhumans attempt coup! Luckily the X-Men come to their senses before it is too late. Well, Elixir was damaged and put into a coma, and Amphibius was smashed by a giant hammer, but the rest of us survived unscathed and now with new allies.BROTHERHOOD ASSASSINATIONS -- Nov 4th, 2009
Back at home, there are other quiet and almost unnoticed damages, as Christmas approached, the lost Wanda, styling herself as Loki, God of Chaos, teaches New York a lesson in being careful what you wish for, until a combination of X-Men, students and Dr. Strange break the spell she has cast over the city, the Sorceror Supreme taking her home to his Sanctum Santorum. With the help of the twins Tommy Shepard and William Kaplan, Doctor Strange discovers where Wanda Maximoff has pulled her brother, her father, and Avery into a dream of a perfect life. At last it is revealed that the twins were Wanda's, conjured through her abilities and spun through time, and though it is heartbreaking to them all, they manage to bring her back to reality.BROTHERHOOD ATTACKS MAN'S MONUMENTS -- Feb 3rd, 2010
The year seems to be proceeding in a normal fashion, until something happens that changes how we thought about our universe.
We were not the only dimension.
Seventeen Years ago, Professor Charles Xavier began to form the X-Men by rescuing his first official student, Scott Summers, from a lifetime of potential blindness. But what would happen if at that crucial moment, Xavier never arrived. A Scott Summers of a far less upright character is formed in this other world, and soon, this Scott, a criminal who calls himself Ruby, crosses over, unwillingly, into our world. And, as the X-Men deal with this unpleasant, hard-drinking, chain-smoking, foul-mouthed version of their leader, a terrifying revelation is learned. Scott was not the first.DISCOVERY THAT THE REALITY WARPERS HAVE BEEN REPLACED
Nearly a month ago, the strange effect began with the reality and probability warpers. William "Wiccan" Kaplan, Wanda "The Scarlet Witch" Maximoff, and the cloned Arthur "Longshot" Centino had been replaced by their counterparts in this other world...THE OTHER DIMENSION
... a world they discover is vastly different from the one they knew. Without Xavier, without the X-Men, there was no one to speak for mutant rights, and a war has divided them from the humans. In this world, Jean Grey heads the Shield's dangerous mutant team, the Thunderbolts. Alex Summers heeds the call to help form a new mutant country, Jus Soli. Magneto is now Magnus, the hero of mutantkind, a beloved savior. Betsy and Brian Braddock are the prisoners of STRIKE. Jara heads the South American rebellion against the mutants who have claimed their land as their own. It is a different world, a harder one, and, the fragile lives these changed versions of those we thought we knew are about to shatter.
Because there is a darkness even deeper than this.
It begins when Apocalypse, himself, was killed by something more sinister that we yet know. In Russia, Diplomatic Aid to Magnus, Jaqueline Falsworth encounters something dark and frightening that will change the destiny of this world. Soon, the mutants outside of Jus Soli are targeted, a plan to blow up the New York Subway managing to ensnare Ruby and his Reds. The Thunderbolts are called to explore a ruined utopia under the sea, and Alex Summers, now Ambassador of Jus Soli learns the truth about something he's suspected for some time.
Jus Soli is falling, and their King is going Mad.MORE PEOPLE ARE REPLACED BY THEIR COUNTERPARTS
And, even worse, the strange flickering between worlds has begun in earnest. Iceman becomes Winter, one of Ruby's gang. Quicksilver and Spitfire cannot outrun the flickers of the other world. Even Jet Black changes places with her counterpart.
As Chaos descends over two worlds, all looks lost... until the trapped Scott of our world is rescued by the Alex of theirs... and the anomaly is no longer a secret.
Our dimensions are merging.
But why? How do the reality warpers factor in? What is happening to Magnus?
How do we stop it?DISCOVERY OF THE NEXUS OF ALL REALITIES --Apr 7th, 2010
In our world, the Wanda Maximoff who was from that other place begins the end, just as she began the beginning, feeling a pull to somewhere in Florida, which just happens to be the Nexus of All Realities, guarded by the Man-Thing. On the other side of the merging universes, Ambassador Summers's plane is shot down on approach to Jus Soli, presumably killing all aboard. But, thanks to the piloting skills of our Cyclops, they survive to witness the breach in the Nexus, and at last, we understand that if we don't get this fixed, and fixed soon, we're all doomed.RISE OF ONSLAUGHT & BETRAYAL OF CHARLES XAVIER
It is none of us, though, no matter which side we find ourselves on, that are the true danger though. It is someone far darker, far more menacing. Appearing first in the other world, this creature, who calls himself Onslaught has replaced President Magnus, and he has come to this world looking for Charles Xavier, the key to saving both worlds... or destroying them, and Ruby, desperate to keep Scott's life, is more than willing to use the equally desperate and displaced Anne Lee Austin, to turn the Professor over to the monster they thought was their savior.
But Xavier never makes it to the other side, and a visit from Ruby's angsty version of Speed reveals that they've been betrayed, and the collision of the worlds is too far gone to stop.
We're not ones to give up though, and from all sides, the X-Men and X-Factor, the Brotherhood and the Hellfire Club, and the displaced on both sides of Onslaught's void attack en mass. We will find our ways home, and we will save the Professor, our only hope.FIGHT IN THE VOID --Jun 7th, 2010
In the Void of the mad Onslaught's creation, we fight twisted versions of ourselves, the fears of old manipulations, the loss of family, the loss of self, and every manipulative horror that Onslaught could pull from our psyches.
The worlds part, everyone returns to their rightful place, to try and make their respective worlds better places. We learned from a World Without Xavier, that though one man can change a world, that only we can change our own destiny.
And, as the violins swelled, and the sunsets on WwX, XMR entered the Heroic Age.END OF WWX THE HEROIC AGE
Focusing on smaller, cross faction plots as we recover from the stress of almost two years of WwX, XMR enters the Heroic Age.THE BROTHERHOOD MOVES TO SANCTUARY
Rogue, a Brotherhooder up until now, begins to question whether or not she believed in Magneto's beliefs even as he begins the exodus of his people to Sanctuary. In the Morlock Tunnels, Sack and Marrow grew discontented with man's dominion over their people, and Rahne Sinclair's foster brother Kevin McTaggert, evolved to become the terrifying Proteus! Spitfire of the Brotherhood and young X-Student Speed quickly fell in love. Jubilee lost control of her powers, a petty crook named "Gorgeous" George Blair was accidentally mutated and Wild Child joined X-Factor.DESTRUCTION OF MURDERWORLD & THE ASSASSINATION OF CAMERON HODGE --Oct 31st, 2010
But then, on October 31st, the Brotherhood launch a trap almost three years in the making. Luring Shield Director Cameron Hodge and his team to the Coney Island Murderworld that had been their base, and despite the warnings from Havok and his X-Factorites, the Murderworld is blown to bits, killing all the attacking Shield Agents who had let their innate distrust of mutants, and their arrogant faith in Hodge... But Hodge himself was not a victim of the explosion. He is executed by Pietro Maximoff, Quicksilver proving himself, at last to his father, and damning himself in the Process. The explosion, the fire consumes Murderworld, but the Brotherhood has fled to Sanctuary.

It's the end of the school year for Xavier's, however, during the graduation ceremony huge Celestial beings descend on Earth and announce that the beings of Earth are to face judgement by the Living Tribunal. Across the United States and beyond everyone is seeing the same huge beings and hearing the voice of the Living Tribunal.
The Celestials, The Watcher and those beings of Earth deemed guilty are plucked from the planet's surface and taken to the floating purple disc that was beyond space and time.THE BEYOND - Beyond Space and Time
On the purple disc everyone was gathered, at first everyone began to gather with those they knew. The heroes gathered with heroes, and the villains gathered with villains. The former people of Earth were disjointed.
Some took the initiative and began to explore their new home.
All the while the Living Tribunal began to question those guilty of crimes against the universe.THE COUNCIL OF THE RIGHTEOUS - Beyond Space and Time
Rather than sit by idly and accept their fate, some began to organise leadership and to try and decide how to face this new fate. The explorer's had found a new world that lay beneath their prison and sought to explore it for resources to help them survive in this new dimension.
With those gathered in the Beyond believing their fate is sealed, Scott Summers seeks a way out - which is put into play by a collection of teleporters and reality warpers that see those taken to the beyond teleported away from the purple disc.THE FUTURE IS NOW - Twelve years in the future
While the portal succeeded in getting the prisoners away from the Beyond however, not everything goes as planned as the gathered individuals bounce off a dome that protected Earth and land on the moon. The Moon was not unpopulated, however, the rulers of the city of Attilan was aware of the intruders on their doorstep.
The arrival of the refugees did not go unnoticed as two naughty little heirs to the throne of Latveria spy on the visitors to the moon.
Following Scott's attempt to send those that could survive in the void of space, and their capture by the forces of Attilan, the refugees, now prisoners arrived in the city of Attilan.
As the prisoners settled into their new accommodations, Queen Luna Boltagon shared a moment with her fathers and a delegation of X-Men and Students met with the Mad King Ahura.
Meanwhile on Earth news of the new arrivals was quickly spreading.FREEDOM OF THE CITY - Twelve years in the future
Life in the city for the prisoners continued as wounds were treated, and new life came into the world. With Attilan unable to support its own population and the refugees, Scott devised a plan to take Earth back from the maniacs and weirdos that had taken over the world.
Two days later the portal was complete with the dome weakened so the portal would work, those who were returning to Earth began to descend to the planet's surface.
For those on Earth, they were met with the the ruins of the former school by those who had been left behind by the Celestials, they all that is left of the world's heroes. The reunion was cut short as John Sublime brought his message to the world following Scott's own broadcast to the world.
With an army of Maniacs barrelling down on the school, battle was raged, Doom's magic took a group to Latveria, A group was captured by the Maniac warriors and a group was teleported to what remains of mutant town.
In a dying act, Danger, used the last of her power to destroy what remained of the Maniac invaders to buy those escaping the time they needed to get out.
In Latveria there were reunions between children and their parents, albeit there was apprehension on both sides. Not so interested in the reunions, Wiccan snuck off from the group to see what Doomstadt was really like, their arrival just in time to help protect the citizens of the city from the invading army. Quicksilver had business of his own leaving Latveria to confront his godfather; The High Evolutionary.
Those that escaped with Longshot split further into two teams, one which battled the maniacs in Mutant Town while the rest went to the very heart of the weirdo empire. While the battle raged outside the church a group infiltrated the church but what they found inside was far worse than they could have ever imagined.
At the same time those captured by the Maniacs were taken to the the island of Alcatraz the headquarters of Sublime's operations on Earth. With the help of someone on the inside, the group were able to make their mistake and confront John Sublime himself.
The people left behind in Attilan were not having any more luck than the rest of the survivors as they battled to fight off the invading army of weirdos.
The losses were great on all sides of the war, heroes were dying, and everyone began to ask themselves if the battling was all worthwhile? If there was no one left to colonise Earth after the maniacs and weirdos were defeated. While shielded from the war outside Scott Summers approached his displaced daughter, and Franklin Richards to ask them the hardest of questions.TOUGH DECISIONS ARE MADE - Beyond Space and Time
Following Rachel and Franklin's sacrificing the world all those taken by the tribunal are brought back to the Beyond. It is here the gathered heroes, villains, and all those that fall in between are forced to make their toughest decision yet: Use the Infinity Gems to recreate the world as it was before the Celestials came to Earth, or destroy the gems and sacrifice Earth. There were heated debates on both sides until Rachel Summers stepped in. The pre-teen version of Scott and Jean's daughter made an impassioned case, and with her mother using the full power of the Phoenix Force, they sacrificed the stones and doomed Earth.
That was when the One-Above-All; who at times looked like Franklin Richards and at others like Rachel Summers announced that Earth had been found guilty, however, their punishment had been stopped. The One-Above-All set about recreating the world, removing that which ha caused the universe to fall out of balance.THE WORLD RESETS - May 15th 2016
Following The One-Above-All's judgement of the world, the world is recreated anew, not everything is as it was and the memories of the events involving the Celestial's, the Beyond, and the world of the future are only remembered as a dream like state with those memories fading into obscurity.
With the world no longer damaged, the status quo of peace and tranquillity reigns once more.
The adult Rachel Summers and Franklin Richards did not return with the others, instead, their six-year-old selves are all that remains, their memories of the events that happened and what they did to save the world largely still intact.
Following the end of this sitewide the chracters of XMR forgot the following events:
- Namor and Atlantis
- Prometheus and Sublime
- Daredevil's Death
- Selene & Nova Roma
- Time Travel and those who have travelled through time, including adult Franklin Richards and Rachel Summers (save for William Kaplan & Thomas Shepherd who still remember how they were born)
So while the characters may have been a part of these events, following the events in the Beyond they will have no recollection of these events. These events are left in the history for reference points but should not be referenced in current (post May 2016) threads.END OF SECRET WARS
