Apocalypse - The Apocalypse Solutions - Ryan K Lindsay


1. Fantomex stands with a smoking gun by his side.
Caption-Cyclops: What have you done?

2. Fantomex stands looking into a vat of fluid where we see part of a young blue skinned body floating.
Caption-Fantomex: We separated the cloning sequence.

3. Three young blue skinned boys sit in front of Fantomex.
Caption-Fantomex: We made En, Sabah, and Nur.

4. Fantomex holds a gun to the head of one while the other two play outside through the window.
Caption-Fantomex: I killed the evil one.

5. Fantomex walks away from Cyclops, his gun still smoking.
Fantomex: I'm trying.
Fantomex: If I got it wrong then I'll just try again.

With a tip of the hat to Rick Remender's amazing Uncanny X-Force.


  1. Yeah, I like it. A fresh angle on the whole Apocalypse persona.

    I'm just glad he isn't an old man in a robot suit.

  2. Yeah, I like it. (Stop copying Ben, come up with an original idea for once in your life, Hirst!) Does Fantomex "try" anything though? He strikes me as a do or do not kind of guy. There is no try.

    Why has no one chosen Fantomex yet?

    Oh, and, Ben, I still prefer Old Man Apocalypse.

  3. I love the idea of En, Sabah and Nur.
