After Xavier:
A Primer to Marvel’s Age of Apocalypse

SPOILER WARNING: This essay contains spoilers for more or less anything connected to Marvel’s Age of Apocalypse, Exiles and several regular continuity X-Titles, including but not limited to events in Uncanny X-Men, Alpha Flight and X-Factor from the mid to late 1990s/early 2000s -- as well as a few minor bits of more recent continuity (and by recent, I mean 2006-2007).

Disclaimer: Keeping track of the changes made to one comic’s continuity can be tricky enough, particularly when the continuity is several decades old and has been written, rewritten and altered by dozens of writers and editors and artists over time. Trying to do so with TWO (technically three) timelines is like trying to untangle cooked spaghetti while wearing oven mitts. I have made every effort possible to be as accurate in my portrayals of both regular Marvel continuity (known herein as Earth-616 or simply 616) and the Age of Apocalypse continuity (known herein as Earth-295 or the AoA), but chances are good that I have made errors. For which, I apologize in advance.

This essay is broken into two parts: the first is a primer to the AoA universe for those unfamiliar with it and the second is me justifying my 'shipping of the Age of Apocalypse versions of Sabretooth and Wild Child. Thanks to [personal profile] mithen for the opportunity to write this essay and thanks in advance to all of you who read it.

Author’s Notes: Written to satisfy my need for Sabretooth/Wild Child slash fic, though really, this fic could be read as going either way. What you absolutely need to know, if you’re not familiar with the AoA universe: AoA is essentially the Mirror, Mirror version of the Marvel Universe where everything has gone to hell, AoA Sabretooth is a good guy (having had a change of heart) and AoA Wild Child is a feral psycho who doesn’t/seemingly can’t talk. Oh, and Sabretooth walks him around on a chain.

Sometimes, they slash themselves...
