What if the world didn’t end as it was supposed to? What if something far worse occurred? Willie (War), Frank (Famine), Petey (Pestilence), and Dave (Death) would like you to know that the Apocalypse began in 90 A.D., just as St. John watched and took it all down; all visible signs of it were then buried beneath human history so that none would notice until it was too late. With the centuries’ passage, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse aren’t the mindless gargantuans they were. They’ve learned to think, to reason, even to dream. They have also lost their horses, most of their weapons and any element of surprise. One ‘day,’ something like an opened ‘sixth seal’ and a waking nightmare inform them that it nearly is too late. To do what? Stop it. Arrive at a more fi tting coda for an ‘X-iverse’ in which they are the ultimate untouchables.
