The world as we know it has been reshaped into something ghastly, as the human race has pretty much gone extinct, safe for a hefty amount of mutants, which are now under the rulership of Eimin, one of the Apocalypse twins. Even though the world may look different, many familiar faces still reside in it and among them, allegiances have shifted and a few are still trying to go back in time, to restore Earth to its former ‘glory’, which is now called Planet X. The world may seem like a makeshift utopia, it’s one built on the graves of billions on innocent humans.

To keep things fairly simple, we’ll reduce the story part to a minimum, as your experience of this part of the arc can easily be ruined if we give away too much of some eye-opening events. Alex Summers is seemingly one of the last Avengers left in a futuristic Earth called Planet X. While he could lead a fairly peaceful life, he still keeps on fighting for humanity, even if there aren’t any humans left. He is determined to alter the timeline, not only for him, but for his daughter as well. There’s only one catch to this entire ordeal: he’ll have to destroy Planet X, or more precisely, the timeline, to allow things to return to their original state. That being said, things become rather complicated when old allies become foes, and old enemies become very reliant allies.

Rick Remender cracks open a very interesting new storyline at a fairly rapid pace, all within the same Apocalypse twin story arc. You’ll be treated to more than enough action, with enough story value to keep things interesting. A story such as this wouldn’t have a proper backbone without sufficient twists and turns, unexpected events and some hefty emotional scenes, and this seventh omnibus pretty much has all of them.

Even though a certain sense of realism remains to be found in the illustrations, the drawings have a harsher atmosphere, and for some reason a ‘fifties’ kind of vibe due to the rather dark and gritty facial expressions. The added shading heightens this look, and truth be told, looking at the scenario, this was actually a great style to incorporate in the story. All of this is accompanied by fairly light, yet bland colors, which enhance the retro atmosphere.


Uncanny Avengers #007 opens a new chapter in the ongoing Apocalypse arc, and we must say that this original twist with unlikely alliances, odd enemies and a strange new setting is superb. You’ll be treated to a very intriguing and action packed storyline in a futuristic version of Earth, albeit without us, the normal humans. If you’re a fan of seeing some other character hog the spotlight for once, or allies switching sides, this storyline will certainly go down smoothly.
