  X-Man
Following the Age of Apocalypse, Nate was transported to the regular Marvel Universe, where he made his new home.
The X-Man comic series was pretty aimless following the Age of Apocalypse, as he danced on the periphery of the X-Men universe, often coming into conflict with other members, including his mainstream-universe counterpart, Cable, due to his misunderstanding of the world around him.
Threats from the Age of Apocalypse eventually began to reappear, and X-Man made it his goal to insure that his new home would not fall victim to the same destruction as his own.

 Review, Rating, Rossmaning: After Xavier - The Age of Apocalypse
The whole Age of Apocalypse storyline (as it was to be called) revolved around one key event that was never meant to happen: Professor Xavier was killed twenty years in the past before he could start herding young, impressionable mutants into his lair and mind-warping them to kill his old enemies and fly his jet.
Apocalypse had been waiting hundreds of years for the right time to take control of the world.
It was fun to re-read all of my old Age of Apocalypse graphic novels again and all that, but it gets a couple of points off for making me feel like a lonely comic book loser who actually had time to re-read his entire Age of Apocalypse graphic novels again.

 X-Man's Biography
However, in the world without Xavier, The Age Of Apocalypse (AoA), things went like this: A clone was never created because Nathaniel Essex had access to both Scott and Jean.
Jean was a prisoner in Apocalypse's slave pens and Prelate Summers was the "warden" of the the pens as Essex's adopted and favored son.
The Age of Apocalypse ended in terrible tragedy, but Nate survived that world along with three others (Holocaust, SugarMan, and Dark Beast), to find himself crash landing in Switzerland, in a world where Xavier still lives.

 X-Men #41
This is the issue which kicks of the Age of Apocalypse storyline which ran for the next four months, during which X-Men was suspended, and a title called Amazing X-Men ran in its place.
For reasons which were always a little tough to follow, the creation of the Age of Apocalypse timeline disrupts the M'Kraan Crystal, a giant cosmic crystal from early Phoenix stories in the late seventies, and causes a "crystallisation wave" which affects the whole universe.
To be fair, Age of Apocalypse was one of the superior 1990s crossover events (after all, at least it was story-driven and self-contained).

 Sunday Slugfest - X-Men: Age of Apocalypse Review - Silver Bullet Comics
He was involved in some chapters of the original event, and was significant in contributing character designs for the likes of “Age of Apocalypse” Kitty, the Sugarman and the general sense of a world turned sideways.
The Age of Apocalypse epic featured a familiar but completely retooled cast, as heroes became villains, villains fought for justice, and forbidden romances flourished.
The mini-series takes place one year after the conclusion of “Age of Apocalypse.” All a new reader will know is that somehow, at sometime, a villain called Apocalypse (who died years ago in the Marvel U) conquered America.

 X-Men: Age of Apocalypse #6
The Age of Apocalypse is a classic example of a story which does not call for a sequel.
At the end of the issue, X-23 suddenly decides for no good reason that she wants to have her memory unscrambled (did we even establish before that it was impaired?), and then learns that Wolverine is her father.
The very idea of a sequel to the Age of Apocalypse was questionable to start with, but it could still have been done an awful lot better than this mess.

However, If you are a true fan of the AOA series then you should have no problem accepting this as the first vol.
2 should be read first...The Age of Apocalypse was the high mark for the X-Men (and company) in the 1990s, and can in many ways be considered the climax of the X-Men saga.
1 of the AOA is good but I recommend that new readers to purchase the later volumes and only pick this one up if you can't get enough of the AOA (but even then the New Age of Apocalypse is a better outlet for such a craving).

Comment: The Age of Apocalypse was the high mark for the X-Men (and company) in the 1990s, and can in many ways be considered the climax of the X-Men saga.
The Age of Apocalypse storyline (has it really been 10 years?) began when Professor Xavier's illegitamite son David "Legion" Haller traveled back in time to kill Magneto so his father's dream of human and mutant unity would come true.
As a previous reviewer stated, the AOA storyline should have been re-printed the way it was originally released, beginning with the intro X-Men: Alpha one-shot, the various series', and the finale X-Men: Omega, with the issues collected here scattered between.

 Age of Apocalypse 10th Anniversary - X-Men - tribe.net
The last two stories lead into the new AoA mini series, one being Weapon X runs into the Silver Samurai and the other being the aftermath of the final battle with Apocalypse (I'm not giving away the spoiler of a certain someone who didn't die *hint: it ain't Apocalypse*).
Also, they have added AoA versions of Xorn (there's a surprise behind who that really is...!) X-23 (I think this is being forced on us), and the Guthrie kid with the wings.
For anybody who's wondering the dude on the covers with the horseshoe on his forehead is the Silver Samurai, and he is a part of the X-Men (with a funky sword, too!).

Of course, the X-Men were able to repair the timeline, and the Age of Apocalypse was wiped from existence.
In the wake of Apocalypse’s defeat, the human race has started to rebuild, and the X-Men are brought in to hunt down any rogue mutants that might jeopardize the fledgling peace.
Whereas the original featured scores of characters fighting their way through multiple battles to achieve a common goal – namely, saving the world by restoring a broken timeline – this story is about a mutant manhunt.

 Comixfan Forums - MARVEL RETURNS TO THE AGE OF APOCALYPSE
Marvel celebrates the 10th anniversary of the legendary Age of Apocalypse epic in March, with the first of four trade paperback collections, a brand new one-shot, and limited series.
The Age of Apocalypse was the greatest X-Men story period, and although modern continuations are but a pale shadow of the original thing, it will certainly outclass any pathetic Morrison/Ultimate stuff in my eyes.
The AOA mini provides the best chance for sales of the AOA trade to be given a kick up the backside, which is a good thing.

Dark Beast is the only one of these four still alive.
These include Nate Grey (the AOA version of Cable), Holocaust (one of Apocalypse's horsemen), Beast, and Sugar Man. Nate Grey allies himself with the X-Men a few times, but later "dies" by disseminating into every lifeform in the universe.
