NYCC Shocker: Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler Are Going to Ruin Apocalypse

At the New York Comic Con X-Men panel Sunday, the rising star writing duo of Zac Thompson and Lonnie Nadler had a bold proclamation for X-men fans: they're going to ruin Apocalypse.

The pair are writing an Apocalypse backup story in this month's X-Men Black one-shots, which started in last week's bestselling X-Men Black: Magneto. The story sees Apocalypse lose his mutant powers and become what he fears most: a human!

"We're going to ruin this character for a lot of you," said Thompson at the panel.

"He's just so evil that its hard to make you like him, so we didn't do that," said Nadler.

The X-offices didn't stop there, however, with X-Editor Jordan White threatening to literally transform into a supervillain himself, saying of spineless interdimensional capitalist Mojo: "Some day, I'm sure, I will grow into him."

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
