I thought this was always the same Bishop of the 616 universe, (1191). Is there really an age of apocalypse version of this character?

Yes and no. The Earth-295 Bishops past is the same as the Earth-1191 Bishops up to Legion Quest. Earth-295 Bishop ceased to exist after the timeline was repaired and Earth-1191 Bishop continued on to this day.--Max 19:54, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

This is one issue I've always had with alternate universes. If the Earth-616 Bishop is really from Earth-1191, shouldn't the Earth-295 Bishop be from an alternate universe too? For the most part, this little point is ignored when talking about alt universe characters.

Is it odd that it seemed to make more sense when I first read it years ago? Does that mean anything? I always thought that Apocalypse taking over years ago (due to the death of Xavier) caused there to never BE a Bishop (at least in our idea of Bishop). There'd be no XSE, no reason to come into the past, no Summers Rebellion. Therefore, the Earth-1191 Bishop was the ONLY Bishop that appeared in the Earth-295 reality. It was because he was a man outside of time, that he was the one that had to fix the time rift in the first place. Am I completely off-base? --M1shawhan 16:18, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
Nevermind, that doesn't account for the trip back in time at the end of the storyline to fix the rift... and meets his other-self. I suppose there ARE 2 different Bishops in the story. --M1shawhan 16:24, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
So are we merging this page or keeping it as is. I noticed all the appearances were redirected to the original Bishop but this page remains.--Max 06:56, September 12, 2009 (UTC)
The way I've come to understand Earth-295 is that it and Earth-616 were temporarily merged during the AoA event. That would mean that the 295 Bishop does/did exist, warranting that he get a page. Did the 295 version show up in the later titles showing Earth-295.

No, he ceased to exist but mainstream Bishop ended up getting his memories. Earth-295 Bishop is about 20 years older than mainstream Bishop due to time travel. This guy is dead and lived a life the Earth-1191 Bishop did not. Its sort of like the "Days of Future Past" characters. Thier lives are the same as their Earth-616 counterparts up until Dark Phoenix saga, but we don't classify them as Earth-616 characters. I think we need to go back to treating these Bishop's as seperate characters. --Max 09:56, October 17, 2009 (UTC)
