Synopsis for "Dark Angel Saga Chapter 1: Journey to the Age of Apocalypse"
X-Force joins Dark Beast to return to the Age of Apocalypse dimension to retrieve a Life Seed to save Archangel from becoming the Heir of Apocalypse. Psylocke confirms that Dark Beast is telling the truth after scanning his mind. Upon arriving in AoA, they find a dystopic New York City run by Clan Akkaba. As they make a stealthy beeline for Dark Beast's lab where the Life Seed is held, they are unaware that they are being watched. However, they stop to beat down Clan Akkaba for abusing enslaved humans. They then enter Dark Beast's lab and acquire the Life Seed. Unfortunately, AoA's Nightcrawler teleports in and snatches it. Dark Beast retaliates with electricity, only for Wolverine to knock him down. Though Wolverine is surprised to see AoA's Nightcrawler, the latter assumes him to be an impostor and escapes with the seed. X-Force gives chase, only for Wolverine to be ambushed by Sabretooth and Wild Child, who assume him to be a clone created by Dark Beast. Deadpool catches up to Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler decapitates him, only to be misdirected by Fantomex. But ti doesn't last long, as Nightcrawler teleports and stabs Deadpool in the head with his sword. Meanwhile, Wolverine overpowers Sabretooh. But before he can strike, Psylocke stops him, seeing that this Sabretooth is not the one he knows. As Fantomex and Nightcrawler fight over the Life Seed, it falls into the hands of Sunfire, who decides to destroy it. X-Force berates AoA X-Men for sentencing their dimension to a new Apocalypse. At the moment, Dark Beast steps through the dimensional portal, leaving X-Force trapped.
With Sentinels on way, AoA's X-Men take X-Force to their last refuge in Atlantis and apologize for misjudging them. Once they arrive, Nightcrawler decides to bring in X-Force unannounced to this universe's Jean Grey and wheelchair-bound Magneto.
