As we make our way through round two of Marvel’s Age of X-Man event, connecting threads are beginning to intertwine. In Age of X-Man: Apocalypse & The X-Tracts #2, we see Apocalypse and Unveil breaking Kitty out of prison — the same prison that Lucas Bishop is thrown into later. In the process, we see what mark the origins of this community-love cult, which aims to overthrow Nate Grey’s fascist regime by convincing people to see the light.
