The Wish You Were Here! wiki last edited by JohnnyDarkness on 12/04/14 04:44PM View full history

Jean Grey and Scott Summers, displaced to a timeline where Apocalypse rules all! Two millennia into the future, the X-couple must face a new reality without their powers. Their daughter, Rachel Summers, is the Mother Askani. Nathan, their son, has been infected by a techno-organic virus by Apocalypse. With the stakes high and the future dim, will Cyclops and Phoenix be able to withstand the Age of Apocalypse?

During their honeymoon, the minds of Jean and Scott are transported to human host bodies in the Askani future by Rachel, aka Mother Askani. She is now over a hundred years old and the Askani Clan is destroyed. She explains that she brought the two into the future because she can’t raise baby Nathan and overthrow Apocalypse herself. Baby Nathan, however, had been captured by Palidan Ch'Vayre. Jean and Scott manage to wrest the baby from him and escape in a floodwave. 2000 years from everything they know and remember, they have to raise the child and overthrow Apocalypse’s rule.
