X-Men: After the Chaos is a movie based RPG, taking place after X-Men 1.
There wasn't much left. Cities leveled, billions dead, the civilization of complete continents wiped out without any survivors. The planet was in ruins and there was no stopping what was going to come next. Apocalypse was going to win and with his complete powers along with the Infinity gems nowhere in the galaxy would be safe. With his arrogance, he let his guard down and at that moment the Gauntlet had to kill each of the gems to get control back of the stones. With the stones, the Gauntlet sacrificed his life to kill Apocalypse to keep him from being able to do to the other galaxies that he had done to this one, but there was an unforeseen outcome of the Gauntlet using his powers. He created a new world. One where everyone was alive, set 9 years before the one he had come from.
No one else seemed to remember the old world.
It has been seven months since the X-Men stopped the Brotherhood from killing everyone at the summit on Ellis Island. Magneto has since then remained a prisoner of the Government while the rest of his team is still at large. Logan, having left the school after helping the X-Men has been spending these last months trying to regain his past memories while at the school Xavier is having side effects from his coma.
Tensions between ordinary humans and mutants have been at an all-time high since the Statue of Liberty incident. What the Brotherhood did has fueled the flames and fear of the everyday people. It seems every day someone is in the news telling a story about what a mutant had done with their powers. The accounts keep piling up to put the mutants in a bad light. Politicians and activist use these accounts to their advantage trying to force the Government to do something about it. People want them registered, People want them banned from schools and other public places their children attend, People want them locked away from everyone else. People even want them slaughtered. The news and politicians twist the facts in all of this to make the mutants in the wrong and the ordinary citizens in the right. It seems none of the networks are covering the growing violence against mutants.
No ones reported about the Mutants tossed away by society disappearing all over the US, entire colonies disappear overnight without a trace. Is this just the beginning of the act the Government is trying to pass against the mutants or is something else going on?
