Weapon X BDS – X-Men: Age of Apocalypse – Art Scale 1/10
Climbing a technological pedestal filled with steel conduits and electronic components, the fierce Canadian mutant with his fury expressed on his face, unsheathes his right fist’s claws coated with the indestructible metal Adamantium (a fictional alloy), and brings his biggest scar in his left fist, of the hand that he lost in combat. Using a red and blue variant of his original costume, with his even longer, peculiar, and messy hair like a feline mane, in this other reality he takes upon his original codename as a definitive one. Iron Studios bring the statue “Weapon X – BDS – X-Men: Age of Apocalypse – Art Scale 1/10”, with the version of the hero Wolverine inspired by Marvel’s audacious comics saga from the 1990s.
A solitary mutant warrior, Logan was initially reluctant to join the X-Men, but when he met the team’s telepath, Jean Grey, his instant connection with the beautiful red-haired mutant made him reconsider his decision, and over time, they began a romantic relationship. Using the codename Weapon X, he trained the new recruits of the group at Magneto’s request. In a mission, Jean was captured, and he begged X-Men’s help to rescue her, but Magneto refused. Leaving the team, Weapon X goes on his own, infiltrating the laboratories of Apocalypse’s minion called Sinister. He was then able to free Jean, but for that, he had to face Scott Summers (Cyclops), a disciple of Sinister, in a fierce confrontation where Weapon X ripped one of Scott Summers’ eyes and where he disintegrated Logan’s hand with an optic blast. Disappointed with Magneto’s behavior, Logan and Jean decide to not come back to the X-Men and act on their own.
When the psychotic mutant named Legion, son of Professor Charles Xavier, went back in time to eliminate Magneto but accidentally killed his father, a great change occurred in the timeline, creating another reality. This event made it possible for the immortal mutant villain Apocalypse to take control of Earth, in a world where the X-Men were created by Magneto, who came to believe in Xavier’s dream of mutants and humans living in peace. The only person aware of how history has changed is the mutant Bishop, and only he can stop the emergence of the Age of Apocalypse…More than just a story arc, “Age of Apocalypse” was a big Marvel event, of great importance for the comics chronology and praised by fans to this very day. Now, this memorable saga is represented in another fabulous diorama set with statues by Iron Studios, revealed on the Inside Iron Studios Day, already individually available for Pre-Order.
