Quick History of Game Progression

*2014 At the game's state the world attempted to get grasp upon the situation of metahumans, aliens and the unknown, the approach was to say… lacking, all sides suffered.. This year is an all time new low for 'flatscans' against newly dubbed 'extranormals' an all encompassing term the designate the unknown. The first year of CoMuX became a back and forth struggle against terrorism culminating with the assassination of the US President by Hydra.

*2015 Began with Superman announcing himself as an alien in front of a press conference. The world again changed as people begin to look to the stars. That is until the oceans turned against them in the form of an Atlantean war machine. Metropolis is hit the hardest and it takes the combined effort of the Earth's Mightest to repel the invasion. Peace does not come easy and is all but shattered when Desaad of Apokolips attempts a second invasion on the planet. The world knows fear.

*2016 Was a year of reformation. The United States responded to the increasing difficulties with the formation of the 'Department of Extranormal Operations', in an attempt to approach unknown factors with more care and control. SHIELD went from US to UN control and struggled with funding, especially with the addition of SWORD to its umbrella. A new threat loomed in the form of Apocalypse and the Inhumans against the X-Men, while in Attilan civil war raged and the royal family was displaced.

*2017 To date the new year has seen Apocalypse and his Four Horsemen engineer disaster upon the Earth.'Terrigen bombs are unleashed across the globe awakening the NuHumans. One particular hybrid of immeasurable power named Alfie O'Meegan reboots some portions of the world and alters the reality of 626… people fade, the dimensional fabric tears just a bit more.
