Decimating the Age of X

The fate of Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch

“Decimation.” In the Marvel Universe we know, this word has come to represent that fateful day when the majority of the world’s mutants lost their powers on the capricious whims of a mad Scarlet Witch. In the Age of X, it means something else entirely, though Wanda Maximoff and her twin brother Quicksilver still can’t escape it, as those who picked up certain Marvel comics last week learned.

“In Age of X, as in the X-Men's primary timeline, mutants have undergone a traumatic culling and reduction of their numbers,” explains Age of X writer Mike Carey. “By the grimmest of ironies, Wanda Maximoff—who in [the Marvel Universe] was herself the source of the Decimation—became in the Age of X its first victim. The corporations and political interests behind the Exonim program wanted some high-profile kills very quickly, in order to justify the expenditure of a full roll-out. The son and daughter of Magneto fit the bill admirably.

“Unfortunately, Magneto himself escaped alive—to become the scourge of the anti-mutant coalition and the creator of Fortress X.”

Well now all of Magneto's kids are dead in this universe. The big question is, was Charles Xavier even born in this world? And what about people like Sinister and Apocalypse? It seems that in a lot of Alternate Realities, thses two are ignored. I find it hard to believe that Apocalypse woulndn't get involved to some extent, unless he wasn't born either...it's all speculationon my part though.
