This publication is also known as: Tales from the Age of Apocalypse #2 or Tales from the Age of Apocalypse: Sinister Bloodlines.

This issue was one of a set of two one-shot publications, both titled "Tales from the Age of Apocalypse." (The other one-shot subtitled "By the Light..." and features the X-Men (from the Age of Apocalypse timeline).

Neither issue features an issue number on the cover. The subtitles or story titles (e.g. "Sinister Bloodlines") are not on the cover either. This issue features the logo-like cover copy: "Starring Factor X." Other possible alternative identification for this issue could be Tales from the Age of Apocalypse: Starring Factor X and Tales from the Age of Apocalypse: Factor X.

The characters featured in this issue are not the "mainstream Marvel" (Earth-616) characters, but are their counterparts from the Age of Apocalypse alternative timeline.
