Extinction: Rise of the Mutants is a post-apocalyptic setting story written by Zero777. The story is about users in the year 2 NI (Nuclear Inception), three years after the radioactivity cleared up and settled down, fighting to survive on a regular basis but find out that it can all be reverted to more peaceful times. It is currently on hiatus with the author rewriting the current chapters.

Overview

It is the year 2 NI (Nuclear Inception), three years after a catastrophic nuclear holocaust created an explosion that started off a deadly chain-reaction across the globe, forever changing its face, or did it? The land is now unrecognizable and very unforgiving as it is teaming with zombies! But that's the least of concerns! Mutated creatures also roam the land and cause chaos in their path! The events also gave birth to users that are granted with super abilities, will they use it for good, or will they use it for bad? Nobody is there to keep this system in check! A band of mutants and non-mutants unite in order to protect their existence in the new hostile territory that they now live as it is now an everyday chore. But soon enough they will discover that there is hope to keep on fighting, there world can return back to the way it was! But the journey to obtain this "power" will be perilous and users will lose their lives! Will they be brave and stand up to this call, this call of cause, this call to return things back to the way they were? What sacrifices will be made, or need to be made, in this journey of unsigned dangers?
