Comic Summary: Part One - Ororo has run right into the Shadow King’s trap. She struggles against the attacks of his Hounds and, after hurting the King with her weather power, she falls into a pool, from which she is rescued by Gambit. Gambit almost manages to mesmerize the King’s aide Lian with his charm, but is attacked by the King himself. Together, though, the two thieves manage to trick their attackers and flee via the roof and Storm’s parachute. Later, at the junkyard where Storm is staying, she admits that the Shadow King won’t give up and Gambit is now likely part of his vendetta. Nanny and the Orphan-Maker have finally almost located Storm again. Nanny is determined to “rescue” her, before the Shadow King gets Ororo. In Washington D.C., Val Cooper is sent by the Shadow King to assassinate Mystique, who, courtesy of a letter by Destiny, is already expecting her. However, Mystique doesn’t act to stop Val. Part Two - Bishop, Malcolm and Randall battle the criminals from the future, who desperately try to save Fitzroy. While Bishop kills the criminals, Fitzroy escapes, only to be captured by Shinobi Shaw, who tells him that the Gamesmaster deemed Fitzroy a cheater and takes his ring back. The X-Men try to stop Bishop, who seems to be an X-Man from the future, but the man believes that Fitzroy is trying to trick him with imposter X-Men. The X-Men battle Bishop and the others until Storm defeats the three. Meanwhile, Xavier and Forge help restore Jean back to her body, but Xavier senses another presence. Fitzroy’s complex detonates and the X-Men are separated from Bishop. Bishop and his men escape to track the rest of the criminals and the real X-Men. The X-Men regroup and Storm is more determined than ever to discover the truth about Bishop. Meanwhile, Gamesmaster and Selene watch the events unfold and laugh at what they have in store for the Upstarts.

Comic Summary: Gambit sits on the roof of the Institute, feeling chained to the past and fearful of the future. Storm joins him and her answers to Remy’s questions about the nature of a person go nowhere to allay his sense of pessimism. In San Francisco, Beast and Professor Xavier attempt to play down the possible threat that the Legacy Virus has brought with it. Audience member Renee Majcomb is sceptical and it falls to Dr. Valerie Cooper to put a government slant on the argument by insisting that, at this point, there is insufficient scientific information available to determine whether it is a threat. At the Institute, Boomer begins to doubt Sabretooth’s sincerity but Gambit has no doubts, and tries to torture him with holographic images of the people Creed has killed. When he goes too far, Storm steps in and warns him off. After the conference in San Francisco, Hank finds Professor Xavier in a contemplative mood and they discuss Sabretooth and his possible rehabilitation. Hank makes the point that Creed has committed many crimes and it is in his nature to kill. They couldn’t change him, and they shouldn’t let Sabretooth change them.

Comic Summary: In the White House, the president makes an emergency phone call to Russia, notifying him that the UN Security Council has activated the Magneto Protocols. A few minutes later, a man named Nick Fury awaits the actions of Forge, who is finishing the preparations to start the protocols, which he does. On Avalon, the actions of the world do not go unnoticed. Magneto flies to the middle of the barrier the humans have erected around Earth and realizes that the humans have made a mechanism which would never allow his powers to work while he was on Earth again, or so they think. Magneto concentrates, sending a swath of energy through the electromagnetic field, surrounding Earth, which effectively disrupts every electrical item on Earth. Cyclops informs the X-Men of the recent events and Xavier decides to take the opportunity that Magneto has given them to sneak attack him. After a lot of arguing, the X-Men reluctantly agree to allow Xavier to lead the battle, wearing his new battle armor that allows him to walk by using his mental powers to control it. After saying their goodbyes, the six-team members transport themselves to Avalon to begin their mission. After meeting Rusty and Skids and making their way to a control room, Xavier sends Quicksilver off to place a control disc in the computer’s main frame to allow Xavier control over the station. Xavier commands the station to teleport the Acolytes off of the station. Xavier seizes the opportunity to allow he and Jean to enter Magnus’ mind. Wolverine had attacked Magneto in order to save Quicksilver’s life, as he was about to be killed by his own father. Magneto wounded and kneeling on the floor, begins to use his powers to rip the adamantium from Logan’s body. Xavier, having had enough of Magnus’ killing, removes Magneto’s mind, leaving him exhausted and barely able to move. The X-Men are confused on what just happened until Xavier explains the horrific actions he just perpetrated on Magneto’s mind.

This worries Xavier, as Carter is powerless. They travel to the Ryking Facility where Carter is institutionalized, only to learn that Carter died from a spontaneous rupturing of every blood cell in the brain. While there, they are spotted by Sebastian Shaw, who begins to follow them. Gambit accompanies Xavier on the journey to Alamogordo, as that is the place that everyone on the list, except Shaw, has in common.

His mind flashes back to when he was a child, and his mother wanted to leave Alamogordo, but an abusive Kurt Marko wouldn’t let her. After stopping for a break during the long car-ride, the two men discuss various matters, and Xavier’s mind slips again, to a distorted scenario where he is commanding soldiers in war - the soldiers of course being the X-Men, whom he practically orders to their deaths.

Gambit is taken down quickly, but Xavier manages to stumble away, only to fall over and wake up in his mind again, this time, as a child, with Mr. Sinister looming over him, scalpel in hand.

Comic Summary: Returning from Boston, Piotr and Marrow are asked to return to the mansion immediately. Kitty, Kurt and Rogue are also given the same order and, as Professor Xavier speaks with two members of X-Force, Storm receives a similar call. Once they are all back at the mansion, they discover Wolverine lying dead in the medilab. They follow Charles to the command center, where he immediately becomes involved in a shouting match with Cyclops. Scott blames him for losing it; telling him that there are two factions in the room, one of which will blindly follow him and his dream, and the other which can think for themselves. As Kurt attempts to mediate, Charles accuses Jean Grey of controlling Scott’s mind. He attacks her mentally, and Cyclops unleashes an optic blast at his old mentor. Kitty manages to phase the Professor, but the blast hits Storm hard. Jean then attacks Charles in response and, before long, the two factions are separated as the walls come down between them. Cable smashes through the barricade and attacks Jean - killing Marrow, who comes to her defense. He then takes down Rogue also. Nate, meanwhile, blasts Colossus and then vaporizes Nightcrawler, before Piotr kills Nate with a desperate final attempt at stopping him. Kitty is horrified, as is Gambit, and they hold their respective loved ones as they breathe their final breaths. They then see images of those they think are responsible - Onslaught in Kitty’s case, and Dark Phoenix in Remy’s. As they fight back, everything suddenly reverts to how it was before all this fighting began. Charles apologizes to the X-Men, but explains that, in order to discover who had infiltrated the team, he had to put them through hell recently. Everyone present has passed his tests and appear to be who they say they are. Charles takes them to the medilab where Hank explains that the Wolverine on the bed is an impostor. He injects him with a liquid that Remy brought back with him and Wolverine turns into a Skrull. With the mystery over, Storm asks the obvious question. If this isn’t Logan, where is he?
