Comic Summary: The Exiles have arrived in the next reality where Namor the Sub-Mariner has declared war on the surface of Earth and already forms a beachhead in Latveria. Despite their negative feelings towards Latveria’s Emperor, the team has to assist Dr. Doom to stop Namor from gaining a foothold on the surface. Namor's troops have captured the Latverian army in a force field, and also taken over Doom's castle, where they are currently working on a technology that will allow the Atlanteans to breathe on the surface, but impossible for humans to do so. Mimic goes to attack the castle while the rest of the team go to the aid of the army. On the way, Mimic flashes back to his native reality. Calvin grew up with the wrong crowd. He came into contact with the X-Men, and followed them because his manifesting mutant power was copying all of their powers. He joined the Brotherhood but they abandoned him when he was defeated by the X-Men. While in jail, Mimic was contacted by Xavier, and agreed to join the school simply because it was better than being in jail. Over time Calvin began to fit in with the X-Men and eventually became their leader. Calvin misses his homeworld, and the only thing that keeps him sane in his current situation of being stuck with the reality hopping Exiles is Blink. Calvin is unsure if he really loves her or just sees her as a safe place. Mimic arrives at the castle and is attacked by a pair of doombots, but easily takes them down. Continuing deeper into the castle, he stumbles on a room filled with doombots. They switch into battle mode and attack.

Comic Summary: In an alternate reality, all of Earth is ruled by President Tony Stark, Iron Man, from his Oval Office in New York City. Little does the world know that it was Iron man who formed a secret alliance with Magneto to cause the Mutant Wars. After a huge amount of Earth’s super-beings perished in the conflict, Iron man betrayed his ally and killed him, which the public perceived a heroic act. The last true opponent was Dr. Doom, but Iron man killed him in battle. What the public doesn’t know is a radiation blast from Doom permanently disfigured Stark and that the handsome face is just a holographic projection. Also, he is forced to wear his armor all the time. Right now, the Inhumans are among the last free people, as they turned their city into a giant submarine, hidden well behind a cloaking field. Unfortunately, necessary repairs force them to the surface, where they are discovered. Black Bolt and his wife have only one option: to protect their city by activating the G Barrier. It was a parting gift from Sue’s deceased first husband, Reed Richards. Originally designed to keep Galactus at bay, the shield disintegrates everything that it comes in contact with. Stark’s armed forces learn this the hard way. While Iron Man ponders his next move, after all he needs the Inhumans alive to breed a superhuman army to conquer the stars, a new group of players arrive on the scene – Weapon X, a reality-hopping team of time-displaced operatives. Their mission is to set things right.

Comic Summary: Weapon X explains to President Stark, aka Iron Man, that their mission is to help him breach the force field around Attilan, enabling him to capture the Inhumans. It takes a little effort but, with secret information provided by the Tallus, they finally convince him of them really being reality-hoppers with a mission. They even know about a special key that Reed Richards left in someone’s care, just in case that his force field technology fell into the wrong hands. The problem is that this person is Wonder Man, who, after being close to this reality’s Hulk when he was killed by a gamma radiation bomb, absorbed some of the rays and the Hulk’s genetic material, turning him into an amalgam of himself and the green goliath, more powerful than ever. Weapon X secretly enter the home of him, the Scarlet Witch and Dr. Strange, unnoticed thanks to magical talismans created by Storm. However, the Spider gets careless and gives Dr. Strange an opening to rip off his magic necklace, thus setting off the fortification spell cast by Wanda. Now alerted to the team’s presence, Wonder Man immediately shows up to fight them. While Angel and Vision search the house for the strange key, the rest of the group fights Wonder Man. When the Spider threatens his lover, he gets mad and transforms into his Hulk state. The team has no other option than to use a portable gate to the Negative Zone, given to them by President Stark. “Wonder Hulk” is sucked in, but so is the Jen Walters, the Weapon X’s Hulk, because Spider refuses to save her with a webline. Instantly, the team gains a new member in some alternate reality version of Colossus. Weapon X returns to Iron Man with the key. Meanwhile, in Attilan, Black Bolt senses that things are coming to an end and decides that he’ll make sure his race will never be hunted again.

Comic Summary: Dr. Strange and the Scarlet Witch alert the Inhumans that the disruptor is now in the hands of President Stark. The Inhumans wonder what to do. Black Bolt studies several books on races that have been hunted down and, after reading a tale entitled “Masada,” he formulates a plan. Sue Richards, his wife, doesn’t agree with it, but it’s now use, his decision is made. The strongest warriors of the Inhumans await the attacking forces outside the barrier, while inside Black Bolt carries out his plan. Led by Weapon X, Stark’s troops attack Attilan. Vision is maimed by Karnak, but Colossus and Gambit manage to get the disruptor to the G-Barrier. The device works and the force field fades. Weapon X and Stark’s army storm inside, but they find only dead bodies. The Inhumans have robbed Stark of a true victory, as he needed the Inhumans as slaves. With their mission at an end, Weapon X is teleported to the next reality, although they are not aware of the events they really set in motion. Black Bolt, hovering above Attilan, shouts a single word a full force “Masada,” killing himself and vaporizing everything in a certain range, so that Stark can’t even use the bodies’ genetic material. Later, President Stark ponders the situation, when he is suddenly sought out by Sue Richards, who kills him with an invisible force dagger right before being shot by his security. During the battle, Black Bolt made Sue cloak 300 Inhumans, who will secretly rebuild their society in hiding, while, in the following years, all of Stark’s machinations will be uncovered. Thus, the timeline restores itself to what it should be.

Comic Summary: There exists a reality very similar to 616 where recently the Hulk was sent into outer space. Unfortunately this is where things diverged drastically. Annihilus captured the Hulk whereupon Hulk killed him, took control of the Annihilation Wave and attacked Earth. Almost all of Earth’s heroes were killed. The only ones that remain are a group of youngsters led by Quentin Quire. Following a dream by Sophie, former Cuckoo member, that tells of a group of individuals that help troubled realities Quentin and his friends set about sending him into the dimensional timestream to find them. After repairing Cerebra, and despite the likelihood of a bug attack, the telepaths and Wiccan send Quentin away. He first ends up in the reality once ruled by Hyperion. After Nighthawk helps him battle his other-self and some cronies, Nighty hands over the Tallus he found when he was a boy, which earlier told him to meet Quentin. Quentin teleports away and ends up in the Vi-Lock reality. He meets Mary Watson and Luke Cage after placing flowers on Mariko Yashida’s grave (as per the Tallus). After learning a little bit of their history he teleports away again. He reappears in a world similar to the New Universe. He befriends Jenny Swenson who was attempting to destroy the Spitfire armor her father helped create after learning of the government’s plans to use it to hunt down paranormals. Quentin convinces her to use it to help people and then disappears yet again. This time he finds himself in the Age of Apocalypse timeline. He helps rescue Wild Child from a Friends of Humanity attack. After completing his final mission the Timebroker appears and finally offers Quentin the Exiles he’s been searching for. Quentin steps through the Timebroker generated portal and ends up in the Crystal Palace where he learns that the people he’s been meeting are the Exiles he will lead. Back on Quentin’s world his friends are doing their best to hold back the bugs. Quentin and the Exiles appear in the nick of time and destroy the immediate threat. Back at the Crystal Palace it is revealed that Blink and Sabretooth were behind the whole thing with Quentin.
