Fun Facts: There is an error in the comic but since this is alternate reality I am not sure it counts. In the comic Marrow knows that Gambit was the one that created the Marauders and led them to the Morlocks. In the real comic storyline she has never been told that it was him. The other X-Men always kept it from her. She disappeared before she ever found out.

Comic Summary: The Watcher describes a reality where, thanks to an impassioned speech by Gabrielle Haller, Magneto and Xavier didn’t part ways, but decided to work together. Years later, Xavier and Magneto have done much to help global politics, but not as much on the mutant front. While Xavier has opened a clinic to help mutants, they have only found a few candidates, chief among them Sage, Kitty Pryde, Mystique and Wolverine. During a meeting with several political officials, Xavier receives a new patient, a comatose Jean Grey, accompanied by her doctor, Hank McCoy, who, as Sage quickly finds out, is a mutant as well, just like the Russian agent Vazhin leaves for them as liaison: Peter Rasputin. Kitty shows the two men around, while Lehnherr and Xavier examine the comatose woman and find out that in its own way her mind is quite active. In the meantime, Wolverine and Mystique have failed in stopping several mysterious trucks belonging to Larry Trask and the giant robots within the trucks start fly off to attack Xavier’s school. Xavier’s associates, as well as McCoy and Rasputin, begin defending the building. However, they are in for a rough surprise, when the robots begin adapting to their attacks and reconstitute themselves after an attack. Surprise comes from an unexpected quarter, as Jean awakes and annihilates all robots in a Phoenix raptor. Later, Xavier and the others discuss the attack and the new options open to them, as, thanks to the surviving robot, they now have a mutant detection system. Xavier suggest that they form a team of X-Men to deal with further threats and the future of humans and mutants. At the Hellfire Club, Larry Trask vows destruction to all mutants. And Sinister’s agents – Sabretooth, Havok and Cyclops – bring news to their master of the attack on Xavier and of Jean Grey’s awakening.

Comic Summary: Gabriel and his friends continued to fight for mutant rights and eventually gained them after defeating Magneto and his Brotherhood. Vulcan was praised as the world’s greatest hero. Some time later, after attending a TV show about his life, Scott, Xavier, the X-Men and Moira meet up with Gabriel and confirm to them that, thanks to the help of the Fantastic Four, they now know the truth about what really happened on Krakoa that day. The Silver Surfer located Krakoa in space and brought it back to Earth orbit. Xavier goes into Gabriel’s head to confirm it all, and sees that Gabriel killed the X-Men, though it was by accident. Though they are all angry with Vulcan, Xavier understands that, if they go public with this news, it would damage mutant relations with the humans again and the peace would fall apart, with nobody ever wanting to trust a mutant again. So, he and the others come up with a plan. They have Gabriel and the Surfer attend a press meeting, in which Gabriel announces that he’ll be going to Shi’ar space to fight for those people, even though they killed his mother. In reality, the X-Men exile Vulcan to live on the remains of Krakoa all alone. Still, they leave a dome for Gabriel to live in, and enough food so he can live until he dies of old age, if he doesn’t kill himself first. Five years pass and, thanks to Sway’s powers, Gabriel is punished by being forced to watch how he killed the original X-Men… over and over again.
