Comic Summary: Framing story: As the Watcher witnesses the wedding of Cyclops and Jean Grey he muses about other worlds where things went differently.
1st story: When the Beast quits, so do Cyclops and Marvel Girl to get married. While Jean and Scott (and all the original X-Men) have a life outside super heroics Xavier creates a new X-Men team, which he accompanies on their mission to Krakoa where they all die. It takes the Avengers to defeat Krakoa and the former X-Men are left to wonder if things could have been different had they stayed.
2nd story: Marvel Girl starts a relationship with Angel instead of Cyclops, who withdraws more and more into his role as an X-Man. However, he becomes so fanatical that Xavier names the Beast leader instead of him. Enraged, Cyclops quits and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants easily convinces him to join their cause.
3rd story: Cyclops discovers that Phoenix has started an affair with Wolverine behind his back. Despite that, they all stay on the team. Phoenix is corrupted by the Hellfire Club, turns into Dark Phoenix and is saved by Xavier. They are captured by the Shi’ar and duel for Jean’s life against the Imperial Guard. However, when Jean turns into Phoenix again, her bond with Wolverine is not enough to stabilize her. She turns Dark Phoenix and destroys the entire universe.

Stryfe is able to keep them alive but, when Xavier dies, it gives off a psychic backlash and Stryfe loses concentration, which causes Jean Grey and Cyclops to perish on the Moon as well. At the X-Mansion, an uncaring Apocalypse proceeds to slay Storm, Psylocke, Iceman, Archangel, Havok, Beast and Siryn, and injuring Cannonball. Back on the Moon, Wolverine and Bishop are killed by Stryfe and his Dark Riders and Cable is taken captive. While being held captive, Cable has a heart-to-heart with Stryfe but is left unsatisfied when Apocalypse comes calling. Back on Earth, the remaining members of X-Factor, X-Force, Gambit, Rogue, Jubilee and Forge create a new X-Men team. Together, they head to the Moon to destroy Stryfe’s time vortex machine. The X-Men are able to hold their own until Apocalypse takes control and stands triumphant. Before Apocalypse can claim final victory, however, Cable faces off against him. He, too, is losing to Apocalypse until Stryfe helps his brother and tackles Apocalypse into the vortex time machine, destroying the Moon-base. Back on Earth, Cable takes on the leadership role of the X-Men, deciding to follow a hybrid of Xavier’s ideals and his own. (Brief description courtesy of uncannyxmen.net)

The other X-Men always kept it from her. She disappeared before she ever found out.

Jean Luc attempts to stop them but fails. Wolverine comes in at the end of the fight and informs them he has been tailing the two and disagrees with what they are going to do. In Paris, Gambit wakes from a nightmare. The phone rings. Its his father warning him of the X-men coming to find him. At the mansion the remaining X-men decide what to do. Later in Paris, Psylocke makes the first move against Gambit. Angel joins in. Storm arrives with teh rest of the team and breaks up the fight.

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. (Brief description courtesy of uncannyxmen.net)

Fun Facts: Gambit only appears in a group shot during a television flashback.
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.
