Comic Summary: Cable, along with Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Wolverine of the X-Men, are flying a plane towards Mt. Everest, where the Phalanx has set up their Citadel containing their all-important Womb. The four mutants fly the plane into the fortress as a distraction for their real plan, to get into the Citadel undetected. Inside, Lang has turned traitor and looks to Psylocke for help against the Phalanx. Finally gaining entrance to the Citadel after an arduous climb up the mountain, the three of the four mutants battle their way through an horde of attacking Phalanx. Wolverine heads off to the Womb to free his captured X-Men allies. In the heat of the battle, Hodge senses the X-Men’s escape. His efforts were in vain, though, as the X-Men, now freed, join in the battle against the Phalanx. Psylocke is able to free herself from her assimilation just in time to act as a psi-rod channeling the combined psi-powers of herself, Cable and Jean against the psi-net that had once connected all Phalanx entities across the globe. Sensing that the battle is nearly lost, Hodge absorbs the nests energies from around the world, effectively killing all his Phalanx allies with-in them. He tries to power up the Citadel and the Phalanx with-in with the power that he gained. It was too late for them, though, as Lang seizes his moment and finally lets go of his psi-hold on the Citadel itself, sending it and its occupants into the depths of Mt. Everest. Using all their resources, the X-Men are able to save themselves from the deathly plummet. Though not to be outdone, Hodge stretches forth with the last of his energy. Taking hold of Lang, he drags him into oblivion with him. In another galaxy far away from this one, a techno-organic being senses the loss of the Phalanx. He decides that now is the time for him to take more of an active role in the mission against Earth. (Brief description courtesy of uncannyxmen.net)

Comic Summary: Cable is doubting if joining the X-Men was a right decision. Thinking back to an incident years ago, when he saved a very young Rogue from a few mutant-hating boys who tried to kill her, but then left her behind. He thinks that maybe her life would have been different if he had taken her along. Cable thinks that this was just one of many bad decisions in his life. His thoughts are interrupted by Avalanche, Blob and the Post crashing in on Senator Kelly’s speech. Cable tries his best to protect the senator and telepathically alerts Beast and Gambit, who are on the roof as back-up. At first, the Brotherhood gains the upper hand and Post makes it close to Kelly, but one of his bodyguards turns out to be Colossus, disguised with an image inducer. The tide turns and now the X-Men gain the upper hand, when suddenly Cable recognizes a terminally ill man observing the battle. It’s Pyro, who is dying from the Legacy Virus. He points Cable to there being a fourth Brotherhood member in the female Mastermind and, indeed, she has been altering their perceptions. Cable takes the illusionist out but Post is already close enough to shoot Kelly once and for all. His powers flaring up a final time, Pyro engulfs Post in flame, ending the battle. Before he dies, Pyro urges Senator Kelly to change his anti-mutant views. Impressed by the former villain’s heroic act, Kelly promises that he will try to improve human/mutant relations. While the X-Men silently mourn the loss of life, Cable realizes that Pyro believed more in the X-Men’s dream than he himself, and he really hopes they made a change today. Though, being a soldier at heart, he always expects the worst. (Brief description courtesy of uncannyxmen.net)

Comic Summary: Sabretooth is being hunted by the X-Men, after he left Psylocke critically wounded at the mansion. Caliban is the first to find him but, not being too smart, he is outwitted by Sabretooth and left unconscious in the tunnels. Cyclops and Iceman head to his safehouse and find travel schedules there. As they search the apartment, Creed returns and attacks the two X-Men. Iceman manages to force his retreat and Creed heads into the city. Bobby manages to catch up with him again but Creed uses a hostage to force Iceman to allow him to board a train into Grand Central Station. Unfortunately for Creed, Beast is also on the train and he manages to occupy him in battle until Cyclops and Jean Grey can catch up with them. Once again, though, he slips away and, this time, Archangel tries to stop him. Sabretooth manages to damage one of Warren’s wings, forcing them to crash land in a water tower. The tower explodes and the falling Archangel is frozen in ice by Bobby before he hits the ground. Sabretooth escapes yet again. Jean Grey determines that Creed is actually heading for Massachusetts in order to take out the kids of Generation X, the next generation of X-Men. Jean intercepts him before he boards the Boston train and, along with Cyclops and Beast, they manage to keep Sabretooth down until a chopper lands, carrying Val Cooper. Instead of allowing Creed a final chance of glory, Cyclops blasts him in the forehead. A police officer, thinking he is unconscious or dead, gets too close and Creed grabs his rifle. More police officers open fire on him and Creed goes down hard. He manages one final act of defiance, before he finally gives in to fate. Val Cooper orders his dead body taken away and thanks the X-Men for their good work. At least there was only one casualty, she tells Scott. Unfortunately, he replies, he was the one they were trying to save. (Brief description courtesy of uncannyxmen.net)
