Comic Summary: The Westchester Wars have been over for some time, and the X-Men Cyclops, Wolverine, Jean Grey, Storm, Gambit, Rogue and Jubilee have gone to the mall to use the laser tag facilities for a training exercise. Jubilee emerges as the winner of this game, but Wolverine gets into an argument with Cyclops, and leaves the others, just as several Sentinels arrive in the mall. One of the Sentinels goes after Wolverine who is in a clothing store. Jean tries to calm the crowds and asks them to leave in an orderly manner while the other X-Men battle the Sentinels. Wolverine soon joins them, and the Sentinels are taken out. Baron of Westchester, Robert Kelly, arrives on a carriage drawn by Warwolves. Baron Kelly apologies about the Sentinels and explains they were free-range, and not detectable as part of the Sentinel dismantling project. Wolverine argues with Baron Kelly, who warns Wolverine that he will be looking at a trip to Clear Mountain. The X-Men hadn't heard of Clear Mountain. Baron Kelly reminds the X-Men about the war between the X-Men and Magneto and his Brotherhood, and how Magneto's death left Westchester with an abundance of mutants who knew nothing but violence as a way of life, so the Bureau of Super-Powers set up Clear Mountain, a haven for wayward mutants with a desire for a new path in life. Back at the X-Mansion, the X-Men fill the Beast and Professor X in about Clear Mountain, and after much discussion, Professor X agrees that a visit is in order. Cyclops is tense because he is worried that with Clear Mountain, the X-Men might not be needed anymore, and then the X-Men won't need Cyclops. He informs the Professor that after this mission he is leaving the X-Men. The next morning, the X-Men set off for Clear Mountain and en route Cyclops asks Jean to go on vacation with him when the mission is over. Wolverine is not happy about this. Arriving at Clear Mountain, the X-Men are greeted by its Director, Cassandra Nova, some pioneer in mutant psychology. Cassandra takes the X-Men on a tour of the facility where they find over a dozen mutants who once waged war with each other now living together peacefully as part of their rehabilitation. Jean suffers from a sudden psychic black out, but the other X-Men's powers are okay. Wolverine suddenly smells Sabretooth and attacks his nemesis, until, bizarrely, Sabretooth seems reasonable, and talks to Wolverine, asking to be friends. Back at the X-Mansion, the Professor uses Cerebro to take a look at what is going at Clear Mountain, but on the Astral Plane, he encounters Cassandra Nova, who is not happy to see him, and warns him to watch his step as her mouth opens wide. Xavier's psychic armor materializes and they battle each other, with Xavier witnessing a flashback where a gang called the Shadow Kings entered the ruins of Apocalypse's temple and discovered some sort of clones of Charles himself, while the Shadow King emerged from one of the gang members, and seemingly merged with one of the clones, who woke, and killed the gang. The Shadow Queen, as Cassandra dubs herself, then invades the Professor's mind and at the X-Mansion, his motionless body collapses. As Cassandra continues on the tour with the X-Men, she explains the stages of Clear Mountain's treatment program, with phase four being the Mind Field. She offers to give the X-Men a taste of the Mind Field. Wolverine thinks that something is off around this place, and Cyclops agrees. The X-Men agree to undergo the Mine Field treatment, but Jubilee is not allowed due to her age. Cassandra's associates Miles and Rachel take Jubilee away. The X-Men are placed in pods and suddenly find themselves trapped, as Cassandra prepares to begin the Mine Field process on them!

Wolverine knows that something strange is going on, but Cassandra wins him over, and Wolverine embraces all of his various selves, becoming approved by the Bureau of Super-Powers. Cassandra next visits Storm, who also sees various versions of herself, before Cassandra tells her that she is going to lead the New X-Men.

Storm then learns about the Shadow King being inside Cassandra Nova. Storm learns about the Shadow King's return via the gang called the Shadow Kings and is tormented by Cassandra's plans for the future. Storm uses her powers to break free of the container she was placed in and challenges Cassandra Nova. But Nova takes Storm out, and rejects her for the BSP. Rogue and Gambit share a Mind Field.

Rogue them promises that one day they will be engaged to be married, and Cassandra gives them BSP approval. Next up is the Beast, who only has a brief conversation with Cassandra before she rejects him for the BSP. Meanwhile, Jubilee is playing a video game as she was not allowed to undergo the Mine Field process. She sees a projection of a small pink-skinned body who seems to be trying to get her to follow him. Jubilee loses her guards and chases after him. The projection flies through a locked door and Jubilee breaks into the room, where she finds an assortment of odd mutants in the shadows, including one called Chamber. Jubilee is slightly nervous around some of them, such as Feral, before the Beast is thrown into the room. Jubilee is pleased to see him, and Chamber takes the two of them into another part of the area they are locked in, where the Rej-X, as they are known, as forced to strip Sentinels for parts. Finally, at the X-Mansion, X-Force arrives! Cable, Domino, Archangel, Bishop, Deadpool and Psylocke explore the grounds after receiving a psychic distress call from Xavier but when they find Xavier they are horrified to discover he is dead!

Fun Facts: This title was released as a digital infinity title shortly before print. Released as two different titles online, volumes 5 and 6.
Comic Summary: At the X-Mansion, X-Force discover that Professor X is still alive, and that the X-Men went to Clear Mountain Institute, but haven't checked in since. X-Force teleport to Clear Mountain, except for Psylocke, who remains to look after Xavier's body and mind. To do so, she enters the Astral Plane. In the Mind Field, Cassandra Nova is trying to convince Jean Grey to unleash the Phoenix within her, so she can devour the excess energy. Jean resists Cassandra's advances, until the villainess is close enough for Cyclops to attack her. The Mind Field changes, as Cassandra appears as the Watcher and the Imperial Guard, and battles Cyclops after imprisoning Jean Grey. As Cassandra continues to try and get Jean to give up her power, the Mind Field changes again and again, as Cassandra appears to them as Sinister, Stryfe and Apocalypse. Jean eventually changes into the White Phoenix. Psylocke reaches the Mind Field and finds remnants of the X-Men, before locating Cyclops and Jean Grey. Psylocke seems to have some feelings for Cyclops, but nevertheless she frees Jean from Cassandra's grasp, and shoves a psi-knife into Cassandra. X-Force reach Clear Mountain Institute, and are confronted by Trevor Fitzroy who reminds them that the war is over. But Cable isn't convinced, and a battle begins. Cassandra, shoved from the Mind Field by Psylocke, turns her attention to the battle, as X-Force have engaged her guards. Jubilee, the Beast and the Rej-X have started to reconfigure the defensive systems of the Sentinels that Cassandra has stockpiled, when Deadpool locates them all. Psylocke and Xavier return to their bodies, and Charles informs Psylocke that they have to get to Baron Kelly, as he knows Cassandra is planning to assassinate him. At the X-Museum, dedicated to the X-Men after the Westchester Wars, Baron Kelly gives a speech, before being taken aside by his guard, who is soon revealed to by Psylocke in disguise. Xavier is with her, but when they warn Baron Kelly that he is in danger, who instructs his actual guards to take them into custody after he learned that Clear Mountain has been attacked by mutant terrorists. X-Force have taken out most of the guards, and Jubilee, Beast and the Rej-X have joined up with them. Cassandra confronts them all, and introduces her New X-Men Logan, Remy and Anna Marie. She instructs X-Force and the others to run. Back in the Mind Field, Jean and Cyclops find Storm, who is able to use her control over lightning to reach out through the Mind Field and strike the stasis chambers that the three of them are being held captive in. The three New X-Men are acting very strangely thanks to Cassandra's brainwashing of them. She warns X-Force that in ten minutes Cable will be the man who killed Baron Kelly, and suggests to the Rej-X that they could become Thors if they handed Cable in to Doom. The mutants battle each other, until Storm, Jean and Cyclops arrive, and Storm gives a speech that unites the mutants. At the X-Museum, Xavier and Psylocke are handcuffed and led past people who have come to visit the museum, when the multi-headed, multi-limbed Sentinel arrives to terminate Baron Kelly!

Fun Facts: This title was released as a digital infinity title shortly before print. Released as two different titles online, volumes 7 and 8.
Comic Summary: The New X-Men and Cassandra have arrived at the X-Museum along with the X-Sentinel which has set its sight on Baron Kelly. The New X-Men are assisting to save civilians, while Baron Kelly is confused as to why Psylocke is trying to help him. X-Force and several other mutants from Clear Mountain, all under Storm's command, are also on hand to engage the X-Sentinel. Wolverine panics when he is unable to reach a woman who is trapped upside down in her car. She asks him to use his claws, but he can't. However when she asks him to get Cyclops, this snaps Wolverine out of his brainwashing, and he rescues her. Rogue and Gambit discuss their wedding plans in the middle of the battle, while Storm and her forces struggle against the X-Sentinel. Cable and Psylocke get Baron Kelly safely to the Blackbird, where Jean and Cyclops are waiting for them along with Cassandra. The Shadow King within Cassandra then cofnronts Jean, while the X-Sentinel takes out Gambit. Rogue realizes she can't help him as she can't touch him, but Caliban is nearby and he is able to help. When Gambit wakes, he realizes that maybe he and Rogue are not meant to be. Jean manages to weaken Cassandra / the Shadow King, enabling Xavier to confront his foe on the Astral Plane, but the Shadow King seems to throw Xavier out of it. The Shadow King thinks he has won, but Xavier returns, armed with the additional powers of Jean, Psylocke and Cable. As the other mutants continue to battle the X-Sentinel, Cyclops is annoyed that Baron Kelly had the override codes this whole time. He explains that they need to be shot with a laser into the Sentinel. During this discussion, Cassandra, free of the Shadow King's hold, disappears. Jubilee grabs a laser, and starts firing it at the Sentinel, while Xavier finally defeats the Shadow King by trapping him in a psi-gun and firing him away, though the Shadow King warns Xavier that he will haunt him. Jubilee struggles against the X-Sentinel, as its many hands block her laser attacks until Gambit drives a kinetically-charged motorcycle into the X-Sentinel, blowing up its hands. Gambit then kisses a surprised Rogue, while Jubilee strikes the Sentinel with the laser, and the shut-down codes are received. Jubilee wakes in the X-Mansion, where she announces that she finally feels like a full-fledged X-Man. Jean Grey says farewell to Wolverine, as she and Cyclops are going on vacation. Rogue shows Jubilee that there are now students at the school, including Chamber, who appears to be interested in Jubilee. Psylocke and Bishop decide to remain with the X-Men, but Cable and the rest of X-Force, who now count Shatterstar and Feral amongst their number, depart. Cyclops says goodbye to Storm and congratulates her on opening the school. He tells her the X-Men have never been in better hands. Meanwhile, Cassandra is fine, and has taken an interest in a mutant called Joseph, while Baron Kelly meets with Apocalypse and his Horsemen Mystique, Bastion and Exodus. Apocalypse boasts that a future is coming to Westchester where mutant and human alike while tremble at the sound of his name!

A mercenary named Maverick has come to the X-Men with dire threats, and the People's Protectorate is in hot pursuit. They demand the X-Men return Maverick, who they say has stolen information from Russia. Maverick agrees to return with them, and says he has news of a far worse threat, if they will give him 24 hours. Their controller, Airstrike, agrees. Maverick then tells the X-Men there's a threat aimed at them. It seems the Russians, back in World War II, tried to create an answer to Captain America, combining a Russian monster with their science. This went badly, the result placed in battle massacred troops from both sides. The Russians declared it a failure and locked it away. Fast forward fifty years, and the von Strucker children have purchased the creature's prison, and pointed it at the X-Men. Maverick must go, he's got to keep a step ahead of the Russians, but he warns the X-Men: this thing, called Alpha Red, isn't coming... it's already here, somewhere!
