Comic Summary: In a world where the X-Men never came together as a team, familiar characters are warped almost beyond recognition. Residing in Fortress X, these mutants must wage war against a world that fears and hates them just to survive. Mutantkind's final war starts here. If you don't know which side you're on, check your DNA. Gambit, Trance, Rockslide, Frenzy & Cannonball patrolled Fortress X, watching for attacking Exonims & reporting any actives to Magneto. Other mutants remained within the walls of the Fortress, huddled together around a fire reliving stories of survival. Storm snuggled up to Namor to comfort him in exchange for giving up the freedom of the seas to be with her. Nightmare accidentally upset Basilisk by reminding him of his time in Alcatraz. Beserker explained why. The island prison of Alcatraz was used for the incarceration of mutants. The Governor of Alcatraz was Arcade, who took delight in introducing Death Row inmates to their executioner. Basilisk was held completely bound on a gurney. With the flick of a switch, his mask split down the centre. He'd already had his eyelids surgically removed, so he could not contain his blasts & therefore instantly killed the mutants in front of him. As the guards wheeled him back to his cell, he managed to reach the control switch. Willingly opening his mask, Basilisk killed the guards, destroyed his chains, and went after Arcade. After executing as many human guards who tried to stand in his way, Basilisk led Callisto & the liberated mutants out of Alcatraz.

Comic Summary: In North Carolina, a city is under attack by the Brood aliens. Storm’s X-Men team and Captain Marvel are on hand to hold back the aliens after learning of the attack from one of Ulysses' visions. During the battle, Captain Marvel confronts Storm about telling Magneto about the Inhuman Ulysses. Storm explains her reasons, and Captain Marvel asks her to keep an eye on Magneto. In the Savage Land, Psylocke confirms that Nightcrawler has arrived on his own, not at Storm's request. Nightcrawler tells Magneto and his team that he thinks Ulysses is dangerous and Magneto decides that Ulysses could condemn mutants with his visions. Psylocke tells Magneto that they still don't know enough about Ulysses to go making any rash decisions, and that if he wants war with the Inhumans, he will certainly get it if he proceeds carelessly. In New Attilan, Fantomex sneaks through the city during the night, where he comes across Gambit, who was also sneaking about. The men fight, which is overheard by some guards, but Fantomex uses his misdirection power on the guards to make it appear as if there is nothing going on. Gambit defeats Fantomex and takes him with him as he decides that it is time to leave. Gambit thinks that Storm was right to send him here, as Magneto is making his move. Back in the Savage Land, Psylocke goes into one of the jets, where she is confronted by Sabretooth, who asks her if she is going somewhere. Psylocke tells Creed that she knows Mangeto sent Fantomex, but isn't sure if it was as spy or assassin, and that she can't stand by Magneto's side when he is taking actions she doesn't agree with. Sabrerooth doesn't try to stop her, as he figures he is best on Magneto's side. Magneto watches the Blackbird leave with Psylocke, and Monet informs him that Psylocke has been in contact with Storm since the events of Dubai. Magneto knows that they are down one psychic to help protect their minds, but points out that the world is full of psychics.

Comic Summary: Magneto arrives in London, where Rachel Grey has been laying low. They observe a woman and her child laying flowers at a memorial for the woman's husband, a mutant who lost his life to the Terrigen Mists. They notice that the people around them seem more concerned with the emergence of new Inhumans, rather than the loss of mutant life. Magneto tells Rachel that mutants will not benefit from the predictions of Ulysses, and reminds her that the Inhumans are only concerned with the propagation of their species, rather than saving mutants. He asks Rachel to help him so that they can protect the future for mutantkind. In New York, Storm and Medusa meet on neutral territory. Medusa is angry that there were mutants sneaking around New Attilan without her knowledge or permission. Storm tells her that she has every right to be angry, but explains that she sent Gambit to protect her, as she wasn't sure whether Magneto would try anything. Storm points out that with all the pressure Medusa is under, if she had told her in advance, it might have sparked an incident. Medusa reminds Storm that Magneto hates the Inhumans, and she isn't sure she can look the other way about this. Medusa declares that Magneto should have met mutant justice long ago, but will now meet Inhuman justice. Medusa wonders if Storm sympathizes with Magneto. The two women raise their voices at each other as they argue, before calming down, and Medusa agrees to wait until Storm finds out what Magneto wants before she takes any action, but decides to repay Magneto in kind, and sends her own spy to the Savage Land. In War Room X, Woz arrives, and overhears Magneto meeting with M, Sabretooth, Nightcrawler and Rachel Grey. Magneto believes that the bridge between mutant and Inhuman that Storm is creating will crumble, and that they must secure Ulysses from the Inhumans. Rachel asks Magneto if by “securing” Ulysses, means that they will kill him. Monet tells Rachel that it doesn't matter, but Nightcrawler and Rachel are not interesting in killing Ulysses. Sabretooth detects Woz's presence, and they chase him. Woz attempts to teleport away through a mirror, but the X-Men catch him, and Magneto decides that an offensive approach is required. Fantomex is being kept as Gambit's hostage in New York, but Gambit is unaware that EVA is nearby. Storm, Psylocke, Magik and Old Man Logan arrive at the run down apartment. Psylocke and Fantomex argue, as Fantomex reveals that Magneto asked him to scope out New Attilan with strict orders not to engage. Old Man Logan detects trouble outside, and Archangel appears. Nightcrawler teleports in and grabs Fantomex, teleporting back outside where Monet and Sabretooth are waiting. A battle ensues, with Old Man Logan and Sabretooth fighting, Nightcrawler and Psylocke against each other, Storm facing off against Archangel, and Magik against Monet. Gambit starts to fight Fantomex, when suddenly, Rogue appears. Gambit tries to talk to her – but she is actually Mystique, who takes him out. Old Man Logan soon realizes that the other X-Men don't care about rescuing Fantomex – it's just a distraction. Indeed, as Magneto and Rachel Grey arrive at New Attilan.

Comic Summary: In New Attilan, Rachel Grey reminds Magneto that no one is to die while they are here. Magneto takes out some guards and asks Rachel if she has found Ulysses Cain. Rachel reveals his location and informs Magneto that the Inhumans don't hate mutants, but that they are afraid of him. Magneto makes his way to Ulysses' location, where Ulysses announces that he has been expecting Magneto's arrival. In Manhattan, Storm and Magneto's teams of X-Men along with their respective allies do battle with each other, debating Magneto's plan and reasoning. Storm is determined that Magneto is on the wrong path. Nightcrawler helps Storm when she is taken out by Archangel's neurotoxins, and Storm declares that if Magneto kills Ulysses then mutantkind deserves its fate. During the battle, Magik retreats to get reinforcements. Back in New Attilan, Ulysses admits he is scared of Magneto, and talks about his gift. Ulysses explains that he only wanted to help, but his predictions just put people at each other's throats. Ulysses then informs Magneto that this isn't going to turn out the way he thinks – it will be much worse. Back in Manhattan, Storm asks Nightcrawler whose side he will take when Magneto has taken their choice from them. Nightcrawler tells Storm that he will be on the same “side” he has always been on. He prevents Mystique from harming Psylocke, before Magik arrives with reinforcements. The battle is over though, as Magik then teleports all of Storm's team away, suggesting that they focus their efforts on the real threat. Monet informs the rest of Magneto's team that the others are heading to New Attilan, but that they will be too late, as Magneto has likely finished his job. But Magneto is still talking to Ulysses, until he hears a crack of thunder. Ulysses asks Magneto what is going to happen to him, to which Magneto points out that if Ulysses can see the future then he should already know. Ulysses explains that he can only see short term, and shows Magneto visions of X-Man battling X-Man, many of them laying dead. Rachel Grey finds Storm and her team and tells them to stand down, as Magneto has gone, and that his presence has been wiped from the minds of the Inhumans. Psylocke is puzzled as to why Magneto would just leave after all he has been through, and Rachel suspects that Ulysses showed Magneto something. Magneto's X-Men arrive and Rachel goes to tell them that the situation is over. Nearby, Magneto meets with Medusa, who points out that she is within her right to kill Magneto. Magneto tells Medusa that he knows she is unwilling to sacrifice her people today, just as he is. Medusa warns Magneto that if he returns, then it will be as an enemy, and Magneto agrees. Nightcrawler returns to Storm, asking if there is still a place for him on her team, while in the Savage Land, Psylocke returns to Magneto's team and reminds him that they are supposed to be partners, that she isn't his chaperone. Rachel announces that she is leaving, and Magneto asks her to stay close, as the version of the future she knows is still on the horizon.

One of the two women, Gracie Gamble, in the meantime unearths a Venezuelan temple and learns of Synraith’s imminent return. She casts a spell to prevent it, but manages to achieve the opposite. The results manifest in two places, Ravenscroft and the Xavier Institute. In Ravenscroft live several of Gracie’s superpowered siblings, as well as their father Adam, the Clan Destine. They are discussing whether to allow their youngest siblings, Pandora and Rory, to embark on a crime-fighting career. During the discussion, Kay is acting uncommonly nasty towards Walter, the twins’ guardian, leading to a fight between the two of them. Suddenly she gets caught in a trance and tentacles appear form a rift in space to grab Kay. The others try to save her, but Walter can’t as he chooses to save Rory and only the indestructible Adam is drawn into the rift along with Kay. The Destines call their genius brother Newton for help, who manages to pinpoint the teleportation signal, enabling them to follow. However, they have no idea where they will end up. In the meantime at the Xavier Institute, during a training session between Cannonball and Storm the Room seems to malfunction and Wolverine has noticed something odd in the Danger Room. The X-Men call in Forge and Colossus to help examine the Danger Room. Here too a rift appears and tentacles draw in Xavier and Colossus.

Comic Summary: Shadowcat, Gambit and Wolverine are on a mission to retrieve information that was stolen from the X-Men some time back. They head to a military installation in the desert and enter it after taking out several guards. To locate what they want, they split up. Each of them encounters several holographic scenarios, which have them question the truth about some of the X-Men’s history. Gambit sees an alien called Rogue grab the woman he knows to be Rogue and take on her appearance. He then sees Psylocke aboard a shuttle, utilizing the Phoenix Force. He then sees a young Neal Sharra as a mutant-hating youth in Calcutta. Finally, he sees Emma Frost looking after Generation X, but in collusion with Sebastian Shaw and the Hellfire Club. Wolverine’s first scenario shows Beast testing the Legacy Virus on himself in order to find a cure. He next sees Mystique kidnapping a baby that turns out to be a young Kurt Wagner. He moves on to find Mister Sinister creating a clone of Jean Grey, which he intends to place in a cocoon in Jamaica Bay. He moves on to see Kitty Pryde as a baby, being taken in by a member of the Neo. Finally, he witnesses X-Force in Genosha in confrontation with Magneto. Meanwhile, Shadowcat first witnesses Colossus taking part in some nasty business with the Acolytes in outer space. She then watches Gambit making a deal with the Hand on behalf of the Thieves Guild. She then sees a possible link between Onslaught and an old enemy of Professor Xavier’s, Lucifer. After seeing a young Ororo Munroe about to be used as a puppet by the Shadow King, she sees Wolverine in his Weapon X tank, only with Apocalypse as the one who first put adamantium into his body. Eventually, Kitty manages to retrieve the data she came for and, after a run in with several hard light holograms of themselves, the trio depart before the feds arrive. They realize that the scenarios were probably just an attempt by Bastion to mess with their minds, but it’s made them wonder.

The newest Acolyte, Rem-Ram, uses his powers to sneak into Xavier’s head and begins to nudge the man’s dreams towards thinking of Magneto. Eventually, the strain is too much for Xavier, so Rem-Ram links to the minds of Rogue, Gambit and Wolverine and pits them against Magneto, while Xavier watches in hopes that this will prompt some reaction. However, a vicious nightmare in Wolverine’s mind wakes up Xavier, who immediately senses the Acolytes on the school grounds. The X-Men attack, but find themselves taken by surprise by the two new Acolytes, Barnacle and Static.

Xavier turns down the Acolytes and, after they leave, he explains that, while in Rem-Ram’s head, he learned that the Acolytes learned that Magneto returned and wished to know if Joseph was Magneto or not. He sent away the Acolytes so they can follow them on their quest to find Magneto, so the X-Men can learn as well if the master of magnetism is back. Meanwhile, Magneto gathers Amelia Voght and his other loyal Acolytes, to whom he promises action soon. However, he sends Amelia on a special mission to safeguard Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch from the upcoming inferno.

Comic Summary: In Iran the nation’s leader spouts anti-mutant hate speech, before his Sentinel begins to malfunction and wreck havoc. On Utopia, several of the young mutants are following media reports about the chaos spreading across the world, before Wolverine orders them to their rooms, and young mutant Oya reveals to Wolverine that she has made peace with what she is. Cyclops and the White Queen monitor the re-appearance of various Sentinel designs around the world, while the Stepford Cuckoos co-ordinate various X-Men and their allies around the world. At the Hellfire Club, the new twelve year old Black King, Kade Kilgore, hints at how he has orchestrated this anti-mutant hysteria and the re-appearance of the Sentinels, while several of his young friends meet with an alien race as they acquire a Badoon brain slug. The exchange of slug and cash does not go well - and ends with the aliens being killed by the youngsters. Rogue and Shadowcat take down the Sentinel in the far off country and rescue its leader, while other pairings of mutants battle Sentinels in other parts of the world. Wolverine wants to go out into the field, but Cyclops wants him to remain on Utopia, which is when Kid Omega arrives. Wolverine and Cyclops argue about how to deal with Kid Omega, when Commander Rogers contacts them, informing Cyclops that the Avengers are doing what they can to assist, Cyclops tells him that there has been no sign of Kid Omega. Wolverine then takes off, and Cyclops gives Kid Omega a stern warning. The White Queen informs Cyclops that the Mayor has moved the opening of the Mutant History Museum to tonight, and wants some of the X-Men to attend. The event is televised, and Wolverine watches it from a pub somewhere, while the White Queen, Magneto, Colossus, Iceman, Sub-Mariner and several of the young mutants, including Oya, attend. Kade Kilgore and his friends have the Badoon brain slug in their possession, and arrive at the loading dock of the museum, and with some Hellfire Club guards, they burst forth to bring about the new age of Hellfire!

Comic Summary: Wolverine and Cyclops continue to battle each other, before they are separated by the blast of the super Sentinel who looms over Utopia. Wolverine is ready to press the detonator which will blow up Utopia, when the Sentinel grabs him. The Sentinel also grabs Cyclops, before both men break free from it, and continue to fight each other, neither willing to give up, both thinking they know what is right for the X-Men students. Suddenly, Hope, the Lights, Anole and several other young mutants arrive, and battle the Sentinel. Cyclops joins them, before Wolverine discards the detonator and joins them also. With everyone working together, the Sentinel is eventually taken down. Kade Kilgore and his friends watch the battle from a hill at San Francisco, while the X-Men prepare to return home, only no one can reach a contact at Utopia. The White Queen has been freed from the Badoon Brain Slug and finds Cyclops on the ravaged shore of Utopia, where the X-Men students are feeling pleased with their victory. Later, Wolverine and Oya watch the sun rise, and Oya reveals that she is glad she killed the Hellfire Club soldiers, as she can accept she is a monster, and now knows what it means to be an X-Man. Wolverine finds Cyclops and after another lengthy discussion, neither is willing to back down from their position. Wolverine announces that he is leaving Utopia and that whoever wants to come with him is welcome. Cyclops thinks Wolverine is making a huge mistake. Wolverine assures him that he will not try to stop what Cyclops is doing on Utopia, while Cyclops tells Wolverine that they will still be here on Utopia protecting a world that hates and fears them. Cyclops sends some of his team to investigate the Hellfire Club, only they find them all dead. At some sort of beach resort, Kade Kilgore and his young friends celebrate their victory, while Wolverine and some of his supporters, including Oya, arrive at their new home - the ruins of the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters.

Comic Summary: When Magik was to teleport Hope to safety, the Purifiers were prepared for her and fired a weaponized spell that caused her to be kidnapped to Limbo. Learning of this, Colossus demands to be sent after her but Cyclops refuses, informing him that someone else is already going to her rescue, namely Cannonball. Sam Guthrie recruits Dazzler, Gambit and Northstar (who criticizes Sam’s leadership skills), drafts an unwilling Trance and asks Anole and Pixie, both of whom are unwilling which is a problem as Pixie is the only other teleporter able to go to Limbo. However, Anole manages to talk Pixie into going as he shows her that she is a better person than Magik. Reluctantly, Pixie agrees. In theory, the mission is to teleport to Limbo, grab Magik and get out. What actually happens is that they immediately are surrounded by hostile demons and get separated and Gambit succumbs to his Death persona. And elsewhere in Limbo, N’astirh and S’ym are plotting Magik’s destruction.

Comic Summary: In Limbo, Cannonball, Anole, Northstar, Dazzler and Gambit are all separated from each other in their search for Magik, while Pixie and Trance’s astral form remain together. Some demons go in search of Gambit - but instead they find Death - as Gambit in his transformed Death form takes command of the demons. Dazzler is overwhelmed by demons - but Northstar comes to her rescue - though the two are soon confronted by Gambit - who attacks them, and uses his death-power on them, transforming them so that they are like him. Anole battles a flying demon - which almost drops him in a pit of lava, until Cannonball rescues him - but soon they are attacked by Gambit also. Pixie and Trance soon come into contact with N’astirh and S’ym. N’astirh informs Pixie that if she retrieves Magik’s Soulsword, he will give her back the piece of her missing soul. Trance protests, but her astral form fades, and she wakes back on Utopia, while N’astirh tells Pixie that to get the Soulsword, she will need to kill Magik!

Comic Summary: Cannonball and Anole confront Gambit, who is overcome by his Death persona, and their two teammates, Dazzler and Northstar, whom he has already converted. Massively outmatched, Sam grabs Anole and then flees. Meanwhile, N’astirh and Pixie confront the captive Magik. N’astirh offers Pixie her soul back if she brings him Magik’s Soulsword. Illyana spells out this will mean she will die, but figures that won’t bother Pixie. However, Megan surprises them both by attacking N’astirh with her souldagger instead. In turn, N’astirh then turns on her but, at that moment, Gambit and his servants join them and take N’astirh and Pixie captive. When Pixie refuses to join, Gambit plans to kill her, but Cannonball and Anole arrive. Cannonball amazingly holds himself against his teammates while Anole saves Pixie, who in turn tries to help Magik. Illyana tells her she isn’t worth it; she should save herself rather and admits that she hates the New X-Men because she envies their goodness. Pixie nevertheless chooses to help her and, once freed, Magik frees the others, including Gambit, from whom the darkness has receded. Illyana apologizes to Pixie and they prepare to return to Utopia… if there still is a Utopia to return to.

Comic Summary: Wolverine and the astonishing X-Men are tracking AoA Nightcrawler. They soon find his hideaway and discover that he is working with Dark Beast. In San Francisco the two meet and McCoy gives Kurt a special pair of goggles they will use to enter the Dreaming Celestial. After they successfully teleport inside, McCoy operates a machine that creates a portal to the AoA universe. However, before it stabilizes, the machine explodes, just before the X-Men attack. Kurt escapes their clutches and teleports himself and McCoy through the portal. Arriving on New Apocalypse, they find the portal won’t close, which worries McCoy. Kurt is shocked when he learns the X-Men in his world are dead and he teleports away to investigate. He soon runs into Prophet and takes him back to McCoy, whom they find eing arrested by the X-terminators. However, McCoy seems more concerned that the portal won’t close. At that moment, the X-Men come through and grab Kurt. They tell Jean Grey they are taking him back to their world and start to argue, but are interrupted by the arrival of Dazzler and her X-treme X-Men. They too seem very worried about the portal and the fact they saw something inside it when they travelled through. Sage and Xavier work on closing it but it’s too late, as three huge monsters exit the portal. Xavier tries to show them they mean no harm but it’s no use, as one of the monsters vaporizes Xavier and absorbs the energy off him. The monster grows bigger and the three teams brace themselves for a fight.

Comic Summary: As Jean continues to fight the monsters in New Apocalypse, Prophet orders everyone to evacuate to the 616 reality. Dazzler objects to leaving, but Prophet tells her sacrificing the AoA reality is the only way. Nightcrawler begins to teleport everyone back, first taking Harper Simmons and then Sage. However, when he goes to take Iceman, the Dark Beast breaks free of his shackles and goes with them. He is quickly knocked out by Gambit on the other side, but not before jamming a nugget of the Apocalypse seed within Iceman to keep it safe. As Nightcrawler next takes Howlett and Cyclops, Dazzler begs Prophet to come with her but he refuses, saying a captain goes down with the ship. However, the decision is made for him when Jean Grey knocks him out and instructs Dazzler to take him back to her world. Jean goes off to continue her fight as Nightcrawler teleports Dazzler and Prophet away. In the 616 reality, Nightcrawler realizes that if he grabs onto the black swirls in the portal, he can teleport the opening back in on itself. Sage confirms he could close the portal and, before anyone can stop him, he goes. He manages to close it at the cost of his own life. Afterwards, Howlett and Cyclops decide to travel to Greece to collect Hercules from the underworld. Wolverine offers Dazzler a job at the school but she declines, as she needs a bit of time to herself. A few weeks later, Harper meets Prophet on a beach, where they have a drink to remember their old team. Elsewhere, Dazzler creates a holographic image to make sure everyone remembers her fallen teammates.
