Synopsis:	Note: this is part of the Phalanx Covenant crossover.
	Scott, Jean, Wolverine, and Cable fly a DC-3 right into the Phalanx citadel
in the Himalayas. Lang has Psylocke captive, but is secretly rebelling against
the Phalanx, since he realizes they will destroy all life, not just mutants.
	Jean has psi-blasted the team to a nearby ledge, and they climb toward the
Phalanx. Wolverine bickers with Cable, but then makes nice when he realizes how
much Jean cares about him.
	Psylocke lets Lang take control of her; he plans to use her against Hodge,
and then she can free the X-Men.
	When Jean uses her psi power to boost Cable up, Hodge senses it and suspects
Lang. The mutants attack, Wolverine frees Bishop, who frees the other X-Men, who
attack. Hodge orders Psylocke to attack the X-Men, but that was Langıs trigger to
free her from the Phalanxıs control. She gets Jean and Cable to power her up, and
destroys the Phalanxıs psi-net. Lang releases his control of the citadel, it
collapses, and Hodge drags the traitor down with him.
	On the far side of the galaxy, the Phalanx plans a more aggressive attack on

sewers and run into Caliban, who is being chased by the Dark Riders. Much
fighting. Storm vs Hurricane (no contest), Domino vs Lifeforce (a brick luckily
drops on her head), Cable vs Spyne (he follows dadıs advice). Hardrive ports in

finally gets Nate to trust him, while the T-O virus ravages his body. Blaquesmith
takes him away to heal him, leaving Nate with Threnody. Cable gets a telepathic

his own blood, not knowing what the T-O virus will do to him.
	Tremain has become Post, herald of Onslaught, and pounds Cable. Cable figures
out who Onslaught is, but is too weak to warn the X-Men. Post chooses not to kill
him, because he and Onslaught are convinced he is no further threat.

him, then talks to Cable to calm him. Cable sees him as Tyler, then sees a vision
of Tyler by his grave in Kentucky, happy and peaceful in death. He doesnıt blame
Cable and encourages him to keep living.
	The virus reaches Cableıs brain, and his TK goes wild, then stops abruptly.

and refreshed, aided by Franklin.
