Synopsis:	Hank double-checks his tests and realizes he

is losing his intellect again; he's not sure he 
can bear that. He leads the team into the dis-
ruption field, which is the doorway to the 
Negative Zone. He falters, not sure what to do 
next; cosmic radiation spikes; Hank's tether 
snaps, and Alex grabs it. They barely get out 
in time.
	Alex decides the team is exhausted and orders 
them on leave for a week. Cap goes to visit the 
Avengers; Bob his family; Ororo and Remy to 
New Orleans to find Forge and Kitty. Hank 
convinces Alex to let him stay and continue 
his research. The rest of the team all find 
themselves in a bar in town: no one really has 
a place to go, so they commiserate, then go 
back to the castle together.
	Alex strolls along the Hudson and meets a 
beautiful woman babysitting her nephew. 
They watch fireworks together; the boy nearly 
falls in the river, and Alex saves him.
	Hank announces his calculations are done, 
and he sends Alex back into the disruption 
field. A shadow passes him in the other direc-
tion, and Alex goes back to help the Six push 
it back, then close the portal. He has decided 
not to go back home.
	For his next trick, Hank cures Bob, then re-
verts to brutishness.

Synopsis:	Town is full of "blood bars," where patrons 
pretend to be vampires. Ororo busts up one, 
looking for "him." She threatens to bite the 
owner, but Remy interrupts with a kick to her 
diaphragm. They fight until she comes to her 
senses. 
	She explains: since the Avengers are no more 
('99 Ann.), Gyrich called upon the Six. A box 
was stolen from the Vault, and he wanted help 
retrieving it, but Alex didn't like being bossed 
around. Ororo sensed something, realized 
what was in the box, and ran off to get it her-
self. Remy followed; she zaps him with light-
ning to keep him out of it.
	The Marauders, somewhat inept, have the box 
in the sewers. Husk tries to open it, but it is 
booby-trapped. Shadows reach out and grab 
it, and the Marauders pursue.
	Ororo gets to a sewer entrance; Remy has re-
covered and demands to accompany her, de-
spite her warnings and his bad memories of 
the place. They get to the Marauders, who are 
ineffectively fighting shadows. Ororo's blood-
lust rises, and Remy has to keep her from the 
kids. She tries to get him to feast on them with 
her, but he throws cards and knocks the box 
in the sewer, removing its influence. 
	The Marauders leave; Ororo says Dracula is 
in the box, and they plan to go after him, but 
shadows surround them, saying Remy has to 
pay for his crimes against the Outcasts.
	Downstream, a wino opens the box, and 
Dracula rises.

Synopsis:	Ororo remembers flying free in the daylight,

but now she is a vampire. At least her claus-
trophobia is gone.
	She wakes in the sewers, unsure how she got 
there. Dagger, the leader of the Outcasts, re-
veals herself. Remy has already been tried and 
bound to a cross for his crimes, scheduled for 
execution at dawn. Ororo challenges Dagger 
to a dual.
	At the castle, Alex broods over his past life in 
X-Factor (mistaken here for X-Force) and 
waits with Jean for the rest of the team to re-
turn. He has some trouble relating to her, 
having known another Jean and two Maddies. 
Hank, Bob, and Cap join them, and a holo-
graphic projection of Hank (intelligent and in 
human form, and with the middle name Fran-
cis) shows up as well.
	The Marauders try to hide from their boss, 
and someone accosts them.
	Ororo prepares for battle as the sun rises. She 
has to fight Dagger without getting burnt, and 
before sunlight falls on Remy. She spars with 
Dagger and fells her, and as she goes to free 
Remy, Dagger impales herself. Ororo and 
Remy consider waiting for the sun to kill 
them, too, but the Six arrive, and Bob ices 
over the window grille.
	Dagger isn't dead, but she asks Ororo to finish 
her. She is actually Cloak and Dagger, 
merged, half-suicidal. The Outcasts take them 
back.
	Hank has a serum to let vampires walk in the 
daylight and squelch their bloodlust. Ororo 
and Remy are free to roam.
	Outside the city, Dracula rises.

Synopsis:	In the Pacific Northwest, armed men chase 
Logan through a snowstorm, saying he killed 
someone's bull. He outsmarts them and es-
capes; they run into Creed, who kills them all 
and goes after Logan.
	Jean has a dream of the Six lying dead in the 
snow. She sees Logan and wakes up with a 
start: he is supposed to be dead.
	Alex gets the rest of the team to train, sur-
prised they never did before. Jean walks right 
into it, and Hank knocks her out of the way of 
a battle droid. She is distraught from her 
nightmare and says they have to help Logan.
	He, running on instinct, breaks into a house 
and its refrigerator. A little girl, Mari, finds 
him and asks if he's her dead father; he re-
members fighting Creed and lying in a lab 
with him and Wild Child, the scientists saying 
he has a family. 
	He smells Creed coming and leaves; Mariko 
wakes and sees his claw marks. Creed catches 
him near the house, saying "they" sent him to 
bring Logan back. They fight, damaging a 
nearby gas pump, and Logan scrapes his 
claws along the ground to cause sparks and 
burn Creed alive.
	The Six arrive; Logan recognizes Jean and col-
lapses into her arms. Later, Mariko is packing 
to leave, when Creed, horribly burnt, rings the 
doorbell.

Synopsis:	Logan works out against robots that he pro-
grammed. His feral state has passed, but Alex 
and Jean are worried it might return. She tries 
to tell him gently, but Hudson interrupts. He is 
more machine than man, having been evis-
cerated by Logan, whom he brought in from 
the wilderness as a weapon for the Canadian 
government. Jean telekinetically stops Logan 
from finishing the job, while Hudson says they 
need to rescue Mariko and the children.
	Wild Child is already tracking them and finds 
Mari. Sabretooth, horribly burnt, finds him 
and slashes away. He slashes at Alex and 
punches Jean. Logan finds his children, Mari 
and Brian, but Alex tells him it was a set-up: 
Sabretooth has Jean. He also has Mariko and 
gives Logan the choice of which one dies.
	He realizes he's burning: Alex has been gener-
ating a low-level plasma field and is 
incinerating him from the inside. But Logan 
wants the killing stroke and beheads him.
	Before they can get away, Hudson returns 
with Canadian troops, betraying Logan again.

Iron Man appears and blasts them, and the 
rest of the Avengers are nearby to prevent 
them crossing the border.
	Logan gets Alex to promise to take his family 
to safety, while he provides a distraction for 
Dept. H.
 	Ororo negotiates with the Black Widow, who 
is angry at Cap for abandoning the team, 
nearly causing their deaths. She demands the 
Six follow international law; Ororo apologizes 
but then calls down lightning. Cap hesitates 
while his old and new teams start to fight.
	Logan fights a Super Soldier and loses, so Alex 
and Jean come to his rescue, distracting the 
soldier long enough for Logan to impale him. 
Three mutants to stop one Super Soldier,

	They get to the border and find both the Six

Synopsis:	Within Earth's fiery core a being sleeps; he

recently came from beyond and gathered he-
roes for a secret war. 
	Dept. H wants Logan back, and they're pre-
pared to go to war. Cap has an agonizing 
transformation, under compulsion to destroy 
enemies of America. He was the sole U.S. ex-
periment using stolen Super Soldier technol-

up. He is now massively bulked and tele-
pathic; Dept. H attacks him and loses, and his

unstoppable, insane, and killing everyone in 
sight. Alex tells Ororo to get the Six to safety, 
while he goes to kill Cap.

planet and shatter the moon. Cap is left on his 
back in a ruined landscape, and the Beyonder

Manhattan and is acclaimed as savior and de-
nounced as Satan. Daredevil and the Lethal 
Legion attack; the Beyonder, bored, blow eve-
ryone up.
	Magneto forms a magnetic bubble and trans-
ports the X-Men down from the shattered

	The Six are fighting Dracula to get Alex free 
of him; the Beyonder's arrival fells them all 
telepathically. Alex is near death, so Ororo 
gets him to the med lab, while Logan tends to 
his family. Dracula has misted away but lurks 
about, waiting for his chance to attack. Both 
he and the Beyonder sense that Alex is the 
key; the Beyonder sits above Manhattan, im-
patiently probing minds and tossing bodies, 
looking for his quarry. 
	The X-Men and Dr. Strange arrive at the cas-
tle. Scotty worries about his father and 
reaches into his mind to wake him up.

ous super-powered beings with a wave of his 
hand.

Synopsis:	While the Beyonder rages, Magneto cradles 
his dying daughter Polaris; she had come to 
tell him that Dracula killed all the X-Men. 
Strange stops Magneto from lashing out im-
pulsively.
	Scotty says his "daddy" Alex saved everyone 
but Elektra, but that's okay because no one is 
ever gone forever. Alex wakes, disoriented; 
Scotty says Dracula bit him, and Strange says 
he's their only chance at stopping the Beyon-
der. But they he realizes the Beyonder wants 
them both, as the nexus of all realities (see '99 
Ann.). He ports them away, before the Beyon-
der can break through into the castle. Dracula 
offers to help him find them.
	Magneto has built a citadel at the magnetic 
South Pole, where his powers are magnified. 
He restrains Alex from confronting the Be-
yonder prematurely; Strange says he is not 
their real enemy, since he was destroyed in 
the second Secret War. He summons villains 
Richards, Xavier, Warren, and Mordo to assist 
them. Mordo uses his third eye and sees the 
nexus resides in Alex now.
	Dracula takes the Beyonder to Washington, 
where Doom and the Inhumans attack them. 
The Beyonder has agreed to let Dracula drain 
them, so he will lead him to Ororo, and hence 
Alex. Black Bolt's dying word destroys the 
Washington Monument. 
	Alex is finally told that the remnants of Mad-
die and the Goblin Queen merged with the 
Beyonder. She and Dracula arrive, and Havok 
blasts her, telling her to show her true self, so 
she rips apart and discards the Beyonder's 
corpse.
	Dracula knocks out Richards and goes to feast 
on the super-being he has wired into machin-
ery to defeat the Beyonder. Ororo puts a stake 
through his heart.
	Maddie reminds Alex how bad his life was in 
his home universe, but he blasts her. She 
blasts back, taking the battle to the astral 
plane and saying he has wasted his potential 
in self-pity. Alex taps into the power of 
Strange, Mordo, and Xavier, to absorb the 
Goblin Queen into the nexus, erasing her. 
Maddie is returned to her universe, now 
guardian of the nexus, and Scotty embraces 
her.
	Alex falls through darkness between death 
and life, and the series ends.
