Synopsis:	Note: Claremont returns as writer, and six 
months have passed since last iss.
	Jean shows Nathan a secret cavern full of 
treasures, which she found with Xavier before 
the X-Men were founded. She encourages him 
to embrace his life after Apocalypse, and they 
go outside to Venice, during Carnival, and 
waltz. Jean has a vision: her memories of Scott 
interrupted with joker cards. She realizes it's a 
warning from Remy.
	Just then, Hank swoops down on a rope and 
grabs her; he was also summoned to Venice. 
They see Neo Shockwave Riders closing in, 
and battle ensues, with Ororo joining in. 
Nathan gets hit with a psychic whip, and his 
T-O virus goes wild. Jean gets hit with a psi-
shark, which starts eating her memories, and 
she must use the Phoenix force to get rid of it.
	Remy shows up just as the Neo port away, 
defeated. Nathan is worried that Jean may 
become Dark Phoenix again and considers 
psi-blading her, but Hank guesses his 
thoughts and tells him to have more faith.
	One Neo is captured; Jean demands her 
memories back, but he takes poison rather 
than answer questions. Jean enters his mind, 
risking her own life.

Synopsis:	Nathan says Shockwave Riders were 
legendary in his time. Remy has him guard 
their bodies as they go into the psi-plane after 
Jean. She sees a vision of the Neo's land, in 
synch with nature, but now ruined by battle. 
A Neo attacks her, is immune to her psi, and 
beats her in hand-to-hand combat. Then she 
pulls out the Phoenix.
	Remy, Ororo, and Hank arrive, and they are 
attacked by the Neo Lost Souls, who merge 
with them. Meanwhile, Cable is attacked by 
the Shockwave Riders again, but he has 
learned their moves.
	Remy sees his worst moment: the Mutant 
Massacre; Ororo sees villains who have hurt 
her and hers; Hank sees humanity turning 
against him; Jean sees Apocalypse.
	Nathan uses his psimitar to send energy to 
them all, giving up his own advantage against 
the Neo. Remy stops blaming himself and 
laughs; the others also free themselves with 
hope. They all return to the physical world 
and insist they have no quarrel with the Neo, 
who won't listen to reason, and run away to 
fight another day.
	Remy explains that he originally invited them 
all to Venice (last iss.) for a rescue mission. 
Despite some doubts, they agree to help him.

Synopsis:	Ororo flies to Moscow and makes a 
whirlwind suck up Kurasov, so they can chat. 
He's a criminal boss also educated by Achmed 
El-Gibar, and she wants a favor. 
	Two days ago in a ex-KGB research facility: 
the X-Men meet Vazhin, who called in a favor 
from the Thieves Guild. He sends them to 
Sole's trendy nightclub to free Levin. Jean 
disguises them, even reconfiguring their 
minds, except for Hank, who makes a 
spectacle of himself as a distraction, and 
Ororo, who stands by as backup. The security 
system picks up on them anyway, and Sole 
has Sketch draw a new reality and capture 
them. Manacle manacles Ororo, but she 
defeats him, then flees Revenant's images of 
the dead from her past.
	Kurasov goes to Sole, delivering an 
unconscious Storm LMD to him, while the 
real Ororo sneaks in through an airshaft.
	Sole is auctioning off the X-Men, to either 
Voge or Farahd's Neo. Bludgeon and Cudgel 
interrupt Storm's rescue of Levin; she 
thunderbolts 'em, and Sketch takes this 
chance to rebel, redrawing the LMD to have 
machine gun arms, and freeing the X-Men. 
Jean and Nathan telepathically get the 
customers to evacuate; Hank hits Sole's 
pressure points so he releases Kurasov. Remy, 
Ororo, and Hank trick Manacle into weaving 
a thorny cage. Revenant attacks Jean but soon 
vanishes in horror; Sole attacks her, and she 
releases the Phoenix, which inadvertently 
knocks out Nathan.
	The Neo port away with Sole and his thugs, 
including the renegade Neo Galadriel. Levin 
takes charge and covers up the whole thing. 
The slave Sketch is free, and the slaver Voge is 
captured.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	In Moscow, Killian and his pirates shoot men

in limos and kidnap the defense minister, 
Koniev. 
	Levin and Remy sit with Voge, who says 
nothing, obviously waiting for rescue. Vazhin 
determines he's human from an alternate 
earth. Suddenly, Levin aims a gun at Voge and 
pulls the trigger. It's a blank, but enough to 
distract him, while Jean invades his mind.
	But first, she sees Logan, back at the mansion 
and using Cerebro despite the headache it 
causes him. He wants help against the Goth, 
who have stolen much of the team and Salem 
Center (X-Men II:103). She says she's 
investigating similar abductions by Voge, who 
shows up with his Hounds, saying he's an old 
hand at defeating "mentats." He attacks 
Logan; Jean quickly sends him back to his 
body, then realizes who Voge is.
	In Westchester, Kurt and Forge get the 
overloaded Cerebro under control, and Logan 
wakes up swinging. He says that, for a 
moment, he wanted to become a Hound.
	Jean collapses; Nathan goes to the astral plane 
after her and finds Onslaught, then Jean 
inside, then is horrified.
	Koniev demands entry; Vazhin knows him 
well and realizes it's a trap. The X-Men 
prepare, and Killian's Sea Dogs enter, to 
rescue Voge. 
	Nathan realizes he's been purged of the T-O 
virus: even his scars are gone. Ororo sets up a 
hurricane wind, then freezing cold and 
lightning, and Remy takes down Broadside 
and Killian in turn. Ororo's wind stops, and 
Remy gets a psimitar through the chest. 
Nathan has been possessed and felled them 
both.
	Levin plans to kill Voge and flee; Jean wakes 
in Hank's arms and says Nathan is lost. The 
Sea Dogs get to them, shooting Vazhin. Hank 
burst through a wall; they fall and escape into 
the river. 
	Killian and Voge decide to flee the authorities. 
Hank, Jean, and Levin are very wet and very 
mad.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	To stay alive, Remy has made a deal with 
Bloody Bess (X-Men II:104), and she takes the 
X-Men to Madripoor to help abduct slaves.
	Logan, Jean, Rogue, Hank, and Kurt arrive 
from Hong Kong, and they fight their 
teammates.
	Ororo attacks Jean; Nathan uses TK and 
telepathy to hold off Logan; Remy attacks 
Rogue. But Beldame senses they are holding 
back, so she touches Ororo, sending her 
powers out of control, and Bess is able to 
enslave Jean.
	Hank throws Angel onto Bess then dances 
with Piotr. Kurt rapidly ports Beldame around, 
and Neal refuses to attack Rogue, despite his 
slaver collar. Kurt and Hank throw Piotr at 
Betsy, but she instinctively uses her new TK to 
hurl him back.
	Rogue takes her glove off and threatens Remy; 
he tells her to trust him, and she does. But 
Nathan zaps her with his psimitar, she knocks 
Remy's cards loose, and the room collapses. 
Even Logan is knocked out, and Nathan is 
disturbed to realize he enjoyed the battle.
	In their base in caves in China, the Sea Dogs 
are categorizing and assembling their slaves 
for transport. Goth, the head Goth, reneges on 
his promise and enslaves Gambit's team.
	Jean has cast illusions to switch places with 
Beldame. She knocks out a guard, 
telepathically links minds with Forge, and 
instructs Hank to deactivate all the slaver 
collars. Then Betsy creates her psychic katana 
and destroys the slavers' transmat.
	Gambit's team, free of control, attack the Goth 
and Sea Dogs. Neal, Ororo, and Remy try to 
overload Goth with energy, but he blasts them 
all before Remy can throw a card, but Rogue 
quickly absorbs his power, charges the card, 
and blows up Goth.
	The X-Men capture the rest of the villains and 
free the captives. Remy reassures Rogue, who 
feels bad about killing Goth.
	Note: previews of Ultimate Spider-Man and 
Ultimate X-Men follow.

	Letters: Richard Starkings & Comicraft's Saida
	Colors: Richard Isanove

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Remy takes the team dancing in his favorite 
jazz club in New Orleans. Nathan isn't into it: 
he thinks mutants should keep a lower profile. 
Remy is suspicious of him, saying his attitude 
changed in Moscow (iss. 383). Jean and 
Nathan both miss Scott, whose body was 
never recovered. 
	Jean gets a telepathic call from Lee Forrester, 
captain of the fishing trawler Arcadia, who 
has had brief romances with Scott (iss. 144), 
Magneto (iss. 148), and Nathan (Cable 12-
14). She is now caught in Hurricane Sam, so 
Ororo takes Nathan and Rogue to rescue her.
	Remy hints to Rogue to be careful of Nathan, 
but she just gets frustrated with his obscurity.
	An Air National Guard plane in the storm gets 
hit by lightning, and Ororo is knocked out by 
flying debris. Rogue has Nathan continue to 
Lee's ship while she swoops down and catches 
her, then gets hit by a wave and is forced to 
steal part of Ororo's power so she can make it 
to the Arcadia.
	The storm breaks the windows in the ship's 
wheelhouse, and Nathan uses his TK to keep 
out the sea and breaks off his telepathic link to 
Jean, who has been monitoring with Hank 
and Remy. Rogue holds up the mast until the 
crew can weld it in place and announces that 
they are mutants and X-Men.
	Nathan telepathically projects to the damaged 
plane to guide them toward the ship. Rogue 
checks on Ororo, thankful that the X-Men 
have taught her to hope rather than despair, 
then flies and catches the plane, while Nathan 
makes a TK tube so the flight crew can slide 
down to the ship.
	Ororo recovers and says their only hope is to 
get to the hurricane's eye, so she, Rogue, and 
Nathan use their powers to cut through the 
worst of the storm.
	Rogue, pushing the ship, gets caught in the 
undertow and is in danger of drowning when 
she sees a light and goes toward it. She thinks 
she sees Scott, but it is Nathan. She thanks 
him, and he hints that he saw Scott, too. 
Rogue's hopes are raised.
	They make it to the eye. Nathan points out to 
Rogue that they still need to lift the trawler up 
and over the storm to safety. "Piece o' cake, 
Sugah."

	Editor-in-Chief: Joe Quesada
Synopsis:	Note: this is part of the Maximum Security 
crossover.
	Years ago and light-years away, the D'Bari 
solar system was destroyed (iss. 135, Jul-80) 
by Dark Phoenix, who had replaced Jean, 
wanting to experience humanity.
	Today, Jean and Hank are shopping in a 
market in New Orleans, where the X-Men are 
recuperating in a secret hospital. Ross, regent 
of Wakanda, and Milaje fly in to see Ororo, 
and she goes with them: she has a private 
history with the Black Panther. Jean does a 
light psi-scan to make sure it's safe; Hank 
worries about the potential for mutants to 
abuse their powers.
	The airmen thank the X-Men for rescuing 
them (last iss.), and Forrester sympathizes 
with Jean for the loss of Scott. But both Rogue 
and now Jean have sensed that he is still alive.
	In space, Lilandra is aboard the Starjammer. 
Xavier telepathically projects himself there, 
and Lilandra asks for his help finding 
Deathbird. He is angry that Earth has been 
made a dumping ground for intergalactic 
criminals, but Lilandra says Earth's influence 
is disproportionate, and the galaxy wants it 
stopped. She had to avoid civil war, but she 
sent Cerise (ex-member of Excalibur) to warn 
the X-Men.
	Mandroids attack the hospital; Hank 
recognizes their armor is out of date, but Jean 
says they have advanced psi-shielding, so she 
can't tell what they're after. She and Nathan 
lead the battle away from the hospital and 
into a warehouse. Rogue touches a soldier and 
learns he is a diversion: the real objective is 
Jean. Jean and Nathan are ambushed, and she 
is captured. She attacks Webwing on the psi-
plane; it retreats in horror when it sees the 
Phoenix sign. Star Hammer blasts Jean, and 
she barely holds on. Nathan throws his 
psimitar at C'Cll and B'Nee, and then the other 
X-Men arrive. Rogue recognizes their foes as 
court-martialed Imperial Guard, who say they 
have been exiled to Earth. 
	Jean tries to attack Star Hammer on the psi-
plane, but she is overwhelmed with images of 
the D'Bari home world burning. Jean denies it 
was her, but Star Hammer insists on 
retribution and blasts her. He is the last 
D'Bari, and Jean has let him think he killed 
her.
	The X-Men clean up the mess. Jean says she is 
responsible for Dark Phoenix because she let it 
merge with her. She plans to set things right.
	The X-Men realize Earth has become a prison 
planet. Jean realizes Scott may be alive.

Synopsis:	St. Madeleine's school in Holyoke, TN. Amy 
and Penny are friends. In the schoolyard on 
Thanksgiving, Penny gets shot. Then a lot of 
students get shot. The gunman confronts Amy, 
who says she's not afraid. He shoots her in the 
head twice. She lives, but she's blind and 
crippled. The doctors say she could walk 
again, but she's too angry to try. 
	A few days later, a firetruck driver suddenly 
goes blind and crashes. In Westchester, Xavier 
wakes, sensing something. Neither Nathan nor 
Cerebro can detect it, but hundreds of people 
have been rendered blind temporarily.
	Xavier goes to Amy's house, where she sits 
alone in her room, ignoring a party. She 
senses him telepathically, and he touches her, 
showing her his memories of his own 
recuperation, when he was first paralyzed 
(iss. 20, -1). It didn't work for him, but it 
could for her. He offers to train her body and 
her incipient telepathy. She agrees, trains 
hard, and is able to walk with crutches. 
Xavier has Nathan pick him up.
	The gunman was another student, Fullerton-
Smith, and he goes on trial, pleading insanity. 
Amy testifies. The defence counsel questions 
the extent of her injuries. Angered, she makes 
everyone in the room go blind and feel what 
it's like to be shot. She grabs the bailiff's gun 
and points it at Fullerton-Smith.
	Xavier freezes everyone's minds and tells Amy 
this isn't the way: she has let her anger carry 
her away, like Fullerton-Smith did. Authority 
must be respected, even when it's not right. 
He says abusers rarely understand the pain 
they cause, and now at least Fullerton-Smith 
does. It's not enough, but she can't let rage 
consume her. 
	Amy stays to suffer the consequences for her 
own behavior. Xavier releases the room and 
goes home with Nathan. He is impressed with 
her.

Synopsis:	Note: for a previous "Dream's End," see iss.

372.
	Kelly gives a campaign speech on the steps of 
the Lincoln Memorial, equating the end of 
slavery with that of the mutant threat. 
Mutants around the world watch on 
television, with anger and fear. Mystique, in 
Glasgow, plans another assassination attempt.
	Off the Hebrides, a soldier on the yacht 
Divinity tries to escape by helicopter, but 
Sabretooth stops him, with Toad at his side. 
Mystique has killed and replaced Phillips's 
wife; he is the head of all the Hellfire Clubs. 
She says they were testing a human-only 
strain of the Legacy Virus, and Phillips, still 
living, is therefore a mutant. She flies the 
helicopter away as the yacht explodes.
	The X-Men train in the Danger Room. Bishop, 
recently returned, is distracted by a simulation 
of Fitzroy. Jean and Nathan are sympathetic; 
Xavier is not: he needs him focused on 
immediate problems. Logan and Rogue play 
hide-and-seek on the grounds instead of 
attending Xavier's conference, in which he 
briefs them on Mystique. He has planted 
Nathan in Kelly's inner circle to guard him. 
	Logan finds Rogue manifesting Ororo's 
powers and with claws in her hands. He 
prompts her to retract the claws so the 
wounds can heal. 
	Mystique impersonates Moira on Muir, but 
Rahne sees through it, tussles with Sabretooth 
and bites him, then runs off to call the X-Men.
	Rogue is randomly manifesting powers of 
mutants she has touched; her skin becomes 
metal like Piotr, and blue like Kurt, and her 
eyes blast like Scott (but she can control it). 
Bishop grabs her, trying to absorb her energy, 
but is quickly overloaded. Jean and Xavier 
arrive to help order her mind. She wakes, 
saying Mystique is on Muir. Xavier tries to 
mind link with Moira, but no luck. Rogue 
grabs Logan and Bishop and flies there.
	Nathan observes Kelly's speech at Faneuil 
Hall, Boston. Blob crashes the party.
	Muir Island blows up (cf. X-Factor 69). 
	Note: the story continues in Cable 87.

	Asst. Editor: Pete Franco
	Editor: Mark Powers
	Editor-in-Chief: Joe Quesada
Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after X-Men II:108.
	Xavier works out, swinging on rings, 
swimming in the pool, and thinking about 
recent set-backs: Moira and Sen. Kelly 
murdered; a young mutant in Texas, Serafina 
Montoya, also murdered; Rogue's power 
dangerously mutated; Cecelia addicted to 
Rave. 
	Moira had been buried by family and friends 
in Scotland; Kelly with honors in Arlington 
National Cemetery. 
	Xavier remembers meeting Moira Kinross, at 
Oxford at a lecture by a brilliant geneticist 
whose mind Xavier couldn't read (Milbury, 
perhaps?). Xavier was already bald; Moira 
was dating a Royal Marine, Joe MacTaggert 
(here misspelled MacTaggart), but she invited 
Xavier to ride motorcycles with them to 
Devon for the weekend. Xavier sensed she 
was attracted to him and Joe wanted to punch 
him. He went, more interested in standing up 
to a bully than in getting the girl. Moira told 
him she's attracted to Joe's recklessness.
	In a local pub, Joe started making out with 
Moira, getting them kicked out. She tosses 
Xavier the keys to her bike, and he stays, but 
hears a telepathic warning. He raced the bike 
through a storm and found Joe with his 
crashed bike, wounded but all right. He found 
Moira telepathically, they instantly fell in love, 
and she broke up with Joe.
	In the Danger Room, Cecelia hallucinates and 
rages as she goes through withdrawal. Kurt 
teleports himself, Neal, and Betsy out of the 
way when her force field spikes crash through 
the control room window. Betsy tries to 
contain her with TK and calls Xavier.
	Xavier remembers first talking to Cecelia. She 
didn't want to be a mutant, and he said there's 
no choice, like being a Puerto Rican woman. 
He asked her why she became a doctor: her 
father was shot dead in front of her and she 
couldn't help him. She asked him why he 
started the X-Men: he remembers the war 
(now looking more like Vietnam than Korea).
	Xavier enlisted to prove his manliness to Joe 
and worked in search and rescue, becoming a 
legend and receiving the nickname "The Good 
Shepherd." Moira sent him a Dear John 
(different from the "someone like me" one in 
iss. 309) a month before their wedding. On 
his next mission, Xavier tripped a land mine. 
He lay there, wounded in body and heart, 
then got up and completed his rescue mission. 
Ever since, he has lived for the futures of 
others.
	Rogue takes Logan to snoop in Kitty's room 
(MIA since X-Men II:100). They see her photo 
collection of dead friends, and Rogue says 
Kitty left her a letter telling her about 
Destiny's diary, volume 7 of 13. They read 
and find themselves in it, then see Remy trying 
to kill Mystique in the infirmary of the Federal 
super-hero prison on Long Island. 
	Ororo sneaks in as well and stops him. 
Mystique, speaking around the tube in her 
mouth, says their fate is sealed. At age 13, 
Destiny's power manifested, and she 
compulsively wrote 13 cryptic diaries that 
year. When she finished, she was blind. She 
and Mystique spent years trying to decipher 
them, but were unable to change anything.
	Mystique gave the diaries she still had to 
Xavier, to let him play Cassandra for a while. 
Ororo and Remy ask for proof: she tells them 
to ask Logan and Rogue, who have read this 
conversation in the diary.
	The mansion shakes, and Xavier knows it's 
time for him to help Cecelia help herself. He 
enters the Danger Room, and she lashes out at 
him, while Betsy, Kurt, and Hank vainly try to 
protect him. He talks to Cecelia, saying they're 
both doctors (since when is Xavier a medical 
doctor?). He says the drug is an excuse for her 
to lash out: her real fear is of being a mutant. 
She calms down and apologizes; he says, 
"You're not really part of the team until 
you've trashed the Danger Room."
	The dream lives.
	Mini-Rant: "The Good Shepherd" is an 
appellation of Jesus Christ (John 10:11). 
Xavier was Onslaught. 'Nuff said.

Synopsis:	Mystique's manipulation of the Legacy Virus 
helped Moira discover the cure, and Xavier 
read it from her dying mind. Now Hank has it 
all put together, and his triumphal yawp 
rebounds across the grounds. The X-Men 
come running, on alert, but Hank says he has 
the cure, which can be disseminated just like 
the virus: airborne, triggered by the first 
subject's mutant power. Cecelia points out 
that would kill the first subject, so Hank puts 
it away till he can figure a solution. Piotr 
contemplates.
	The others play basketball, with powers, 
saying they should enjoy and not hide them. 
Xavier joins in, manipulating all their minds 
so he can score.
	Piotr uses anesthesia on Cecelia, injects 
himself with the cure, and turns to metal. He 
blames himself for not sending Illyana home 
to safety, and he refuses to wait while others 
die. His energy signature flares, making a 
flash that alerts the X-Men. Cecelia wakes and 
does CPR, but he is gone. 
	Quotations from Giant-Sized X-Men 1, 1975.
	Piotr: "Papa ? what should I do?quot; 
	Nikolai Rasputin: "Do as your heart tell you, 
my son. It will not betray you."
	Extended rant: the Legacy Virus was 
elaborated as a bad practical joke, but instead 
of an ingenious and elegant solution to the 
mind-game, we get lame babble put into 
Hank's mouth. And "Patient Zero" was 
Gordon Lefferts (X-Force 18), with no 
indication he was a mutant. And an 
instantaneous airborne cure is more mystical 
than medical. And Xavier is a telepath, but he 
mistakes Hank's yell for an attack and doesn't 
sense Piotr's state of mind.
	We live in a culture of violence, where many 
children think it's cool to hurt others, with 
words, fists, and sometimes weapons. Piotr 
was a gentle giant: arms of steel but the heart 
of an artist, horrified when forced to kill (iss. 
211). Now he is gone, and Marvel will judge 
only by sales.

Synopsis:	Scott is back, having been merged with 
Apocalypse and presumed dead for months 
(Search for Cyclops LS). He has a new movie-
star haircut, uniform, and motorbike. He 
mourns Piotr's death but respects his decision 
(reader persuasion alert!) He is considering 
his future and has asked his father to meet 
him. They awkwardly avoid hugging and then 
go fishing. 
	Corsair recalls thinking the Starjammers 
could change the Shi'ar Empire. On the lam, 
they went diving for food but were driven off 
by large-toothed sea creatures. He laughs at 
the memory; Scott doesn't get it and continues 
brooding.
	They camp; Corsair asks Scott to use his 
power to start the fire, but he's offended his 
own father doesn't know he has a force beam, 
not a heat ray. Corsair tries to apologize but 
gives up. Scott finally asks him why he didn't 
come back for his kids; Corsair says he was a 
captive and then had responsibilities with the 
Starjammers; Scott says he never cared about 
them; Corsair backhands him. Scott: "Yeah, 
that's a solution." He doesn't want children 
because he's afraid of being a bad father. But 
he went time traveling to raise Nathan 
(Adventures of Cyclops & Phoenix) and again 
asks why Corsair didn't come back.
	Corsair breaks down and admits he was too 
ashamed, unable to protect his family, and he 
thought they were better off without him. He 
apologizes. Scott relents, and they awkwardly 
avoid saying they love each other. Scott recalls 
the last night the family was together, 
camping, and just like then he falls asleep in 
his father's embrace.

Synopsis:	Note: this is Part 1 of Eve of Destruction.
	Magneto's ambassador Cargill is illegally 
captive in the Pentagon; Jean wipes the federal 
agents' minds and frees her.
	Jean-Paul (formerly of Alpha Flight; openly 
gay and Quebecois) is in Philadelphia (as in 
the Tom Hanks movie), signing his book, 
"Born Normal." A man posing as a fan pulls a 
machine gun, but he's not super-fast, so Jean-
Paul turns it round on him. Jean arrives and 
questions his mere celebrity, but he claims to 
be happy.
	In Boston Common, a mob attacks Hector, age 
16, a sick mutant with invisible skin. Jean 
arrives and freezes the mob. She recruits him 
to save a world that hates and fears him.
	Paulie returns to a mafia front in Brooklyn. In 
the Marines he learned he is invulnerable. He 
wants half; the mobsters shoot him, ruining 
his suit, so he beats them up. Jean arrives, 
expresses disgust, and recruits him. They 
drive to the mansion just as Leyu flies in. She's 
Shiro's little sister and is using his Sunfire 
costume; neither Yashida is particularly keen 
on helping the X-Men. Paulie is knocked 
through the door; he has a problem with 
"limp wristed" Jean-Paul, who beats him 
rapid-fire till his nose bleeds. 
	Jean says Magneto has declared war on 
humanity, abducted Xavier and displayed him 
as a symbol of foolish pacifism. Most X-Men 
are gone fishin' (for Destiny's diaries, X-Men 
II:109; X-Treme X-Men), so she needs an 
interim team. Meanwhile, Logan and Scott are 
already in Genosha.
	They need to leave immediately, without 
training, with Cargill agreeing to be their 
guide. The doorbell rings, but the neither 
mansion security nor Jean's telepathy detects 
anyone. She opens the door to find Dazzler, a 
bit worse for wear.
	Note: it was once unacceptable to perform a 
homosexual act; now it is unacceptable to 
criticize it; cf. Isaiah 5:20.

Synopsis:	Note: this is Part 3 of Eve of Destruction.
	Magneto remembers being nursed by Piotr, 
after Xavier shut off his mind (X-Men II:25). 
Piotr wanted him to ignite the faith he once 
had; Magneto now berates Xavier for not 
stopping human attacks on mutants and says 
Piotr achieved in death more than he or 
Xavier ever did. He is slowing the blood to 
Xavier's brain, to keep him captive.
	Jean telepathically trains her interim team in 
the use of their powers; Provenzano is a pig, 
and she puts him in his place. Jean takes 
everyone into Dazzler's memories of the 
Mojoverse, which was overrun by X-Baby 
versions of the AOA. Longshot may be dead.
	The Blackbird lurches forward and breaks 
apart. Jean scrambles to get the team safely to 
the ground, but they are delivered by 
magnetic power to Magda Square. Scott and 
Logan come running, while Lorna helps 
escapees.
	Magneto shows them Xavier; Dazzler uses the 
roar of the crowd to blast him with light, but 
he uses magnetism to deflect it back, 
disintegrating her.
