Synopsis:	In the ruined mansion in the aftermath of
Onslaught, Logan tries to make Xavier remember his
accomplishments, not just his mistakes.
	In a crater in Central Park, Bastion and Parker
listen to Graydon's presidential campaign speech,
while Jameson and Robertson watch on TV. JJJ senses
Graydon's anti mutant stance is personal and orders an
investigation.
	In the boathouse, Scott blasts his alarm clock; Hank
startles him in the bathroom and gets blasted and
stuck in the bathtub. Scott lifts him out, then Bobby
ices the floor and sends them both reeling back in, so
Scott blasts him.
	Jean is making breakfast; Quicksilver has been
staying with them, recovering from the loss of his
wife and sister. Betsy arrives, and Quicksilver races
around doing chores, so he doesn't appear emotional.
	Bastion walks through the rain beneath a personal
force field and plans to win the genetic war by any
means necessary. In his lab, Harper investigates
Sentinel mutant tracking devices.
	Xavier blames himself for Onslaught, since his great
power means great responsibility. Logan says he should
let the X-Men help: he knows what it's like to be a
loner, but Xavier taught him teamwork.
	Remy shows up, but Rogue has taken Joseph into town
for breakfast. Remy considers changing his name to
James; Bobby ices over Hank's pancakes. Logan comes in
from the rain, unable to get Xavier to join them.
	Note: a preview of Heroes Reborn follows.

Synopsis:	Warren's metal wings have shattered.
Ozymandias finds him lying on the floor. He says he's
a servant of Apocalypse, who deemed Warren worthy of
survival, and Ozymandias now sees why. He says
Warren's transformation (X-Factor 18) has just begun,
and leaves. Warren is in agony, and his natural,
feathered wings burst forth.
	The X-Men are in the Danger Room, recreating their
battles with Magneto, to see how much Joseph
remembers. He looks into the holographic projection of
Magneto's face and sees the rage, but feels nothing
himself. He wonders how the X-Men could trust him,
after he tried to kill them so many times. They insist
that no one is beyond redemption.
	Betsy enters the room by melting out of the shadows,
a new power. She shows them the feather she found in
Warren's loft (X-Men II:57).
	Warren finds himself drawn to a church in Brooklyn.
In the confessional, a sick mutant tries to warn the
priest.
	In San Diego, Jameson listens to Graydon's speech,
realizing he's using fear tactics to get elected.
Bobby and Sam are undercover on Graydon's staff, and
Alverez is the volunteer coordinator.
	The X-Men take Cerebro to find Warren; they arrive in
Brooklyn and see the church on fire and Warren
rescuing the priest. Betsy remarks on his wings; Logan
smells Pyro inside just as a firebird erupts from the
church. Joseph uses fencing to wrap up Pyro, but Logan
boffs him, saying Pyro is dying of the Legacy Virus
and can't control his power.
	Pyro babbles something about an assassination but
gives no specific information, then an avalanche of
earth engulfs and takes him away.
	The priest says Pyro is at peace, at least. Warren
wonders is Apocalypse is manipulating him again.

going to uncover Graydon's story. Without trying to,

	In Falls Edge, Virginia, Mystique considers
assassinating Graydon, her son. She notices Bobby
undercover on Graydon's staff.

life, having discovered that Graydon's parents are
mutants and criminals.
	The Brotherhood attacks JJJ's plane; he recognizes
Alex as the leader of X-Factor, but he says he has
moved on doesn't want JJJ interfering in mutant
issues. Hank gets JJJ out of the way; Scott and Alex
tussle. Alex threatens to blast JJJ; Scott blasts his
brother's antigrav unit, and they fall from the plane,
just like when they were kids.
	Joseph magnetically catches the plane, and when the
Brotherhood's jet fires on him, he blasts it out of
the sky.

rat out his son. Graydon found out anyway and dropped
off Bobby to find him in the woods. He is in the
hospital near death, with Bobby, Ororo, and Remy
keeping watch. 
	Graydon has a chat with Sam, asks about his father,
then breaks his tumbler when Sam asks the same
(because his father is Sabretooth). Jean contacts Sam
telepathically, offering to pull him out, but Sam
wants to stay.
	Mr. Drake wakes up with only Remy in the room and
asks him why they do it. He says they fight rather
than hide, because it's right, same as him sticking up
for his son (X-Men II:58).
	Outside, Graydon's goons observe the clustered
mutants, ready to shoot them. Then Logan shows up.
	On the roof, Ororo comforts Bobby, saying she wishes
she still had her own parents, even if they argued. He
decides to take a leave of absence from the X-Men to
spend time with his father. He tells him he loves him.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	At the Selima Oasis in Sudan, the X-Men aid
Gene Nation against Humanity's Last Stand, who are
using T-O machines called Razors. Boost jumps into
Sam's body, giving him additional power, and the
Razors are pushed back. Ororo calls off the assault so
they can tend the wounded.
	D'Gard and Tether are angry with Ororo for putting
them in this situation (iss. 325) and then not coming
to the rescue until a month after the first attack.
She has no real answer.
	Then the new Brotherhood shows up. Alex and Scott
argue until Ororo and Jean tell them to knock it off.
Alex offers Gene Nation protection from the next
attack force. Ororo wants the help, so she calls a
truce with him.
	Battle ensues; Jean fights alongside Dark Beast, and
Sam saves Fatale. A cliff is shot and rocks fall on
the village; Ororo helps dig them out, suppressing her
claustrophobia, and this heroism impresses D'Gard.
Meanwhile, Razors shoot down the wounded, and Gene
Nation fights back furiously. 
	Dark Beast hacks into the Razors' systems, making
them all fly skyward. All the mutants counter-attack,
Ororo boosted by Boost, and the battle is soon over.
	The mutants debate what to do with their prisoners.
Tether suggests Alex blast them all; Scott warns him
not to, and they duke it out while Ororo is unable to
offer a solution. So Dark Beast blasts all the
prisoners in a mass execution, but faked: actually, he
had Fatale port them all away to his lab.
	Everyone is shocked and angry, but the deed is done.
Gene Nation decides to stay in Africa but reject
Ororo's leadership. Tether and Boost leave with the
Brotherhood. The X-Men promise to get Muir to send
supplies.
	Note: Humanity's Last Stand, responding to mutant
terrorism; Gene Nation, responding the human
oppression; the Brotherhood, using any means necessary
to bring in peace; the X-Men, using non-lethal
violence to bring in peace: each group is
self-justified.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Bastion has Xavier in an abandoned
Hulkbuster base in Nevada, and even Gyrich thinks he's
being too harsh (because he doesn't know he's a
mutant). Bastion says Xavier is responsible for
Onslaught, and plays a videotape of his brutal
interrogation.
	Bastion also has M-9, a little girl created by the
Manite Project, who has been classified as an alpha
mutant. 
	Thysson shows up to observe Xavier; Smith is a mutant
hunter. M-9 makes all the monitors show a children's
show while she walks through walls to visit Xavier.
Her name is Nina, and she just wants to make sure he's
okay and gives him her stuffed bunny Harry.
	Bastion scrambles the base and bursts into Xavier's
cell, furious. Smith restrains Bastion; Bastion has
him confined to a cell. Thysson starts a full analysis
of Xavier; he warns her that his information is
dangerous, that he is there against his will, and that
she can't take his stuffed bunny.
	Gyrich says Nina must be killed. Bastion tells him to
assign it to Smith, who is naturally immune to
telepathy. Nina has been visiting Xavier, who tries to
comfort her despite their circumstances. She tells him
his mental powers are still there, and she offers to
turn them back on, but he freaks and says he's not
ready. He wishes he had a phone; she makes one; he
calls Majcomb. Thysson takes Smith to investigate;
Nina says she has no bad thoughts and reveals herself.
Xavier has given her a crash course to control her
powerful telepathy and says she is devoid of negative
impulses and was probably created in a government lab.
	Alerts sound; Xavier has a hover car, and guards
chase him. This gives Thysson a chance to get Nina out
safely, but then Smith catches them. Xavier and
Thysson are put in cells; Smith has Nina's dead body
in a sack, shows it to Bastion, and tosses it in a
helicopter. The crew realizes the sack is actually
empty, but it's not their concern.
	Thysson tells Xavier she doesn't remember much, but
Smith said he was one of them. Nina's phone reappears;
she and Harry are safe with Majcomb. Smith is a
telepath and showed her how to escape.

Synopsis:	The mutants are in Rockefeller Center; Hank
predicts a White Christmas, then takes Trish to
dinner. Remy goes off alone, angering Rogue, so Joseph
takes her in a carriage ride. Bishop wants to be
alone; Sam needs to shop for his family. 
	In FAO Schwarz, an energy field opens, and Sam
quickly blasts with a saleswoman to get out of the
way. Gladiator grabs his head.
	Joseph uses his power to levitate the carriage above
the city; the driver is not a bigot, and keeps going
downtown, past the offices of Marvel Comics.
	Sam blasts away; then knocks Gladiator out of the
building, away from the shoppers. Gladiator stops them
in mid-blast, in mid-air. Sam can't budge him, so he
grabs him and pulls the other way, bashing them both
into a construction site.
	Joseph has brought the innards of the Z'Noxx chamber
to the top of the World Trade Center. He shows Rogue
that it is a psionic filter, which can keep his mind
shielded, and he kisses her on the forehead. Merry
Christmas.
	Sam knows he's outmatched but realizes Gladiator's
power is fueled by confidence. He takes Gladiator's
best shot without flinching, then punches him into the
ground. The X-Men arrive; Hank congratulates the boy
on redirecting Gladiator's punch into his own kinetic
field.
	Gladiator emerges from the wreckage, apologizing. The
Shi'ar have a crisis, and Lilandra has forbidden him
to act, so he wants the X-Men to go instead. He ports
all away, except Sam.

cruiser, which happens to be out of control. Hank gets
the computer to stabilize the internal environment,
but it stays on its pre-programmed course to a
stargate, through an asteroid field. Remy gets the
team to trust Joseph, who strains his power to the
uttermost, deflecting the asteroids.
	Coming up to the stargate, they take a quick poll and
decide to help the Shi'ar. Meanwhile, in Westchester,
Sam explains to half the team that he lost the other
half.
	Joseph thanks Remy for his support; Hank apologizes
to Trish for getting her involved. She just readies
herself by donning a Shi'ar uniform. Bishop wonders
why he still hasn't made any friends on the team, and
what his purpose is now, after Onslaught. Rogue tells
him things will work out.
	Scott can't contact the Shi'ar. The X-Men consider
going after their teammates, but Ororo suggests
they're more needed on earth.
	The Shi'ar cruiser, after an unusual delay, emerges
from the stargate at the ruins of starstation A'Sura
Tarrel. The X-Men go aboard and find only decaying
corpses: Merry Christmas. Hank notices the power core
has been taken. Trish notices life signs near Bishop:
he finds Deathbird, near death.

Synopsis:	Hank doctors Deathbird, and she comes out of
her coma. Bishop is suspicious of her, the sole
survivor, and she indignantly denies his insinuations.
Joseph and Remy show up, she grabs Bishop's gun and
shoots them. They morphs into their true forms:
Phalanx. She knew they didn't stink like humans.
	The Phalanx have cut right through the Shi'ar empire.
They have captured Remy and Joseph to feed to their
young; they remember the X-Men from their attempt to
conquer Earth (Phalanx Covenant crossover, including
iss. 316-317). Rogue attacks them, only to get herself
infected. Her last human effort is to say she always
loved Remy, who by this time is loose and tries to
free her. He charges a section of Phalanx, and it
retreats before the explosion. 
	On Earth, Bastion has captured Jubilee.
	Hank approaches the Shi'ar homeworld, planning to let
the Phalanx destroy the ship, then coast in the escape
pod, through debris to the main moon. It works, and
Joseph guides the pod to a mining facility. They
question whether they can trust Lilandra, but port
with her to the planet.

at an exploding spaceship, then tours the hall of
statues in Marvel's offices.
	In Annandale-On-Hudson, Jean, age 11, has just been
helped by Xavier after Annie's death (Bizarre
Adventures 27). Her father tucks her in; she goes back
to school tomorrow. She sees a falling star, which
lands in South Dakota. It is Rachel, chasing someone
through time. She finds herself in Trask's lab, three
years before the first Sentinels (iss. 14-15).
	Larry has painful spells of clairvoyance, foreseeing
good and bad mutants. His father Bolivar has made an
amulet to suppress his mutant power. Together, they
build Sentinels, preparing them for the government to
protect humans from mutants.
	Rachel observes, guessing her quarry's plan to change
the past. She herself is tempted to manipulate Larry's
mind, but realizes it's too hazardous (cf. iss.
140-141).
	Sanctity attacks her. Rachel had saved her from the
timestream (after Excalibur 75), but she is insane and
wants to change the past to stop Apocalypse.
	The attack is an illusion; Sanctity is in the lab,
and Bolivar notices her. She is his daughter Tanya,
with the mutant power of time travel, and she warns
him not to build the Sentinels. Rachel intervenes,
stopping and wiping Bolivar's mind. She takes Sanctity
back.
	Outside, Larry sees the evidence of their fight and
realizes mutants are real. Sanctity has secretly
warned Master Mold's programming about the Twelve.

over mistakes made in the choice of partners. She had
taken a bolt meant for Remy and is getting younger
every day. They and Grovel had been allies, until he
betrayed them.
	Maggott tracks Joseph (see X-Men Unlimited 11), gets
threatened by rednecks, and lets his girls feed on
their pickup.
	Joseph and Rogue find Remy, captive, just as he
breaks himself free. Then Nanny shows up, welcoming
Joseph home.

Synopsis:	Joseph recognizes Nanny, who thinks he's
Magneto. Beyond her there are monsters, and since
Nanny can suppress mutant powers (iss. 113), the X-Men
are her captives. Trish observes from a distance, then
runs to find Hank. (Note: Magneto's base is located on
the Filchner Ice Shelf, Weddell Sea, Antarctica.)
	Deathbird has Bishop in restraints. She claims the
X-Men are dead and he is wounded, and she wants him as
her partner in ruling the universe.
	With Rogue's powers negated, old stolen memories
bubble up, and she yells maniacally at Remy, who she
says was working for Essex. (When did Rogue touch
Sabretooth?)
	Joseph tells Nanny he's Magneto and orders her to
release him, but she says his rules are that no mutant
leaves, ever. She shows him video of OZT. When he sees
Moira's face, he feels an inexplicable need for
vengeance.
	Warren and Betsy return to Soho (see Psylocke &
Angel: Crimson Dawn). They find leftover ice and
bullet shells (X-Men II:67), and then Betsy
disappears.
	Hank realizes he's in Magneto's base, which was
destroyed by lava, and that their ship didn't crash
there by accident. 
	Remy tries to force Spat to say who hired her to
catch him, but she just calls him a lowlife. Rogue
channels Remy's memories (X-Men II:41) and asks him to
explain them. He begs her not to ask and to let him
make everything right again, then points out that
since her powers are off, they can have a night
together.

Synopsis:	Maggott, on Joseph's trail, goes to the top
of the World Trade Center and sees residual memories,
including Rogue kissing him (iss. 341).
	In Antarctica, Hank has reverted to human form, and
Remy is bummed because he realizes it's never going to
happen with Rogue until he faces his past. Rogue
remembers the start of their romance (X-Men II:4) and
says she loves him. He says she can't love him until
she knows him, and she could never forgive him if she
did.
	Betsy melts out of the shadows and attacks Maggott,
before he can hurt the X-Men. Warren hears bystanders
scream and catches up to them.
	Grovel, a Klyruvian, commiserates with Remy, saying
he should just fess up, but he's afraid of losing her.
Grovel says that if she leaves, she was never his to
start with. Spat helps Rogue access Remy's memories,
saying she's blocking it out because she's afraid of
the truth. Joseph interrupts with the announcement
that OZT has attacked the X-Men. Both he and Remy have
been able to break their chains, which raises
suspicions about each.
	Betsy scuffles with Maggott, then pulls her psi-blade
and ends it, while Warren bats the slugs into the
recycle bin. She senses great darkness in him.
	Nanny and her monsters confront the mutants, who
still don't have their powers. Then Trish smashes off
Nanny's head, able to get close enough because she's
"only" human. Hank wonders who recreated Magneto's old
base.
	Rogue wants to know the whole truth, but Remy instead
turns himself over to Spat.

Synopsis:	Before he joined the X-Men, Remy was in a
church in Seattle to meet Sinister, who had hired him
to assemble a team and now pays him with a high-tech
vial. He demands one more job: to get the team to its
objective.
	In Antarctica, Rogue had given Remy the queen of
hearts to remember her by, before going off with
Grovel and Spat, who slaps it out of his hand,
expecting an attack.
	Rogue has Hank working to fix the skimmer, so they
can rescue Remy whether he likes it or not.
	Betsy investigates Maggott while Warren is cornered
by his slugs.
	Xavier has a nightmare: the center does not hold.
	Remy is held over for trial, by Sinister, he thinks.
Rogue gets a whiff of Ms. Marvel's 7th Sense and has
Hank stop the skimmer right on top of the dropped
queen of hearts. Joseph collapses, saying, "he's
here." A fortress rises out of the snow and ice. They
enter and find a statue of Justice.
	Betsy's power to slip through shadows is not entirely
under her control, and she and Warren find themselves
separated and facing the Code of Hammurabi and a
noose, respectively. Maggott finds himself facing
Joseph and says he's his friend Magneto (see X-Men
II:76). Someone calls Joseph an abomination and knocks
him out; Maggott recognizes him and is told to
cooperate.
	The rest of the X-Men are collected for the trial.
Rogue finds Remy, but he tries to make her leave,
saying he never loved her, wanting to face his fate
alone. She argues with him, saying she loves him
unconditionally. Erik the Red interrupts: the trial is
ready.
	Jean is holding together Scott's insides, which are
wired with a nanotech bomb (Wolverine 118), while
Ororo and Logan race their craft back to Westchester.
	Erik stands for the prosecution, Warren for the
defense, the rest are the jury, and Remy already has
his head in a guillotine. He is accused of causing the
deaths of Prizm and Scaleface, and the mass murder of
the Morlocks (iss. 211).
	Warren protests, saying Erik is just an alias, maybe
for Scott again (iss. 52); Rogue thinks it's Joseph
until she sees him captive and beaten. Erik says the
X-Men were unfair in leaving the deformed Morlocks to
fend for themselves. He gets Remy to confess that he
worked for Sinister; the X-Men are shocked; he claims
to have put all that behind him when he joined the
X-Men; Erik says "You cannot set aside your past! A
man's character is the sum of his actions."
	Betsy testifies: she bonded with Remy (iss. 324) and
now remembers that he assembled the Marauders. Remy
asks forgiveness; Warren is furious and refuses to
defend him. Erik forces Rogue to kills Remy to get the
rest of the story: he showed them how to get into the
Morlock tunnels, tried to stop them when the killing
started, but Sabretooth attacked him. Horrified at
what he had helped, he snatched up one little girl
(Marrow), and ran.
	Rogue uses Remy's power and charges the queen of
hearts, throwing it at Erik, who ducks. But she was
aiming at Hank's shackles; Maggott's slugs also eat
chains, and the X-Men are free. Erik tells the X-Men
to judge, then pulls down the ceiling and leaves with
Ferris. Rogue saves Remy, over his objections, but
then tosses him into the snow, abandoning him to his
fate.
	Erik, of course, is Magneto, and he gloats over
causing dissention among the X-Men.
