Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after X-Men II:71.
	Cecelia has decided to be a doctor, not a hero. On
the way out, she bumps into Ororo, who says she's
always welcome back, and Logan, who takes her on his
bike to Our Mother of Mercy hospital, South Bronx. She
explains her recent absence to Gibbons, who is
reluctant to have a known mutant on staff and warns
her to keep things calm.
	Scott and Jean fly commercial to Alaska to begin
their new life away from the team. They meet new
neighbors, and Jean suddenly senses something
homicidal on the jet.
	Cecelia is about to perform an appendectomy, when one
of the other doctors tells the patient's parents she's
a mutant, and they refuse to let her operate. Storming
out, she stops for emergency surgery on a gunshot
victim. The other doctors refuse to eat lunch with the
homo superior, but when Pyro comes into the ER, they
call her right away. He was shot during a bank
robbery, and he has the Legacy Virus and can't stop
burning. Cecelia removes the bullets, puts him under
police guard, and makes her rounds.
	On the docks, Sauron breaks out of a crate sent from
Antarctica.
	Daredevil observes and then approaches Cecelia; she
mistakes him for a villain at first (horns, and all),
but then treats his infected gunshot wound (see
Daredevil 370-371). He advises her to be a hero, since
you can save more lives that way.
	She continues her rounds, and Pyro tricks her into
loosening his restraints. She gets fired for letting
him escape, returns to Westchester, and tells Logan to
stop smoking (and ignores Ororo's strangely uneven
breasts).

Synopsis:	Jean sends her psyche out in the form of
various birds, searching for Xavier, when she is
startled by turbulence on the jet. Scott is still
hurting from his emergency surgery; Jean detects
nothing but static on the psi-plane. A passenger
starts freaking out, and Jean tells Scott to act like
a civilian and let the flight attendant handle it.
	Warren flies to the mansion, too late to say goodbye
to Scott and Jean, and too late to help with repairs.
He gets the cold shoulder and leaves. 
	A cloaked AIM ship has docked with the jet, causing
turbulence. Scott keels over in pain, the anxious
passenger says "they" want him back, and AIM bursts
in. They demand Sibelius give them the entity, but he
says it's rigged to explode if they take it. They zap
him; Jean realizes she and Scott aren't the targets.
	Scott remembers the death of Dark Phoenix; Staci
remembers having a lump in her breast; Chris remembers
his mother's death; Planck remembers getting a face
full of chemicals; then the psychological attack
passes.
	Sam gets a letter from his girlfriend Meltdown, who
invites him to the Colossal Man festival in Texas (see
X-Force 73, 75-76).
	Jean sneaks her way to the cargo hold, finds the
entity, and links minds: it is an other-dimensional
entity with empathic powers, captured and tortured
with tests. 
	AIM orders the jet to land; the entity emits another
wave of anguish, and the pilot hits AIM's craft.
Scott, too weak to use his optic beam, takes out the
AIM agents with the flight crew's help. The passengers
panic; Jean gets the entity to help her calm them; the
pilot lands in Winnipeg; the Canadian Dept. H takes
the crate with the entity.

Synopsis:	Rogue attacks Logan, stealing his powers and
memories. They fight, each with their claws, and she
begs him to kill her because she can't control
herself. It dissolves into feathers: she has been
having nightmares. Ororo comes to see if she is okay,
and they talk about Remy.
	Warren is guilty about abandoning the team; Betsy
says life is about choices and falls off the building,
forcing him to focus on her, swoop down and catch her.
He resents such manipulation.
	In Westchester, everyone goes swimming in the pond in
winter, courtesy Ororo. Logan stops an intruder who
turns out to be Stone, the local school inspector:
Xavier hasn't been keeping up with the paperwork. She
sees the mansion and puts the school on probation.
	In space, Bishop is captive of Deathbird, who loves
him and nurses his wounds. Joseph explodes the TV when
Agee claims to be able to reverse mutations. Rogue
suggests she use her power on him to access his hidden
memories, but he refuses.
	Bobby throws a snowball at Logan, and he goes
berserk. Marrow shows up and talks tough. Bobby cuts
himself on something in the lake: he freezes its
surface and reveals the original Blackbird (stored
there since X-Men II:1). 
	Logan is fed up with the team and considers leaving.
He is attacked and cries out. The team runs to find
Rogue over his unconscious body; Ororo suspects her,
so she runs off, but it was Sauron, who swoops down on
them.
	The Summerses arrive in Alaska, and Jean easily
clears the snow from their driveway, making the sign
of a dark phoenix on the blacktop.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after X-Men II:75.
	While Rogue runs off, upset, Sauron uses the life
energy stolen from Logan to attack the team. Sam
blasts into him, and Bobby and Ororo lower the
temperature, since he's cold-blooded. Sauron drops Sam
onto electrical wires; he blasts to keep immune but
hits the ground hard.
	Sauron fled the doomed Savage Land, mailed himself to
New York, and went on a killing spree, especially
seeking mutants to drain. Rogue interrupted while he
attacked Logan, and now he shoots Ororo, hypnotizes
Bobby and makes him encase himself and Jubilee in ice,
and tussles with Maggott.
	In space, Bishop admits his attraction to Deathbird,
but he knows she's lying, claiming he's paralyzed and
the rest of the X-Men are dead. Their craft is
attacked.
	Rogue finds Joseph unconscious in the mansion and
gives him mouth-to-mouth. Marrow sees them and thinks
they're a couple.
	Sauron tosses Maggott to the ground; he has his slugs
chew up the dirt for a soft landing, right on top of
Ororo and Sam. Sauron knocks out Jubilee and stands
triumphant.
	In the Ptarmigan Creek suburb of Anchorage, Alaska,
Scott practices his optic blast on tostado shells, but
he's still in pain. He is alarmed to see Jean wearing
her Phoenix uniform.
	Logan recovers and attacks Sauron. Then Jubilee drops
him with a few fireworks. The rest recover and plan to
hand him over to SHIELD. Logan wants to find Rogue,
but she has taken a cab into the city, to the Agee
Institute.

Synopsis:	The X-Men now have a low-tech answering
machine and get calls from Nightcrawler (just saying
hi), Margaret Stone (telling them to expect a live-in
inspector, see iss. 353), and Jean (warning about
Dept. H, see iss. 352).
	Logan is taking Sauron into the city, wrapped and
chained on the back of his bike. A low-flying craft
knocks them over: it is Alpha Flight, here to arrest
Weapon X for the murder of Madison Jeffries (Alpha
Flight II:8).
	Rogue sees Dr. Agee. He claims to have cured his
sister, a mutant, and takes an oral swab to get
Rogue's DNA.
	Logan says Mac and Walter aren't right, mistakes
Manbot for Box, and refuses to be arrested.
	In Alaska, Jean and Scott argue about her calling
herself Phoenix. She says it's nothing to be afraid
of: she's just claiming her own.
	The Flight attacks Logan; he says they've been duped
by fake video. Heather realizes his claws aren't
adamantium any more, so Dept. H has been lying again.
Rogue sees the tussle and gets backup. Ororo
short-circuits Heather's suit; Maggott scares Murmur
to death; Rogue tries to hit Radius; Flex surrenders
to Sam. Sasquatch hits Maggott with Sauron (!), Murmur
tries to mesmerize him but gets nasty backlash; Rogue
keeps trying to hit Radius.
	Sam gets everyone's attention and says Logan has an
airtight alibi: the X-Men were all Bastion's captives
when Jeffries was killed. Heather calls off the attack
	Scott leaves a message for the X-Men: he's worried
about Jean.

Synopsis:	Warren, Hank, and Bobby go to Alaska to
check on the Summerses (see Scott's message, last
iss.). Warren is grumpy: problems with Betsy since the
Crimson Dawn, plus he had to fly coach; meanwhile
Bobby is literally wearing his jester's hat. Their
taxi hits a blackbird, a moose, and a totem pole.
	Chris, a local cop, puts the moose out of his misery
and gives them a ride up to Scott and Jean's. Bobby
sees a strange man in the trees.
	Logan calls SHIELD about Sauron, and they beam him
up.
	Chris introduces the guys to his wife, who has a
good-looking, available sister. They settle in with
Jean and Scott; Jean senses something outside, where
blackbirds are gathering. Scott tells Hank she's been
wearing her Phoenix uniform; he points out that
Phoenix never really was her (a long story, ending in
Fantastic Four 286, of all places). Scott is still
worried, especially after the Xavier-Onslaught fiasco,
and wants their oldest friends to verify that she's
okay.
	Bobby lights a fire and toasts marshmallows, and they
reminisce about the early days, and how the team is
always accepting wild members, and that the new house
is built on Inuit land, and that Xavier is still
missing. Jean says she has pushed her limits but found
no trace of him. She coughs: the chimney is blocked.
Bobby shoots ice up it, and Warren sees a dead
blackbird pop out. Melissa, walking the dog, sees
Warren's wings.
	Rogue has belated suspicions about Agee. He is linked
to an organization called Mutopia but he denies any
wrongdoing.
	In Anchorage, they decide to eat out, but Inuits are
protesting, claiming the land. Chulyen the Crow God
lurks in the shadows. They find another restaurant,
and Scott starts to make plans for the team's future,
while blackbirds gather outside.

Synopsis:	Chulyen has summoned a murder of crows to
terrorize Ptarmigan Creek, because the land was stolen
from his people. The X-Men see the panic through the
restaurant window and go to the rescue, trying not to
reveal themselves as mutants. Chris uses a shotgun to
scare the birds off; Bobby tells him Chulyen is to
blame, but Chris says super-villains don't happen in
Anchorage.
	Agee plans to "cure" Rogue, like he did his mutant
sister, which left her horribly deformed.
	Back home, Jean insists they must save the town, even
if it blows their cover. Melissa comes knocking and
sees Jean in uniform and Warren with his wings out.
She's tolerant, being six-toed herself, and just wants
help against the birds.
	In space, Deathbird's craft is damaged and falling
toward a sun (conveniently labeled "SUN"). Bishop says
the time for lies is over; she should free his from
pretended paralysis so he can help save them. When he
says he loves her, she frees him.
	Scott sends the team out. Bobby captures Chulyen;
Hank finds polluted water; Jean and Scott rescue Chris
and his deputy; Jean catches one bird that has no
psi-signature.
	The team reassembles, each followed by thousands of
birds, which make a huge form of a crow in the sky.
Chulyen says it's the Crow God reclaiming the land.
	Jean disassembles the robot crow; Bobby ices Chulyen;
Scott blasts the murder of crows, re-injuring himself.
The crows dissipate, but nobody is sure why. The
deputy blames mutants; Hank says it's the polluted
water; the Chris says the mutants saved them all.

Synopsis:	Bishop gets Deathbird out of their crashed
craft and struggles with his feelings for her.
Together, they fight off native slavers. Bishop gets
harpooned, so they take refuge with Karel, whose
planet was attacked and who came here to find a
powerful weapon: a metal-eating virus. 
	In Alaska, the original X-Men pack to leave. But
Scott says the realtor called and the sale of the
house is off, probably because they were revealed as
mutants. A brick is thrown through the window. Then
the psi-plane explodes (X-Men II:77), leaving Jean
catatonic.
	A Chnitt attacks Deathbird, and she shoots it through
the eyes. They go across a dangerous desert to a
smuggler's city with a warp gate. The Chnitt
mother-ship descends to stop Karel. Bishop sends him
and Deathbird to the gate, while he uses a
metal-eating charge against the ship, which explodes
and destroys the gate. At the last minute, Deathbird
stays behind to be with Bishop.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after Uncanny X-Men 358.
	Deathbird dreams of dining with Lilandra, but instead
of food, she gets a note saying "gith," which is alien
vermin. A servant takes her to an infested cellar
(like where she was punished as a fledgling), and she
eats them with her bare hands. Lilandra has left the
dining hall, but a bird is on the platter, and
Deathbird picks it up.
	Bishop, stranded in space with her, asks if she ate
the bird, but she doesn't know. She thinks it is a
vision from the goddess Sharra; Bishop knows she is
insane and teaches her chess. She wants to renew their
romance, but he says that was a mistake. Their ship
detects a probe that leads them to a jump gate. They
find themselves near the moon, caught in a tow beam
from a Shi'ar fleet.
	The year is 2018; Lilandra's daughter Alanna is
Majestrix; earth is her conquered capital, Angel her
consort, and Sauron her bodyguard.
	Deathbird attacks the first guards she sees and gets
stun-gunned. Lab tests prove she is the legendary one
who defeated the Phalanx (Uncanny X-Men 343-345).
	Bishop wakes in a cell next to Juggernaut, a demented
shadow of his former self, who warns him against
Alanna. Deathbird summons him, and they share a bath.
	Alanna's seer says she needs Deathbird's support to
put down the Morlock revolt, so she offers her the
planet to govern and shows her the city. She
psionically assaults a protesting human; she is a
mutant like her father Xavier. Cable, Vertigo
(Jubilee), Longshot, and Falcon attack, capturing
Bishop. Vertigo goes after Sauron for revenge, but he
starts leeching her; Falcon protects her and gets
killed, while Cable triggers a preset grenade.
Deathbird paralyzes Longshot with toxins in her
talons.
	Wolverine leads the revolt from beneath the city;
Falcon had been using birds for espionage. Lilandra
lost a revolt on her world and asked earth's heroes to
mediate. While they were all in Xavier's mansion,
Alanna had it blown up and took over. Doom launched
probes to create jump gates and attract allies. 
	Cable forces Vulture to get them into Alanna's
celebration. But she is telepathic and jails Vulture
and sends guards to find the infiltrators. Vertigo
blasts through a suddenly locked door, and Bishop sets
charges around the shield's power core. 
	Alanna announces the restoration of Deathbird's birth
name; she crumples the paper, saying she can't be
bought and challenging Alanna to single combat.
	Sauron attacks, breaking Bishop's detonator, and
Vertigo gets shot. Bishop shoots the charges with a
machine gun and has to absorb the resulting explosion,
but Sauron drains him, accidentally overloading and
killing himself but saving Bishop. 
	Deathbird defeats but holds back from killing Alanna.
Bishop is proud of and kisses her. They return through
the jump gate, leaving Angel temporarily in charge.

Synopsis:	Rogue daydreams about being able to touch
Remy and lets Agee put her in his DNA Matrix Chamber.
	Jean goes to Shaman, who happens to be in Anchorage,
and he doesn't find any physical effects of the
psi-plane attack. But she is completely mind-blind;
she can't even sense Scott.
	Gyrich and the Brickmans observe Agee's process,
highly skeptical. The nurse asks Rogue if she's having
second thoughts, but she has recently touched Remy,
Joseph, and Logan (iss. 349, 354, and 353), and wants
more. Mystique impersonates the nurse, pulls a machine
gun, and fires at Agee. Rogue goes after her, so
Mystique reveals herself and says she's come to rescue
her.
	Jean is inconsolable.
	Rogue goes with Mystique to her Upper West Side
apartment and gets bawled out, but she insists she
wants to be cured so she can have a lover and babies.
Mystique says she's betraying all mutants, like she
did Remy, whose form she takes. Rogue throws her down
and says she abandoned him only because his voice in
her head said to. She touches Mystique, since that is
the only way to know the truth.
	Gyrich takes Agee to the Mutopia lab, where there's a
backup system. Rogue, having borrowed Mystique's
power, takes Mrs. Brickman's form and gets to the lab,
busts up the guards, and touches Agee. She learns his
experiments killed and mutilated, but now the process
works.
	Rogue ignores both Agee and Mystique and makes up her
own mind. She destroys the machine and sends Agee to
care for his sister.
	Jean finds comfort in Scott's arms, but she'll need
time to recuperate.
 	Rogue returns to the mansion.

Synopsis:	Beynon has nearly finished a miniaturizer
for Stark-Fujikawa, but Reed beats him to it with an
even better device and donates it to the space
program. Beynon is resentful, then gets fired.
Furious, he breaks into the building to retrieve his
invention and finds a bunch of other stuff.
	In Westchester, Hank asks Cecelia to the opera, which
Reed and Sue also attend, while Logan forces Sam and
Ben forces Johnny to join in a serious poker rematch
(see X-Men II:48) at the FF base on Pier 4. 
	Beynon crashes the opera with Psychoman's
emotion-stimulator. The opera singers start fighting,
then the audience.
	Sam wins at poker and gloats. Beynon has sent his
robot Hadley, disguised as Psycho-Man, to interrupt
them, but they quickly defeat it. Reed sends up a "4"
flare, so they rush to the opera. Reed, Sue, Cecelia,
and Hank fight, while Beynon isn't even aware his
machine is working, and overloads it.
	Ben runs his flying car into Logan's motorcycle, so
they try, and fail, to hail a cab. Sam and Johnny have
flown ahead and find the opera empty and wrecked. Ben
forces a cab to stop, but as they're riding, the robot
attacks again. Ben gets a cab over the head, but a
fastball special puts the robot down for good. By the
time they get to the opera, Beynon is already
captured. While they argue about what to do with him,
he escapes with the machine. Back in the lab, the real
Psycho-Man shows up, angry. Fortunately for him, the
heroes come to the rescue, but he fights them, damages
his own miniaturizer, then activates it, shrinking
himself and Psycho-Man down to the Microverse.
	They all go back to Pier 4, chat, and fall asleep
playing poker.

problem. The false X-Men attack the ship and capture

Synopsis:	In Seoul, Ororo and Kitty are ambushed by
servants of Cytorrak. They came to meet with Black
Tom, who wants Ororo to steal a gem.
	Rogue flies into the mansion; Logan knows from her
scent that she's been looking for Remy in Antarctica
and says she can't make him come back till he wants
to. Marrow has swiped Piotr's sketchbook, Kurt swipes
it back, Marrow puts a bone to his throat, and Rogue
yells at her. She has been living in the Danger Room,
and they want her out so they can practice. Piotr
mentions that Logan took his old room, so Logan
decides to move out to the grounds. Piotr goes to
Marrow, now in a closet, to give her a sketch of
herself, but she doesn't want him to see that she
collects pictures of pretty people.
	Juggernaut is dying. He had gone back to Korea on
rumors that another gem was found, but it was a trick,
and it drained power from his gem. He's still
rampaging in the streets, though. Remy returns on a
motorcycle and makes him drop a building, knocking
himself out. Ororo berates him for being out of touch,
but he says he didn't know anybody cared. He's also in
town to steal the gem.
	Kitty introduces herself to him and finds a map in
Juggernaut's pants. They partner, go to the temple,
and get attacked. Kitty gets backed into a pool of
piranha and phases into the chamber with the gem,
while Ororo and Remy fight the animated statue that
the cult wants to power with it.
	Remy "guards" the gem and sends Kitty back to Ororo,
who realizes they've been duped. But Remy overhears
her hope that he will prove himself a hero, and he
gives the gem to Juggernaut. Ororo asks him to come
back with them, and Kitty wants to know how he got out
of Antarctica.
