Synopsis:	Gideon goes to Madripoor to find Crule (a former Nazi), who is busy
fighting in a bar and immediately attacks him. Gideon has the ability to mimic
other mutant energies, and bests Crule with his own strength, then sends him
after Cable.
	Cable and X-Force interrogate Domino, who they now know is Tolliver's
employee. They decide not to execute her, for now (note how far we've departed
from Xavier's dream).
	Grizzly joins Weapon PRIME in its plan to take down Cable.
	Domino plans with Cable to blow up the Adirondack base, so Tolliver will think
they are all dead.
	Gideon beats on Sunspot, but still plans to use him.
	Just as X-Force is about to leave for a new base, Weapon PRIME attacks.

the commandeered SHIELD IPAC.
	Joshua, under Gideon's orders, continues to pump solar energy into Sunspot. 
	Warpath offers his reservation as a new base (since his people were all killed
by the Hellfire Club, he inherited the whole thing). Then Crule falls out of the
sky onto the IPAC and attacks Sam.
	Cable and Domino/Copycat break into Tolliver's Sicilian base, down Pico, and
find the real Domino, a captive. Deadpool arrives and stabs the false Domino

shaken out of the IPAC by Rictor, landing somewhere in the Rockies. The team
agrees to rescue Sunspot from Gideon.
	Cable and a now free Domino defeat Deadpool and go after Tolliver. They catch
his helicopter, and Cable makes Domino drop off before she is killed. He sends

with skin.
	Gideon offers Sunspot to Sam if he agrees to never interfere with the

	Meanwhile, X-Men Gold tracks Caliban to a warehouse in Virginia, and breaks
in. Famine attacks Beast, but the X-Men quickly win.
	Sinister is holding Val and Stevie hostage in Westchester, and dares Bishop to
do something about it. Bishop blows a hole clean through his skull, but he keeps
on going. He claims to be there to help, and drops a note on Val, letting her
know who their real enemy is.
	Forearm drags Scott and Jean to Stryfe, who greets them as father and mother.

Synopsis:	Note: this is part 8 of the X-Cutioner's Song crossover. So far:
there's been a lot more fighting, as the X-teams track Cable, thinking he is
Stryfe. Stryfe has been amusing himself with Scott and Jean.
	Stryfe has gone to beat on Apocalypse, who realizes who he is. Stryfe stabs
him with the blade he once used to kill him, but he ports away before Stryfe can
ensure he is dead. The Dark Riders ally with the fittest: Stryfe.
	Aboard Greymalkin (revealed to be a space station), Cable has Professor tell
Wolverine and Bishop about Stryfe, an anarchist from the future who has fled to
the past. Cable reveals he himself is a member of the rebel Clan Chosen, and he
fled to the past after failing to overthrow the High Lords of New Canaan. Stryfe
and Cable have the same face, but Cable doesn't know why.
	In Westchester, the infirmary is full of the X-injured, including Boomer with
a broken jaw. The rest of X-Force is being held in the Danger Room, except for
Sam, whom Havok sends to keep them content in their cages. Siryn finds out that
her affair with Jamie was actually with a dupe, and he doesn't love her. Beast
plans a desperate attempt to remove the virus from Xavier's skull.
	Jean and Scott realize that Stryfe has been dampening their powers himself,
which makes him quite formidable. Once he leaves, they break out of their cell.
	Apocalypse crashes into the mansion with an offer to help them defeat Stryfe.

Synopsis:	Note: this is part 12 of the X-Cutioner's Song crossover. So far:
Stryfe and Cable are brothers, and one of them is baby Nathan (Scott and Madelyn
Pryor's son, sent to the future with a techno-organic virus in X-Factor 68).
Apocalypse cures Xavier of a similar virus. Stryfe is holding Scott and Jean on
the moon, where the X-teams go to rescue them.
	Stryfe fights Cable on the moon, hinting that Cable is an inferior clone of
himself.
	Psylocke realizes Apocalypse is dying, and Warren goes to find him, but
refuses to kill him and so follow his philosophy of survival of the fittest.
	Havok wakes and helps Cable against Stryfe, allowing Jean and Scott to break
free and join the fray. They try to get Stryfe to stop fighting and let them help
him, but he doesn't trust them and blames them for his whole sorry life.
	Cable tosses a device to Scott and tells him to activate it while he wrestles
with Stryfe. Scott has a bad feeling about this, but has no choice but to push
the button, and both Cable and Stryfe disappear in an exploding time vortex.
Scott knows he has just sacrificed his son a second time.
	Epilogue: Sinister has Gordon open the canister he got from Stryfe, supposed
to contain Summers DNA. Instead it appears empty. Gordon coughs (we later learn
the Legacy Virus has been released).

Synopsis:	Sam, James, and Firestar go to Nova Roma, in the jungles of Brazil,
to find Empath and Magma (see New Mutants 62). They are greeted first by armed
guards, but then are welcomed and feted. Firestar delivers their sad news: the
Hellions are dead; Emma Frost is in a coma (Uncanny X-Men 281-282).
	Firestar realizes that Empath has the entire town under his mental control,
and he has Magma, Sam, and James attack her. But Firestar's microwave blast
breaks his mind control, and he explains that Nova Roma is not really a Roman
colony. It was built by a nostalgic Selene, and the inhabitants were kidnapped
from modern society. Magma's real name is Allison Crestmere, and she is British.
Empath promises to help them all return to their real lives, thereby giving up
his only chance for happiness.
	Back in Massachusetts, James gets the White Queen's records on the Hellions,
and Firestar destroys them. That chapter is ended.
	Firestar gives in to Namorita's pestering and takes a new costume.

divorcing, decides to live with his mom in Manhattan, over his father's
objections.

get away in Hammer's Winnebago-jet.

Pacific Ocean. Sam immediately preps the team to rescue Rusty and Skids (they had
been teammates, New Mutants 72), at Xavier's request.

promises to lead them to X-Force.
	In orbit above earth, Magneto finds the remains of Greymalkin, which he calls

	Editor-in-Chief: Tom DeFalco
Synopsis:	Note: this is part 3 of the Fatal Attractions crossover, celebrating
30 years of X-Men.
	X-Force returns to Arizona, and Feral smells an intruder, so they split up to
search the camp. Each is ambushed in turn, but then Sam counterattacks. Turns out
it was Cable (his idea of a "Hi, howya been?quot;). He greets the team, and explains
it was Stryfe who killed Rictor's father, and Gideon Roberto's. He hugs Sam and
calls him "son," promising to be less military and more like family from now on.
He determines that Stryfe implanted neural tissue into Rusty and Skids to control
them, like he did Tyler (he lied when he said Tyler was dead, iss. 1). He plans
to fix them on Greymalkin.
	Sam doesn't trust him, so Cable summarizes his history (sent to the future to
stop Apocalypse, but failed, so came back to stop him early through Sam).
	Exodus arrives, wanting to take Sam and Roberto to Avalon. He easily defeats
X-Force, makes his offer, and agrees with Sam to take the other ex-New Mutants
(Rictor, Boomer, Rusty, Skids), as well. Sam has arranged for Cable to trace
them, and all are very impressed with Sam.
	Exodus gives them the tour of Avalon, formerly Greymalkin. Professor has been
silenced, and Magneto is in charge. He routes Rusty and Skid's blood flow to kill
Stryfe's brain implants, freeing them.
	Cable flies up with the rest of the team, realizes Greymalkin has been
commandeered, feels violated, and breaks in. Exodus attacks.
	Sam tells Cable to let Magneto keep the station, as a haven for mutants. Rusty
and Skids are staying. Cable retrieves Professor, but Magneto attacks him before
he can self-destruct the base, turning him into half a pile of scrap metal. He
bodyslides away. Magneto realizes he has lost the philosophical battle for
leadership of the next generation of mutants.
