Synopsis:	Note: this is part of the Phalanx Covenant.
	Douglock is leading Sam, Forge, and Rahne to the Phalanx, a techno-organic
collective that is taking over all life on earth. Sam is distrustful; Rahne
believes him.
	They investigate a cute little village in the Italian Alps. The inhabitants
look human but are really Phalanx.
	In Mont St. Francis, Moira scans Rictor and Kitty for traces of the t-o virus,
then uses that data to track the Phalanx to California, the Alps, and the
Himalayas.
	Xavier telepathically searches for Forge and merges minds with him. Douglock
links in, warning them that the village is the Phalanx's nursery; it transforms
before their eyes, revealing pods. A baby Phalanx bursts out and attacks Forge,
seeking a human host. Douglock explains the Phalanx can now reproduce and
overtake the entire universe. Forge sees this new life form as beautiful.
	Douglock infects Rahne and Sam with the t-o virus, so they can sneak up on the
Babel Tower, the Phalanx's interstellar homing beacon.

	Simultaneously, Cable is no longer able to control his t-o infection, there is
static on the comm systems, and the IPAC has grown thorns; turns out Prosh is

and the Hellfire Club for his tribe's massacre; her trying to replace the
Hellions with Generation X. She tries to make him face his fear of death, but he
refuses. (At least he's convinced she didn't kill his tribe.)
	Sean and Theresa discuss unrequited loves: James and Moira. Sam and Paige
bicker: he's concerned that Emma is her role model; she doesn't want to be told

realizes that could have been her. She sees Hitchuck try to help Cole, and
decides to make her get help.
	Rictor and Shatterstar go to a club and dance with women (eek!). Shatterstar
runs, not knowing how to deal these new feelings.
	In Israel, Cable and Domino help the X-Men.
	Locus reappears in X-Force's base. She's been wandering time, abandoned by
Roberto, and now says they must stop him. She calls James "Pridewalker" and ports
them to the MLF's base, collecting the rest of the team on the way (and
interrupting before Boomer can help Cole).
	Dani is running from Reignfire, who is killing everyone, and who reveals

Synopsis:	Note: in X-Men Prime, Arcade blew up Murderworld out from under
X-Force, and Roberto rejoined as Sunspot, no longer a villain.
	In Westchester, Cable is in conference with Xavier, and the team is on
tenterhooks, wanting to know what's going on. Siryn is missing; James has a buzz
cut. Roberto flies, and nobody but Sam is comfortable with him.
	Shatterstar and Boomer go to use the Danger Room, but find it already in use
by Sabretooth, who is, uncharacteristically, lounging in a pastoral environment
(he was lobotomized in Wolverine 90). Sam hollers at them for even getting near
him.
	Cable calls the team together telepathically for the first time. He and Xavier
announce that they are planning to have their teams work more closely together,
that X-Force is moving temporarily into the mansion, and everyone gets a new
uniform (and James gets a bo stick). Sam has been promoted to the X-Men; Caliban
is joining X-Force; Rictor quits because he doesn't want Cable in his head.
	Siryn is dragged in a straight jacket into the Weissman Institute for the
Criminally Insane.

	Editor: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Boomer has been going every midnight to give Sabretooth a bowl of
milk. Tonight, she finds the Caliban beating on him, planning to kill him for
vengeance because he killed Morlocks (Uncanny 211), but since Wolverine
lobotomized him, he has no killer instinct and doesn't even fight back.
	Cable shows up, and instead of breaking it up, he gets the Danger Room back
online and recreates the Morlock tunnels. He reasons with Caliban, convincing him
not to kill the helpless, even if he is a murderer.
	Cable orders Boomer to stop bringing milk.
	Next day, Xavier watches Sunspot's newfound powers with some trepidation, and
suggests that Cable get Jean's help in practicing his telepathy. James practices
his bo stick on Caliban. Beast runs med-scans on an unwilling Shatterstar
(injured in Cable 22). Boomer tries to spend time with Sam, who is too busy with
X-stuff.
	Cable takes the rest of the team to Siberia, on an errand for Xavier. A
tracking station has gone off-line; they find a gaping crater where it was, and
Caliban senses something like a mutant, but not. They investigate, and find the
Mimic (Uncanny 19).

Synopsis:	Siryn investigates the Weissman Institute's files on Stevens, a
10-year old inmate. (She also comes across records of Benjamin Russell, who looks
like Shatterstar.) She is caught by Weissman, and explains she was sent
undercover by Xavier, but she assumes she is insane and sedates her.
	Xavier had arranged for the Mimic to be cared for in Siberia, far from all
mutants so his powers wouldn't go out of control. Now he attacks X-Force, blaming
them for the deaths of his caretakers. He throws James through the PACRAT.
	Boomer continues to give Sabretooth milk. He purrs for her, and remembers his
name is Victor.
	Sunspot grabs Mimic, who mimics his power, becoming another solar battery.
Their powers repel; they explode and fall to earth.
	Wolverine visits Boomer in the night, warning her that he will still "finish"
with Sabretooth, even if she gets in the way.
	Caliban tracks Mimic, but the trail ends abruptly at the site of another
battle. Mimic has vanished.
	Siryn has been calling for X-Force on a home-made radio, but they haven't
answered. So she calls Deadpool.

Synopsis:	Deadpool arrives to break Siryn out of the madhouse, and removes her
inhibitor collar. They beat up an intern, then go to berate Weissman for abusing
her patients. Turns out Stevens has been controlling her mind, and he has quickly
felled Deadpool.
	X-Force limps home in its damaged PACRAT; Roberto chews up the ball-field so
they can land safely. Cable sends the boys to the med lab to get Beast to check
them out; Shatterstar is still there, too. Boomer calls her father, who is
trailer park trash. Siryn returns to Westchester, reporting to Xavier and giving
no indication that anything went wrong at Weissman's. Roberto speaks to Cable in
Askani.
	Boomer brings Sabretooth milk and finds out he has remembered how to talk. He
doesn't want to live in the jungle, so Boomer reconfigures the Danger Room to
recreate the mansion's grounds. Sabretooth sees a simulated Wolverine, and
decides he likes it better inside.
	Stevens and Weissman have Deadpool captive, and Stevens's shadow shows him to
be the Gamesmaster.

Synopsis:	On Kali in the South Pacific, X-Force plays beach volleyball, boys
against girls (and Caliban), until the ball turns into the Impossible Man. He
wants his kids to join X-Force, Cable says no, but he won't stop pestering them,
so Cable is forced to give it a try. Turns out they're three slackers, who are
impossible to motivate.
	X-Force is attacked the Kalinator, a local sea monster, which swallows them,
so they fight it from inside its belly. Impossible Man is unable to get his kids
to help, even when the monster flattens him.
	Cable tells the kids this is not TV, but real life. He reads the monster's
mind to find what it is afraid of (its mother) and makes the kids turn into it.
She/they eat the monster, and belch up X-Force (and the monster's skeleton).

universe Cable-style. X-Force chases Cable into the ocean.

Synopsis:	Boomer goes to give Sabretooth milk, but her friends hold an
intervention in the kitchen, while Xavier and Storm observe. Caliban replays
Sabretooth and the Marauders killing Morlocks (Uncanny 211), but she replies that
Caliban and Roberto had both been villains in their turn. She believes in second
chances. She doesn't want to give up on Sabretooth like she did her father.
	They tells her she can't be friends both with Sabretooth and with them; they
can't let her put her life in danger. She is about to quit the team, when Xavier
comes in and convinces her that if Magneto couldn't reform, then Sabretooth can't
be trusted. She goes to say good-bye to him, but he doesn't show himself. He has
reverted to a crazed state.

Shaw (thought dead since X-Factor 67), who gives as good as he got and then

(the Morlocks were killed off by Marauders in Uncanny 211 and by Michael Rasputin
in Uncanny 293). Holocaust takes them both down.

Cable and Domino search Manhattan for their missing teammates and are ambushed by
them. Tessa warns Shaw she might not be able to retain control, especially since
three of them have already been mind-altered (Roberto by Cable, Siryn by
Gamesmaster, Shatterstar by Spiral?).
	Shatterstar stabs Domino, Cable psi-blasts him in the ribs, then jumps with
Domino through the skylight of the First National Bank of New York, setting off
all the alarms. Roberto follows, and Cable uses a grenade and telepathy to break
through to him.
	At dawn, they rejoin battle in Central Park. X-Force knocks Cable around, he
fills their minds with team memories, and they wake from Tessa's control. Shaw
retires from the field, for now.
