Synopsis:	Maddie watches as Nate wears himself out 
defeating Tundra. Then she warns him that 
the other Great Beasts are heading south 
toward civilization. He wants to die (to avoid 
blowing up half the world, last iss.), but she 
gives him back some of his own energy and 
gets him to be a hero. She ports him close to 
the Beasts, and he tries a new trick: he 
telepathically shuts off gravity, shooting them 
into space.
	Psi-Ops has a lock on Nate. They include

suddenly surrounded by Gauntlet, who 
demand they hand over Nate, but Maddie has 
already ported him back to Switzerland.
	Nate suddenly realizes that Threnody might be 
able to drain all the lethal energies from him. 
He goes into the psi-plane to locate her, but 
runs into Maddie, who is jealous.
	Ness runs an ice drill into Gauntlet and 
announces he's broadcasting everything, 
which scares them off. (He was bluffing.) He 
sees the radioactive metal, shasteel, and says 
since they touched it, they owe their lives.
	Maddie fights Nate, trying to make him stay, 
but he continues his search. Then he is felled 
by an overwhelming blast across the entire 
psi-plane (see X-Men II:77).

Synopsis:	Nate's telekinesis makes him hungry, so he 
chops down trees in Auxerre, France, to earn 
eating money. He curses his fate, and his loss 
of telepathy and of Maddie, and he can't 
speak French, so he hops rides to England.
	Rick is released from the hospital, after 
surviving a blow from the Hulk. Still angry 
over his wife Betty's death, Bruce becomes the 
Hulk and bounds into the desert and smashes 
rocks.
	Hulk in the Grand Canyon and Nate at 
Stonehenge each see Thanos, consort of 
Mistress Death, who is trapped but can be 
released by ley lines, with Hulk's help.
	Nate comes into contact with him and winds 
up with the Hulk. He tries to stop him, but 
Hulk punches through his TK shield and 
throws him off. Thanos offers Hulk power, 
and he nearly takes it, but Nate returns with 
psi-armor and fights him. But Hulk was 
playing Thanos, who now decides to use Nate, 
and blasts Hulk.
	Nate's psi-armor begins to crack in Thanos's 
grip. Hulk recovers, stomps the ground to 
divert the river and flood Thanos. This 
disturbs the rock formation, freeing him.

traps him again. Hulk loses the cool armor,

off over the ocean from Ireland.
	Maddie pops in, having reincorporated herself 
after the psi-plane disaster (last iss.). They 
squabble, and an earthquake splits the ground 
beneath them. Nate telekinetically stops it 
before it hits the village of Clifden, but the 
pressure diverts into an avalanche. Maddie 
helps him smash falling rocks, then ports 
them into Clifden. Tech-Gnomes follow them.
	They dance with the locals at the pub, but a 
fire breaks out. Nate does an Ororo and

Nate repays their kindness by telekinetically 
fixing up the joint. They are accepting of his 
mutant powers. Maddie refuses to port him to 
the X-Men to fix his telepathy.
	Ness has the remains of one of the Tech-
Gnomes. He decides his former life is over and 
he is now the Witness.
	Blaquesmith, in shadows, catalogs the Tech-
Gnome tests.
	A mysterious being lurks and incinerates 
people, so Maddie and Nate impersonate 
agents MacScully and O'Mulder, and find 
from the police that it is linked to AOA 
radiation. Nate, thinking he is murdering in 
his sleep, flies into space to kill himself, with a 
Phoenix effect. Maddie pops in, gives him her

find Nate again.
	Nate attacks Nemesis, who armors up and 
reveals himself. Maddie ports them to Pike's 
Peak before they get hurt, but Nate demands

tricks Nemesis into blasting all his energy 
skyward, where Maddie ports it away

Synopsis:	In Dublin, Nate dreams: the full moon falls 
toward earth, and he smashes it to bits, which 
rain down, destroying all life. He awakes 
saying "Tramahoi", finds a Tech-Gnome 
causing the nightmare, and vaporizes it.
	In New York Slaine shows another Tech-
Gnome to Ness but says the Hellbent can't 
identify it's technology. Manx and the Sisters 
appear and attack, saying they are traitors, 
but they beat them off. Slaine sends Ness to a 
Pacific island called Tramahoi, where he says 
the Tech-Gnomes were grown.
	Nate and Maddie are there first and get easily 
lost in the jungle. So Nate blasts away the 
foliage, revealing Gnome trees that reflect psi-
powers, guarding a ship. The Gnomes swarm, 
so Nate tunnels under them and into the ship, 
where he finds Blaquesmith. This was all a 
test. Cable is unavailable, so he hopes to use 
Nate to stop Stryfe, who is returning.
	Nate refuses and tries to leave, but he and 
Maddie find themselves suddenly in Latveria. 
A pyramid has been hovering over the empty 
castle, and now it smashes down.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	The world watches in puzzlement and fear as 
a pyramid from the moon lands in Latveria. 
Fury tells the Avengers to stay out of it. Nate 
realizes the pyramid is from his nightmares.
	Blaquesmith scurries away; a door opens; 
Stryfe sends his Dark Riders after the 
telepaths, while they are still weak (since X-
Men II:77). Nate fights off Tusk and sends 
Maddie to Xavier's to warn them, but the 
mansion is deserted.
	Psynapse attacks Nate, scrambling his mind, 
and inadvertently breaking through his 
mental inhibitors. Psynapse is vaporized in the 
backlash, Nate is now glowing with his full 
energy. He easily sweeps aside the rest of the 
Dark Riders and brushes minds with Stryfe, 
who psychically reaches out for him and takes 
him captive. He plans to use the device Dr. 
Doom used on the Silver Surfer to tap Nate's 
power.
	Maddie goes to Anchorage, where she was 
once married to Scott Summers. She takes out 
Mainframe and Harddrive and teleports away 
without speaking to Jean, her original.

	Letters: Richard Starkings & Comicraft/AD
	Editor: Glenn Greenberg
	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Stryfe continues to feed off Nate's power
and 
gets Maddie to join his side. Cable uses the last 
of his energy to break away, carrying Nate.
	Latveria is chaos, and the people would flee, if 
any nation would take them. Ness slips in, to 
try to stop Nate before he destroys the world.
	Nate remembers most of this from his 
nightmares. Cable explains that Stryfe's 
pyramond focuses energy to him, so they have 
to attack him from outside. But the pyramond 
is growing, so Nate slips his molecules right 
through it, and Cable follows, blasting his way 
in.
	Maddie has been sapping Stryfe's power, and 
when Nate appears, she gives it to him. Stryfe 
hasn't been fooled and sucks the rest of the 
energy from her. Cable sends Nate to battle 
Stryfe while he uses his TK to keep Maddie 
from discorporating.
	Nate realizes the hard way that if he battles 
Stryfe, Stryfe will just suck up the psi-energy. 
He tells Cable to take Maddie and flee. Ness 
arrives and warns Nate not to blast Stryfe, or 
it will destroy half the world. So instead he 
attaches Doom's power siphon to Stryfe, 
creating a feedback loop. Stryfe explodes, and 
Nate escapes with Ness, who explains that he 
is the Witness.

she says he was just an acquaintance a long 
time ago. He's angry that she invaded his 
mind; she attacks him with superior psi-
powers, then realizes his power. Gaia 
interrupts, getting them to focus on the 
abducted Gen X kids (Generation X 50).
	Emma grimly remembers the loss of the 
Hellions (Uncanny X-Men 281) and psi-
traces her new team to Dark Beast's 
impenetrable underground lair. She gets Gaia 
to tear down the wall, and they find Gen X 
plugged into high-tech medical testing 
equipment. Dark Beast's thugs attack them; 
Nate bends light around himself to become 
invisible, and fights them while Emma frees 
Gen X, who join in.
	Nate realizes Wynter is animated by Dark 
Beast; Emma knew it all along and finds her 
way to his headquarters and is ready to kill 
him when Nate and Gaia interrupt. They 
found hatched Brood eggs, which Dark Beast 
had brought to earth. Emma, furious, breaks 
through his psi-screens, but it turns out he's 
not really there but just a sophisticated 
hologram. The base starts to self-destruct, and
