Synopsis:	Nate checks on his old friends in New York; 
they don't need him. In the old loft, he and 
Maddie don't notice Threnody in the shadows, 
but she sees them, together.
	In Dublin, Gauntlet interrogates the locals to 
find Nate, but the Irish are stubborn. Ness 
observes and realizes there's a sympathetic 
heart among them. Maddie and Nate pop 
right into the middle of it, and Gauntlet opens 
fire. Nate sends Maddie to the hospital with 
the wounded Mrs. MacAleer and psi-blasts 
ineffectively against the Gauntlet armor, while 
Ness and Scanlon chat.
	Nate negates gravity (like iss. 40), but 
Gauntlet was prepared for it. Just in time, 
Maddie ports away with him. They follow; she 
tries to port Barone out of his armor, but it's 
shielded. She gets knocked back, but cracks 
the armor, so Nate blasts away.
	In the ruins of the MacAleers' inn, Nate, Ness, 
and Maddie are surrounded by hordes of 
Gauntlet. Ness explains they are a powerful 
international government agency.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Breda MacAleer rushes back from the hospital

to find her inn under attack by Gauntlet. 
Maddie wants to flee, but Ness convinces Nate 
he'd just be found again, so they stay and 
fight. Maddie is knocked down, and Ness tells 
Nate to bury her alive to shield her.
	Scanlon has been overruled by the Overreach 
Committee, so Vise kills him, which Fontaine 
feels in her head. Vise confronts her, so she 
uses their comm-link to get through her 
armor and take over her mind. Vise is a mole, 
she's not the only one, and they have nukes. 
Fontaine jams Gauntlet's comm-system, and 
during the chaos mind-dumps the whole story 
to Nate and Ness.
	Nate leaves Ness to guard Maddie, who ports 
herself away before he can dig her up. 
Fontaine uses Scanlon's code to order all the 
loyal Gauntlet to evacuate the area; she and 
Nate get into the command ship through the 
exhaust vent, shielded in a psi-bubble. He 
blasts the engines, crashing it onto the 
remaining Gauntlet and an entire Dublin 
neighborhood. The MacAleers are furious 
about the personal devastation, and Nate 
explodes with anguish.
	Threnody reads about his death in the Bugle.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Nate dreams of being back in the Age of 
Apocalypse, with Infinites after him for 
sabotage. Jean wakes him; they and Scott are 
camping in Alaska. Nate had come to them, 
sensing something evil at the top of a 
mountain; as they climb up, two Infinites fall 
past them, fused together with a chunk of 
rock.
	At the top, they find many similarly mangled 
corpses, both Infinite and human, and then a 
piece of the Atlantic sea wall, which has a 
generator to dampen mutant powers.
	Infinites jump out of the snow and attack; 
Nate and Scott work together to protect Jean; 
Jean mind-reads that the Infinites don't know 
how they got here, but they're setting up a 
cloning facility to create an army. They enter 
the sea wall and split up, intending to destroy 
the Null Generator and the cloning pool.
	Hatchet-9 stalks them.

Synopsis:	Scott and Nate go to the clone pool, while
Jean 
gets to the Null Generator, but she is 
powerless to shut it down. Hatchet-9 attacks 
her, and Scott realizes she's in danger and 
tells Nate they have to go help her.
	Nate battles Hatchet-9, and tricks him into 
damaging the Null Generator. It implodes and 
starts sucking all the AOA elements back to 
their own universe. The mutants, their powers 
restored, battle to get beyond the sea wall, 
without letting any Infinites escape.
	The sea wall disappears; the remaining 
mountain avalanches, and Jean and Nate put 
up a psi-bubble. Nate sees a quick vision of 
AOA Forge and his team, but comes to with 
Scott and Jean. Now they have to climb back 
down the mountain.

Shi'ar stargate open, and a ship heading for 
earth.
	In Anchorage, Jean sends Scott and Nate to 
spend some time together, fishing. They come 
across another father and son, wounded, and 
bring them home, through a stormy night. 
The power is out, Jean can't telepathically find 
the doctor, and the road washes out.
	Nate, with no telepathy, can't comfort the 
wounded boy, and he realizes they aren't 
what they seem. They reveal themselves as 
Jahf and Modt, keepers of the M'Kraan 
Crystal, and attack Nate as an abomination. 
Nate fights back, but these two are powered 
by the crystal, which contains a neutron 
galaxy. So they get Modt to fall onto Jahf, 
stopping both.
	They came because of the dimensional rift 
(last 2 issues), and set up their ruse to test 
Nate's sense of responsibility. He passed, but 
Jahf still thinks he's too dangerous. Modt 
overrides his decision, and they port away.
	Nate's clothes were ruined, so Scott gives him 
his old X-Factor uniform, and he flies off.
	Threnody observes.
	Note: Nate next appears in Astonishing X-Men 
1-3.

Synopsis:	In Greyville, Nate, Threnody, Maddie, and 
Spider-Man watch a drive-in movie together, 
when it is suddenly attacked by Ecco, the 
Sludge that Swallowed Secaucus. He plops the 
screen on top of it, while the others aid the 
panicked crowd.
	A SHIELD agent named Violet shows up, 
angry over a real-estate deal, while Ecco 
catches Spider-Man. Nate dives in after him, 
and realizes it is a collection of small entities 
under Violet's control. He gets Spider-Man 
out, and Threnody uses her death powers on 
Ecco, which knocks out Violet, and Ecco 
scatters like shiny cockroaches. The police 
take Violet away.
	Back on the farm, Nate relaxes with Cable, 
Jean, and Forge. They are attacked by Sinister 
on a flying horse; he easily kills Jean, Forge, 
and Cable. Nate attacks Sinister and finds an 
old man behind the mask.
	He realizes his life in Greyville was all too 
good to be true: he refuses to believe, and the 
illusion shatters. He wonders if he 
subconsciously created a paradise for himself.
	The real Threnody and her dead groupies 
have followed Nate all the way from Alaska.
	Nate decides the Purple Man is to blame, and

Peteri
	Editor: Jason Liebig
	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Nate finds Killgrave, and since he can't
trust 
his senses, he lashes out in all directions at 
once and kills him, but turns out it's someone 
else. He looks up: holomirrors shift, and he 
realizes he's in a sophisticated illusion, with 
actors who are now quite scared.
	Mysterio had abducted Nate while he was 
visiting a circus, and has used illusions to 
trick him into helping him steal.
	Nate is horrified that he has killed a relatively 
innocent man, and he lashes out with psychic 
energy, busting the ceiling of this undersea 
base and letting the water flood in. He rescues 
Threnody, then realizes it's still illusion, and 
makes it all disappear, even the actors. He 
shatters various illusions Mysterio throws at 
him, then throws him an illusion of complete 
victory.
	Nate leaves him to his delusions of grandeur, 
notes that his telepathy has returned, then 
collapses in the street, where Threnody finds 
him.

corpses, who pile on top of her, as she calls 
out for Nate. He wakes, orients himself, then 
pulls them off and flying away with her, out 
from under the piers of Seattle.
	Nate promises never to leave her again; she 
tells him it wasn't her decision to leave, but 
Maddie killed her (iss. 25). But then she 
absorbed all the death energies in the morgue, 
which are just as powerful as life energies. 
The dead are now addicted to her; she is 
addicted to death and is willing to kill (iss. 
24).
	The dead crash in on them; Nate escapes with 
her to a boat in the harbor. She tells him she

him stand down.
