Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after UXM 372.
	Ororo called the Summerses because Xavier has turned
mean. They arrive to find half the team ready to quit.
Remy takes off before Scott can lecture him, promising
to come back for Marrow. Xavier talks to Jean alone,
then Scott.
	The Mannites have reunited with Nina. They need her
help; all sense something bad coming, especially
Beautiful Dreamer, who refuses to wake up.
	Rogue invites Kitty and Kurt to spend some time in
the city. Kurt and Piotr struggle with Marrow's
irrational behavior (do they know she's a teenage
girl?), while she practices controlling her bone
growths.
	Bishop and Deathbird explore the asteroid, then she
knocks him out with an energy weapon that he evidently
can't absorb, saying she received a better offer.
	Piotr and Marrow decide to vacation in Massachusetts;
Xavier denounces them all as quitters and cowards,
even Scott and Jean, who had retired to start a
family, and he plans to recruit a new team.
	Nina reads Beautiful Dreamer's mind, as Xavier taught
her, and sees a monster coming to get them. She goes
to the astral plane to find Xavier.
	Wolverine offers to stay on, but Xavier has shared
his mind (iss. 88) and rejects him outright, keeping
only Ororo, telling her to contact X-Force. The X-Men
have disbanded (third time, I think, with UXM 46 and
251).
	Bishop wakes, wanders a desert, and finds a road sign
for Las Vegas.
	Nina's astral form passes through Jean. Xavier is
unavailable, so Scott, Jean, and Wolverine offer to
help. 
	Note: continued in the Astonishing X-Men limited
series.

Synopsis:	Mystique morphs into Sabretooth to fight off
ninjas who tried to capture her. She doesn't know why
and decides she needs help.
	Rogue, Kitty, and Kurt are having a night out in
Manhattan. Kurt is upset over the X-Men disbanding,
Rogue is angry, and Kitty just doesn't want to think
about it tonight. 
	The Japanese government sent the agents against
Mystique because of a rumored threat to their country.
	Kitty and Rogue go dancing; Rogue is feeling wild,
and when a man nearly touches her skin, she slams him
across the room. She apologizes; he turns out to be
Mystique, who asks for her help. 
	Kurt has gone off to pray at church, where Lorna is
lighting candles. She doesn't recognize him because of
the image inducer and runs. He turns it off and ports
to catch her; she is paranoid because she is being
followed.
	In Brooklyn, Mastermind and Mesmero plan their
operation against Mystique. 
	Mystique takes Rogue and Kitty to the ultra-luxurious
apartment of her alias B. Byron Biggs, billionaire
recluse. She tells Rogue her story: she was on
vacation and accepted an offer to be a model, becoming
famous as Ronnie Lake. Then she was attacked in Milan
and has been running since.
	Kurt tells Lorna he's sorry about Alex's death
(X-Factor 149). Her heart is still telling her he's
alive.
	Rogue investigates Lake's apartment, which has been
trashed, probably by government agents. She finds
Mystique's high-tech telescope, then gets jumped by
ninjas who think she's Mystique. She beats them off,
but then Sunfire arrives and blasts her.

Issue:	X-Men II:94

Story 1:	Hidden Lives Part 2: Pandora's Box (23 pages)
Feature Characters:	Nightcrawler, Shadowcat, Rogue

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Sunfire fights Rogue, thinking she's
Mystique. She bangs on him till he notices she's
super-strong and can fly.
	While Mystique naps on the couch, Kitty finds
Destiny's facemask and realizes how little she knows
about Rogue's upbringing. She flips through framed
pictures, and on the back of one finds written: "CAT
SHADOW X REACH IN D." She reaches in and finds
Destiny's journal.
	Sunfire explains: the Japanese government has been on
the trail of a metamorph assassin, and evidence points
to Mystique, but Rogue doesn't think she'd murder or
leave evidence. She shows him that Ronnie Lake was in
Switzerland when the murders were committed, so it
must have been a frame-up. 
	Lorna tells Kurt she feels Havok is alive, since if
he were dead, his counterpart the Living Monolith
would have returned. Kurt knows the Monolith was last
seen hurled into space, but he doesn't want to dash
her hopes.
	Sunfire realizes Mystique's telescope is pointing at
an observation post in a warehouse across the East
River. Mastermind evacuates.
	Kitty reads the rambling journal, with glimpses of
the future (lots of A's and 12's, and "Death kills the
one who is become Death"), and an apocalyptic struggle
in the year 2000.
	Rogue and Sunfire bust into the warehouse, Sunfire
blasts a guard monster, and they find Mesmero and
Mastermind, the latter of whom died of the Legacy
Virus (UXM Ann. 17). Sunfire realizes they're
shape-shifters; their soldiers attack, Mastermind
flees, but Mesmero shoots him down and blows up the
base to keep their secrets. 
	Lorna apologizes to Kurt for sounding paranoid, and
he says goodbye. She locks herself into her apartment,
then makes a magnetic seal. She looks at the crystal
on Havok's old uniform, which still shows some
activity. She is observed by a Skrull in the shadows.
	Mystique thanks Rogue for straightening things out
and says goodbye. Kitty shows Rogue the journal.

Synopsis:	Note: this is a preview of X-Men: the Hidden
Years, written by John Byrne, and takes place after
UXM 66.
	The X-Men have taken a Sentinel craft (UXM 59), and
Xavier makes them recheck it for booby-traps. They
grumble, also angry that he made them think he was
dead (UXM 42). Scott is more patient, however.
	Hank notices a panel that wasn't there before.
Magneto appears and attacks them, then Blob, Toad, and
Juggernaut. Xavier sends Jean to help the boys, even
though she's in on the ploy. She puts Blob to sleep,
then Magneto wraps her up and takes down Scott, who
realizes it's all an illusion. He lets Juggernaut
swing at him, and it passes right through. Xavier ends
his mental projections. It was just a pop quiz.
	Bobby is livid, especially when Lorna and Alex show
up together. Scott is disturbed that Xavier is still
treating them like novices.

	Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras
Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after UXM 375.
	The X-Men have a Skrull with a big hole in his chest
and don't know why the Skrulls would be attacking them
or where the real Logan is. 
	The Skrulls test another fake Wolverine in combat.
Having received a copy of his psyche from their ally,
they have made a good impostor: this one even has a
healing factor. The lead Skrull blasts it in the head,
and the healing factor doesn't work well enough. They
have been breeding Warskrulls (iss. 276-277), which
can duplicate abilities as well as shape. One of them,
Fiz, starts to think that Xavier isn't their enemy,
since he is said to have opposed Galactus (iss. 90).
	Ororo forces Xavier to look beyond Logan to the whole
problem. Kurt gets Scott and Jean to check on Lorna.
The Skrulls have been observing her, attempting to
take a device from her. They figure out a way: a false
Havok. She lets him in, not reading his magnetic
signature at first, and he immediately puts an
inhibitor collar on her. He is about to take the
device and wipe her memory, but decides to keep her,
since she is one of the Twelve and a good bargaining
chip with the Skrulls' ally.
	He triumphantly carries her back to base, but then
finds she is really Scott, with an image inducer, and
he starts blasting as the rest of the X-Men come to
his aid. Melee ensues, but the Skrulls are not allowed
to harm the Twelve. 
	A portal opens, and Death walks through. Marrow
notices him and gets a mouthful of knuckles. Before
the X-Men can attack him, the bomb he set goes off,
destroying the base. Jean and Ororo keep the flames
back. Piotr gets a good whack at Death, shattering his
mask. It is Logan, as predicted by Destiny (iss. 94),
and he quickly teleports away.

Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after UXM 376 and is part
of the Apocalypse: The Twelve storyline.
	Magneto dreams of struggle, then Xavier shows up in
psionic form, apologizes for the intrusion, but
insists they talk. Magneto calls Cortez, orders him to
review security, gets a hypercharge, then strikes him
for insolence.
	Scott and Ororo discuss the situation. Scott isn't
willing to take Fiz at face value, since Skrull
society is based on guile.
	Jean uses Cerebro to find the rest of the Twelve. She
locks onto Bobby, who is under attack, racing across
Long Island Sound toward the mansion. Deathbird
attacks, but he draws back from killing her and gets
captured. Jean loses contact.
	Xavier and Magneto confer on the raised ruins of the
Leningrad (X-Men II:1) and continue the debate on
human-mutant relations. Then Xavier mind-links and
tells him about Apocalypse and the Twelve. Magneto
wonders if he could disrupt the plan simply by killing
the other eleven, but it hasn't come to that yet.
	Jean is eavesdropping via Cerebro, and Hank says
Apocalypse surely would have a backup plan. Jean sees
a dimensional portal open and telepathically warns
everyone. Moira gives Mikhail a clean bill of health,
then calls Jean to the infirmary. Death has come for
Mikhail. Piotr tries to stop him, but he knows all
their weaknesses and zaps him, knocks Mikhail down,
and bats away the gun Moira has aimed at his head.
Scott blasts his portal control, but Ororo fails to
stop him from getting away on foot. Scott realizes
Apocalypse chose Logan because none of the X-Men will
risk killing him.
	Sunfire tells his superiors about the threat of
Apocalypse. They refuse to believe him, until Famine
shows up. He devours all of Sunfire's blast, till he
collapses.
	Kitty catches up with Logan, who swings his sword
through her. She tries to get him to fight
Apocalypse's control, but he flicks a switch on the
sword and fries her. Rogue is up next and gets
flattened. Then Fiz. Then Kurt, who is able to disarm
him. But the X-Men hold back, and he slices a pillar
with his sword and brings down the ceiling, trying to
kill them all. Fiz gets big and props the ceiling back
up, but Logan is gone through the wall.
	Jean has located four of the Twelve. Scott sends
Warren, Kurt, Kitty, and Jubilee after Logan. The
rest, with Fiz, go to Egypt.
	The Monolith blames the Skrulls for tipping their
hand by attacking Lorna. Apocalypse decides he doesn't
need to capture the rest of the Twelve, because
they're coming to him.

Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after UXM 377 and is part
of the Apocalypse: The Twelve storyline.
	The X-Men whom Apocalypse doesn't need fight for
their lives against Skrulls and Monolith's cultists.
	Apocalypse says he was the first mutant and intends
to be the last. He is using the Twelve to power
technology taken from the Celestials and plans to take
over X-Man's body.
	Suddenly, the Celestial machine reverse direction,
unbalanced. Apocalypse didn't know Magneto's powers
were weakened, and now he has to rush his plans.
Xavier asks the Monolith to resist, but he just
thrashes about mindlessly, and Sunfire, Ororo, and
Bobby try to contain him, but he just processes their
energies. Xavier leads the others to find Apocalypse.
	Fiz convinces the mutant Skrulls to rebel; they free
the X-Men to join their teammates.
	The Horsemen show up; Mikhail, still able to jump
dimensions, ports away with them, allowing Xavier and
the Summerses to get to Apocalypse. 
	Magneto, powerless on his own, grabs the magnetic
field through Lorna and blasts the Monolith, to no
effect. Bishop realizes he's the solution; he can
absorb energy, too, so he does. The Monolith
collapses, and chronal energy builds to the critical
point, taking Bishop away (to his own series).
	Apocalypse takes down Cable, then telepathically
grabs Scott's energy. But Jean can then into get in,
through her link to Scott, and blasts him, destroying
his mask and revealing an ancient body. He
counterblasts Jean, then continues taking over X-Man's
body. Scott's energy is depleted, but he realizes
Apocalypse is vulnerable. He tells Jean he loves her,
then pushes X-Man aside. Jean hears his final
thoughts, laughter, as Apocalypse merges with him: his
body is genetically similar enough to X-Man's.

Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after UXM 378 and is part
of the Ages of Apocalypse.
	In December 2099, alien students tour an earth museum
with a commemorative hologram of Scott. Teacher
explains his sacrifice, and that Xavier led a team of
mutant Skrulls to bring peace and safety to the
galaxy, even finding a way to feed Galactus, then
establishing their base as X-World.
	Jean shows up, looking only a few years older. Fiz
and his Skrulls greet the X-Men, who have just arrived
for the centennial. Ororo has evolved to pure
elemental, Xavier is ancient, and Piotr has grown a
steel moustache. Jean stays behind to talk to Scott's
memorial; she has never remarried. Hank has got bald
and fat, spent some time with the Fantastic Foursome,
and is now on a 5-year mission with the Federation.
Bobby is all spiky and heads patrols on the perimeter.
Piotr has two great-granddaughters who look like
Kitty, who has passed on; Remy and Marrow are married
and old. Rogue arrives, finally in control of her
power and still young, and Marrow grabs Remy's arm
tight. Sunfire mistakes X-Man for Cable.
	Magneto's Brotherhood arrives from beyond the rim,
including Lorna and a mostly T-O Cable, and is
immediately challenged by the Alliance-X guards.
Magneto and Lorna push them back; they are here in
peace. Magneto and Xavier debate; Xavier admits he is
finally dying, from direct exposure to the now extinct
Legacy Virus. Ororo tells Jean to offer him her
forgiveness; he still blames himself for Scott's
death, but she blames herself.
	A Shi'ar announces they found an alien device that
could cure Xavier, but it needs power. The X-Men
volunteer, Xavier protests but collapses, and they
power up. Xavier calls out that it's a trick; the
Shi'ar is actually Apocalypse, who has reconstructed
the Celestial machine and manipulated time and space
to take advantage of the X-Men in their dotage. He
then reverses time, to drain all the power of their
lives backwards. Jean probes his mind, deeply, and
finds Scott, still fighting, looping the X-Men's
energies back to them.
	Back in Egypt in the present, Cable attacks, but Jean
holds him back to protect Scott. Apocalypse still has
enough power to port away with the Monolith. 
	They return to the mansion. Xavier didn't detect
Scott at all and believes him dead and himself a
failure. Logan is recovering; Lorna goes off with
Magneto; the mutant Skrulls are still on hand; Jean
takes a taxi and leaves.

Synopsis:	Note: this occurs after UXM 379.
	All mutants have been reverted to basic humanity by
the High Evolutionary's satellites. He feels justified
in thus averting a race war and consults with his old
mentor, Essex.
	In Genosha, Bobby and Hank team up with Magneto's
group to fight off the magistrates. 
	The UN Security Council convenes over the emergency,
Huxley and Haller debate, but no action is taken.
	Some mutants adjust to normal life and some don't.
Kurt works out with a Danger Room simulation of
himself, but the extra digits and lack of tail throw
him off. Piotr has picked up his art career, and he
advises Kurt to find a life away from the X-Men. Kitty
is back in school; Warren and Betsy are visiting all
the public beaches. Ororo and Marrow help out at a
children's camp upstate; Marrow dates, but Ororo
misses the weather. Rogue (too afraid to go to Remy,
see next iss.), tries to get Mystique out of jail.
	In a hidden community, Domina mourns the loss of her
daughter, drowned when her mutant powers were lost,
and plans revenge.
	Logan saves Jubilee from a mugging. He is dying of
adamantium poison. Moonstar sees a vision of Cable
warning her; her powers are evolving.
	Hank examines the Genoshan mutates, half-unmutated
into horrible forms. Magneto sends them away, but
Lorna stays.
	Sinister reveals himself and locks the High
Evolutionary in his own armor.
	Note: for some reason, although the men's hair
reverts to normal (Kurt, Hank), the women retain their
vivid hues (Lorna, Ororo, Marrow).
	Note: continued in UXM 380.
