Story Arc(s): Add/remove story arcs to this issue
In Egypt, the Dark Rider known as Foxbat is running for his life. The other Riders are testing their own to see if they’re worthy to stay on the team or not and, unfortunately, that isn’t the case for Foxbat. He is defeated by Lifeforce, who literally uses her powers to suck the life out of him. Meanwhile at Xavier’s, Cable and Cyclops are training together in the Danger Room, but end up arguing. Scott suggests Cable spends some time with Jean to train his powers, instead of constantly relying on his big guns, but Cable declines. After they leave for breakfast, Jean has a brief talk with Domino about her feelings for Nathan. She quickly changes the subject, but Jean knows how Domino really feels about Cable, and she’s also aware of Nathan’s feelings for her. While Cable gets ready for breakfast, he walks through the halls of the mansion and finds some old pictures of the X-Men, including himself as a baby. His thoughts are interrupted by Beast, who jokes about the time they used to call Scott “Slim.” This causes Nathan to think about “Slym,” the man who raised him in the future together with his beloved Redd. While they finally eat, Cable informs Storm about the fact that the Morlocks are still alive, and she immediately wants to be brought to them. Cable takes her and Domino back into the underground tunnels where the Morlocks used to live. As Cable explains to Ororo what happened to the Morlocks, they are suddenly attacked by Caliban, though they quickly learn that, actually, Caliban was running for his life, as he is also being judged by the Dark Riders. Storm tends to Caliban’s wounds but, as the Riders arrive, they make battle against the Storm and her friends. An errant blast causes the ceiling to collapse, separating Cable and Domino from Storm and Caliban. They fight their own share of Dark Riders, but eventually the Riders’ teleporter, Hardrive, teleports his teammates away, as they have orders not to harm Cable. Cable wants to know who is leading the Dark Riders, since Apocalypse is dead, but, before he can get an answer, the Riders are already gone. Caliban thanks Cable for rescuing him, but Nathan warns Caliban not to thank him just yet. They’re going to patch him up fast, so they can use his mutant tracking ability to find the Riders again!
