Arkon appears on Earth looking for Thor, but discovers Thor is unavailable. His contact from his home dimension tells him that there is another who can help, so he travels to the X-Mansion where he surprises Storm in the Attic tending her plants. Storm doesnt take kindly to being manhandled, and it quickly becomes a full X-Men brawl as the battle travels from the attic to the living room and finally out to the pool. Arkon manages to nail Storm with a lightning bolt that teleports her to his dimension before being defeated, and the rest of the X-Men elect to follow. There they find themselves battling through Arkon's forces trying to find Storm, but when they finally do she no longer desires to be rescued. Arkon's people need help restarting the 'ring of fire' which provides light for his world. The X-Men ultimately agree to help, and succeed in bringing the ring back to life. The X-Men then return home.
