Story Arc(s): Add/remove story arcs to this issue
Their hunt for the Dark Riders has led Cable, Domino, Storm and Caliban to Alexandria, Egypt. There, Caliban locates the Rider known as Tusk and chases him into the busy city streets. This causes a lot of commotion and property damage, but luckily Cable and Domino manage to work together so that nobody gets hurt. Eventually, he is successfully captured by Storm and Cable “convinces” Tusk to lead them to his teammates. Tusk leads the four powerful mutants into the desert, where suddenly a sandstorm rises. Unfortunately, Ororo can’t manipulate it, as she discovers the storm is not natural in its making. Suddenly, Tusk betrays them and rejoins the other Riders, where it is revealed that Hurricane is responsible for creating the sandstorm. However, Storm, Cable, Domino and Caliban still manage to defeat some of the Riders. Gauntlet becomes angry at Hurricane for twice promising he could defeat Storm, and twice he has failed to do so. He states that Hurricane has been judged and wants to kill him. Cable uses his telekinetic powers to prevent Gauntlet from doing this. He thinks the Riders had better surrender, but they refuse to even speak the word. Istead, Harddrive teleports them away again, leaving Cable and the others unable to follow. Suddenly, however, Harddrive then teleports them away, too! They materialize in a ruined city, and Cable is naturally shocked at the destruction. However, there is more to this city than meets the eye. They are in Akkaba. Cable reveals that in the future, he and his rebel friends settle in a place called Akkaba. What they didn’t know was that their base was also the birthplace of… Apocalypse! And Cable finds a sign which confirms just that. On that moment, another familiar face appears, someone Cable knew couldn’t be dead. It’s his son… Tyler?!? Tyler greets his father, and the Dark Riders appear behind him.
For four months, Marvel tested a higher grade glossy paper on most of their X-titles (Deluxe) and offered the same issue printed on standard newsprint at a lower price point two weeks later.
