Cable, along with Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Wolverine of the X-Men, are flying a plane towards Mt. Everest, where the Phalanx has set up their Citadel containing their all-important Womb. The four mutants fly the plane into the fortress as a distraction for their real plan, to get into the Citadel undetected. Inside, Lang has turned traitor and looks to Psylocke for help against the Phalanx. Finally gaining entrance to the Citadel after an arduous climb up the mountain, the three of the four mutants battle their way through an horde of attacking Phalanx. Wolverine heads off to the Womb to free his captured X-Men allies. In the heat of the battle, Hodge senses the X-Menís escape. His efforts were in vain, though, as the X-Men, now freed, join in the battle against the Phalanx. Psylocke is able to free herself from her assimilation just in time to act as a psi-rod channeling the combined psi-powers of herself, Cable and Jean against the psi-net that had once connected all Phalanx entities across the globe. Sensing that the battle is nearly lost, Hodge absorbs the nests energies from around the world, effectively killing all his Phalanx allies with-in them. He tries to power up the Citadel and the Phalanx with-in with the power that he gained. It was too late for them, though, as Lang seizes his moment and finally lets go of his psi-hold on the Citadel itself, sending it and its occupants into the depths of Mt. Everest. Using all their resources, the X-Men are able to save themselves from the deathly plummet. Though not to be outdone, Hodge stretches forth with the last of his energy. Taking hold of Lang, he drags him into oblivion with him. In another galaxy far away from this one, a techno-organic being senses the loss of the Phalanx. He decides that now is the time for him to take more of an active role in the mission against Earth.
