Professor X calls all the X-men together to congratulate them on their victory over Krakoa when suddenly Sunfire decides to quit the team, with Angel, Iceman, and Marvel Girl soon behind. After some thought, Cyclops decides to stay along with the rest.
After farewells are said, Cyclops introduces the new X-men to the danger room. They train constantly for weeks. Thunderbird is injured by a laser which leads to a confrontation with Cyclops, who has been pushing them to their limits. He then confesses to Professor X that his love for Jean may compromise his ability to lead the team.
Deep inside the Valhalla military base whithin the Rocky Mountains, a parcel is delivered to an unknowing worker. Inside the package is a device revealing a button that reads, "press me". When the button is pressed a portal is opened from thin air and suddenly the base is attacked by the Ani-men! The guards are soon defeated as Count Nefaria arrives, flooding the base with anesthetic gas. His plan is to use the Doomsmith System (a weapon system that controls the entire U.S. missle arsenal) concealed within the base to hold the world for ransom.
Hank McCoy, who is currently an Avenger, requests the aid of the X-men who in turn scramble off at once. Cyclops trys to convince the injured Thunderbird to stay behind, to no avail.
The X-men arrive at Valhalla and it is explained to them that they have less than an hour to deactivate the Doomsmith System when suddenly their blackbird is shot down by a missle. They try to escape in a pod but that too is destroyed by sonic disrupters fired from the base leaving the X-men falling from the sky...
