Synopsis:
Dr. Doom has captured the X-Men (last issue), and has devised cunning traps for each of them. Nightcrawler is in a featureless box, incapable of knowing where he is or where he can safely teleport to. Colossus is on an apparent mountain peak, with a whirlpool slowly climbing upwards. Wolverine is in a checkerboard amorphous anti-gravity room that is driving his senses crazy - and every time he hits a wall, it accelerates him! And Angel is in a giant birdcage where the perch is safe, but any attempt to leave it leads to many low-intensity lasers turning the air into a maze of criss-crossing beams. And Storm is trapped in organic chrome - the epitome of confinement - a state which triggers her claustrophobia and causes her to unconsciously generate a fierce Storm across the whole eastern seaboard.

That storm causes a near miss lightning bolt to jolt Cyclops eye-bandage off, revealing his optic blast to Lee Forrester. The bandage is re-applied, but Scott will have some explaining to do.

The reserve X-Men called in to follow the second half of Storm's plan fly over the derelict amusement park where the X-Men were released last time they tangled with Murderworld. Polaris uses her magnetic powers to trace the underground structures back to murderworld. Havok 'digs' a tunnel and Polaris short-circuits the electronics to prevent detection, or so she thinks. But then a holographic Miss Locke welcomes them, and the games begin! Trap doors separate our heroes, and...

...Havok finds himself on a roller coaster with spacecraft shooting at him. Some are holograms, but some are dangerously real! He blasts some, but then things look to get worse as he's headed to a large mothership's mouth. He jumps out at the last second, landing on the outside of the mothership. Predictably, his roller coaster car explodes.

...Iceman finds himself on an ice rink with some enraged hockey players. An ice shield keeps them at bay, but the excess weight tumbles the robot players through the ice and into... acid! More players skate into the rink, and heating vents turn on.

...Banshee finds himself in an old-west shoot-out. Deprived of his powers[2], he has to rely on his Interpol training. He out shoots the other robot, but its padres want in on the action - Sean uses a 'microbomb' to destroy them, blowing a hole through the wall where he sees Moira being tied to train tracks!

...Polaris finds herself on a merry-go-round. She gets distracted by what looks like Illyana Rasputin running by her, only to be attacked by the merry-go-round's horses! She destroys them with her power, and goes after the girl - except its not Illyana at all, but a robot with a gun! Of course, robots nor guns are no threat to a mistress of magnetism, but then the ride starts spinning incredibly quickly, launching itself into the air and detonating, but Polaris manages to protect herself. However, an inhibitor field causes her to fall...

Polaris falls into Iceman's chamber, who catches her. However, the weight of his ice slide collapses the rink surface below, meaning he needs to escape now or be eaten by acid. He super cools the wall in front of him, making it brittle enough to smash through!

Havok gets into the utility tunnels, and shorts out a major box. Chambers goes to investigate, and is taken out by Havok.

Banshee defeats the villain tying her, but she's tied with wire so untying her quickly is impossible. However, along the track comes Amanda Sefton and Candy Southern tied up in a roller coaster car, so blowing up the track will kill them. Banshee has resigned himself to having to blow up the track when Polaris and Iceman arrive, preventing anyone's death. Suddenly Moira, Amanda, and Candy explode! They were all robot simulacrums! Our heroes are saved by Polaris's quick magnetic shield.

Miss Locke watches all of this with glee - until Havok shows up and trashes her firearm. The control center disabled, the X-Men quickly free the hostages and make it back out to the hover jet to discover a major storm outside.

Doom has also noticed the Storm, and it worries him. Arcade however is unconcerned. And he noticed that Nightcrawler just disappeared from his cell!
