Shadowcat and Colossus are kidnapped by Arcade, who tells them that Dr. Doom intends to kill him. He blackmails them into defending him, and along replicas of the other X-Men they fight Doom’s forces all over Murderworld. In the end, Kitty outsmarts them, as she programmed a Kitty robot to take her place, while she disrupts Doom’s armor. However Doom is really Miss Locke, turns out it’s Arcade’s birthday, and that’s their way to celebrate, Kitty and Peter return to the mansion and make up with each other, deciding to be friends again. Cyclops leaves his wife Madelyne and returns to the X-Men to check on Xavier, as Moira MacTaggert alerted him that Magneto has been allowed into the X-Men. In Manhattan, Nimrod kills two armed gangsters and the crowd cheers at him. Ororo wakes up in the African desert, fortunately the bullet only scrapped her head.
