A confrontation between the X-Men and the Hellfire Club in Central Park has just been interrupted by the mutant-hunting robot Nimrod. While the Lords Cardinal are still amazed by the sight of the advanced robot, Storm shows herself to be a good tactician. She has Rogue surprise attack the Hellfire Club from below the ground, making Harry Leland lose concentration. Although no longer influenced by the gravimetric pull of Leland's powers, Colossus is still trapped beneath the ground. However, Kitty can now phase after him and before he suffocates. Meanwhile, the members of the Inner Circle attack Nimrod, who hits Shaw with a beam that reverses his gravimetric polarity, making him float into the stratosphere. Storm tries to convince the Hellfire Club that they need to pool their resources, but they only agree after their Black Rook, Friedrich von Roehm, is disintegrated by Nimrod. Finally accepting a temporary truce, Harry Leland acts as Storm requests and uses his gravimetric pull on Nimrod, pulling him to the ground. Nightcrawler tries to teleport a piece of Nimrod away, but the robot disrupts his power and Kurt dematerializes with a scream of agony. Despite him having a heart attack from the strain, Storm once more asks for the Black Bishop to use his power, this time one Sebastian Shaw. Leland passes away, right as Shaw comes crashing into Nimrod like a small meteor. Wolverine wants to slice the robot's remains apart, but it teleports away in the last instant. Tending to their wounded and cutting their losses, the X-Men accept Tessa's offer to accompany them to the Hellfire Club mansion, as the police are already arriving on the scene. Across the park, Rachel Summers, the actual reason for the initial confrontation, is lured away into the Body Shoppe, a place of beautiful light and music. Spiral, the saleswoman, offers Rachel to remake her in a new, beautiful way. After she accepts, the two vanish into a portal, leading towards the unknown.
