The Fall of the Mutants

Colossus is relaxing in Scotland drawing pictures of the X-Men. A group of boys approach him and he’s taught a lesson on the state of mutants in young children’s eyes. A mysterious woman (Roma in disguise) asks him to sketch a picture of her. She disappears at one point and in her place is a statue of Colossus, the size of a trophy. He decides he needs to go back with the X-Men and calls up his sister to help him. Meanwhile, we find out that the Adversary has taken over Roma’s palace and plans on bringing absolute chaos to the world. Elsewhere, the X-Men are in Dallas trying to find Storm. They’ve tracked her to Forge’s penthouse. Freedom Force shows up to try and arrest them. A long battle ensues. The end results: Dazzler and Rogue are captured by Freedom Force and the X-Men have Mystique. The X-Men end up taking refuge inside the building. Destiny cries out, her precognitive power shows her that when dawn comes anyone in the building will be dead. Suddenly, a rift in the sky opens and sunlight pours through. The end of the world may be beginning.
