Synopsis:
Issue starts with more strange happenings in New York where a family entering a demonic elevator in the Empire State building being swallowed by it. Then we have a Mr. Sinister sitting with crystal like sculptures of the X-Men/X-Factor. He is interupted by the Marauder Malice who still posesses Polaris. She has discovered that her bond is "permanent". Sinister convinces her its for the best. Sinister goes through each figurine discussing with intentions. However he is still not aware that they are actually stil living. (see recent issues of Uncanny for more info on why they are presumed dead.) Madelyne Pryor and havok are becoming more involved and find themselves falling in love. Storm sees a brodcast that displays Cyclops with Jean Grey who is still thought to be dead. She frantically seeks Wolverine and informs him. He however already suspected this due to scents found during the Mutant Massacre. Next we have Colossus, Psylocke and Rogue practicing. Rogue crosses the line and Psylocke acts by placing her unconcious. This allows Carol Davners persona to take temp control. The issues ends with Mr. Sinister chatting with N'astrih about capturing Nathan Summers. Then N'astrih seen speaking with Madalyne Pryor (Goblin Queen) about the same thing. Mr. Sinsiter is still under the assumption like the other X-Men to be dead. This whole story is the official lead in to the Inferno story arc.
