The ex-wife of Gambit, Belladonna, convinced him and the X-Men to return to New Orleans to re-establish peace between the guilds of the Thieves and the Assassins. The team is then surprised to find that Ghost Rider has been transformed into a member of The Brood. A squadron of Brood attack the X-Men, with the infected Ghost Rider attacking Jubilee. Wolverine then attempts to attack the Brood Queen, and in doing so destroys a support beam and the floor collapses.
The X-Men find themselves underneath the city in tunnels that have been commandeered by the Brood. Wolverine and Beast are attacked by the Brood-infected Ghost Rider, with the transfiguration process still incomplete, therefore reversible. The Brood-infected Ghost Rider retreats into the tunnels with Wolverine in pursuit.
Jubilee and Rogue discover a chamber full of cocoons containing members of the Thieves and Assassins guilds. They are attacked by the Brood-infected Ghost Rider. Fortunately they are rescued by the combined efforts of Cyclops, Psylocke, Gambit and Belladonna. In an effort to rescue Ghost Rider, Psylocke uses her Psionic Blade to attack the Brood within. She enters the Astral Plane and with the assistance of Belladonna, proceeds to sever the connection between the Brood and its host, freeing Ghost Rider. Belladonna later dies due to injuries sustained on the Astral Plane. The X-Men and Ghost Rider then embark on a mission to save the children of the Thieves and Assassin guilds.
