Notes:
The story starts out with an assassination attempt on Professor Charles Xavier as he is holding a speech at a one world harmony concert by Lila Cheney. To all appearances, the assassin seems to be Cable, the para-militant half-cyborg and former leader of the New Mutants/X-Force. The projectile used during the assassination is infected with a variant strain of the techno-organic virus that infected the son of Madelyne Pryor (the Goblin Queen, a clone of Jean Grey) and Scott Summers (Cyclops), Nathan Christopher. Falling for the assassin's ruse, X-Factor begins a hunt for Cable's team, X-Force, hoping that they can offer a lead to his location. A fight ensues, but it is only when the X-Men join in that X-Force is brought down. Following a different lead, several X-Men begin a hunt for Apocalypse, as Scott and Jean are abducted by Death (The former Morlock and ally of the X-Men Caliban) while Iceman and Colossus are distracted by War and Famine, all three of whom are Apocalypse's horsemen. But it is soon revealed that Apocalypse is not behind the events. Meanwhile, X-Force is kept prisoner in the X-Men's Danger Room, but veteran member Cannonball offers his help and leads the team to Stryfe, and the joined teams dismantle his organization, the Mutant Liberation Front. During this time, Stryfe attacks Apocalypse, but he escapes just barely, and flees to the X-Men for sanctuary. They reluctantly agree, in exchange for his help in curing Xavier. Eventually, Wolverine and Bishop meet Cable, who seems to be following the same leads as they are. After a confrontation, they team up and start tracking down the real perpretrator, Stryfe, an old enemy of Cable's whose face is an exact replica of his. Stryfe has captured Jean and Scott in his secret base, and is torturing them, accusing them of having neglected him, their child. The truth is that Cable is Cyclops' son sent into the future as an infant to survive a techno-organic virus, and Stryfe was cloned from him in case he did not survive. As Cyclops and Jean try to flee, they exit a door and, too late, realize that they are on the moon. Jean manages to send a telepathic cry for help, but due to the distance, is only able to subconsciously reach Wolverine. The teams assemble and make a final confrontation on the moon, but Stryfe has baited himself inside a forcefield that only allows members of the Summers family to enter. Cable and Havok (Cyclops' brother) enter, and a duel ensues which sees Cable nearly killed. Eventually, Cable and Stryfe are swallowed up by some kind of portal. The next time Cable appears some months later, he simply says "I survived. Stryfe didn't."
