When Dr. Steven Lang was still the head of a government project to determine why mutants existed, he came across Larry Trask's old Sentinel technology which convinced him that mutants had to be exterminated. With funding from the Hellfire Club's Council of the Chosen, Lang created Sentinel duplicates of the original X-Men in order to have them destroy the X-Men and eventually, all mutants.
While the X-Men battled Sentinels in outer space, Dr. Steven Lang captured Jean Grey and Professor Xavier. Jean soon contacted Cyclops using telepathy and the X-Men made their way back to their captive friends. When Cyclops arrived, he began to beat Lang until someone blasted him from behind. The other X-Men soon arrived and found the original "X-Men" waiting for them. The "X-Men" called the newer members (such as Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, Banshee, and Nightcrawler) imposters and "Professor Xavier" ordered his "X-Men" to kill the imposters.
A battle between the original "X-Men" and the newer team soon erupted that resulted in Wolverine deducing that the original team were not who they seemed. He then savagely clawed "Jean Grey" apart, revealing her to be a robot while Dr. Steven Lang explained to his captives that the original team were his own creations, which he dubbed the X-Sentinels. During the course of Lang's rant, Cyclops escaped his nega-tube prison and freed the other captives. Cyclops then battled Dr. Steven Lang and his flying gunship as the other X-Men continued to destroy the robotic X-Sentinels. With the X-Sentinels destroyed, the X-Men regrouped with Cyclops and the others as the Orbital Base began to rumble with explosions caused by the battle with Lang. The X-Men and their friends then exited the base thanks to the real Jean Grey telepathically absorbing Dr. Peter Corbeau's shuttle-flying expertise.
