The Dark Ride
Domino, Caliban and Storm defend themselves against the attacking Dark Riders. Strangely, however, Cable doesn’t join the battle and seems in intense concentration. Eventually, he stops the battle and agrees to surrender himself to Tyler – who now calls himself Genesis – in return for safe passage for his friends. Tyler accepts these terms and allows Domino and the others to go, but only because it fits in his plans. Nathan takes goodbye from his friends and hands Storm over his X-badge, claiming he doesn’t need it anymore. Tyler then has the teleporter Harddrive bring them to his headquarters, which is actually the former base… of Apocalypse! Tyler traps Cable in a device which also holds the lifeless bodies of Foxbat and Hurricane. At the same time, Genesis sits in his throne and activates a device, which absorbs the energies of his prisoners and transfers it into himself to become more powerful. Meanwhile, with the aid of Cable’s X-badge, which acts more as a homing beacon, Storm, Domino and Caliban are able to track Cable at the fortress and break into it. Another battle against the Dark Riders begins, which leads to a host of explosions which naturally tear the headquarters apart. Eventually, Cable is freed and confronts Tyler, and desperately tries to bring him back to his senses. Tyler almost gives in, but refuses to come back to his father right now, as he doesn’t want to give up his newly found power. Instead, Tyler has Harddrive teleport him and the other Riders away again. Cable, Domino, Storm and Caliban also manage to escape right before the fortress completely blows up. Saddened at the encounter with his son, Cable takes off alone. He eventually stops running, and takes a brief moment to think. Nathan takes out an old photo out of his utility belt, which is a picture of his wife, Jenskot, and a young Tyler. Nathan stares and it, cries at the memory. Later, Cable and the others all return back to America and their normal lives, while something else happens in the ruins of the destroyed fortress. Someone crawls out of the shadows. It’s a person who shares a disturbing appearance with… Apocalypse!?
