The world didn’t end like everyone thought it would a few days ago – something that has given Cable and X-Force something to think about. Their homebase at Murderworld has been blown up by its previous owner, Arcade, and now the mutant team Nathan leads is without a place to live. After speaking about recent events, Cable and Domino, along with Cannonball, Boomer and Warpath, go to check the ruins of Murderworld to see if there is something useful left. While searching, Warpath asks Cable if he knows where Siryn is, but Nathan doesn’t even answer the question. Jean, together with Caliban, also arrives to help, and together they recover the PACRAT, an aircraft of Cable’s design, from beneath the rubble. Suddenly, Cable receives a telepathic cry for help from an old friend and, after dropping off Jean and X-Force at the Xavier Institute, Nathan takes Domino and Caliban with him to go help… Blaquesmith! They are led to a beached ocean vessel in which Blaquesmith has been hiding, and Caliban’s quickly locates Blaquesmith. After Cable frees his friend from under a heavy machine that fell on him during an attack, Blaquesmith reveals that someone apparently knows he is still alive, but actually came looking for data concerning Cable. Now freed, Blaquesmith manages to restore his computers to display an image of the attacker, as it all happened so fast Blaquesmith couldn’t see who it was by himself. However, the image is too blurry and Blaquesmith fears it will take a while before he can get a clearer picture. In the meantime, Cable asks his old friend, despite what happened in the past between them, for a favor. He has been thinking about a few redesigns for the team and needs Blaquesmith’s help with that, which he agrees to. Cable then invites Caliban to join X-Force, against Domino’s wishes and much to Caliban’s surprise. Meanwhile, at Muir Island, Moira informs her assistant, Rory Campbell, that she fears somebody working at her lab has leaked the info about the Legacy Virus to the media. Plus, that person also looked into some of her files concerning Cable, which could mean Nathan’s very life is in danger.
