Synopsis:
Upon his return to the Xavier Institute, Cable receives a distress call from Moira MacTaggert. She warns Cable that the life of Renee Majcomb may be in grave danger if they donít retrieve her. She also warns that other members of Xavierís secret mutant underground may be in the same danger due to the recent upheaval of anti-mutant hysteria. However, due to the arrest of Charles, they canít know who those members are for sure without his computer files. Also, they were erased by the X-Men during the Onslaught attack, so he wouldnít be able to access them. Luckily, Moira has thought of a way that might bring those files back. She sends Douglock to the Institute and, after he uses his powers to recreate said data, they manage to locate the place where Renee and her protector are hiding. Cable, Domino and Douglock travel to the Louisiana bayou, where they are attacked by First Strike, a group of soldiers with special suits that make them invisible. They also work for Operation: Zero Tolerance and their mission gets monitored by their leaders, Bastion and Harper. While Renee stays in her house, her protector has run off because he heard something outside. The protector, who is revealed to be none other than Abyss, attacks one of the First Strike members, a woman called Amy Neils, and unknowingly almost kills her. Cable and the others eventually manage to take another First Striker temporarily hostage so Cable can figure out why their suits are killing them once Abyss absorbs them into his void. He informs Abyss, who apologizes for doing this, but they shouldnít have been attacked at their home. Nathan apologizes to First Strike for what happened to Amy, but he is certain sheíll recover as he reads some life signs in her. Cable manages to convince First Strike to go back to their base and then meets up with Renee, who reveals to them all that Abyss is working together with her to find a cure for the Legacy Virus, mainly because he is infected with the disease.
