Cable picked up an intruder alert from a piece of his former orbital base, Greymalkin, which now lies destroyed on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. He finds it odd that there’s an actual intruder there, as only a few people know its location. Nathan takes Bishop with him to investigate, believing Bishop’s past as an X-Cop might come in handy. Once they’ve arrived at Greymalkin, Bishop takes the lead and finds an unexpected guest… Sinsear! Sinsear is angry for having lost most of his humanity to machine body parts, and that people keep staring at him and that he doesn’t find any peace in this era. He wants to go back to his own timeline, where he hopes to re-find all those things. While they fight, Cable and Bishop try to make Sinsear understand that he can’t find those things in any timeline, but has to earn them by doing. Sinsear fires a blast at the two mutants, but misses, and instead hits the core which now gets damaged. Cable panics because if the core gets too much powered up, which it does automatically by its own, all reality will cease to exist. Cable finds an orb which will help them shut the core down, but something or someone has to go inside the core to make sure the solution sticks. Cable intends to sacrifice himself to save countless lives, but Sinsear disagrees, since he caused this mess. He takes the orb from Cable and goes inside the core, where he vanishes into a bright light. Once the light is gone, Cable says the timeline is now safe once again, though he thinks Sinsear’s atoms are scattered throughout the universe. As he and Bishop go back home, he and Cable discuss their pasts… and future… and Cable believes that, no matter what he does to prevent it, his own horrible timeline will come to pass and a lot of innocents will suffer. Once back at Xavier’s, Storm meets up with Cable where Nathan asks Ororo to tell him a little more about his sister, Rachel.
