Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Rogue prepares to rescue Quicksilver from Zealot when Voght approaches her. The Acolyte urges the X-Man to show restraint. They can not beat the congregation of mutates the revolutionary has amassed. Voght may have another plan to save Magneto’s son. Rogue distrusts Amelia but reluctantly agrees to work with her.

A United Nation council monitors the Genosha’s progress. They question their decision to give the war-torn nation to Magneto and debate the possibility of backing Zealot. During their deliberations, the council members receive a startling message from the newly installed dictator. He destroyed their overhead satellite and the reconnaissance aircraft both silently watching the island. Humans will not have luxury of spying on the mutant populace much less manipulating it as they have in the past.

The demonstration of power drains Magneto. Even with Cortez’s augmentation, the mutant dictator feels vulnerable. He must continue to keep his condition a secret for he knows that he rules with little real loyalty from his own governing council. He understands most there motives except the human, Dr. Alda Huxley, so he makes time to openly question her motives.

Ferris announces the arrival of Rogue and Voght. Rogue’ pleads for Magneto’s help in rescuing Quickslver. He will not save his ungrateful son. Voght asks him to reconsider while Rogue desperately hopes he remembers the feelings they shared and the man he could’ve become. Magneto remains unmoved. He gives Rogue one hour to leave Genosha destroying any chance of redemption in her eyes. She is devastated.

Voght and Rogue must act quickly. Amelia teleports them to the Bastille, the former Genoshan prison where Zealot holds Quicksilver. They easily slip in and free the former Avenger, but they are detected before they can escape. The trio fight through an army of mutate guards and hide in the alleyways.

Still on the run, the three witness two mutates beating a countryman infected with the Legacy Virus. Quicksilver prevents the two bullies from spray painting an “L” on the victim’s face. Fear of the deadly disease may pose more of a threat to the island nation than another rebellion.

The incident also gives Zealot and his troops time to find and corner the fugitives. Fortunately, Pipeline appears with the members of Magneto’s council. Zealot scoffs at the reinforcements calling their leader a coward for not confronting him directly. Blue lightning answers the revolutionary’s demands: Magneto has come.
