Unstoppable

Synopsis:
Spider-Man is swinging through New York when he is apparently attacked by Storm, Nightcrawler and Iceman who reveal they are actually trying to warn him about a giant sentinel heading towards them.

The Sentinel takes them to the Peak. It is the Sentinel that Danger resurrected on Genosha.

On the Peak, the Fantastic Four, X-Men, Avengers and Doctor Strange have been gathered to help stop the bullet heading for Earth.

On the Breakworld, Aghanne tries to force Colossus to destroy the planet.

Brand makes it back to the X-Men and finds Beast. The team mention that Colossus doesn't know Kitty is trapped in the bullet.

On the Peak, Doctor Strange passes out when he tries to stop the Bullet due to the magical protection.

Mister Fantastic starts to build a defense against the bullet.

Aghanne tries to force Colossus to destroy the planet so he starts to turn human, which in the generator will kill him.

On the shuttle, Agent Brand comes onto Beast but they don't have time to focus on it.

Ord jumps into the generator and kills Aghanne at the cost of his own life, Colossus tells him he has saved his world.

Mr. Fantastic apparently manages to stop the bullet from hitting the Earth by using a Negative Zone portal. However, all the heroes are actually hallucinating that they each stopped the bullet. This is the true magical protection. The actual bullet is still intact and en route to Earth.

Emma tries to comfort Kitty who is getting sicker.

The heroes continue to hallucinate including Iron Man and Sentry, but Spider-Man realizes that his method of saving the world was ridiculous and snaps out of it.

Spider-Man punches Storm to snap her out of it and it succeeds.

On the Breakworld, Colossus makes a threat after Wolverine cuts off Kruun's arm. He claims if Earth is destroyed he will rule the Breakworld.

The sentinel tries to ram the bullet and the only result is the sentinel is destroyed.

The bullet reaches Earth, and at the last second Kitty phases the bullet so it passes straight through the Earth.

Later, back on Earth, Cyclops explains to Colossus that Kitty is gone. She has fused with the Bullet, which can never hurt anyone else, but she cannot return. This verified by Mr. Fantastic and Doctor Strange.

Wolverine is drunk and grieving. Armor provokes him into helping her train.

Brand and Beast begin a relationship.

Cyclops cannot control his power indefinitely and puts on his visor again.

Emma and Cyclops declare their love for each other.

Colossus remembers Kitty's words about the fragility of life and grabbing happiness before it's gone.
