Synopsis:
Having captured Marvel Girl, the Goblin Queen stands triumphant atop an unrecognizable Empire State Building, flanked with her Goblin Prince and the Grey demons in possession of baby Summers; below, both X-Factor and the X-Men remain safe except Dazzler and Longshot, who are a bit out of the picture. The self-appointed Queen accuses them all and particularly Cyclops of betraying and abandoning her before releasing another batch of demons upon them. Ready to counter-attack, the mutants trip on one another and fire a confrontation between the two teams with Storm accusing Cyclops of being mutant hunters: it turns out Maddie Pryor had something to do with the turn of events. The Queen deflects every attack and tries to abduct Dazzler, Longshot and the Dark Angel, who all fall into the spell. As Jean Grey is freed and the others start working as a whole team, Cyclops and Havok battle each other: the Goblin Queen threatens to kill the baby and raises a force field preventing the others to intervene between the two redheads. As the two women fight, the Queen reveals her true nature to Jean; meanwhile, Scott saves his brother with the aid of Warren. The situation builds to a climax with everyone trying to break into the barrier as both ladies keep recalling their backstory until the combined powers of X-Factor and X-Men break through the bubble. In a desperate effort, the Queen tries to kill the baby and everyone in a blast, but Marvel Girl faces her again with some help from above...

Notes:
Continued from Uncanny X-Men #242.
The Goblin Queen retcons the duel in Uncanny X-Men #201.
Death is listed as Dark Angel but later Beast renames him Archangel, hence the duplicity of entries.
Continued right into Uncanny X-Men #243 and X-Factor #39, X-Men (1963) #1 is also referenced.
Cyclops and Havok would fight again on X-Factor #60.
