Only Longshot stands against the evil Mr. Sinister, who orders Malice to kill all X-Factor and the X-Men, who lie scattered over among the debris: only Marvel Girl -who is in the clutches of Sinister- and another teammate -who tries to take the madman by surprise- appear unharmed. But then Cyclops stops Malice from completing her orders, as the other mutants awaken and try to take a shot on Sinister with no success at all, as he seems to be impervious to their powers: even Rogue, who manages to touch him, is overcome by his will and recalls some memories of Scott Summers as an orphan child. Malice captures Havok and holds Colossus in the air, while Sinister keeps torturing a power-locked Cyclops with memories of their past. The others set a plan in motion to leave Sinister on his own and free everyone, but when Havok is cut loose, he takes on his brother instead. Cyclops anger grows past Sinister's hold and reaches its peak when Jean takes a blow meant for Longshot...
