The X-Men come upon the Petrified Man's metropolis as winter closes in about the Savage Land, but are ambushed by pterodactyl riders and some of them are taken captive. The remainder of the X-Men sneak in through the sewers, and come to the great audience hall with everyone in session to watch the sacrifice of the captives - the other X-Men (and Ka-Zar). They rescue their comrades and fight the guards, but the Petrified Man runs. Cyclops chases him, and fights the Petrified Man one on one. Garokk's expenditure of energy drains the city, and it falls apart - dropping him down a deep pit. Storm tries to save him but her claustrophobia overcomes her, and she returns empty-handed. Ka-Zar sees the X-Men out of the Savage Land, and they raft out into the Drake Passage in one of the worst storms on record.
