Synopsis:
You want to have a good time in Tokyo, the guide books tell you to checkout The Ginza. We find Wolverine and Rogue are getting rowdy with the Yakuza in a Ginza district bar. They get information that leads them to the crime lord Nabatone, who in turn is supposed to lead them to Viper and the Silver Samurai.

Wolverine is looking for the Silver Samurai who plans on killing Mariko Yashida, his half-sister and Wolverine's fiancee. Their father was a crime lord, and the Silver Samurai wants Mariko dead so he can control that empire. Wolverine invited the X-Men to Japan for their wedding, only for everyone but Storm to be poisoned by the Silver Samurai.

Wolverine and Rogue infiltrate Nabatone’s estate to find a very dead Nabatone Yokuse. He has been dead for over a week. The man who arranged the meeting between Mariko and the Silver Samurai was an impostor. Wolverine wonders if while they've wasting time chasing smoke, someone might try to attack Mariko and the poisoned X-Men in the hospital?

Elsewhere, Yukio and Storm are attacked by some lowlife muggers. They easily defeat them once Storm fries them with a little lightning. Inspired by Yukio, Storm begins to embrace her emotions instead of suppressing them.

Wolverine's fears are correct: Viper and a team of ninja assassins attack the hospital and dispatch the posted agents. Rogue flies in, grabs two ninja and tosses them out of the building. Viper orders the other ninjas to kill her. Wolverine challenges the Samurai and wins their brutal battle by breaking his arm. As he readys his claws from the killing blow, Mariko begs him to spare her half-brother. Viper pulls a gun on Markio and Wolverine, demanding they let the Samurai go. The Samurai faints right as Wolverine and Mariko make a run for it. Rogue throws herself into the ray’s path before it hits them. Rogue causes the gun to overload, but suffers life-threatening injuries. Viper uses her ring to teleport herself and the Samurai away. Wolverine forces Rogue absorb his powers and save her life.
