Kurt teleports Amanda Sefton to Forge’s skyscraper and Xavier telepathically contacts Illyana Rasputin to come there too. Together the two sorceresses are able to contain the Shadow beings long enough till the cause for their appearance is found. The Dire Wraith that Storm left on the roof to freeze had not died of the cold, but was magically summoning the Shadow beings. After that Wraith is killed, the fight is over. Forge finds Nazé unconscious, unaware that the old shaman had been replaced by a Wraith and that third Wraith tried to summon a Great Spirit, but was taken over by the magical entity instead. The X-Men return home, Nightcrawler thinks that they should disband: Months of fighting, Banshee and Storm powerless, the government discussing laws against mutants and even dead members to mourn like Thunderbird and Jean Grey. Hearing this Rachel freaks out, how could her mother be dead, as she has not been born yet? She then reveals some of her past in her future time line, where mutants were killed simply because of their existence, and encourages the X-Men to go on, the world needs mutant superheroes to understand that not all mutants are evil. In the Bermuda Triangle, Lee Forrester rescues Magneto from drowning and becoming shark food. In New York, a worker finds a strange necklace.
