In San Francisco, the X-Men are taking a few days off after finishing repairing the town; Storm is handing a squad of muggers to the police while Kitty Pryde prepares herself for a night out. Rachel ponders visiting Cylops and Madelyne in Anchorage when the weary X-Men are attacked by Freedom Force. When it starts to rain, Storm pretends that it is her doing as the villains do not know that she no longer has her powers and Rachel backs her up, by lifting her telekinetically as if she was flying herself. Spiral sees through the ploy and takes out Rachel. Rogue tries to absorb Spiral, but the sorceress has the stronger will and takes control of Rogue’s body. Spiral/Rogue knocks out Colossus with her strength and magically screws up Kitty’s power – the X-Men are defeated. Yet before they are arrested, the local authorities of San Francisco arrive and say that in their city the X-Men are considered heroes, while Freedom Force contain some well known criminals. As they can not even show an official warrant, Freedom Force leave without their captives. Naturally, after damaging an entire part of San Francisco again, the X-Men realize that they have overstayed their welcome and prepare to leave the city. The unconscious Madelyne Pryor gets wheeled into a hospital, since she carries no I.D. she gets listed as “Jane Doe“. In New York, Nightcrawler gives his goodbyes to Judith Rassendyll, the girl he saved from Arcade. The battle showed him how much he enjoys fighting for the right cause.
