Mr. Sinister holds a meeting with his Marauders after their botched assassination attempt of Madelyne Pryor. After several threats and an asphyxiated Sabretooth, he sends them out to try again. Over at the mansion, Dazzler hones her skills in the Danger Room. Her opponent is a holographic Rogue. When the real Rogue finds out she's not too happy. They almost duke it out, but are called to an emergency meeting. At the Grand Canyon, Naze and Storm continue their journey looking for Forge. "Naze," however, harbors decidedly unpleasant plans Storm isn't aware of. Meanwhile, the X-Men have taken off to San Francisco. They're there to help Maddie who was recently attacked by the Marauders. And speak of the devil, the Marauders pop up and mayhem ensues. The ordeal at the hospital ends when Rogue flies Maddie away. Unfortunately, one Marauder unaccounted for now shows up. It's Polaris and she's taken control of a construction zone to capture both Rogue and Maddie. She eventually dumps them in the Bay to drown. Luckily, Dazzler's there for a timely rescue. Both Rogue and Dazzler make amends, but all is not well as Polaris intends to finish the job.
