X-Men and X-Factor meet for the first time since the X-Men “died“ in Dallas. The Goblyn Queen plays the part of plain Maddie, and the X-Men defend her from X-Factor. N’astirh picks her and the baby up and takes them to the Empire State Building, Madelyne lures Havok into following them, she manipulates him into joining them as Goblyn Prince. Madelyne promises to sacrifice the baby in N‘astirh’s master spell (which permanently breaks the wall between Limbo and earth) if he brings her Jean’s soul. Together the X-Men and X-Factor completely destroy N’astirh, but Madelyne and her followers capture Jean.
