Story Arc(s): Add/remove story arcs to this issue
Wolverine’s out and about running through the woods. He’s on the trail of Jean Grey and he’s starting to lose control. He runs out into a road and is struck down by a truck. The impact causes the truck to break down, however Wolverine keeps on running. Elsewhere, Storm and a drug dealer by the name of Priscilla Morrison are on the run from three super-powered war veterans. Storm lays a trap for Super Sabre that would decapitate him. She has second thoughts though and drops the trap. Priscilla is not too happy with Storm and how she’s playing this game. After Sabre runs by, they head off into the woods. A little bit later, Crimson Commando and Stonewall come across Storm’s trap. The fact that she didn’t spring it causes Stonewall to resent going after Storm. Super Sabre comes zipping by again and they show him the trap. Sabre takes off intent on beating them to where they’re going. He arrives at the most likely spot and waits. Unfortunately for him, Storm and Priscilla are already there. Storm attacks him and they fall off a small cliff. Priscilla takes advantage of the situation and causes an avalanche on both of them. She runs off and comes across the broken down truck and the couple it belongs to. Priscilla steals their gun and shoots them. She gets in the truck and takes off, but soon ends up in a swamp. Later on in the evening Stonewall finds Priscilla sleeping by the swamp and goes towards her. However, Storm is there hiding and she gets the upper hand on him. After rescuing him from the swamp and escaping a brain bashing from Priscilla, Commando comes upon her. Wolverine is also there and everyone watches as Storm fights the Commando. After a few minutes Storm wins and tells him to give up to the authorities or else she will kill them both. Commando eventually agrees and later they turn themselves in. Storm and Wolverine are there to make sure they do. During a conversation with Wolverine, Storm decides to take a new approach to thwarting evil mutants. In the meantime the other X-Men are at Moira’s lab complex on Muir Island. No signs of trouble except a few more Morlocks have died of their injuries.
Dazzler, Longshot, Psylocke, Rogue & Moira MacTaggert all appear in flashback.
