Synopsis:
Professor X goes about recruiting new mutants for his team of X-Men. There are seven in all and each one of them agrees, although some reluctantly. The mutants are Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Banshee, Storm, Sunfire, Colossus and Thunderbird. They all gather at Xavierís school where they discover their purpose, to rescue the original X-Men. Cyclops, the only survivor from the first crew, fills everyone else in on what happened, how the X-Men went to the island of Krakoa and disappeared. The new X-Men saddle up and hitch a ride on the Strato-Jet with Cyclops to the mysterious island. They break off into pairs upon arrival in order to cover more ground quicker. Each team runs into trouble on their way to a mysterious temple that appears in the middle of the island. Once they all arrive at the temple they break in and find all of the X-Men strung up by tubes and being fed upon. They break them free as the temple starts coming down. Safely outside, the original X-Men come to. Angel begins filling them in on what happened when the island itself opens up before them. A humanoid being emerges and explains that it itself is the mutant they were looking for. The entire island of Krakoa is a mutant. Krakoa explains that it was feeding off of the X-Men and let Cyke go free to bring back more mutants. Immediately following the explanation, battle commences. Nothing the X-Men throw at it is effective. Professor X contacts Scott after watching the battle for a bit and tells Scott his master plan. The plan involves Lorna Dane severing the planetís primary lines of magnetic force. It works and Krakoa is expelled into outer space. Iceman creates an encased ice raft to save them out on the ocean. When all is calm all thirteen X-Men board the floating Strato-Jet and head for Westchester.
