Synopsis:
In the White House, the president makes an emergency phone call to Boris Yelstin in Russia, notifying him that the UN Security Council has activated the Magneto Protocols. A few minutes later, a man named Nick Fury awaits the actions of Forge, who is finishing the preparations to start the protocols, which he does. On Avalon, the actions of the world do not go unnoticed, as Magneto sees what they have done and he is made extremely angry. Magneto flies to the middle of the barrier the humans have erected around Earth and realizes that the humans have made a mechanism which would never allow his powers to work while he was on Earth again, or so they think. Magneto concentrates, sending a swath of energy through the electromagnetic field, surrounding Earth, which effectively disrupts every electrical item on Earth. Falling planes, whirlwinds, and tornadoes kill innocent people all around the world, by the pandemonium Magneto causes with his disruption of the electromagnetic field. In a mansion in Salem Center, namely the Xavier mansion, Banshee and the Beast are able to use the mansion’s Shi’ar technology to reroute the electricity to begin working again. Minutes later, Cyclops informs the X-Men of the recent events and Xavier decides to take the opportunity that Magneto has given them to sneak attack him. After a lot of arguing, the X-Men reluctantly agree to allow Xavier to lead the battle, wearing his new battle armor that allows him to walk by using his mental powers to control it. Xavier chooses Rogue, Gambit, Wolverine, Quicksilver, Jean Grey, and himself as the away team, because he wants to only take the fewest people in case they are killed in their mission. After saying their goodbyes, the six-team members transport themselves to Avalon to begin their mission. Worrying about the station’s security they are surprised to find that they are not detected. Unknown to them, though, it was Colossus who programmed the computers to accept their presence as allies and not enemies. After meeting Rusty and Skids and making their way to a control room, Xavier sends Quicksilver off to place a control disc in the computer’s main frame to allow Xavier control over the station. Xavier commands the station to teleport the Acolytes off of the station, allowing them to attack Magneto without any interference. Magneto, angered by the attack, hunts the team down where he begins to try and take them out one by one. Xavier seizes the opportunity to allow he and Jean to enter Magnus’ mind and try to get him to see the past as what it truly is, the past. After many attempts of trying to show Magneto his wrongdoings and the X-Men attacking him from the outside, Jean breaks the mind-probe when Wolverine wounds Magneto. Wolverine had attacked Magneto in order to save Quicksilver’s life, as he was about to be killed by his own father. Magneto wounded and kneeling on the floor, begins to use his powers to rip the adamantium from Logan’s body. Xavier, having had enough of Magnus’ killing, removes Magneto’s mind, leaving him exhausted and barely able to move. The X-Men are confused on what just happened until Xavier explains the horrific actions he just perpetrated on Magneto’s mind. Seconds later, Colossus walks in and informs the team their teleporters will no longer work. He tells them that he has radioed Bishop and he is on his way with a modified Blackbird. The X-Men leave their friend and their enemy behind, as Colossus vows to take care of Magneto until he heals, if he ever really does.
