    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    The epic story pitting the X-Men and the Marvel Monsters comes to a startling conclusion! Rising star Nick Bradshaw (UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL) joins writer Daniel Way (DEADPOOL) to bring you the most exciting monster fight ever shown in a comic.


    Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Wolverine have traveled to Tokyo with the devastated young X-Man Armor to mourn the sudden deaths of Armor's mother and brother. Their funeral plans are cut short, however, when Tokyo is attacked by a group of monsters psychically controlled by the mutant Mentallo, who is holding the city hostage in order to blackmail his oil-drilling employers at Roxxon.

    After fighting off the monsters in Tokyo, Armor and the X-Men follow the beasts back to their source: Kaibutsu Jima, a.k.a. Monster Island, Mentallo's basse of operations. Unfortunately, the strain of using her ancestor-derived powers, recently amplified by her mother and brother's deaths, knocks Armor unconscious mid-mission. As an injured Cyclops stays behind to watch over her and plan their next move, Emma Frost and Wolverine continue to investigate the island...and fall right into Mentallo's clutches!
