Years had passed at the School for Higher Learning. Students came and went all the time. New teams and squads were built and the place always stayed the same. No matter the threat the X-Men were there to fight it. But a recent string of events had changed tihngs. Someone had somehow snuck into the school and kidnapped Prfessor X. Almost all trace of him was covered. Wolverine could not pick up any scent and Emma had a hard time even finding out he still was alive.
Someone powerful had taken him and a lot of the X-teams were off on missions. Some traveled to the Savage land and were unable to respond. But other threats arose. The villians were up to something and with Magento behind bars they knew it was not his doing. Mr Sinister too had not been seen or heard from in years. It seemed as if the mad man was finally done with plagueing Scott's life.
For the entire week teams of the mutants were searching the world to find clues. What they did find was not comforting. It seemed as it Apocalypse was the monster behind this. He has also used Proffesor X's power to enhance his own. To make it worse Apocalypse had reformed his Horeman. The new team consisted of Stryfe, Sabertooth, Deadpool, and Scarlet Witch. An odd grouping but dangerous none the less.
With this informtion Cyclops put out a call to all available mutants. They were to meet with him for briefing at the War Room. There he told them of what they knew. Who was behind the Professors disapearance and details on each of his new horsemen. They did not know where they were but felt it best to look for the pawns first. For they could lead them to thier master and with that rescue Xavier.
A number of people had shown up from an assortment of the teams. Cyclops was glad with the turn out. They were going to need each and every one of them to bring down Apocalypse and his Horesman. But to once again make it worse Black Tom Cassidy and the Juggernaut had decided to team up again and were wrecking havoc in New York. What they wanted he did not know, all he knew is that they needed to be delt with.
Once every one assembled Cyclops took charge. It was his job to make sure they worked as a team and that they all came together at the end.
"Listen up X-Men we have multiple problems to go along with the dissapearance of the Professor. Juggernaut and Cassidy have decided to mess with us at the wrong time. I will form a small task force to go against them while the rest of you divide up and seek out Apocalypse's Horeman".
"Emma if we are going to take down Cain then I am going to need you with me on this. Iceman your coming too, I need you for crowd control".
"Wolverine I want you to take Havok with you and search for your old rival Sabertooth. Find him and get us the infomation we need".
"Storm you Nightcrawler, and Madrox go and search for Wanda. Remember she may of once been a friend of ours, but now she is not thinking straight. Be careful".
"Shadowcat take Cannonball with you and find Deadpool. There is no telling what chaos that mad man is doing with the added power Apocaypse gave him from being a horseman".
"Cable you and Archangel go out and find Stryfe. Do not hold back on him".
"Emma, Iceman, and I will try and take care of Juggernaut and Cassidy as fast as we can. Once we are finished we can group up to help someone. Stay alive people if things do not turn your way fall out. Theres not telling what else is out there".
With that he looked throughout the room at each and every one of them. He had to be there to inspire courage for this could be thier greatest Trial. For what was the X-men without Professor X.
