    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    The X-Men's trip to Cassidy Keep has been interrupted by an attack from Black Tom and the Juggernaut, who seek to kill the group of mutants.

    The Juggernaut and Black Tom Cassidy attack the new X-Men at Cassidy Keep in Ireland. During the battle, Storm panics and reveals she has claustrophobia, resulting from a childhood incident where her parents were killed during a bombing back in Cairo. She also reveals all about her childhood in Cairo with the master of thieves, Achmed El-Gibar. Her pain and fear then reach Prof. Xavier's mind and he tells Cyclops that the X-Men had been ambushed by the Juggernaut again! Cyclops denies Xavier's order to help the others because he wants to stay near Jean Grey until she recovers. Xavier argues with him and during the argument, a face from the dream that had been frightening Xavier for months appears in the mirror ( Lilandra). Back at Cassidy Keep, Juggernaut and Black Tom defeat the X-Men, and reveal that someone had freed them from prison. Some leprechauns help Nightcrawler.
