Trapped in the Age of Apocalypse! To acquire their salvation Fantomex must lead a team of X-Men to a distant galaxy and steal the origins of life itself from the god race known as The Celestials! On Earth, within the mysterious floating city know as The Sky, the rest of X-Force fight through an army of twisted versions of Earth's mightiest beings as they seek a route home. If they do not succeed, and soon, Archangel will become the new Apocalypse!
Wolverine and Jean talk about their different worlds and their relationships to the other Logan and Jean. Jean makes attempts at and succeeds in kissing Logan but before this can go any further, a sentinel turns up and attacks them. Jean brings them down and they hurry inside to warn the others. The team discusses another way to get a Life Seed and also of getting the X-Force back to their own world. Fantomex and Psylocke later talk privately, too and he accuses her of not wanting to rescue Warren out of love but only to be needed. She hits him and then they kiss, but she leaves immediately.
The X-Men and the X-Force get on their way to Akkaba Prison to find Gateway, who's supposed to bring them back home. Magneto gets them inside by distracting the Sentinels but he urges them to hurry. Before they can get to Gateway, they are intercepted by the Black Legion which includes some evil version of persons they know (e.g. Ben Grimm, Iron Man, Hulk). And the last one to stand in their way is none other than this world's one-handed Wolverine.
