The X-Men's Gambit has always had a somewhat mysterious past, but even his teammates are surprised when his estranged wife, Bella Donna, shows up at the mansion determined to bring him back to New Orleans. It seems that arranged marriage of the couple's warring families was supposed to bring peace, but it doesn't seem to be working. As the X-Men soon learn, they've got a bigger problem. It seems that the increased body count is due to an old enemy-the murderous alien race known as The Brood. And when Ghost Rider arrives on the scene, it's unclear whether he'll be able to help out, or prove to be the best victim The Brood have ever possessed. This prestige format one-shot reprints and collects X-Men 8 and 9 (Volume II) and Ghost Rider (Vol. 2) #26 and 27. It features art by Jim Lee and Ron Wagner.
