The X-Men are attacked by Shaitan, who then teleports them all away. Sage uses her abilities to unlock the latent powers of Davis Cameron. He manifests a type of teleportation, Sage calls Warp Wave and uses it to go to Madripoor. There, Viper leads the X-Men to a temple where Shaitan has Gambit. Shaitan uses the gems and Gambit’s energy powers to open a portal. Emerging from the portal are alien combat troops. The X-Men rescue Lifeguard and capture the troops leader. The X-Men leave and a new portal opens with more troops. The troop leader informs his men that they will rescue him and if any harm has become their Lord, Earth will pay the price.
