Cyclops and Emma Frost re-form the X-Men with the express purpose of “astonishing” the world. But when breaking news regarding the mutant gene unexpectedly hits the airwaves, will it derail their new plans before they even get started? As demand for the “mutant cure” reaches near-riot levels, the X-Men go head-to-head with the enigmatic Ord, with an unexpected ally – and some unexpected adversaries – tipping the scales! A tragic death at the Xavier Institute reveals a powerful enemy living among the X-Men that they could never have suspected – and no, it’s not Magneto. Things heat up in a way none of the X-Men ever dreamed, but will teamwork save the day when they can’t even depend on themselves?
