When the family shows kindness to Wolverine, however, they're arrested by the MRD, character with haboring a fugitive mutant. Galvanized into action, Wolverine enlists the help of Beast and together they inflitrate the enemy's lair, successfully liberating not only the innocent family, but a dozen captured mutants as well.

Meanwhile, Wolverine is finding it difficult to get the X-Men back together. Most of the team is still unaccounted for, and those that Wolverine can find refuse to join the new team. The disillusioned Rogue has even taken up with the Brotherhood. But when the Brotherhood plans to go after Sen. Kelly at a press conference, the conflicted Rogue must decide where her loyalties really lie.


Just as construction of the new Xavier Institute is completed, the beautiful Emma Frost shows up at the gate and bargains her way onto the team by locating the missing Professor X for them.

Cargo ships have a booming side business -- ferrying desperate refugee mutants to the island of Genosha. But when Nightcrawler realizes the refugees are mistreated, he secretly boards one ship and teaches the captain and crew a lesson. It seems like he has the situation under control until the ship is boarded by pirates. These modern-day marauders have made a practice of scuttling ships and abducting the mutants onboard. It's up to Nightcrawler to defeat the pirates and save the refugees in a battle on the high seas.


When the Hulk is spotted in a destructive rampage in the Canadian wilderness, Nick Fury, director of the organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D., blackmails Wolverine into taking the savage monster down. But as Wolverine confronts the Hulk, he begins to realize all is not as it seems -- there is more than one monster on the loose in the wild. And as if a full-on flight with the Incredible Hulk wasn't bad enough, Wolverine has to deal with a pack of the firece Wendigo.


Xavier gives Wolverine and the X-Men a mission that goes against everything they believe -- they must not only save the Brotherhood, but also deliver an innocent mutant into the hands of the MRD. If they fail, half the world's mutants will be wiped out. That's because the Brotherhood has boldly snatched the perfect living weapon from the MRD prisons -- Nitro, a mutant who causes huge energy detonations. The problem is, this tortured young man can't control his power, which is something he has in common with Rogue, who hates the way the Brotherhood is using him. After using Nitro to destroy the MRD databanks, Quicksilver plans to deliver him to Magneto on Genosha. Unfortunately, they have no idea what they've gotten themselves into. Nitro's powers are beginning to overload, and the next time he goes off, it could mean the end.

But once they're inside, they still need a way out.


Nightcrawler makes it to Genosha, where he's welcomed with open arms by Magneto and Magneto's daughter, the Scarlet Witch. At first the island paradise seems to be the perfect haven for mutants, but Nightcrawler discovers that Genosha has a dark side. Now Nightcrawler must evade Magneto's mutant acolytes and figure out a way to get at warning to Wolverine and the X-Men.


Logan is haunted by an eerie dream, a remnant of his fragmented memories. To get to the bottom of what happened to him, he enlists the help of Emma Frost. With her assistance, Logan is able to locate and return to the place in his dreams. But he should never have returned, because now his past knows where to find him. The past takes the form of Sabretooth and the shadowy organization that Logan used to work for: Weapon X.


The brooding, heart-sick Scott Summers is so desperate to find the missing Jean Grey that when he spots Harpoon, an old enemy of the X-Men, he goes berserk. Harpoon was an agent of the vile mutant geneticist known as Sinister, someone that Scott believers could be responsible for Jean's abduction. Now, based on nothing but his own suspicisions, the out-of-control Cyclops forces his way up Sinister's ladder of commander, one rung at a time. But the closer Cyclops gets to Sinister himself, the more danger he's in. Wolverine and the X-Men race to find him, but Cyclops is walking into a carefully laid trap. And it could already be too later.


Rogue uncovers Magneto's plan for the Brotherhood, but Logan doesn't believe her when she tries to warn him. When the Brotherhood attacks, however, it quickly becomes clear that Rogue was telling the truth. Now, pitted in battle against the Brotherhood, the X-Men are kept busy while Magneto initiates a precision strike against MRD facilities across the country. The humans are under siege and Magneto's coup de grace will put more than just Kelly's troops in danger unless the X-Men can find a way to stop it.
