Synopsis:
Xavier has tracked down Lucifer, the villain who cost him the use of his legs, but finds that he cannot attack as his foe's heartbeat is rigged to a giant thermal bomb; The X-Men arrive in Bavaria at Professor X's request and run across the Avengers who have also arrived, drawn by the evil Lucifer exhudes; In a classic hero vs. hero conflict, the X-Men have to stop the Avengers from taking down Lucifer as the Avengers have no idea that if they defeat Lucifer, the world will be destroyed; After Xavier gives Lucifer a mind blast that renders him unconscious, he contacts his team for help and the Avengers agree to let the X-Men clean up the current crisis on their own; Cyclops uses his eye beams to disable Lucifer's thermal bomb, ending the threat of one of Professor X's most personal foes.
