New X-Men [Hellion [Julian Keller]; Surge [Noriko Ashida]; Dust [Sooraya Quadir]; Mercury [Cessily Kincaid]; Rockslide [Santo Vaccarro]; X-23]; Forge; Nimrod; CAMEOS: Anole [Victor Borkowski]; Colonel Miguel Reyes; Val Cooper; Sentinel Squad ONE
Forge has tricked Nimrod into transferring its consciousness into an anti-Sentinel robot of his own design. Unfortunately, the New X-Men don't know this and are on their way to help Forge battle the deadly robot. The kids throw down with the new Nimrod and damage it enough that its old mutant hunting program is able to reassert control. Nimrod causes a massive explosion, trying to kill all of the New X-Men in one fell swoop.
