The Egyptian authorities arrive and the Living Pharaoh tells them to arrest the X-Men for the destruction of an ancient temple. Alex takes off in the conflict and is attacked by a Sentinel. Learning of the attack on Lorna, Iceman and Beast head back to the states to investigate. They catch a newscast where the son of Bolivar Trask proclaims to the world that the Sentinels are once again active and hunting for mutants.
Sentinels attack Beast and Iceman and Bobby sacrifices himself so that Hank can escape. Angel flies back to the states with Cyclops and Jean following close behind. Iceman is taken to Trask's Sentinel base where he meets up with Lorna and Alex, now called Havok with a containment suit built by Trask. Sentinels gather mutants from around the world and bring them to Trask. Fearful of Larry's methods, Chalmers takes the medallion from around his neck and the Sentinels refuse to follow their master as he is revealed to be a mutant.
With Larry Trask revealed to be a mutant, the Sentinels refuse to obey him any more as they continue to capture mutants and prepare to kill them. Cyclops, Jean and Beast mount an offensive to rescue their captured friends.
