After the events of "Second Coming", Hank leaves the X-Men despite Scott's pleas. Scott goes to the Savage Land to hunt dinosaurs and unwind, but Steve Rogers tracks him down and suggests that the X-Men should "come into the light" as heroes who saved San Francisco. Hank runs into Molly Hayes when his girlfriend fails to meet him at the La Brea tar pits, and ends up trying to explain extinction to her without being too depressing about it. Hope has more tests run on her by Reed Richards who is concerned about the effects of time travel on her health. And Scott and Hope try to figure out what to do next.
