Synopsis
Illyana, summoned to the Danger Room by Pixie's use of the Soul Dagger, fights the team to get the Dagger and Sword back. When she gains the Soulsword she transforms most of the way back to her Magik/Lightchilde incarnation (armor and small horns, but human legs and no tail). After she flees back to Limbo, where she encounters Witchfire, Colossus demands that Cyclops allow him to take a team to Limbo. Cyclops names Nightcrawler the team leader, and sends Wolverine, Pixie, Mercury and Rockslide to accompany him and Colossus.

Witchfire captures her and takes another piece of her soul to forge a fifth and final blood stone. Colossus begs Nightcrawler to try and teleport the rest of them over. Kurt does so but Witchfire immediately possesses both Wolverine and Colossus and they turn on their friends.
