Synopsis
The X-Men make it back to the mansion after their harrowing battle with Magneto only to be commanded inside by Alex and Lorna. They learn that earth is about to be attacked by the alien Z'Nox but a plan has been made to counter the invasion--a plan formulated by none other than the "dead" Professor X. Xavier returns to his charges and explains that Changeling was masquerading as him when he was killed. The X-Men board the Z'Nox space ship and attack but it is the collective power of happy thoughts funneled through Xavier into his students that ultimately drives the aliens off.

Indexer Notes

The alien watchdog on page 12 was redrawn by Marie Severin to a more humanoid look, although references to the creature looking dog like were retained.
