Alex warns his friends to stay away as he has no control over the destructive powers coursing through his body.

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.

Synopsis
With Professor X in a coma after warding off the Z'Nox, the X-Men try to reach him and he mentally tells them one word, "Hulk." The X-Men track down the jade giant and Jean's mental powers cause him to revert to Bruce Banner. Banner tells them that he has a machine that may save Xavier but Major Talbot shows up and causes him to transform to the Hulk again. The X-Men follow him into the desert and battle him at the site of an old lab where they are able to procure the piece of machinery that brings Professor X out of his coma. "And they fought happily ever after...??"
