Synopsis
The White Queen induces hallucinations causing Shadowcat to think that she and Colossus have a son who is in danger. She frees her "son," in reality removing the Shi'ar artificial body housing Cassandra Nova's intelligence. Cassandra Nova appears to have won until Cyclops arrives. Lockheed is revealed to be the "mole" working for S.W.O.R.D. Wolverine's personality is restored by beer.
