Synopsis
Some S.W.O.R.D. personnel are sent towards the planet in a fast armored decoy ship as the main ship breaks apart. As it draws fire, Agent Brand, the X-Men and Hisako escape in two smaller pods. The pod carrying Colossus, Shadowcat, Wolverine and Hisako breaks up on entry and they are separated. Hisako starts to freak out a little bit and Wolverine tells her to take off the suit or act like an X-Man because he's putting her on the team. She chooses Armor as her code name. Colossus and Shadowcat fight their way out of their landing site, but word of their presence reaches Powerlord Kruun, who has captured Ord and many of the soldiers. Sydren, Lockheed and other soldiers are still free. Colossus is disturbed by the prophecy that he will commit genocide. While Kitty reassures him that there is no one set future, Cyclops, Emma, Beast and Agent Brand find a large stone mosaic of Colossus crushing the Breakworld and its sun in the tomb where all of the teams were to meet.
