Synopsis
The Brotherhood makes its play against Senator Kelly. Kitty's future self, which is in possession of her present body, helps the X-Men defeat Mystique and her crew (thus changing the future). As soon as Kelly is saved, Kitty's psyche returns from the future to her own body. A month later, in response to the attack, Kelly puts Gyrich in charge of a top secret Sentinel program called "Project Wideawake."
