Synopsis
The X-Men track the killer to a semi-functional spaceship at Chapanga Beach. They find the man working on something he calls a Ghost Box. After a difficult fight Cyclops orders the team out of the ship and has Storm shoot it down with lightning. Storm is distressed that Cyclops's orders might have resulted in her killing the man, but Cyclops is unapologetic. The man is still alive, but chooses death rather than revealing more about his purposes beyond referring to "the Annex".
