Syrden declares Emma Frost free of Cassandra Nova. Agent Brand uses Ord to bait Powerlord Kruun, but he moves to fast and their ship is intercepted and destroyed, leaving them about to be exposed to the vacuum of space.

Ord; Powerlord Kruun; Sylatin; Danger (off-panel)
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.

Meanwhile Colossus and Shadowcat fight their way through the Breakworld until they are met by Aghanne, who takes them to her place of sanctuary where she tells them she hopes the prophecy means that Colossus reforms their world. Then she gives Kitty and a confused and troubled Piotr a private room for the night. Kruun's aide Sylatin is revealed to be working with S.W.O.R.D. Beast and Agent Brand are caught in an artificially generated snowstorm. And Scott and Emma are shot down by Danger just after Scott tells Emma he loves her.

Synopsis:
Kruun aide Sylatin, thought to be working with S.W.O.R.D. last issue is revealed to be loyal to Kruun and informing him of S.W.O.R.D.'s overtures. Emma taunts Danger, ultimately revealing that she knows that Danger's programming prevents her from directly killing anyone. Emma offers the defeated Danger a way out by helping them. Kitty and Piotr are relaxing in bed together, and Piotr wonders why Kitty is acting the way she is. She tells him that she's realized that happiness is fleeting so you have to grab it before it's gone. Beast is revolted that Kruun would slaughter his own people to stop them, and refuses to continue towards the base with Agent Brand on the grounds that it will be better to come at the moon itself with the whole team. Everyone, including danger, meets up with Sydren, Lockheed and the S.W.O.R.D soldiers. They begin the assault on the moon, only to discover that it is an entirely artificial construct designed to fire a 10-mile-long bullet at the earth. As fighters intercept them, Scott volunteers to take the one man repair craft to cover the main ship's escape, asking Emma to help him convince the team. She does, Scott takes the ship, and is quickly hit. The team makes their getawy while Cyclops floats dying in space.

Powerlord Kruun; Sylatin; Aghanne; Dafi; Danger
Synopsis:
Aghanne and Dafi discuss news that one of the X-Men is dead and their worries about their plans. The remaining X-Men and S.W.O.R.D. split up to head to their next targets. Kruun revives Cyclops to interrogate him while Armor gets herelf and Wolverine captured by trying to rescue some civilians, Beast and Agent Brand further analyze the prophecy, and Shadowcat and Colossus bring Aghanne into the action. Emma reestablishes contact with Scott as Beast and Brand reveal that the prophecy is recent, and reads more like a plan. We then find out that all of this, including Cyclops, Wolverine and Armor's capture was planned telepathically just before Cyclops left the larger ship. Also, Scott's powers work just fine as he demonstrates by blasting Kruun and tearing a huge hole in the roof of his tower, summoning the rest of the X-Men to him for the final attack.

S.W.O.R.D. [Abigail Brand; Sydren; Lockheed];

Powerlord Kruun; Sylatin; Ord; Aghanne; Danger
Synopsis:
The team meets up with Cyclops. Shadowcat, Beast and Agent Brand go to stop the missile. Cyclops, Emma, Colossus and Aghanne take Powerlord Kruun to the power core where Colossus can threaten to blow up the Breakworld if Kruun does not call off the missile, not knowing it is set to fire no matter what Kruun does. The rest of S.W.O.R.D. provides covering fire. Ord gets through the soldiers, and tackles Aghanne. Cyclops orders Colossus into the power source. Aghanne, wearing a protective suit, meets Colossus there and he realizes it was her intent that he destroy the Breakworld all along. On the surface of the space station, Beast and Shadowcat can't figure out how the missile is controlled. Shadowcat phases into it despite the trouble she has with the metal alloy. More than a mile in she finds a hollow space at the tip, but not controls. As the "missile" fires they see that it has no thrusters- it is not a missile, but a bullet headed straight for Earth with Shadowcat inside.

Synopsis:
S.W.O.R.D. has sent the Mega-Sentinel to pick up the X-Men and all other heroes they can find and bring them to S.W.O.R.D.'s orbiting base to find a way to stop the bullet from the Breakworld. Colossus and Aghanne fight in the reactor while the X-Men and Agent Brand's team fight other Breakworld forces outside. Colossus starts to shift back to flesh inside the reactor to prevent Aghanne from using him to destroy the Breakworld, when Ord enters without protection and rips off her helmet. Colossus kills Aghanne and tells the dying Ord that he did it. He saved his world. Meanwhile as the superheroes of Earth try to stop the bullet, Spider-Man realizes his apparently successful scheme to catch it in a big web couldn't possibly have worked, and realizes they've all been made to hallucinate that they stopped it in their own ways. Cyclops and Emma chase the bullet, trying to save Shadowcat, but she's bonded to the bullet and cannot leave. With no options left, she phases the entire bullet through the planet Earth, seemingly at the cost of her life. Colossus, left behind, ruminates on how their happiness was so brief- here, and then, gone.
