When Mark abruptly leaves to save a cruise ship from a kaiju, Anissa joins him and effortlessly kills it, saving the passengers.

The X-Men take in the Jean look-alike, who Beast determines is the real Jean. Mister Sinister contacts the other Jean, revealing her to be a clone he created, before asserting control of her and turning her into the Goblin Queen. She kidnaps Nathan and hands him off to Sinister before subjecting the X-Men to horrific visions until the real Jean confronts her telepathically, during which the latter reminds her of their shared memories. Morph leads the X-Men to one of Sinister’s labs, where they find him infecting Nathan with a techno-organic virus under the belief that it will turn him into the ultimate mutant. Free of Sinister’s control, the clone turns on him, but Nathan is left gravely ill. The clone and Cyclops task Bishop with taking Nathan to the future in the hopes of finding a cure there. Afterward, the clone leaves the X-Men, taking the name Madelyne Pryor. Meanwhile, Storm meets with Forge who tells her he can restore her powers.
