Synopsis for 1st story
Cable informs the team that they have to attack the Eat-More main processing facility. In his vision, a virus called the Girth, which attacks only non-mutants and mutates them grossly, comes from there. Thanks to Eat-More’s owner, outspoken mutant-hating billionaire Teresa Payton, this will lead to conflict between mutants and humans and countless dead. Colossus has already been smuggled in there. When Forge is bugging Eat-More’s HQ, he is captured by Payton’s people. He learns that she lost her daughter in Magneto / Xorn’s attack on New York and that she isn’t behind the virus. Forge flees from her people and returns to X-Force. Hope wants to come along the mission but Cable forbids it and Nemesis tranqs her. They open a teleportation gate to Hope’s home but, after Domino takes her through, the gate breaks down, trapping Dom on the other side. Hoping that Dom will return in time, Cable and Nemesis are to meet Colossus at the Eat-More plant which they plan to destroy before the virus gets out. Something has gone wrong, though, as they find Colossus fighting off his Girth-mutated co-workers. After the event, Hope is brought in for questioning and Havok, as leader of the Avengers Unity Squad, tries to get her to talk about Cable but she stubbornly refuses.
Cable orders the team to attack a civilian company, but with his powers on the fritz will his judgment be brought into question? And see where the mighty Colossus has been since the end of Avengers vs. X-Men!
The Avengers Unity Squad is supposed to promote mutant rights by having Avenges and X-Men work together.
Havok’s brother is, of course, Cyclops, who after the events of Avengers versus X-Men is wanted by the authorities. The Eat-More plot might refer to the real life American restaurant chain Chickfil-A, whose owner made openly anti-gay statements in 2012. Payton’s daughter apparently died during Xorn / Magneto’s attack on New York in New X-Men (1st series) # 150.
