Synopsis for "Warhunt!"
The X-Men are plummeting towards the ground. Cyclops recalls in a flashback the events that led them to this scenario (basically, the plot of the previous issue). With only 90 seconds to go before impact, Storm manages to grab both Nightcrawler and Wolverine. Banshee snags Thunderbird and tells Cyclops he is coming back for him. Colossus metals up and hits the ground unscathed. Just as Cyclops is about to hit the ground, Banshee returns and saves him.
Nightcrawler teleports inside the base to open an access hatch and encounters Frog-Man. After a quick fight and a bit of teasing, Nightcrawler takes out Frog-Man and continues through the tunnel. Unbeknown to Nightcrawler, however, Nefaria is watching him via a security camera feed. Kurt opens a hatch for his fellow X-Men. As the team enter, a smoke cloud floats down the tunnel and overtakes them. They burst through a tunnel wall and are met by military soldiers who open fire on them. Colossus blocks most of the bullets. Storm generates a mini-typhoon and flash flood, washing the soldiers down the tunnel. Then the Ani-Men attack. After a long, hard battle in which Thunderbird and Banshee are rendered unconscious, the X-Men prevail and head towards Nefaria’s location. The two injured heroes are left behind.
A while later, Banshee and Thunderbird wake up and try to catch up with the rest of the team. By this time, Nefaria has snuck by his opponents and jumped into his own jet. Seeing him making a getaway, Banshee and Thunderbird pursue him. Thunderbird jumps onto the outer hull of the jet just as it takes off. Alarmed, Banshee tells Thunderbird to jump off the plane so he can blast it with a sonic scream.
Inside the base’s command center, Cyclops shuts down the Doomsmith device. Xavier then telepathically contacts him to to warn him that Thunderbird is in mortal danger. In the air above the mountains, both Xavier (via telepathy) and Banshee plead with Thunderbird to jump from the plane, but the overconfident hero continues his attempts to break into the cockpit. Suddenly, the plane explodes. Xavier screams and collapses as he telepathically senses Thunderbird’s death. Back at the base, the rest of the X-Men look on in horror. An unnerved Cyclops attempts to muster a stoic demeanor.
