Synopsis for "Generation of Evil"
The members of the X-Men and Generation X are enjoying a fun-filled game of baseball, which is interrupted by the surprising appearance of Colossus and Callisto. Callisto has come to warn the X-Men that Gene Nation intends on carrying on further threats of mayhem. On the anniversary of the Mutant Massacre, the terrorists' leader Marrow intends on detonating a bomb, killing at least one human for every Morlock that died during the massacre.
The X-Men travel to Manhattan and begin scouring the city trying to get a trace on Marrow's activities. They encounter Gene Nation in the sewers beneath a skid row slum. One of the villains, Hemingway, begins pulverizing Colossus while the rest of the crew begin herding enslaved humans through the tunnels. Storm and Callisto find Marrow and Marrow reveals that she was still a child when Storm became leader of the Morlocks. Marrow has a bomb planted inside her chest and challenges Storm to a trial by combat. Marrow stabs Storm with her bone spikes while Storm returns in kind with her daggers. With only seconds to spare before the bomb detonates, Storm rips out Marrow's heart, thus deactivating the bomb. Meanwhile, Mister Sinister learns that Gambit is on his way towards Seattle to try and find Rogue. He ponders upon his past experiences with the thief turned X-Man.

Synopsis for "Bishop to King's Five!"
Bishop, Malcolm and Randall attack the last group of criminals in a New York City nightclub, where they kill most of them. The tide of the battle shifts and the criminals kill Malcolm and Randall in an explosion that also kills almost all of the surviving bad guys, except for two. Bishop is about to avenge Malcolm and Randall’s death, when the X-Men arrive. Bishop shoots at Storm but is actually aiming for the killer behind her. The team mistakes Bishop’s shots as hostility and attack him, which leads to Bishop being impaled. While the X-Men discover the truth, Bishop runs after the last criminal, Styglut, only to pass out in an alley. While unconscious, Bishop dreams about the events preceding this in his own time, when he and the others captured Fitzroy in the sewers. They discovered a recording by Jean Grey in the sewers, proving that the X-Men were killed by one of their own. Bishop contacted the Witness, who reportedly was the last to see the X-Men alive, but the man refused to help. Fitzroy escaped from prison and took an army of criminals to the past. Bishop, Malcolm and Randall followed. Bishop wakes up in the infirmary, convinced that these are the real X-Men. Xavier speaks with Bishop and, moments later, surprises the team by making Bishop the newest X-Man.
