After the failed Demon invasion from Limbo by N'astirh, S'ym was sent back to Limbo alongside the Soulsword. He took possession of it and used it to regain his strength and carved a portal back to Earth and arrived just as N'astirh was destroyed and he absorbed the mystical energy adding to his own power. S'ym then formed an alliance with Madelyne Prior and there combined powers killed the X-Men and sacrificed Nathan Summers to open the portal to Limbo. Several weeks passed and a group of heroes met at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, along with eight sorcerers, in an attempt to discover a method to close the portal to Limbo and stop the Demons invasion. However, the group was found by a corrupted Hulk and Wolverine and several of the heroes were killed. S'ym himself arrived and the sorcerers attempted to kill him with magic, but he used the Soulsword to absorb the magic and shoot it back at them. The sorcerers were saved by Thor, who absorbed S'ym's power and sacrificed himself to allow others time to escape.

Meanwhile, S'ym tasked Doctor Doom and Mister Fantastic to create a device which would allow them to spread Limbo throughout the multiverse, since magical means were being blocked. They tried to tell S'ym it would take days, but S'ym was concerned by the potential arrival of the Living Tribunal and so wanted to give them only hours.

S'YM eventually found the remaining heroes and attempted to attack them, but was held back long enough for Doctor Strange to help Rachel Summers to call the Phoenix Force to Earth. Madelyne and Rachel fought for control of the Phoenix Force with Madelyne betraying S'ym so she could rule the world. Meanwhile, fighting with the others continued with Baron Mordo seemingly switching sides until S'ym was weakend enough for Mordo to strike a killing blow. However, enough of his spirit survived to possession the adamantium skeleton of the recently deceased Wolverine and used it to killed Pryor, allowing Rachel to take control of the the Phoenix Force and incinerated S'ym completely.
