Synopsis for 1st story
The psychic bible-sphere continues to try to convert Kurt while the Super-Skrulls try to squeeze the life out of him and the rest of Cyclops' squad. Cyclops orders a 'vertical push', so Kurt takes two of the skrulls with him high into the sky via teleport, dropping them from great heights. With six more Super-Skrulls joining the attack, Scott signals the rest of the X-Men for backup. Pixie is able to evac Scott's team.
The X-Men retreat back to their HQ, and prep for their next attacks. With so many Skrulls in the city, they have no choice but to fight guerilla-style, popping up in random areas and taking out as much Skrull tech and infantry as possible, gathering intel along the way. Scott orders Beast to find a secret weapon to use against the Skrulls, and Kurt wrestles with the sphere about religion conversion.
Emma and the Stepford Cuckoos attempt to combine their power so that Emma can bring down the wall. Emma seems to die trying.
Pixie acts as bait and the members of X-Force are able to kill and capture a Super-Skrull for Hank to use in his search for a secret weapon.
