The X-Men train together in the Danger Room against simulations of villains Spider-Man fought against. Meanwhile, Rogue and Gambit try to seek revenge against Gambit's former employers, Fenris. They are confronted by a lovestruck and jealous Juggernaut, who tries to come between Rogue and Gambit. They fight for a while until it results in both Gambit's and Juggernaut's apparent deaths. Before Gambit dies, Rogue grants his final wish with a kiss but ends up absorbing his powers. She later contacts the X-Men she'll be hitting the road for a while... alone.
