Synopsis for "Season of the Witch Part 1 of 4"

The X-Men are in West Africa battling modern-day pirates when a large flash of light envelopes the landscape. Marvel Girl's holo-empathic crystal transports her and Psylocke to the safe threshold of the White Hot Room. Meanwhile, another wave of light rips through Otherworld; stripping away the boundaries between dimensions (branes). As Roma's Great Hall becomes a crowded refuge for all the collapsed dimensions, James Jaspers (merged with the Fury) attempts to overthrow the omniverse. Fortunately, he is quickly thwarted by Captain Britain. Brian is then approached by Saturnyne and his reality is blamed for the trans-temporal tsunami. She storms off to permanently remove Earth-616 and instructs her bodyguards to restrain him. After Brian defeats the group, he stops Saturnyne from using the Celestial Nullifier; but as quickly as he appears, Jaime Braddock destroys her weapon and vanishes. Later, Roma tells them that there is a breach in the walls of causality and if left unchecked all creation will merge into one amorphous blob. She gives Captain Britain and Meggan 48 hours to return to their reality and close the breach or else she will use the nullifier herself. Back in the "heart of the Phoenix", Psylocke is fascinated by all her alternate versions. Marvel Girl, however, has no present alternate self because of her uniqueness. Then as Psylocke looks at the void before her, she spots her insane brother Jaime, who instantly sends the two back to their newly shaped world. The girls land right in front of Braddock Manor, and are suddenly taken aback by the sight of a Sentinel standing before them.
