Synopsis for "Nation X, Chapter 3"
Nightcrawler urges Cyclops to shoot down the incoming plane, for it is carrying five Predator X. Cyclops complies and destroys the plane; Scalphunter and four of five of the Predator X managed to survive. Cyclops then coordinates the X-Men for combat. He tells Namor to dive in the water after Predator 002, but he tells Magneto to stay put. He then separates all the other X-Men into two groups to take out the other three. However, Magneto intervenes a little, magnetically ripping of the armor off one of the Predators, before Colossus pulls its mouth open and Boom-Boom sends one of her explosive psionic sphere in it, causing it to explode. Meanwhile, Atlantean warriors gather to assist Namor against his Predator.
Inside Utopia, Predator 006 infiltrates the compound. Rogue instructs Gentle, Rockslide, Anole, Dust, Surge, Mercury and Armor to give her their powers, where she uses in combination to destroy the Predator from the inside.
Outside, Cyclops' group is battling the last Predator. Then suddenly, the Stepford Cuckoos rear in pain, before the fiery Phoenix flies out of them. Cyclops then attempts for kill the Predator, when Scalphunter takes the shot for him. As Emma arrives on the scene, Cyclops explains to her what just happened. And with the Cuckoos out cold, they need psychic coordination, meaning that they have to extract the Void sliver from her forehead. However, he first thinks of who sent the Predators and why. He assigns Dangers the duty of interrogating Scalphunter, who placed him in a holographic island in the middle of nowhere.
Magneto’s return has stunned the X-Men, but that’s not the only surprise they’re in for as a herd of Predator X’s come hungry for mutant tar tar. The hits just keep on coming, but can the X-Men, still nursing their wounds from UTOPIA, deal with all this?
