Synopsis for "Under the Magnifying Glass"

This story is a reprint of the comic
X-Force #5.

Somewhere in Europe
Deadpool teleports into Tolliver's lair. He tows the bodies of Juggernaut and Black Tom to give to Tolliver. He offers them to Tolliver and Juggernaut wakes up. Juggernaut thanks Tolliver for saving his butt but is more concerned with the health of his partner in crime. Tolliver says he will take Black Tom to a doctor and that after he is healed, they both will pay him back for his services rendered.

Manhattan
Dr. Karl Lykos walks home with groceries in hand. As he opens his door, he is greeted by the Toad and the Blob. They have captured Karl's girlfriend, Tanya Anderssen and threaten to harm her. Toad wants to use Karl to bring out Sauron. He plans to have Sauron join his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

X-Force's Adirondack base
X-Force is gathered in a large media room watching news coverage of the World Trade Center attacks[1]. On the report, Gideon blasts the team as being behind the hostage situation. As the team tries to figure out what to do, tensions in the team rise.

Warpath runs through the woods and thinks of past Apache tribesmen that have helped the Apache cause. He feels at peace with his ancestry. In the base's Danger Room, Shatterstar trains. His training session is interrupted by Feral who flirts with him and then leaves. Siryn watches their interaction from the control room above. She is greeted by Cable who offers her an official spot on the team. She accepts and understands that there will be difficult times ahead.

Washington, D.C.
Henry Peter Gyrich, Valerie Cooper and Nick Fury attend a meeting by G.W. Bridge. He explains that Cable and his team are a threat to National Security as well as the public at large. He is requesting to be given sanction to bring Cable in. Gyrich feels that he is not up to the job, but the others welcome his decision.

Manhattan
The Brotherhood of Mutants has chained up both Tanya and Karl in what the Toad calls a Genetic template reconfigurator. He explains that he knows of Karl's ability to take on the Sauron persona if he drains the life essence of someone. The Toad states that this is what Tanya is there for. Suddenly he throws the switch and the machine whirs to life. Karl screams and then rises up as Sauron, while Tanya is seen dying...

Morlock Tunnels

Boom Boom and Cannonball are in the kitchen making sandwiches when they are interrupted by Feral. Boom Boom decides this is as good a time as any to confront her about her hurting Sam. Feral tells her to back off and she does not. Tabitha says her peace and then leaves. Feral screams after her that Boom Boom has made a terrible mistake.

Shatterstar and Warpath decide to spar in the woods around the base. Shatterstar expects to have better time training with a human than the interactions of the Danger Room.

continued from last issue...
X-Force starts their battle against the new incarnation of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Shatterstar takes on Sauron in the skies while Warpath and Siryn take on the Toad, Pyro and Blob below. Shatterstar takes out Sauron and feels that he needs bigger guns to take down the rest of the group. He takes off looking for a weapon cache. Meanwhile, Thornn, Masque and Phantazia look for an entrance into the X-Force base. They soon find it and enter in the hangar. X-Force is waiting for them inside.

Outside
Warpath battles the Blob while Siryn knocks out Pyro with a sonic scream. The Toad jumps in and uses a new mutant resin that he is secreting biologically. He seals up her mouth and luckily Shatterstar arrives just in time with his weapons and shoots Toad.

Inside
The Brotherhood turns the lights off in the hangar. This puts out all of X-Force except Feral. She decides to take on her newly revealed sister, Thornn. Cannonball attempts to take out Phantazia but instead has his powers turned against him. Feral fights ferociously with her sister but is knocked out. Thornn vows to get revenge for Feral's past sins anyhow. X-Force decides to take the battle outside.

Outside
Sauron recovers and heads for the base. Cannonball flies directly toward him and Sauron prepares to strike. They meet and Cannonball is immediately impaled by Sauron's claws.

Synopsis for "Flashed Before My Eyes"

This story is a reprint of the comic

Sauron gloats about killing Sam. Boom Boom's yelling causes Cable to have a flashback. We're given a glimpse of Cable's past for almost the rest of the issue. He's the leader of a team called Wild Pack. They're invading a Hydra research facility in search of a stolen component. After dispatching the goons, they get inside the lab. Hammer accidentally triggers a fail-safe and Baron von Strucker's image appears everywhere. He threatens to kill them so they quickly retrieve the device and body slide out of there. It turns out that they were working for A.I.M. Later on, the team goes their separate ways. Cable ends up time sliding into the future where he's actually from. He finds out from his computer, Professor, that there's a new possible awakening. The name of the possible High Lord, Sam Guthrie. Cable decides it is his duty to train Cannonball and heads back in time, six months to a year before his Awakening. Back in the present, Sam isn't waking up. Cable wonders if he truly was a High Lord. He vents his anger on Sauron, by blowing him away.

Synopsis for "Underground and Over the Top"

This story is a reprint of the comic
X-Force #9.

Inside X-Force's Adirondack base
Cable carries the lifeless body of Cannonball to the base medi-lab. Boom Boom provides the covers and stops Sauron from pursuing. Thornn tries to take Boom Boom out and Domino steps in and saves her. Cable sets Sam in the medi-lab and cannot understand why someone he thought would be a 'High-Lord' would be able to die. He finally realizes that if Sam's destiny is such, then he would not have to brood over his body and it would happen whether he likes it or not. Cable sees Sauron following him and shoots him down.

Outside
Phantazia scrambles the groups' thoughts and they do not realize that the Blob is directly in front of them. He attacks and Shatterstar finally harms him when he cuts his mouth. He has never been hurt and is stunned. Rather than fight X-Force he gets scared and jumps off a cliff.

Inside
Feral battles Sauron. She starts to make a mark and then Cable steps in and shoots him from behind. This act ticks off Thornn and she starts slashing at Cable and rips up his face, revealing a bionic face underneath. Masque and Phantazia start to run away and Cable yells at Shatterstar to stop him. He does by stabbing Masque in the chest and lifting him off the floor. The battle seems to be won, and then Samuel Guthrie appears and asks what is going on...

This story is a reprint of the comic

Prologue
Gideon arrives at a mountain chalet and finally gets away from his facade of a life as a corporate businessman. He meets with others who call themselves High-Lords of the Externals. He announces to them that he has made a mistake in training Sunspot and he is not the next High-Lord, but that he is aware of who is. He says that he recommends that they send out Krule to retrieve Cannonball for them and this is so that they keep their involvement quiet if there are problems. Some of the group do not agree with his recommendation. He also states that he is going to take Sunspot out, since he is no longer needed and he has wasted too much time on him and he wasn't even the High-Lord.

MLF safehouse
Weapon X takes on the MLF by himself. He questions his actions but keeps fighting them all and working his way toward his goal of defeating Stryfe. He reaches Stryfe and finds that he is waiting for him. Stryfe takes off his mask and reveals that he looks just like Cable. Weapon X is surprised and confused since he has seen Stryfe and Cable fight each other. Stryfe tells him that maybe Cable is him or that neither is what they seem.

X-Force Headquarters

Bridge immediately goes after Cable. Each fight only one member of equal caliber, except Boom Boom and Cannonball both take on Rictor. Rictor tries to sway them to seeing that Cable is using them. Nobody believes him and Cannonball takes him out.

Cable, meanwhile, heads off to teleport the weapons out of the base so they can blow it up and make their escape. He talks to the 'Professor' and tells him to set the bombs that Domino setup to a 30 second delay that can only be activated by his voice command. He then heads back to join in the fight. Bridge thinks that Cable has left the team and ran off to save his own skin. Cable then shoots him and enters the fray.

Gideon's Ophrah Research Facility

X-Force takes out each of the Weapon: Prime members out one-by-one and is almost surprised at how easy it was. Cable then heads to Domino and tells her that they must leave now and that he has called a SHIELD medivac unit to come and pick up the Weapon: Prime members. While they talk of their win, an explosion suddenly rocks the base. Cable is thrown off and does not understand how the bomb has been activated without his voice command.

The timer starts counting down from 30 seconds and Cable picks up Domino and runs into the tunnels. He does not have time to save X-Force and they have become separated. Cannonball suddenly yells at everyone to gather around him so that he can protect them all with his blast-shield. As soon as he flies to them the primary bomb detonates and the entire mountain base explodes.

A news channel reports that they are not sure what has caused an explosion that registered a 3.5 on the the Richter scale, but that it may have been caused by an underground gas leak.

Adirondack Mountains
Cable hangs over a waterfall, holding an unconscious Domino. He has been swept downstream and was barely safe from the blast of X-Force's old base. Upstream, X-Force is recovering from the blast that has destroyed the base. They were saved by Cannonball's blast-shield and most members of Weapon: Prime have gone missing. Kane tells Sam that he is still going to make them pay for Cable's sins and SHIELD suddenly arrives and tells X-Force to surrender. They ignore the announcement and begin destroying SHIELD's vehicles. On a mountainside, the External, Crule watches and waits to be able to get to Sam since he is no longer protected by Cable.

Downstream, Domino awakens to Cable blaming her for the loss of his teammates as she betrayed them to Tolliver. He bodyslides both of them to his secret base, Graymalkin. Professor greets him and states that he cannot teleport the team up to Graymalkin as they are surrounded by high electromagnetic signatures. He packs weapons and Domino into a ship and they take off to find Tolliver.

Meanwhile
X-Force continues to take out SHIELD agents as well as their vehicles. They begin to get the advantage when Kane pulls his gun on them all. Rictor jumps in and decides that since Cable is out of the picture, that he truly belongs with X-Force. Cannonball makes his way onto the IPAC unit and announces that the fighting is over and that X-Force is commandeering the IPAC unit. Rictor joins them and X-Force takes off.

Ophrah Research Facility
Two scientists discuss their experiment and how they are unsure of the effects if they continue. They feel that their solar absorption machine is going to kill Sunspot. They question if they should bring up their concerns to Gideon and choose to proceed instead. They engage the machine and Sunspot screams out in pain.

Over Newfoundland
X-Force tries to decide where they should go to outrun SHIELD since they are considered felons on the run. They all come to a decision that they should relocate to Camp Verde, New Mexico and Warpath's old reservation. This way no one will know where they are and they should be hidden enough. Suddenly, they are attacked by Crule who crashes through the IPAC window. He grabs a hold of Cannonball and says he will rip him apart to show that even an immortal can die.

Tolliver's Hideout
Domino takes Cable into an underground sewer beneath Tolliver's hideout. She tells him that Tolliver never installed alarms there since he was sure no one would try to enter. Cable blasts a hole in the door and says he is finally going to kill Tolliver. Pico is shown to be waiting for them and is ready with a whip. Cable simply shoots Pico and they enter the catacombs. Domino suddenly starts to apologize frantically and says she had no idea. Then, the true Domino is seen chained up and ready to be rescued. The intruder Domino starts to explain when Deadpool stabs her in the back and Tolliver is seen entering the room from the shadows.

The team decides to head for Gideon's Denver house.

Tolliver's Hideout
Cable watches as the body of the woman he thought was Domino lays on the floor bleeding, while the true Domino is chained to the wall.

He runs to Domino and tries to free her when Deadpool suddenly attacks. He is about to kill Cable when he suddenly is shot in the back. Domino shows that she shot him since Deadpool unintentionally cut her free while they were fighting. They then head outside to stop Tolliver.

SHIELD IPAC Unit
The team arrives in Colorado and Gideon appears on their ship's screen. He offers that X-Force can come after him and Sunspot will die or they can save their friend. Gideon makes Sam promise that if he gives up the location of Sunspot then Sam will never come after the Externals. Sam agrees and they head for New Mexico.

Ophrah Research Facility
Scientists continue to test on Sunspot and see the limit solar energy he can absorb. He screams out in pain. X-Force soon arrives and begins trashing the place looking for Sunspot.

Then, a giant explosion rips the sky and the group begins to look for survivors.

It explodes and Cable teleports off to Graymalkin. A mask and Tolliver's clothes are seen floating on the water. Inside the villa, Deadpool finally recovers and realizes that Vanessa has escaped and is alive. He then teleports away.

Graymalkin
Professor greets Nathan upon his arrival in Graymalkin. Cable immediately heads for his bio-synthesis machine to fix the ripped skin on his face. After he fixes his face, Professor asks why he is so despondent. Cable tells him that he is ready to stop being the prey and that he is ready to be the hunter.

Camp Verde
X-Force arrives at Camp Verde and awaits the status of Cannonball and Sunspot. Then, Boom Boom steps out of the IPAC and announces that they both are fine. She also welcomes Sunspot to the team.
