Jean Grey, Cyclops, Wolverine, and Cable all meet on Muir Island to discover the Phalanx in full force. The Phalanx is trying to co-opt Moira's research so that they can assimilate mutants into the Phalanx collective. Cable and Jean mount a psi-assault while Cyclops and Wolverine sneak in to the laboratory and extract the information the Phalanx seeks. The team then leaves Muir for Tibet where the main Phalanx collective is hiding. Story concludes in Cable #16.
