Résumé: A Danger Room exercise is botched due to Storm’s carelessness and she later admits to Cyclops she isn’t sure what purpose being an X-Man serves. A little bit later, she is attacked by Arkon, who has been led to her after he found the hero he sought – Thor – cannot be reached. Storm fights him and so soon do all the X-Men, but then Arkon hurls a lightning bolt at Storm seemingly disintegrating her. The other X-Men overwhelm him and Cyclops figures out that Storm was teleported away, not killed. He uses Arkon’s bolts to teleport them to Arkon’s world as well and, very quickly, they are in a battle. Nightcrawler steals away and tricks an unwilling Storm into revealing her whereabouts. Arkon finally reveals why he abducted Storm. Ptolemaeus has energy rings instead of a sun. Those energy rings failed once before but were restored by a machine built by Iron Man and powered by Thor. The machine broke down. They have managed to repair it, but need to repower it with lightning. Problem being that kind of power would probably mean Storm’s death. Cyclops orders Wolverine and Nightcrawler to retune the device, so it accepts his optic blast energy instead. He uses Storm’s lightning to refuel his optic blast and then manage to reenergize the machine. The X-Men and Arkon part as friends.
