Synopsis Cyclops takes a team to observe Emma's team and learn their fighting style. Earlier, the Dark X-Men and Dark Avengers seem more interested in fighting each other, but Emma leads them to an effective battle protecting civilians from Simon Trask's robotic infected humans. Meanwhile, Magik joins up with another team (X-Force mostly in regular X-Men-style uniforms) to meet up with Wolverine, Dani Moonstar heads to Vegas to make a deal, and Psylocke takes the X-Club to something large and mysterious underwater off the Pacific coast.
