Issue Synopsis:Cyclops is furious at Corsair and angry at Storm for keeping Corsair's identity a secret. Corsair tries to explain that he believed his sons to have died in the Shi'ar attack, but Cyclops refuses to accept this answer. Their argument is interrupted when the three of them alongside the other X-Men are teleported aboard a Shi'ar dreadnought, where Lord Chancellor Araki informs them that Lilandra has been kidnapped by parties unknown, though the trail leads to Earth. The belligerent Admiral Samedar wants war but Xavier gets them to compromise, leaving the X-Men one day to try and find Lilandra their way. However, they have to leave two hostages and ultimately decide on Nightcrawler and Kitty Pryde. Back on Earth, the X-Men try to enlist the Avengers' help but only find their latest member, Tigra (and their butler). Storm, in the meantime, accompanies Corsair on a trip to New York. There, they are shot at with a psi-scream, a weapon that amplifies their fears by the true culprit: Deathbird and her allies, the Brood. Storm and Corsair are saved by the arrival of the other X-Men and Tigra. While fighting their foes, Deatbird tries to shoot Xavier and ends up firing acid at Colossus instead but the recovered Storm saves him with her weather powers. Storm and Corsair then leave Colossus and Xavier behind to capture the Brood and Deathbird. They fail to do so and find that, in the meantime, Deathbird has attacked again, taking Xavier hostage and apparently killing Colossus. Aboard the Shi'ar dreadnought, Kitty uses the knowledge Xavier has implanted into her brain to hack into the Shi'ar computers.
