Art & Cover by: Todd Nauck

* X-Force was not solicited for this month. It seems issue #15 (solicited for February 2015) will be the final issue.
Spoilers: Nightcrawler battles the Shadow King-possessed X-Men. He first has the Bamfs teleport Psylocke away and throws Rachel at Colossus, taking out the telepaths first. Psylocke reappears in an abandoned city where she comes across Bloody Bess. Betsy manages to control the Bamfs and defeats Bess. Meanwhile, Kurt then proceeds to slap Storm, hoping her anger is enough to break the SK’s hold on her. The Shadow King loses control of Storm for a brief period and her uncontrolled weather powers help Nightcrawler to take out Iceman and Colossus. Psylocke returns in control of the Crimson Pirates to ambush Kurt.

Spoilers: Rachel, Psylocke and Monet protect The Peak from Brood/Skrulls hybrids sent by the Providian Order. Monet spots Jubilee heading towards the Dove and follows her. They retrieve a defibrillator to save Storm. Meanwhile, Deathbird rips Manifold Tiger's throat out. The alien hybrids outnumber the X-Men, the Shi’ar and A.R.M.O.R. agents. The Providian Order’s leader – Sharada Darthri -- holds them prisoners in her TK-dampening ship. Storm, Jubilee, Monet and Dr. Reyes reach them and help the others as Monet has destroyed the TK-dampener. Sharada tries to escape but is chased by D’keth – the Shi’ar counselor who advised the deaths of the Greys. When D’keth is ambushed, Rachel saves his life and Storm captures Sharada. Deathbird is to remain aboard the peak as she’s in no condition to travel back to the Shi’ar Empire. D’keth asks Rachel how he can repay her for saving his life, and Rachel gives him her memories of the slaughter of the Greys.

Spoilers: ForgetMeNot reveals how Hope implanted hallucinations on Fantomex’s mind so he would think he had defeated X-Force.  While X-Force escaped, Fantomex is on the loose again killing anyone who might be better than him. Mojo is still being held prisoner of X-Force in their HQ and Cable caught Volga solo while the others were asleep. For the past three days, Hope has been talking to ForgetMeNot even though she can’t actually see him; Cable and Marrow have been torturing Volga so that he reveals how to fix Hope; and Psylocke and Domino relieve their anger training with each other (Betsy later hugs her and cries). ForgetMeNot calls Hope on X-Force’s bullshit, saying that they’re supposed to be heroes. He tells her that because of her piggybacking on MeMe’s powers, she should be able to remember their chats. FMN says X-Force has been too distracted to realize the monsters they have become, unable to see the goodness around then: the real MeMe whose echo grabbed a handhold in X-Force’s ship and has been fading ever since. FMN reveals the real MeMe saved his life just because it was the right thing to do. Meanwhile, Volga tells Cable there is no cure for Hope. Cable doesn’t believe him. Volga tells Marrow she never volunteered to the treatment and that they had her drugged to do so. Marrow kills him, which upsets Cable. FMN tells Hope that MeMe wanted to show Hope something to change the way she thinks. FMN shows her a video stating a “Core Corruption underway”. Five hours later, X-Force gathers to turn off MeMe, meaning, that Hope will go back to being in a coma. Psylocke says that even in her sleep, she can sense Hope’s anger.
