Astonishing X-Men #2 Spoilers

Spoilers: In London, Psylocke warns Angel and Bishop that the others must first break through Farouk’s illusions so she can guide them to him. Bishop points out the Military is watching them as the Ministry of Defense evacuates London for a kilometer around the building.

On the Astral Plane, Rogue, Gambit, Logan, Beast and Fantomex are taken to a theater auditorium, where they are to watch the story of the X-Men, a mind game developed by the Shadow King. Farouk and Charles Xavier are playing with the illusions, each trying to impose their version of reality. The Shadow King wants to manipulate them whereas Xavier wants to wake them up. Farouk uses an illusion of Jean to affect Logan, but he ends up breaking through, remembering she’s gone. The Shadow King then orders the illusions to attack the X-Men. Once the X-Men are victorious, Logan’s heightened senses reveal that Beast is, in fact, Mystique is disguise. Raven explains that she wants to defeat the Shadow King, but knew the X-Men wouldn’t accept her help if she came as herself. Logan realizes that there were two players in this game and that one of them was trying to wake him up and help them. Three doors are presented before them, and the group split up: Rogue and Gambit, Mystique and Fantomex and Logan by himself. Elsewhere, Xavier is confident now that Farouk has lost the first round of their mind game. The Shadow King reminds him that if he wins, the bodies and souls of the X-Men will be his, but if Charles wins... Farouk will allow Xavier to kill the X-Men with mercy.

Another awesome issue.
Astonishing X-men is now the only relevant X-title published. I'm glad Betsy is part of it.
