Uncanny X-Men #7 Spoilers

Spoilers: It’s been months since Legion banished X-Man and the students to the Age of Apocalypse. Armor and Glob have teamed up with Nate Grey, who is looking for a shard of the M’kraan Crystal as a means to return to Earth-616. Nate takes Armor and Glob to the same laboratory AoA-Sinister created him. They find the Crystal shard, but it was drained long ago and is now useless. Pixie and Rockslide, who have been pursuing their former teammates, make their way to the laboratory and attack Armor and Glob. It’s been revealed that the students parted ways because Pixie and Rockslide believe X-Man must die while Armor believes Nate is their only way back to Earth-616. Pixie explains that they must end Nate now that he’s been weakened to prevent him from destroying their home reality. Armor finally understands Pixie’s point of view and prepares to kill Nate Grey.

Note: None of the X-Men appear in this issue.

Uncanny X-Men #6 Spoilers

Spoilers: In Chernaya, right after shifting back into Archangel, Warren attacks Magneto. Erik tries to lure Archangel back to X-Man’s side to no avail. Magneto blames Betsy for taking away his peace and disappears. Archangel turns his attention to Psylocke and accuses her of putting his bloody Archangel persona back in control. Betsy is devastated. Jean’s team arrives on the scene, and Storm asks Warren to help them find X-Man. Hours later, Archangel leads the X-Men to Nate Grey’s hideout in Canada. Magneto, Blob and Omega Red appear before them. Soon after, X-Man himself makes his presence known. Jean tries to reason with him, who no longer considers himself as her son nor goes by the name Nate, only X-Man. Nate reveals he was the old lady Jean talked to in issue #1. Nothing Jean says gets through him. Betsy suggests subduing him once and for all, to which Jean and Storm agree. All twelve X-Men engage against Nate Grey, who easily overpowers them. Nate is especially irritated with Jubilee, throwing her far way. Jubilee lands right before the New X-Men students, who have just arrived with Madrox and Legion. Armor approaches X-Man, who admits he is dying and that’s why he wants to heal the world before his life comes to an end. Legion can’t take no more of Nate’s nonsense and banishes him to the Age of Apocalypse. Right then, X-Man, Pixie, Armor, Glob and Rockslide find themselves at the Age of Apocalypse, but the students are now donning a different, hellish look.

Uncanny X-Men #5 Spoilers

Spoilers: At X-Man’s hideouts in Canada, Kitty Pryde tells Nate he can’t end wars just by taking away guns. Apocalypse thinks she’s naïve and suggests Nate to just cleanse Earth of its delusions of holiness. X-Man takes his suggestion seriously and simply erases monuments of worship and religion all around the globe. This doesn’t sit well with Kitty, and Nate Grey says that she, as well as Apocalypse, has a place in his council, so she should respect his decisions as he’s trying to listen to all sides. Meanwhile, at the Gulf of Mexico, Jean’s team finishes saving all the oil rig workers. Blob and Omega Red make the oil platform burst into a wild nature environment and disappear. Back at the Xavier Institute, Beast checks the surveillance cameras to detect who has stolen the vaccine from his lab. Glob Herman brings Madrox back to the school’s ruins. Though Madrox still has some reservations, the students lead Legion to Cerebro so he can look for Nate Grey, which he does. David asks the kids to help him save the world. Elsewhere, in Chernaya, Storm’s team is caught up in a civil war while Magneto and Angel watch. Polaris confronts her father and asks about X-Man’s whereabouts. Magneto orders her to stand down and leave. Lorna is fed up and destroys the metal tribute Magneto has created for Nate Grey. Storm and Polaris fight Magneto, while Psylocke has come up with a plan to deal with Angel. Cannonball takes Warren down back to the ground. Betsy tries to reason with Angel, who, in turn, asks her to be by his side again in this new world. Psylocke apologizes and manifest her psychic sword, which she uses to strike down Angel. Her sword somehow reverts X-Man’s manipulations and Warren shifts back into Archangel. Warren blames Betsy for taking away the only peace he’s ever known and prepares to fight.

Uncanny X-Men #4 Spoilers

Spoilers: As Magneto blows up the Xavier Institute, Armor protects the X-Men with her powers while Jean and Psylocke mask their presence, creating an illusion of their deaths. The Horsemen leave thinking they have killed the X-Men, and Jean and Betsy are shocked to learn what Warren was turned into. In British Columbia, Canada, the Horsemen return to their Master, Nate Grey. It’s revealed that Nate has ordered the X-Men’s deaths and kidnapped Kitty, Apocalypse and the Senator. Nate sends a psychic message to the entire world, claiming that he will reshape the world in his image to bring peace and love. Nate then tasks Magneto and Angel to handle war-torn countries, and Blob and Omega to deal with humans taking mother nature’s resources. At the Xavier Institute subbasement level, Legion reveals he created the Madrox army to stop X-Man as he personally feels responsible for him since David created the Age of Apocalypse, where Nate comes from. Jean and Betsy put Legion to sleep, and he’s locked up. Armor is upset and thinks they should be listening to what Legion has to say. At Beast’s lab, Henry experiments with the anti-mutant vaccine, but a vial has gone missing. As reports of catastrophic events continues to come in, Jean decides to divide the X-Men into two teams again and drafts Armor for her team. Hisako declines and decides to stay behind with her fellow students. Storm’s team (Psylocke, Polaris, Nightcrawler, Cannonball and Jubilee) heads to Chernaya, a war-ridden country. Polaris notices the disturbance on the magnetic fields and confirms that Magneto was there. Betsy scans the civilians’ and soldiers’ minds and learns that Magneto and Angel took all their guns to create a metal statue of X-Man. The civilians and the army start fighting each other, and Storm gives them a good old-fashioned torrential thunderstorm. Meanwhile, in the Gulf of Mexico, Jean’s team (Iceman, Northstar, Bishop and X-23) head to an oil platform under attack by Blob and Omega. The X-Men face the Horseman and save the workers. Back at the school, Armor thinks the students should consider Legion’s help. Pixie disagrees, but the majority decides to help him. Glob then meets Madrox and asks for his help, as Legion has a plan to stop X-Man and Jamie might be the only one who can save the world.
