Spoiler Alert ! This X-men limited comic books is intense.
Ellis established the X-Men as protectors of the city which is based in San Francisco. Cyclops, Emma Frost, Beast, Wolverine and Armor, and later, Storm arrived which comprises the new team. From an unusual murder, the X-Men unwrapped a plot of mutant synthesis.
With Suspect X’s “mysterious box” or a “Ghost Box” in, the team returned to San Francisco. They gave the mysterious box to Hank along with a syringe filled with Suspect X’s blood. Hank spoke to Scott that after having gone over Suspect X’s file, it surfaced a talk about a secret war between Suspect X’s people and the murdered mutant from the conception of the story arc. A mysterious place called Tian which is in China is another topic of a talk and that awakens the interest of Wolverine. Hank finds out that Suspect X is just a normal mutant but with his X-gene on a different chromosome after analyzing Suspect X’s blood. To help go into this matter Hank wants to bring Abigail Brand from S.W.O.R.D. in. Scott is against this idea. Against Scott’s wishes, in the end, Agent Brand is brought in who lets the X-Men know that the Ghost Box is a dimensional portal linking different realities. Scott counters it as Brand wants to turn this case into S.W.O.R.D. Before she brings in S.W.O.R.D. Brand gives Scott and the X-Men time to probe into it. The X-Men locate Tian, which is an uncharted area of China that no surveillance or satellite system can get through, not even the Chinese government with the aid of Wolverine. The X-Men discover the headquarters of a secret group of mutants informally referred to by Hank as the “Chinese X-men” as they were able to sneak into Tian. Because of M-Day’s associated effects, they seem to have died.
Emma perceives they have company and that she will have to switch to her diamond form, leaving her without her telepathy, as Storm and Emma investigate the grounded temple. Emma sends the info to Cyclops who is with Beast, Armor, and Wolverine. Scott and Beast discuss Forge, M-Day and its effects on the multiverse as Armor and Logan go off to look at the temple for anyone else. A man who can fire lasers from his fingers was encountered by Armor and Wolverine, while in the presence of the mutant hiding, Storm and Emma lose their powers and Cyclops and Beast encountered a mutant with a strange chameleon mutation. They reveal to the X-Men they have a mutual friend, Forge after the X-Men take down their foes. The team discovers that Forge created the manufactured mutants after Emma interrogates the X-Men’s captives. A counter-strike against the Annexation using a Ghost Box that he acquired is the reason why he created these “mutants.”
The team moves forward were Forge is located and are anxious about the forthcoming conversation. Cyclops and Storm try to reason after some discussion with Forge but he is strongly decided to see his plan through. Forge’s longing to leave behind a legacy and save the world as his insistence seems to shoot from years of being disregarded and neglected. An immensely powerful laser beam into the Ghost Box’s portal was sent by Abigail Brand as Beast initiated. Forge would rather face death than humiliation as Storm tried to convince him to escape. The team escapes as the beam destroys both the Ghost Box and the world from which the invaders came.
