Synopsis (contains spoilers):
The #UltimatumWave strikes Manhattan killing thousands in a massive tidal wave. Among the victims are the wife and child of reverend #WilliamStryker.
At the Xavier school, the #XMen watch news broadcasts of the devastation. Jean tells the team that #Dazzler and #Nightcrawler were killed in the flood. Jean intends on taking a hardline stance against #Magneto. #Rogue wants to help, but Jean doesn't trust because of her recent use of #Banshee. After Jean leaves, #Toad approaches Rogue and tells her that the X-Men don't trust her, and they never will. Rogue flies off to find her own solution to the problem.
Later, a group of angry survivors find William Stryker in Central Park. They remind him that it was a mutant who was responsible for the death of his family. They want him to lead them in an anti-mutant militia and provide him with armor plating confiscated from destroyed #Sentinel remains.
Rogue goes to Canada and finds #Vindicator of #AlphaFlight, who is now revealed to be the former #WeaponX watchdog #JohnWraith. John tells Rogue that he will help her track down former Weapon X agents who now work for Magneto. Rogue and Vindicator find #Sabretooth and #Juggernaut in a pub in Montreal and incapacitates them.
Later, Stryker and his armored death-squad travel upstate hunting down mutants. They find the two-headed #Syndicate and blast one of his heads off.
