X-Force waits diligently for Cable to recover from his wounds that Magneto gave to him a week ago. Each of them worries for him and gives their thanks in various ways. Feral becomes a little too complacent and begins making jokes. The team gets angry and then they hear Cable suddenly talk and make fun of himself in his current state.
Three days later, Cable is walking around camp and Cannonball meets him on the hillside. Sam asks if he and Bobby along with all the other members of the team can head to head off to tell Xi'an in Madripoor about Illyana's death. Cable tells him that only Bobby and him should go, but Sam tells him he disagrees and he gets a plane prepped for them all.
