This issue is 2 of 3 in the story arc entitled "Grey's End"
Synopsis (contains spoilers): A pleasant Grey family reunion is brought to a screeching halt as John Grey, Marvel Girl's grandfather, is gruesomely incinerated by a group of assassins contracted by the #Shiar. #MarvelGirl has little time to mourn his death as she sends out a telepathic scream to the other #XMen and springs into action. The X-Men arrive to lend Rachel a hand, but the assassins are far too speedy in their slaughter. In just 24 short seconds, the Shi'ar Death Commandos rage forth and pick off the Grey family members one by one. At the end of the struggle, the distraught Rachel Grey climbs out of the crumbling ashes that once was her grandparent's home. She's immediately struck down by the Commando's leader who strips the clothes off her back and burns a #Phoenix-shaped tattoo on her skin; a deathmark that will never allow her to hide from the Shi'ar Empire again.
