Previously in Astonishing X-Men:
All hell has broken loose.
And so has ORD. On The Peak – the orbiting headquarters of S.W.O.R.D. (Sentient Worlds Observation and Response Department) – the alien captive broke out of his cell escaped with the assistance of DANGER. Armed with the knowledge of who will destroy his people-the X-Man Colossus – there is no telling what Ord is capable of.
Meanwhile, at Xavier’s, the X-Men have been defeated by the recently-returned Hellfire Club. Cyclops was left comatose, Wolverine reverted to a childlike state, Beast turned into a monster and Colossus was knocked out cold.
The only member left to take on the Hellfire Club is Kitty Pryde. After defeating the treacherous Emma Frost and leaving her underground, Kitty comes face-to-face with the most mysterious member of the Hellfire Club – Perfection. However, Perfection has thrown kitty for a bit of loop when she reveals herself to actually be…The White Queen!
