Astonishing X-Men Volume 3 No.58 March 2013
When the Shi’ar warrior called Warbird learned about the discovery of an artifact in Egypt with ties to Shi’ar history, she caused an international incident by journeying to Cairo to retrieve it. There, she was confronted and incapacitated by the sole survivor of the Fianden, an alien race of artists wiped out by the Shi’ar eons ago. Unfortunately. Warbird had been tracked to Egypt by a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who had been secretly watching her for months, and she regained consciousness in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody. After her allies in the X-Men helped her to escape, Warbird took to the streets of Cairo in search of answers – about the Shi’ar’s shameful past, about her own repressed artistic yearnings that had been reawakened by her contact with the artifact.
