Astonishing X-Men Volume 3 No.8 February 2005 ‘Dangerous Part Two’
Previously in Astonishing X-Men:
Recently, the Xavier Institute For Higher Learning has been rocked by the invention of a ‘cure’ for the mutant gene-and its first successful test on one of their young students, now entirely without his mutant powers. While the X-Men are on a mission fighting a monster in downtown Manhattan, the student commits suicide inside the X-Men’s advanced holographic training facility, the Danger Room.
Also causing a commotion among the X-Men is the return of a teammate long thought dead-Peter Rasputin, a.k.a. Colossus. Particularly affected by Peter’s return is Kitty Pryde, the young X-Man for whom Peter was her first love.
meanwhile, secret dealings between S.H.I.E.L.D and its sinister offshoot S.W.O.R.D. may decide the fate of the X-Men. Breakworld, believing their civilization will be destroyed by an X-Man, are now determined to eradicate mutantkind to protect themselves from disaster-and it looks like S.W.O.R.D. is willing to help them achieve their goal.
