Story by Chris Claremont. Art and cover by Marc Silvestri and Dan Green.

When Madelyne Pryor managed to manifest psi-powers to kill the Genoshan psi-probes, the Gengineer demands to review the recordings of the psi-probe. The footage shows a young Madelyne picking flows when she is confronted and demanded answers by a psychic representation of the Gengineer and the Magistrates. When she refuses to answer and he lashes out, she is reborn in a blaze of glory that destroys the island. The "Gengineer", decked out in a Mr. Sinister costume then would run into Madelyne in her Goblin Queen form. She warns them about igniting the match that will bring about an inferno.

This display shocks all gathered to watch the video and the real Gengineer demands to know how Wipeout failed to eliminate her mutant powers. Wipeout is as shocked as they are, telling them that he detected no mutant powers -- latent or otherwise and therefor there was nothing to wipe out. The Gengineer then goes to Madelyne's cell and demands to know who she is, however Madelyne is not forthcoming with anything but mocking answers. When she begins chastizing him for enslaving mutants, and the two debate on the use of mutants as workers in Genoshan society until Chief Anderson reports to him telling him they have word on his son.

In the Genoshan Highlands, Logan and Rogue (with the psyche of Carol Danvers in full control of her body) show Phillip Moreau the facilities where the mutant slaves are kept after their days work. Seeing it's concentration camp style layout, Phillip is shocked at the reality of Genosha's mutant population. They are soon confronted by Chief Anderson who has come to arrest all three, pointing out to Logan and Carol that their cover was blown due to the fact none of the security systems picked up the two "Magistrates" who came in with the Gengineer's son. They are promptly arrested and flown back to the Citadel for final processing. Anderson tells Phillip that due to the fact that he saw things that none save the Magistrates and the director are supposed to see he will remain in custody until his situation is sorted out. As they fly back to the Citadel they are suddenly hit by some freak weather, making both Logan and Carol smile to each other.
