Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven | Comics

When The Mad Titan came to Earth last time in search his son, he invaded New Attilan looking for him and clashed with the King of the Inhumans; Black Bolt. The latter detonated a Terrigen Bomb in the atmosphere that not only destroyed New Attilan but drastically increased their number while also severely affecting the lives of mutants. Following this action, X-Men leader Cyclops have gone totally nuts and tried to start a mutant “Revolution” with a few radical followers of same belief.

This irrational act went horribly wrong and years of working to improve their public image is completely ruined. Now, veteran X-Men member Storm finds herself with a burden on her shoulder to save her own race without the guidance of her mentor and former leader, Professor Charles Xavier. With the worldwide spread of Terrigenesis, humans and mutants are both dying from its exposure that causes what they are calling “M-Pox” or "X-Pox" these days. The age old fear of mutants has re-started among humans once again.

Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven | Comics

Mutant sorceress Illyana Rasputin aka Magik is scouting throughout the whole world seeking for mutant refugees to save them from angry mobs triggered by current mutant hysteria and brings them to X-Haven, current headquarters of X-Men situated in magical dimension of Limbo. Currently, Magik is in New Delhi, India, to save a family and their young mutant girl affected by Terrigen Mist from a tough crowd. She eventually rescued the family before taking a hit and brought them back to Jean Grey School For Higher Learning for safety.

Meanwhile, a time-displaced Jean Grey from Earth-TRN240 was trying to have a simple life on Earth-616 reality and is approached by Storm to join their team, which she declined given her history of ending up dying every time as Marvel Girl no matter what. When Icaman tried to talk to her about it and failed, Storm offered her to take a look into her head using the latter's psychic powers. She realizes that the outbreak of M-Pox caused by Terrigen Mist is not only killing their kind but also sterilizing them and it can mean the end of mutants.

Magik heads straight to Lake Baikal, Russia to recruit her elder brother, former X-Man member Colossus back to their fold during this crisis while their old pal Nightcrawler was being chased by a newly reformed group of Marauders. Storm and Iceman were astounded to discover Old Man Logan is walking among them when he mistakenly attacked Cerebra thinking of it as a Sentinel. The old friends catch up quick about their current state of affairs before Jean finally meets with Logan to bring him back to action.
