Avengers/X-Men – Bloodties | Comics

Magneto is out of the commission since Professor Charles Xavier has thwarted his evil plan by mind wiping him on Avalon (in Fatal Attractions). And now, one of his former aide Fabian Cortez has now branded himself as "Head of the State" of the island nation Genosha while he terrorizes people over there like a mad tyrant.

He also takes The Acolytes as his own team and abducts Magneto's granddaughter Luna, the human child of Quicksilver and The Inhuman, Crystal with hopes that someone from the family will eventually appear to save her. Getting concerned by Cortez's action on Genosha, Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. approaches The Avengers to look into the matter immediately.

Meanwhile, Professor X and his team of X-Men fly to Genosha on their own to confront Fabian Cortez about this matter, who is seen holding Luna in his lap. He wishes to end Luna's life as a punishment to Quicksilver for not following his father's footsteps and as to Luna, who is born a mere human without any kind of mutant power, disgracing Magneto's mutant bloodline.

Luna's mother Crystal also reaches to Genosha to retrieve her daughter as an Avenger. Her husband Pietro Maximoff, A.K.A. Quicksilver also lands on Genosha with the X-Men at his side. Former X-Man, Colossus is now confused with his siding with The Acolytes to see the violent ways of the maniacal Fabian Cortez in the absence of Magneto. To make this moment even worse than it is now, Magneto's self-proclaimed heir Exodus arrives with a murderous intention.
