Onslaught Saga | Comics

Professor Charles Xavier and his team of X-Men have previously faced Magneto in his space station Avalon to stop his reign of terror (Fatal Attraction) and during the battle against the master of magnetism and his Acolytes, Magneto extracted the Adamantium from Wolverine's body after being stabbed by him, which left the latter in a withered and dying state. Seeing this, an enraged Xavier immediately attacks Magneto and wiped out his mind, left him in a catatonic state.

Unknowingly, Charles also absorbed the dark essence of Magneto's mind while attacking him, which subconsciously merged with Xavier's consciousness and creates a very powerful psionic entity called Onslaught. Xavier's decades of frustration over the events with mutants made Onslaught take an attempt to forcibly establish his year-old dream of mutant/human peaceful co-existence.

At first, Onslaught wanted to establish Xavier's dreams through the means that Magneto used. However, he later decided to destroy all humans too anyway. He approached X-Men's former nemesis, Juggernaut but upon denial, he tore out the crimson Gem of Cyttorak from Cain Marko and left him beaten. Then Jean Grey was approached by the being to join his cause but she refused the offer too.

Onslaught also tried to recruit Xavier's X-Men to fight against humans but upon denial, he attacked them all and both parties engaged in a fight. It was when Wolverine noted that he looked more like Magneto after Onslaught pretends to be Xavier himself, the monster loose his cool and attacked the team. Onslaught now reveals his true form to the X-Men and claims that he and Xavier are one.

During their fight, Bishop absorbs a huge blast of psionic energy thrown at the X-Men from Onslaught to save his friends, while Cannonball, Cyclops, Gambit, Iceman, Phoenix, Storm and Wolverine continues the fight. Onslaught then abducts the powerful mutant child Franklin Richards of Mister Fantastic and Invisible Woman by posing as a little boy named Charles. Cable's time-displaced brother Nate Grey AKA X-Man was also taken down to have more psionic power from him for himself.

Amidst this chaos, Ozymandias awakens his master Apocalypse who joins Uatu the Watcher in witnessing the end of the "Age of Wonders". The team of Fantastic Four, Avengers, an enraged Hulk and even the villainous Doctor Doom came forward to oppose Onslaught's threat to existence. Together, The Avengers and X-Men formed an alliance against the greatest threat which the world has ever seen but probably all of them will not be able to see the end of it.

To Survive an Onslaught

Various other writers and artists have contributed in this historical Marvel event. Among them, Mark Waid's plot was something that actually stayed faithful to the core event that nearly shattered the entire Marvel universe. The drawings of Andy Kubert in the second ongoing volume of X-Men and Joe Madureira (Avenging Spider-Man – My Friends Can Beat Up Your Friends, Deadpool – The Circle Chase)'s work in Uncanny X-Men are most magnificent.

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.

Fatal Attractions | Comics

Fabian Cortez, the new leader of The Acolytes, attacks on the headquarters of “Project: Wideawake”, a recently developed sentinel program funded by the government at Camp Hayden. The government sponsored mutant super team of X-Factor intervenes and engages The Acolytes there. During the battle between these two teams, Quicksilver is approached by Cortez to be the new leader of the Acolytes as Magneto's rightful heir, to which Quicksilver declines.

X-Men – Fatal Attractions | Comics

Meanwhile, Exodus shows up to Cable's X-Force team to offer them all sanctuary from a mysterious greater power. Exodus in fact came to offer them shelter to Avalon, which was Cable's former headquarter Graymalkin in the past and the mysterious person with greater power is none other than a previously thought-dead Magneto himself, who has taken over the base and upgraded it with Shi'ar technology. Before teleporting with X-Force from Avalon, Cable nearly escapes death from the hands of the mutant master of magnetism.

Along with his team of Acolytes, Magneto came to meet the X-Men at Westchester during the funeral for Colossus' sister Illyana Rasputin, who died of the Legacy Virus that has crippled the entire mutant community for some time. After a brief fight between the X-Men and the Acolytes, Colossus switched his alliance with Magneto as he has lost his faith in the ways of Xavier and the X-Men.

Professor Xavier led the team of Jean Grey, Gambit, Quicksilver, Rogue and Wolverine to Avalon after Magneto unleashes an electromagnetic pulse causing havoc to Earth's entire electrical system, as an answer to "Magneto Protocols" by UN. After getting stabbed by Wolverine in battle, an enraged Magneto forcibly tore out the Adamantium out of Wolverine's body that led him to a near death experience as he was unable to heal himself from major injuries.

This sudden act of violence made Professor X snap and he mind-wipes Magneto in retaliation, leaving him into a vegetative state on Avalon. The X-Men took Wolverine back to their base for treatment as he was being unable to regenerate himself and Colossus left behind to look after Magneto.
