Domino – Killer Instinct | Comics

As a sharpshooting mercenary Domino always made her own luck but what happens when her powers finally betrays her?

After hanging out with Mercs for Money and then tangling up with X-Force for a while to chase Weapon H, Neena Thurman decides to be soldier of fortune once again. As Domino, she forms a new mercenary group called The Posse with fellow merc Rachel Leighton AKA Diamondback and Inez Temple AKA Outlaw to get back to her old business.

It's Neena's birthday and they took a job to look into the Rural Route D72, where loggers involved in timber piracy are going missing. Inez and Neena go there to face off a gang of Russians and it turns out to be a trap for them. The latter came under heavy fire but the former came to rescue her and deliver a "Fastball Special".

The bait who turned into a creature is a mutant named Adelbert Greywing that they apprehend and their third accomplice Diamondback (not to be confused with Willis Stryker) arrives. Neena decides to let Adelbert tag along with them, probably because of birthday blues but Rachel strongly suggests against her habit of picking up strays.

Back at her apartment, Neena is surprised to see her new besties threw her a party by calling in Agent X, Amadeus Cho, Deadpool, ex-boyfriend club consisting Cable, Colossus and Warpath, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, her friends Kitty Pryde, Pixie and Storm from X-Men, fellow merc Taskmaster and even got The Dazzler to sing at her party.

In the middle of the performance, she suddenly starts having grim flashbacks of her past and then Rachel presents her a pug as a gift, which she names Pip. Outside, Alex and Wade inform Rachel of a bounty on her head placed by Topaz. In her room, an elderly fellow with a walker comes in with his caregiver to wish on her birthday.

The nurse turns out to be the one called Topaz, whom DP was referring to and she viciously unloads her on Domino. While she desperately seeks help from her "Good Luck" power, her attacker thrashed her and then threw her out of the window. As she ran out of luck, Neena thinks of hitting the pavement and nothing to hold on to.

Topaz apparently turned off her mutant power but then her employer tells her to give Neena her juice back and suddenly Spider-Man comes swinging to save her. At the same time, those two are apprehended by Deadpool, Diamondback and Outlaw for breaking in. However, the elderly suddenly got younger and teleported out with his nurse.

Inez and Rachel go to fetch her while Wade stays back to make sure she is okay. Next morning, she meets Amadeus Cho to talk about a way to prevent anyone from switching her power off and sees that she still got it by taking out a group of thugs in park.

The Posse heads to stop a robbery on a riverboat as their next job with Cho hanging out with them. Though it was an inside job from her employer, she took care of the gig and then the freaky couple of her newfound enemies arrive once again. The elderly is much younger now due to her suffering restores years to his life.

While she thought they came here to kill her for that, they blew up the boat they came in to kill her friends and add more sufferings to her life. After being stranded between dream and memories for a while, she gives the attackers a chase. This time Topaz gets a beating before she could even react but still teleported out with her partner.

All of her friends are revealed to be alive because Diamondback sensed that their boat was rigged. Earlier Neena asked Cho for help and he suggests that she train her powers. To start with, he even recommends her taking a twelve hour flight to go to Hong Kong and meet Master of Kung Fu; Shang-Chi to hone her power under his tutelage.

Back home, Inez and Rachel calls in Wade Wilson to get more info on Topaz so they can take her out for their friend. Meanwhile, more flashbacks from her past on Project Armageddon come to haunt her as she readies her at Shang-Chi's dojo.

X-Men Gold – Back To The Basics | Comics

Long before Professor Xavier started training his mutant students, X-Men were always feared by humans unlike other heroes from teams like The Avengers or Fantastic Four. With their recent war with The Inhumans, that phobia has returned again to cause mass hysteria.

Forming a new team with Colossus, Nightcrawler, Old Man Logan, Rachel Grey as Prestige and Storm, Kitty Pryde leads X-Men as their current leader to stop an attack from Terrax the Tamer. Rachel was hoping for an Avenger or Champion member to show up but Logan asks for their leader's instruction.

It took all of their effort just to defeat Terrax and considerable amount of property damage. Upon defeating him with some solid team-work, Kitty talks to civilians present at scene about earning their trust back again and develop a positive image for their race but no one is ready to listen to them.

Back at home, On top of that, they received an invoice from New York's City Register for a lease on Central Park, where Xavier Institute is currently situated. Ororo and Kurt argue about whether situation has improved for them or not, while Rachel practices in Danger Room alongside Armor and Rockslide.

Logan is badly burnt by former ally Magma, as they tried to talk her out and then quickly taken away by Kurt to safety, where they both stumbled onto one of their old enemies; mutant hypnotist Mesmero.

He sends Kurt away using his regained power and took Logan to his secret hideout. Rest of the team was defeated by remaining X-Men members but all Brotherhood members fled to avoid arrest. Director Lydia Nance of Heritage Initiative was already commenting about a Human/Mutant race war on public media and then mayor of New York gets kidnapped by the Brotherhood.

There is a large hidden agenda at play that X-Men later discovers and takes care of. Meanwhile, a mercenary is hunting down mutants in New York City with a deeply-rooted personal vendetta. Elsewhere, mutant thief and occasional X-Men member Gambit took a job to steal a secret nanotech from a secret lab for an anonymous buyer.

Upon learning Olivia Trask has hired him and it was a swarm of self-replicating nanites, he chooses not to deliver. Which eventually caused a stir among two parties and accidentally the nanites became a self-aware Sentinel by merging itself with nearby available computer systems. It quickly overpowers Gambit, then upgraded itself by evolving and engaged all other heroes to create a city-wide havoc.

Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven | Comics

Storm assembled an all-new, extraordinary team of X-Men where she wants Old Man Logan and young Jean Grey to join.

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.

However, it 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 for everyone and years of working to improve their public image is completely ruined within moments. 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. As a result, the age old fear of mutants among humans has re-started once again.

Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven | Comics

Mutant sorceress Illyana Rasputin aka Magik took it upon herself to scout throughout the whole world seeking for any mutant refugees to save them from angry human mobs triggered by current mutant hysteria and brings them all back to X-Haven, the 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 from ever to grow in numbers again and it can mean the end of the mutant race.

Magik heads straight to Lake Baikal, Russia looking for her elder brother, former X-Man member Colossus to recruit him 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 a newly reformed Cerebra thinking of it as a Sentinel. The old friends catch up quick about their current state of affairs before the young Jean finally meets with Logan to bring him back to action.

X-Men – Blinded by the Light | Comics

X-Men – Blinded by the Light | Comics
Rogue is mentally troubled after she has recently dealt with the murderous alien entity known as Hecatomb and absorbed the consciousness of eight billion people along with it. All of the members of the team are re-grouping now and Emma Frost tries to help Rogue out by managing the trapped minds inside her. Omega Sentinel suddenly starts acting weirdly and unexpectedly attacks Emma. It is later revealed that she was possessed by a digitized version of Malice. As Wolverine and Beast senses abnormalities in the mansion atmosphere, Lady Mastermind reveals that she is manipulating their minds and allowed The Marauders to sneak attack on them. In the heat of the battle, a betraying Mystique shot and fatally wounded up her step daughter Rogue.

Other X-Men also soon fell under the attack by The Marauders, with Mystique on their side and the X-Mansion is blown. This is perhaps one of the bad fights for the X-Men, as most of them are injured from their previous battles or in shock at the discovery of their recent enemy. Cable is then ambushed by former X-Man and Apocalypse’s Horseman of Death, Gambit and Japanese mutant Sunfire, who attacked him brutally for almost no seeming reason. Cable managed to survive the initial heat of their combine attack and stops Sunfire but soon disappeared from the scene. The Marauders meets Mister Sinister in his secret hideout with the wounded body of Rogue, which the villain may have any use for.
