Plot thus Far;Chapter One
 
Alpha Team Attack
Alpha Team Attack
Hope and Cable return to the present, only to find The Xavier Institute in ruins. In Utopia, Cyclops states that with Selene's attack, only 181 mutants are left on the planet. Mutantkind can't bear any more deaths. The Cuckoos warn Scott that Cerebra picked a new mutant signature: Cable. Cyclops is sure that Hope is with him. He sends Vanisher and Domino to San Franciso to wait for orders. He tells Rogue and Namor to stay and cover Utopia in case of attack. He puts the New Mutants in a holding pattern over the midwest aboard the Blackbird. And finally, he assembles his Alpha Roster [ Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Psylocke, X-23 and Angel ] and have Magik join them. Meanwhile, The Right soldiers attack Cable and Hope, without

success. The Sapien League arrive at the scene and start chasing Cable and Hope. Cyclops and his Alpha Roster teleport to Winchester, but everyone is already gone. Scott emphasizes that nothing and no one is more important than Hope, and orders the X-Men to find her and bring her back to Utopia. Magik teleports the Alpha Roster right above the Sapien League's vans. The X-Men manage to beat them, and Wolverine asks one of them how are they tracking Cable and Hope. X-23 kills another one of them in cold blood to force the other to speak. Nightcrawler is outraged by Laura's killing. Psylocke is upset as she realizes Wolverine, X-23 and Angel are keeping something from the rest of them (During the story, the X-Force members imply they already know who are all those villains. Betsy, Kurt and Peter keep asking who are they, but the X-Forcers don't give them an answer.) Nightcrawler accuses Wolverine and Cyclops of knowing what this is all about. In Washington, Bastion gathers his human council and orders Stryker, Bolivar Trask, Steven Lang, Cameron Hodge and Graydon Creed to kill the girl.
Chapter Two
Cable and Hope keep running away until they reach a market, where they get all the food they can get. Meanwhile Wolverine reveals X-Force's existence to the rest of the X-Men, which leaves Nightcrawler outraged. The Alpha Team contacts Cyclops via telepathy, and Scott tells Kurt not to question his leadership while the girl is not safe yet. Cyclops then orders Cypher to gather all the info he can get, and Doug ends up finding out about the market. Bastion tracks Cable's TO virus and sends Stryker and his Purifiers to kill Hope. Doug once again finds Cable and Hope's location at a hotel, and Cyclops tells the Alpha Team to follow them. The X-Men finally find Cable and Hope fighting with the Purifiers, while Cyclops sends the New Mutants to St. Louis in order to shut down Cameron Hodge's facility where he produces his anti-mutant weaponry.

The Purifiers somehow send Magik to Limbo through magic. They later target Nightcrawler, taking him out as well. The Alpha Team gains the upper hand, and Stryker calls Hodge for reinforcements, while Cable and Hope get in a car and run away. Doug intercepts Stryker's message, and Cyclops orders the New Mutants to not let Hodge send his team to help the Purifiers. Sam and his team engage Hodge's Smiley soldiers, with Karma doing the most damage. Hodge leaves his human body into the machine body and attacks them.

Meanwhile, Wolverine tells Warren to finish the Purifiers as fast as he can. Warren becomes Archangel and kills each one of them. He then cuts Stryker's body in half using his wings. Nightcrawler and Psylocke are shocked by what they see. The Purifiers are down, and Scott sends Ariel to the Alpha team as the new prime teleporter. With Cable and Hope still on the run, Rogue in Utopia's VR Prison feels somehow connected to her. She goes to talk to Scott, as Donald Pierce devilish smiles. Back at Hodge's facility, Karma tries to control him from a distance. He finds her and has two giant spikes cut off her left leg.
Chapter Four
 Cerebra's taken out

At the headquarters of the Right, Hodge rips Karma's leg. Cypher realizes they're all going to die and convinces Warlock to hold up his end. Meanwhile, Cyclops sends Rogue to help Alpha Team track Hope, even though Emma can't detect any psychic or empathic link between them. Wolverine tells Nightcrawler to teleport Rogue in Hope's direction, while the rest of the team will be following them: Angel flying; Logan, X-23

and Ariel in one car; and Colossus and Psylocke in another car. Back at Utopia, Pierce shuts down Cerebra. At the Right's HQ, Warlocke takes the life-force of Hodge and all his soldiers, killing all of them. The New Mutants then tells Emma how Bastion is tracking Cable and Hope. A fighter jet is sent to deal with the Alpha Team. It fires a missile, which hits their first car. Logan and X-23 will heal, Ariel won't. She dies. In Nebraska, the Alpha Team finally reaches Cable and Hope and warns him about how they are tracking them. Cable realizes Hope will only be safe away from him. Rogue (with all their powers) and Kurt set off to escort Hope back to Utopia while Cable and Alpha Team stay behind as a distraction to Bastion.
Chapter Five
Nightcrawler's death
Nightcrawler's death
The New Mutants warn Cyclops of Bastion's towers, and he orders them to come home. Shortly after, Cyclops loses contact with the Alpha and Beta teams. Meanwhile Alpha Team is being attacked by armored soldiers and a jet. Psylocke then uses her TK to send X-23 to the jet so she can take it out. Nightcrawler, Rogue and Hope arrive in Nevada. Kurt is exhausted, but he won't let Rogue borrow his powers as he believes Rogue needs to save her strenght to protect Hope in case something goes wrong. And it goes. Bastion himself suddenly shows up right in front of them. Rogue uses all of her teammates' powers and engages Bastion in a deadly battle. It's brutal! She puts up a good fight, but Bastions gains the upper hand and knocks her out. Bastion comes in Hope's direction. He says he's seen what the world will become because of her and that he can't allow her to live. Bastion stretches his arm in order to kill Hope, but Nightcrawler teleports right in front of her. Kurt ends up with Bastion's arm through his chest. Rogue witnesses everything in despair. Kurt asks God to strengthen him for one last jump. He lands on the rocks in Utopia and tells Hope that he believes in her. He dies. Later, the Alpha Team returns to Utopia. Colossus wants to get Pixie to rescue Illyana. Betsy notices the look on Emma's and Scott's faces. She just asks them "Who?", but Wolverine already knows the answer: "Elf". In Nevada, Bastion repairs himself and tells his followers to prepare for Plan B.
Chapter Six
 The X-Men gather round Kurt's body...
 The X-Men gather round Kurt's body...
Mutants all around Utopia are shocked by Nightcrawler's death, and some of them blame Hope. She can't take this pressure anymore and freaks out. Cyclops talks to her, and the only thing he asks of her is to stay alive. Scott then tells his X-Men he doesn't want Kurt's death to be in vain. He asks Angel to prepare his body and Iceman to put together the religious rites. In the X-Prison, Donald Pierce fools Danger into thinking he's still locked, when in fact he's pretty much free. Bastions orders Pierce to destroy the X-Men's planes. He wants mutants to be stuck in Utopia. Later, Cyclops sends Cannonball's team to rescue Magik in Limbo, and the X-Club to figure out how to bring Bastion's towers down. Meanwhile, in the Sick Bay, Magneto wakes up from his coma and gets to know Hope better. By the time of Kurt's funeral, Beast arrives in the middle of the funeral procession and blames Scott for it. Everybody gathers around Kurt's coffin, as Iceman recites the lyrics of a song. Professor X, Storm, Beast, Colossus, Angel, Emma and Cyclops all remember Kurt with words, while his body is cremated. Wolverine then says he was his best friend and never treated him like an animal. He then warns Hope that she better be worth it.
Hellbound, Chapter One
 The team arrive in Limbo...
 The team arrive in Limbo...
On Utopia Colossus confronts Cyclops, and demands that he be allowed to rescue his sister. Cyclops declines his request, explaining that he needs him by his side, and that he has already  ordered Cannonball to form a team of X-Men to retrieve the teleporter from the hellish dimension. They include Northstar, Anole, Pixie, Trance,  Dazzler, and Gambit. Although some of the mutants are more willing to help than others, they are all teleported to Limbo thanks to the spell Magik taught Pixie during the events of Quest For Magik. They are quickly attacked by the monstrous hordes belonging to the demon N'astirh, and Gambit succumbs to the realm's evil mystical influence, reverting to his Death personality.

I personally love it thus far. RIP Nightcrawler. :(  :nightcrawler:

Yeah me too. I only recently found out about the X-Factor issue. Good thing it isn't exactly directly related to the main story. I haven't been able to pick up that issue yet. The story is great so far. Can't wait to see what'll happen in the end!
