ASTONISHING X-MEN (2004) (#1-68) (MARVEL)(JOSS WHENDON) #17 VARIANT - Plot Synopsis
Astonishing X-Men (2004) #17
Cyclops' mind is shut down. The Beast has become his namesake; mindless and feral. Wolverine is a sissified coward. Colossus has been knocked out cold. The White Queen has maneuvered Kitty Pryde into trapping Emma Frost in a pit below ground (wait a minute, isn't Emma Frost the White Queen? Never mind, we'll get to that later). And now Kitty Pryde is caught in a fantasy where the X-Men are trying to kill her imaginary child and she must free it from Xavier's Mansion. The Hellfire Club's victory over the X-Men is near complete.
However, it's at their moment of triumph that it all begins to unravel. Cassandra Nova reveals her true motive for joining the Hellfire Club and for using its members to her ends. Colossus wakes up. Wolverine gets his mad-on back and Cyclops is up and about the mansion with a revolver in his hand. This one ain't over yet, folks. Not by a long shot! Meanwhile, Ord of the Breakworld and the sentient computer program called Danger identify the mutant they must eliminate to save his home planet: Piotr (Colossus) Rasputin! Written by Joss Whedon and drawn by John Cassaday.
