With an army of Genoshan mutants at his disposal following the Legacy Virus' cure, Magneto declared war on humanity, kidnapping Xavier to Genosha. Jean Grey recruited an ad-hoc team of X-Men including Dazzler, superstrong former Acolyte Frenzy (Joanne Cargill), Alpha Flight's speedster Northstar, the invulnerable Omerta, Sunfire's atomic sister Sunpyre and the transparent Wraith.
