Battle of the Atom

X-Men of the future come to the present to make sure the original X-Men return to their proper timeline to prevent a supposedly bad future.


When the young Cyclops was apparently killed by Sentinels while on a mission, the older Cyclops disappeared. The young Cyclops was healed by the young mutant Triage and the older Cyclops reappeared. Wolverine's X-Men believed that it is dangerous for the young original X-Men to stay in the present and wanted to send them back. The future X-Men arrived and wanted to send the original X-Men back too. Young Cyclops and Jean Grey escaped from the Jean Grey School. The present and future X-Men hunted the two mutants down but with the distraction provided by Kitty Pryde and Rachel Grey who wanted the original X-Men to make their own choices, they escaped. They seek the help of older Cyclops' X-Men. Wolverine's X-Men and the future X-Men arrive and a fight ensued. Magik seek out young Iceman and Beast in the Jean Grey School and traveled to the future where they found the real X-Men. They convinced the future X-Men to travel to the present to help them stop the fake future X-Men, actually the future's Brotherhood.

In the present, with their cover about to be blown, the Brotherhood revealed their true natures and attacked the present X-Men. They managed to capture all the original X-Men and attempted to send them back. However, they discovered that something prevented the original X-Men from being returned to their proper time. Cyclops' X-Men and the real future X-Men aided Wolverine's X-Men. The Brotherhood traveled to Cape Citadel, where the original X-Men first fought Magneto. The combined forces of Wolverine and Cyclops' X-Men and the future X-Men fought the Brotherhood when S.H.I.E.L.D. arrived. Xorn, revealed to be the future Jean Grey, unleashed S.H.I.E.L.D.'s anti-mutant munitions and Sentinels. In the final fight against the original X-Men, Xorn unleashed her full power and was consumed by it. The X-Men escaped with Magik's teleportation powers while the surviving Brotherhood escaped in their own way.   

In the aftermath, the future X-Men returned to their own timeline with Kymera staying behind to hunt down the remaining Brotherhood.
