Illyana dreams about having a conversation with her roommate, Kitty Pryde, where she reveals to her friend an adventure she had after meeting her teammate, Warlock, for the first time. Infected with Warlock’s transmode virus, Illyana fled to Limbo with Lockheed and cured herself. As she tried to teleport back, she lost consciousness and awoke in the home of the X-Men, who didn’t recognize her. Snooping around with Lockheed, Illyana learned that she was on a spaceship and that the X-Men’s “Professor Xavier” was actually a Brood, who had cloned the X-Men to use them as genetic material for new Brood Queens to hatch. Learning about this, the X-Men and Illyana banded together to destroy the Brood. Illyana then teleported the X-men to Limbo, where she cured them of their Brood infection and sent them back to the spaceship to guard the sleeping passengers. Waking up, Illyana decided that the dream was an omen to show her the way – namely get revenge on Forge for killing the X-Men.
