Competing cut-throat mutant senators of the Genoshan Empire, the deadly Senator Xavier and the vicious Senator Eisenhardt, are waging war against each other.
Through the work of his diligent & dreaded spy network, known as the X-men, Xavier uncovers evidence compromising Eisenhardt and linking him to a series of assassinations a decade ago, including that of Cardinal Shaw - the leader of the opposition and of a since-destroyed sect that almost became state religion, Church of the Atom.
What is Xavier going to do with that knowledge? Especially after the announcement of the upcoming nuptials of Senator Eisenhardt and Xavier’s own ex-wife, the splendid Raven Darkholme, Countess of Mystique?
When purple-clad ninjas come to storm his Westchester residence in the dead of the night, Xavier wonders if he was wrong to disregard rumours that Eisenhardt is a high-ranking member of a centuries-old secret society known as the Brotherhood…
When those disco armadillos purple-clad ninjas drag him to the dungeons of Senator Eisenhardt’s “hunting lodge” - a palace the size of the City Hall - Charles begins to reassess his strategy.
Lawyer Erik Lehnsherr is representing Charles’ estranged wife Gabrielle as they negotiate David’s custody. By the fifth meeting Charles begins to suspect that Erik is representing his own romantic interests as well.
