X-Factor battles X-Force as Stryfe’s evil plans come to fruition, but can Professor X’s life be saved…by Apocalypse. In the aftermath of the X-Cutioner’s Song, X-Factor gets some much-needed counseling, encounters the maddening mercenary called Random – and finally faces the fearsome Chalker brothers. Helping the mutant X-Patriots leads the team to Genosha, where Madrox must make a frightening choice and when Quicksilver is tempted by Magneto’s Acolytes, which side will he choose. As Forge takes charge, Polaris is targeted, and X-Factor investigates the mysterious Haven. She can help free Wolfsbane from her Genoshan programming, but Haven’s message of enlightenment may mean destruction for the world – and to stop her, a member of X-Factor will die.COLLECTING: VOL. 8: X-FACTOR (1986) 84-100, ANNUAL 8.
