DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR! Goodbye, Warren Worthington III—A.K.A. ANGEL —and hello murderous winged monster. It’s up to the Legionnaires to stop his rampage and figure out what’s going on. Good news: The mystical BLACK KNIGHT has come to their aid! Bad news: Angel’s not the only mutant turning into a monster. And NIGHTCRAWLER’s inner, savage beast threatens to completely take control. Meanwhile, in Krakoa, the BANSHEE/GHOST RIDER hybrid known as VOX IGNIS senses a disturbance within the island. Could it be a coincidence that CYPHER has suddenly fallen ill? As the hostility between LEGION and PROFESSOR X grows, the stability of the island becomes less certain.

EIGHT ARMS TO KILL YOU! Deadpool has less than 24 hours to kill Doctor Octopus if he wants into the most elite assassin alliance in the world. Can Doc Ock block a cocked glock? Or will he be filleted and slayed by Wade’s blades? And also…uh…what’s that thing hanging out of Wade’s chest?
