The X-Men are no more! Or they aren't until issue #500 of The Uncanny X-Men. After telling Iron Man that the X-Men are no more (not permanantly, just for a while), Cyclops takes a well earned break in the Savage Land with girlfriend Emma Frost, and even meet up with friends Ka-Zar and Shanna. Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Colossus venture through Europe, and Angel discovers something weirds going on in San Francisco: the whole place has been taken back to the 60s!
As Emma and Cyclops travel to San Francisco, Angel is stuck in the 60s: revealeed to be some sort of pshycic projection. In Europe, Colossus, Nightcrawler and Wolverine visit are in Russia visiting Colossus's parents grave. They visit a bar and after a heart-to-heart, get into a bar scrawl. They decide to leave, but some trouble is brewing on the horizon...
Cyclops and Emma enter the projection, so enter: HIPPY CYCLOPS AND HIPPY EMMA! But Emma isn't exactly a fan of the love children's fashion sense! And over in Europe, Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Colossus are in trouble with the Red Room. But these aren't another government unit bent on destroying mutants, this unit wants to know something about the Decimation!
As Colossus is being questioned on the Decimation, he refuses to give up the truth, even as they constantly torture Wolverine! But, Nightcrawler has a plan up his sleeve, and the three escape, only to be confronted by an old villain! And in San Francisco, Emma and Cyclops follow a lead to a trap, which they're aware of, to find certain people at the end of it!
The conclusion of Divided We Stand is here! As Emma and Cyclops battle they're way through hippie Hepzibah, Angel, Iceman and Warpath, Emma finds the source, and they take this person out, causing the city to revert back to normal, and in doing so, find a new home for the X-Men! And in Russia, the trio manage to defeat Omega Red, and head home!
