The Guardians descend on Utopia and bring the light rings with them. They surround Utopia with the lanterns of ALL colors. Green, Yellow, Red, Pink, Black, Blue, Indigo, Orange. The Guardians force all of the mutants to wear the rings and fight. This is all for their amusement. Jean Gray tried to interfere and she was killed for her efforts. Pretty brutally. This pissed off Wolverine to no end and started the whole thing. Then Apocalypse showed up and they gave him the Black Lantern.

Wolverine (Heart in Ring), Namor, Jubilee
Apocalypse, Archangel, Banshee, Maggot, Sabertooth, Thunderbird, Blink
