Angel finds where Magneto is and the X-Men battle the evil mutants. Shortly after, the Stranger teleports away with Magneto and Toad, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are left behind, and the X-Men invite them to join the group, as they deny, saying that they will go back to Europe. Mastermind is also left behind, and the X-Men take him to the X-Mansion for analyses of his health.

Meanwhile, Magneto tries to force the Stranger into joining his mutants but the Stranger rebels and easily defeat and imprisons Magneto and Toad in a strange cocoon. The X-Men report to the Professor and he warns them that the Stranger could destroy the universe. The X-Men find the Stranger but the Stranger leaves the Earth, taking Magneto and Toad with him.

This is the first appearence of The Stranger.
