The Killing Fields wiki last edited by X35 on 04/25/13 11:39AM View full history

Betrayed by a persecuting humanity, and in a state of emotional pain, one of Professor X's students has turned his (or her) back on the X-Men... and joins Magneto's Brotherhood!

Despite Xavier's favor with the President of the United States, the Sentinels are sent on one last mission to exterminate all of Magneto's followers in the Savage Land.
