In a desperate bid to fend off an endless horde of vampires, the X-Men do the unthinkable: They resurrect Dracula. Will the former Lord of the Vampires go along with Cyclops’ scheme to take down Dracula’s upstart son, Xarus? Meanwhile, Wolverine sets off to rescue Jubilee, unaware of the chilling transformation she has undergone. To attempt to free his former teammate, Wolverine must embark down his darkest path yet.
Dr. Rao explains to Cyclops and Wolverine how Jubilee escaped from the lab, and Wolverine stalks off to bring her back - “one way or another.” As he departs, Storm and Namor report that they've successfully collected the pieces of Dracula's body (as seen in Storm & Gambit and Namor: The First Mutant issue #1, respectively).
Wolverine carves into a trail of vampires left by Xarus, who conspires with a newly transformed Jubilee on the best way to ensnare him. Back on Utopia, a reanimated Dracula makes niceties with Storm and Blade and flirts with Emma. Dracula is unmoved by the news that twelve thousand of his spawn are scattered throughout the city, and takes his leave of Utopia.
An increasingly worried Wolverine claws through a sewer full of Nosferatu vampires, reflecting on how he first met Jubilee when she rescued him – even though she was just a scared young girl. He finally finds his way to her, strung up upside down in a chamber, seemingly prepared to bleed out into a bowl beneath her.
Wolverine free Jubilee from her bonds and she warns him of a threat behind his back. When he turns from her, she sinks her teeth into him – starting his transformation.
