In the Savage Land, the X-Men are ambushed by Sauron. Ka-Zar, Lord of the Savage Land comes to the aid of the X-Men and help them defeat Sauron.
Back at the mansion, Jean is packing up Scott’s room. She reflects on how the mansion was a real home to Scott more than any other X-Men. And with all the power she yielded as Phoenix, she was unable to save her fellow X-Men in their time of need. She lets her rage pour over her and collapses in tears with no one to turn to.
