Picking up where the second one ends, mutants are still feared, Cyclops is devastated by Jean Grey's death and goes back to investigate the site where she disappeared, but, when Storm and Wolverine follow, they discover her unconscious body. She is different now, she's even more powerful but refers to herself as "the Phoenix" and is distant and mentally disrupted. Meanwhile a scientific cure is released to the world made from the blood of a mutant boy that can cancel out the mutant gene. Magneto wishes to kill the boy and prevent any mutant to go so low as to become human again. With Jean Grey unstable, both sides of mutants fight to control her unbridled power for the fate of man kind. Mutants will die, people will suffer, the X-Men will fight for our protection.

Magneto: As long as the cure exists, our war will rage. Your cities will not be safe. Your streets will not be safe. You will not be safe.
Magneto: (speaking to Jean) Do you know what I saw when I looked at you? I saw the next stage in evolution, what Charles and I dreamt of finding.
Pyro: Careful with this one. Cane Marko. Solitary confinement. Now, check this out. "Prisoner must be kept confined at all times - if he builds any momentum, no object can stop him."
Magneto: How facinating.
[Man on Speaker]: Where is Magneto? Raven. Raven, I asked you a question.
Mystique: I don't answer to my slave name.
[Man on Speaker]: Raven Darkholme. That's your real name, isn't it? Or is he convinced you don't have a family anymore?
Mystique: My family tried to kill me, you pathetic meat sack.
