  • Wow, that all I got to say. Having something that can wipe out the human race in 4 days is simply cool. Then having those Phanlaxs on top of that made it exciting episode. Mr. Sinster teaming up with Force and Beast, the unlikely heroes try to stop the Phmoreless

    Mr. Sinster, Force, Magento, Beast, that girl on Astorid M with the smoke powers teaming up to stop this was cool. Seeing Mr. Sinster saving Cyclops life was cool, but Cy tried to blast him to kingdom come, makes you laugh. Then he wanted to hunt him after they won, shows you how much of a person Cy is.



    There was no real battle, more of a cat and mouse cat, which made this episode go by quick. Overall 4th best episode with 2 parts.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Hodge: Magneto! The beard's a new look for you, but you manage to pull it off! (Magneto blasts him) Some people just can't take a compliment!

    • Xavier: Even if you've given up hope for yourself Magnus, there are reasons to work for a better future. Here comes one now.
      (Quicksilver approaches the group)
      Magneto: Pietro...Thank God you're safe.
      Beast: Sentiments shared by every parent on Earth.

    • Hodge: Wolverine gets a gold star! Thanks to your...help...the Phalanx can now assimilate mutants! The X-Factor is ours!
      Wolverine: The only thing...I'll help you do...is carve your tombstone.

  • NOTES (3)

    • The only episode in the series where the recap did not display the franchise logo or have the previously on X-Men announcement at the beginning. It starts right away to a scene where Mr. Sinister is reaching Xavier for help.

    • Cameron Hodge (from "Enter Magneto" & "Slave Island") appears as the lead personification of the Phalanx.

    • Originally broadcasted as a one-hour special, back to back with its first part.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Cameron Hodge: Is it alive, or is it Phalanx?
      Hodge's quip is a reference to the classic Memorex slogan, "Is it live, or is it Memorex?"
