APPEARING: Beast, Colossus, Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Mystique, Phoenix Force (first appearance), Professor X, Kitty Pryde (first appearance), Theresa Pryde (first appearance), Storm, Wolverine
IN BRIEF: Kitty’s mom lets her enroll at Xavier’s provided she only learns to control her powers and doesn’t become an X-Man. Jean is besieged by images of a fiery bird, something she’s experienced before.

ULTXM 22: “Hellfire and Brimstone Part Two of Five” (Mark Millar/Adam Kubert/Danny Miki/Chris Eliopoulos/Dave Stewart)
APPEARING: Beast, Blob, George W. Bush, Colossus, Cyclops, Kathleen (first appearance), Marvel Girl, Orb-Weaver (first appearance), Professor X, Prosimian (first appearance), Kitty Pryde, Quicksilver, Saluki (first appearance), Scarlet Witch, Sumatran (first appearance, dies), Sen. Andrew Border Turk (first appearance, named in ULTX 23), Wolverine
IN BRIEF: A group of animal evolutionaries recruited into the Brotherhood becomes disenchanted with the post-Magneto regime. Cyclops and Wolverine come to blows over Jean, who has another hallucinatory attack.

ULTXM 23: “Hellfire and Brimstone Part Three of Five” (Mark Millar/Kaare Andrews/Rusty Beach/Chris Eliopoulos/Dave McCaig & Chris Sotomayor)
APPEARING: Beast, Blob, Colossus, Cyclops, Mr. Drake, Mrs. Drake, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Orb-Weaver, Prosimian, Kitty Pryde, Saluki, Storm, Andrew Turk, Wolverine
IN BRIEF: Xavier sends Scott and Logan on a mission to rescue Marines lost in the Savage Land in effort to quell their differences. Beast, who has been conversing online with a girl unaware it’s the Blob, lets slip that Magneto is alive. Bobby’s parents pressure him into going forward with the lawsuit against Xavier. Scott and Logan arrive in the Savage Land and discover Kitty stowed away. The evolutionaries force Blob to arrange a meeting with the Beast.

ULTXM 24: “Hellfire and Brimstone Part Four of Five” (Mark Millar/Kaare Andrews/Chris Eliopoulos/Dave McCaig)
APPEARING: Beast, Colossus, Cyclops, Mr. Drake, Mrs. Drake, Iceman, Marvel Girl, Orb-Weaver, Professor X, Prosimian, Kitty Pryde, Saluki, Sebastian Shaw (first appearance), Storm, Andrew Turk, Wolverine
IN BRIEF: Iceman publicly renounces his intent to sue Xavier. Scott and Logan discover that the computer that ran Magneto’s stronghold transformed the Marines into killer cyborgs. The Hellfire Club, who has been helping bankroll Xavier, decides that Jean is ready to host the Phoenix.

ULTXM 25: “Hellfire and Brimstone Part Five of Five” (Mark Millar/Adam Kubert/Danny Miki/Chris Eliopoulos/Chris Sotomayor)
APPEARING: Beast, Blob, Colossus, Marvel Girl, Phoenix Force, Professor X, Prosimian (dies), Vladimir Putin (BTS, expresses interest in meeting Colossus at the party), Sebastian Shaw (dies), Storm (NOTE: There are several celebrity cameos, likely one-offs for Earth-1610 and without needs for chronologies, but I’ll list them in case I’m wrong, including a Mr. Turner [Ted?], Arnold Schwarzenegger, Marvel editors Mike Marts and Mike Raicht, and Alan Greenspan)
IN BRIEF: The X-Men are invited to a soiree at the Hellfire Club, only to be captured and force to watch as Jean is made to host the Phoenix. The Phoenix turns on the Hellfire Club and incinerates them, while transferring Shaw’s wealth to Xavier. Xavier snaps Jean out of it, but the X-Men learn that Beast was attacked by the Brotherhood and, with what they’ve learned from him, restore Magneto’s mind. Magneto reassumes command of the Brotherhood.
