Cable has failed in his mission to stop the rise of Apocalypse, but he has not given up the fight. Somewhere in Egypt, he leads a resistance movement against the Living Monolith, who has made Egypt once again the most powerful nation in the world.
Cable and his wife, Aliya, are met by former members of X-Force and Generation X. They have brought with them Storm, Sunfire, and Magneto to aid in a final strike against the ruler of Egypt.
While the Living Monolith waits in his pyramid, the rebels enjoy the last few hours of peace. Cable confesses to Aliya that he feels something is wrong. When the heroes make their way into the pyramid, the Living Monolith is waiting for them. But he is only interested in a few of their number.
As the heroes try to fight back, the Living Monolith almost relishes in their efforts. But a vision of Cyclops makes Cable realize what is going on and he denounces this reality, losing Aliya once again. He reawakens in the chamber where Apocalypse had captured The Twelve.
