There is news that Nightcrawler was seen on a ship traveling to Genosha with other mutants, so the X-Men try to find him. Meanwhile, Nightcrawler and the other travellers (including Squidboy, Vindaloo, Network, Shatter, Pixie, Feral, and other mutants) are intercepted by "pirates", who really are Spiral and the Reavers, looking for fighters within the pool of high level mutants to take them to Mojo. In the deep night the pirates attack the ship carrying the mutants to Genosha and the crew is worried about the change of course towards Genosha. Nightcrawler defeats the pirates. Wolverine, Beast, Shadowcat, and Forge come to pick him up and take him back to the mansion. But he declines saying he wants to make sure the mutants make it safely to Genosha.
