Eight hundred years ago, Exodus was entombed at the foot of the Swiss Alps. Now, he is free, newly refreshed and senses powerful energies in the vicinity. He hungers, and will seek out the source of these energies. Cable is flying his craft over the Alps, on the trail of the mysterious Nate Grey. Suddenly, he suffers a painful foreign memory, that of the man he is after. It is a vision of Cyclops from Nateís world and who offers Nate a helping hand. Nate, meanwhile, moves through the snow-covered mountain pass with Threnody. He, too, receives a painful memory, only his is one of Cableís, from when he was a young boy, growing up in the future. To expel this memory and to prevent its reoccurrence, Nate stops everything, literally everything. Threnody helps him up and they continue their journey. Cable is on his trail and is awestruck that Nate possesses the power to stop nature itself in its tracks. He notices Blaquesmith trying to follow secretly, and his old friend warns him that the boy will not be as easy to deal with as this pocket of psionic residue. Nate finds a house and questions the reasons for him being drawn here. He notices a photograph on the shelf showing Cable and Aliya. He recognizes him as being himself, only older. Cable then appears and tries to speak with Nate, to help him. Nate reacts instinctively and blasts Cable out into the snow. Cable tries again and allows Nate to read a small portion of his memory. Nate notices Moira, Xavier, Sinister and Apocalypse himself in Cableís thoughts. Suddenly, Blaquesmith enters to warn Cable of the presence of a powerful foe outside, and Nate reacts by telling Threnody itís time to leave. Cable tries one last time to reason with him, but Nate destroys the cabin, taking everyone inside the structure out with the blast. He recovers in the snow, but looks up, only to find the figure of Exodus standing before him.
