The first book in a trilogy starring the X-Men, the most popular super hero team in the world!
Hank McCoy -- the X-Men's Beast -- has been working to find a cure for the deadly Legacy Virus that has been sweeping through the world's mutant population. But the Beast is not alone in this quest for a cure: Sebastian Shaw, the Black King of the dread Hellfire Club, is using the vast resources of his sinister secret organization to develop a cure as well. Together with a mysterious partner, Shaw has set up a research facility on a remote Pacific island in an abandoned scientific base that once belonged to the alien star-spanning warrior race, the Kree. When the X-Men's friend, Moira McTaggart -- the only human infected by the Legacy Virus -- is captured by Shaw's men, the X-Men embark on a mission to rescue her and break forever the power of the Hellfire Club.
