Synopsis of Power of X vol 2: We Are Together Now, You and I
This Marvel Comic issue encompasses four timelines:
- The early days of the X-Men
- The Present
- One-hundred years in the future
- One-thousand years in the future
The Early Days of the X-Men
Professor X and Moira visit Magneto. Xavier wants to repair his relationship with Magneto, and eventually Magneto agrees to do so.
Moira reveals her power of resurrection, allowing Magneto to read her mind and see her previous lives. With this information, Magneto realizes he must agree with Xavier and Moira: they need to follow a long-term plan to ensure the long-term survival of mutantkind.
Magneto and Xavier meet with Cyclops, to reveals his plans to the Sentinel’s Mother Mold. They agree to strike the Mother Mold, which is on a space station that is currently orbiting the sun.
One-hundred years in the future
Cardinal and Rasputin return from their mission of getting their hands on an indexing machine. Krakoa overcomes the encryption of the machine and learn the location of a valuable interface.
War assesses the information as useless, for they would need to overcome the Sentinels to even get close to the interface, which would be asking for death. Apocalypse, however, is more optimistic: he says he will ensure their success in this mission, and he will do so by leading them.
One-thousand years in the future
Librarian and Nimrod create a collective intelligence called Worldmind.
Phalanx find Worldmind and consume it. Then they speed towards Earth. Humans asks the Phalanx what is it that they seek. Their answer: ascension.
