In order to save mutantkind from the effects of M-Day, Beast and Angel had to gather a team of specialists to help them. They gathered Madison Jeffries, Yuriko Takiguchi and Dr. Nemesis, and then returned to Graymalkin Industries to meet their final member, Dr. Kavita Rao, who was formerly trying to cure mutation. Together, they tried to figure what can turn the X-gene back on. Nemesis brought up pre-mutant DNA from his parents as an example. They also assembled a time travel device to help them locate Cable and the Mutant Messiah in the far future. However, the devices were only prototypes, brought together in a short time. The side effects included biological acceleration so therefore the travelers would have to return to the present in thirty three and a half hours.
