The book collects Uncanny X-Men 379 and 380, Cable 78, X-Force 101, Wolverine 149 and X-men 99. Don't worry about me giving away any spoilers because there is no real story, but this is the basic plot:
In the two Uncanny X-Men issues, Professor X leaves to lead the Skrulls, Phoenix talks about Cyclops being dead (yes, again), Magneto reveals to Polaris that without her he would lose his rule of Genosha, IceMan and Beast fly over to Genosha, the X-Men play baseball, High Evolutionary appears and talks about how he is a racist and decides to take away all the mutants powers, leaving IceMan and Beast stranded on Genosha with no powers and Beast's hair falls off.
I skipped the Cable and X-Force issues, I do not like the characters and they did not appear to have anything to do with the very vague storyline.
I was looking forward to the Wolverine issue in the hope that he could make the story more interesting, but all he does is complain like an emo about how everything hurts without his healing power. Wolverine gets involved in a fight between Nova and another depowered ex-mutant villain. Then Namorita's New Warriors turn up to help, but actually do nothing as far as I could tell. It is not even a fight! Simply, the good guys and the bad guy are in one panel, and the next panel the bad guy is lying on the ground surrounded by the good guys, and Wolverine spends most of the actual action-time complaining about how much it hurts to use his claws without his healing factor.
At this point, I gave up and did not read the X-Men issue.
