    Synopsis: Clarke has sent the Flight to recover Wolverine, and given them radar that can detect adamantium. Although he doesn't have that any more, they find and confront him for the supposed murder of Jeffries (see last iss.). Logan talks big, then drives away.
    Radius and Mac bicker; Puck breaks it up. Mac flies after Logan and attacks him. Heather sends Murmur and Sasquatch to see who Logan had chained up in a potato sack (Sauron, see Uncanny X-Men 355). The rest help Mac. X-Men arrive and help Logan. They fight; Murmur tries to mind-control Maggott and gets wicked backlash. Sam and Flex talk and realize Logan was in jail when Jeffries was supposedly killed. The Flight realizes Clarke lied and plans to have words with him.
    Lilli wants to go back to Hull House; Clarke has her sedated. Sunfire wants to go back to Japan.
    Note: the encounter with Logan is repeated, from his p.o.v., in Uncanny X-Men 355.
