The informed reader knows that the X-Men were originally cancelled in March 1970 with their 66th issue. The issues that followed were actually reprints of previous issues, whereas for next few years, the X-Men would occasionally guest-star in some other comics. Eventually, the team was reinvented in 1975 with Giant-Size X-Men #1, and the adventures of these all-new, all-different X-Men were continued in X-Men (1st series) #94 onwards. This page will keep track of all the team's appearances and flashback scenes set in the gap during between X-Men (1st series) #66 and Giant Size X-Men #1.

Generations ago natives settled and built a city there and slowly those people were changed by the magic. They evolved into winged creatures called Nhu’Ghari, that exploid the other regions of the Savage Land. The old and ill people that are sent to the city are used as slaves. Some of the Nhu’Ghari realized the wrongness and created this outpost, among them is an even more mutated female named Avia.

XMHY #4 03 / 2000 Magneto explains to Jean how he survived in UXM #63 : Beneath the crushed building there was an underground river in which he fell into, he was swept away till he emerged in the Nhu’Gari city. There he used his limited telepathic capabilities to project his astral form, while his body is hidden in a cave to heal. The "magic" is nothing more than radiation from deep within the earth that comes to the surface with vulcanic activity. Now another eruption is near so he orders Amphibius to fetch his body from that cave. Magneto merges back into his own body. Scott and Hank make their way to the prison cell, free Jean and together they defeat and capture Magneto.

XMHY #11 10 / 2000 Three pages retell events from UXM #58-59, Larry Trask programmed the Sentinels to destroy all mutants. In the aftermath of that story some of the damaged Sentinels parts assembled into one half-functional robot that wanted tro carry out it’s mission and reacted to Ashley Martin. Yet because it’s repair sequence was still incomplete it could not terminate the young girl, but fell under the control of her mutant power.
During the battle Beast and Xavier discover that young Ashley has some control over the Sentinel. While it attacks Xavier and Beast it stops when the girl tells him so. As Ashley’s mother enters the scene the Sentinel registers a human signature and remembers his programming to destroy all mutants. Ashley realizes that her toy has become a threat and dissects the robot with her psychokinetic power; but can a 10-year-old girl handle such vast power ?
Scott, Jean and Candy are able to locate the captured Avia on the ship, but not the Angel. The leader of the freaks approaches them, he is called Krueger and with his negating powers he cancels the X-Men’s abilities. All three are rendered unconscios. Then he contacts the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (Blob, Ununs, Mastermind) that he has three more X-Men to sell (, by costume he mistakes Candy for a mutant too).
Amphibius and Magneto discover that they are not alone on the island. From afar they spy on Lycos and amnesiac Bobby.

The three X-Men wonder what to do as suddenly Sauron hypnotit´zes Havok into helping him to fight Magneto. Iceman discover the power enhancing device nearby and destroys it. Magneto now almost powerless falls into a volcano. While they are distracted Sauron hypnotizes the three X-Men and makes them forget the whole fight. (Necessary – since in UXM 114 the X-Men will be surprised to see Sauron alive)
XMHY #13 12 / 2000 Xavier is forced to mentally sever Ashley’s conscious mind with the area that controls her mutation since she can’t cope her mutant powers at her young age.
Blob orders Mastermind to make Marvel Girl think he was Cyclops, because he wants to get intimate with her, but telepathically she senses the illusion.

Then they rescue the injured Avia from the ship and convince the uugly freks to find a real life. (All of them will reappear in Alpha Flight #22 as a criminal circus crew)
Candy now has finally the chance to tell her important message. She alerts Warren that his mother is about to marry his uncle Burt, aka the supervillain called the Dazzler, who also murdered his father. (It happened in Ka-Zar #2-3 and Marvel Tales #30) During that battle Burt also learned the secret identity of Warren.
Avia is put in the medilab and Alex and Lorna have to stay at home, while the original five depart to the Worthington estate.
XMHY #15 02 / 2001 The X-Men do not know hot to prevent the wedding. Dr. Stuart, a friend of the family, tells Warren that the knoledge of him being a mutant would surely kill his mother who already has a weak heart. Later though the Beast discovers that Kathryn Worthington is purposely poisoned by Burt working together Dr. Stuart, who revelas himself as a mutant-hater. Even though the team takes down the Dazzler and his accomplice they are to late to do Kathryn any good. As she is dying of the poison Warren takes her in his arms and flies her through the clouds.
Lorna Dane goes shopping into Salem Center in disguise. Yet she is recognized by Tad Carter, an telepatic and telekinetic mutant from Amazing Adult Fantasies #14 (released in 1962 !, reprinted in X-Men Rarities). He makes her topple and puts her under mental control. Nine hours later she returns to the mansion with no memory of the incident.

XMHY #16 03 / 2001 Angry that the untrained Havok and Lorna departed on their own, Cyclops, Jean Iceman and Beast follow them to the Himalayas. Once there they discover the fate of the First Line, Marvel’s Lost Generation of Heroes. Most of them died defending the earth against a Skrull attack, Yeti went insane and Pixie found a new home among the Inhumans‘s great refuge. They thought it better not to alert the media of the hewroes‘ demise to prevent a mass panic. The signal cerebro reacted too actually was the big Inhumans‘ city.
Angel and Candy deal with the authorities and oversee that the villains are put into custody. Thanks to Jean a telepathic inhibitor prevents Dr. Stuart and the Dazzler from revealing Warren as the mutant Angel.
Xavier and Mrs. Teri Martin are glad to see that Ashley has no side-effects of her mental surgery.
While the X-Men are away Kraven breaks into the mansion and easily defeats Avia in the medilab. Upon the team‘s return he dares one of them to a duel.
XMHY #17 04 / 2001 Kraven has given Avia a slow poison and will only give the X-Men the antidote, if the Beast agrees to a fight one-on-one. Kraven sees in him the ultimate opponent of both man and aninal at once, through fighting him Kraven wants to sharpen his skills. The battle is held on the whole Xavier estate and as Hank has to discover, Kraven has laid many traps. He is hit by some drugged darts to slow his reflexes, but unexpectedly they also cause the Beast to loose his intellect and morals. Hank almost falls into a berserker rage and easily defeats the Hunter almost killing him, if not for his teammates. Kraven reveals the antidote for Avia.
Tad Carter is seen with a group of people led by a telepath called Mr. Messenger. They talk about some slowaging effect and their plans for Lorna Dane. The others accuse Tad of being too intrested in the x-woman. Right in the middle of the Beasts battle with Kraven, they telepathically take control Lorna and make her use her magnetic powers to fly (which she never has been able to do before). Havok can only watch helplessly as she floats away.
Xavier is till with the Martins in Illinois and welcomes his old friend FBI agent Duncan, who helps to clear the area of the Sentinel‘s remains. It seems that some romantic tension builds between the professor and Teri Martin.
XMHY #18 05 / 2001 The Angel comes back from his home, where everything regarding his mother’s death has been taken care of. Suddenly in mid-air he passes the flying Lorna dane, who doesn’t respond to him. He watches her enter a house and calls the X-Men. Inside Lorna is introduced to the Promise, the group of mutants assembled around Messenger. They know that a war between mutants and humans is inevitable and they want to lead the world after that war, so they put themselves in cryogenic sleep and check the status of sociaty every 10 years. During these occasions they recruit more members and now it’s Lorna’s turn. Meanwhile the other X-Men have arrived, but as they try to enter the house they face a barrier. Then one of the promise uses illusion powers on the team and they unknowingly fight each other till they are all unconscious. The promise decides to take both Havok and Lorna, since they aren’t as much indoctrinated by Xavier as the rest of the X-Men; also a female member wants to have the Angel along for his beauty. All three are put into cryogenic sleep.
Teri Martin tells Xavier how she had to raise Ashley alone, since shortly before she was born, her father died while working for the navy on a nuclear submarine. Although she now has more problems considering that her daughter is a mutant, she is glad to have met Xavier.
XMHY #19 06 / 2001 Cyclops, Iceman, Marvel Girl and Beast find themselves in a strange chamber with prehistoric vegetation. Suddenly they receive a telepathic message from Messenger, who explains them how he assembled his group over decades and that they will shape the future of both humanity and mutantkind, once when they emerge from hibernation. He then bids them farewell and activates the cryochambers. Left alone the four mutants examine their prison, which seems to be miles below the surface, and discover a strange tunnel. It leads to a giant vertical shaft, but once they try to reach the centerpiece, they are sucked up by a big air fan. Cyclops has to destroy the device, which results in the team falling down the vent. Jean cushions the long fall, but most are rendered unconsious anyway. The Mole Man, who had been watching for quite some time, stuns the Beast, the only one still awake.
Meanwhile one of the cryopods opens again. It is the blonde female of the Promise. She frees the Angel, but says that they can’t rescue Alex and Lorna from their tubes without killing them.
Xavier feels that something happened to his X-Men, he can’t maintain telepathic contact.
Epilogue of XMHY #12 11 / 2000 A few days after the main story of XMHY 12, Magneto blasts himself out of the volcano. This takes a lot out of him and he passes out. Later he is discovered by Namor who undersea felt the shockwaves of the fight and investigates. (Scene taken from Fantastic Four #102, re-drawn by Byrne, uses same dialogue)
Fantastic Four #102 09 / 1970 Namor investigates a mysterious shockwave in Antarctica. He pinpoints the origin as a primitive island. There he fights his way through some flying reptiles and finds the unconscious Magneto in the aftermath of an explosion. Not much later the Fantastic Four find themselves under attack. In Namor’s ship, Magneto uses the equipment to increase his faded powers. He then talks to Namor about pooling their ressources against the human race, as both mutants and atlanteans are outcasts. The Fantastic Four trace the source of the attack to Atlantis, Reed launches a sonic probe, but as Magneto from afar uses his powers once more to turn the Baxter Building‘s security devices against the team, the Thing presses a button that launches a missile against Atlantis. Namor is able to intercept the missile, but is now convinced that even the Fantastic Four attack him without reason. Magneto is satisfied to see that his plan works. On a long range radar scan, the Fantastic Four discover that Atlantis‘ fleet is preparing for war.
XMHY #20 07 / 2001 Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast and Iceman are carried to the Mole Man’s palace by many subterans. Inside they wake up and try to fight their captor, but the Mole Man predicts and avoids their attacks due to his keen senses. He uses his Valley of Diamonds to blind the mutants, but Iceman creates an icewall keeps the brilliant light away. The mole man then decides to open the floor from which various underground monsters rise to battle the X-Men.
Meanwhile Angel takes Lucy, the female Promise member, to the Blackbird. They depart to Lucy’s former home, which she left thirty years ago. She tries to make up with her son for having abandoned the family. However he is not to happy to see her and can’t accept the fact to have a mutant, younger than himself mother and Lucy and Warren leave again. During the flight back Lucy reveals to have some „persuasive“ power that she used on the Angel to take her to her family instead of searching for his missing teammates, yet she could not bring herself to force her son into accepting her.
In Atlantis Magneto suggests Namor to join forces against humanity. (Scene taken from Fantastic Four #102, re-drawn by Byrne, uses same dialogue)
Charles Xavier still tries to establish telepathic contact with his students as Teri austin interrupts him to alert him to the news on TV. Mr. Fantastic explains that the Fantastic Four were attacked by a magnetic wave originating from Atlantis, that a missile was fired against the undersea kingdom and that now an armada of warships is on the way. Xavier thinks that Magneto might be involved and sends his astral self towards the fleet, where he indeed finds his archenemy on Namor’s flagship. Magneto is surprised to discover the professor alive (the Changeling died in his stead in UXM #42), and the former friends again argue about their different philosophies.
Fantastic Four #103 10 / 1970 The atlantean fleet goes into battle formation against New York, and Namor makes it clear that he will not allow Magneto to order him around. Meanwhile the Fantastic Four alert the Pentagon and the White House of the imminent attack, and they are allowed to try to deal with the threat themselves before the military gets involved. Reed tells Sue to bring little Franklin to Agatha Harkness, and Crystal is ordered to stay at the Baxter Building for communications, while the males board the FantastiCar. As they come within range of the atlantean flagship, Magneto secretly launches a missile against them, but Namor doesn’t want to be the one to strike first and flies after it. The heroes consider this an attack and open fire on the Submariner. With Namor busy, Magneto easily seizes control of the flagship. Somewhat later he becomes aware of the Invisible Girl returning from Whisper Hill, and uses his magnetic powers to disable her small craft. He lets it glide down to the ocean, and takes the unconscious Sue Richards hostage. Namor and the rest of the Fantastic Four are still fighting, till the atlantean prince finally realizes that his ship is gone. Again after much fighting he and the team understand that Magneto plotted them against each other, but it is too late. Magneto calls them on a video screen, presenting both Sue and Lady Dorma as his captives, and demanding that neither Namor nor the Fantastic Four will oppose him.
XMHY #21 08 / 2001 Hank, Jean, Scott and Bobby fight all the Mole Man’s monsters and seem to be winning, but he presses another button and a trap door opens. The mutants fall into an echo chamber that amplifies the slightest sound into physical blows; all four X-Men lie unconscious on the ground.
Xavier‘s astral self disputes with Magneto in Namor’s flagship, right as he discovers the Invisible Woman in her small aircraft. Helplessly Xavier watches as the master of magnetism plucks the craft from midair and takes it’s uncoscious passenger hostage. (Scene taken from Fantastic Four #103, re-drawn by Byrne, uses same dialogue, Xavier is drawn in a spot of the ship that was not seen in the FF issue)
Xavier makes contact with the Angel and Lucy, who attempt to get Havok and Lorna out of the hibernation pods, by acceleration of the chronmeters. They try it with Alex first, but unexpectedly his powers cause an explosion, since he doesn’t wear his energy containing suit. Havok is alright, but the explosion damaged the equipment and the bio-readings of Lorna are dropping fast. Thinking about Magneto, Xavier demands that his students head to New York, while Lucy will work on Lorna, but Alex wants to stay at Lorna’s side, though he leaves after one of Lucy’s „suggestions“.
Angel on the other hand prefers to search for his missing teammates, he enters the ancient tunnel system and suddenly is hit by a cloud of dust. Warren has been turned to stone by Pixie. She and Ikaris transport Warren near the Mole Man’s base, which he alone probably wouldn’t have found. The two Eternals then leave, wanting to avoid detection by the general population.
Havok makes his way to New York, where he is supposed to join the other heroes. In the streets he runs into a patrol of atlantean soldiers and easily defeats them; yet many human bystanders start an anti-mutant hysteria and beat Alex up, thinking him to be in league with the Submariner or Magneto.
Xavier’s astral self floats to Battery Park, where Magneto has set up base. His two hostages are held in glas cylinders, Namor demands their release. (Scene taken from Fantastic Four #104, re-drawn by Byrne, uses same dialogue)
Fantastic Four #104 11 / 1970 The Fantastic Four and the Submariner discuss what to do. Mr. Fantastic thinks it’s best that Namor plays along with Magneto to not endanger the two hostages, while the team will find a way to defeat him. Reluctantly Namor agress and returns to his flagship, now under Magneto’s control. Once there he is ordered to lead his atlantean soldiers as they take over New York. The Human Torch, the Thing and Mr. Fantastic return to their headquarters and meet with Crystal. They call the White House and again are allowed to proceed with their plans despite their failures so far. Magneto sets up base in Battery Park and places the Invisible Girl and Lady Dorma in glas cyclinders; Namor arrives and demands their release, but Magneto says that he will only comply if both he and the Fantastic Four swear alliance to him. He then orders the atlanteans to attack the Baxter Building. The Torch deals with attackers on the roof, the Thing tries to stop the forces that come up in the elevators, and Crystal acts as last defense for Reed to build one of his gizmos. Finally it is finshed and the team flies to Battery Park. Crystal calls up a lightning, and in the distraction Mr. Fantastic streches himself high above Magneto, as the mutant uses his magnetic powers they are redirected throgh Reed’s apparatus and trap Magneto in a cone of energy fueled by his own magnetism. After the two ladies are freed Namor and the atlanteans return to the sea.
XMHY #22 03 / 2001 Beast, Iceman, Cyclops and Marvel Girl wake up in chains, but the Mole Man underestimated Hank‘s strength, who is able to break his bonds. He also frees his teammates, but the Mole Man causes a big cave-in to cover his escape. Cyclops uses his optic beam to hold back the boulders, for at least the others to escape. Nearby the Angel regains consciousness and becoming aware of the situation, he flies in and grabs Scott before he is hit by the avalanche. Completely cut off from the Mole Man the team decides to head back for the surface, on the way Bobby explains that he has finally understood that Xavier did not deliberatly fake his death (UXM #42, 65), though he is not yet ready to fully return to the X-Men yet. Finally they see daylight and find themselves on Monster Island.
The Baxter Building is attacked by atlanteans. The Human Torch, the Thing and Crystal try to provide Reed with enough time to finish a weapon against Magneto, but he is hours away from finishing his task, right as Xavier‘s astral self appears. The professor is able to provide Reed with the needed knowledge and quickly the electro-magnetic converter is finished. The team departs to Battery Park, where after Crystal‘s distraction, Mr. Fantastic stretches himself to a spot over magneto to hold the weapon at the right position. As Magneto uses his powers, he gets trapped into a cone of energy, fueled by his own magnetism. The Invisible Girl and Lady Dorma are freed, the atlanteans return to the sea. (Various scenes taken from Fantastic Four #104, re-drawn by Byrne, uses same dialogue, Xavier is fitted in between)
With the crisis over, Xavier checks on Havok, who has been able to outrun the angry mob. Alex returns to the Promise’s base, where Lucy has been able to release Lorna nd the other people from the stasis tubes. Only messenger himself has died. The Promise members decide to go separate ways, Lucy thinks about using her powers to fight the prejudices against mutants. As she leaves she thinks about how she killed Messenger by „suggesting“ him to die.
