Synopsis for "X-Tinction Agenda part 9: Capital Punishment"
Rictor and Wolfsbane find Hodge, and Rictor radios Cable for help. Rahne transforms into a giant wolf and attacks, but Hodge swats her aside. Hodge detects Cable and Storm crawling through an overhead duct and impales Cable with his tail. While Storm fights him, Cable radios Cyclops who sends Archangel to help. Scott and Wolverine argue over whether Marvel Girl should engage Hodge, but she tells them she will make her own choices. Hodge overpowers Storm just as Archangel arrives and then immobilizes him. Elsewhere, Beast gets some mutates to help carry Iceman and the wounded X-Men to safety. Havok saves Archangel from Hodge just before Scott, Jean, and Logan arrive and attack. Hodge knocks out Jean and impales Wolverine with his tail. Beast and the mutates meet up with Boom-Boom, Cannonball, Jubilee, and Sunspot. On their way out of the citadel, they encounter Chief Magistrate Anderson who has arrested the Genoshan President. Hodge flees for the citadel roof. Cyclops tells Logan to get Jean to safety then goes after Hodge with Havok. Together, the two brothers unleash the full brunt of their powers on Hodge, blowing up the top floors of the building as the others watch from the street below. Scott and Alex destroy Hodge’s cybernetic body, leaving only his head. Cyclops blasts it off the roof, but Hodge projects a tentacle from his mouth, wraps it around Havok’s throat, and pulls him over the edge. Scott grabs Alex but cannot hold on so Jean telekinetically pulls Hodge away and lowers them to the ground. Hodge’s head lands in front of Wolfsbane, and she rips it apart with her bare hands. She then has Rictor use his powers to destroy the citadel, burying Hodge in the rubble. After Anderson publicly announces the president’s arrest, Havok and Wolfsbane decide to stay in Genosha and ensure the mutate population is freed from slavery. Days later in Salem Center, X-Factor, the X-Men, and the New Mutants gather for Warlock’s funeral. Boom-Boom eulogizes him and pours out his ashes on his best friend Cypher’s grave.
