"You insects! You vermin! There is no place in this world for mutants! Super-soldiers! HEROES!"
Garrison received an emergency call from Phil Coulson, asking for help from the X-Men to retrieve a captured Captain America. According to Coulson, Captain America and Deathlok, supported by his SHIELD team were investigating an A.I.M base when they were ambushed. Captain America was captured and Deathlok injured while SHIELD fought their way out. The rest of the Avengers were hours away and Coulson feared they would escape, taking Captain America with them if they didn't respond quickly.
Garrison formed a response team out of the immediate available X-Men and took the Blackbird to a spot near the A.I.M. base where Coulson met them for a more complete briefing. The X-Men decided to split into two teams - Marvel Girl, Spectrum and Daredevil to go and locate Captain America with Agent Simmons on comms, while Dominion, Psylocke and Shadowcat went to shut down the security systems. Despite being under heavy fire, they managed to take control of the base's security systems and rescue Captain America from a stasis pod.
Both teams retreated, fighting off waves of AIM guards and robots, and rendezvoused with the rest of the SHIELD team at he hanger. Before they could escape, MODOK attacked, cutting off their retreat and assaulting them with his many weapon systems. The team worked to disable numerous weapons before finally making a gap in MODOK’s personal shielding to allow the telepaths to attack his mind. Finding the situation now untenable, MODOK made his escaped and the X-Men left ahead of the incoming SHIELD personnel coming to secure the base.
