Description: X-Factor is perceived by the public to be humans who hunt down mutants for the good of humanity. The X-Terminators are believed by the public to be mutant terrorists who fight for mutant rights. The problem is both of these groups are the same people. X-Factor and the X-Terminators are actually the original X-Men - Cyclops, Angel, Beast, Ice Man, and Jean Grey - and they use this charade to secretly find and help mutants survive in a world where paranoia and fear of the unknown rules. This issue explores how they keep their secret identities safe from the public.
