"The X-Men are under attack when Karma goes rogue, psychically assaulting her teammates as she loses her grip on reality, and Wolverine explodes in a ball of fire in Central Park! Infected by nanoworms that control their minds and bodies, the X-Men become puppets of Susan Hatchi, CEO of Hatchi Tech, who intends to demonstrate her power to the world with an assault on the island nation of Madripoor--using the X-Men as her personal army. Will the mutant heroes play their role as Hatchi's pawns, or will they resist her control and face destruction by the nanotechnology inhabiting their bodies? PLUS: When newlyweds Northstar and Kyle take their honeymoon, Kyle learns the hard way marrying an X-Man also means joining his astonishing family-- and there are no vacations for the Astonishing X-Men!" --p.  of cover.
