Story continued from X-Factor #23...
Following their battle against the Right, X-Factor finds themselves teleported aboard Apocalypse's ship. Although they don't initially know where they are, Caliban detects the presence of Apocalypse's Horsemen, giving them a pretty good idea. Jean puts a telekinetic forcefield around them while they regroup. An image of Apocalypse appears before them and tells them that they are aboard his ship, high above Manhattan, cloak from human eyes. Apocalypse tells them that after his last encounter with them he developed an interest in them and began researching them. He tells them that while he learned of Charles Xavier's goal of making peace between humans and mutants, they are against his quest of survival of the fittest.
When X-Factor attempts to attack him, Apocalypse uses his powers to keep them at bay and show them things from his historical standpoint by showing them images on the screen behind him. He tells them that over the centuries he has had many names. In ancient Egypt, he was worshiped as the god Set, in Persia he was known as Sauru prince of demons, that the Aztecs called him Huitzilopochtli, in India he was known as Kali-Ma, and now in the modern era he is known as Apocalypse and he has come to finally come to see the final battle between humans and mutants. He points out the progress to his goals X-Factor has unintentionally made on that regard by posing as mutant hunters. Apocalypse understand X-Factor's personal history, and tells them that it is their desire to unite humans and mutants that has led to so much personal tragedy of late. He offers them a place to join him in the coming war between humans and mutants. As Cyclops, Iceman, Beast and Marvel Girl rebuke Apocalypse's offer, Caliban sits back and listens to what the ancient mutant has to say.
