Cul's plans to regain all of the Worthy hammers and attack Asgard continued, with the mutants doing their best to prevent him finding the final three Worthies. X-Force's heist on an auction house in Tokyo seemed it would succeed... until the ravens of Marie-Ange Colbert's visions interfered, resulting in the team deciding to leave the hammer, where it was claimed by the son of the antiques dealer, turning him into Greithoth. Two days later, Daniel Drumm appeared with information on who and what they were facing.

The X-Men also had a lead on a hammer - a local mutant fight club was offering "the power of a god" as the prize for the champion, but their attempt to claim the hammer first ran into trouble, with the appearance of Skadi and D'Spayre in the crowd and the revival of Angrir. As the team was preparing to leave, they were recruited by The Avengers into coming to help guard the final hammer, which was in a vault in the Triskelion but was under attack by Cul, The Dweller in the Dark and their combined forces. Former rivals became allies fighting alongside each other, but the Hulk was drawn by the hammer's call and became Nul, last of the Worthies. They were successful in overpowering and taking the Dweller - still possessing Tandy Bowen - back to the mansion where Amanda Sefton and Jean Grey combined magic and psionics to help Tandy continue to fight the Dweller and keep it trapped in her mind. The next day Thor finally showed up, with a reforged Odinsword, the only weapon which would destroy Cul. Captain America and Iron Man also turned up and plans were made to locate and take down the rogue Asgardians. Cul made locating him simple, however, by enacting the final part of his plan. The Worthies were scattered to major cities across the globe, tasked with causing as much fear in the populations as they could, which would fuel Cul and give him the power to ascend to Asgard. Cul himself was in Norway, on the same island he had been imprisoned for eons, preparing to ascend to Asgard. Mixed teams of Avengers and mutants took on the Worthies, in some cases subduing them but in most only managing to stall them; another team, including Thor battled Cul with the Odinsword. Just when all hope seemed lost, Tandy, tricking Cul into thinking the Dweller was still in control, blasted him with every ounce of power she had, allowing Doug Ramsey to take up the fallen Odinsword and behead Cul. At his death, the various hammers disintegrated into dust, releasing the various hosts from their possessions and leaving SHIELD to pick up the pieces. Tandy herself remained in a coma until Jean and Amanda led a group of her nearest and dearest into her mind to help her lock down the Dweller more permanently. She was paroled to the mansion by SHIELD with a number of conditions to ensure her safety - and to preserve the Dweller's prison.

Meanwhile, strange things were happening at Denver International Airport and a a missing persons case for X-Factor took them to the Church of Humanity chapter in Salem Center. The case ended badly, with their missing girl and her mother both killed, but they did retrieve enough evidence of the chapter's violence to have them arrested and disbanded.

Warren Worthington, being offered a chance to redeem himself with his father offering him a position in Switzerland, decided not only to go, but possibly also proposed to Barbara Morse. Cecilia Reyes, after helping a mutant patient at a New York hospital, decided to leave and follow her vocation there. And with interest from Alani Ryan and Theresa Cassidy, Sooraya Qadir and Angelo discussed the possibly resurrection of X-Corps.
