Plot Summary

When a contact in Prague provided information that old bank accounts belonging to the late Von Strucker were showing signs of activity, X-Force swung into action, employing their network of European and US contacts, plus their investigation skills to establish that the money was going to a small plane charter company owned by a man called Oomes. Oomes was known for his discretion regarding certain types of cargo, and his previous clients had included the mutant smuggling ring broken up by X-Force the previous year. When their surveillance provided information of a shipment coming from China to Germany in several containers rigged up with life-support, X-Force made their move, convinced it was another mutant smuggling ring.

The airport hanger, however, proved to be a trap - as well as Chinese and local mercenaries, another foe awaited them. Friend of Von Strucker, Swarm had set a trap for the Nazi's killers, using the accounts as they were sure to be monitored. Revealing himself, he and his men came close to defeating the group in the ensuing panic and chaos. Wanda was critically stung, resuscitated by Doug and Amanda whilst Illyana went for medical aid. Wanda's out of control powers added to the mess, and Remy and Mark combined their powers to force the bee swarm back whilst Marie-Ange sheltered the rest of the team behind one of her walls. Sofia's winds forced Swarm to retreat, but there had been too much damage taken and the group was forced to flee themselves.
