Arc Summary

With a former Mistra agent appearing on the scene, the Taygetos project is revealed - the breeding and genetic tampering with infant mutants to create the perfect soldiers, an extension of Mistra's mutant militarisation programs. With former team mate John Lense surfacing on the side of Taygetos, Nathan and the X-Men find themselves behind the eight ball at every turn... until they decide to turn the tables on the group and use Nathan as bait.

Heretics: An Elpis trip to Morocco leaves Nathan, Monet and Catseye caught between old enemies who want to protect him and unknown allies who want to annihilate the aforementioned old enemies.

Trivia and Meta


This arc was Nathan's swan song, as he retired from the X-Men shortly after Fiddler's Green ended, and then left the mansion (and was retired as a playable character) in September 2009.
