Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Apparently, Professor X has finally convinced his longtime adversary (and former friend) Magneto to give us his battle for mutant supremacy over mankind. In hopes of finding a safe harbor where mutants can live free of human oppression, Magneto suggests transporting all mutants -- including the X-Men -- to Asteroid M. But the governments of the world, convinced that Magneto is mounting an all-out attack, conspire to destroy the orbiting asteroid. Three of the X-Men journey to Asteroid M to find out if Magneto is sincere, only to be accused of the magnetic mutant's assassination. "Sanctuary" was X-Men's second consecutive multipart adventure of the 1995-96 season.
