The Rundown: Knull is on the brink of triumph but even the god of the void has something he fears.
Knull has the heroes trapped and has the one thing he wants, young Dylan. The god of the void decides to tempt the boy into his service but a voice in Dylan’s head tells him to hang on because she has a plan. A voice that Dylan will rely on when the time comes to attack Knull. As Knull draws closer, the voice reveals itself as Jean Gray and the next phase of the attack begins with Dylan taking control.
As Knull finds himself weakened, the heroes manage to escape and Jean coordinates their attacks while probing Knull’s mind for a potential weakness. Finding nothing but darkness within the creature, Jean will discover something that might change the tide of the battle. Something that the god of the void fears. Something that is waiting to pierce the void and find someone worthy of wielding its power.
