Joe Pruett comic
Setting his grand plan for godhood into motion, Apocalypse dispatches his agents to capture the world's most powerful mutants, the fabled Twelve: Professor X, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Iceman, Sunfire, Polaris, Cable, Bishop, Mikhail Rasputin, the Living Monolith and Magneto. Having himself planted the seeds of the Twelve legend, Apocalypse hopes to siphon their power, granting him omnipotency. Desperate to stave off his ascension, the X-Men must strike a temporary truce with Magneto to battle the warlord's forces as the Twelve are assembled -- and one longtime member seemingly sacrifices his own life to end the threat of Apocalypse once and for all! Collecting Uncanny X-Men 376-377, Cable 73-76, X-Men 96-97 and Wolverine 145-147.
When heroes die they are welcomed to the enchanted island of Avalon, a land of unimaginable beauty, untouched by crime, unsoiled by bad weather, even immune to death. Only one hero has ever been born here. Her name is Megan, daughter of Arthur. Consumed by her father's wanderlust, Megan travels through the mystical mists surrounding the island in search of her missing father and her own self worth.
