What If? Astonishing X-Men" - When Joss Whedon & John Cassaday started their seminal run, the promos hinted that a dead character was going to return. Most zeroed in on The Phoenix rather than Colossus. So the first story asks, what if it Jean Grey were resurrected by Ord instead of Colossus? All the events that were supposed to follow are touched upon, especially the one manipulating everything.
The second story concentrates on the pivotal moment when Wolverine and the X-Men successfully destroy the Command Core of the Danger Room, severing its comm-link and preventing Danger from using the Blackbird against them. When this happens, her signal is broadcast and intercepted by Ultron during his altercation with the Runaways. Ultron abandons his plans to follow a new one: make Danger his bride - and no X-Man will stand in his way.
