Collects Excalibur #1-5 and Excalibur: The Sword Is Drawn.
Believing the X-Men to be dead, Nightcrawler and Shadowcat vow to keep the dream alive alongside Captain Britain and the metamorphic Meggan -- but the Warwolves have Phoenix on the run and she leads them to London, right into the formation of the X-Men's first foreign franchise! The Warwolves are on our heroes like a cheap suit (or is it the other way around?) and Chris Claremont doesn't waste any time in setting up the labyrinthine plots his fans know him best for! Aliens, intrigue and Arcade! The mystery of the Hellfire Club's Courtney Ross begins here! Guest-starring the Juggernaut!
