    Uncanny X-Men #334 & X-Men v2 #54
    Juggernaut reaches the Mansion, takes out Gambit & Bishop, then tells Jean that he needs her to get inside his mind to unlock his secrets about Onslaught. Jean's own encounter with him is fading away from her memory. She takes him to a psi-shielded chamber so they can discover the answer of the question: Who is Onslaught?

    Onslaught got the Juggernaut shook yo:

    Xavier summons Scott to a meeting in the War room. Xavier tells Scott that he is disappointed with him on many different levels. Then he tells Scott he needs him to be strong for all of them. When Scott reaches out to touch Xavier he discovers that he has been talking to a holographic projection. Scott tries to find Xavier through the computer only to be told that Xavier is in his study where he has been for the past 48 hours.

    The X-Men search the grounds for Juggernaut, as Jean Grey taps into his psyche. Jean demands he destroy the wall that Onslaught built. Cain destroys the wall and Jean learns who Onslaught really is. Jean commands Cain to run and he does but, sadly, he runs into the arms of Onslaught. Onslaught rips the gem of Cyttorak from the chest of Cain, and then reveals who he truly is… Charles Xavier. <--- I'm sure there is more to it than that, considering Onslaught wears Magneto's colors.

    X-Men: Onslaught- Traitor to the Cause
    So in this issue we find out that Onslaught claims to be created by Professor X's greatest fears and deepest insecurities. Basically it started the day he destroyed Magneto's mind.

    Juggernaut is now trapped in the Cyttorak Gem. Dark Beast joins Onslaught, who already knew he wasn't the real Beast, and X-Man contacts the Avengers to help with the situation.

    X-Men Unlimited #12
    Gomurr the Ancient travels into the Gem of Cyttorak to rescue the Juggernaut, who is being tortured by a demon named Spite and Cyttorak himself. With the combined efforts of Gomurr and Tar, they expel Cain from the Gem, and he is now more powerful than ever.

    He finds it particularly humorous, what is going on with Onslaught and the X-Men.

    1znu1ki.jpg

    Everyone is meeting up at Xavier's mansion to work together to fight Onslaught, which includes the Avengers, X-Force, and Nate Grey. Storm decides to go find Cable, who is off on his own somewhere. Cyclops, Jean, Bobby, Archangel & Psylocke decide to go to Muir Island, where Moria MacTaggart announces they must unveil the secret 'Xavier Protocols'. X-Force watches over Nate Grey, who might be a potential target. The Avengers go off looking for the real Magneto. Lastly, the other warn Fantastic Four of these events. Bishop finally apologizes to Gambit for accusing him of being a traitor, realizing it was Charles all along.

    Meanwhile, Onslaught is chillin in the lair of the Dark Beast, who prepares to gather a group of minions for their cause.

    Avengers #401
    Half of the Avengers, along with Gambit, go to find Magneto who they tracked down with Cerebro. They find him, the mysterious guy who looks like Magneto named Joseph (still unaware if its truly him or not) who has been chilling with Rogue. Quicksilver immediately attacks, and Magneto/Joseph starts taking out Avengers.

They take him back to New York to help in the fight against Onslaught.

    X-Factor #125

During the battle Polaris finds out that Random has been a double agent.

    Meanwhile, Sabretooth & Mystique had been captured by Dark Beast, but he is not able to convince them to join his side, as they feel being a part of X-Factor satisfies their own agendas.

    Fantastic Four #415
    Onslaught is after Franklin Richards, under the disguise of a young boy named Charlie. Some of the Avengers, plus Iceman and Bishop, arrive at the FF HQ to warn them, but it is too late as Onslaught has already infiltrated the building. He destroys them all in battle, and takes Franklin with him which is a whole lot of power for him to have his hands on.

    Apocalypse observes all of this with Uatu, The Watcher:

    Apocalypse out here just chillin with major Galactic characters.

    [Excalibur #100
    London is still out of control due to the unleashing of the demon, people killing each other and buildings all up in flames. Excalibur arrives, and Wisdom chases after Scratch, his former psycho partner. Daytripper arrives at Muir to tell Moira that her step-mother Margali is behind the London madness. They are joined by the X-Men who come to let her know that Charles has gone insane. She shows them the secret Xavier protocols. These are different way to kill the X-Men in case they go insane, including himself.

    At the Hellfire Club Brian Braddock, in his new Captain Britain suit, faces Ms Steed and Mountjoy. Thanks to his suit's improved force-field, Captain Britain survives and stops Mountjoy before he steals another body. Elsewhere, Wisdom and Scratch continue to battle it out, and Scratch almost wins - until Lockheed the dragon comes to Wisdom's rescue. The other Excalibur members attack the Black Air building. After several battles they find Douglock and are joined by the weakened Amanda who has a plan to end the madness. With Kitty's computer skills and Amanda's magic they free Douglock and bind the demon in his prison, before Margali fades away screaming, and Excalibur are reunited, after saving London.

    Onslaught just did major damage. @evoljeanyes Idk how you could say this dude is overrated yo.

    The Avengers, Fantastic Four, as well as Bishop and Iceman, stand atop Four Freedoms Plaza as a witness to Manhattan’s destruction. The teams await Ant Man, Wasp, Gambit, Rogue and Magneto, who is now calling himself Joseph. They all head towards the battle, as hundreds of Sentinels attack New York. A handful of the most intelligent of the group stay behind to prepare offensive weaponry to better take on Onslaught. Suddenly, atop a huge Ebony Citadel, made from the powers of young Franklin Richards, Onslaught blasts the Sentinel’s attackers to the ground. Even the approaching Blackbird is not left unscathed, as the passengers on board plummet to the ground. Below the citadel, Magneto stirs from the rubble. With a look of anger, he tells them that Onslaught has made his first opening statement.

    A couple cool screenshots from this one:

    X-Man #18 & X-Force #57
    Mr. Sinister goes to Egypt and finds Apocalypse's tomb empty.
    Threnody is alone in a Manhattan church, when she is attacked by the Marauders. Although she manages to defeat them, she is helpless as Mister Sinister makes an appearance in person. He then goes to the Mansion and attacks X-Force, in order to confront Nate Grey. Nate recognizes him as his Age of Apocalypse counterpart, who ruined his life in the other world. Sinister explains that Nate’s arrival may have given way to the very thought of Onslaught and given Onslaught the means to access its physical armor when he pulled Xavier from the Astral Plane.

    Domino then hits the mansion self-destruct button, buying them time. Warpath comes back from his vacation, hearing of the Onslaught events, and bring his new girl Risque. It all comes to a head when Nate tries to read Sinister's thoughts, and he creates a backlash. The whole team is KOed and Sinister leaves with Nate.

    Onslaught Saga is heating up! Hope to read most of it tonight.

    Uncanny X-Men #336
    Almost all of the heroes gather in New York to fight the madness that Onslaught has created. Meanwhile, Xavier & Franklin Richards are trapped within the psyche of Onslaught, and therefore he has the power of both of them, which even begins to change his appearance. Cyclops, Invisible Woman, Storm, Cable, Thor, Gambit and Rogue regroups and Thor is able to rip Xavier out. This, however, makes Onslaught more powerful, as he is now free of Xavier. He unleashes a psionic storm that would have killed the heroes had Cable and Sue not used their powers to protect them all. Sue asks Xavier if he can sense if Franklin is alive, but Charles shocks them all when he reveals that his telepathic powers no longer work! Apocalypse & The Watcher still observe from afar.

    Cable #35
    Apocalypse finally steps into the field of play and confronts Cable & Sue Richards with a plan to free Franklin from Onslaught via a trip to the Astral Plane, which Cable has to ability to go to. They obviously don't trust him, but go through with it anyway in order to save her son. Of course, when they arrive Apocalypse betrays them and proceeds to try to kill the boy believing him to be a future threat, but Sue Richards prevents it and Onslaught sends them away. Apocalypse teleports away, pissed off as fuck.

    Avengers #402
    The Avengers team is attacked by Holocaust and Post in order to retrieve some psi-armor that Iron Man built that is a potential threat to Onslaught. It seems as though the Avengers are in a hopeless situation, but through Captain America’s ingenuity and the brute strength of every member, the Avengers lay waste to both of the villains and restore order to New York for the time being.

    The Incredible Hulk #445
    Hulk rendezvous with the Avengers and argues with Cap about attacking Onslaught head on. He manages to convince Falcon, Hawkeye, Vision & Crystal to come with him. Unfortunately, Onslaught notices them on their way and plays out a scenario in all of their minds where they all die except Hulk, who defeats them and could care less about the rest of them. Afterwards, they all head back distrusting Hulk once again.... oops?

    As the Fantastic Four, X-Men & Avengers regroup to plan out an offensive against Onslaught, other characters fight the Sentinels/chaos on the street level (Iron Man, Wolverine, Punisher, Green Goblin, Spider Man, etc).

    X-Man #19
    Sinister, after kidnapping Nate, tries to use his way with words to convince Nate that his side is where he must stay in order to win this war. Of course Nate won't listen, and then he begins to hear a quiet cry in his brain (which is Franklin Richards). Sinister tells his to block it out as it is a trap, but Nate doesn't listen and is suddenly taken by Onslaught. Sinister is left behind to SMH/Facepalm.

    The Conclusion

    Fantastic Four #416
    It starts out with Nathanial Richards warning the team that if they do not flee this fight, they will all die, as he has seen the future. Then, Onslaught manipulates Franklin Richards into sending images, though they are real to the touch, of all of Fantastic Four's enemies to attack them (Annihilus, Blastaar, Dragon Man, Mad Thinker, Malice, Tyros the Terrible and Wizard). They are defeated quite easily with the help of some old friends who show up, as well as some enemies who are allying with the FF. These include Fantastic Force, The Inhumans, Agatha Harkness, Alicia Masters, Namor, Puppet Master, She-Hulk and most notably Dr. Doom!

    X-Men v2 #56
    Rogue and Joseph/Magneto are about to be killed by a Sentinel, if not for Doctor Doom showing up. He's kind of disgusted with Magneto, and he pops mad shit about Onslaught.

    6z963d.jpg

    As the Avengers/X-Men prepare for their final strike, Professor X confronts Onslaught on his own, who now has absorbed the powers of Nate Grey as well.

    Onslaught: Marvel Universe
    Heroes, Mutants & Villains alike gather for the final stand against Onslaught:

    357fr85.jpg

    The heroes fought valiantly, eventually relying upon the ultimate force of the savage Hulk to break through Onslaught’s armor. However, this all proved to be a ruse, as Onslaught’s armor gave way to reveal pure, malevolent psionic energy, which would consume the planet if not for the ultimate sacrifice of many of Earth’s greatest heroes. The Fantastic Four, Avengers, Namor, Doctor Doom, and Bruce Banner threw themselves into the energy, hoping to contain it. They succeeded, at the cost of all their lives. Nate Grey and Franklin Richards were rescued from the monster, and only the X-Men remained (as mutants could not enter the psionic energy) to mourn the dead and to be blamed for the loss of the world’s finest heroes.

    Something similar to this would be GOAT if done for ALL of the Avengers' stories.

    U could burn about 5yrs offa your lifespan reading and then posting scans of their stories.

    Yo! You're kilking the game. Do you have time to do this for other books.

    Hardly enough time to read these lol.
    I figure when I finally catch up to present time I'll read back some classic issues/arcs involving non X-Men, but not every single issue like I am with this. Plus, I'm pretty sure there aren't many great chronological lists of the other teams on the internet.

    Onslaught: Epilogue
    Charles turns himself in to government custody, thinking he could help, but then he is turned over to Bastion where he is labeled prisoner M-13 and beaten. He winds up saving a little mutant girl who was created at this base, but he himself stays in custody.

    ^It was a double length book, but the only important info is that he is now in Bastion's custody, who is the leader of the Operation: Zero Tolerance movement.

    Cable #36
    Cable is on death's door after the battle with Onslaught as his Techno-Virus is spiraling out of control.

    However, just when it looked to be over, he has an outer body experience with his ex-wife and dead son, where he gains some closure and finally accepts their deaths. This gives him the strength to come back and get a hold over his virus like he has all his life.

    I guess we're about to get to the bottom of who Shatterstar really is in the next few X-Force comics, which I'm not too intrigued by, but whatever.

    X-Force #59-61
    So it starts off with Shatterstar telling the group that he believes he is Benjamin Russel from Boston, as well as Shatterstar from another planet. Safe to say he is pretty confused. Unexpectedly, Rictor returns (the guy who shares a bromance with Shatterstar) and rejoins the team. Turns out all of the files on Benjamin Russel are gone so they visit the Weisman Institute where Star believes to have spent time. The place is abandoned and then Gog and M'Gog (two giant dog looking aliens from Star/Longshot's planet) kidnap Star and teleport him away with Cable. Longshot (been out of the X-Men loop for a minute) shows up and saves the rest of the team from a deadly plane crash.

    Cable & Shatterstar are now prisoners of Mojo and with the help of Doctor Strange, Longshot and X-Force are transported to that world where they meet up with Longshot's wife and former X-Men, Dazzler. They invade Mojo's palace and find that Cable & Star are trapped inside a television. Meanwhile in Florida, Risque is confronted by Mimic, Blob and a mystery man who push her to continue as planned.

    Spiral informs them she can help them save Shatterstar’s life, although she refuses to reveal her motives. Spiral then teleports Siryn and Longshot inside the holovid where they pick up Cable and the fallen Shatterstar. She takes them to the Weisman Institute for the Criminally Insane, where Siryn once encountered a comatose patient who seemed to bear a mysterious connection to Shatterstar, as well as being identical in appearance to him. Longshot performs a strange ritual in which he places the dying Shatterstar’s soul into Benjamin’s body, thus saving Shatterstar’s life and somehow making him complete. Spiral says something like "she cares for these two with all her heart" so Idk if that means she's his mother or what? X-Force prepares to depart from Mojoworld, unaware that Gamesmaster, who has also somehow been involved in the mysteries of the Weisman Institute, watches them from afar and laughs.
