Known as the Shadow to most, Evelyne Bissette is one of the most powerful mutants alive. She is gifted with the strange and frightening ability to control shadows--the darkness that consumes everything, harbors ghosts, and is the creation of Hell.
After an incident in the War Against Magneto, which Evelyne barely escaped, she found peace and safety in the woods, far away from all battling and danger.
But that serenity is disrupted when, after a reunion with the supposed-dead Charles Xavier and the rest of the New X-Men, Evelyne finds herself a prisoner of the one organization she fears most-S.H.I.E.L.D. Then the New X-Men's empty jet crashes into S.H.I.E.L.D.'s hellicarrier, carrying a dirty memory stick that will change her life.
On it is a video of a fiery man who calls himself the Inferno-an extraterrestrial force who has captured the New X-Men and plans on ridding the Earth of all mutants and superheroes. He will stop at nothing to achieve his goal, even if it means purging the Earth of life itself and starting anew.
Evelyne is forced to join forces with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s new Initiative to save the entire mutant species, and those who she loves most.
But this is one fight that humanity and mutants alike may not win.
