After suffering a series of threats and many difficulties to protect the Multiverse, the members of the super team the Exiles would eventually become the elite team that would serve the "Illuminati Society:" a multiversal organization that would aim to ensure that the Multiverse works with the precision of a Swiss watch, and would be controlled by alternative versions of: Tony Stark, Charles Xavier, Stephen Strange, Reed Richards, Blackagar Boltagon of the Inhumans, Steven Rogers of the Avengers, Doc Green / Bruce Banner, Namor of Atlantis, T'Challa of Wakanda, Ikaris of the Eternals, Scott Summers of Utopia, James Howlett of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, Henry Pym, the Scientist Supreme, Thor Odinson of New Asgard, Hercules, Lord of Olympus, and Captain Marvel / Carol Danvers of the Constellation of Titan.

The first mission of the New Exiles would be to defeat the archvillain Apocalypse / En Sabah Nur, who became as powerful as the Celestials in one of the realities of the multiverse, and began jumping from one reality to another to promote his ideal of the survival of the strongest on a cosmic scale, supported by his five Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Eric Lehnsherr / Magneto - War, Raze Darkholme / Mystiq - Hunger, Ororo Munroe / Storm - Pestilence, Cassandra Nova Xavier / Professor X - Death, and Gabriel Summers / Vulcan - Conquest. To overcome this threat, the Illuminati Society selected a group of key mutants from different realities in the Multiverse:

Thunderbird / John Proudstar (Earth-1900)

Beast / Henry McCoy (Earth-12978)

Nocturne / Talia Josephine "T.J." Darkhölme (Earth-29106)

Mimic / Calvin Rankin (Earth-929)

Morph / Kevin Sidney (Earth-1396)

Sunfire / Leyu Yoshida (Earth-13962)

Grizzly / Theodore Winchester (Earth-8006)

Psystorm / Ororo Munroe (Earth-162952)

Doctor Magik / Illyana Nikolievna Rasputina (Earth-90020)

Blink / Clarisse Ferguson (Earth-1095)

The board is armed, the pieces are positioned, and only time will be able to determine the fate of the Exiles in this game of cosmic chess.
