Sunspot joined up with fellow mutant survivors Iceman, Kitty Pryde, Bishop, Blink, Colossus, and Warpath and formed a plan to survive; whenever they were discovered by the Sentinels they would send Bishop's consciousness back in time a few days to warn them of the attack and then retreat to another location. While defending Kitty and Bishop he was grabbed by one of the Sentinels, frozen and choked to death.They met up with Charles Xavier, Erik Lehnsherr, Wolverine and Storm in China. While Kitty sent Logan's mind back in time, Sunspot and the other X-Men fought off the Sentinels when they arrived. While Storm and Magneto destroyed most of them, dozens still remained.
