Uncanny X-Men #20

After the latest Sentinel attack on his team, Cyclops pays Maria Hill and S.H.I.E.L.D. a visit to find out if they are directly responsible. With the help of the Cuckoos and Magik, the X-Men perform a telepathic attack on Hill aboard the Helicarrier with no one else the wiser.

Although Cyclops doesn't get the answers he seeks, he does have another avenue to explore as whoever planted the last fake new mutant sighting obviously not only knows about the existence of Cerebro but how to effect it. As the issue comes to a close Cyclops heads to the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning to confront one of the few on the planet capable of turning Charles Xavier's invention against his former students - Hank McCoy.

With Cyclops basically declaring war on S.H.I.E.L.D. and antaganozing the other branch of X-Men he makes no friends here. Keeping the true identity of those causing the attacks under wraps, it's unclear whether Mystique is directly involved or just using the situation to her own advantage. Worth a look.
