All-New X-Men #34

The time-displaced X-Men's (along with X-23) visit to the Marvel Ultimate Universe continues as Jean Grey goes looking for help only to come face-to-face with this world's X-Men including herself. Reading each others minds creates immediate confusion for both telepaths but also forges an unusual friendship between the pair understanding the highs and lows of each other's troubled lives. Attempting to return home to Cyclops' compound, Angel and X-23 also discover that they are indeed in the wrong world and, as far as they know, without a way to get back home.

Things aren't any easier for the Beast who has a dinner date with this world's Doctor Doom who is fascinated with the tale of time-and-space-displaced mutants. Just what the super-villain plans to do with such knowledge is yet to be seen. And, in the least interesting of the three storylines, Iceman finishes battling the mole monster on the streets of New York only to run into a couple of police officers and discover mutants are no more beloved in this reality than his own. Worth a look.
