Hope Summers and the X-Men were successful in their defeat against Bastion and his Nimrod Sentinels invasion of Utopia. But the victory was only short lived as Hope's abilities started to change at an exponential rate. With every new mutant born added another mutation to Hope's pallet. Her change began to physically affect the mutants around her. It started with the exaggeration of their power-sets, which swelled their strength, and then caused her to absorb every mutant psyche on the planet into her own, which made her into a single gestalt being that Hank McCoy dubbed the Hub.

But Dr. Nemesis noticed things were out of place with his vision and Box's own abilities which revealed that what they experienced was a simulation of another alternate future timeline produced by Donald Pierce and the Sapien League in order to get the formula ingredients to the Hope Serum, but was tricked by Rao in the end. The fate of this Hope Summers is unknown.[1]
