(Uncanny X-Men#146) - When Arcade and a robot of Doctor Doom captured the X-Men in Arcade's Murderworld theme park, many of the former X-Men members soon arrived to save their friends. The former members were soon ambushed by Miss Locke, an ally of Arcade, who sent them through a series of tubes and into Murderworld themselves. Polaris found herself on a carousel and quickly heard the sound of laughter. She turned to see who she thought was Illyana Rasputina, the sister of the X-Man Colossus. Polaris attempted to tell "Illyana" that she was there to help, but the carousel horses soon came to life and began to attack her. Using her mutant magnetic powers, Polaris made quick work of the robotic horses and then tried to introduce herself to "Illyana" as a friend. "Illyana" replied that she knew who Polaris was and that she had a surprise for her. "Illyana"'s face then became very demonic-looking and she brandished a handgun, firing at Polaris. Polaris was forced to use her magnetic powers against "Illyana," revealing the metallic innards of an Illyana Rasputina robot, which exploded into pieces under the magnetic force of Polaris's powers.
