Synopsis (contains spoilers):
#Wolverine is the prisoner of an air force encampment, after he was found in the wreckage of a NASA space-shuttle crash. #EmmaFrost creatively "persuades" the racist commander-in-charge to release him into the #XMen's custody. Meanwhile, in an unknown location, #MarvelGirl and #Cyclops are restrained to opposing walls. Rachel is recovering from damage done to her nervous system, while Cyclops is surprisingly able to see without his visor. At the #XavierInstitute, the X-Men work on getting #Cerebra to operate again but #Havok looses his temper. He is ordered out of Cerebra's chamber and irritably walks the subbasement halls. Alex is startled by the projection of #IceMan and #Polaris, sneaking a kiss and gossiping about him. Still bound by twisted metal, Marvel Girl picks up residual psychic images from her location. She tells Cyclops that #ProfessorXavier once occupied the place they are now held captive in. This is confirmed by #Vulcan, who adds that Scott himself has been in the facility. Thirty thousand feet over Nova Scotia, #Banshee flies towards Westchester County airport to deliver an important tape concerning the Professor. #Nightcrawler and Wolverine take a jeep to pick him up, but Vulcan taps Banshee's communiqué with Kurt from; his position in the #Blackbird. As Banshee's plane gets closer to the airport, the passengers notice the #XJet flying dangerously close to their plane. Banshee exits through the airlock and lets out "one last scream" in an attempt to repel the jet. However his power isn't strong enough, and the jet collides with Banshee in a horrific explosion.
Contains the story "Darwin".
#ArmandoMunoz had a cruel mother who blamed him for his father leaving them. He was born with unusual features and when he was only 8, his IQ tested off the charts. Armando was offered an education at many prestigious boarding schools, but his mother enrolled him in #BiltmoreAcademy; where he spent most of the next nine years. Armando was praised by teachers and tormented by the other students. It was this bullying that brought about his mutation. When Armando's head was submerged in a toilet bowl, he pulled himself from the water and subconsciously turned his hands rock-hard; exacting his revenge on his bullies. Armando ignored the incident but when his mother set the house ablaze, he picked her up from the ground and walked through the fire and smoke with ease. Word got around, and after extensive testing, the scientists at Biltmore deduced that "#Darwin, the #EvolvingBoy" was a mutant, in a constant state of evolution. His mother disowns him, and this drives Darwin to jump off the roof of his school. To Darwin's surprise; his body grows lighter, his bones grow soft and he gently lands on the pavement. Later that day, a woman who is interested in helping "kids like him", arrives at the Academy to take him away.
