Synopsis (contains spoilers):
#Cyclops and #Beast feel increasingly uncomfortable with the guarding #Sentinels stationed at the Institute. Beast also wonders where all the energy from the de-powered mutants ended up after Wanda caused #MDay. Within an orbiting rock mass, #Vulcan awakens in a fiery blast of energy. He boards an abandoned space-shuttle and is disturbed to find that he has woken up in the 21st century. Back at the mansion, #EmmaFrost uses #Cerebra to try and locate the missing #ProfessorXavier. Suddenly, Emma picks up an omega-level mutant signature and a NASA space shuttle burning through Earth's atmosphere. Cyclops, #MarvelGirl, and Wolverine pilot the #XJet towards the shuttle crash-site in upstate New York. Meanwhile, #Shadowcat and #Nightcrawler have their worst fears presented to them through mysterious apparitions. The other #XMen are surprised to see the space-shuttle embedded in a fist-shaped earth formation. Marvel Girl then picks up the faint presence of #JeanGrey and follows her ghostly image into a dark cave. Wolverine and Cyclops run in after her, only to find Rachel unconscious in Vulcan's grip. He makes short work of the the two, by blasting them into submission. Then after informing Cyclops that he is formally acquainted with him, Vulcan drags Scott and Rachel out of the cave. On #MuirIsland, #Banshee is startled by a vision of the deceased #DrMacTaggart standing outside her office window. He follows her to a private shack and finds a computer file revealing Moira's surprising hatred towards Charles Xavier. Wolverine wakes to find himself in the wreckage of the crash site, surrounded by government troops and Sentinels.
Contains the story "Petra".
Synopsis (contains spoilers):
#Petra's family were killed in a rockslide on her 13th birthday. Unable to explain how she miraculously evaded the jagged boulders, she was placed into the custody of Child Protective Services. Petra's foster parents were negligent, and the husband was constantly inappropriate with her. When he tried to molest Petra, his feet sunk into the ground as if it was swallowing him up. From that moment on she knew she was a mutant, (and was possibly responsible for her family's death.) Petra became a runaway; living on the streets and molding a fort out of rocks in Central Park. She learnt how to make diamonds out of hard coal, and this made her life a little easier… until something went wrong. The last pawn-broker she went to called the police. Petra runs to her home in the rocks, but the police quickly apprehend the resistant mutant. Petra wakes up much later in a holding pen, where a kind lady escorts her to get showered and dressed. She informs Petra that someone has made a deal with the court and that she will be released into their custody. When the woman hints at her being a mutant, Petra is afraid to be found out and is cautious towards someone wanting to help "kids like her".
