and catches her mid-husk. They both hurt, and Paige goes down, but Ev keeps
himself from feeding on her. M arrives and tells him to synch with her power, to

reassembles, and Emma, who has been telepathically observing, says they need to
solve the problem of M.

Synopsis:	Stan Lee narrates:
	Angelo remembers gang life in the ıhood, while swinging through trees on his
own skin. He finds the Jono wounded (Angelo blew up the car to get away from
X-Cutioner), and they stumble into a circus. He puts Jono underwater for
safekeeping.
	Mr. Thomas is furious at Sean for not protecting Ev. Sean says worse things
would happen if it werenıt for the school, and the Thomases realize they have to
keep Ev there. Jubes tries to talk to him, her new best friend, but heıs still
upset.
	X-Cutioner wants to kill Skin for murdering Angelo, not realizing Skin is
Angelo, who doesnıt feel like explaining and brings down the big top instead.
	Emma talks to M: ³Youıre a young woman with secrets, Monet. Itıs one of the
few things I like about you.² But she has her students to protect, so she invades
her mind. M yields.
	X-Cutioner was Fred Duncanıs partner in the FBI and inherited his mutant
caseload and weapon collection. He has gone vigilante. He finds some of Angeloıs
skin and realizes it matches Angeloıs corpse. Still, he chases him into the wax
museum. Angelo disguises himself as a mummy and realizes itıs getting easier to
use his power. He swings toward X-Cutioner and gets blasted; the momentum blows
him into the house of mirrors. He makes X-Cutioner question himself and then
pulls the trigger on his energy lance. The blast bounces around the mirrors and
puts X-Cutioner down.
	Angelo picks up Jono and wonders how theyıre going to hitchhike to Xavierıs.

	As the team flies a Frost Enterprises jet from St. Louis, Paige writes her
brother Sam, comparing the team to his New Mutants. Theyıre not quite a family,
yet, but getting there.
	Sean notices theyıre flying north to Canada and asks Emma whatıs up. Sheıs
not telling, and he opens the escape hatch and flies away. Ev, without his
seatbelt (long story), goes flying, too, and Paige has to catch him till they can
break M out of her trance. Emma says theyıll sort things out when they get home.
	Sean finds himself on top of a mountain, not sure how he got there. He
realizes Emma played with his mind and took the children.
	At the school, new handyman Chevy helped kill mutant Dennis Hogan (X-Men
Prime) and is hiding out. He regrets it. Artie and Leech play in the biosphere,
while Mondo lurks.
	Angelo is en route to Westchester and steals food at a rest stop on I-84.
Jonoıs ill since the psi-plane went wacky. Angelo straps them both to the
undercarriage of a tractor-trailer: he saw it in a movie once.
	Jubes questions Emma when they land somewhere other than Logan Airport, but
she just plays mind games to goof up their powers. She blasts M with all ambient
psionic energy and has her men take the kids to their new home. She is determined

nearby.

little children. Toad has frogs spying on them and is amazed at the reports.
	Sean has gone to Dept. H for help, ³Welcome to Alpha Flight. Would you like
to be a member?² He finds Sasquatch, who also acts strange but tries to help.
	A tree falls on Emmaıs mansion, but she pays no mind. M brings her into the
psi plane, saying Onslaught is affecting her and Jono, and her mind-control of
the students is preventing them from fighting Toad, who has an ally who can
transform mutants.
	Emma says she took Toad in out of pity after the Hellfire Club rejected him.
He has made himself a kingdom of amphibians, which now breaks apart.
	Sasquatch crashes through the roof, two minutes too late to rescue them. Sean

and orders the kids out of the van, telling Angelo and Ev to park it.
	The 51st Street subway is delayed, so dumped-guy meets late-for-work girl.
Jubes and M have a spat over their relative worth. Armed men in a sedan hit a
courier in the garage; Sean hears it and comes running, while Angelo and Ev
attack. Sean uses his sonics to shield them from the bullets, but they are all
captured by coils that dampen their powers. Itıs Fenris, and theyıre stealing a
mutagenic wave generator, Methuselah-Alpha 001, which may be able to cure
diseases but also causes mutations and kills mutants. They want to set it off in
the city, as terrorists.

her as a budding telepath to respect peopleıs boundaries. Jubes says they should
tell each other everything, and she starts: she and Cynjen were troublemakers in
the mall, till cornered by the police. Her mutant power manifested under the
stress, and she escaped, but nothing would be the same again.
	M freaked out her nanny when she first manifested, but then all Monaco
rejoiced, especially her father. Emplate arrives to debunk this myth, freezing
everyone except M. He wants her to acknowledge the reason heıs trapped in an
alternate dimension; she says he shouldnıt insult their motherıs sacrifice. He
shows her his existence: grabbed by thousands of cold hands, and he wants someone
to take his place.

mother said, you canıt rush things. She tried everything anyway, till she
literally tore out of her own skin. She thanked God for the power.

Synopsis:	Mondo attacks Sean, at the behest of Black Tom, who has evolved into
a tree-like being and gone mad (see Deadpool minis).
	In Buddyıs in L.A., Tores has a tense phone conversation with Emma. Emma
arrives at the school to find it covered with vines. Tom announces himself, and
she finds her powers donıt work on him.
	Jubes flees Mondo and runs into Bastion. He shoots Mondo and puts Jubes to
sleep.
	Tom gleefully attacks the tree house, and the kids, Howard, Beverly, and Tana
Nile run for it. Artie, having seen one mutant massacre already (along with
Leech, X-Factor 10), attacks with a hologram of Sabretooth, but Tom doesnıt
flinch. He wants custody of the kids, but Howard has doused him with gas and now
drops his cigar.
	Tom isnıt down for long, and Man-Thing arrives only to stare at Franklin.
Howard tells the kid to relax, as Man-Thing envelops him, to keep him safe, and
then rescues the rest of them. Tom retreats underground, but Penance follows.
	Gateway shows up, having tried to make amends for his part in the death of
the Hellions (Uncanny X-Men 281), and he knows his time with Generation X is at
an end.
	Tom has most of the team captive in a manner reminiscent of Krakoa
(Giant-Sized X-Men 1), and Sean promises to kill him. Tom blames him for taking
Theresa away and says he has to prove he can be trusted to protect Generation X.
He orders him to kill Emma, and then manipulates her into attack him so he will.
Emma pleads with him to kill her, to save the kids. He refuses, so she takes
control of his mind, sacrificing herself for her students.
	Tom, exulting in destruction, slices Ev in half. Turns out the kids were just
constructs full of worms, and Tom has them captive elsewhere. He has been spying
on them through his Mondo clone. Penance attacks and splits him down the middle,
and heıs gone. Sean still doesnıt know where the kids are.
	Deep beneath the ocean, a jellyfish-like transport rises, no longer under
Tomıs control. The kids surface in the middle of nowhere, near Gordon Bennett.

	Trapped in another world he never made, Howard the Duck is sentenced to

	Flashback: he left earth with Man-Thing, guardian of the nexus of all
realities. Franklin asked him why heıs such a grouch, and he complained about
being dumped on earth. Tana Nile scolded him for talking that way around kids,
then tossed him through a door to another reality. Franklin convinced Man-Thing
to go after him, and Tana Nile got Artie to use his mind like a net to find him.
	Howard is in Nevernevernarniozbia, where Tweedlegreen wants him as a pet and
rescues him from falling. He gets a Kree-like genie from a lamp.
	An empty ship glides through the nexus, captained by the Dark Hunter.

celebrate. A cross-dressing Dr. Strange fairy appears and agrees to take them to
the king. The Red Witch of the Southwest attacks.
	Howardıs genie gives him a DeSoto to get home in, and he is not amused.
Before he can use his wishes, black knights capture him. And so he winds up
before a Doom-like king and a queen like Emma Frost.

speak. They come to a Seuss-like town, go to the diner, and Franklin asks for
food in rhyme. The cadence police soon arrive to arrest them, though, and Tana
Nile hopes the jail can protect them from the Dark Hunter.
	Tana Nile says her race, from Rigel-Z, is ancient and forcibly colonized
inferior planets. She tried to change their attitude but got jailed, so she fled
to find the Avengers and instead found Generation X. Howard comforts her.
	Artie has a nightmare about Franklin and then confronts him, but Man-Thing
protects him. The Dark Hunter arrives, and Tana Nile grabs and tosses him. They
flee the jail, past the unconscious guards. The Dark Hunter nabs Artie, and
