Synopsis:	A transmode-virus owl flies above West-
chester, and a trio of cloaked Psi-Cops follow 
him. He lands in a cemetery and reverts to 
human form: he is Warlock, visiting the grave 
of Douglas Ramsey (New Mutants 64). War-
lock, an alien, fled ritual combat with his fa-
ther, joined the New Mutants, and connected 
with Doug, infecting him with the virus. Both 
he and Doug were killed (New Mutants 18, 
21, Ann. 2, 60, 95), but the Phalanx brought 
him back as a weapon, and he became 
Douglock, with part of Doug in him (Excali-
bur 76ff). Red Skull took control of him for a 
while, which restored his memory (X-Men II: 
1999 Ann.).
	He waits for Doug's parents to leave, then ex-
tends himself down into Doug's coffin. He 
finds no trace of the transmode virus, and 
when he reemerges, the Psi-Cops attack with 
telekinesis, but he just morphs into monstrous 
shapes and beats them off.
	He flies to Project Mainspring, which is ex-
perimenting with Phalanx matter: since he 
first brought the transmode virus to earth, he 
wants to destroy all of it. A Gatekeeper robot 
squashes him, and he feigns having been de-
stroyed, then gets to the labs and frees a cap-
tive girl and her monkey, Hope and Chi-Chee. 
Psi-Cops break in and attack, trying to destroy 
all Phalanx, and Gatekeepers counter-attack. 
	Warlock realizes Chi-Chee has the virus and 
Hope is a carrier, like Typhoid Mary. She tries 
to avoid touching a Psi-Cop but transmodes 
him. Warlock considers letting her get de-
stroyed, but then saves her.
	In space, Mainspring recognizes Warlock, 
and he wants Hope back.

Synopsis:	Hope explains she is from Cuba and was va-
cationing in Switzerland when the Phalanx 
took over (X-Force 38). Her parents were 
transmoded, but she was immune, so they 
used her as a lab rat. Now, everything she 
touches gets transmoded. Warlock explains 
that to his people (the Technarchy), the Pha-
lanx are food by-product. If Phalanx spreads 
it forms a tower to mark the planet for de-
struction.
	Gatekeepers attack, and they flee through the 
streets of New York. Warlock camouflages 
himself as a cab, and they get away. Psi-Cops 
deliberate: they exploded the Mainspring lab, 
but they still want to get Warlock and Hope, 
who meanwhile have hidden in the 
Metropolitan Museum, Warlock 
impersonating abstract sculpture.  A 
Gatekeeper finds them and attacks, and Stark, 
who happened to be in the museum, dons his 
armor and comes to their aid; together he and 
Warlock rescue Hope, whom Warlock rushes 
away before she can infect him. He's 
exhausted, so she gives him some of her 
energy, then a damaged Gatekeeper finds her: 
they can sense when she transmodes 
something. Warlock blasts it, and then Psi-
Cops surround them.

Synopsis:	Mainspring is angry because he can't catch 
Warlock and Hope. They are in the Psi-Cops' 
headquarters, battling them and losing. War-
lock realizes they have various psi-powers 
and they're policing the transmode virus, to 
prevent a recurrence of the Phalanx. Hope is 
able to transmode inanimate objects, and 
Mainspring locates her and attacks. Psimon 
decides to team up with Warlock and Hope 
and battles his sister Psiren, who wants to 
eliminate them. She realizes they're not vil-
lains, but they're too dangerous to live.
	Psimon escapes with Warlock and Hope, 
chased by Gatekeepers, and the Psi-Cops tele-
port to safety. Chi-Chee falls and is captured 
by Mainspring. Psimon planned it that way: 
he realizes Hope is bonded to the monkey.

Synopsis:	Psimon uses his TK to win money gambling in 
the street (3 cups with pea). Hope accidentally 
transmodes her hot dog, so Warlock trans-
forms into a blimp to get away before Main-
spring finds them.
	They hole up in an abandoned building in 
Harlem, and Psimon helps Hope calm her 
mind so she can eat, at least foods with lots of 
chemical additives. Mainspring has Chi-Chee 
tortured, and Hope feels it through their bond. 
She wants to go to his rescue, but Warlock re-
alizes that's what Mainspring wants. Psimon 
helps her control her panic, and Warlock is 
jealous of him.
	Moloids bring the building underground. 
Mole Man asks for help but is interrupted by 
giant mutated monsters. Psimon is trapped by 
a lichen, so Hope concentrates, using her 
power to transmode it without hurting Psi-
mon, who then uses the Voice to order the 
Moloids to dig under the monsters and trap 
them far below.
	Mole Man explains that pollution created the 
monsters and weakened his Moloids, which is 
why he stole a sewage treatment plant (Galac-
tus the Devourer 1). Hope transmodes some 
lichen, then suggests he dig for gold and pay 
Tony Stark to repair the plant. 
	On the surface, Warlock, Hope, and Psimon 
take shelter under a bridge, eat apples, and 
form a team. 
	Mainspring realizes he can transform Chi-
Chee and control the transmode virus without 
Hope.

Synopsis:	Mainspring tries to learn how to control
Chi-
Chee.
	Psimon helps Hope learn to control her 
power, while Warlock is jealous and yells at 
her for making more transmode virus. They 
are in a school, closed for Thanksgiving.  
 	Hope realizes Chi-Chee is on a satellite, so 
they go to Tony Stark to help locate it, but he 
isn't home, so they go to a computer expo. 
Kitty Pryde and Peter Parker are both there; 
Parker's friend Dave designed an astro-
computer. 
	Psycho-Man attacks with Fear; Hope's power 
has caused tremors in the Microverse. Psimon 
creates a barrier to protect Hope before her 
power goes out of control. Spider-Man shoots 
his web to punch the Hate button on Psycho-
Man's box, which helps everyone attack him, 
so he shrinks them all down to his ship, where 
his equipment causes fearful hallucinations. 
Hope panics and starts transmoding things, so 
Psycho-Man switches to Doubt, but that just 
makes it worse, so he sends them back to the 
normal universe before he loses his whole 
ship.
	Kitty greets Warlock, but they are interrupted 
by winged Gatekeeper robots.

Synopsis:	The assorted heroes beat off the attack, but
the 
crowd blames them for trashing the conven-
tion center. Spider-Man goes to retrieve his 
camera, while Warlock cleans up the excess 
transmoded material. 
	Mainspring has a robot retrieve the head of 
Bastion from the New Mexico desert (Aston-
ishing X-Men 2). Bastion blasts off the robot's 
head with his eyes, puts his head on the ro-
bot's body, and heads for Manhattan.
	Kitty phases them down to the Morlock Alley, 
where Bastion attacks them. Psimon erects a 
force field that disrupts Bastion's own, then 
Kitty phases through him, Warlock cuts 
through him, and Hope transmodes his robot 
body (the process is called trans-mech on in-
animate objects) and leaves just the head. 
Kitty phases her hand through it, then phases 
it underground.
	Warlock decides they should go to Muir Is-
land to get help locating Mainspring, who 
meanwhile has retrieved Bastion's head again.

Synopsis:	Rahne effusively greets Warlock, as
Douglock, 
and Hope is jealous. Warlock goes to interface 
with the computer, while Moira runs tests on 
Psimon and Hope. Hope peevishly transmode 
the Cerebro unit and calls herself a monster. 
Moira tells her she should be able to trans-
form things in other ways, and after some ef-
fort she restores a glass that she had trans-
moded.
	Mainspring has realized that transmoded ro-
bots need an outside energy source and bio-
logical control. Bastion's head works nicely, 
especially once Mainspring deletes Bastion's 
and Nimrod's programming, leaving only 
Master Mold. He places the head on a robot 
body and names him Template.
	Warlock locates Mainspring's satellite and 
tries to hack into its systems just as Template 
interfaces with them; he infests Muir's main-
frame and reshapes it to his form. Hope has 
Warlock disconnect it from the generator, and 
it collapses. Warlock transforms into a rocket 
to take them all to the satellite. Mainspring 
has left the door open.
	In space, a planet had accepted the transmode 
virus from the Pure Phalanx, wanting the en-
hanced perceptions and abilities, but now a 
tower has formed. Magus (New Mutants 50) 
arrives and devours the infected planet.

Synopsis:	Magus towers above Manhattan; Warlock 
punches through his body but gets entangled 
and has to cut himself loose. Magus says he's 
tainted and no longer his son. Psiren brings 
her Psi-Cops and berates her brother for al-
lowing this battle to happen. Warlock lets his 
father catch him, then transforms into a giant 
snake and bites his hand off, then realizes 
Magus has infected him with a variant of the 
virus Doug Ramsey and he used to devolve 
Magus to infancy (New Mutants 50). He 
shrinks, and the Psi-Cops catch him and tele-
port everyone away, to Egypt. Magus finds 
them, so Hope has Psiren port them to a vol-

unison; Warlock, with Hope wrapped inside 
him, jumps into Magus's mouth. Hope trans-

through human eyes. He starts to see himself 
as an abomination, the Psi-Cops attack again,

returns carrying Hope; she had given him one 
of Magus's cells to stop his devolution. Psimon 
chooses not to return to the Psi-Cops; he, 
Warlock, Hope, and Rahne are left on the 
tropical island and decide to go swimming.
