Synopsis:	NOTE: this is part 4 of the Demon Bear Saga.
	To celebrate Dani's release from the hospital, the girls throw a slumber party
in the attic. This is the first time local kids have ever been allowed into
Xavier's school.
	The girls decide to give Rahne a make-over. When Sam and Roberto return from a
ball game, they are told "no boys allowed." Sam doesn't recognize the beautified
Rahne, so she hits him.
	Warlock speeds toward earth, accidentally bashing Magneto's asteroid base en
route. He crashes like a meteor into a lake on the estate, and Sam and Roberto
retrieve him, not knowing he is sentient. He awakes in the lab and plugs into the
electrical system, shorting it out. He infects a flower with a techno-organic
virus so he can consume its life energy, and mistakes a refrigerator for one of
his own.
	Lockheed and Illyana attack him ineffectively, Warlock transforming and
consuming one of Illyana's demons and then starting the same on her, but she
teleports away.
	Amara, Sam, and Roberto attack Warlock, he consumes a tree and returns to the
mansion, where Dani confronts him with his greatest fear: his father. She and Sam
decide to try to communicate with him, so Sam flies off, wakes Doug, informs him
that they are all mutants and his help is needed.
	Doug explains life on earth to Warlock and learns that his kind duel their
fathers to the death to prove themselves. Rahne gives Warlock some of her
life-force, enabling him to form a plug and feed off the Danger Room's Shi'ar
power source.

a candidate to join the school. He accepts him.
	NOTE: 3 pages of Xavier's journal follow: Sam, Illyana, and Roberto.

to test his concentration. Stevie gives Dani physical therapy and some emotional
therapy, as well.
	Roberto gets them all tickets to Lila's concert, and they save her from
falling speakers. They realize it was attempted murder by an alien, find it, and
ineffectively fight it in the catwalks while Lila keeps singing. She uses a
guitar riff to burst the alien's armor, also hurting Warlock, then closes her act
by teleporting away with the band and Sam. Warlock reactivates her stargate so
the rest can follow, but they wind up in empty space, so Warlock turns himself
into a spacecraft.
	Lila entertains Sam in her own private Dyson sphere, dresses him in leather,
and plans with Carasulla to steal and auction off the earth, while Hovannes plans
to double-cross her.

attack, and Rahne, Dani, and Warlock are captured with Lila and Sam. Charasulla
kills Hovannes, and Amara, Illyana, Doug (!), and Roberto attack and free them.
They set off a booby-trap that will disintegrate the earth, but Doug reads the
instructions and turns it off.
	Lila promises never to try to steal earth again and teleports them all to her
flat in London. Dani calls Xavier to pick them up while Lila gives Sam a farewell
kiss.
