that since she is now a Valkyrie, she can tell when people are about to die and
may be able to prevent it.
	In New York City, Roberto sees people trapped under a fallen crane. He
convinces the police to let him lift it, but he slips. She Hulk arrives to finish
the job and gets all the glory. Roberto flies off to Rio to be with his mother.
	The Beyonder comes to the mansion, angry that they did not choose to be
transformed by him (last iss.). They fight, and Illyana, Shan, and the Beyonder
are killed, but the Beyonder rises and renews his attack, killing Amara, Sam,
Warlock, and Rahne. Doug dies trying to give Warlock his lifeglow. Dani berates

	The next morning, the New Mutants are listless. Their nightmares are being
projected to Magneto and Frost and, if not stopped, will put them in a spiritual
coma.
	Frost stops by and offers to take them to the Massachusetts Academy, but
Magneto refuses. He, however, is unable to help; he can't even get Sam to talk to
him about their experience with the Beyonder (last iss. and Secret Wars II:9).
	Dani talks to Brightwind, explaining that the Beyonder had killed them, then
brought them back to toy with them, but let them know that it could happen again.
Thor, as a frog (see Thor 363), encourages her not to give in to despair.

	The Avengers defeat Magneto, and he is forced to attack Warlock to prevent him
from harming them.
	The New Mutants arrive, and Illyana transports away with Magneto. Back at the

Synopsis:	NOTE: Doug and Warlock merge for the first time.
	In Switzerland, a vacationing Betsy is abducted by Spiral and Mojo.
	In Westchester, Doug feels that his new-found mutant powers have alienated him
from his old life and friends.
	Mojo, Spiral, and Betsy appear as a new, popular TV show named Wildways. Brian
realizes that Betsy has been kidnapped, but when he goes to her rescue, he is
subdued by Leong and Nga, whose power makes him obey them like his own parents.
	Roberto, a fan of Wildways, has a mysterious encounter with Mojo and Spiral,
and his later behavior is unusually jaunty. He, Warlock, and Doug attempt to
remove a dead tree from the estate, and he is accidentally killed. Doug blames
himself, but Warlock realizes that it was not really Roberto.
	Mojo gives Betsy new, bionic eyes. By this time he has collected Rahne,
Roberto, Leong, Nga, Butch, Darla, and Alfie, who have all been mesmerized by his
TV program. He transforms them into adults and makes them his Bratpack.
	The New Mutants use Cerebro to track Roberto but are attacked by Butch, whose
power makes them bicker with each other. Roberto, Darla, Leong and Nga finish
capturing all but Warlock and Doug, and then transform them into adults, making
them part of Mojo's Bratpack.
	Doug and Warlock find Brian, regressed to childhood. Magma resists Leong and
Nga, so they regress her to childhood, but Brian helps her escape them.
	Doug and Warlock find Betsy, transformed into a Mojo-like being. They realize
that Mojo is using her psychic power to control the Bratpack, and they must
reprogram the circuitry that controls her. Doug allows Warlock to merge with him,
allowing them to combine their powers, although he risks being infected with the
transmode virus. Betsy attacks Douglock, giving them direct access to her mind,
where they find Spiral threatening to tear it to pieces and thus kill the
mind-linked Bratpack, too. Douglock forms a web to hold her mind together and
free the Bratpack. Betsy's restored mind ejects Spiral. Her body is restored, but
Mojo lets her keep her bionic eyes. Betsy stays in Westchester to learn to use
her power to protect herself in the future.
