Synopsis:	NOTE: this issue is part 3 of the Shattershot crossover.
	Mojo's media monopoly is being threatened by a pirate network. He decides to
convince Spiral to catch Arize for him, and broadcast the execution.
	Val simultaneously asks X-Factor to catch Spiral for her (they were both in
Freedom Force, the previous government-sponsored mutant team).
	Arize, in South Dakota, has set up hardware to collect all the broadcasts from
earth to show Mojoworld what freedom is like. He explains that he created the
bipeds on his world and wants to inspire his fellow spineless ones to better
themselves.
	Spiral tracks him, and X-Factor tracks Spiral and captures her after somewhat
restrained resistance. She relates her history: she was once Ricochet Rita, and
fell in love with Longshot (see his limited series). Mojo and Arize reshaped her,
giving her the ability to dance through time and space, and giving her cybernetic
implants, then forcing her to do Mojo's will, dancing backwards through time and
capturing herself for Mojo. She transports Arize to Mojoworld to break the cycle,
mentioning that Mojo will be brought down by Shatterstar (see X-Force) a hundred
years hence.

Synopsis:	Charlie, as a boy, witnesses the shooting deaths of his parents by a
mutant (Random, apparently). Bounced around foster families, he is in Guido's
school when his power first manifests (he is hit by a school bus, see iss. 87).
Charlie lashes out at Guido and gets worse than he gave. After a hospital stay,
he has to use a cane. He turns to the dark side, killing a cat and becoming
generally spooky.
	Alex, Pietro, Rahne, and Jamie work out in X-Factor's Danger Room, which
because of government budget cuts, consists only of Val shooting at them with a
machine gun. They stop to watch Guido and Lorna interviewed on Donahue, defending
mutancy as "normal." Charlie recognizes Guido on TV and summons the demon Cloot
to destroy him. Instead, he is forced to make a deal: he must turn X-Factor to
allegiance with Cloot, and he is transformed into Charon, ferryman of the dead.
	He gets the deceased Chalkers (see issues 77, 83, 89) to help him attack
X-Factor, who have never even heard of the Chalkers but easily defeat them.
(Lorna pushes Vic into Rick so they slice each other apart, and Jamie makes a
dupe inside Dick's stomach, killing him.) Charon decides to just kill Guido, but
Cloot sends him to hell for reneging on their deal before he can try.

Synopsis:	Guido realizes that the government is evaluating the team, including
their personal files.
	Pietro, with his sister Wanda, was first a member of Magneto's Brotherhood of
Evil Mutants, then reformed and joined the Avengers. After a near-fatal encounter
with a Sentinel, he married Crystal, and they had a baby, Luna. The marriage soon
broke down, and Pietro learned that Magneto was his father. He has been
emotionally unstable since.
	Lorna was Iceman's girlfriend, and was kidnapped by Mesmero who brought out
her latent magnetic powers. After a brief tenure with the X-Men, she fell in love
with Alex, and they both went back to college. She was at various times possessed
by Malice, transformed by Zaladane, and controlled by the Shadow King. Whew! Then
Xavier asked her to join X-Factor.
	Guido's power appeared when he was hit by a school bus, permanently and
painfully distending his body. He worked as Lila Cheney's bodyguard before
joining X-Factor.
	Alex and his brother Scott were orphaned and separated. Scott became an X-Man,
while Alex came under control of the Living Pharaoh, whom the X-Men defeated.
Alex joined his brother's team until Krakoa, when he and Lorna went off together.
Proteus and the abduction of Lorna by Malice instigated him to return to the
X-Men, with whom he died in Dallas. He reemerged, amnesiac, as a government
enforcer in Genosha, until the X-teams broke his conditioning.
	Jamie has been splitting into dupes ever since the doctor slapped him on the
behind. After a fight with the Fantastic Four, he was introduced to Xavier and
placed with Moira on Muir Island. One of his dupes was killed by Proteus, and
another joined the Fallen Angels. After the Shadow King incident, he joined
X-Factor.
	Rahne was rescued from a mob and adopted by Moira, who placed her in the New
Mutants, where she witnessed the deaths of Cypher and Warlock and was made into a
mutate in Genosha.
	Val is seen as the one reading these files, and she acts real sinister-like.

	Xavier and Haven discuss Jamie's death, and whether or not Haven is a villain.
She relates her origin in India, a rich girl whose parents were educated,
religiously open-minded philanthropists. He psychic gifts made it impossible for
her to ignore the poverty and suffering around her, and she vowed to help. She
founded a children's hospital named Haven, but went off track when she fell in
love with a man who dumped her. Depressed, she listened to an inner voice which
told her all humans will make the genetic leap to mutancy. She lectured and
gathered a following.

Professor Power emerges from the canister (last seen in Spectacular Spider-man

vision of humanity's future. He knows she is keeping a secret, and he wrests it,
jumbled, from her mind: she is human but carries a mutant fetus, who can never be
