Jean is leaving the school to attend Metro College. Elsewhere, the Locust demonstrates his ability to make gigantic insects! Alerted by a radio report, the X-Men rush to investigate these 'mutant' insects. The Locust abandons the scene unobserved, and the X-Men tangle with the locusts he created. They capture one to bring back with them to the mansion. At Metro College, Professor August Hopper comes off as a kook at a college eatery. Returning to his lab, we learn that he is the Locust, having perfected a device capable of growing insects to enormous size. At the mansion, the X-Men learn that the giant insects are not mutants, but their size is artificially induced - they set off to locate the person responsible. They battle the Locust to a standstill at yet another cornfield, and both leave as the national guard arrives to deal with the giant insects. They spot the locust's RV, and Professor X in disguise tries to reason with him. The Locust takes off, and runs into the X-Men yet again, where battle is joined. Ultimately undone by his own insects, and the Locust is convinced of the error of his ways.
