Weapon X: The Draft

Synopsis:
Screams ring throughout a home. Parents frantically rush to their children only to learn that siblings are exchanging horror stories of government controlled monsters. As the parents try to console the children the members of Weapon X break into the home. The family are mutants themselves and Weapon X has plans for them. They family unsuccessfully tries to thwart their captors but to no avail. Eventually they all succumb and are boarded onto a jet with several other mutants. Aboard, the children, Billy and Wendy Taylor, befriend a blue skinned mutant named Maggott who has two giant slugs as part of his mutant powers. The jet arrives at some sort of concentration camp guarded by dozens of Boxbots. Some mutants try to fight their captors only to discover that they are powerless while they are beaten up without mercy. Cecilia Reyes, another detainee of the camp, explains that Weapon X is using the power canceling mutant Leech to negate all their powers. Next the new arrivals are interrogated, and those who donít cooperate have their minds read by a telepath. Afterwards the mutants are divided into two groups. The ones that have green M's may somehow prove useful to the agency. However, the mutants with red M's are sentenced to die. Billy witnesses the apparent death of Maggott and other red M'd mutants and tells his father. The next day the Director holds an assembly. When Billyís father confronts the Director about what happened to the red M'd mutants, he is led away and never seen again. In the following weeks, the mutants have to endure sessions in which the program attempts to pluck whatever useful powers they can find. There is only tow options, join the program and become another agent of Weapon X, or slowly die. Some mutants accept the offer, while Billyís mother, exhausted and on the brink of dying from the sessions, makes an arrangement with Dr. Windsor, who secretly helps some mutants escape. Windsor remains true to his word an leads Billy and Wendy, who has adopted one of Maggotís slugs, to freedom.
