In London, England, a troll kidnaps a young mutant named Thomas, who has the power to change the elements and therefore to turn objects into gold. On Ship, the New Mutants hold a training session. Mirage is feeling unwell and Boom-Boom has developed a romantic interest in Cannonball. They all are enjoying a much-needed rest when the call comes in about Thomas' kidnapping. The X-Factor team, with baby Nathan, flies to England to search for the missing teenager. Following a trail of gold objects, they are led to a hidden door under a bridge. Inside, they find a cavern full of household objects that have been turned into gold. The team is confronted by the Troll Associates, whose size and strength allow them to quickly capture X-Factor and bind them in golden chains. The trolls plan to use Thomas to turn everything into gold and ruin England's economy through inflation. During the battle with the trolls, Jean notices Nathan has gone missing.
