Inside an undisclosed S.H.I.E.L.D. interrogation bunker, Agent Hill has a surprise visitor who is forthcoming with some sensitive information concerning Cyclops' now renegade band of X-men. Allegedly, Cyclops no longer has full control of his optic blasts.
The day before, in San Diego, Fabio Medina errupts as an uncontrollable new mutant and is quickly apprehended by prejudiced law enforcement when suddenly the X-men appear to offer Fabio help. Seemingly out of nowhere a group of Sentinels attack and are soon defeated.
Back at the bunker, the myserious visitor elaborates how Cyclops is an arrogant yet broken man, a murdering monster. The visitor reveals himself to be Magneto, resentful over the death of Charles Xavier and the weakening of his magnetic powers.
