Synopsis:
Professor Xavier telepathically "overhears" some of his students plotting somebody's death. Since he cannot use his powers to scan the crowd, he asks the X-Men, now allied with Magneto, to find the guilty parties before any harm is done. The X-Men feel uneasy about trusting Magneto, but they proceed as told. Rachel and Kitty discover that Xavier is the target of the assassination attempt and Rachel nearly gets killed by a bomb meant for Xavier. In rage, Rachel drops all her covers and the X-men see her hound scars and outfit for the first time. Magneto manages to prevent Rachel from killing the assassins, as that would prove them right that mutants are indeed murderers. The Beyonder observed the X-men and does not understand why Magneto kept Rachel from using her vast abilities, he decides that to understand humans he must become one of them. Elsewhere Nightcrawler meets with Father Bowen, as the encounter with the Beyonder has shaken his faith in god. In Kenya, Ororo is shot and left for death by Andrea and Andreas von Strucker.
