Synopsis:
The X-Men, especially Kitty Pryde, are shocked to hear that Logan used his claws on Rachel when she was about to kill Selene. He explains that he could not let her become a murderer and the X-Men follow his reasoning though are not happy with his decision. However they need to find Rachel before they can do anything else in the matter. Meanwhile the badly injured Rachel has made her way to Central Park. She barely survived being stabbed in the heart because her telekinesis closed the wounds and kept her heart beating. Rachel thinks that she might have been wrong, however when she discovers the remains of Selene’s latest victims, drained dry of every iota of life-force, Rachel gets mad. This could have been prevented if Logan had not stopped her. Angrily she lashes out at Logan from across the town, making him live through the same pain as the two deceased must have. At the Hellfire Club, Selene has called a meeting of the Inner Circle. After informing them of Rachel’s attack, it is decided that she needs to be hunted down and if possible been turned into a Hellfire Club operative. Both search parties reach Rachel at the same time and naturally a battle erupts. Soon the Hellfire Club gains the upper hand, but suddenly the fight is interrupted by Nimrod, who registered the multiple mutant signature. He states that all mutants are criminals and that their punishment is death. In the confusion, Rachel slips away, thinking that the X-Men are better off without her.
