As an amnesiac preteen with little, undependable powers, Ororo has reverted to her thieving ways, chased by both Nanny and the Shadow King. The evil telepath eventually sets up a trap in a mansion and Ororo walks right into it. In the meantime, the Shadow King has also taken possession of Val Cooper and ordered her to kill Mystique. Somewhere in space, a warrior race falls to the mysterious Shi’ar champion.
David & N'Dare Munroe & the X-Men (except Storm) appear only in flashback.
Mystique & Destiny appear only as psychic images.
