Vail, Colorado, two figures skiing down a mountain, one a woman, one a man. It becomes clear the woman is Wolverine, then when she fall and is saved by the man we find he’s Angel. They are in a relationship it turns out. Angel gets a phone call. It’s Hank in Florida asking if he’s heard from Scott. Hank is worried about him.
We find Scott in Chicago researching a gang of mutants calling themselves the Ghosts of Cyclops. They claim to be activists but they are just common thieves. He believes he figured out their pattern and there next target is where he sits. A girl named Marla randomly sits with him. As they chat they are attacked. It’s the “Ghosts of Cyclops” just as Scott predictated. He attempts to subdue them but is caught off guard and downed by one of them. Just at that moment the cops arrive. The Ghosts make their escape. During the fight one of the Ghosts dropped his wallet. Marla then refers to them a Mutant trash and Cyclops a monster. Scott just walks away.
Austin, Texas Ice man is putting on a show, using his mutant powers openly to make a giant statue of the Thing. Hank worries about openly using powers all things considered. Iceman assures him Austin is mutant friendly. We find out Hanks trailer is much bigger on the inside then it is on the outside.
Cyclops tracks down Austin (one of the Ghost) to Algar University. He heads to the library to cyber stalk him, but 2 other Ghosts spot him walking into campus. The trap is set. The Ghosts of Cyclops gang ambush Scott in the Library. they beat up bad. They ask themselves “what would Cyclops do?”. To which Scott answers with an optic blast, then passes out.
Beasts modified Cerebro picks up the energy signature and alerts Beast. So he teleports to the library bringing the whole team with him. (and the van and trailer)
So Hank’s trailer is the Tardis it seems. lol. Well I haven’t read much about what happen with Cyclops or these younger versions of the original X-Men, so I’ll need to read more before I can say much more. I am curious who the darker girl with the team as they never said her name in this comic that I noticed. Curious what her name is and what she can do.
