Still, fighting almost breaks out again when Daisy tells Masque to help Sabretooth with his lost hand and the Morlock refuses. The argument is cut short when SHIELD agents discover them and shoot tranqs at Masque. The other Morlocks tell the X-Men to leave. They will handle this. Actually, they are handled and captured by the SHIELD agents, but in turn they are soon freed by another group of Morlocks led by Callisto who is in league with a mysterious person called the Ghost Panther. Back at the Mansion, Jean tries to telepathically question Mystique, but Mystique instead turns the tables on her, taunting her with the faces of dead and lost loved ones. Without the others noticing, Jean threatens her as Phoenix, then notices she is losing control and runs away. Nightcrawler is next, however he refuses to absorb his mother’s memories, preferring faith. Rogue angrily berates him for that and demands answers until Mystique finally admits she lost everyone she loved and doesn’t want to make the same mistakes with her children. When the other group returns from the Morlock tunnels, Moira wants to examine Mystique as she has immunity to Burnout. Mystique first tries to haggle, then agrees in order to not disappoint Kurt and Rogue.

Comic Summary: The Ghost Panther – the adult Storm consisting only of energy – shares her memories with ‘Ro. When young Ororo, along with several New Mutants, had been kidnapped by the Genoshans, Storm was to undergo the Mutate transmode process on Cameron Hoge’s order. However, while Hodge was busy with other X-Men prisoners, the Genegineer told Storm of his plans to fake the process and replace her with a specially-grown clone that would be able to return their powers to her captured friends. Ororo went along the plan and was stored as energy in Pipeline’s transfax console. Unfortunately, both Pipeline and the Genegineer died in the conflict, while the cloned Storm replaced her with the X-Men. Eventually, the transfax console landed in the hands of the Consortium. When its scientists examined the device, a chain reaction started, creating young ‘Ro and the energy Storm. A solution for energy Storm and her unstable powers came from Iron Man, who gave her an armor to contain her powers, as well as the Ghost Panther identity. In the meantime, clone Storm went bad, due to her partial ability to store and return powers making her vulnerable to the Shadow King’s corruption. In the present, said Clone – now Queen Storm of Wakanda – decides to call the Avengers to help against the X-Men.
