Comic Summary: X-23 dreams of an idyllic moment at a fair in the past when Wolverine offered to adopt her. In horrific contrast, she wakes up with the halfway house on fire and everybody dead. She tries to get outside and sees a living unconscious man, but her way is barred by a demon who tries to seduce her. It disappears and Laura carries the man outside but, when he wakes up, he claims she caused the fire. She is comforted by Gambit. Later, back at Utopia, Storm and Cyclops talk to Laura, who still believes she is to blame. The two X-Men walk outside to discuss matters while Wolverine keeps Laura company. Not the real Wolverine, though, but the demon Hellverine as Laura has figured out. She attacks him but, at that moment, Hellion enters and believes Laura has snapped. He traps her telekinetically, allowing Hellverine to injure him mortally. Laura offers her life for his and Hellverine sends her to a hellish landscapeÖ Unaware of what has transpired, Storm asks Gambit to help X-23.

When Laura regains consciousness Miss Sinister explains that, ever since she used that chair, the real Mr. Sinister has managed to take more and more control over her, therefore she wants to transfer her consciousness into Lauraís body. The process begins but, much to her surprise, she only manages to transfer Mr. Sinisterís consciousness into Laura. More surprisingly, Laura manages to cast him out, eliminating Sinisterís consciousness. Alice, in the meantime, has freed Gambit, who in turn activates the labís self-destruct. Now freed, Laura offers Miss Sinister a chance at redemption, which is promptly rejected. Feeling the necessary offer made, Laura guts Miss Sinister, who nonetheless manages to escape. With an injured and unconscious Alice in his arms, Gambit tricks Laura to escape, even though she wants to look for the last Alice clone, and the trio make it out of the facility before in implodes. Together they take Alice to a hospital, where Laura decides to look for Malcolm Colcord and stop his new Weapon Plus program. Meanwhile, unknown to them, the last Alice clone has survived the labís implosion and is now possessed by the real Mr. Sinister, who has Miss Sinister as his prisoner.
