Cannonball, Cypher, Mirage and Warlock are stranded in a future that’s a utopia for mutants and hell for normal humans, so they soon find themselves on the side of the underdogs, stealing medicine and food for the humans. They join up with an elderly Katie Power who is also a fighter for humans’ rights. Unfortunately, they all are eventually taken prisoner by the Arbitrators, and find the leaders of this society are adult version of Sunspot and Magma. When the New Mutants threaten they will do their best to prevent this society from coming to pass, Sunspot plans to have them brainwashed. In the present, Magneto has nightmares about the day the Nazis murdered his family. Awake, he tries to figure out whether or not to join the Hellfire Club, aware that any decision could lead to destruction for mutant-kind.
