We join the Original Five, Professor Kitty and Magik in Miami as their first mission on Team Cyclops. They are there to locate a mutant in the city.
The Original Five get introduced to the sadness that is the Purifiers. Human that don’t just hate mutants, they hate them on religious grounds. Spouting off bible quotes and being ripe jerks.
Magik and the Original Five are fighting the Purifiers and Kitty runs after the lady mutant. The Original Five are not prepared for this new level of hatred. Jean gets a recap on what the Purifiers have done, including killing the depowered mutants back in the New X-Men title, Reverendn Stryker’s participation and some of the Second Comic exploits.
Angel lifts one of the Purifiers into the sky and gives an awesome speech about how he resembles an angel and shouldn’t the Purifiers rethink their thoughts on mutants being demons and such. Then he drops that soldier to his would be death. Iceman catches him but it looks like Angel had no intention to saving the soldier at the last moment. That fellow was going to die.
Kitty is still chasing this mutant, Laura. They are nowhere near the other members.
The cops surround the Original Five and Magik and tell them to raise their hands.
Poor Scott tries to rationalize with the cops. Saying that the police have nothing to worry about but the police are insane mutant bigots are start shooting their guns. Magik teleports the team back to the New Xavier School. She gets mad at Scott for not instantly listening to her in the first place to back down.
Kitty finally tackles this Laura. Laura goes snikt and turns out, this Laura is X-23 and she has no memory of Kitty.
Next issue promises some kissing!
