I own the first two issues of this series. I own this for the Magik appearance, which is part of the flashback to the first two issues and if you can make out Magik on that page, you are better than me.
As I guess she is one of the nameless faceless ones but they are all accounted for, if you count their heads.
So I feel pretty foolish for buying this but I am the fool who is collecting all of Magik’s appearances, so that is on me.
This issue is so weird!
Issue opens with Chance about to undergo a forced makeover. The Fallen Angels, including Sunspot and Warlock, coming running to her rescue. Sunspot makes some chauvinist comments, whoever thought the worst New Mutant could carry a book, should have their head examine. It makes complete sense that this book will be has all over the place, as it has to be.
Boom Boom shows up and throws a little spark bomb down Sunspot’s pants, which explodes and exposes him. Sunspot is all ego so he is highly embarrassed.
We get that flashback sequence from above.
Ariel and Chance have a conversation that implies that they are setting up the Fallen Angels. Boom Boom is confused but walks away.
Siryn and Multiple Man (but not the real one, a rogue dupe who can make other dupes) arrive.
Some little dude start talking to Boom Boom, she hints that Ariel may be a mutant and not an alien. Two guards overhear this.
Jack Kirby’s Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy are also on this spaceship, I love these two so much! They are not as fun here as they typically are. I think they are mostly confused why they are there.
I guess Ariel’s plan was to sell the mutants to a space warlord. Now that the guy knows she is a mutant, they take her as well, as the issue ends.
