Shadowcat uses Illyana's Soulsword to transform her from the Darkchilde back to her normal human form, manifesting Magik's armor in the process. The kids return to earth from Limbo and once again head to the mutant arena to rescue the captured Magma and Sunspot. They are secretly spied on by the Beyonder but Rachel senses him and tries to communicate. Dazzler and Shadowcat infiltrate the Gladiators but are captured by the one who is actually controlling events in the arena, the former New Mutant, Karma.
