Dazzler's powers are out of control and she is recuperating under the watchful eye of Beast at a residence for displaced mutants. The pair begin to foster a romance.

She agrees, Beast follows and attends Dazzler's first performance and is horrified to find that the theater is a arena where mutants fight. Alex promises Dazzler it is staged but a mutant is killed. Beast tries to get Dazzler to leave with him but she begins to feel at home with her fellow misfit mutants and refuses.
