Synopsis
Stryker uses Jay's love for his dead girlfriend Julia to trick him into infiltrating Xavier's school. Cyclops and Emma open the front door to the mansion to discover Jay with his wings amputated. Emma comes down hard on the kids and pits most of the remaining students with powers against each other. Only the six left standing are allowed to continue training as X-Men and Emma makes Surge their new leader. Most of the kids who lost their powers on M-Day are put on a bus and sent home. As the bus is pulling away, however, a missile blows it up.
