Torpedo is patrolling Clariton when he is attacked by the newly re-formed Hybrid. On a snowy road, Rom saves a prison road crew from a runaway prison transport. The convicts trick him by telling them that they are chained up because they are slaves. Rom follows the transport back to the prison to free the rest of the "slaves" but ends up in a battle with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants who are masterminding an escape. Mystique, Rogue and Destiny get away but stop for shelter in a house inhabited by Hybrid.
