Generation X [Banshee; Emma Frost [White Queen]; M; Husk; Skin; Synch; Jubilee; Chamber; Penance]; Bastion (villain); Daria (villain); Operation Zero Tolerance Soldiers (villain); Nightmare (villain)
Most of the Gen X kids are floating on a small bio-organic platform in the middle of the ocean with no land or rescue in sight. They try to endure the ravages of the sea and the sun without totally freaking out. Sean mourns the death of Emma (Black Tom forced him to kill her last issue) but is ecstatic to learn that she merely faked her demise. They try to figure out where the kids have gone. Jubilee tries to escape from Bastion and Operation Zero Tolerance but fails.
