Synopsis
The Beyonder arrives on Earth. He desires knowledge and experience. Professor X sends out a distress call to all heroes. Cap, Iron Man, the X-Men and the New Mutants descend on L.A. The Beyonder gives a scriptwriter powers which he uses to start destroying society. The heroes arrive and mistake Thundersword for the Beyonder and battle him. Beyonder appears in the form of the Molecule Man. He causes Magik to become Darkchilde and the New Mutants teleport to Limbo. Lila Cheney teleports the X-Men out. Thundersword loses his powers. The Beyonder makes himself invisible and follows Cap.
