Plot

Scalphunter has been coerced by someone in the United States to fly a plane to Utopia, the new mutant homeland established on the now-floating ruins of Asteroid M. That plane, however, has five cybernetically enhanced Predator X creatures, intended to wreak havoc in the struggling community.

A quick bit of surveillance by Nightcrawler is enough to give Scott a warning, but even though he destroys the plane, four of the creatures survive. The X-Men have trained to face these monsters, and now it's time to see if that training pays off.
