Synopsis for "Slumber Party!"Edit

New Mutants Vol 1 21 001
The local school girls get invited over for a slumber party at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters with the female New Mutants. In orbit, Asteroid M gets trashed by Warlock, headed for earth. Rahne socks Sam for not recognizing her when he and Sunspot knock to see if they can join. (Who would recognize her after a gaggle of teenage girls got done dressing her up?) Warlock crash lands in the swimming pond at the Xavier Institute and is carried into the lab and left for Professor X. Warlock comes to consciousness, drains some power from the wall socket, and goes looking for more palatable energy sources. Illyana and Lockheed fight it briefly, and retreat to Limbo. The other New Mutants (excluding Dani who is still recovering from injuries) go to deal with it before their guests realize something is going on. Warlock flees to the danger room and realizing that the intruder is probably scared and unfamiliar with earth; the New Mutants go and get Doug Ramsey to talk to him. Warlock's origin is revealed and he joins the school.
