Cannonball was a member of Emma Frost's Academy of Tomorrow, a somewhat more pacifistic alternative to the X-Men. He was the newest member.

When fellow student Lorna Dane was framed for murder and thus imprisoned in the Triskelion, her boyfriend, Alex Summers, recruited a strike team. With Sam and Alex was Sunspot, Douglas Ramsey and Northstar. During the trip to New York, the team became lost and was ambushed by the X-Men. Cannonball initially literally swept Wolverine off his feet but was soon defeated.


It is mentioned that Samuel was killed by Madrox copies.
