Synopsis for "Prologue"Edit

The X-Men and their students are at the funeral for a mutant boy they once failed to recruit, and recently got caught in their crossfire. Cyclops has a hard time coping with it especially since he can't remember the deceased boy's name, and has a talk to his parents. He later also has a pep talk with Wolverine who convinces Scott to never give up the fight. During the funeral, Mercury and some other students show their feelings towards having been to so many funerals in their short lives already, and that they aren't even sophomores yet.

After the funeral, Professor Xavier discovers that the priest at the funeral was none other than Sebastian Shaw using an image inducer, and they also have a conversation. Multiple Man suggests that Beast investigates what's going on with the mutants, and offers his and his duplicates aid.
