Previously... Hope Summers. The “Mutant Messiah.” She’s survived assassination attempts, a nightmarish future and a brutal assault by Bastion’s Nimrod sentinels. She’s proven that she’s a fighter, but does she have what it takes to be a leader? Hope’s return from the future has ushered in the emergence of a handful of new mutants – five, to be exact – and the activation of their powers appears somehow tied to Hope. As Hope joins with Rogue to gather the two remaining newly powered mutants, the X-Men begin recovering in the aftermath of Bastion’s attack. While each begins making preparations for the future, Emma Frost begins forming a scheme to erase a dark part of her past – Sebastian Shaw, now held as a secret prisoner in the brig of the X-Men’s island home, Utopia.
