Title: Third genesis

Description: The students settle into their new home at the Massachusetts Academy. Jubilee, Synch and Banshee act as welcome committee to the British mutant Jonothan Starsmore when he arrives in the US. Emplate attacks, hoping to feed on Jono's bone marrow but eventually flees when Gateway teleports the remaining members of the team to the scene of the fight. That night Gateway appears once more at the Academy bringing with him a young mutant girl, a former captive of Emplate, and utters one word...'penance'.

Comments: Very enjoyable issue. Bachalo draws realistic teenagers instead of miniature adults and a very clear idea is given of the personality of each character.
