Promising that he will not use his powers if he is allowed to go see his girlfriend Lila perform, Cannonball is relieved when Magneto allows him to go. However, at the concert Lila is attacked by aliens who have come to take her back to their master, Spyder, an alien who claims that he “owns” Lila. Someone else that he claims to own is a alien called Gosamyr, who also made her way to Earth to try and help Lila. The other New Mutants listen to the concert on the radio, and debate Sam’s choice in making a promise not to use his powers. Before Mirage and Sunspot can get into an argument over who is the weaker sex, they learn of the troubles at the concert, and after hearing Magneto talk to the White Queen about power neutralizers decide not to tell the headmaster where they are going, and after a quick detour to Limbo, arrive at the concert where they find Sam has not used his powers and engage in battle with the aliens – who eventually kidnap Lila. The New Mutants are not fast enough in tracking them, but soon encounter Gosamyr who tells them their story. Mirage and Magik find it rather suspect, but Sunspot is completely enthralled by her and promises to help her rescue her imprisoned family, while Spyder observes the New Mutants and decides that he has to have them.
