Rahne Sinclair, Illyana Rasputin, Sam Guthrie and Roberto da Costa are four young mutants detained in an isolated hospital for psychiatric treatment. Dr. Cecilia Reyes, who considers these adolescents dangerous to themselves as well as to society, monitors them closely and tries to teach them to master their powers. When a newcomer, Danielle Moonstar, joins the establishment, strange events appear. Young mutants are hallucinated and flashbacked, and their new abilities – as well as their friendship – are put to the test in a frantic struggle for survival.

But in reality, it was never discussed.
