Synopsis for "Too Many Mutants!"

In the War Room beneath Xavier’s School, Storm, Cyclops, and Marvel Girl argue with Cable over the way forward for the New Mutants, X-Factor, and the X-Men.  Cable advocates for an aggressive, militant stance, but the others sharply disagree, citing Xavier’s ideals.  After Cable leaves, the discussion continues, and Storm wonders if he may be right.  Banshee calls Moira and is unsettled by her sexually forward demeanor.  Having studied the Genoshan mutate process, Forge warns Beast that they have a limited time to undo it with Wolfsbane before it becomes permanent.  Meanwhile, Boom-Boom and Iceman play pranks on each other, and Archangel trains Cannonball in the Danger Room.  Gambit suggests to Storm they leave and return to thievery, but she insists on staying. Psylocke tells Marvel Girl about her transformation by the Hand.  Jubilee watches Wolverine spar with Gambit in the Danger Room and cries when Gambit wins. Marvel Girl recalls Professor X and Moira showing her Cerebro for the first time.  She tries to use it to find the X-Men still missing, but she is immediately attacked by the Shadow King on the astral plane.  He overpowers her until Psylocke intervenes and stabs her with her psychic knife.  Marvel Girl is saved but loses her memory of the attack.  Later, she and Cyclops join Storm in meeting the other X-Men amidst the school’s ruins.  Suddenly, Lila Cheney pulls up in a car with her bodyguard Guido, claiming Professor X is in trouble.  Storm tells her to take the X-Men to him immediately, and they vanish as she teleports them away.
