Synopsis for "Orphans of X: Part 1"
In Japan, "a lifetime ago", Muramasa's consort informs him that Wolverine is coming for his sword. As the two meet, Muramasa asks Logan to tell him what he needs the blade for, and he answers "My revenge." Satisfied with the answer, Muramasa lets him have the blade, not telling him he also created a shield he will use one day to protect himself or his family.
In a bar in the middle of nowhere, now, Daken asks for some water as a regular offers him something to drink as thanks for saving Roosevelt Island. Daken smells nervousness around, so he realizes it's a trap. Suddenly, the customers attack him and he easily manages to evade them. The woman behind the counter triggers an electrified net gun that stuns and envelops him, revealing they are all part of an organization known as the "Orphans of X." They all put on a crossed mask and leave the bar as a jet drops a missile on it, causing it to explode.
On Roosevelt Island, NYC, the newly gifted home of Laura and Gabby, the two sisters are arguing about a possible new and more menacing name for the younger one, when someone calls Laura: it's NYPD Officer Thompson, who found the arm of her brother Daken hanging off of the Queensboro Bridge. A piece of paper with an X symbol is there too, and it smells like the Facility, where Laura was created. Back home, Laura waits for Gabby to fall asleep and goes on the mission alone.
Later, Laura is on an airplane owned by her boyfriend, Warren a.k.a. Angel, who's accompanying her. They didn't use his ability to fly because Laura hopes to return with a third person, her brother, on board. As she enters the Facility, memories come to mind: how she was tortured, trained, made to kill and how she reacted by killing everyone working there, including her "mother", Dr. Sarah Kinney. Laura finds a room with someone in stasis and, assuming it's Daken, she shatters it only to find between her arms who she believes to be none others than... Sarah Kinney, the woman who raised her.
