Synopsis for 1st story
Years ago William Stryker preached to a large crowd about how the existence of mutants are blasphemous. Afterwards Doctor Lyle Getz from A.I.M. talked to him about his sons - Jason - sickness. Stryker insisted on his son being able to fight mutants when the day would come that he had to.
Now, Jason Stryker is holding the original X-Mens team captive and demands revenge for his fathers death. his henchmen argue though that killing the X-Men of the past might have unsuspected consequenzes. Shortly after this discussion Stryker wakes up Laura to show her footage from when she was forced to fight other super-powered teens in Murderworld. Shortly after this presentation Doctor Monica Rappaccini from A.I.M. arrives and suggests to let the original X-Men go as their presence alone could have unknown effects, although she does plan to take samples of the X-Mens DNA to combine them with material of Inhumans. Before it comes to this the X-Men can use their powers to escape however. When Cyclops approached Laura who was sitting on the ground, she embraced him, a rare moment of her showing affection.
Kitty finally contacts S.H.I.E.L.D. to take care of the Purifiers.
