Synopsis for "Crosstown Rivals"

The kids from the Jean Grey Institute come over to California for a football game against those from Avengers Academy. It gives Gambit a chance to catch up with X-23 and Wolverine to get his own back on Hank Pym for throwing him out of the Quinjet earlier. It also provides a welcome opportunity to relax and for the kids to get to know each other. As the game gets underway, Warbird and Quicksilver have a go at each other, but that only serves to get Warbird interested in Pietro romantically. Kitty and Veil have discussion about their relative powers and Finesse admits to X-23 that it was actually she who killed Jeremy Briggs. Meanwhile, the teachers discuss the future of the academy, with Hank Pym having an idea which he wishes to run past the other staff members.
