Synopsis for "Uncanny"
The Children of the Atom stop an armed robbery by Helle's Belles in downtown New York City and are confronted afterward by a contingent of X-Men who give them feedback on their crime-fighting and offer for them to come live with the mutants on Krakoa. Once they decline, another group of X-Men debate whether they should get involved in encouraging them to come to the island. The teens return to their daily lives and after a day at school, they suit up in their adventuring costumes and head to a portal that would take them to Krakoa but once they try to enter, they cannot.
