Synopsis for "Solace"
After the battle with Garokk, Storm is swimming in a lake in the Savage Land when she's attacked by a giant crocodilian from the depths. She notices a woman in a diving suit stuck to the saurian by a harpoon line, so she risks her life to free her and then strikes the beast with lightning when it surfaces, but she's too close to the backlash when she does and is knocked out. She dreams of her lost mother and comes to on another world. The woman she saved introduces herself as M'Rin and explains that the lake was a junction point between their dimensions. M'Rin took Ororo aboard her ship to look after her out of gratitude for saving her life. Ororo is about to ask how she might return home when she notices M'Rin's ship is built onto the back of a giant, flying, talking fox named C'Jime and learns that M'Rin is the magnanimus warlord of the skyways and so she instantly decides to blow off her homeworld to have high-flying adventures with her new friends for a few days.
At one point, Storm learns that M'Rin had a daughter that grew to be the leader of the evil pirates they had been fighting. Deciding that it's time to stop being surrogate mother and daughter for each other, M'Rin and Ororo tearfully part ways, but M'Rin gifts Ororo with a cameo crystal bonded to her that will allow them to sense each other's well-being and lead them back to each other at some point in the future.
