Synopsis for "Mr. M: 1 of 6"

District X, also known as Mutant Town, is a section of New York where mutants seem to flock. It has a higher than average number of them and, as a result, the police there are fighting a losing battle and are in need of help. Officer’s Ismael ‘Izzy’ Ortega and Gus Kucharsky are two such officers, experienced but miles apart in terms of outlook. Gus is in a hospital ward, recovering from a gunshot wound with only a vague recollection of events leading to his hospitalization. His friend, Izzy, explains how he came to be in this condition. They were out on patrol one day, dealing with the strange things that happen all the time in District X. They met a few characters who inhabit the area before being called to McCarthy Avenue, where a woman was reportedly being held against her will.

Upon arriving at the scene, the hostage’s sister explained that her sister’s husband was keeping her chained up and wouldn’t let her out. Her sister had a history of people fighting over her and one boy called her a siren. The officers visited her sister’s apartment and forced their way in before her husband, Jake, could open the door. They found his wife bound and gagged. Izzy cuffed Jake, while Gus freed his wife. As soon as she opened her mouth to thank him, he was under her mental thrall and she commanded him to kill Jake. To Izzy’s horror, he did just that, before turning to Jake’s wife and killing her too. When he tried taking his own life, Izzy just managed to misdirect the bullet and he ‘merely’ suffered a head wound. In the hospital ward, Izzy provides Gus with an alternate series of events, whereby Internal Affairs will be led to believe that Jake killed his own wife and then tried to kill Gus. With Gus in hospital, Izzy is given a new assignment by his boss. He has a new partner to babysit, and his name is Bishop.
