Synopsis for "A Nocturne's Tale Part 1 of 2"

Nocturne recounts memories from her life in her home reality a few months prior to being recruited for the Exiles.

She begins at the story of the switch between her Aunt Kate, and the 16 year old Kitty who replaced her due to a malfunction in Apocalypse's Chronal Disruptor. Talia became the one in charge of the new recruit, and showed her around the complex, introducing her to Lucien (Plague) and Moira along the way.

It was an interesting time for the X-Men of Earth-2182, as Armageddon had recently betrayed his father, Apocalypse, and joined the team. He was as much out of place at the X-Mansion as his father would have been.

Logan continued to have nightmares about the worst day of his life, when the Shadow King forced him to murder Xavier, causing him to be paralyzed for the rest of his life. The Phoenix Force never understood why he wouldn't let her heal his wounds, and his gruff response sendt her away for awhile.

Back in training, Nightcrawler once again was too hard on his daughter, fearing that she won't be ready when the time comes to really fight.

In the middle of talking about his parenting techniques with Logan, Scott attacks the school with his team of Exiles.
