Synopsis for "Scaredy Cat"

Illyana uses sorcery to check on Kitty's attempt to rescue Doug Ramsey from the White Queen, finds her captive, and gets her astral form blasted by the White Queen. This causes her to lose control of her spell, and some demons get loose in the mansion. The New Mutants, hearing Illyana's cry of pain, rush to her aid, and try to capture the demons. The demons finally captured, Illyana reveals herself as a sorceress to the New Mutants, and discloses that she discovered the White Queen had Kitty captive.

Ultimately they resolve to rescue her, and take a Greyhound bus to get to the Massachusetts Academy. (Along the way, Rahne and Sunspot behave strangely, with a flashback to their encounter with Cloak and Dagger). The New Mutants break into the Massachusetts Academy to free Kitty, find only an illusion where Illyana had seen her, and then get ambushed by the White Queen

Solicit Synopsis

Kitty Pryde is caught in the clutches of the Hellfire Club - and with the X-Men having mysteriously disappeared, only the New Mutants are around to save her! are they up to the task? "Scaredy-Cat" guest stars Cloak and Dagger.


  • Doug and Kitty's feelings for each other seem to justify Colossus's doubts in Uncanny X-Men #180 about his and Kitty's relationship.
  • The X-Men in Uncanny X-Men #180 allowed Kitty to accompany Doug to the Massachusetts Academy because Professor Xavier would mentally monitor her. When the White Queen revealed herself during Kitty and Doug's airplane flight Kitty called for help, but by then Xavier and the X-Men were on Battleworld during the Secret Wars.
  • While her fellow New Mutants learn that Illyana is a sorcerer, others—including her brother Peter—do not until Uncanny X-Men #188.
