- That's what public relations is. 'P.R.' was coined by Edward Benays in the '20s. 'Propoganda' had somehow picked up a bad reputation in the war. So he started calling it P.R. instead. Plain brilliant rebranding: Something everyone with an ounce of sanity despises transformed into something just about palatable. Even necessary. That's what we've got to do to you. We have to make this work. And if we don't, you need to leave this island. Immediately. Because if you stay, everyone's dead. Sooner or later, you're going to attract something even you can't stop.

Synopsis for 1st story
Kate Kildare and Donald Evans fly in a helicopter towards Utopia. The two plan to have an interview with Magneto, who recently became a member of the X-Men.
Meanwhile, two A.I.M. officers deliver a mysterious device to a man.
In Utopia, Scott and Emma meet with Kate and Donald, and they make preparations with the interview.
In San Francisco, mayor Sadie Sinclair recieves news about A.I.M.'s activities and contacts the X-Men. As the X-Men board the Blacbird, Cyclops informs the team that A.I.M. is forcing several of San Francisco's corporations. If they don't, they will unleash an earthquake with a device they made.
In Utopia, Kate begins the interview with Magneto, who uses his powers on a fragment of the Breakworld bullet.
The X-Men arrive at the abandoned base, while Kitty hacks into the airport's systems. She discovers that the earthquake will happen in 15 minutes.
In Utopia, Kate reasons with Magneto about the recent human-mutant relations.
Meanwhile, the X-Men authorize Namor to attack the A.I.M. agents.
Kate tells Magneto that he needs to prove people he is no longer a threat, otherwise he will cause a lot of trouble for mutants.
The X-Men defeat the A.I.M. agents. Then, Cyclops tells one agent to deactive the earthquake device, but the agent replies that they never had an earthquake machine. They had a machine that predicted when earthquakes were going to happen.
Emma warns everyone and Magneto uses his powers to mantain buildings and metallic structures firm while the earthquake hits. With the danger passed, Magneto says that the interview is over.
Magneto is an X-Man. This may not be news to you, but only a handful in the Marvel Universe know that the poster boy for Fearing Mutants is now living just off the coast of one of the United State's largest cities. How on Earth are the X-Men going to explain the presence of one of the world's most infamous super villains? This Point One issue provides the answer, and is a perfect jumping on point to the flagship X-Men book. And to make it even MORE special, superstar-artist CARLOS PACHECO (ULTIMATE AVENGERS, ULTIMATE THOR) gets in on the fun!
Breakworld bullet is mentioned by Magneto (Erik Lehnsherr)
