Synopsis for "Welcome to the X-Men! Now Die!"

Professor X gives Wolverine his blessings for the latest iteration of the school, now called the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. Now they only have to survive a visit by inspectors from the New York State Department of Education. The visit goes badly, to say the least, with the classes and teaching methods either baffling or straight out disgusting the inspectors. Not even Beast’s charm can save the situation. In the meantime, Kade Kilgore, new Black King of the Hellfire Club, introduces himself to Wolverine and threatens the school, only moments before the inspectors are panicking, chased by a horde of extra-dimensional Bamfs. And that very moment, the ground comes alive, threatening to swallow the school…
