Synopsis for "The Hellfire Saga, Part 1 of 5"

Kid Omega and a new mutant called Snot are brought by the Philistine to a remote island in the Pacific in order to attend the Hellfire Academy. Among the staff are supervillains such as Mystique, Sauron, and Master Pandemonium, as well as recent X-Men defectors Toad and Husk. The staff all subject the students to brutal treatment.

Kid Omega talks with Oya, revealing he joined the Hellfire Academy to help her find out who shot Broo. Meanwhile, Toad shares an intimate moment with Husk, who acts cold and distant towards him. Toad is dismayed to learn that he will be a janitor again, rather than a teacher.

Meanwhile, Wolverine, Storm and Rachel shut down one of the Hellfire Club's Sentinel factories in their search for their lost students. Disappointed that he failed to protect his students, Wolverine declares he will shut down the Jean Grey School as soon as he finds them.

As the school day progresses, Snot is continuously upstaged and humilliated, causing the principal to call him to his office. After three days pass without his return, Kid Omega becomes suspicions, and he intentionally causes trouble until he is sent to the principal's office as well.

The principal is Kade Kilgore, the current Black King of the Hellfire Club, and Kid Omega is surprised to find that he is shielded from his telepathic probes. Kade reveals that he's been privy to Kid Omega's thoughts the entire time and sentences him to detention. A now superhumanly strong Snot appears and reveals that detention consists of a painful stay in the Siege Perilous, which saps the victim's will until they become Kade's obedient minion.
