Synopsis for "The Gentleman's Name is Magneto"
The X-Men are sent to Moira MacTaggert’s Island because she hasn’t heard from Jamie Madrox, who she left in charge. As they approach, their hovercraft is pulled apart by some force from the island. They are attacked when they reach shore and Banshee speculates that only one person could attack them like this. Sure enough, Magneto appears and begins to pummel the New X-Men. Cyclops and Moira show up at the back of the island and we get an injured Jamie Madrox’s flashback of Polaris, Havok, and Erik the Red showing up and turning baby Magneto into full-grown Magneto. Cyclops is worried, shows up at the battle just in time to stun Magneto and helps the rest of the X-Men retreat. Meanwhile, the Starjammers are somewhere in space, and Polaris, Havok, and Erik the Red are about to ambush Professor X and Phoenix.
