Synopsis for "Primer, Part 1 of 3"
Before this planet came to be, there were two siblings. The male banished the female to the cosmos, while he would inherit primordial Earth.
In the present, the female piggybacks on a series of small meters towards Earth seeking revenge. The male: John Sublime follows her trace. Three weeks later in Bulgaria, Jubilee decides to return to the X-Men bringing an orphan baby with her.
At the Jean Grey School, Storm and Rachel break up an argument between Bling! and Mercury. Rogue and Kitty warn them that Jubilee has called telling she’s being followed by someone. Sublime who’s been following her finds out Jubilee is heading to the school. Storm, Rogue and Kitty decide to intercept Jubilee’s train and investigate. Sublime arrives at the school and is promptly threatened by Rachel and Psylocke. Sublime claims he has come to ask for their help.
Meanwhile, Jubilee explains to the X-Men that she rescued the baby from an explosion and has been taking care of him ever since. Without anyone realizing, the baby touches a speaker which ends up disrupting the train controls, killing the drivers. Rogue takes matters into her hands and manages to save all passengers before the train could run into another.
At the school, Sublime explains that his sister has come to infect and dominate this world and hopes that the X-Men help him to stop her. Arkea is her name she’s more likely to possess machines. Psylocke attest the veracity in his words. Jubilee and the baby arrive at the school. Arkea who was possessing the baby transfers herself via electronics to Omega Sentinel and awakes.

Meanwhile, Jubilee has come home, and she's brought with her an orphaned baby who might hold the key to the earth's survival...or its destruction.
