Back from France, the X-Men learn that Madelyne has given birth to a son. Madelyne confides in Storm her fears that Cyclops doesn't really care about her and the baby and that she needs some proof that Scott really wants the two of them in his life. Later while the X-Men and New Mutants have fun playing base-ball and enjoying each others' company, Scott and Maddelyne angrily discuss the meaning of their marriage and why Cyclops won't just leave the X-Men. Storm offers Scott a duel in the Danger Room to decide who will lead the X-Men from now on. Cyclops accepts the offer, upsetting Madelyne even more and is defeated in combat by Ororo despite her being powerless. Meanwhile, Rachel repairs the holoempathic crystal of Jean Grey she accidentally destroyed. A beam of energy transects from the spot on the moon where Phoenix died down towards earth. Light-years away, aboard the vessel of the Starjammers, the recovered Professor Xavier learns that he won't be able to return to earth before very long and is unsure whether handing the X-Men and New Mutants to Magneto was the right decision.
