This entire issue concerns an episode in the life of Mystique. We see her in a guise as the wife to a German baron. Ever mischievous we see Raven messing around with several of the help people at her husband’s mansion. Introduced at a societal party Lady Wagner (Raven) is attracted to Herr Azazel and lies with him in a church that he is staying in while in the country. The results of that union are shown in the rest of the story.
