THE NEWER MUTANTS Part 3
Cable, Armor and Doop are on route to pick up Shatterstar, Longshot and X-23 from Mongolia. Shatterstar tells Cable that Saul has been killed, with his heart being ripped out of his body. Cable shares a similar story about Burke being killed back in Washington. Shatterstar also mentions that when they arrived to Saul, they saw Selene and the other Externals by his body, assuming that it was them who killed Saul. Longshot also mentions that Blink was also with Selene.
They all board the blackbird heading to Colorado, where one if Gideon's lairs remain. Shatterstar asks Cable why are they trying to stop the Externals from possibly killing one another. Cable answers that this isn't how this is supposed to happen at this point in history and that it could have devastating consequences in the timestream.
In Colorado, Cable and the others enter Gideon's lair, greeted by Eve, one of Gideon's personal assistants; now in a robot form with A.I. She informs him that she expected his arrival, thanks to the many psychics that are there, living in tanks. As they reach Gideon, it is revealed that Gideon has been in stasis since the last time Selene tried to kill him (a decade ago)
Selene and the Externals arrive to Washington, but realize they are too late as Burke, too, has been killed, with his heart ripped out of his body. Selene thinks she knows who is behind this and orders Blink to teleport them all to Colorado.
After a few more explanations by Eve, Cable and the others are exploring the room. Doop, however, touches something he shouldn't, and out comes Adam, another of Gideon's "cyber-upgraded" personal assistants. All present are ready to attack one another, when out comes Gideon. Cable says he knows that it is he who is behind the murders of the two Externals. Cable explains to him that there will be dire consequences to his actions and is ready to battle him.
The psychics in the tanks awaken, and attack Cable and the others psychically. Doop throws a psionic shield blocking the attack, allowing them to fight on. Gideon releases a pack of monsters from the future to fight, while he escapes. Cable and the others fight them, and asks Longshot and Armor to go after Gideon. They manage to break through the door, however they now have to face all the psychics that have escaped their tanks, waiting for them...
