    When the Power Pack's parents have their minds erased, Kitty Pryde gathers the X-Men together to set things right for the super-powered siblings!

    * Crossover with Power Pack #12*

    The four super-powered siblings of Power Pack- Alex, Julie, Jack and Katie- awake in the middle of the night to discover that their parents don't know who they are. Not only that, but their belongings, down to their favorite breakfast cereals, have been removed from their apartment.

    The kids flee the apartment and descend into the sewers, where they are apprehended by the Morlocks. The Morlocks previously attempted to kidnap Power Pack so they could be adopted by AnnaLee, a mutant who recently lost her own children; they're not giving up.

    Only five-year-old Katie is able to escape from the Morlocks, although her face is horribly deformed by Masque. She runs into the subway tunnels, where she is frightened by a passing train. A police officer discovers her, but since she is scared and unable to see in the dark, she hits him with a power ball. Katie is subdued and brought to Bellevue Hospital. She refuses to speak or identify herself.

    The next morning, Kitty Pryde sees Katie's photo on the news. She assembles a small team of X-Men - Wolverine, Rachel, and Rogue - to rescue Katie from the hospital, and gives Katie a special jacket to make her an honorary X-Man.

    The X-Men and Katie enter the Morlocks' territory. They discover that the Power siblings' rooms have been reassembled in the sewers, and that the other three children have been disfigured by Masque and have had their memories erased by the Morlock, Beautiful Drreamer. They now believe that the empath Morlock AnnaLee is their mother, and they immediately attack the X-Men. In the midst of the battle, Julie grabs Katie and takes her to have her memories erased. Kitty Pryde follows and attempts to reason with AnnaLee to let Katie go, to no avail.

    Callisto finally appears and orders the Morlocks to release Power Pack, restore their memories and faces, and put everything right at home. She admonishes the Morlocks to consider Power Pack to be completely off-limits, like the X-Men, and threatens AnnaLee with death in the ring if she disobeys.
