The story begins with the voice of Stan Lee: "Look around you... you never know who could be a mutant, a person born with strange and wondrous powers..." It is the desert. The X-Men’s archenemy Magneto is being transported by a military convoy, unable to use his powers, trapped in a force field. That is, until the White Queen appears. A member of his "Brotherhood of Mutant Terrorists", she scatters the escort and dismantles the field restricting Magneto, allowing him to use his magnetic powers to tear apart his portable prison.

Elsewhere, a taxi pulls up to a mansion; inside is young Kitty Pryde. Professor Xavier has invited her to the his school because she is a mutant, and here he can train her in her power, the ability of phasing that allows her to pass through solid matter. He then takes her to the Danger Room where the other students are training. They are the X-Men: Cyclops, Colossus, Dazzler, Nightcrawler, Storm and Wolverine. The team is friendly when they are introduced, but Kitty is frightened by Nightcrawler's demon-like appearance, and Wolverine insists that "the X-Men don’t have room for whiny brats."

An alarm sounds: evil mutants have been detected, and the X-Men are off.
