Kitty Pryde is kidnapped by Emma Frost.
Magik leads the team to rescue her, and the team encounters The Hellions–the anti-New Mutant team formed by the Hellfire Club.
Empath, who manipulates emotions.
Catseye, who turns into a cat.
Tarot, who reads tarot cards.
Jetstream, who is basically Cannonball.
A new version of Thunderbird, who is the brother of the original. He will become Warpath later on.
And Roulette, who throws “bad luck discs.”
Yes, several are very similar to the New Mutants team.
Very good story.
