  • Episode Description
  • Kitty is saved from a rockslide by a mutant girl named Danielle Moonstar. Danielle quickly joins the institute, but immediately causes trouble during a training session when she causes the nightmares of Jean, Kurt, and Kitty to come true. That night, Logan, Professor X, and Storm also have powerful nightmares, worrying Kitty that her new friend will be expelled from the institute. When Kitty wakes up the next morning, Danielle isn't there -- and when she asks, nobody has even heard of her. Kitty is determined to find Danielle Moonstar, and follows a path of strange messages that only she is receiving to her location.moreless

  • I weird one, but Kitty's connection with Moonstar really resonates.

  • A good episode, but a little confusing.

  • Great episode, especially for Shadowcat and Moonstar (Mirage) fans.

    Notes (10)

    • Wolverine's fear: To be in the adamantium experiment again. Storm's fear: Small spaces and being stuck in a small box with no way out. Professer X's fear: The Sentinel assaulting a unexpected on the Mansion and picking him up.

    • Of the 9 main New Mutants from the comics (Mirage, Cannonball, Sunspot, Karma, Wolfsbane, Magma, Magik, Cypher, and Warlock), only Cypher has not appeared in either X-Men cartoon. Mirage (Danielle Moonstar) appeared in this episode, and Sunspot, Magma, Cannonball, and Wolfsbane have been recurring characters. Cannonball and Wolfsbane also appeared in the 1992 series (Cannonball in "Night of the Sentinals", "Repo Man", and "Hidden Agenda", while Wolfsbane appeared in "Cold Comfort" with the rest of X-Factor). Magik (Illyana Rasputin) appeared as a child in "Red Dawn". Karma was seen briefly in "Beyond Good and Evil, Part 2: Promise of Apocalypse", and Warlock met Beast in "The Phalanx Covenant", parts 1 & 2.

    • Dani has the same nationality as Forge.

    • Jean, Kurt, and Kitty are all afraid of their powers going awry. This marks the second appearence of those dinosaur monsters from the "bamf" dimension.

    • Maggie Blue O'Hara, who voices Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat), gets to say part of her name in this episode. When Kitty looks for the Moonstar residence in the phone book, she says it's at 760 Maggie Blue Road.

    Trivia (3)

    • When the rocks fell in front of Kitty, why didn't she just phase through them?

    • After Moonstar walks out of Prof. X's room, and pass Kitty. Her X Pad goes from red X, black background, to black X, red background. But then a few seconds later it goes back to the way it was before.

    • The miles of canyons, cliffs, and desert terrain that we see in this story look nothing like anything we've seen anything near Bayville and the Xavier Institute. Moonstar's grandfather is wearing clothing closer to those worn by Southwest Indian tribes as well.
