Secrets, Not Long Buried. When Cyclops flies solo to a tiny desert community to see an old friend, his plane is blasted out of the sky. Injured and unable to use his powers, he struggles into town, only to discover his friend is missing. To make matters worse, the town is caught in the grips of a mutant-only, anti-human hate group: the Children of the Shadow. Without his powers, Cyclops is mistaken for a human and The Children of the Shadow hunt him down.
