Sunspot & Magma ran through the New York streets.  They had been told to split up, and they had run into the subway station to escape their pursuers.  As the train pulled into the station, Scalphunter rode on the front of the train and immediately shot Sunspot through the stomach.  Magma powered up, but her attacks missed Scalphunter.  Instead, she was unable to maintain her magma form when Vertigo made her lose her balance.  Scrambler kissed Magma, so when she tried to turn back into her magma form, her powers turned against her and she incinerated herself. The other New Mutants saw the resulting explosion and ran for their lives.  Despite having told Magma & Sunspot to split up, the remaining seven New Mutants were still together.  They realized that it meant their friends were most likely dead.  Magik was the only one who did not take the situation seriously and teleported away just before Sabretooth was able to grab her.  Instead he went to attack the other six New Mutants.  Karma briefly held him at bay, but lost her concentration when Warlock was struck by one of Harpoon's energy spears that was originally intended for Cypher.  With Warlock dead, Wolfsbane transformed into a wolf and attacked Sabretooth.  However, she was no match for him.  Cannonball was forced out of the sky by Vertigo's powers, and Arclight caused a building to topple over the team.  Sabretooth appeared on the rooftop and threw Wolfsbane down to the street.  Mirage screamed as she cradled Wolfsbane's dead body.  She tried to conjure up Scalphunter's worst nightmare or dream, but killing her was his dream.  So he shot her at point blank range. Magneto ended the Danger Room session and was bitterly disappointed with the New Mutants.  His lesson was clear; that they should not have left the school during the Mutant Massacre as they would have been slaughtered by the Marauders.  It wasn't until he'd finished his lecture that he realized Magik was missing.
