Four scans from New Mutants #15.

So "Second Coming" is over, and the various series go their separate ways after three months of conjoined bliss.  The New Mutants as a group kind of dropped out of the picture toward the end of it, with Cannonball getting a surprising amount to do in a tie-in miniseries, which also figures into the plot of this issue since it picks up on the Magik/Pixie tensions.

So, this is one of those after-action issues where everybody goes on vacation (foolishly; the only thing worse for a mutant than being at X-Men headquarters is not being at X-Men headquarters).  In this instance, SC was hard on the team (Cannonball initially offers Cyclops his resignation as leader, thinking he did a bad job; Cyclops says no), so Cannonball wants to get everybody rejuvenated.  They fly to a ranch or something in the middle of the desert.  Sunsport wants to know what they're going to do in such a dull-looking spot.

They do, while the villains of the piece, a group of army commandos who got stuck in Limbo for twenty years (Limbo-time) and now have demon-powers, and who want to capture Magik because they think she's a threat, go on the hunt.

But it's a fakeout.  They're actually sneaking up on Pixie, who also left Utopia, to steal her Soul Knife for use against Magik.

Xian, Doug had been inside Legion's mind long, long before you ever were. He was one of the first people to ever get pulled inside in Legion's first story as protagonist.

She's asking a question, not discounting his experience. It has been a few years in-universe.

True, I'd forgotten than Xian was "missing, presumed dead" (whereas she was actually "possessing, presumed fed" by the Shadow King) during the first Legion story, so fair enough on that.
