Madelyne wakes up screaming from her nightmare. Scott comes running into the bedroom to console her hysterics.
After Madelyne has calmed down, she tells Scott about the nightmare. She was once a commercial pilot. On her last flight, her 747 flew into a storm and “lost an engine”. The plane crashed in San Francisco and exploded into flames. She was the sole survivor of the crash. While everyone died, she escaped without a scratch. But the screams will forever haunt her.
The date was “September 1st, 1980”. Madelyne describes it as her “personal day of infamy”. Scott remembers it as “the day Jean Grey died”.
