X-Men: Gold

The Sorrow Beneath the Sport

Marvel Girl promises to date the “first one to reach the Danger Room”. This leads to a race among her other four male team mates of the X-Men.

Beast, Iceman and Angel desperately compete to outrun each other, causing a mess along the way. Cyclops is not amused by their antics.

Xavier orders a stop to this by getting a reluctant Cyclops to aim a “blast beam” at his team mates.

Cyclops, who is secretly in love with Marvel Girl, states that his power is too dangerous and he must keep his distance for fear of harming her. Unknown to him, Marvel Girl returns his affections and wishes Cyclops would open up to her.

Cyclops: “My power is far too dangerous! I must never let the girl I love get too close to me!”
Marvel Girl: “I can sense his anguish! I’d move heaven and earth to ease his pain--for only then I would ease mine as well!”

Dreams Brighten

In an illusion, Xavier and Magneto are strolling through the garden in a mutant paradise. They pay their respects to the fallen heroes: Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. They proceed to speak at a public gathering, where Wolverine attacks Magneto. The illusion ends.

Back in the real world, a fight between Magneto and the X-Men resulted in Magneto ripping the adamantium from Wolverine’s skeleton, and Xavier destroying the mind of Magneto.
