The New Mutants
Daniel “Dani” Moonstar, a young Cheyenne Native American, is hidden in a tree by her father. At the same time, her entire reservation is devastated by a tornado, leaving her as the sole survivor. After passing out, Dani wakes up in a strangely empty hospital run by Dr Cecilia Reyes. The latter consoles her and explains that she is no ordinary human but has unique mutant DNA, advising her to stay in that hospital until you find one outside. Effects and also how to manage them.
Dani meets four other teenagers; Samuel “Sam” Guthrie, Illyana Rasputin, Roberto “Bobby” da Costa and also Ran Sinclair. Reyes took each of them to the hospital after each survived or accidentally caused a tragedy; Sam brought down an entire coal mine on his father and his colleagues, killing them all, Roberto accidentally burned his girlfriend to death, Rahne escaped her devout Catholic town by killing a priest after he branded her a witch, and Illyana was enslaved and also sexually abused.
Violence. Like a child. They all also have superhuman powers due to mutations in their DNA; Roberto can manipulate solar energy, Sam can fly as fast as a jet, Illyana has the capability of interdimensional sorcery, and also Rahne’s lycanthropy allows her to transform into a wolf. Reyes this woman is also a powerful mutant who can manipulate “plasma energy” force fields, preventing the five from leaving the facility.
He then plans to kill himself from the church’s clock tower, but Rahne stops him. They become romantically involved, but on the other hand, Illyana is confronted by Dani, who discovers that Illyana has a purple dragon puppet named Lockheed. Reyes consults with his employers, the Essex Corporation, who give him instructions to collect Dani’s DNA and then put her to sleep. The entire group soon begins to have horrific real-life visions of their past tragedies, one of which has Rahne branded around the neck by the same priest she had beforehand killed. Both Illyana too Reyes deduce that the visions result from Dany’s powers manifesting; For example, the ability to physically manifest fears, desires, or other thoughts from a person’s mind into reality in the form of tangible illusions.
