All three buses took the children from the Mansion of the Xavier Institute at approximately 6:35 am eastern standard time. Xavier then heads to the sub-basement levels using his secret elevator connected to his office. After meeting briefly with Beast and Forge, Xavier remains in the war room monitoring the events of day via X-satellite remote viewing. Beast accompanies him along with Logan. The children's busses reach the local Jets stadium and they file off the bus to find their seats alongside Storm, and Scott Summers. There is one more chaperone, but for now their identity is not known.
A small crowd begins to gather near the gates of Xavier's Institute for Gifted Youngsters.
