Psylocke tells Storm about an e-mail she received from Puck warning about a drug dealer selling TAO, a drug that makes people susceptible to a hive mind mentality.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Ororo is a potential omega level mutant. One of the primary sources of her powers is the Earth's electromagnetic field.
