Director : Graeme Campbell
Writing credits : Brad Falchuk
Cast : Anthony Lemke (Charles Marlowe)

7 - Lit Fuse

Original title : Lit Fuse
First Aired : 17.11.2001 (USA) 01.01.2003 (FRANCE)
Director : John Bell
Writing credits : Elizabeth Keyishian & David L. Newman From a Story by Tom Fudge
Cast : Mark Lutz (Eric Tanner), Moya O'Connell (Ashley Elliott), Gordon Currie (Neil Cross)

The Story : Ashley and her boyfriend Eric are on the runner from a bounty hunter, Cross. Ashley is an "elemental" who absorbs energy: in this case, electrical. She escapes although Eric is captured. Mutant X detects the power outage and goes after her. She goes to recover Eric from Cross, who has made a deal with Eckhart to capture her. Eckhart tries to double-cross Cross, and Mutant X grab Ashley, although Eric remains a prisoner of Cross. Back at Sanctuary, Ashley and Brennan are electromagnetically "attracted" to each other, and the group figures out that Eric is in cahoots with Cross to get hold of Ashley. Ashley literally absorbs Brennan, making herself potentially very dangerous and liable to explode the next time she draws energy. Cross shoots Eric once he has succeeded in luring Ashley back in, cuts a new deal with Eckhart, then goes to charge up Ashley at a power plant. The team manages to interfere, restoring Brennan to physical corporeality, and they get away with Ashley, who goes into the Mutant Underground.

8 - In the Presence of Mine Enemies

Original title : In the Presence of Mine Enemies
First Aired : 24.11.2001 (USA) 03.01.2003 (FRANCE)
Director : John Bell
Writing credits : Howard Chaykin
Cast : Reagan Pasternak (Toni Quintana), Joy Tanner (Kendra Makovoy)

The Story : Jesse is in love with Toni, a computer hacker and new mutant. Eckhart, concerned about the fact that Proxy Blue knows about him, wants the virtual newscaster silenced. He employs Kendra, who gets close to Toni and then kidnaps her and puts her to work for Genomex duplicating Proxy Blue with Eckhart's message. Toni slipped a virus into Sanctuary's computers, mostly out of curiosity and the challenge. However, Genomex may be able to trace Sanctuary through her equipment: the computers may or may not have been fried by a stray blast from Brennan. Mutant X has never been able to penetrate Genomex in simulations. Toni manages to slip out the weakness in Genomex's defenses via one of her fake Proxy transmissions, and the team manages to rescue her and leave Eckhart's computers crippled. Toni joins the underground as a wandering troubleshooter, although she and Jesse still plan to get together.

Director : Jon Cassar
Writing credits : Philip Lazebnik
Cast : Andrew Gillies (Dr. Harrison), Anne Openshaw (Angel Dorn), Ralf Moeller (Lt. Beau Longstreet)

The Story : Shalimar intercepts three ferals trying to blow up Biocorp. She stops their mission but they escape, one of them seemingly ill. Mutant X identifies them through a tattoo: they are members of Dark Star, an internatinal anti-terrorist unit. The gang tracks them down - the ill man is now dead, and the other two have no idea what a "new mutant" is. They were sent to Bogata on a mission for Biocorp, which turned out to be an experiment by Eckhart involving a rare plant that causes people to become new mutations. The two soldiers, Beau and Angel, are the last mutated survivors: the rest died, and even Angel is slowly dying as well. Eckhart needs a living subject to complete the experiment. While Adam races to save Angel, Beau and Shalimar break into Biocorp to capture a plant sample. Jesse escapes with it, but the other two are captured and taken to Genomex. Shalimar breaks free and helps Beau to escape, Adam manages to come up with a cure, and Brennan destroys the remaining plant samples at Biocorp.

Director : Jon Cassar
Writing credits : Darrell Fetty
Cast : Joanne Vannicola (Maddie Conlan), Andrew Gillies (Dr. Kenneth Harrison)

The Story : Maddie Conlen, an old New Mutant friend of Brennan's with minimal power, lures him and a tagalong Emma into a trap set by GSA agents. Maddie displays a vast increase in power, and her new "pulse" interacts with Brennan's lightning blast, somehow splitting Emma into two separate entities. Unaware of the split, Brennan escapes with one of the Emma's, who soon proves to be somewhat of a worrywart, acting hesitant and unsure. Meanwhile, the other Emma is taken in by the GSA agents, and she quickly negotiates a deal with Eckhart to betray Mutant X and bring him Conlen, whom Genomex had genetically augmented as part of an experiment. She does so, but then reveals it's all of a ruse: she plans on bringing down Eckhart from the inside. Adam concludes that if the two Emmas are not reunited, they'll both die, but the ruthless Emma doesn't care. She frees Maddie and two try to put Genomex into a stasis field (which would kill the currently imprisoned New Mutants). The rest of Mutant X manages to thwart her and take her into captivity, where they reunite the two Emmas when Maddie and Brennan recreate the power pulse that split her. Maddie, who was forced to trap Brennan because her mutancy required surgery so she could stay alive, goes into the underground.

Director : Andrew Potter
Writing credits : Elizabeth Keyishian
Cast : Emily Hampshire (Charlotte Cooke), Joseph Scoren (Lynch), Rob Stefaniuk (Skeet Vossberg)

The Story : Charlotte Cooke is a New Mutant with the ability to infect people by touch with a toxin that reverses their "moral compass". The effect only lasts on New Mutants for about a minute, but on normals the affect seems to be permanent. She is also the daughter of an old friend of Adam's who sold secrets, and Adam was forced to expose to the authorities. Charlotte and her friend Steve are on the run when the GSA tries to capture them. Steve (a minor league new mutant), is captured but Mutant X rescues Charlotte. She wants to join up, but when they turn her down she "infects" Shalimar and Jesse and uses the distraction to escape. With Steve's help, Eckhart's enforcer Lynch captures her and they convince her to help them against her father's betrayer. She agrees and infects Adam, turning him evil. He knocks out Emma and imprisons the others in a force field impervious to their powers, then knocks out Eckhart and frees Charlotte for his own nefarious purposes. The team manages to escape and confront him. He knows all of their weaknesses, taking down Brennan with a water hose and Jesse when he has to breathe and turn off his density powers. Adam is ready to kill Shalimar when Emma talks him out of it long enough for a repentant Charlotte (whom Eckhart has told he was responsible for her father's betrayal), to give him a new dose of her toxin and reverse the effects of the original dose.

Writing credits : Mark Amato
Cast : Andrew Gillies (Dr. Kenneth Harrison), Larissa Laskin (Pamela Fries), Andrew Martin (Caleb Mathias)

The Story : Emma and Brennan are bar-hopping when Emma meets up with an attractive man, Caleb Mathias. He takes her out back and proceeds to suck the life-energy out of her, a process that Brennan interrupts. Caleb flees. Eckhart assigns his newest New Mutant agent, Pamela Fries (an Elemental who can alter her body temperature and the surroundings), to go after Caleb, who they've determined is connected to the serial killings of several other young, female New Mutants. Mutant X goes back to the bar and confront Caleb, who is hit by a GSA car driven by Pamela. She is apparently in cahoots with Caleb and rescues him from the morgue, where he walks out under his own power. It turns out Caleb is a "vampire", and can resurrect himself from the energies he takes from young female New Mutants. Apparently psychically bonded to him, Emma returns to the bar yet again, and is captured along with Pamela. Pamela is able to escape her chains with an empathic boost from Emma, but is energy-drained and killed by Caleb. Caleb then drain-kills Emma as well! Adam figures out that Caleb may be permanently killed if he is killed a second time after his resurrection, before he has a chance to feed. Shalimar goes to the club and "kills" Caleb, who gets up only to be electrocuted and permanently killed by Brennan. With Caleb's death, the life force of his last two victims is restored and Emma and Pamela wake up.
