David, as Betsy, confronts the X-Men. He has already got his father and mother trapped in the background.
I am noticing something though: David has been 'in possession' of Betsy for some time now but Betsy's body has not degraded in any way - the usual after-effect of David's taking over.
Wolverine attempts to ram Betsy with a car but the vehicle is flung off.
Hank too is unsuccessful.
Not only is Hank rebuffed but David plants a poison seed in his head.
This will affect Hank long after the battle.
Storm is blocked.
Cyclops somewhat successful.
Or maybe not, since the only result is that David gets even more pissed.
When Iceman joins the battle he sustains heavy damage and will be hospitalized after this encounter.
With the X-Men unsuccessful, David takes his father around the places the book tour was supposed to go to and starts killing people while Xavier watches helplessly. The casualties run in the thousands.
Betsy Braddock is not entirely lost, she has been fighting for control.
She informs Xavier that she can drop David's defenses for a full minute; at which time the Professor must use his power to kill David. But . . .
Moira, David's own mother, is in agreement with this tactic. Surprisingly, so is David. Yes, David. Is he merely chiding his father knowing that he can't do it? I don't think so. I think David is in a lot of personal pain and part of him wants to die, or rather, in this case, wants to be killed. But Xavier won't do it.
Much as I'd like to, I can't blame the Professor. I can never blame a father for not being able to kill his son.
The matter is resolved by Colossus who slams a car on the David/Betsy hybrid.
Surprisingly, Betsy won't die, she'll wind up in the hospital.
