This brave young lady had no idea of her becoming an important member of the superhero mutant adventurer team X-Men and also being worshiped as a goddess of nature who manipulates weather by people in the upcoming future. Meanwhile, a mysterious persona came to Egypt, looking for some rare ancient artifact pieces for the reasons unknown.

Called by the name of Barrett, he comes to the city of Cairo, looking to hire the best thieves of Cairo, which leads him to meet Achmed el-Gibar, who happens to be the teacher as well as leader of the thieves. Barrett wants to hire the services of his thieves to steal an artifact which is a powerful gem located inside of a pyramid and is surrounded by various death traps and puzzles.

Achmed el-Gibar refused at first seeing the risk on his kids but later accepts for a greater price. Unknown danger waits for Ororo Munroe and her friends in their quest that would change their lives forever. As they advances inside the pyramid, she even witnesses the tomb of the eternal mutant En Sabah Nur, also encountering his servant Ozymandias, who prophecies on her upcoming bright future.
