One day at Xavier Mansion, Kitty Pryde receives a letter from Japan with a picture of a dragon and a note saying "Come alone. Bring your dragon." It looks like the start of another adventure for Kitty and Lockheed in Japan. Once in Japan, she's met by a woman from the Department of Supernatural Sciences, who tells her that they had the dragon in the photo but it was stolen by ninjas. After a tour of the facilities, Kitty is briefed about the ninja clan who stole the dragon and is sent to a hotel to rest. Feeling restless, she decides to leave for a little while where she's attacked by a gang. She manages to defeat them with the help of Lockheed, but they were only a diversion. The Path of Destiny only wanted to find if she still had her skills.
