|Plot Synopsis: X-Men (1991) #135|
"Teaching Children About Fractals," part one of Riot at Xavier's, is written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Frank Quitely and Tim Townsend. Are the X-Men witnessing the birth of a super-villain in their midst? Strange and wonderful are the mutant children who have flocked to Professor X's School for Gifted Youngsters. This issue focuses on two groups of teen mutants. The first group, the Special Class, is taught by the mysterious Xorn and is learning to appreciate Xavier's dream of peaceful co-existence with homo sapiens.
On the other hand, the Omega Gang, headed by Quentin Quire, an Omega-level telepath, seeks to carve out a world where mutants can be safe from humans by intimidating them into subservience. Quentin, the self-dubbed Kid Omega, seeks to provoke a strong reaction among humans and other mutants. He adopts the style of hair and dress of a cartoonist's rendering of an evil mutant and so does his gang--Glob Herman, Radian, Redneck and Tattoo. Hopped up on Kick, a street drug that enhances their powers, the gang takes on a group of mutant-hating humans who killed the flamboyant mutant designer Jumbo Carnation. Which philosophy will win the day and determine the future of mutant-human relations?
