TOO MUCH INFOMATION (PART 1 OF 2) David Alleyne, a.k.a. PRODIGY of the New Mutants, can absorb the skills and knowledge of anyone close by —but is doomed to forget everything as soon as they’re gone. So what would happen if he could keep that knowledge instead of forgetting? He’d be the smartest kid in the world, right? Is it too much of a good thing?
Following another mocking from Julian, David believes that he’s useless if he can’t keep the knowledge he absorbs. After a session with Emma Frost, he finds out that a mental block in his mind prevents him from keeping it. He wants it removed. After a discussion with Dani, David decides to go for it. The plan works and, day after day, David absorbs everything he can: from science knowledge to fighting skills. But his attitude too changes, and not in the good way. Meanwhile, Kevin holds another session with Dr. Sean Garrison, who’s interested to learn more about Laurie after Kevin mentions what her powers are. Later, new Field Day contests are held, and this year the New Mutants win! David also gets a trophy for all-around academic excellence. A few hours later, David announces that the school has got nothing more to offer him and leaves. However, he promises to help Josh find the full potential of his powers. Three months pass. In this time, David creates his very own Alleyne Enterprises and gathers a press conference. Proudly, he announces to have found a cure for both cancer and AIDS! And he did that together with Josh Foley, who agreed to serve as test object. But unfortunately, this caused Josh to… die!
