We exited the plane to try and calm Blaze in hopes of assisting her to contain her powers for transportation back to the mansion. Her lack of control over her powers was total, and explosions were ongoing.
Cain's first mission in a second in command role results in tragedy.
Siena Blaze, a young mutant whose power of teleportation caused severe destruction when she used it, was manifesting in the Utah desert and the X-Men were sent to intercept her. When she inadvertently damaged the Blackbird, drastic measures needed to be taken. Cable overexerted himself keeping the jet aloft, leaving Juggernaut as the only X-Man able to approach the girl. Misinterpreting the energy fields around Siena as protective, Juggernaut's blow that was meant to subdue the young girl instead severely injured her, putting her into a coma from which she has not emerged.
As a result of this mission, Juggernaut has made it a point of order that he never be put in another situation where he needs to make field authority decisions.
