(X-Men II Annual#3) - Shinobi Shaw introduced Storm -- drugged into an affiliation with Shaw -- to Benedict Kine, Benazir Kaur, and Reeva Payge. When Gambit and Bishop arrived to aid Storm, Reeva sang her high note, distorting their perceptions and leaving them off balance. Gambit through a coin he had charged with kinetic energy, and it exploded as it reached Reeva, leaving her stunned. Storm threw off Shaw's control completely, defeated Shaw, and departed.
