Hellnight took place on Halloween night, 1996. It was when the last of the shreds of normalcy surrounding the world failed, and in that brief flash, powers flared across the globe.
Mutants were suddenly dealing with their powers full strength, causing more than a few deaths and leaving great swaths of devastation. People who had no clue they were capable of Magick suddenly found wishes being fulfilled. Psionics flared in people who were totally unprepared for the Psychokinesis, teleportation, and telepathy they were now capable of.
No one incident has shaped the modern world more than Hellnight, and it’s reverberations are still felt by anyone who went through it.
