X-Force suffered a blow when an opportunity to take down the remnants of Strucker's organisation turned into a trap. They barely escaped, and not without casualties – Remy LeBeau was captured, sacrificing himself to save Wanda Maximoff, Amanda Sefton and Jubilation Lee. The loss hit the team hard, with renewed fighting breaking out between Marie-Ange Colbert and Jubilee on the journals and left them critically short-handed. One small silver lining was that the fight with Marie-Ange prompted Jubilee to make a decision about her relationship with Doug Ramsey, declaring themselves 'officially' a couple.
X-Factor had a tough assignment of their own, when Crystal Amaquelin brought a potential case to them – the maltreatment of mutant girls in a local brothel. Discovering the previous owner had been forced out, X-Factor enlisted the help of Jubilee and Sarah Morlocke to investigate the new owner, Barry Thistledown. With Jubilee and Laura Kinney undercover in the brothel and Jean-Paul Beaubier and Vanessa Carlysle working with Sarah and Crystal (in disguise), they managed to uncover a mutant smuggling ring and restore the brothel to its previous owner, Madame Libertine. The investigation left its mark, especially on Laura, whose relationship with Kevin Ford changed as a result of the physical and emotional damage she had suffered.
Wade Wilson continued his treatment for his hairy cell leukemia, his illness freaking out Vanessa when he finally told her what was going on and bonding with newcomer Matt Murdock over vomit buckets. Alexander Lexington, following a brief moment with Crystal at his birthday party, asked her out. Warren Worthington found himself fired from his father's business following a fight about his mutancy and decided to return to living in the mansion, moving in with Kyle Gibney.
Ever generous, Warren invited Tabitha Smith on a trip to Europe, with Monet St. Croix and Kurt Sefton joining them. A night of heavy drinking resulted in the potentially damaging news that Warren's one night stand had taken photographs of his wings and planned to sell them to the highest bidder. After a wild goose chase across Europe, they finally tracked the woman to a nightclub in Amsterdam, with Warren and Monet having a brief moment in the spotlight as they had to go on stage to trap their target.
And finally, Artie Maddicks began powers traning with Marie-Ange, and began remembering more of his time with the Morlocks. At the same time, a chance meeting reunited him with Annalee, the Morlock woman who had raised him – and then abandoned him at Xavier's. Despite his sense of betrayal from the incident, Artie decided he wanted to try and help the homeless old woman.
