In Alaska, Clinton Barton and his team ran into Fixer and his nanites, resulting in mind-control shenanigans and lots of fighting before the apparent death of their foe. Everyone made it safe home, although there were Issues for a few of them, especially Topaz, who had been forced to kill in self-defence. After some focussed hermiting time, she was eventually routed by Tabitha Smith threatening to read Cassie Claire unless her librarian came out of hiding.

Relationship confusion happened - Jean-Paul Beaubier was concerned that an invitation for lunch from Cecilia Reyes was a come-on, and sought advice from his roomie, Kitty Pryde, about Cece's intentions; Artie Maddicks talked to Maya Lincoln-Lopez one night and was disturbed to discover she'd had a crush on the much-older Clint. And Wade Wilson offered Molly Hayes some poutine, which she took to be a sexual innuendo, much to his own confusion.

Sooraya Qadir, still questioning her religion, made the decision to stop wearing her hijab. Hope Abbott, undeterred by her field trip to the morgue, asked Marie-Ange Colbert for more training in the assassin line. Aware of her issues, Jessica Jones decided to stand down as a Generation X mentor.

Garrison Kane, acting on direction from Fred Duncan, took a team to investigate potential human experiments by Roxxon Corporation, and discovered things went much deeper. In the process, Julian Keller was poisoned, and Sharon Friedlander was forced to amputate his hands to prevent him dying, while it turned out that the mysterious Scourge was behind everything once again. With Scourge definitely targeting him, Garrison told Scott Summers he was taking a part-time role with the X-Men until he could be sure they were safe.
