August began with the departure of Dr. Stephen Strange from both the university and his job as Amanda’s tutor. The X-Men travelled to Rio to rescue a group of mutant students held hostage in a school by a local terrorist group. They anxiously returned in time for Moira MacTaggart to give birth to her and Nathan Dayspring's daughter, Rachel Kinross. They were quickly joined by Nate’s friends from the Pack to offer their congratulations for the new baby.

With the help of Forge and Kylun, Catseye's birth family was discovered, but she avoided meeting with them immediately. Nathan ended up discovering at a lunch meeting with his father Saul that he had an uncle Gideon, who had been behind his service in Mistra. With the help of the Pack, he began to investigate his uncle’s holdings. The Box returned to operation.

During preparations to leave for Hawaii, Lorna Dane finally revealed to her mother that she suffered from anorexia. Meanwhile, a mission to rescue a mutant named Siena Blaze nearly ended in a plane crash.

Out at LAX, Lorna was waylaid by the Brotherhood of Mutants, who forced her to come with them after deceiving Alex Summers of her reasons. They affixed a collar of unknown power to her throat, allowing the disembodied personality of Malice within to seize control of her mind. The X-Men stopped a mutant serial killer in Europe at the same time Betsy Braddock discovered her eldest brother had been deemed permanently mentally incompetent and her brother Brian Braddock had inherited the family estate.

Soon after, a short series of events plagued the mansion, including a fight with FOH members and some of the students at a town fair, the breaking of Amanda Sefton's amulet, and further complications with Nate's uncle. However, there were positives as Scott Summers and Jean Grey announced their re-engagement and Bobby Drake and Theresa Cassidy got together.

It didn't last, as a young FOH member and newly outed mutant Tommy "Elixir" Jones was found nearly beaten to death outside the gates, and Amanda made a devil's bargain with Selene to learn to control her magic addiction, following an accidental draining of Meggan. A former operative in Europe suddenly became active again.
