The mystery of Attilan's disappearance was solved when Crystal Amaquelin tracked down Maximus Boltagon and found him in a hospital, prolonging the coma of the young teleporter who had accidentally shifted the entire island. With Maximus captured, Attilan was returned to the correct dimension, to much relief from the friends and family of the missing. Forge reunited with his parents before returning the mansion, where he experienced the dissonance of having aged two years whilst his friends had remained the same, and Crystal decided a vacation was in order, attending the wedding of Bobby Drake and Theresa Cassidy and later returning to the mansion.

The younger X-Men were called in to perform a break-and-enter at Irene Adler's behest, as the precognitive reappeared with warnings of something terrible being planned by Donald Pierce. It proved to be another of Irene's ploys, as she performed a switch and took the Sentinel blueprints, leaving another of her diaries in its place, much to Marie Marie D'Ancato's frustration. Nathan Dayspring and David Haller found themselves in deep water in Dagestan, as Ilyas Saidullayev made an escape attempt which brought the Russian military down on him. The situation was further complicated when Magneto appeared to recruit the terrorist for his Brotherhood of Mutants. Outpowered after the battle with Saidullayev, Nathan and Haller were knocked unconscious and were unable to prevent Magneto taking the telekinetic with him. Along with the recruitment of Nimrod, it posed a disturbing picture for the X-Men.

Amanda Sefton meanwhile seemed to be reaping the benefits of her increased powers work after the events of Voodoo Child. Things took a worrisome turn, however, when it became clear her powers were boosted beyond what they should be, and various spellbooks had gone missing from Strange's collection. Uncharacteristic powers use during a mission in Arizona in which the X-Force team fought giant Mongolian Death Worms and rumours on the journals only reinforced concerns. It all turned out to be part of an elaborate plan by Margali, trying to 'reclaim' the family's magic by stealing her daughter's body. The spell caught more than intended, however, with Kurt Sefton, Wanda Maximoff and Mark Sheppard also being switched.

Jean Grey and Scott Summers had a pregnancy scare, and Scott's mixed feelings about not becoming parents yet caused some tension. With Cain Marko locked out of the house by Amanda's amplified shielding spell, the kids had a game of indoor Quidditch, resulting in a broken vase and a debate on ethics in the student comm as Yvette Petrovic questioned the morality of blaming someone else - even a dog - for your actions. Terry and Bobby got married, again, this time officially. Nathan and Angelo Espinosa returned to Tel Aviv to celebrate the birth of a new Pack member to Anika and Ian and half the mansion had birthdays. Laurie Collins found herself in a dilemma about contacting her father, Zach Garrison.
