Following a powers accident which injured Kevin Ford, Jean-Paul Beaubier abruptly left the mansion, despite Jean Grey's attempts to stop him, leaving a drugged Kevin to wonder on the journals where his boyfriend was. The break-up was short-lived - much to a jealous Yvette Petrovic's chagrin, they reconciled two and a half weeks later.

The mystery of the Untouchables' loss of powers was revealed, as X-Factor investigated a series of missing persons from District X and discovered they were all former 'patients' of the healer calling herself Haven, living without their powers and having normal lives away from New York. All but one - it was discovered that a teenaged boy, Derek Barnes was the 'receptacle' for the removed powers, living a life of physical discomfort in Haven's basement. Haven was handed over to SHIELD by the X-Men and Derek was taken to the mansion, where Jared Corbo accidentally reclaimed his powers by touching Derek. With this news, that they could take their powers back, Kevin, Carmilla Black and Yvette all faced the difficult decision of taking back their mutations from someone who honestly seemed to think he was making their lives better by taking them. In the process of taking their powers back, Cammie and Kevin were injured, Kevin more seriously and once again requiring pain medication, to the amusement of the journal system following his stoned posts. It also appeared there were some side effects to the experience - Cammie retained a more normal sense of taste and Jared retaining some sensation in his fingers.

With their first real case finalised, X-Factor's roster stabilised, with Lucas Bishop officially leaving X-Force to be their 'man on the ground' in District X and Laurie Collins 'traded' to him by Vanessa Carlysle to be his assistant part time. Jean-Paul also started the process of getting a work visa, but ran across issues with Vanessa when a false memory of being assaulted by her 'Daniel' persona caused him to lash out at her when she answered the door in that shape. Vanessa disposed of the mimic and went out with Jean to find a replacement. Jean-Paul also made peace with Jean after their altercation in regards to Kevin and asked her for help with his powers issues.

The search for Nick continued, with Kurt Sefton joining Bobby Drake on his regular trips. The strain of continued failure began to tell on Bobby, who was also having communication issues with his absentee wife Theresa Cassidy; a night of drinking at Harry's Hideaway was neatly sidestepped by a chance meeting with old school friend Amanda Sefton, who gave him some practical advice on his marriage issues. Janet Van Dyne handed over the RA position to Yvette, who eagerly accepted the role and Nico Minoru and Julian Keller chose her study in the library as the spot to progress their relationship, much to Nico's embarrassment later when Tabitha Smith posted a veiled request to not have sex in the library.

Angelo Espinosa proved himself a very good friend indeed when he gave John Allerdyce an old car junkyard to work out his powers issues on after John complained about the urge to blow something up regularly. Amara Aquilla returned from Nova Roma, having enlisted Elpis to assist with those displaced individuals finding their true memories returning finding their families or somewhere else to go. Amara herself was happy to remain in Nova Roma, but the man she had known as her 'father' insisted on her returning to where she could have a more fulfilling life.

Finally, X-Force, still down a member with Marie-Ange Colbert in New Orleans, working for the Assassin's Guild, suffered a further blow when Betsy Braddock took a leave of absence to go assist her twin Brian Braddock with the care of their mentally-ill brother Jamie. Jake Gavin was coerced to return to active duty to fill the gap.
