|July 2011 *** September 2011|
|2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014|
August was marked by a number of returns. Amelia Voght was brought back from the astral plane following her 'death'; Wade Wilson and Sam Guthrie both returned from Muir Island and their respective sabbaticals; Adrienne Frost swallowed her pride and asked for help, which led to a team mission to rescue Garrison Kane and a number of federal agents from a burning pharmaceuticals factory; and Fred Dukes was convinced by good friends Julian Keller and Yvette Petrovic to give the mansion another chance, despite the weirdness of his former girlfriend, Callie Betto, having returned without notice. Kevin Ford, on the other hand, left for his home state of Georgia, relishing his freedom to travel after the expiry of his parole at last.
As well as Fred and Callie, Garrison and Adrienne found it difficult to reconcile her sudden departure. Kyle Gibney and Doreen Green started dating, despite her best friend Julian's attempts to bribe Kyle not to as a form of 'test', and Sarah Vale very shyly asked Callie to go to a movie, albeit under the influence of happy vibes from Yvette's birthday party which became the testing ground for a new form of Kick by Toad and his cohort, Mister M. A powers interaction between Laurie Collins and Megan Gwynn resulted in a lot of very happy (and stoned) party-goers, including Toad himself, who lost his gas mask after a hug from Yvette.
A joking conversation resulted in a scare that Wade might be Kyle's biological dad when it was discovered he'd been at the right place at the right time. Artie Maddicks decided to search for his biological family also, with Amanda Sefton volunteering to help him out, free of charge. The search for Vanessa Carlysle continued, with both Wade and Adrienne distressed to discover she was missing and Jean Grey getting involved in assisting as well. The pressure also began to be too much for Warren Worthington, with him becoming short-tempered and curt on the journals.
Amahl Farouk also went missing, although his absence wasn't noted immediately due to his increasing paranoia. Wanda Maximoff, along with Amanda and Garrison, began another bizarre goose chase, this time arriving too late and Farouk being taken by the mysterious Ozymandias for purposes unknown. X-Force barely had time to recover from that blow when the Exemplars resurfaced, this time seeking protection from the Chthon cult and its mysterious leader, in possession of a ring called The Destroyer. The incident resulted in serious injuries for Wanda and Amanda, and the destruction of the ring, as well as the escape of their mysterious enemy.
Finally, another lead into the deaths of the Alpha Flight team was turned up, this time leading to Hong Kong and a mixed group of X-Men, X-Force, a Morlock, a SHIELD agent and Christian Kane's investigative agency, Knightwing Restorations.
