Jean-Phillipe "Bevatron" Colbert, cousin to Marie-Ange, arrived at the mansion for powers help, coinciding with the school trip to Japan. The Field Trip Curse reared its head again, with Julio forced to rechannel a major earthquake through himself to avoid a disaster. The effort nearly killed him, with Laurie and Nori reviving him. During this time the possibility Logan was Nori's great-grandfather was raised, leading to a DNA comparison. Jay and Kevin's relationship continued its rocky way, and both Shiro and Farouk were ill over a prolonged time. Unfortunately, Shiro's illness turned out to be withdrawals from Alex's powers, as the two had a rather ugly scene which ended with Alex leaving the school to go stay with Lorna for a time, and the relationship ending.

In response to her own near-death experience, Wanda decided to start living more, sleeping with Cain, dragging Kurt out with her dancing and being to a dance contest.

Angelo, going through Irene Adler's diaries, uncovered a prophecy that convinced him he was going to be crucified, and no-one was able to reassure him otherwise. Nathan and Ororo rescued the visiting T'Challa from an assassination attempt by an escaped William Moses.
Doug and Forge got involved in an adventure, tracing the last invention of Nicola Tesla in a race against Fabian Cortez and Francisco Milan, who believed it would be a weapon they could use to curry favour with Magneto. Instead, the group discovered it was a 'copy' of Tesla's personality, and in the ensuing fight, Forge suffered almost-terminal powers overload, with Tesla sacrificing himself to revive him. In the aftermath, Forge began to realise that learning some kind of fighting skills was an inevitability, if he didn't want to continue being a victim.
