December 2006 *** February 2007
2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014




2007 marked several new starts and recoveries. The New Year's party at Silver proved hugely successful, especially for HeliX. Kurt Sefton, healed of his ritualistic scarring by Amanda Sefton, threw his scarring knife in the lake, whilst the witch began to deal with the new realities of her healing ability. Ororo Munroe reluctantly returned from Africa at the behest of Scott Summers. Nightcrawler, Legion and Sunfire were reinstated to the X-Men, following their respective absences, whilst Polaris was physically cleared to begin training again. Angelo Espinosa was promoted from trainee to full X-Man, taking the codename "Skin". Nathan Dayspring, Domino and Angelo climbed Mt. Washington in order to mark the anniversary of GW's death. Pietro Maximoff and Scott discussed healing after the former Brotherhood member caught sight of Scott's scars. And Julio Richter and Angelica Jones went on their first date.

Nathan discovered that his disclosure of his telepathic powers was going to make life difficult at the UN. Medusa Amaquelin and Mark Sheppard encountered a scary shoe-throwing fanboy, which resulted in lots of shoes needing a home. Alex Summers and Shiro Yoshida's nascent relationship was outed to Kyle Gibney and Lorna Dane, causing both boys to have their individual wigginses.

The X-Men needed their full component, as it because a busy month for them. The Greek government requested help with a military experiment gone rogue on the island of Youra, which prompted not a few flashbacks for those involved. It was also Dominion's first mission, and his last being partnered with Legion when Jack surfaced and blithely assumed Garrison didn't need telekinetic shielding.

Later that month, Angelo, attending a conference in Moscow on behalf of Elpis, found himself in a hostage situation. Garrison attempted to negotiate with the terrorists, but deliberate mistranslation resulted in the death of one of the hostages and the X-Men were required to storm the building. Angelo - with his friend Samie Kander in tow - provided much in the way of useful intelligence, and proved himself worthy of the X-Men tags he was later given by Nathan.

Sabretooth resurfaced, this time attempting to assassinate his father, politician Graydon Creed. The first attempt was interrupted by a chance meeting with Kyle - Sabretooth's taunts raised doubt in Kyle's mind as to his parentage, and when his mother revealed his father wasn't his genetic parent, he sought out answers, nearly getting himself killed. A security shut down halted the weekly bus trips, lifted only upon Sabretooth's capture as part of a clever sting operation between the Secret Service, the FBI and the X-Men, using profile information provided by Snow Valley's Sofia Mantega-Barret.

The drama wasn't over, however. A field trip led by Haller and Lorna, with Amanda assisting, resulted in mass comas when a telepathic con man by the name of Thomas Glorian inadvertently threw the group into Haller's dream - or nightmare - of a world without mutants. Upon recovering, Forge decided to take a sabbatical on Muir Island, and Crystal Amaquelin and Lorna began to bury the hatchet of animosity.
