Julio "Rictor" Richter manifested his mutant ability to cause earthquakes, and was kidnapped by Magneto and forced to use his power to destroy San Diego. He was subsequently rescued and brought to the school. Nathan Dayspring, Jean Grey and David Haller used their powers to repel an oncoming tsunami. The strain forced Haller to remove his mental blocks, unleashing his DID personalities, who in turn attack and injured Marie D'Ancato, Lorna Dane, Jean and Nathan. He was subdued by Cain Marko. Shiro Yoshida acquired and and used Kick while repelling one of the smaller waves in San Diego.

Nathan's virus flared up and he had to lobotomise himself to keep it from killing him, rendering him temporarily powerless. Amanda Sefton, Crystal Amaquelin, Clarice Ferguson, Theresa Cassidy and Doug Ramsey volunteered for Red X duty to help with the San Diego cleanup. The rest of the X-Men helped out as well. A week later everyone returned to the mansion. Amanda's mutant power reacted to the devastation and she had to return early.

Jean Grey made the decision to leave to further her training following her reaction to Scott's kidnapping. Ororo Munroe led the team in Scott's trauma-induced absence. Remy LeBeau got news that his leg needed to be amputated, before being healed by Amanda at Charlie's grave-site. He and Lorna met up in France and stop a Guild war at Tante Mattie's behest.

Jay Guthrie left the mansion for Nashville, and Jubilation Lee left for the west coast. Kevin Ford discussed powers out by the fountain with Crystal. Laurie Collins taught Julio about archery. Karolina Dean visited home and was approached by a man who wanted to photograph her for a website. Clarice got her new trainee name, Tinky Winky. Danielle Moonstar manifested one of Marie's nightmares, which Jennie Stavros walked in on. Doug and Marie went on a date. Betsy Braddock came to visit Haller after his break, and was scared off by the personalities in his head.

Nathan took the rest of Elpis to Afghanistan to investigate a slave ring. It was there that they rescued a young mutant girl, Sooraya "Dust" Qadir, and brought her back to the mansion. Kitty Pryde got a job offer at Caltech, and Jamie Madrox encouraged her to take it.

Marius Laverne continued to not cope with his powers issues, fighting with both Jennie and Forge, before leaving. Jennie met up with her father again, and he invited her to come visit him in Europe during the summer break. Crystal visited with her sister, Medusa Amaquelin.
