After the Genosha incident of the month before, July was much quieter as everyone dealt with what had happened to them. Doug Ramsey pushed himself too far and wound up having a panic attack in front of Amanda Sefton, who insisted he seek help or she would have him benched from X-Force as unfit; he wound up seeing a specialist by the name of Gus Grim. Sooraya Qadir collapsed from exhaustion and lack of eating and was benched from the X-Men while she recovered and Amanda discovered Matt Murdock had been using ecstasy (bought during his illicit trip to New York with Molly Hayes) and he wound up under strict supervision while he detoxed. And Jean Grey discovered, following an argument between the two men, that David Haller had apparently unconsciously wiped Scott Summers' mind of the memory of being told Charles Xavier was Haller's father, an incident that shocked all three of them and required Scott to have psychic therapy to ensure there was nothing else missing.
And in a situation proving nothing really changes, another field trip succumbed to the curse when an outing to Renfair became far more realistic than anticipated when a young mutant girl's powers caused the participants to become their outfits, with only Molly immune and calling backup of the magical kind in the shape of Amanda and Nico Minoru.
There were constructive things also. The traditional 4th of July barbeque took place, with the accompanying baseball game. Angelo Espinosa, following talks with Charles, announced the creation of X-Corps, an initiative which would encompass some of his work for Elpis as well as providing administrative support for HeliX and Red X. The new group would operate out of the mansion, giving Xavier's the chance to be more proactive about the sort of situations that led to the Genosha situation. Layla Miller was discovered to have a form of pre-cog, which explained her ability to know where to fire a gun in Genosha. And there were two more new arrivals: Susan Storm - Phase 1 was rescued, along with her younger brother, by X-Factor from a mad scientist, Arthur Molekevic; while, in a more disturbing situation, a young woman calling herself Rachel Kinross-Dayspring and claiming to be from an alternative dimension where Rachel didn't die in Genosha, was discovered in Madripoor and returned to the mansion, seeking the mutant Xorn in order to save her world.
