Two new students - Sarah Vale and Nicholas Gleason - arrived at the achool. Kevin Ford also returned from the West Coast Annex, whle Karolina Dean returned home to her parents and her old school. Manuel de la Rocha and Carmilla Black continued their physical affair, with Tabitha Smith feeling jealous due to her own physical attraction to the empath. Angelica Jones and Julian Keller continued to misunderstand each other, a plan by Manuel to get them talking again backfiring spectacularly. The Pride march turned Clarice Ferguson straight again and got Shiro Yoshida dragged at least partially out of the closet. Jean-Phillipe Colbert took over the bus run from Amanda Sefton and Jay Guthrie continued to struggle with his changed powers and predatory instincts. Catseye decided to change her habit of descriptive names for people after an incident in a restaurant. Jake Gavin and Jean-Paul Beaubier's relationship took a turn for the more serious, something which wigged out Jake.
Jennie Stavros accepted the reality of her pregnancy but lost it before being forced to make a decision. Fred Dukes, seeing his father involved in an FOH rally in his home town, had an explosive burst of temper and smashed the TV, frightening his friends. Cammie learned her recreational bar fighting wasn't always all that fun when she was stabbed in the chest with a broken bottle and had to seek out emergency first aid from Jake Gavin. Kurt Sefton managed to change the mind of one anti-mutant bigot when he returned to the scene of his new 'little sister's' stabbing and found one biker willing to break the mold. Adrienne Frost, continuing her quest to join the HFC's Inner Circle, learned a rather brutal lesson about the price of power from the Black Court's Jason Wyngarde.
Shiro, Amanda and Wanda Maximoff rescued an American mutant from being sacrificed by the Hand, while Amahl Farouk was betrayed by elements within the Alamut to India's president D. Ken Naramani as a source of potentially damaging security leaks and was forced to go on the run from the Imperial Guard. Ultimately he was rescued by Garrison Kane, Kane's father Christian Kane (in drag at one point) and several members of X-Force. Yvette Petrovic nearly died following a landmine accident during a Red X mission in Bosnia, and was saved by a kidney transplant from her biological father, a condemned war criminal. The time she spent on an inhibitor proved both a postive and negative experience.
An Elpis trip for Jean-Paul and Nathan Dayspring ended in disaster as Taygetos attacked, capturing Jean-Paul and causing enough psychic backlash in Nathan to cause him to believe he was twenty years in the past. Both were rescued, but not before Jean-Paul was psionically tortured to the point of a psychotic break and killed every person in the facility where he was being held, before being taken down by the X-Men and returned to the school for treatment. The X-Men faced another dilemma in Brazil, when they discovered that cheap, accessible electricity for developing regions was being produced by a mutant on Kick being used as a generator, with the Reavers (villains) providing security. The plant was destroyed and the boy rescued.
And finally, a vacation in a fully computerised hotel in Dubai turned into something infinitely less relaxing for Forge, Crystal Amaquelin, Kyle Gibney, Doug Ramsey and Laurie Collins when Quentin Quire and Francisco Milan took the opportunity (with a little extra Kick to their powers) for some revenge against their "nemeses".
