Medusa announced her engagement, inviting various members of the mansion and Snow Valley Memorial Center for Mutant Affairs to the engagement party on Attilan. Illyana Rasputin and Amanda Sefton took steps to bury the long-standing issues between them, with Illyana disclosing the truth of what had happened to her in Limbo. Forge and Garrison Kane visited Canada and Forge found himself impressed by the operations of Department H, as well as offered a job. Alex Summers and Shiro Yoshida's relationship took a blow when Shiro caught a transgendered Lorna Dane and Alex kissing, with the rift not being mended for several weeks. Shiro attended Japan for the anniversary of Mariko's death and discovered that upon reaching 20 he had become a very wealthy young man. And Crystal Amaquelin discovered a talent for pranking, when she had Forge's car removed to the barn and covered in peelable decals. Theresa Cassidy finished her finals and went to join Bobby Drake at Cassidy Keep and Lorna went to join a dig after her graduation. Sarah Morlocke and Logan began a relationship.

Barely two days after the chaos of the gender swap, which ended after the prom, Kyle Gibney, Jennie Stavros, Marius Laverne and Crystal were attacked by a group of unknown mutants whilst in the city. Crystal managed to escape, although with a broken leg, but the other three were taken and turned over to Rory Campbell, now completely insane and calling himself Ahab. Using techniques taken from Essex' research for Project Tearaway, her succeeded in splicing the genetic traits of all three onto each other and then had them psychically conditioned, turning them into his Hounds. Investigations by X-Force and the X-Men turned up the connection between Campbell and the mercenaries, one of whom Gorgeous George, was known to Pete Wisdom and who agreed to help the team get the students back. It was a tough mission, with many of those who went in suffering varying degrees of trauma as their former students turned on them, but ultimately a successful one. As a result, the three students decided to take control of their lives and become X-Men trainees. Forge, too, asked for training, in order to make himself less of a liability in his position as adjunct.

As the school slowly began to recover from the upheaval of the students' disappearance, which traumatised many of the residents, Nathan Dayspring discovered that a German politician was causing problems for a mutant-related NGO that had been working cooperatively with Elpis. Death threats against the man and a request from Prime Minister Barath, against whom Wagner had been campaigning, led to the team being asked to protect the Baron from Magnetic North. They successfully neutralized Magnetic North's threat to Wagner's rally, only to discover they faced a greater threat - members of the Brotherhood of Mutants, including a new member, Nimrod. Kurt Sefton, upon taking the Baron to safety, found himself facing his mother, Mystique, who attempted to kill the Baron and revealed that the man was in fact Kurt's father.

Jean Grey and Scott Summers came across a philanthropist Robert Haverford, who initially seemed to be hitting on Jean, but later, when she mentioned she was married, invited the pair to dinner to discuss donations to the school. It turned out to be a set up, with the two X-Men being drugged and interrogated about the Rose, later having no memory of the incident and blaming bad sushi. Nathan had his own mysterious encounter with a woman by the name of Tara Trask at a charity function, when he was left a note written in Askani. He made no mention of the incident to anyone.

At the end of the month, there was an incident involving rampaging monkeys at a fair's petting zoo which did much to relieve the tension. Sam Guthrie won a contest with a travel agent, and invited a group from the mansion to take advantage of the cheap fares and accommodation offered and join him in Las Vegas. Many of the school accepted the offer, with some others making plans for their own vacations and others remaining at home.
