In the wake of a battle with London's protective avatars, Amanda went missing for two weeks, rendered amnesiac and confused by her time inside the city of London. Arrested for criminal damage, she was bailed out and returned to New York, still suffering memory lapses and undergoing therapy with Sofia and Emma.

Two new arrivals came to the school - a woman calling herself Morgan Lennox, a mercenary undergoing powers problems and Callisto, former Morlock, who made her presence known when a group of radical underground mutants calling themselves Gene Nation almost brought another Morlock Massacre down on their heads. Sarah became caught up in things, with Ororo and Remy both having to confront elements of their pasts to resolve the situation. Remy also departed New York after this, unable to remain there safely after revealing himself to David Langstrom.

The Prom was the final straw in Kevin and Jay's tumultuous relationship - upon finding out Kevin was taking Cessily, Jay came to the decision he didn't like the person his obsession with Kevin was turning him into, and ended the relationship. Unfortunately, his attempts to remain friends frightened and antagonised Kevin, who was also becoming increasingly fearful of his powers and his urge to use them. His fear resulted in him seeing Jean for a medical solution, at Nathan's suggestion. Manuel and Laurie also had a prom-related drama, with their powers interacting in a way that frightened them both. Tatiana, at least, had the fairy-tale prom, care of an anonymous donation of formal clothes. And on the night before she left to go to school at Berkeley, Lorna and Alex finally acted on their still-lingering feelings for each other. Marie also departed for some time in Canada to visit Logan and try and sort herself out.

Monet became a trainee, Jan quit the X-Men because she was failing school and Marius received his full team tags. And just in time: Christian Kane reappeared, this time with news of a meglomaniac with plans to create a doomsday device. The various teams who tried to intercept the pieces he needed were unsuccessful, and the Enchantress made an appearance to snatch a number of energy projectors for the final part. A last minute rescue and the destruction of the Doom Fortress saved the world, but it was unclear if Baron Zemo and the Masters of Evil had survived or not.
