The mansion saw several new arrivals - William Kaplan and Clinton Barton finally moved in, Illyana Rasputin was handed over by social services by way of the Mutant Underground, and, most spectacularly of all, Namor, Ruler of the lost city of Atlantis, was revived from a cryotube in the care of SWORD during an attempted theft by Susan Storm (at the behest of her estranged mother, Mary. Namor's arrival - and subsequent interactions with various mansion dwellers - were unusual, to say the least.

In the meantime, Topaz continued to not-cope with the new world, while Rachel Kinross-Dayspring had an equally uncomfortable encounter with the "new" Matt Murdock. The discomfort wasn't limited to the Frankenberry Cat people, with Xavin Majesdane totally unable to understand their odd new roommate, Illyana and a computer winding up being thrown out of the window as the result of some misplaced teasing. Quentin Quire continued to be a headache for the Generation X mentors, and Alison Blaire heedlessly got herself into a situation with a rabid fan, to be rescued by Daredevil.

X-Factor, at the behest of a concerned Roxanne Washington, sent a fact-finding team to investigate a sandwich-making fox in Russia, who might be a mutant.

X-Force had their first mission with the new team, tracing a series of Chinese antique thefts to Georges Batroc and a new incarnation of the Mandarin. While they foiled the Mandarin's plans to ascend to godhood, they were unable to prevent him being rejuvenated, and he escaped with the Ten Seals of Qin Shie Huang.

Garrison Kane, moping over his suspension from the FBI with the aid of Cheese Poofs, had his future determined by way of an investigation into a SHIELD data leak which threatened to expose the X-Men to the public. With the help of X-Factor, the leak was traced to the Daily Bugle.

Finally, Hope Abbott caught up with a fellow escapee of the Foundation for Genetic Harmony, CJ Ward.
