Maya Lincoln-Lopez, in an attempt to build bridges, apologised for upsetting people with her inflammatory journal posts. Unfortunately, her resolution to improve didn't last long, as just over two weeks later, she was in another online brawl with Tandy Bowen. Maya was also surprised when, having asked Sebastian Druid out, he responded by asking her why he should even consider it given how she treated people. Meanwhile, Korvus Rook'shir left the mansion to return to India and seek out his family.

Hank McCoy and Reed Richards bonded over an unexpected topic - their mutual lack of dating skills - and resolved to study the phenomenon and improve. Reed took the first step with an anonymous flower delivery and a science puzzle to Susan Storm, to which she responded with her own scientific code message. Garrison Kane, finding out about [the lead singer of the Tragically HIp having inoperable brain cancer, took out his anger and frustration on the Danger Room in an epic session with the regular safety settings off, which garnered attention from those with access to the video footage. Later, Adrienne Frost tried to comfort her beaten and battered boyfriend.

Miles Morales and Bobby Drake, gave Rahne Sinclair, Amara Aquilla and Monica Rambeau a tour of the city, but the outing was interrupted by three men in animal-themed mech suits attacking the CEO of OsCorp. Spider-Miles sprang into action, but discovered his classmates weren't inclined to sit back and let him do all the work, the teens working together to stop the attack before the SHIELD agents came. Later, having made their exit to avoid arrest, Miles revealed his secret identity as Spider-Man to them, with Bobby considerably upset that his roomie hadn't trusted him earlier and Nica angry at having been treated as a child by her classmate. Miles also announced his alter-ego on the journals, resulting in various reactions, from supportive to concerned.

After Miles informed the X-Men of the incident, they decided to watch Norman Osborn in case Rhino, Beetle and Vulture tried again. Rhino and Beetle did, this time at a gala reception, and the X-Men (and Miles) were there to fight back, protecting Osborn and the guests. This time, however, things went awry when they followed the mechas back to their base, to discover several giant purple robots on the scene, requiring the team to fight both mechas and robots and then make a hasty exit. Due to his skill and cooperation with the team, Miles was promoted to the X-Men.

At the end of the month, having gotten in contact with Maya's grandfather, Amanda Sefton and a reluctant Topaz went on a road trip, returning with a talisman that would help protect Maya against her susceptibility towards possession.
