May was weirdly busy. And busily weird. The blood bank attacks continued among increasing controversy over the ban of mutant donors, with debate ongoing about the ethics of the ban plus plans being suggested to host a "mutants-only" blood drive in District X. The ACLU also got involved, announcing they would be representing a rejected mutant donor in a discrimination suit. A teleporting accident landed a random group of mansionites in Limbo with Illyana Rasputin doing her best to keep them alive and make it to a power source untainted by the demon realm - her mentor's garden. During the several days they were gone, Warren Worthington stormed off from the group and had sex with someone who looked like Felicia Hardy, Topaz drained Gabriel Cohuelo's emotions without permission and Miles Morales found a giant sword, which turned out to be handy in defeating the demon protecting the garden, Carnage. After killing Carnage (twice), Illyana managed to teleport them home, draining the garden of the last of its power. They came back largely safe and sound, although Rahne Sinclair had a hair crisis involving Carnage-blobs and a pair of scissors. Marie-Ange Colbert and Felicia came to the rescue. Topaz was read the riot act by Scott Summers for her powers abuse while Gabriel needed some days to recover. Amadeus Cho, having displayed some disturbing behaviour in Limbo, went to Muir Island for testing and treatment.

The dust had barely settled on that adventure when Generation X found themselves caught up in another - a rogue bear-spirit terrorizing Bayville Charter High as the result of a Native American artefact being unleashed. The students were rescued by the elder contingent of the team, and everyone was able to defeat the bear and escape, although Monica Rambeau was less than impressed about her birthday outing. Clinton Barton suggested uniforms to his unnamed group of people and got a rather negative reaction from Kyle Gibney and Topaz, which had him hastily retracting the suggestion. It was also around this time that Jennie Stavros left the mansion, concerned about The Disciples and the safety of residents.

Xavin Majesdane joined the X-Men as a trainee, adding to their ranks, while Jean Grey retired the name "Marvel Girl" and requested suggestions for something new. Wanda Maximoff did her own recruiting, luring Natasha Romanoff to X-Force with the power of donuts.

Quentin Quire's frustration over the loss of his telepathy and a frustrating case spiralled into a night of disaster when he decided to try Rave as a way to kick-start things. His high impacted Jean Grey via their link, and she abandoned her post at the hospital to proposition Warren Worthington. Warren, thinking he was doing what he was supposed to, texted Barbara Morse to let her know he was thinking of sleeping with Jean, unaware she was on Bobbi's "don't go there" list of hookups for Warren due to their earlier relationship. Bobbi stormed off and left New York, refusing to answer texts or calls. Meanwhile, Quentin decided to deal with his case by threatening the individual involved (only to be stopped by Jean), which resulted in Warren and Lorna Dane having to take drastic steps to avoid losing the agency's licence. A still-hostile Quentin expected to be fired, but was humbled to realise that he was part of a team that wanted to help him, not toss him aside.

In the midst of this drama, Miles and Bobby Drake had their first date, after some soul-searching about their preferences. It went well enough for them to want a second date. Quentin also made his peace with Gabriel, after considerable time and being an asshat.

Finally, a plan by General Thaddeus Ross to frame The Hulk and set himself up as saving New York from his rampage went terribly and horribly (and perhaps inevitably) awry when the fiery android he was to use to defeat the Hulk went rogue, destroying large swathes of the city. The X-Men paired up with SHIELD and the Avengers in an effort to shut the threat down, while Generation X and various mansion volunteers were deployed to help with rescue and damage control. The android was contained and General Ross arrested for treason - he later escaped from the ambulance taking him to hospital and accepted an offer he couldn't really refuse, given his circumstances..
