The start of the month was marked by recovery from the events of Thirteen Days and a return to normalcy. Various injuries were treated and began to heal, and the students returned from evacuation. Charles met with the President and it was revealed the space laser had been the brain child of a rogue element in the Russian government, since dealt with.

Another old face returned - Jane Doe, at an impasse in her investigations into her origins and stuck for cash, came back to the school to regroup. Bobby Drake decided to remain in Ireland, taking his teaching degree there, and Jonothon Starsmore moved out of the mansion to the hopefully less-stressful environment of an apartment in Salem Center.

Jay Guthrie and Kevin Ford established their relationship, to a mixed responses from Jay's friends. Forge in particular was not enamoured of the idea, or Jay's stating he wanted to become an X-Man. Jay got a less hostile response from Scott when he sought him out to talk about it, but was referred to Charles, much to his reluctance. Laurie Collins and Janet Van Dyne both received their trainee codenames - finally.

Wanda Maximoff, Jennie Stavros and Domino were targeted by a group claiming to be protecting the natural order of things from probability manipulators. They freed themselves and several other captives, but lost their captors in the confusion.

Monet St. Croix continued her rehabilitation, much to her frustration, and asked Amanda Sefton for help in tracing down her elder brother Marius St Croix's background so that she might better understand him.

And finally, Halloween was celebrated a month late, with the Nightmare Before Christmas Party.
