As the dust settled on New York, it was discovered that Farouk, impatient with Amanda's reluctant tutelage, had struck out on his own and very nearly became a host for an interdimensional entity in Paris. Having rescued Farouk, Amanda and Wanda agreed to give him the guided tour of the occult network in order to satisfy his curiosity safely. Laurie began the task of rebuilding bridges she'd damaged during the fight with Kyle and Kyle began recruiting help with his new groundskeeper job. Jean-Paul Beaubier returned to the school to teach.

Everything came to a shocking halt, however, when Pete, Kane, Jay and Dani were ambushed on the way to New York by Sabretooth and some other unknown mutants, believed to the Brotherhood. The incident threw X-Force and the X-Men into action, seeking out the Brotherhood.

On the hells of this incident, Tanya Callery passed on information that a Taygetos courier was to attend a Hellfire Club function regarding the information taken by John Lense from the Alaskan facility. Nathan arranged to attend as Emma's consort, with Adrienne and Manuel providing backup. The data was obtained and decrytped, leading to Wakanda, and a team was sent to try and prevent what seemed to be another assassination attempt on T'Challa.
