X-Force were treated to a heroes' welcome by the denizens of New Orleans saved from the hurricane and Marie-Ange was magically cured of her bullet wounds.

Nathan got shot at in Khartoum and upset Angelo by not telling him about the trip. Monet fell mysteriously ill, and her disowned full brother Marius St. Croix was ultimately to blame.

The trainees and remaining team were called in to assist in search and rescue, with all of them experiencing rather more than expected.
