Moira MacTaggart arrived at the school due to issues with the British government and her mutant reseach facility. Tabitha 'Meltdown' Smith also arrived, unexpectedly turning up at the front gate. Alison Blaire returned from Mexico to a new job as student counsellor and Sam Guthrie returned from time away spent learning to fly the jet. Nathaniel Essex told Betsy Braddock of his intention to leave the school after her surgery and rehabilitation and Bobby Drake made another visit home in an attempt to reconcile with his family which was slightly more successful. Both Marie D'Ancato and Bobby asked for permission to move into the private suites allocated to grad students and teachers. Pete Wisdom returned to England to investigate Moira's problems and made himself such a nuisance he was eventually fired.

Marie had an extended stay in medlab, recovering from the injuries incurred in John Allerdyce's retrieval and told Moira the whole story - she was found by the military and experimented on before escaping. The powers gained from Stanley - flight, invulnerability and super-strength - proved permanent and took considerable time to get used to. Marie-Ange Colbert started having very vivid, strange dreams. Rahne Sinclair started to learn to take on a transitional shape. Doug Ramsey discovered his mutant ability was to understand and speak any language and was freaked out by it. Sam began training in powers-aided flight with Haroun al-Rashid. After a discussion on the journals, Marie-Ange proposed a mutant powers study group for those powers not covered by the official training classes of Flight, Energy Projection and Psionics.

Alison gave her first public performance since her career was ended by her outing herself as a mutant, marked by the first appearance of the school band. Kitty Pryde's parents visited for a weekend and finally met Jamie Madrox. Moira took a group of students and teachers to Muir Island Research Facility, which raised a number of questions and thoughts about mutancy and people's experiences - this visit, plus a post from Angelo Espinosa sparked a several-day discussion/argument and saw many students revealing their manifestation stories. At this time Scott Summers and Marie returned to Alkali Lake to say goodbye to Jean Grey.

During the Muir field trip, Essex conducted the surgery on Betsy, only for her to fall into a coma. Debate raged among the staff as to the ethics of Essex (and Betsy) not informing the school of what was planned. Essex announced he intended to take Betsy to Fort Dix for a second operation in order to bring her out of the coma but was countermanded by Ororo Munroe and Charles Xavier.

The Muir trip ended sooner than planned with the arrival of Hurricane Isabel on the east coast of the United States. The hurricane made landfall on the New York mainland and the entire school turned out to help in rescue and aid efforts. During the storm a wall collapsed onto one of Jamie's dupes and killed him, sending Jamie into psychic shock. He was significantly traumatised after the event and was unable to use his powers for some time.
