September saw Sharon Friedlander settling in at the mansion, plus the arrival of Henry McCoy, scientist and genius. Monet St. Croix returned to Australia, having been forgiven by her father. Charles Xavier and Sooraya Qadir discussed the religious implications of Xorn's actions and Sooraya's issues with her faith; Charles also counselled Kyle Gibney, giving him a job to do in the form of tutoring the students unable to attend Bayville Charter High due to their powers. Maya Lincoln-Lopez continued to be a problem, at one point running off into the woods for a public sulking, and various altercations between the students and the adults on the journals resulted in Charles opening xp_staff to anyone over 18, so the adults had a place of their own to discuss "adult" things.

Maya wasn't the only enfant terrible - Quentin Quire continued to antagonise, first during a training session with Jean Grey (for which he later apologised) and then incurring Wanda Maximoff's wrath by planning a tattoo of Magneto's Auschwitz number. A meeting later with his former teacher (and lover), Tom, resulted in a rapid comedown for the cocky telepath, when Tom accused him of psychically manipulating him into the affair that led to the end of his career. He found some solace in a physical encounter with Gabriel Cohuelo, but he was much subdued after this.

Quentin wasn't Gabriel's only 'encounter', with he and newcomer Jean-Paul Beaubier hooking up casually as well. Alex Summers and Lorna Dane, in California to close up their old apartment, discussed the status of their relationship and the impact of Alex's abduction on it, deciding to restart from fresh and see how things went.

Kevin Sydney found himself with an apprentice, in the form of Gabriel, who asked him for lessons in spycraft. Doug Ramsey continued his tuition of Hope Abbott, this time sending her to a speed dating session to test her people skills and curtail her blush reflex. And Clinton Barton and Jennie Stavros discovered they had several work-type contacts in common, which led to the pair exchanging spy stories.

The Hellfire Club underwent complete restructuring in the face of anti-mutant feeling proving stronger than their influence. And finally, a young political intern by the name of Darcy Lewis found her world turned upside down when she was outed as a mutant as a political ploy.
