The month was welcomed in with a CNN announcement that Genoshans Phillip Moreau and Jenny Ransome were requesting political asylum after their escape from Genosha. During an interview with John King, Phillip revealed some surprising facts about the treatment of mutants in Genosha. The Genoshans stayed at the mansion for a while, until Moira MacTaggart - Phase 1 told Charles Xavier that the two would be able to stay at Muir. While in transit, Jenny and Phillip stayed overnight at a hotel, with Garrison Kane and Theresa Cassidy standing guard, but somehow, the two were kidnapped from their room in the night.
