Carmilla Black remained in Genosha after the X-Force operation, in order to gather information on the island nation. Angelica Jones and Gabriel Cohuelo talked about his issues with her dating a "copy" of his previous boyrfriend, Clinton Barton and they managed to sort out their issues. Rogue, by means of absorbing Maya Lincoln-Lopez's powers was able to get an idea of what they were and, more importantly, insight into the girl's PTSD. Illyana Rasputin, confused by the manic Amadeus Cho, went to Gabriel to ask for roofies to calm her fellow student down, convinced from various conversations on the journals that Gabe was a drug dealer. He attempted to set her straight, with mixed results. And the first anniversary of M-Day passed.

The X-Men responded when the Morlocks went to war against the unknown human group who had been abducting and killing them, but were unable to obtain much information as the group preferred death to capture. X-Force began investigating, using the cell phone X-Factor had acquired from the mercenary known as Sabretooth, while the leader of the Morlocks, Callisto attempted to keep things under control.

The mansion's telepaths and empaths were trapped in the dreams of Topaz and Meggan Szardos one night, a result of the lingering psionic damage of the Astral Plane following M-Day. They managed to regroup and escape, but David Haller was unable to cope with his 'failures' during the incident and decided to leave the mansion. His father, Professor Xavier, wasn't fooled and convinced him to stay and deal with his issues, rather than run away again.

Hope Abbott was the victim of industrial espionage, being set up to take the fall for a security breach at Keller Industries, and while X-Factor Investigations attempted to seek out the true culprit, Hope was unable to return to her job.
