Following the disappearance of Attilan, the students and staff of the school spent the following month trying to cope with the apparent deaths of Forge, Crystal Amaquelin and Medusa Amaquelin. Jennie Stavros and Laurie Collins in particular took things hard, with Laurie having several out of character bouts of anger, and Jennie walking to Ploughkeepsie and back. Amanda Sefton and Angelo Espinosa took to the road, finally taking the break they'd talked about and being joined by Doug Ramsey and Marie-Ange Colbert along the way. The burden was eased somewhat when a powers interaction between Illyana Rasputin, Wanda Maximoff and Amanda resulted in Illyana 'porting to the displaced island and discovering the inhabitants were alive and well. On the island itself, time continued to flow at a faster rate, with Medusa marrying Blackagar Boltagon, Forge eventually making contact with the royals and taking a job with the palace and taking on Attilani citizenship whilst Crystal taught at the school founded by the royal family, before being driven by her need to know the truth to seek out her cousin Maximus Boltagon, who had been missing since Attilan was relocated.
An Elpis mission to Africa resulted in a meeting with the king of Wakanda and an encounter with vibranium smugglers, whilst Christian Kane, Garrison Kane's father, enlisted the aid of the X-Men to help him with a situation involving freighters going missing in the China Sea.
Upon discovering that her dog Lili was pregnant by Alex's dog Crush and that Cain Marko was building a kennel to house the mansion's increasing animal population, Lorna Dane moved out into a house in Salem Center. Jamie Madrox's old treehouse was damaged in a storm and the mansion's students and younger grads helped with rebuilding it. The second anniversary of Charlie Plunder's death passed, with Remy LeBeau finally being convinced by Pete Wisdom and Sarah Morlocke not to take out Belladonna, Arcade and anyone else who might pose a threat to the school or the Snow Valley crew. He headed to Africa to repair his relationship with Ororo Munroe, making something of a fool of himself in the process. And the release of the new Harry Potter book ensured things were very quiet for a few days.
