The mansion's bad luck continued in spectacular fashion, with most of the student body and some of the staff being taken hostage by members of Selene's cult. The Vegas group found themselves trapped in Murderworld, forced to rely on themselves and each other to survive; Arcade, designer of the deadly 'game', became an unknown ally as he began sabotaging his own game in order to help the younger members of the group. The bus run was also hit, Amanda Sefton, Angelo Espinosa, Danielle Moonstar and several students being taken by Belladonna Boudreaux-LeBeau and exchanged for the stones taken from Nova Roma. Dani and the students escaped, but the stones were handed over in return for Angelo - Amanda, had been removed and taken to Louisiana where Candra, former apprentice of Selene, planned to use her in a ritual to hijack Selene's power. The stones were to be used to raise Selene, a ritual the X-Men disrupted, whilst X-Force stormed Candra's plantation and rescued Amanda, but not before she was rescarred as part of the ritual. Amanda spent most of the month recovering, the incident causing tensions in her relationship with Angelo that they didn't begin to address until Medusa Amaquelin's engagement party on Attilan.
Crystal Amaquelin and Medusa left the mansion, before graduation and Parent's Day, glad to go home.

A new teacher, Amahl "Shadow King" Farouk also arrived, a psi seeking Xavier's help with a mysterious ailment.
Jean Grey and Scott Summers received some 'interesting' news from Doug Ramsey, whose regular sweeps of various security networks uncovered Robert Haverford in the company of Daniel Lyman. The two were eventually stopped in Peru, in the process of stealing various artifacts which Haverford mistakenly believed would grant him super powers. Jean and Scott apprehended them and handed them over to the police, facing several personal demons in the process. Nathan Dayspring continued to try to track down the mysterious Tara Trask, with Wanda Maximoff providing her location as the result of a most unsettling lunch. Finding Nathan had known about the woman and her strange knowledge of Askani for some time, they fought. The next day, Nathan collapsed and it was discovered Trask had been astrally projecting herself into Askani's future. A small team of X-Men discovered a secret from WWII that the Japanese would have preferred remained buried, spurring Shiro to consider methods to make amends for his country's war crimes. Monet St. Croix had a strange encounter with a homeless man during a visit home.
The engagement party of the century - between Medusa and Blackagar Boltagon - had a shocking postscript in the shape of the royal plane crashing and the entire island disappearing, taking Forge with it as well as the Attilani alumni.
