|May 2011 *** July 2011|
|2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014|
X-Factor, with Amanda Sefton, David Haller and Meggan Szardos combining magic, telepathy and empathy, finally tracked down and detained the Two Strike Killer, although the answers they received from the killer, Caroline Alito did little to help them understand what she'd done. Alito killed herself in police custody. Shortly after, Jean-Paul Beaubier took on a protection detail that required him to travel extensively for several months, perhaps not entirely a coincidence. Vanessa Carlysle also unwittingly attracted some unwanted attention during a routine break-in into a blood bank to get a sample for a paternity case.
Prom went ahead without drama, although Doreen Green 'forgot' it was on and had to be dragged off her World of Warcraft game by Kyle Gibney (with some help from Doug Ramsey and her guildmates). A celebratory brunch was held the next day and organiser, Yvette Petrovic thanked all those involved. Graduation proceeded without a hitch as well, although Parents' Day was the usual case of running around trying to look like a normal school.
X-Force finally caught a break - and received another mysterious tip - in the search for Remy LeBeau, with a trail of dead operatives leading them to set an ambush against HYDRA in London while a second team went to Munich to rescue him. Marie-Ange Colbert, Amanda Sefton and Carmilla Black were successful in killing Swarm, although they only injured the Fenris twins; Ororo Munroe and Jubilation Lee faced down Brock Rumlow and retrieved Remy while Wanda Maximoff, Doug Ramsey and Emma Frost facing down (and being severely beaten by) a new foe, the Red Skull in the sewers while the mysterious Syn killed off rival Lady Hydra in the confusion. Remy had been extensively tortured and after his release he and Ororo went first to Muir Island and then to Beaumont-Les-Bains to recuperate.
Doug and Marie-Ange continued their verbal skirmishes, each unwilling to forgive the other, while Julian Keller continued to mourn the loss of his relationship with Nico Minoru by being a jerk and Artie Maddicks made himself obnoxious in the wake of the abduction of himself and his fellow students by Annalee and their rescue (despite themselves) by the X-Men. Artie's treatment of Molly Hayes on the journals led to a physical fight with his roommate Matt Murdock and Artie coming out the worse for wear. Matt himself learned a new trick in the tunnels - a kind of sonar using his super-hearing.
And with the July 4th holiday weekend approaching, various plans were made to take some time off. Amanda and Nico went to the Cotswolds, to meet with Homily. Laura Kinney and Kevin Ford made a romantic getaway to Niagara falls (among "don't get accidentally married!" jokes), Warren Worthington invited the mansionites to the Hamptons for a long weekend at the beach and Lex took himself off to the wilderness for a break.
