An investigation into the Sapien League revealed unexpected ties with a case Kevin Sydney had worked on in the 1950s, resulting in Kevin's apparent death, a psychic journey into the fragments of his mind by Emma Frost and a number of the X-Force women while the remaining group tracked down the location of HELIOS from the information Emma's team provided. HELIOS turned out to be a nuclear weapon buried in the heart of New York during Russian spies in the 1950s, with the Sapien League planning to set it off to start a race war with mutants. The villains were defeated and the bomb disarmed, but Kevin himself vanished from medlab, unable to handle the reality of his 'default' state which was very much like a grey alien. Nina Thurman and Gabriel Cohuelo especially were upset by his apparent desertion.
A lull in attacks on blood banks made some of the X-Men a little suspicious, although others welcomed the break. Hope Abbott continued her personal quest to find Rudolph von Habsburg and his group, responsible for her abduction and indoctrination; to this end she journeyed to Ksavia to make a deal with the country's new Archduchess in return for intelligence the country had gathered on their traitor. Sooraya Qadir and Angelo Espinosa shared information and concerns about the welfare of mutants in countries with poor human rights records and Tandy Bowen was gratified by the success of her District X food bank.
Topaz continued to act oddly, abandoning her post at the library without warning and going off by herself, much to the worry of Amanda Sefton and Kurt Sefton who had appointed themselves her guardians at this time. Everett Thomas was forced to examine his feelings for long-time friend Wanda Maximoff after walking in on her and Clinton Barton enjoying the 'morning after' - citing a lead into the death of his SHIELD team, Ev left the mansion soon afterwards. Jean-Paul Beaubier sent Topaz messages and pictures as signs of life, and Miles Morales and Bobby Drake had an awkward moment whilst making out.
Finally, as an indication of general displeasure with the way the US was behaving politically, Monica Rambeau suggested celebrating Canada Day on July 1, rather than the traditional Fourth of July.
