One old face resurfaced on the journals - Callie Betto, returned from Brazil and attending college in New York, living on campus there - and one new one appeared, troubled blind student Matt Murdock, sent to Xavier's as his last chance. He had a less than stellar welcome, with Jared Corbo suggesting a hazing and incurring the wrath of everyone in the school, even usual supporter Yvette Petrovic. The incident resulted in a word from Charles Xavier and Jared being asked to move out of the suite he shared with Kyle Gibney. Lorna Dane, still experiencing problems with her powers, left for Muir Island to get a different perspective on the problem and the X-Men had their own encounter with the past, ambushed by an extremely not-dead Lady Deathstrike and three others in Madripoor whilst investigating a lead into the Alpha Flight massacre; the incident resulted in serious injuries for several X-Men.
Powers incidents dominated: Laurie Collins came close to starting an orgy among the grads when her air scrubber broke during a visit from her boyfriend, with several people hooking up and Marius Laverne leaping out of a window to escape an uncomfortable scene with Laura Kinney. Molly Hayes almost crushed herself with a boulder, showing off for Wade Wilson, only to discover that her superstrength was teamed with invulnerability. Artie Maddicks got into a fight at school over his mutancy and was put on probation for threatening the other boy. Kevin Ford continued to experience strangeness with his powers, a potential disaster with Jean-Paul Beaubier averted by his powers shutting off in his sleep. And Wade, following a trip to Germany to get payback on the men who had caged Meggan Szardos as a circus freak, began chemotherapy for his hairy cell leukemia.
On the relationship front, things were complicated, and not just from the aftermath of Laurie's powers accident. Tabitha Smith and Warren Worthington got flirty, as did Janet Van Dyne and Kevin. Kevin's flirting and Wade's sense of humour got them a lecture from Amanda Sefton, protective of Meggan after soem remarks on the journals. Wade and Vanessa Carlysle, after a brief stint of being 'friends with extra', went back to just being friends and Jean-Paul Beaubier and Vanessa got involved in a threesome with William Bower, the two men later establishing a regular relationship.
And finally - Wade gave Molly a baby moose called Daisy.
