|February 2012 *** April 2012|
|2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014|
The month began quietly, all things considered. Jean Grey and Adrienne Frost planned a bad movie screening night to help people unwind, Lorna Dane planned a St. Patrick's Day party complete with food, and David North and Wade Wilson headed to Minnesota to blow up a shack. Jean-Phillipe Colbert was promoted to full X-Man status. The relationship between Kurt Wagner and Monet St. Croix ended in a rather loud way, and Monet told her father she would accept his offer for an internship, and emailed the Elpis staff to tell them she would be leaving for Sydney for the next few months.
After her latest run in with Sayyid, Sooraya Qadir, while talking with Yvette Petrovic, began to consider joining the X-Men. She later received an email from Sayyid, who had escaped from prison; she passed the email on to Garrison Kane and Angelo Espinosa, and a furious Angelo passed it along to Doug Ramsey.
Vance Astrovik arrived at the school, having finally taken up the Professor on the offer he had made months earlier, after Vance's release from prison, to finish his college education while living at the mansion. Angelica Jones emailed Yvette to let her know she was intending to stay in England through next school year, then returned to the mansion two weeks later when she accidentally revealed to her roommate that she was a mutant.
Much to the disgust of Garrison, the FBI all but shut down the investigation into the disappearance of Phillip Moreau and Jenny Ransome. He, Abigail Brand, and Theresa Cassidy discovered another missing teen case and decided to check it out. The teen turned out to be a mutant, and discovered that the case had many similarities to the Moreau and Ransome case. A little more digging revealed six more cases with similiar MOs - in four of the cases, the victims were identified mutants. Terry reached out to an Interpol contact, who told her about an on-going investigation involving Christu Bulat, who was suspected of kidnapping girls for underground clubs and brothels. Kane passed this information along to X-Force, who managed to take down Bulat in the midst of a deal. Bulat informed them that there was a 'buyer' who gave him a high commission for delivering young, strong mutants, but he wouldn't tell them who the buyer was.
When Bulat's lead didn't get them as far as they would have liked, the X-Men set a trap in order to lure out who had been kidnapping young mutants. They used some of the younger members of the X-Men (Yvette, Doreen Green, and Laurie Collins, with Jean-Phillipe acting as the seller), they used Bulat's line of communication to inform the buyer that they have new mutants. When a group of soldiers showed up to collect the "captives," the X-Men moved in for the attack, and a fight ensued. It turned out the soldiers were hired guns. Outside, Sam Guthrie, Kyle Gibney, and SHIELD arrested a nearby man and woman - the man was identified by one of the arrested mercenaries as the one who had hired them. Before the man and woman could be interrogated, however, their "lawyer" - who was actually a mutant in disguise - showed up and, under the guise of speaking with his "clients," teleported the man and woman away and out of custody.
