|2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014|
The month started out quietly enough. Spring cleaning happened, and with it came dancing brooms and balloons full of assorted liquid-type things being dropped on Vance's head while he was fixing the roof. Sooraya Qadir continued to adjust to her new status as an X-Men trainee, and Angel moved into the empty room in Lorna Dane's suite. Madelyne Pryor, Sarah Vale, and Layla Miller pranked the boys by leaving a chicken in their suite. Laurie Collins got her MCAT scores back. Jean Grey took a trip for the anniversary of her death. Wade Wilson continued his lessons in delinquency, teaching Maddie how to pick locks.
News broke on the mutate program in Genosha, as well as their apparent slavery of mutants and part of the public response was a rally outside the Genoshan Embassy, which was attended by a group of Xavier's students and staff. The peace was shattered about halfway through when the New Mutants, their teachers, chaperones, and other assorted Xavier's allies were kidnapped from a protest at the Genoshan embassy. The kidnapped group found itself in Genosha, facing what was to some a familiar face - Betsy Braddock, now a magistrate. Xavier met with the Genoshan ambassador, who told the professor that the kidnapped mutants would be returned if Xavier and his people stopped 'interfering' with Genoshan affairs - a response to Xavier's providing refuge to Jenny Ransome and Phillip Moreau. This demand was rejected as first X-Force and X-Factor, then the X-Men invaded Genosha in an attempt to get their people back. The attack went terribly wrong, leading to the capture of many members of the invasion, while those who remained free escaped into the Genoshan wilderness. Several of them came upon a refugee camp, where they managed to hide for a while. The rest began to re-think and re-plan their attack and how to rescue their captured comrades.
Meanwhile, those who were captured were taken the Citadel, where they met President David Moreau and his brother, Thomas, and forced to witness a tragedy before being sent to the prison. In the morning, one group was put on the mutant train to Prenova. While on the train, Ororo Munroe and Jubilation Lee began to work to free themselves and their comrades. Just as they finished, however, the train was blown up by the Genoshan Resistance, led by Jenny Ransome, and the captured mutants were able to escape. The group that was left behind at the prison was put through a series of interrogations as the Genoshans attempted to mentally attack their weakest points. In response to the pressure the captured mutants began to fight amongst themselves.
Back in the US, meetings between the FBI, Secret Service, the CIA, and SHIELD concluded that as far as official channels went, their hands were tied - there was nothing they could do to help the captured Xavierites.
