Doreen Green became a trainee with the X-Men, eventually receiving the trainee name "Rocky". Fellow trainee - and friend - Julian Keller went lone wolf, trying to rescue his family from the Lords of War, with the X-Men intervening and ensuring all members of the Keller Family were safe. Julian was suspended from the team for a time, and accepted a grounding as his punishment for his recklessness.
One kidnapping solved, the X-Men found themselves dealing with another almost immediately - Nico Minoru, having gone after Julian with Dori in tow, vanished along with Dori and Crystal Amaquelin from LAX. The culprits were revealed to be Nico's parents, yet again attempting to seize their daughter back for some arcane ritual. An earlier attempt to take her from the mall at the start of the month had been foiled by the presence of Amanda Sefton; using the distraction created by Julian's issues, it was a day before their actions were noticed.
X-Factor continued the search for Nick, despite having found no trace of him. Doug Ramsey, on behalf of Tabitha Smith, gave them a new assignment, tracking down the resources of one Telford Porter, the teleporter who had been Tabitha's "Fagin" when she was a teen, Doug's interest having been piqued by Tabitha's mention of a possible connection with the Black Court.
