Following a close call with the Destine Clan, X-Force brought a new student to the school, another young magic user (and empath) called Topaz, apparently orphaned during the fight. Later that month, another old face reappeared during a mission in Budapest, somewhat worse for wear; Jennie Stavros reluctantly returned to the mansion, seeking sanctuary from a mysterious foe. Jennifer Walters, a lawyer friend of Warren Worthington, was hired as the Institute's new in-house lawyer.
Adrienne Frost finally freed herself of Jason Wyngarde - Phase 1 and the Black Court with a carefully constructed counter-con, designed to foil his attempt to usurp the Blue Queen of the London branch of the Club, as well as Sebastian Shaw. With the assistance of members of X-Force and the X-Men (namely, those who had previous connection with the HFC), Wyngarde and the Blue King were ruined and their plot exposed and the Black King's power greatly reduced. Following the success of the London plan, Garrison Kane and Adrienne went on a "second first date", culminating in neither being seen the next day.
The New Mutants received a new mentor in the form of Angelica Jones. Tragedy struck Tandy Bowen when her mother and stepfather were murdered; her father, Nathan Tyler, appeared shortly after and abducted her, the former SHIELD agent revealing himself as the killer of her parents. The X-Men, with the help of Garrison's FBI contacts and SHIELD, were able to track Tandy to South America, where she was being used to provide life energy to the demon D'Spayre, under whose thrall Nathan Tyler had fallen. Tandy was rescued, but her father was put into a deep coma by her powers and D'Spayre escaped.
