In the wake of his father's arrest for fraud and funding terrorism, Julian Keller returned to New York and made contact with the mansion again, welcomed by old friends and making new ones. He also became a mentor to the New Mutants, along with Angelica Jones, and set about introducing himself to the new generation of students. He hadn't changed much, and soon the tabloids were going crazy about the latest celebrity relationship, "Bowler" - Tandy Bowen and Julian Keller.
There were also two other arrivals to the mansion - Miles Morales, a New York teenager vigilante, calling himself Spider-Man after his favourite movie hero. He was rescued by Laurie Collins and Kyle Gibney when his attempt to solve a mutant murder went awry and made him the killer's next target. The other was Gabriel Cohuelo, who stole from the wrong people and also found himself in need of rescue and then refuge at the mansion. At the same time, Marius Laverne, dealing with the aftermath of taking on the Fury's powers, left for Muir Island for a time.
Another result of the Fury mission was that Scott Summers, in possession of two eyes again following Marius' rebuilding of his face, discovered he had lost the control won when he'd lost one eye on a mission. Jessica Jones and Rogue became training buddies, their powers complementing each other nicely and Rogue's experience helping her protegee greatly.
