Recouping and recovery were the big themes for February - Forge went to Muir Island Research Facility to regroup after the dreamworld incident, Cain Marko went travelling around the world as part of a dying wish from the housekeeper who had raised him and Charles Xavier, and Garrison Kane began to recover from the emotional blows incurred during his first few X-Men missions. Alex Summers and Shiro Yoshida found they had to deal with their new relationship a little sooner than expected when a text message went to Clarice Ferguson instead, resulting in a lot of screaming and a black eye for Shiro, and Pietro Maximoff was given a temporary hiatus from house arrest. Nathan Dayspring broke the field trip curse by taking a number of students on an ice-climbing trip that had absolutely no trauma attached. In fact, it proved rather productive as Yvette Petrovic became an Elpis volunteer.

The hostage crisis of Epiphany Frosts was followed by another - the kidnapping of the President's daughters by a militant mutant group calling themselves Magnetic North. This X-Men mission proved to be successful in more ways than one - it was Siryn and Blink's first mission as full team, and Garrison overcame the trauma generated by his 'failure' in Russia to talk one of the hostage takers down and enable another to be captured. This success was followed by another as Red X were called out to help with evacuations following an ice storm that immobilised Kansas City. The mission spurred Pietro to consider becoming an X-Man, much to the unhappiness of Logan, and encouraged others like Yvette to consider joining the program.

Lorna Dane's quest to find her sister continued to frustrate her, to the point David Haller suggested she ask Sofia Mantega-Barret for help. Bobby Drake and Theresa Cassidy found themselves facing a conundrum over a wedding gift from Sean Cassidy - custody of Cassidy Keep. They decided that Bobby would move over there and take care of things whilst Terry commuted back and forth in a similar manner to Paige Guthrie. The final move, however, was halted only a few days later.

Things took a turn for the shockingly worse, however, when terrorists calling themselves the Preservers, attacked several mutant-human friendly targets, including the Elpis office in Tel Aviv. Angelo Espinosa had been visiting the Pack and others at the time, and only Domino's powers saved them both. Nathan, Pete Wisdom and Amanda Sefton immediately flew to Tel Aviv to assist, with Medusa Amaquelin and an army of Attilani clerks taking on the task of rebuilding Elpis, who lost all their new staff in the explosion. X-Force did their best to uncover the bombers, frustrated by the lack of physical evidence, such as explosive residue. One positive thing came of the incident - it proved the motivation Amanda needed to finally tell Angelo her feelings for him, and to her surprise, they were reciprocated, although his personal trauma meant he was unable to fully verbalise or act on it.
