2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014




New mansion arrival Wade Wilson immediately made a splash, flirting with almost every female (and not a few males) over twenty he encountered. Sarah Vale's return was more subdued, although Doug Ramsey had a small wiggins that the technopath was back at the school. The long lost Nicholas Gleason was found by Julian Keller and Kurt Sefton, although he had no memory of his life beyond the last six months or so and called himself 'John'.

Marie-Ange Colbert was pushed to act on her visions of death and disaster when the remnants of Strucker's people appeared to be preparing a chemical weapon attack in Louisiana. While some of her former X-Force teammates investigated the Initiative's activities, Marie-Ange assassinated Shirow Ishihara, brother to the leader of the Forger's Guild, in order to prevent his mutation being used to kill millions of people. What she had not foreseen was that Remy LeBeau and Amanda Sefton would come to her rescue, with Nico Minoru in tow - Tante Mattie had sent the visiting Amanda and Nico to bring Marie-Ange back home, although Doug wasn't ready for the surprise. X-Force went through other changes too, with Carmilla Black joining their ranks and Illyana Rasputin departing for further studies in Oxford, while Doug continued to rebuild the bridges burned after the events of Revenant.

X-Factor found themselves in deeper than they expected, when their investigation into a series of deaths and disappearances in District X led them to a battle with Sauron. With the aid of Kyle Gibney, they managed to subdue him enough for SHIELD to take him into custody. Tensions in the 'mutant ghetto' remained high in the aftermath.

The X-Men gained a new full member as Yvette Petrovic received her tags, taking on the code name "Penance", while new trainee Doreen Green was dubbed "Rocky". At the end of the month, a potential lead into the Alpha Flight massacre came to light, with a team heading to Madripoor to meet with Tim Dugan.

Warren Worthington began thinking about 'coming out' of the mutant closet, tired of hiding the truth. Kevin Ford made the astounding discovery his powers did have an off-switch; following a series of tests done following months of his powers acting strangely, Henry McCoy informed him that he might one day learn at least partial control. Coupled with the first showing of his art in a gallery, Kevin's future was looking much brighter, reflected by a more playful and flirty change in his demeanor.

Vanessa Carlysle and Alexander Lexington broke up following a misunderstanding, with Lex taking it very hard while Vanessa drowned her sorrows over a series of nights. She also began a 'friends with benefits' relationship with Warren and found herself attracted to newcomer Wade, who was also having a fling with Warren. Jean-Paul Beaubier and Kevin continued to be intimate, while Kevin and Laura Kinney reached an understanding that once Laura was less gun-shy about a relationship, they would consider becoming a couple. And John Allerdyce and Amara Aquilla went on their first date.
